Which Is The Best Biome To Spawn In?



This idea struck me when I decided to venture into survival mode for the first time in six months, only to be brutally reminded that lava is more suited to burning down your house and killing you than being used for pretty decoration. But before returning to creative mode in a fit of rage I realised that if I had spawned somewhere else, things might have gone a bit better. This led me to think of the advantages and disadvantages that every biome could possibly have.


And since there are so many people joining the game for the first time, this information should still come in handy. If you can think of anything I may have missed, tell me in the comments! Happy spawning!


  • Forests contain an abundance of wood, and reveal a nice flat landscape when chopped down. With so many saplings available, you can plant your own tree farm (if thato s a thing) and have a sustainable source of wood, which is the most adaptable building material. (ENDLESS FENCES! ENDLESS HATCHES! ENDLESS LADDERS!?) You can also create tree houses and stuff. However, mobs spawn frequently in the areas of darkness under trees. Youo re vulnerable as it takes a while to clear enough trees to build a base.
  • Jungles have loads of wood. Surprisingly. And again, TREE HOUSES. YES. Also, youo ll find cocoa beans here that go with wheat to make COOKIES. YES. AND CAKES, if you get milk and eggs as well. For the people that like staring at animals, there are ocelots in jungles. However, theyo re difficult to walk through.
  • Swamps have mushrooms. They fill your stomach. Mushroom stew really is a novelty in Minecraft. You may also plant them and use bone meal to get giant mushrooms. However, too dark and miserable.
  • Snow biomes are just like forests, with great resources but also the added bonus of prettiness. You can also find yourself a wolf here. However, all the water you need just turns to ice. Ito s impractical to live here; how are you going to survive without a cobblestone generator and buckets of water to cushion your landings/collect items/put out fires etc.?
  • Plains are great for building and ito s easy to escape mobs on the wide open spaces here. Flowers can also be used for decoration, and trees usually aren't far off. NO DISADVANTAGES.
  • Desertso the only place where you can make sandstone, an exotic building block. The abundance of sand can be used to make glass. Mobs aren't as common here and villages/temples/desert wells are all very pretty and a nice place to start building near. Cacti can be used as defences/walls. Sugar cane is more commonly found. Large open spaces for building. However, NO TREES? This means the end of the world.




As for the others, I've never spawned in or been near a mushroom biome so I can't comment on that. Extreme hills are just like plains and oceans can't be spawned in either, plus you can't survive in just ocean. Again, surprising stuff.

For the purposes of productivity, forests are probably the best biome to spawn in. And when you get bored of seeing greenery, you can always explore a neighboring biome, get lost and quit survival mode out of sheer frustration. Like I've done.

You know what would be perfect? I'd love to spawn in a plains biome (to build), with a huge mountain range in front of you (to explore), a forest and a desert on either side of you with an ocean behind you. Then you'd have the best of all worlds.


Anywho, as I said, comment your ideas if you have any, and please diamond, favorite and subscribe if you liked this or found it useful! (I apologize for the shortness of this blog, but check out my other articles if you want more Soggy words).

I went down and punched down underground until I reached an abondend mine. Then I got wood and used the materials to make an artificial island

*got wood* exactly, you went to chop trees down on the mainland. So you didn't survive 'just' in the ocean. ;o
