The Badlands Biome is one of Minecrafts newer Biomes, and was known as the Mesa up until it was renamed in Minecraft Version 1.13. There are 6 different variations of the Badlands.
What you should know about the Badlands is that they are hot, and for this reason, there isn't much water or nature. It will not rain in this biome, and no passive mobs will spawn, it's basically a desolate wasteland.
Most of the blocks are made up of Terracotta, making it a good place to gather materials. Ores and Mine-shafts also spawn more frequently and at higher levels, occasionally you will see Mine-shafts which have spawned above ground.
It's a harsh place, and probably not somewhere you want to set-up a permanent camp. However, we've put together a list of some of the best seeds anyway that will spawn you either inside, or on the edge of the Badlands.
Woodland Mansions are very rare buildings in Minecraft, which can only be found in Dark Forest Biomes. They're also incredibly hard to fully explore due to the amount of enemies inside, who are Illagers.
The main reason that you might want to explore Woodland Mansions is to collect Totem of Undying, which will save you upon dying. On Hardcore mode, these are a must-have. Other than using seeds, there are a few other ways of locating mansions such as using Woodland Explorer Maps or the /locate mansion command.
The Mansions vary in design, with each one having a unique layout and interior. There is a lot of loot to collect, with the rarest of items being Enchanted Golden Apples, Diamond Chestplates, Gold Ingots and Enchanted Books.
Due to the significance and importance of Woodland Mansions in Minecraft, it's always a good idea to be near one. That's why in this list, we've...
