Dark Beasts are hostile melee mobs that spawn naturally in the Overworld during the Full Moon event.

Spawning[ | ]

Dark Beasts spawn naturally in all biomes in the Overworld.

They will only spawn during Full Moon events, and like most other mobs; their spawning can be prevented by placing torches or other lighting blocks nearby to raise the light level above 7.

Behavior[ | ]

Dark Beasts are melee mobs that will follow targets both on land and in water. They will initially attempt to avoid getting into the water where possible, but will go in if they find no other path to their target.

They are aggressive, and will attack nearby players within 16 blocks without provocation. If attacked by another entity, they will retaliate and continue targeting that entity.

Staying outside of their targeting range will prevent them from attacking or targeting entities.

Hunter Mob[ | ]

Dark Beasts are Hunter creatures that can be killed at any level. When killed, they will grant 11.2 Hunter xp.
