Minecraft 1.21 update release date revealed

The Tricky Trials update is said to be one of the most impactful and important updates the game has seen in years. The update adds a ton of different items and mobs to the game. It will also introduce the trial chambers, a new palatial structure where a new challenge awaits.

The trial chambers will house the Breeze, a hostile mob that is considerably similar to the Blaze found in the Nether castle. The Breeze uses wind attacks and is quite challenging to defeat, but definitely worth it. It will drop the Breeze rod and the wind charge when defeated.

Players can then unlock the vault using the trial key, two new items coming to the game with the update. The vault can contain many interesting and rare items, but the one to look for is the heavy core block.

The heavy core block, yet another addition in the upcoming update, can be used with the breeze rod to make the powerful new weapon mace. The mace is supposed to be the most powerful weapon in Minecraft.

Apart from this, the update brings another hostile mob called the bogged and it is a new skeleton variant that can be found in the swamp and the trial chambers.
