The 42 best Minecraft seeds for 1.21 July 2024 (1)

Ancient Trial Stronghold

Ancient City, Trial Chamber, Stronghold seed:1669984371247603308
Version: 1.21
Important Coordinates:

  • Ancient City: 8,920, -51, 6,648
  • Trial Chamber: 8,951, 6,631
  • Stronghold: 8,676, 6,756

This amazing 1.21 seed puts the three most rare and valuable overworld structures together in one place: an Ancient City, a Trial Chamber, and even a Stronghold. As you can see in the image above, the Ancient City and Trial Chamber are neighbors. What you can’t see is the Stronghold just 300 blocks behind you to the north west. Once you’ve kitted yourself out in your best armor and are ready to face the Ender Dragon, you can kill two birds with one stone – or explore three structures in one adventure.

Trial Chamber seed

Trial Chamber seed:393235010621814182
Version: 1.21
Important coordinates:

  • Village: 176, 64
  • Trial Chamber:16, 160

For your first days in the Minecraft 1.21 update, this seed has a great spawn location, with a nearby village and trial chamber. There’s almost no better way in Minecraft 1.21 to loot valuable materials early on, but what’s better is you can access this underground chamber with next to no tools. Head to the village at x = 176, z = 64 to stock up on wood and other materials safely before heading to the massive cave entrance to the southwest. Use the waterfalls here to safely descend into the cave, and you can see a brick wall at the bottom – this is the Trial Chamber. Use a pickaxe to break through the wall and take on the new challenge.

Of course, since you are entering a cave (and dangerous trial chamber) we would recommend taking some tools and weapons with you, but there’s so much loot to be had inside the Trial Chamber walls that you won’t need much. Just be on the lookout for mob spawners and that new Minecraft Breeze.

Armor trims seed

Armor trims seed: -3700836276160199646
Important coordinates:

  • Outpost: -192, 80
  • Ruined portal: -328, 120
  • Village: -496, 176
  • Nether fortress: 27, 27
  • Bastion treasure room: 288, -160

Minecraft armor trims arrived with the Minecraft 1.20 update, and allow you to flex a style armor fit as you battle monsters and mine precious ores. Getting these armor trims though, or the smithing templates used to forge your armor, is no easy task – most are looted from well-protected chests in dangerous locations.

If you don’t want to stray to far from your base, or even spawn, for some of the most hard-to-find smithing templates, then this seed makes things easy, and has a lot more to offer, too. Just a short walk to the southwest, you find an Outpost on an island – the significance of the island being that it makes this outpost much safe to be near, as pillagers struggle to cross water. Here, you can pick up two Sentry smithing templates, and rescue some Minecraft allays.

Visible from here is a completable ruined Nether portal – it just needs one block and that can be found in the nearby chest. And, from here, you can see a village. This is almost everything you need to get set up for your first night, and ready for a trip to the Nether, where you can find a Nether Fortress just 20 blocks to your east. Here, you can find the Rib smithing template. Finally, if you needed any more convincing, there’s a Bastion treasure room to the north east, where you can find the Snout and Netherite Upgrade smithing templates. What a seed.

Thanks to shady_bookworm on reddit for finding this one.

Beautiful broken cove seed

Broken cove seed: 11297487
Important coordinates:

  • Cove:83, 23
  • Ruined portal:68, 138
  • Village:224, 576

In perhaps the most beautiful landscape we’ve seen in Minecraft in our ten-plus years of playing, this majestic broken cove features floating pieces of land, multiple waterfalls, and even a ruined portal floating in the center of the water below. This location gives us so many ideas for stunning builds we don’t know where to start – but the first step is definitely loading our next new world here. What makes this even better is that you don’t have to go far to find it, as this cove is situation right at spawn, and we have sevenhundredmiles on reddit to thank for finding this treasure.

