Sculk in Minecraft

Sculk is a new block that was introduced to Minecraft in update v1.19. These blocks provide the players with plenty of experience, but they can also spread out of control. Knowing where sculk blocks can be found and how they interact with other things can help you take full advantage of sculk blocks.

How to get sculk blocks?


Players can easily find sculk in the deep dark caves biome as it spawns quite commonly there. It can also be found in ancient cities, or as a dropped item when intimidating a warden. Structures such as the Warden’s cabin also have sculk blocks inside. There is no specific tool to mine sculk blocks, but a hoe is the quickest. The only way to pick up a sculk block is by mining it with a tool enchanted with Silk Touch.

What is the use of sculk?


Sculk is a luminescent block, but it does not provide any light values. Any sculk block that is mined will drop 1 experience. This can help you increase the amount of experience you gain by replacing some blocks in mob spawners with sculk catalysts. While sculk blocks are primarily used for decoration, any mob that dies within 8 blocks of a sculk catalyst will replace all blocks in the area with sculk blocks. Taking advantage of blocks that can give you experience can shorten the time required to enchant or repair your gear.


Conclusion


Sculk blocks are primarily used for decorative purposes, but they also have unique effects that can provide the player with experience orbs. These blocks can spread if a mob dies within 8 blocks of it.
