Minecraft Live, the biggest official event of the year, is taking place on October 16, 2021. Last month, Mojang officially announced that there would be a mob vote during the Minecraft Live event.
The much-awaited Minecraft Live 2021 is only a few days away. Mojang will showcase the new features planned for the Minecraft 1.19 update. Even though the Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update is two months away, developers are now busy planning content for the 1.18 update.
Minecraft 1.19 will be officially revealed this coming Saturday, October 13. During Minecraft Live 2021, players from all over the world will get to vote for a mob out of three. Yesterday, Mojang revealed the second candidate for Mob Vote 2021: Allay.
Minecraft Mob Vote 2021: New information about Allay, the second candidate
Allay, the second candidate for Minecraft Mob Vote 2021, looks similar to dangerous vexes. However, their personality and behavior are entirely different compared to vexes. Allays are friendly creatures who will collect items from players.
Allays are small and friendly vex-like spirits. Players can give it an item to hold, and the allay will collect all such items in a certain radius around the player. After hearing its unique ability, the entire Minecraft community, at least the technical members, fell in love with allay.
After an allay is given an item, it will wander off to obtain that type of item. After collecting, Minecrafters can play note blocks to make allays drop all the items picked up. This means that players can use allays as a simple item sorter/hopper.
As soon as Mojang revealed the second mob candidate, redstone engineers became busy thinking about all the possible farms and contraptions they could make using allays. The community also began asking questions and making false assumptions. Minecraft developer Kingbdogz answered multiple queries about allays.
New information about allay
The official mob trailer for allay didn't reveal much and left many players to their imagination. The first thought many players had after learning allay's ability was using it for item duplication. Kingdogz debunked the idea by tweeting:
Furthermore, he said allay cannot get items from chests. It is only capable of picking items lying on the ground. Allay would also not give the first item it takes for searching. Let's say a player gives an allay one diamond and has 15 diamonds lying around them. Allay will only return 15 diamonds, not the initial one.
Kingbdogz confirmed that allays could only hold a stack of items. It can also carry unstackable items, but only one at a time. Allays will only search for items in the loaded chunks. However, these features may change if allay wins the mob vote.
