HermitCraft is a vanilla and modded Minecraft server that was started in April of 2012 by Generikb. Much like other Minecraft Survival Multiplayer servers, it is whitelisted, meaning only certain members can join if they are invited.

As they have been around since 2012, they have gone through a total of eight Minecraft worlds, and are technically now on their eighth season. Minecraft YouTubers and streamers who are recognized by members on the server and XisumaVoid, who is the current admin on the server, get invited.

HermitCraft has been around for a very long time, and getting all the information on it can be pretty hard due to its many seasons and many members. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of everything players need to know about HermitCraft.

HermitCraft is a vanilla and modded Minecraft Survival Multiplayer server, with around 26 active members, although the number fluctuates. Members of HermitCraft are called Hermits, and there is a website dedicated to HermitCraft, that each Hermit can upload their videos and livestreams to. HermitCraft is widely known for its players' massive builds, fun pranks and collaborative events such as server-wide events.

However, there is a lot that HermitCraft does outside of the Minecraft world as well. HermitCraft is known for raising money for charities such as Love Tropics, SOS Africa, and the Make a Wish foundation. The hermits also make appearances at Minecon and other in-person events.

HermitCraft has just begun season 8 on June 19, 2021 and is on the new 1.17 version of Minecraft. The seed for this new world is -7381235180058670651, for players who might want to replicate builds or try to survive on the same map as the Hermits. There have been 2 new players that joined this season: GeminiTay and PearlescentMoon.

Since the season is still fresh, there have not been many exciting events yet. Most of the Hermits have joined together to make their homes in different areas of the map, some of which are absolutely stunning and huge, so it will be interesting to see what happens as time goes on.