Swamp village seed

Swamp village seed: -2295595817529477063
Important coordinates:

  • Swamp village: 704, 672

This is a really good one. In case you’re unaware, swamp and jungle villages don’t spawn naturally in Minecraft, but they do have their own unique villager trades. This might seem unfair, but these villagers can be forced to spawn as long as they are ‘born’ in these biomes, for example via a villager farm. This usually means you either have to be lucky enough to find your ‘parent’ villagers close to one of these biomes, or transport them via Nether portal, boat, minecart, or a combination of all three. Boring.

In this rare seed, however, a normal taiga village just happens to generate at the edge of the biome, overlapping with a swamp. Not only does this make it easy to create a villager farm in the swamp, but it also means swamp villagers, with their own unique look, may even spawn naturally, making this a very handy seed. Thank to Nt0splat on reddit for finding it.

Skull island seed

Skull island seed: 1040934860
Important coordinates:

  • Village:-160, -144

This incredibly cool find was discovered by DPS3 on reddit, and features a large island that looks like a skull – even with a cute little opening for a nose. What makes this even better is that the skull island houses a gorgeous Minecraft lush cave, which looks beautiful and is home to some rare loot.

Still not enough to sell it to you? Well, how about the fact that you spawn directly on top of this cool seed – into a massive desert village. Of, and there’s a mineshaft below ground. You can get pretty much everything you need for an easy start to your survival adventure right here on skull island.

Easy Nether seed

Nether seed –4517475607999363428
Important coordinates:

  • Fortress:13, 27
  • Bastion:25, -119

OK, don’t take us too seriously when we say “easy”, nothing in the Nether is ever easy, but this seed certainly sets you up for success. When launching into this world, found by PainterAccording on reddit, you spawn on a small island, which itself is home to some vital resources like coal, iron, and gravel. Place a Nether Portal on this island, and you’ll find yourself right inside (or close to) a Nether Fortress. That’s not all, as there’s also a Bastion Remnant located just 100 blocks to the North. Just make sure you’re kitted out with gold, armor, and other essentials before you try and venture into the underworld.

Shipwreck survival seed

Shipwreck seed:-8065848147699287859
Important coordinates:

  • Spawn:64, -544

While finding shipwrecks is one of the best ways of gathering valuable resources early on, there’s still a significant challenge involved in being stranded on a shipwreck in completely open ocean – and that’s exactly what this seed offers. Thanks to Jmims1983 on reddit for finding this challenging survival Minecraft seed on 1.20, in which you really do spawn on a shipwreck mast, with no land in sight.

Carefully go underwater to loot the shipwreck’s chests for all you can get – which does, thankfully, include some iron – grab some of its wood to make a boat, and see how far you can make it.

Trail Ruins at spawn

Spawn Trail Ruins Seed:-78281593317120339
Important coordinates:

  • Trail Ruins:-152, 72
  • Village:-272, 272

Trail Ruins are all that is left of ancient Minecraft civilizations and villages from a time long since forgotten. Added in the 1.20 Trails and Tales update, these oft-buried structures are home to plenty of valuable loot and even Minecraft archaeology, given you the chance to scrape away at suspicious blocks to reveal the secrets hidden within. Perhaps the most fun part is just excavating the area itself though, and finding out just how large the village was – perhaps you could even take on the task of reforming it?

This Trail Ruin seed is perfect for any budding archaeologists, as the ruins seen above are just a few blocks from spawn, and the top-most bright terracotta blocks can be seen with no digging required. What’s even better, though, is the nearby village at x = -272, z = 272, giving you somewhere to call home while you work, and to safely store all the artifacts you uncover. There’s even a Mineshaft underground here too, if you’re brave enough to face the dangers in exchange for even more valuable loot.

Savanna village seed

Savanna village seed:-2078000429
Important coordinates:

  • Village:80, 50

If the Savanna is your favorite biome, then look no further than this great village seed, which spawns you right next to a large savanna village, floating in a river valley between grand savanna cliffs. This is a great survival seed, not just because of the materials you can gather in the village, but also thanks to the surrounding cave entrances, making it easy to gather resources and make it safely back home to your villager friends.

