Episode 116: Minecraft Live 2021 Final Predictions The Withering Effect – Minecraft Podcast

Summary

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot 21w40a for Minecraft 1.18, Caves & Cliffs, which includes a range of world generation tweaks and more changes to mob spawning. Plus, we ran a poll on Spotify to find out what our listeners think Minecraft 1.19 will be and the response didn’t surprise us, but we have to disagree. We also asked ‘What’s your favourite thing about Minecraft Dungeons?’ and got some good responses from The Labseor and Blackhole Nerd. Also, DuDs and Jimbo discuss their ‘gimme’ prediction for Minecraft Live, predictions for what the theme could be for Minecraft 1.19, and a ‘where did that come from?’ wildcard prediction.
