Wooded Badlands in Minecraft


The badlands biome, previously known as the Mesa biome, is an uncommon desert-like biome. It is made up of terracotta blocks and creates mounds like the hills and mountains in the game. At the peak, patches of grass, coarse dirt, dead bushes, pumpkins and oak trees can be found. The wooded badlands are the forest variant of the badlands. It shares the terrain characteristics of the badlands with the addition of groves of trees.


Description



Wooded badlands are one of the two variants of the badlands biome. It is made up of terracotta blocks of varying hues and has trees dotting the surface. Badlands and its variants are an uncommon sight for Minecraft players. They offer limited resources and necessities like water can be found in small puddles around the biome. Although this biome is not particularly dangerous, it is not recommended to set up base here due to the lack of passive mobs and necessities.


Mobs


Badlands and its derivatives do not support passive mobs like cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and such because the terrain does not support life that much. This is mainly due to the absence of green grass. According to Mojang, passive mobs can only spawn on grass blocks with a light level of nine or above. This takes away all chances of life being present because this biome is made up of terracotta blocks.


Hostile mobs are spawned after dark, including the usual creepers, skeletons, zombies, spiders and witches.


Conclusion


In conclusion, badlands and its variants might offer players a sense of peace and quietness lacking in other more chaotic biomes. But it hardly has life-supporting resources like food and water. The most accessible resources seen are the varying types of terracotta blocks and wood from oak trees. It would take a considerable amount of work to make the landscape accommodating and hospitable.