Minecraft seed for building

Minecraft seed for building:-3899835130120818196
Important coordinates:

  • Village:-144, -144

For a seed that offers building locations and survivability right at spawn, we’ve got you covered. This perfect seed spawns you right near a plains village, where you can pick up plenty of materials to get you started. However, the real draw of this seed in the large surrounding plains, which offer perfect plateaus for building on. This plains biome is surrounded by tiny cherry grove, forest, and even jungle biomes, as well, so you can gather most of the wood types without straying too far from your home base.

Eight Ancient Cities seed

Eight Ancient Cities seed:-3227758055243832981
Important coordinates:

  • 1: x = -2,520, y = -616
  • 2:x = -1,848, y = -600
  • 3:x = -2,088, y = -184
  • 4:x = -2,264, y = 104
  • 5:x = -2,440, y = 40
  • 6:x = -1,864, y = 408
  • 7:x = -2,296, y = -488
  • 8:x = -2,440, y = 424

No, we’re not joking. We were actually hunting for a Trail Ruin seed when we came across this incredible find. We’re not sure why you’d want to put yourself through the incredible pain of looting even one Ancient City (we might have been killed by The Warden one too many times), but this is the Minecraft community – there’s bound to be someone who wants to visit eight adjacent cities.

We found this seed using Chunk Base, and, as you can see from the image above, there are eight Ancient Cities all within a thousand-block square. Given how large Ancient Cities themselves are, trust us when we say there’s not much distance between them. In fact, we went and had a look in spectator mode, and that block of four in the bottom left are all practically on top of each other. Travelling between those far north cities at least gives you a bit of breathing space from The Wardens.

If this seems like a bit too much for you, there is a seed further down with just two combined Ancient Cities, but there was no way we weren’t adding this to the list of the best Minecraft seeds right now.

Mega Ancient City

Mega Ancient City seed: 111111111111111111 (that’s 18 ones!)
Important coordinates:

  • Village: 0, -464
  • Mineshaft: -203, -26, -653
  • First Ancient City: -210, -52, -700

We’re calling this the ‘Mega Ancient City’, but do let it be known that there is some space between some of them, so you might think it a little misleading. That said, there’s still no denying that 26 Ancient Cities within 5,000 blocks is something spectacular, especially considering how bit each individual structure is. For context, it only takes about three -to-four minutes to walk 1,000 blocks, so this gives you a pretty incredible underground adventure in an afternoon of gaming and looting.

What makes this seed, found by on reddit, even better is that these underground structures start quite close to spawn, and there’s a picturesque snowy village on your way to the first. Stop here, make yourself at home, and prepare for your adventure, then head underground towards -210, -700 to start your ancient city exploration. Head west, and the majority of the cities are on a straight line.

Speedrun seed

Speedrun seed:7499203634667178692
Important coordinates:

  • Stronghold:38, -485

If you want to test your mettle as a speedrunner, this is the random seed used by current record holder Zylenox, who we’ve also listed as one of our favorite Minecraft YouTubers for their speedrun record. It might not appear the best with those Stronghold coords above, but we’d highly recommend taking a look at Zylenoz’s speedrun raw recording to see how it’s done by the very best, and give it a practice in the seed itself. Warning, it is not easy.

Ancient City Cherry Grove seed

Ancient City Cherry Grove seed:2419912010728942704
Important coordinates:

  • Ancient cities: 94 , -36, 265
  • Cherry Grove: 65, -31

This is a pretty incredible find if we may say so ourselves. Finding one Minecraft Ancient Cityin survival mode is hard enough, finding two right next door to one another is something else. And these two are almost directly below spawn? And a massive cherry grove biome? Yes and yes.

When you’re dropped at spawn at x = 16, z = -16, you are immediately greeted by the sight of a Cherry Grove biome to your south and east, surrounding some snowy slopes. Head underground to the southeast of spawn to find a gigantic Ancient City at x = 96, z = 73. Follow this underground structure directly South until you reach a lava fall to find the start of another Ancient City. Just watch out for those Wardens. The coordinates we’ve listed above drop you right in between the two cities.

