Sculk – Sculk is a new animated, textured block that will drop experience when broken. It will only spawn in Deep Dark Biome and around the Sculk Catalyst.
Sculk Shrieker – Sculk Shrieker is a new block that is very creepy, to be honest. It will also spawn in Deep Dark biomes and has the ability to shriek when its sculk sensor detects anything. It can summon the Warden if it is not present within 48 blocks.
Sculk Catalyst- It is a new block that spawns in the same area as Sculk and has an appearance of Sculk on top and Bone like material from mid to bottom. Sculk Catalyst spreads sculk around a dead mob.
Mangrove blocks – Mangroove is the new block, which will spawn in the Swamps from Mangrove trees. When a Mangrove tree breaks it will drop the Mangroove Log, which can craft Mangroove related blocks like Mangrove Planks.
Mud – A new block coming to the Wild Update is Mud. It will spawn in the Swamps. When Mud block is crafted with the Sand and Wheat block, it will create a Mud Brick block.
The blocks are an important thing in Minecraft, but what makes it more fun is the mobs or the NPCs. We will now list all the new mob characters arriving in the Wild Update.
Warden – A new mob character that will live in the Deep Dark biome. With a height of 3.5 blocks, Warden is the only mob that will live in the Deep Dark. When the Sculk Shrieker shrieks, the Warden will spawn from the ground. It is a fully blind character and can only search the players or mob from vibrations or Sculk Shrieker. When in contact with the sunlight, the Warden will burn and die. Dev has said that this mob will be a difficult opponent during the fight, and the players must avoid it.
Allay – A new support mob character for the player. It will find and carry the dropped blocks and items in a chunk or a stack.
Fireflies – Fireflies glow in dark places. They are the shortest mob at two pixels long and are 2d characters.
Frog – The frog will come in three different colors Orange, Green, and Gray. They grow from the tadpoles. They jump on the lily pad and big dripleaves and can swim. A frog will drop slime balls and froglights when it eats slimes and small magma cubes.
