Minecraft enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Breeze, a new mob set to debut in the upcoming 1.21 update in 2024. Mojang offered a sneak peek in October 2023, swiftly followed by the release of snapshots and beta previews for players to explore and test. Let’s delve into the known features and behaviors of the intriguing Breeze mob.
Breeze Spawns in Trial Chambers
The Breeze is an elusive entity that exclusively graces the depths of trial chambers. These underground structures are adorned with numerous rooms and halls, with the Breeze finding its home in specific halls where unique trial spawners are situated.
Breeze Spawns from Trial Spawners Surrounded by Chiseled Tuff Blocks
Trial spawners are the gatekeepers to Breeze encounters, and they come with their own set of conditions. The Breeze, in its ethereal form, emerges only from trial spawners enveloped by the newly introduced chiseled tuff blocks. This adds an element of exclusivity to the spawning mechanics of the Breeze.
Breeze: Hostile in Nature
The Breeze is not one to extend a welcoming hand. From the moment of its manifestation, this new mob adopts a hostile stance, actively seeking out players. Its strategic positioning on elevated platforms adds an additional layer of challenge, making encounters with Breeze a test of wits and combat skills.
Breeze’s Wind Charge Can Be Deflected
Much like the iconic Ghast fireball, the Breeze’s wind charge projectile can be deflected by players. Armed with ranged or melee weapons, players can skillfully redirect incoming wind charge projectiles. Notably, the only projectile that poses a threat is the Breeze’s own wind charge, capable of dealing a modest half-heart worth of damage.
5) Breeze Attacks with Wind Charge Only
The primary method of offense in the Breeze’s arsenal is the wind charge projectile. When unleashed, it causes a substantial air explosion upon impact with players or blocks. The damage, however, stems from the resultant knockback effect rather than a direct hit. The Breeze, at present, relies solely on this wind charge for offensive maneuvers.
Breeze Are Immune to Arrows and Tridents
Engaging Breeze in combat demands a strategic approach. Players relying on arrows or tridents will find their attacks ineffective, as the Breeze exhibits immunity to these projectile assaults. This unique characteristic aligns with the theme of Breeze being wind-related, capable of deflecting conventional ranged attacks.
Breeze’s Wind Charge Can Interact with Certain Blocks
A distinctive feature of the Breeze is its wind charge’s ability to interact with specific blocks within its habitat. Buttons, levers, and trapdoors strategically placed in the halls where Breeze spawns become conduits for the wind charge’s influence. For instance, a wind charge can trigger a button on a dispenser, setting off a chain reaction of events.
