Sand Golems are hostile melee mobs that spawn naturally in the Overworld.

Spawning[ | ]

Sand Golems spawn naturally in sandy-type biomes in the Overworld.

They will only spawn during the day, 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[ | ]

Sand Golems 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.

Bestiary Entry[ | ]

A lost autonomous robotic creature from ancient times, Sand Golems are most often found in desert areas, wandering around aimlessly.

Long ago, civilised tribes living in the desert discovered how to create animated robotic guards for their sand villages. Powered by the heat of the sun, they require no input and have one aim: guard.

Approaching one is not recommended, as their guarding motives are unchanged after hundreds of years and they will see you as an immediate threat.
