The new Minecraft update 1.17 Cliffs & Caves brings you the top five new exciting additions.
Mojang just released the first part of the new Minecraft 1.17 update, and players are already spending their time exploring the improved Overworld. The Cliffs & Caves update has plenty of exciting content for the game. Here are the outstanding additions in the recent update, but first, here is the trailer for it:
The axolotl is the most distinguished addition to the Minecraft world. Players are highly excited about this creature for great reason. This cute mob spawn in underwater pockets of water at the moment.
It attacks most aquatic life to acquire food for the players, especially if it encounters a school of fish. It can also be taken up and put in a bucket. If it is scooped using a bucket, axolotls can no longer be despawned. What’s more, players can attach a lead to it to avoid it from wandering off, missing, and getting hurt.
Copper is ranked the second most exciting addition in the first part of the update. Players have been waiting for this element to appear in the game. Now that it is here, finally, they can begin to build and craft with it.
The element can help craft spyglasses and lightning rods, which are also new additions to the game. Players can use the spyglass to scout out vast land areas. Moreover, it has multiple variants, making it a versatile building block. Minecraft players can create a copper build to turn green or wax it to ensure they stay shiny.
3. Glow Squid
Another mob this update released is the Glow Squid. This creature glows out in the dark and emits sparkly particles. To add, it can drop Glow Ink Sacs, which are necessary for making super bright LED signs.
The glow squid can be seen in underground water reserves. It is pretty small and not too many, so be alert if planning to acquire one.
The Amethyst Geode is another excellent addition to the game. Players who are planning to collect new amethyst items are required to have these structures first.
Geodes are the one and only source of calcite and amethyst in the game. To find it, the player shall mine and harvest it once encountered. They are rare, and it takes patience to gather them. Once acquired, players can craft the spyglass.
For the last new great addition, Minecraft added the goat. This animal is one of the anticipated mobs in the latest update.
The goat is aggressive in nature, seeking out any unfamiliar beings nearby, then ramming them. Their approach can be perilous if the player is in an already dangerous area, especially near the mountain where goats usually live.