Scenic Minecraft seed for 1.20

Pretty icy 1.20 seed: 7050622155736149866
Important coordinates:

  • Vantage point: 93, 2,655
  • Cherry Grove: -694, 2,846

This seed was originally found by RedditorHanazeri in 1.19, and the magnificent icy landscape in the image above still stands in the 1.20 update. What makes this even better after Tales and Trails though is the addition of a Cherry Grove biome right next to one of the icy mountains. The vantage point above can be found at coordinates x=93, z=2,655, while the snowy mountain and cherry blossom combo can be found a *cough* short *cough* walk along the x-axis to x=-694, z=2,846.

There’s no prettier color combo than pink and white, right? So grab a few saplings and pink petals from the Cherry Grove, head back to the gorgeous building plot above, and turn that circular meadow into a snowy pink wonderland.

Cherry Grove seed

Perfect Cherry Blossom ring seed:1691256543523180978
Important coordinates:

  • Village: 11,980, 1,400

If you love the seed above but want something a bit less… chilly, then this perfect pink paradise might just the place to build your next home – and it might be one of the most incredible finds we’ve ever seen in Minecraft. We have redditor Shoowa to thank for this one, which on the surface is a stunning ring of cherry blossoms, surrounding a pretty lake, and itself surrounded by a circular river. Just that alone is enough to make this an incredible find – just image a cute cherry blossom village with that lake as the focal point – but there’s even more to this location that you first see, with a village nearby, some phenomenal caves and even a mineshaft underneath the mountain range.

Minecraft basem*nt igloo at spawn seed

Igloo spawn seed:8014621782944328921
Important coordinates:

  • Igloo:168, -136
  • Shipwreck:5, 126

If you’re someone who worries about having somewhere to rest your head on your first Minecraft night – and you like to find rare structures – then look no further than this Minecraft seed with an igloo at spawn. And when we say spawn, we mean spawn – simply turn around and this igloo, complete with basem*nt, is all of two blocks in front of you.

With a bed, a chest, some food, and even a villager to trade with (once you’ve got Emeralds, of course), you’re off to a good start with this seed before you’ve really even started. From here, we recommend heading south west, either underground or above ground, but you’ll find a mineshaft ripe for looting if you travel underground. Then, at x = 5, z = 126, there’s a Shipwreck just under the water’s surface, full of other valuable gear, including a treasure map and armor smithing templates.

1.20 Trails and Tales seed

Cherry Grove and archeology seed: -4701114812458603382
Important coordinates:

  • Cherry Grove:1,500, -170
  • Desert Temple:1,688, 1,112
  • Desert Temple 2:2,071, 1,112

We’re going to keep digging for the very best seed for the Minecraft Trails and Tales 1.20 update, but this is by far the best we’ve seen to date. Not too far from spawn in an easterly direction, you’ll find a large desert biome (x=1,400, z=700), which is home to two desert temples for archeology, plus, there’s a desert village nearby for taming your very own camel. That’s not all, as there is a relatively large Cherry Grove biome to the north of the desert, where you can build a pretty Minecraft house, or just gather some Sakura saplings.

Multiple Desert Temple seed

Double desert temple seed: 6379870233718797262
Important coordinates:

  • Desert Temple 1:168, 232
  • Desert Temple 2:-392, 152
  • Desert Temple 3:-872, 600
  • Desert Temple 4:-1,304, -168
  • Village 1:-272, 288
  • Village 2:-816, 640

This seed is the perfect location for a dig site with Minecraft archeology.There are four desert temples all fairly close to spawn, with one about a minute’s walk southeast from spawn, and another the same distance southwest. If you’re worried about spawning in a desert with no wood, there’s an entire jungle of the stuff right behind the eastern temple. Meanwhile, the western temple, as you can see in the image above, has a village behind it, so you’ll be able to tame a camel or two, as well.

