Minecraft Legends: How to Get Skeletons, Zombies & Creepers

Here’s the step-by-step on how to unlock each of the mobs in Minecraft Legends:

  • Recruit Each Mob: After completing the Night Beacon quest, three Homestead locations will appear on your map: the Skeleton Homestead, Zombie Homestead, and Creeper Homestead. Visit each location to recruit the respective unit, but keep in mind that you won’t be able to build spawners for them yet.
  • Unlock Mob Spawners: To unlock the ability to build mob spawners, you’ll need to first complete one General Base (Spore, Hunt, or Bastion), which will trigger the Piglins’ counterattack. All three Mob Homesteads will come under attack. To free each homestead, open up your map, locate and travel to each homestead, defeat the Piglins, and destroy the Nether Portal at each location. Once you open the cages around the homesteads and command the mobs to aid you in the defense mission, you’ll be able to free the homesteads.
  • Place Mob Spawners: After freeing each homestead, you will be able to place the respective unit’s spawner to summon them when you want. Each mob spawner requires different resources to place:
    • Creepers: 25x Wood, 25x Stone, and 5x Coal
    • Zombies: 25x Wood, 25x Stone, and 5x Redstone
    • Skeletons: 25x Wood, 25x Stone, and 5x Diamond
  • Summon Units: After placing a Mob Spawner, interact with it to spawn the unit. Here are the costs for spawning each mob:
    • Creepers: 2x Coal, 2x Lapis, 1 Flame of Creation
    • Zombies: 2x Redstone, 2x Lapis, 1 Flame of Creation
    • Skeletons: 2x Redstone, 2x Lapis, 1 Flame of Creation
  • Skeleton Spawner in Minecraft Legends
  • Zombie Spawner in Minecraft Legends
  • Creeper Spawner in Minecraft Legends

Each of these mobs has its own unique strengths and weaknesses:

  • Zombies are strong, tanky frontline units that are resistant to debuffs and can disrupt enemies with their melee attacks.
  • Creepers, like in vanilla Minecraft, explode on contact with enemies or structures and are great for taking out hordes of enemies and destroying buildings during raids.
  • Skeletons are the “sniper units” of Minecraft Legends that can shoot arrows over walls and snipe enemies from halfway across the map. However, they are susceptible to melee attacks and need to be placed carefully.
