The new year of 2017 has arrived, and it's time for another fresh batch of the best Minecraft seeds. The latest 1.11.2 update is ready and available, which opens an opportunity for some truly rare and unexpected places for you to discover.
In this selection you will find all kinds of villages in huge numbers spawning next to each other. The blacksmiths have chests overflowing with insane stuff, such as diamonds, obsidian, golden apples, etc.
Also, make sure to visit a few of the woodland mansions and igloos on your way to the Minecraft riches. And if you were wondering about the best Minecraft seeds from last year, then here they are.
Here is a Minecraft seed with 9 villages and 10 desert temples! You will spawn right next to the very first of the villages. It stands between two biomes -- mesa and desert -- on a small patch of plains biome.
The rest of the villages can be located by following these coordinates:
-976 81 -851; -1267 79 -1319; 2896 75 2756; -3915 71 2837; -4348 69 2356; -2730 69 3429; -2908 71 3588; -4252 76 1813.
The desert temples are all packed with chests full of valuables. Find them all here:
-1669 74 -1238; -1814 76 -885; 2762 74 3209; 281 74 4346; 312 75 4730; -3975 67 3444; -3896 73 2826; -4296 73 2316; -4574 75 1650; -3006 75 3762.
Spawn in the area with one of the rarest sights in Minecraft that accomodates not two, but three villages in close proximity.
The first one is located at -250 70 755 with a witch hut standing in the middle of it all. The other two are situated not too far away on the desert plains at 292 64 858 and 284 64 1,177 respectively.
But the real treasure is hidden inside the desert temple at 132 65 810:
Here is the seed with another three villages, although this time they are not as close to each other as in the previous seed.
The coordinates to the villages are as follows: -990 68 197, 198 64 586, -747 71 871. The village at spawn has a blacksmith that keeps a few cool things:
Behind the first village you will see a desert temple with a few valuables as well:
Have you ever seen a woodland mansion standing so close to a village with a blacksmith? Well, in this rare Minecraft seed you get to see both of these structures spawning at 284 73 -880.
After you arrive at the spot, go ahead and check out that smithy's treausre chest:
The woodland mansion is just as full of valuables. For example, you will be able to locate a secret room with a chest at 245 66 -801 holding:
You can call it either a huge island or a small continent, but this is where you spawn. It accomodates almost all known biomes on a relatively small piece of land and a tiny desert village on one of its beaches.
The western part of the island is covered by mushrooms, while the eastern shore is a vast desert.
On the north you will find a savanna biome; and if you travel to the south, you will see a gorgeous mesa plateau.
Spawn on the ocean shore with a middle-sized savanna village at 148 64 -214. You should definitely check out the smithy's chest for:
Then, travel to 178 72 327 for another village, this time located in the desert. Right behind the village you will see a desert temple at 231 69 267 that keeps the following loot inside:
When was the last time you saw diamonds inside the blacksmith's chest? Can't remember? Exactly! It's extremely rare to find such a valuable loot in Minecraft these days.
After you spawn, head straight to coordinates 300 65 208. You'll find a small village there with a blacksmith. Check the treasure chest for:
You will spawn in the mesa biome with a tiny savanna village nearby at -300 80 -150. It has a blacksmith that keeps some nice loot inside, such as:
But the best part about this Minecraft seed is the open entrance into the mineshaft right below the village. Take your time -- there is a lot to explore.
Spawn in a very unusual mesa plateau that has small patches of savanna biome all over its territory. Unfortunately, there is no village nearby -- but you can find one at these coordinates: -961 69 -699.
It is also worth taking a look into the desert temple not too far away at -840 90 -743 for some fresh loot:
This village here spread its base over three biomes: plains, ice plains, and extreme hills. Quite a location!
More than that, if you travel to -295 63 373, you will spot a tiny igloo resting on the bank of the frozen river. Check inside for the hidden basement and get some fantastic items:
Triple jungle temple seed! Spawn very close to your first jungle temple at -167 71 154 that keeps 10 gold ingots inside the chests.
Then, go to -699 81 26 for your second jungle temple. This one has a much better loot that the first one:
The last one can be found at -811 80 -396, and this is a real jackpot. Take a look inside the chests and see for yourself:
You can never have enough of the Minecraft jungle seeds -- so here is another one.
You will spawn in the forest area that borders with a massive jungle biome. The first temple spawns at 869 79 -303. It is totally worth checking out for:
The second temple stands at 1079 77 -457, and it's full of gold ingots.
Spawn on the plains biome with a mansion not too far away at 382 64 -735. The mansion keeps a few interesting chests on the ground floor. The first one at 374 65 -674 contains:
The other one hidden behind the wall at 323 66 -698 has:
Also, check out the forest village just a few hundred blocks away at -437 82 -957. There is a smithy's shop and a chest full of iron.
Spawn on the edge of the desert biome with a temple standing right behind you at -374 64 154. Take a peek inside the chests:
Then, travel to these coordinates 1722 65 -707, where you will spot one of the biggest woodland mansions ever generated in Minecraft. There isn't much in terms of loot, but you can grab a diamond chestplate at 1701 74 -763.
Here is a triple igloo Minecraft seed! You will spawn on the border of ice plains and taiga biomes. From there on you can travel in all directions. The coordinates of the three igloos are as follows: 138 75 -353, 358 80 242, -650 80 750.
All these structures contain chests with golden apples and gold nuggets. So you will have a lot of gold in your posession after raiding them all.
The plains biome is your original starting point, but you really need to move westwards from there. At these coordinates -1179 68 373 you will find your first igloo hidden behind a small patch of forest trees. This igloo has a secret room underneath the floor, so go ahead and grab that golden apple.
The other igloo is located a bit to the south at -1199 69 752, and it's kind of half-buried under the layer of snow. This one also has a basement below with another cool chest holding:
Spawn next to a gorgeous flower forest biome, and then head towards the south-western direction. There, on the bank of a frozen river you will find an igloo at -1261 68 851 that also has an underground room.
Up in the northern direction you will spot a cute little village (-388 75 98). There is no blacksmith around, but an abandoned mineshaft below (-430 29 21) contains the following:
You will spawn about a thousand blocks away from a frozen river that hides an entire stronghold underneath the soil at 412 80 -1259. Several chests inside the stronghold contain:
The portal to the netherworld can be located at 380 26 -1245. The stronghold itself can lead you out to the massive abandoned mineshaft that is connected to a few other smaller mineshafts.
Another thing you can rarely see in Minecraft is desert temples spawning close to each other. You can maybe find two together, but this Minecraft seed has four of them (X/Z coordinates): -245 750, 375 820, -185 1075, 120 1175.
If you find them all and gather all their loot, this what you will end up with:
There are many ways to get gold in Minecraft. However, one of the best ways is to raid the ocean monuments. They usually contain huge blocks of gold inside, so finding one promises great fortunes.
Now, how about three ocean monuments spawning next to each other? Here they are all in one seed: 765 -1730, 1400 -1730, 2228 -1730.