Double Ancient city seed

Double Ancient city seed: -4289043014354930070
Important coordinates:

Ancient Cities:2,103, -5,856

If you’re struggling to find a Ancient City in survival mode, we’re not surprised – they’re difficult to find. You could use our guide to help you locate one in your adventures, or you could use this seed, found by Redditpeoplebelike and shared on Reddit, and head to the coordinates x=2,103, z=-5,856. It’s a fair hike, but it’s worth it – once you get there, you’ll find not one but two ancient cities smushed together, below an exposed, hanging mineshaft system. That’s a lot of rare loot… provided you can evade the terrifying Minecraft Warden within.

Ancient city near spawn

Ancient City near spawn seed: -3675652194237789176
Important coordinates:

  • Cave entrance:65, 70
  • Ancient City: 168, 24

If the previous ancient city seed requires a little more walking than you’re willing to do, this one can be found right beneath your feetthanks to Redditor u/Few_Trainer_180. Starting from the spawn point, walk a bit further east (x=65, z=70) to find the entrance to an enormous cave system. Descend towards the east, then take the tunnel underneath the lava stream towards the west. There’s an opening in the ground (x=120, y=-25, z=129) through which you can see the Ancient City. While these underground ruins should keep you busy for a while, this Ancient City seed features more than a dozen other Ancient Cities relatively close to the spawn point. For example, the second-easiest one is underneath a cave opening on the snowy mountains in the north (x=90, y=150, z=-280).

The 42 best Minecraft seeds for 1.21 July 2024 (23)

Desert village seed

  • Village 2:-256, 336
  • Village 3:-336, -480
  • Village 4:0, -320
  • Desert Temple 1:88, 152

Easy Diamonds seed

Diamonds seed: 3057310577815726585
Important coordinates:

  • Diamond vein:90, -31, -250

Digging for diamonds can be a frustrating task, but not if you know the exact location of a 21-piece diamond vein, as spotted by Redditor u/PurelyPog. Although it’s technically a diamond vein of 18 blocks plus a second one of three blocks, either way you look at it; it’s massive. To find it, start by walking towards the northeast, where you’ll find a Plains village. Stand on block x=90, z=-250, then dig straight down until you enter a cave at y=-24. Watch out for the monsters! Once you get rid of them, dig a bit further down (y=-31) to find the 18-piece diamond vein. The second one is a few blocks lower. As a bonus, you’ll find plenty of other ore types in this cave area.

To make this find even better, get to a village first and trade your way to a pickaxe imbued with a Fortune enchantment to get up to four times as many diamonds from your haul.

Infinite Mineshaft seed

Infinite mineshaft seed:107038380838084
Important coordinates:

Mineshaft intersection:y = 0, z = 8

This one is utterly overwhelming. Create a new world in version 1.20 and head underground at spawn, or anywhere on z-axis 8.0 (well, equip yourself with some essential tools and armor first), and you’ll find one long Mineshaft that spawns the world’s entire x-axis. Right near spawn, it even opens into a lush cave, lighting the path aheadwith glow berries. Think of all those glorious Mineshaft chests filled with precious loot… Thanks to u/Cynix747 for sharing this incredible find on Reddit. Our only advice: try not to get lost.

Beautiful Minecraft seed

Beautiful Minecraft snow seed:5488656216511509290
Important coordinates:

  • Frozen lake:-170, -204
  • Pillager Outpost:-192, 117

We might be nearing the end of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, but even if you’re not looking for aMinecraft Christmas guide right now, this winter wonderland seed is still beautiful for any time of year, surrounding you with ice and snow as far as the eye can see. Load into a 1.19 world or newer, head up the mountain right next to you on spawn, and you can descend into a dripstone cave or build a festive town or icy-cool castle on the gorgeous frozen lake above. Plenty of rare structures near spawn, including a Pillager Outpost at -192, 117, also help you get essential loot in the early days.

