Mob farms are one of the most useful builds that a Minecraft player can create. They provide endless resources and XP - two things every player needs to be able to defeat the difficult late-game bosses.

While almost every mob can be effectively farmed, some mobs are more highly recommended due to the resources and XP that they drop.

Skeleton farms are one of the easiest and most efficient farms a player can create due to the variety of drops that they produce.

Players who hate crafting arrows are suggested to create a Skeleton Spawner.

Skeletons drop the following items:

  • 0-2 Bones
  • 0-2 Arrows
  • Naturally Spawned Equipment (8.5% chance)
  • 5 XP

#4 - Blazes

Due to the necessity of obtaining Blaze Rods, Blazes are an amazing mob to farm.

Blazes come in at #4 due to the difficulty of building a farm in the dangerous Nether, although it will certainly be worth it due to their high XP drop.

Blazes drop the following items:

  • 0-1 Blaze Rod
  • 10 XP

Pigs are a wonderful mob to farm due to their food drops.

Pigs drop Porkchops (as well as 1-3 XP), which fulfill five Hunger points, as well as 12.8 hunger saturation. Due to this, Cooked Porkchops are some of the most efficient food a player can have on them.


#2 - Bartering

One of the best Minecraft mob farms a player can make is a Piglin Bartering Farm, which will produce tons of amazing items.

These farms can be set up to automatically dispense Gold to the Piglin, which will then trade it for a random item. In the image seen above, the player has tons of storage for the Gold and Items.


#1 - Enderman
