Ghasts are Minecraft mobs that originate in the Nether. They are large grayish-white floating mob that look like huge jellyfish.
Many players wonder why ghasts are "sad," because of how sad they look and the fact that the tears they drop are fireballs. Ghasts are sad because no one wants to hang out with a fire-breathing ghost.
Ghasts are more useful than players may know of in Minecraft. There are multiple things players can use ghasts for, but may not know about. Ghasts also drop items that may be resourceful to players later in the game.
Ghast tears can be used for numerous things in Minecraft. Players can obtain ghast tears by slaying the ghast. The mob will drop 0-1 ghast tears upon death.