Woodland Mansion seed

Woodland Mansion seed: 844424960210770
Important coordinates:

  • Woodland Mansion:24, 8

Why search for a Woodland Mansion if you can spawn on top of one? This Minecraft Woodland Mansion seed, found by Redditor u/Demonitized_Money, does exactly that. Moreover, the Mansion is situated right in the middle of a river, with a large nearby cave area and easy access to the Ocean. Just be careful when climbing down from the rooftop; the west side of the building offers the safest way to descend.

Witch Hut Seed

Witch hut seed: -9215772017318341931
Important coordinates:

  • Woodland Mansion:504, 456
  • Witch Hut 1:360, 376
  • Witch Hut 2:376, 520
  • Witch Hut 3:536, 536
  • Witch Hut 4:536, 344

This amazing Minecraft witch hut seed from Redditor u/Wasthereonce spawns not one, not two, not even three, but four nearby witch huts. As a nice bonus, they surround a massive Woodland Mansion. All four huts are close to the Mansion (x=500, z=420), so it’s best to look for this hard-to-miss landmark first, just one-minute walk south of the original spawn point. Once there, circle the swampland around the giant building to find the witch huts (north, south, and west of the Mansion).

Mooshroombiome seed

Mushroom fields seed: 859337968100847433
Important coordinates:

  • Mushroom field:128, 66

After spawning on a sandy shore, turn around and venture out to sea to discover a Mooshroom island paradise populated byseveral adorable Mooshrooms. Watch your step as the rare mushroom fields occasionally open up to huge ravines, but they do make the perfect place to build a stunning ravine base – especially since the Mooshroom environment keeps you safe from hostile mobs.

Amazing rare island Seed

Best island seed: -3420545464665791887
Important coordinates:

  • Woodland Mansion:120, 56
  • Village:128, 176

This Minecraft island seed, an incredible find by Redditor u/stofix_, provides one of the most challenging and unique places to start your game. Yup, it’s only a small island… But it houses a pretty large Taiga village and a Woodland Mansion. Thanks to the Taiga and Dark Forest biomes, you won’t suffer from a shortage of trees.

Woodland Mansion and lush cave seed

Woodland mansion and lush cave seed: 2377611421072266823
Important coordinates:

  • Woodland Mansion:487, 492
  • Lush Cave:400, 516

Instead of heading out to sea when you spawn into this seed, sail along the river toward the coordinatesx=487, z=492, and you’ll come across a woodland mansion on theriverbank.

On the opposite bank, there’s a cave nestled in the hill – inside, it opens up into a vast lush cave with a dripstone cave chamber on the side. There are plenty more lush caves in the vicinity to explore, but they require some digging to find.

Lush Cave seed

Lush cave and mineshaft seed: -1898624505743265221
Important coordinates:

  • Lush Cave:2,890, 47, 2,200

While this breathtaking cave found byu/SushyDie on Redditis a fair old trek from the initial spawn location at x=2,890, y=47, and z=2,200, it’smore than worth the journey – just make sure you’re in version 1.18 or later.

Traveling into the massive cave via the top of a disused mine shaft attached to the roof by chains, the vast expanse of the cave opens up below youand is the perfect location for an underground metropolis. Not to mention all that precious loot you can find in the Mineshafts.

Jungle seed

Jungle seed: 5247619261862256596
Important coordinates:

  • Jungle Temple:150, 150

This Minecraft Jungle seed drops you right in the middle of a lush green bamboo paradise. Besides Bamboo Jungle, you’ll find a large patch of dense Jungle to the north (across the river) and a seemingly endless Sparse Jungle to the east. If you’re looking for a Jungle Temple, you’ll find that a bit further north as well (x=-150, z=-150). However, the seed’s biggest selling point is its beauty; the forest is spread out over little islands and gorgeous hills, including a particularly epic rock formation just northeast of the spawn point. If this still isn’t enough greenery for you, you might want to cross the Plains and Savannah to the west. Once you’ve crossed the river, you’ll find another huge Jungle biome waiting to be explored (x=-1,000, z=0).

