What if strongholds were stealth dungeons? Whether you're sneaking around or facing it head-on, just remember, the stronghold is more afraid of you than you are of it.


The Watchers
Watchers always spawn as a tag team. They work together in pairs to monitor the stronghold. The sculk watcher is the alarm and whichever other watcher it is paired up with is the scout.

The Sculk Watcher
This mob is like an eyeball security camera. It attaches itself to the ceiling with its tendrils and looks around for players. As long as you're behind solid blocks it can't see you. If it sees you it will start making trilling noises like an alarm to alert the silverfish-infested blocks around it.

Obsidian Watcher
One of the Watchers that can spawn with the Sculk Watcher. It is a purple eye that phases through walls and cries obsidian tears of weakness II. If it cries on you it will give you the effect.

End Watcher
A watcher that can spawn with the Sculk Watcher. It is a green eye that phases through walls and cries glowing tears. If it cries on you it will give you the glowing effect. This effect allows the Sculk Watcher to see you through the wall if you're within range.

Silverfish

Think of silverfish like the queen in a hive. Each infested block (in the stronghold only) has one silverfish and multiple endermites that break out of that block when called upon by the sculk watcher or if a silverfish gets hurt (unless it's oneshoted). Silverfish stats have been buffed slightly (even outside of the stronghold). They also deal less knockback than most mobs which allows them to hit you faster.

Shelled Endermite

Similar to endermen, these endermites have an odd liking for blocks. They can be seen wearing infested chiseled stone bricks on their backs like a shell. You will notice these do not appear to spawn with a silverfish because it has infested the block on its back. You can use a fishing rod to yank the block off its back or innovate other ways to get around its shell.

Redstone

The corpses of the watchers can be stored in stasis chambers just like ender pearls can in vanilla. They continue to function as they did when they were alive, so go right ahead and make a farm out of it. Sculk Watchers are particularly useful for automating silverfish mining.

Loot
Sculk Watchers drop Sculk Sensors.
Silk touch can be used to obtain only infested chiseled stone bricks.
Coming Soon: Updated chest loot

Maybe? It'll depend on how they changed the stronghold. If they overwrote the stronghold it should work, but if they removed the stronghold and added the updated structure to replace it then Minecraft probably won't consider it a stronghold. The pack uses that same code for detecting the stronghold that one of Minecraft's vanilla advancements uses to detect when you enter the stronghold.

Do monsters usually come out of caves?

Monsters come out from places other than the stronghold

Please make sure you are using 1.19 and that you have downloaded the latest version of the pack. Versions before 1.19 are no longer supported.

That shouldn't be happening. I'll do some testing.



Edit: Tested it and did not get this result.

Sadly no. Mojang changed the syntax for detecting the location of a structure using a predicate, which means its no longer compatible with older versions.
