Where will Warden and Ancient City appear in the Minecraft 1.19 update?

The release of Minecraft The 1.19 update means that players will finally have access to some of the most anticipated features since the Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update in November 2021.

The Warden was originally scheduled to be released with Minecraft 1.17 in June 2021. However, it ended up being delayed due to various technical difficulties and time-based constraints.

Another feature that the Minecraft 1.19 update brought to the game is the ancient city structure. This structure is a fortress-like building with different sections such as an altar, a tower and secret entrances. It also has a collection of blocks and objects such as soul sand, soul fire and soul lanterns, along with skeleton heads and candles to illuminate the structure.


Locate Warden and Ancient Cities in Minecraft 1.19

Ancient cities can only generate in the Deep Dark biome and are always at Y-level -52. They are quite large and consist of blocks such as deepslate, the newly added reinforced deepslate, basalt and its variants, as well as gray wool blocks.

Reinforced deepslate is mainly used in the construction of “frames” along the walls of the structure. Players can find unique swap chests in this structure, with items that can only be found in this particular place (echo shards, music discs, etc.)

Due to their play environment, most of the area in and around an old town is full of sculk blocks, sculk sensors, sculk catalysts and sculk screamers.

Sculk sensors act as mini-alarm clocks that detect any vibrations around them. From the sound of a player going to the placement of a block, these incredible new blocks can capture almost any form of vibration.

If enough sculk sensors are triggered at once or a significant amount of sound is made by players or bullies, sculk screamers around the area begin to pick up the sound. They will then respond with a frightening scream.

If this scream is triggered continuously, it can cause one Warden (or several Warden) to spawn.

Wardens, as Minecraft players know, only exist in Deep limit biome, which means players have to be extra careful when exploring this mysterious and eerie structure.

The Warden is the strongest mob in the game, with a health bar of 500 HP, which is significantly larger than a Withers or even an ender dragons. In fact, the mob is so powerful that it can kill a player with full armor from the Netherlands in two hits.

Warden has a wealth of attacks and abilities. While the most powerful is obviously the melee attack, it also has a secondary range attack that can damage a player through multiple layers of blocks.

A Warden’s abilities include an enhanced sense of smell, which allows it to chase its prey (players and other mobs).

An ability that Warden brings to the game acts as a whole new status effect known as Darkness.

Whenever a Warden starts to get closer to a player, the status effect of Darkness takes over. When this happens, everything around the player darkens and begins to pulsate.

Not even daylight prevents the Darkness effect from creating a complete blackout. It is for these reasons that Warden should be avoided in Minecraft rather than fighting.
