- Breeze is a Minecraft 1.21 mob that looks like a cold version of the Blaze mob and can only spawn inside trial chambers.
- Breeze has 15 hearts of health and can attack only using its ranged attack called the "wind charge", which knocks back entities and interacts with some blocks.
- Breeze so far has no loot drops.
Taking into account that the Minecraft 1.21 update’s main focus is a fun combat experience, a brand new special structure called the trial chamber is making its way into the game. It’s full of traps, loot, and battle opportunities. Not only that, but it also includes an epic new mob called the Breeze. This mob will provide a whole lot of challenges and super unique fights in the game. With that said, let’s not waste any more time and learn everything about the Breeze in Minecraft 1.21.
What is the Breeze Mob in Minecraft?
Coming with the Minecraft 1.21 update, Breeze is a unique hostile mob whose ability is to control wind. Its appearance resembles the Blaze mob but with cool colors instead of warm. It’s always surrounded by a constant tornado-like animation.
Furthermore, Breeze moves around hovering on the surface, but it also does so by leaping from one location to the other, sometimes even traveling quite long distances. But it cannot float up in the air like the Blaze can.
Where Can You Find Breeze in Minecraft?
You can encounter the Breeze only in the trial chambers in Minecraft 1.21. These large, impressive structures generate underground and include a number of procedurally generated rooms. To find Trial Chambers, you can follow our linked guide where we go over the three easy methods in detail.
How to Spawn and Despawn the Breeze
Once you are inside the trial chamber, you need to look for the trial spawner that has chiseled tuff blocks around it. This spawner variant will be generated occasionally in some rooms of the structure. Upon getting close to one of these spawners in survival mode, it will perform a quick animation, and soon after, two Breezes will spawn.
The only way to get rid of the Breeze is to defeat them. Mobs spawned by the trial spawner stay persistent, which means they act like mobs that you use a name tag on. Because of this, the Breeze will not despawn even if you go far away from it. However, when you kill one Breeze, a new one will spawn. If you’re playing in the single-player world, one trial spawner can spawn a total of six Breeze mobs at a time.
Each new one will spawn as soon as one of the old ones has been slayed. If you manage to kill two Breezes at the same time, two will spawn at once. So, you’ll have 2 Breezes to fight all along, except when you have killed five of them and only the final one is left.
Once you do away with all 6 spawned Breezes, no more will spawn since the spawner will go into the 30-minute-long cooldown phase. You will then receive some rewards for completing the challenge. After 30 minutes, you can come back to this very trial spawner and experience the battle once again.
Minecraft 1.21 Breeze: Properties
Now that you know where to find the Breeze and how to spawn it, let’s see all the abilities and properties you can expect from it.
1. Breeze Health
The Breeze by default has 15 full hearts of health. It doesn’t take damage in water but simply gets pushed by it, like several other mobs. However, fire and lava do damage it. Dispensed fire charge also deals damage to the Breeze.
Moreover, if you thought you could fight this mob at a distance, you’re wrong. Breezes are immune to shot arrows and tridents, as they just ricochet and deflect in random directions. Other projectiles like eggs and snowballs also don’t harm the Breeze.
Finally, Breeze is not an undead mob, so potions of harming do deal damage to it and potions of healing restore its health. But what about its attacks?
2. Attack Pattern
When the Breeze spawns, it will look for a target. Once it finds the player, it starts shooting them with a special ranged attack called “wind charge.” If this projectile hits an entity directly, it will deal a small amount of damage equal to only half a heart.
However, when it collides with an entity or a block, it will create an AOE (area of effect) called a “wind burst.“ This effect will knock back entities by several blocks and can even catapult them high in the air. This will cause you to take fall damage, so prepare your water buckets for well-timed clutches.
Also, it’s possible to reflect the Breeze’s wind charge projectile if you manage to hit it at the right time. Apart from that, Breeze doesn’t have any special melee attacks.
Moreover, the way this mob moves is by jumping. It will first play a little animation, indicating it’s compressing and is ready to propel itself through the air. It generally does this after it attacks. When it lands, the Breeze starts moving around quickly and keeps shooting the player with more wind charge projectiles.
However, the surprises don’t stop there. The wind burst effect has the ability to interact with certain blocks. Those include:
- Flipping Non-iron trapdoors and doors
- Opening and Closing Fence gates
- Activating Buttons
- Activating Levers
- Ringing Bells
- Extinguishing Lit candles
- Breaking Decorated Pots
- Breaking Chorus Flowers
- Breaking Pointed Dripstone
Because of this, the Breeze becomes more difficult to fight since rooms in the Trial Chambers are designed to include various dispenser traps. Usually, they consist of dispensers filled with arrows, fire charges, snowballs, water buckets, and more.
Moreover, on one or more blocks attached to the dispenser, there are buttons that the Breeze’s attack can activate, automatically triggering the dispenser. This can cause you to take additional damage or perhaps get stuck in flowing water.
Breeze Drops: What Are the Rewards?
At the time of writing, the Breeze has no loot drops. Considering the fact that the trial spawner itself gives you rewards after defeating all the mobs, maybe the Breeze won’t even have any drops at all. What do you think about that? Should the Breeze drop something? If so, what should it be? Leave your guesses in the comments below!
There we go, everyone. That’s pretty much all you need to know about the Breeze in Minecraft. As we initially described, it’s a rather playful hostile mob that provides a non-straightforward battle, which can be both amusing and frustrating for adventurers. That said, what is your favorite thing about the Breeze? Let us know in the comments section!
So far not really. Breeze does jump around quite a bit, which will force you to chase it, but it’s not hard to defeat this mob if you go in with a plan.
