Mobs and Resources


Aquastone can be obtained by fishing, every time you fish a treasure you'll also get an aquastone, I'f used for the water related swords

Primal Rock

Obtained by mining, the ore generates everywhere in the overworld, looks like stone buts it's texture changes every few seconds as you can see in the images. Its used for the earth related swords

Air Crystal

Dropped for the windzard, use on the air related swords

Windzards are "alive phantoms" they spawn during the day, they are neutral, if you attack one clones of it will start spawning to attack you, if you or the windzard dies the clones disappear

Blaze Ingot

Dropped for the wildfire, used in the fire related swords

Every blaze , including the ones from spawners has 10% chance to spawn as a Wildfire, and every wildfire spawns with 4 blazes that follow it, they have 40 hp

They have 3 attacks, if you are too far they'll shoot like normal blazes, using its shields to protect itselfs from proyectiles and explosions. If you're close enough they raise it's shields to di a spin attack, dealing 5 damage and losing its protection, if this attack isn't enough, they'll close its shields again, and start charging a powerful shockwave attack, dealing 15 damage and burning everything nearby them, when one dies the fire under them disappears, preventing the lose of loot.

Spider Fang

Dropped for the big fangs spider, used in the spider sword

The big fangs spider are variants of the normal spiders, but also a different entity, they can poison the player and trap it on web if is playing on normal or hard, they spawn in any dark place of the overworld like the normal spider, almost every time with a skeleton jokey ,are always hostile.

Basic Swords

The first 5 swords can be crafted with just 2 of its necessary material and a stick, like an iron sword, just replacing the iron with the corresponding item , you can see the recipes in the recipes book, all the swords has a durability of 850 deals 5 damages, has 2 abilities and can be repaired with other sword or the same item you used to craft them or other sword. The only exception is the poison sword, with its own recipe and repaired with iron

Upgraded Swords

You can upgrade any basic sword to a stronger one. First you need to craft 4 blocks of the material you used to craft the basic sword, 4 aquastone for the water sword for example, block are crafted with 9 items, and can be uncrafted, if you're gonna upgrade your poison sword you need 4 spider fangs instead

The ricepes of the blocks Don't appear on the recipe book, so here you can see the other 3 recipes.

One you have all, put the 4 blocks/fangs with the shape of a cross, put a diamond in the middle and this will give you and upgrade, hold the upgrade in you main hand, the sword you wanna upgrade in the main one, interact with any block using the sword and the sword will be upgraded, this keep the enchantments of the sword at level 1 and only works on survival.

Replace the aquastone blocks for the corresponding blocks or the 4 spider fangs to craft the other updates.

An example, if you upgrade a fire sword with sharpness 5 and mending, you get a lava sword with sharpness 1 and mending.

All the upgraded swords can be repaired with the same items that it's basic versions, all deals 8 damage and have 1500 durability. The upgrade sword have different abilities depending if you use the sword or interact with a block, you can think in this like sweet berries, you can "use" the berries and eat them or use the on a block and plant a berry bush.

If for some reason you lose any of the books juts put a book on a stone cutter, take the item that it gives you and use it, you'll recover the 3 guides.

About bugs

I'd getted multiple reports about bugs of the addon, but me and some friends tested it and there's nothing wrong so before report a bug please be sure you have the three experiments active and you and other have tried at least on 2 world the addon, because add-ons that uses experiments can be buggy sometimes, also find this addon in YouTube, there are like 3 or 4 reviews of this addon already apart of my own showcase video and in all the addon works fone, even Spyderrock made a review and all works, so I can say the addon works fine, I'm not sure why some people can use it, but I'll see if that can be fixed

Some reviews of this addon:




If after this you see the bug is persistent please tell me, you can find me on discord or Facebook as Axelpvz2030 to tell my directly what's wrong , if it's really something wrong I'll fix it as soon as I can, now about specific bugs:

  • The items don't work, appear: Custom items still are a beta feature, there some bugs that Mojang must fix, so sometimes the items could not works or appear, I'm not sure what defines if this happens or not, to me just with create another world the addon works, but can be different for you, this is a problem of add-ons in general, not my fault, I'll see if there's a solution but for know we have to wait until custom items become a normal feature
  • I can't build, break blocks: To keep the addon fully compatible with other add-ons I used entities to give effects to the player if it's holding a specific sword, this entities spawn every 2 s, gives effect to the player and then instantly despawn to avoid any lag problem, but they still have a really small hitbox, so if you are mining of placing block under you this can give you problems, if this happens just move your head a bit to the left or right and you'll be able to mine without any problems
  • Entities/blocks don't drop anything: like the first bug this also happens because the addon uses beta features, sometimes the game doesn't adds the items and the mobs don't have anything to drop, as soon the new custom tools and items become a regular feature I'll update the addon to prevent this

If you find other bug you can contact me for Facebook or YouTube, If there's something wrong with the addon I'll fix it, if not I'll help you anyways 

Final notes

  • All the swords and items of this addon can be holded with your off hand, the abilities that requires hold a sword works if you're holding the sword with your off hand too.
  • This addon don't modified player.json, so can be used with any other addon
  • The poison sword is useless against spiders and undead creatures, because they are naturally imune to poison.

  • Active the behavior and reasources packs

I enjoyed the many parts of the mob, just want to note I few issues that may as well be caused for other reasons other than the mod. The primal rock does not generate in the world, I see this could happen because this mod was made for previous versions of 1.17, and the newer versions of Minecraft could have caused this, but I am not sure. I have obtained the ore through commands only, as it also does not appear in the creative inventory.

And the second problem is that the the mob “wildfire” does not provide any blaze ingot or loot at all, this is weirdly omitted in creative mode, in which he does drop its expected loot. But apart from those two quirks, the mod has worked fine.

Never mind, the blaze do drop their expected loot, I have tried that on the same current world and at the last time I tried it did drop some loot even in survival.

Before report a bug or something be sure you have the three experiments active, also dirt find this addon in YouTube, there already some reviews like this one that shows at least the swords work perfectly fine:

Also be sure you're in the right version, you have the three experiments active and you have tried on 2 or more worlds
Log in to Reply
hey um can you change the windzard to the scrapped open mouth phantom?
you should probably know what I am talking about but if you don't then I could further explain it
Log in to Reply
The addon simply doesn’t work and I really want to try this, only the mobs work and I see yellow particles flowing time to time on random entities including the player. I tried re-installing, making new worlds and nothing happens. I believe there is something you can do to fix it. I’m on mobile btw

Do you have the Three experiments active? The addon actually works, There's even reviews of it on YouTube, check if you have the experiments active, if still don't work IDK how to help you
Log in to Reply
Yes I had experiments on bruh
Log in to Reply
Well, idk how to help you then, the addon works, even spyderrock made a review and it worked fine, so It should be something with your device, sorry
Log in to Reply
Try activating the three experiments, if still not works maybe is your device, the addon already has 2 reviews of small YouTubers, and it works fine, I'll see if in can do something, but as I said the addon works for other people, so check if you have the experiments active or is your device

If the addon don't works try with another world or copy of your world, experiments are really bugged on the newest versions, sometimes add-ons doesn't install completely in your world, if you can't find any items or you don't get drops from blocks or mobs try with another world or copy of your world, eventually it will work. This happens with add-ons in general, so I can fix it, also considered that mobs won't always drop the items you use to craft the swords, like either skulls this is random, and you have to kill the mob, if you find a bug that don't include drops from the mobs or items that don't appear leave a comment and I'll fix it as soon as I can.
