  • The Silverfish Hord is in the 2nd and 3rd Bowl. Watch out.
  • You have some Potions when you start the game, don't use them yet. Later they will be very useful.
  • You have some bones, you can use them at the beginning to tame some wolves :)
  • It is also good to light up the surface on first bowl, a lot of mobs will spawn, even during daytime.

    While it is techniqnically against the map rules wi leave the bowls. I would like to point out that if you load the map in minecraft v1.8....

    A Guardian Temple spawns very close by ABOVE sealevel.

    In my thinking this makes the map even more awesome, as you now have a boss battle to prepare form after conqueuring the bowls themselves!

    I am glad you actually like the unplaned feature haha, but as you can see;  this map was map was made long bevore 1.8 and with the new world generations some things messend up. I am not sure yet if I will update all my maps, but maybe one day I will decide to do so. Adding some guardiands under the bowls sounds actually like a cool idea hehe.

    You may like to look at my skyblock base, the idea for which that came about from seeing your 'bowls'...

    This... Is Skyblock?

    The islands are online and guests can visit on the CubeKrowd Skyblock server.
