Minecraft Dungeons took some basic features of Minecraft and ran with them. It maintains several aspects of the original game, but it also has a ton of new features and items that are well beyond what standard Minecraft offers. This is a big reason why so many players have played the hit dungeon crawler since it was released in 2020.

One of those aspects is souls, which are only present in Minecraft Dungeons. Souls are useful in the game, but can only be acquired in certain ways. Here's how to get them and what to use them for.

Getting souls in Minecraft Dungeons

Souls are a consumable item in Minecraft Dungeons. They can be obtained by killing mobs and later be used as a power source for certain artifacts that require souls.

A true adventurer puts their soul into everything they do. And the truest adventurers put other people’s souls in it, too!

Souls can only be collected while an artifact is equipped that can use them, so they are often not collected. Additionally, some armor, enchantments and weapons can increase the amount of souls you get from killing a single mob. Also, no souls will be collected if the player kills mobs with an artifact that uses them.

There are already plenty of lost souls dwelling the dungeons, so you might as well add another shockwave’s worth!
