Best Tips & Tricks to Farm Wind Charges in Minecraft 1.21

Are you a huge fan of the new wind charge item added in Minecraft 1.21? Would you like to have plenty of them to do crazy things around your world? Well, in that case, this guide is exactly what you need. In this guide, we share some easy tips and tricks to help you farm the wind charge item more easily in Minecraft 1.21. So, without further ado, let’s begin!

Method 1: Make the Area Around Trial Spawner Smaller

What this implies is that you give the Breeze less space to move around. So, to make this simple, you can create a 9 x 9 room centered around the Breeze trial spawner, as this block will spawn mobs in a four-block spherical radius.

We suggest you also lower the ceiling significantly to stop the Breeze from constantly jumping. It can be right above the player’s head. This compact space will allow you to reach Breezes much more easily, therefore, killing it faster. While you are here, we recommend going through our guide to kill the Breeze mob in Minecraft.

Method 2: Bring Tamed Wolves to Help Kill the Breeze

Tamed wolves are your best friends when farming wind charges, as they’ll ensure you get both XP and the precious breeze rods. So our tip for farming wind charges in Minecraft 1.21 is to bring multiple tamed dogs inside the room around the trial spawner and wait for the Breeze to spawn.

You can leave them there and create an easy path to access the room. However, keep in mind that the wind burst attack can open all non-iron doors and trapdoors so having an iron door will prevent the Breeze from running out of the room.

You will also need a button or lever on you so the Breeze doesn’t just activate them constantly. Also, feed your dogs meat so they regenerate health after the fights. You could also equip them with wolf armor to make them super tanky.

You can also use iron golems for this purpose, but you have to hit the Breeze at least once. If the iron golem does all the damage, you will not get the breeze rods. This may seem easy but iron golems will kill the Breeze in three hits, so you will have to act fast.

Method 3: Funnel the Breeze in a Corner Using Water

Unlike the Blaze, you can use a water stream to push the Breeze into a certain spot. They even cooperate pretty well, so you won’t have many issues. Flood the room with water, as shown in the image below.

Then you can have the Breeze end up in a small area where you will be hitting it with a sword, just like in regular mob farms. Install a simple collection system below, and you’re good to go.

They will be able to attack you and push you away, but if you are quick, you can kill them in several well-timed hits. Also, place some blocks above the trial spawner so you collect its drops as well as Breeze’s.

Method 4: Make a Semi-Automatic Wind Charge Farm

You could probably make a fully automatic AFK wind charge farm, but today, we will be focusing on something simpler. Create a 9 x 9 room, as shown in Method 1.

Then, on one side, add a little chamber where you will be standing. Have blocks at the feet level and also slabs above them, so only the player’s face is visible. This will also prevent Breeze’s attacks from dealing damage to you.

Now, let your tamed wolves into the room, and you go into the tiny room on the side. When Breeze spawns, it will see and target you, hitting some wolves in the process. This will lead to your wolves killing the Breeze, which will make them drop breeze rods.

  • Player looking from their AFK spot while the tamed wolves attack the Breezes and farm wind charges in Minecraft 1.21

Get all the way against the blocks and the slabs, so Breeze can see you from the entire room. Add a collection system utilizing hopper minecarts below the room, and you will be farming wind charges every thirty-odd minutes.

The reason why this is a semi-automatic farm is that the tamed wolves will take damage over time, so you need to heal them every once in a while or replace them once they die. Alternatively, you can install some dispensers that will shower the wolves with health potions. You can have as many tamed wolves as you want. The more the doggos, the faster they’ll take care of the Breezes.

How Do You Get the Wind Charges?

Now, let’s explain the core mechanic behind the methods we listed above and how you can actually get the wind charge in case you don’t know. You can only get the wind charges by killing the Breeze. It will drop breeze rods which you can turn into wind charges in the crafting grid.

Though, that’s not all. The kill needs to count as the player kill, so either you or your tamed wolf must kill the Breeze.

However, it’s not as simple as it seems. In the case of the Breeze, wolves don’t naturally attack it like skeletons. So, they first need to get angry at the Breeze. According to our testing, the tamed wolf can get aggroed onto the Breeze in two scenarios:

  • If the Breeze hurts the player, or
  • If the Breeze hurts the tamed wolf or other tamed wolves.

So, if a Breeze gets aggroed towards the player, this won’t cause the tamed wolves to get angry and attack the mob. Also, no environmental damage will grant breeze rods, so fire or lava will not work. That’s why we used tamed wolves in the methods above. We hope this quick explanation clears any doubts that you might’ve had.

That said, those are all the recommendations we have for you. These tips will help you farm wind charges easily, so you can have lots of fun using them in your Minecraft 1.21 world. Which method will you use? Let us know in the comments below!
