2. Beacons and Wither Skeletons

With the addition of the Wither boss, players can now obtain the highly sought-after Nether Star. This rare item can be used to create beacons, which provide powerful buffs to players within their range. To summon the Wither, players will need to collect Wither Skeleton skulls by defeating Wither Skeletons in the Nether. This new feature adds depth to the gameplay and encourages exploration of the dangerous Nether dimension.

3. Ocean Monuments and Guardians

Diving into the depths of Minecraft's oceans will now lead players to discover Ocean Monuments, which house the new hostile mob - the Elder Guardian. These majestic structures offer a challenging adventure, as players must navigate through intricate maze-like rooms while fending off the guardians. Defeating the Elder Guardian rewards players with the precious Prismarine blocks, which can be used for decorative purposes or crafting new items.

4. Exploration Maps

The Boss Update brings a new way to explore the vast Minecraft world with Exploration Maps. These maps can be obtained from cartographer villagers, and they reveal hidden structures and treasures within a specific area.
