Deep Dark Biome

The Deep Dark is one of the new subterranean biomes that you can encounter in the 1.19 update to Java Minecraft. This biome is home to Ancient Cities, the imposing Warden, and provides access to sculk blocks. The biome is defined by the dark and spotted texture of sculk blocks around the area. Be careful where you walk, for the warden could be nearby if you are able to see the sculk blocks.



Where to find the Deep Dark in Minecraft?


There is no certain way to locate deep dark biomes in your world. The best way to find it is to dig and search through deep caves, searching for dim light sources like a soul torch or soul lantern.


How to Find Ancient Cities in Minecraft


Once you have located a deep dark biome, look around the immediate area for any generated structures, or sights of dim lights from soul torches. You can press F3 to check what biome you are in to be confident that you are searching in the right area.



There are many distinctly generated structures in the deep dark and they can be seen easily from a distance. The problem is getting into the position from where you can see them in the first place. Many of these locations and structures will be dimly lit, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.


What Spawns in the Deep Dark?


You can find blocks of sculk, sculk sensors, the warden, and enormous generated structures in the deep dark. No other mob spawns naturally in the deep dark, but trigger enough sculk shriekers and you may find yourself chased by a warden!



What can you find in the Deep Dark?


The deep dark is covered in luminescent blocks called sculk. Many of these blocks can trigger sound signals which can alert the warden or trigger redstone pulses. There are sculk shriekers, sensors, and sculk catalysts. All of them can be collected with any tool, but hoes are the fastest at breaking sculk blocks.



Any time you mine sculk blocks you will obtain experience. Sculk catalysts can even generate more sculk blocks for yourself to use for redstone contraptions or for simply farming experience.


Conclusion


Congratulations, you now know just about everything there is to know about the deep dark. This new biome is uncommon to find and can be dangerous to explore. However, there are many exciting utilizations with wireless redstone thanks to sculk blocks and sensors. There are also large generated structures to explore and conquer.
