Top 5 mobs to tame in Minecraft 1.18 update
Taming certain animal mobs in Minecraft has been a feature for years, but new players are constantly joining Minecraft and will be playing the new Minecraft 1.18 update for the first time.
Keeping this in mind, these are the 5 best mobs to tame in Minecraft.
Parrots are amusing little passive mobs who are only found in the jungle biome. They are fascinating multi-colored creatures and can be tamed by feeding them seeds. After they are tamed, they will follow players anywhere they go. They can also sit on the player's shoulders and mimic sounds of various hostile mobs as a prank.
Horses are another mob which can be tamed by players. They are excellent for traversing through land, as horses can easily climb mountains, jump high, and ride fast.
In the Minecraft 1.18 update, horses can be lured in if a player is holding a golden apple, enchanted golden apple or a golden carrot. These food items can also be used to breed horses.
Cats are one of the best mobs in Minecraft 1.18 update. Cats can be found in all types of villages, and are tamed with raw cod or salmon. The only tricky part is that players will have to sneak or chase a cat and feed it enough food to tame them. Cats are excellent, as creepers are afraid of cats and won't come near.
Another brilliant mob for pets are Wolves. These can be found in forests and usually spawn in packs of four. They can be tamed by feeding them bones. They are an excellent ally to players, as wolves can fight various hostile mobs.
Axolotls are rare friendly mobs that were introduced in the Minecraft 1.17 update and only spawned in the Lush Cave Biome from Minecraft 1.18 update. These cute predators can be tamed with a tropical fish. Although they can't be completely tamed, players can gain their trust and they won't be despawned.
