Have you tried out any of the best Deep Dark Seeds for exploring the new cave biome?
Minecraft is known for having almost unlimited possibilities. You can spend hundreds of hours doing activities like hunting, fighting, building, or gathering resources. Another thing that may take just as much time is exploring the virtually unlimited world of Minecraft. You can pretty much run in a straight line for hours without reaching the end.
That being said, there are also several different biomes in the game, with new ones being introduced repeatedly. The Deep Dark Cave biome was introduced in the 1.19 update. Considering the sheer size of Minecraft’s world, it may be too difficult to find it manually. Thankfully, Minecraft has spawn seeds that you can use to spawn into the biome that you want from the beginning.
If you are looking to explore this brand-new biome, check out our quick guide on the best Deep Dark Seeds for Bedrock and Java in Minecraft 1.19.
Deep Dark Cave Biome
The Deep Dark is a brand new cave biome introduced during Minecraft update 1.19. It can be found really deep down in the underground part of the Overworld. The Overworld is where most players spawn in and is the most frequented dimension, so it makes sense to have the Deep Dark in this area. As its name suggests, this biome is very dimly lit, so bring a lot of torches if you can. All you need to make a torch is a Stick and Coal or Charcoal.
The Deep Dark cave biome is classified as Rare, which means it is much harder to find than most of the other biomes. Being underground, the blocks you will find in this biome are Sculk, Sculk Vein, Sculk Sensor, Sculk Catalyst, and Sculk Shrieker. Lava and Sculk Catalysts are the only light sources in this biome, so make sure to bring some of your own.
Sculk is a renewable, stackable block that is quite abundant in the Deep Dark. Used typically for decoration, this block is best mined with a Hoe. Sculk Veins are glowing blocks that can be placed on the sides of a block to give it a glow effect. Sculk Sensor is a special block that detects vibration and emits a redstone signal. A unique block in the Deep Dark is the Sculk Catalyst which converts blocks around it into Sculk-type blocks when a mob dies near it. Finally, the Sculk Shrieker emits a shrieking noise when someone steps on it, summoning a Warden in the process.
There are no mobs that spawn in the Deep Dark except in dungeons. You can, however, spawn the Warden by triggering a Sculk Shrieker several times. It can also be quite dangerous if you accidentally fall into the lava. The most important feature of the Deep Dark biome is its potential to generate an Ancient City. Players are constantly looking for these structures because they have chests that contain exclusive items.
Best Deep Dark Seeds
Getting a good seed is extremely important if you have specific biomes you want to find in Minecraft. Fortunately, players have found great seeds for those looking to find Ancient Cities in the Deep Dark biome. With these, you can start off a new game very close to Ancient Cities and no longer have to search mindlessly for hours in the dangerous world of Minecraft.
Here are the best Deep Dark seeds for Bedrock and Java in Minecraft 1.19.
