Average rating: 0

Minecraft enthusiasts, brace yourselves for the unveiling of the first Pre-release of Minecraft 1.20.5! This update brings forth a medley of enhancements, tweaks, and bug fixes aimed at refining gameplay experiences across Trial Chambers, Ominous Trials, and more. Let’s delve into the exciting features awaiting players.

Experimental Features

Trial Chambers:

  • Chambers are now more consistently buried underground when discovered, enhancing the immersion of underground exploration.
  • ‘Chamber 6’ has been revamped with fresh variations and rebranded as ‘Assembly’ for a renewed challenge.
  • Expect a new trap dispenser style within the chambers to keep adventurers on their toes.
  • Several broken jigsaw connections in the corridors have been rectified for smoother progression.

Ominous Trials:

  • Mobs capable of wearing equipment will frequently spawn with enchanted weapons and armor, introducing more formidable encounters.
  • Enchantments such as Protection IV, Projectile Protection IV, Fire Protection IV, Sharpness I, Knockback I, Power I, and Punch I add depth to mob encounters.
  • Mobs will no longer drop their equipment upon defeat.
  • Players are now prime targets for Ominous Trial Spawners, heightening the challenge and engagement.
  • Projectiles now exhibit more precise targeting over chosen entities.


  • Cobweb spawn rates have been standardized upon entity death, yielding 2-3 cobwebs more consistently.
  • Players now experience enhanced mobility through cobwebs with a 50% speed reduction rather than the previous 25%.


  • The likelihood of spawning Silverfish within Infested areas has been adjusted to 10%, offering a more balanced challenge.
  • Silverfish now spawn at the entity’s center and disperse in the entity’s facing direction, adding a strategic layer to encounters.


  • Slimes within the Oozing region are now confined to a defined 5x5x5 area, preventing overcrowding and optimizing gameplay balance.

    • Revaulting: Unlock an Ominous Vault with an Ominous Trial Key.
    • Isn’t it Scute?: Obtain Armadillo Scutes from an Armadillo using a Brush.
