Minecraft Xbox 360 Patch 1.8.2 Guide – Combat, Structures, Mobs

By   /   3 years ago

Combat
Blocking mitigates the damage you take from zombie punches, spider bites and other melee attacks. It even saves you from arrows and explosions. However, it does have one disadvantage to it while blocking your movement speed is reduced too. So you are likely to receive more attacks.

Structure and Terrain Types
Ravines: Too lazy to tunnel your way to natural resources are you? Well, ravines were made just for you then. These are very narrow valleys between mountains or just massive cracks in the grounds.

What is best about them is that they have already cut through the surface all you have to do is go to their bottoms and collect whatever treasures you can find. Remember that you will have to carve a staircase yourself to reach the depth of the ravine.

Forgotten Mineshafts: When you go down these mineshafts be prepared to come face to face with cave spiders and fake dead ends made of gravel. Not all is bad down here as you may find treasures like diamonds, melee seeds and other unique items.

These mineshafts are a lot like a maze so bring along torches to mark the way you came in from. It may not be a bad idea to repair the railroads to provide you a safe and quick way back up top.

As these mineshafts are filled with spiders, they are also filled with cobwebs, which provide an ample supply of strings for you. There are also safe zones in these mineshafts where enemies can’t spawn; these are marked by an already lit torch.

Strongholds: These are the most desirable new structures to be introduced in this new patch. These are basically vast underground halls compromising of Libraries, prison cells, storage rooms and many others.

Once you have looted these strongholds you may want to make it your home but first remember to clear it out from all enemies. A maximum of three appear per world.

Villages: This is a small collection of various buildings from where you can collect various resources. These building s include the blacksmiths, a butcher’s shop, a church, farm, a village well and a library. From time to time, you will also be required to defend the village from zombie raids and such.

Villagers are also present in the villages, and many of them are defined by the clothes they wear for e.g. Butchers wear aprons, librarians wear robes. Remember they are capable of spawning iron golems so think about that when you decide to go on a killing spree.

Rivers Or Oceans
Great source of clay nothing much else really.

Enemies
Endermen: Endermen all hail from the dread realm called “The End.” That realm as far as we know is not accessible in this update for the Xbox version of Minecraft. Most of the time they do not bother you, but if you attack them or even stare at them for too long they might get offended.

They cannot be hurt by arrows and also have the ability to teleport. All in all, they are thoroughly bad asses of the game. However, if you kill them, you may be rewarded with Ender Pearls which in turn gives you the ability of teleportation.

When fighting them just do not let them catch you, there’s a chance it’ll warp into lava or water.

Cave Spiders: They may be smaller than normal spiders, but they are sure as hell a lot meaner. Their ability to move without slowing down through cobwebs makes them exceedingly dangerous. Usually they are found in Mineshafts.

You may want to flood these mineshafts with lava to kill them before you even meet them. Their venom inflicts half a heart of damage about every second and a half, for around seven to 15 seconds depending on the difficulty.

Silverfish: These monsters disguise themselves as cobblestone, stone and brick. They are not that harmful but can be a great nuisance though. Note whenever you are mining with your hands, and the block is disintegrating quicker than usual it is probably a Silverfish.
