The Warden is a new mob that will come to Minecraft with the 1.18 update later this year. It is a blind mob that can sense vibrations and sounds. If he attacks you, he can kill you even through Netherite armor with just two hits. Since he doesn’t drop any valuable loot when defeated, escape is the best option for the most part.
You can’t always win
With the Caves and Cliffs update, Minecraft gets new vanilla content after a long time. While the first part – update 1.17 – was already released on June 8, the second part will be released towards the end of 2021. With Caves and Cliffs, new biomes, mobs, and materials await you in Minecraft. The Warden is waiting for you in the depths, is twice the size of your character, and takes on the role of a natural disaster rather than a boss.
How the Warden notices you
The Warden is the first blind mob in Minecraft. As long as you are quiet and don’t mine or place anything near him, he won’t notice you. However, with the help of his Skulk Sensor Blocks, he will react to any noise made and deal significant damage that will kill you in two hits with Netherite Armor and even in one hit otherwise. Once the Warden has noticed you, you can try to distract him. To do this, you’ll have to create sounds from a direction other than your own. You can do this by throwing snowballs, for example. The Warden will sense the impact and run in the appropriate direction, which will give you time to escape.
How to notice the Warden
If you now want to embark on the quest to track down and kill the Warden, be warned: The Warden is extremely difficult to defeat, and since he doesn’t drop any valuable loot, it’s not worth the fight. Instead, you should try to avoid any encounter with him. Two warning signs will help you to notice the presence of a Warden in time, before you make noise and attract him. First, all light sources start to flicker when a Warden is nearby. So, if you suddenly notice a flickering of your torches underground, keep quiet! Also, the Warden has a distinct audible heartbeat. If you hear it, look around and try to spot the warden to avoid him.
Escape from the Warden
So far, we don’t know much more about the new Minecraft Warden Mob either. It’s essentially a large monster underground that attacks and kills anything that makes noise. We wish you a lot of fun with your escape from the Warden!
