Minecraft Breeze Mob: Everything You Need to Know

The primary focus of Minecraft 1.21 is to deliver a fun combat experience to the players, so a brand-new structure called the trial chamber is the main centerpiece. It’s full of traps, loot, and cool battle opportunities. Not only that, but it also includes an epic hostile mob called the Breeze. This mob will provide a whole lot of challenges and fairly unique fights to players. With that said, learn everything about the Breeze mob in Minecraft right here.

What is the Breeze Mob in Minecraft?

Breeze is a unique hostile mob whose ability is to control the 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. These large and impressive structures are generated underground and include several procedurally generated rooms. To find trial chambers, you can follow our linked guide where we discuss four easy methods.

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 will be generated occasionally in some rooms of the structure. Upon getting close to one of them in survival mode, it will perform a quick animation, and soon after, one Breeze will spawn.

The only way to get rid of the Breeze is to defeat it. Mobs spawned by trial spawners are persistent, meaning they act like mobs that you use a name tag on. Because of this, the Breeze won’t 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 two Breeze mobs during one active phase. You’ll be fighting one of them at a time.

Once you do away with the 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 again.

Minecraft Breeze Properties

Now that you know where to find Breeze and how to spawn it, let’s take a look at the abilities and properties of this mob.

1. Breeze Health

The Breeze has 15 full hearts of health by default. It doesn’t take damage in water but simply gets pushed by it, like many 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 start looking 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 (around half a heart) depending on the difficulty; all in all, that’s pretty low damage.

However, when it collides with an entity or block, it will create an AOE (area of effect) called 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 if you manage to hit it at the right time. Apart from that, Breeze doesn’t have any special melee attacks in Minecraft.

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 an attack. And wen it lands, the Breeze starts moving around quickly and keeps shooting players 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.

Minecraft Breeze Drop: What Are the Rewards?

The Breeze has one unique drop that did not exist before the 1.21 update. To stay consistent with the Blaze, Breeze can drop breeze rods. By default, you’ll get 1-2 breeze rods per kill, but you can get up to 8 with the looting III enchantment.

These items are used in several crafting recipes for the wind charges, duplicating flow armor trim and the mace weapon. You can repair the mace with breeze rods by combining them in an anvil.

There we go, everyone. That’s pretty much everything you need to know about the new Breeze mob in Minecraft 1.21. It’s a rather playful hostile mob that provides a non-straightforward battle, which can be both amusing and frustrating for adventurers.

Is the Breeze hard to kill?

Not at all. 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.