Cool Minecraft village seed

Village monolith seed: -6537256334104833826
Important coordinates:

  • Village:-416, 128

You can find this peculiar village to the west of the island where you spawn, at coordinates x=-416, z=128. These intrepid villagers have made a home all the way around a tall, jagged cliff jutting out of the sea, with harbors on every side, buildings perched on top, and farmland carved into the cliffside. While it looks cool, it’ll take a while to scale this huge vertical island.

Seed with all biomes near spawn

All biomes seed: 4405134068028
Important coordinates:

  • Spawn, Dark Forest:192, 112
  • Taiga:150, 150
  • Mushroom Fields:0312, -112
  • Swamp:-240, -662
  • Desert:950, -777
  • Badlands:819, -891
  • Cherry Grove:752, 81
  • Snowy Plains:-731, 971

Don’t want to be stuck in the same biome for too long, do we? This legendary Minecraft seed, originally posted by Redditor u/Jereaux, contains every biome within 1,000 meters of the original spawn point (yes, every single one). Let’s sum up: there are Forests, Beaches, and Plains all around, Oceans to the northeast and west (all temperatures), Snowy Mountains and all types of Taiga to the west, a Mushroom Island and Swamp to the northwest, Savanna, Desert, and Badlands to the north and east, and Jungle and Stony Shore to the southeast.

Multiple biomes seed

Multiple biomes seed: 333148945457819
Important coordiantes:

  • Mushroom Fields:-208, 356
  • Cherry Grove:492, 1061
  • Badlands:1,350, 1,700
  • Savanna:715, 1,050
  • Flower Forest:-300, 1024

This multiple biome seed doesn’t give you every biome near spawn but offers a great variation of biomes in a relatively small area. As shown on Reddit, you’ll find a small patch of Mesa (x=1,350, z=1,700) to the southeast, surrounded by Plains, Savanna, Forests, Jungle, and Stony Peaks. Even better; both Savanna and Plains Villages surround this location. It’s a perfect place if you’re looking for a varied landscape.

Shattered Savanna seed

Windswept Savannah seed: 6284900741809347198
Important coordinates:

  • Village 1: -1,056, -256
  • Village 2:-1,232, -432

Looking for ragged peaks with tiny floating islands? This Shattered Savanna seed, also known as Windswept Savanna, provides just that and more, with no less than four nearby Shattered Savanna locations to choose from. Directly after spawning, you’ll see the first one to the south, situated in the water (x=-500, z=210). The second one is to the west (x=-1060, z=-175), right next to two villages. The third one is in the north, next to a Swamp (x=-360, z=-900), and the fourth Shattered Savanna is northeast (x=-500, z=250). The one in the north (with the villages) is arguably the most unique of the four.

Mesa Biome seed

Badlands seed: -2757104535283963016
Important coordinates:

  • Shipwreck 1:40, 8
  • Shipwreck 2:104, -232

Looking for a large chunk of Badlands to explore? The Badlands, also known as the Mesa biome, are particularly rare as a spawn location. Luckily, this Mesa Biome seed drops you right at the border of the layered red rocks. Head northwest to find a seemingly endless Mesa biome with canyon-like rock formations, barren plateaus, forest areas, high mountains, large cave systems, tiny islands, and Ancient Cities.

OP loot seed

Overpowered seed: 2059666523504992
Important coordinates:

  • Village 1:-176, 80
  • Village 2:128, 32
  • Village 3:144, -208

Found by YouTube channel moment’s Lab of Minecraft, this overpowered Minecraft seed hands you three nearby villages (and their valuable loot) on a silver platter. Village one is in the east (x=70, z=10), village two is in the southwest (x=-140, z=65), and village three is in the northeast (x=140, z=-200). They’re close to trees, cave systems, water, and various other biomes so that you won’t suffer any shortages.

Furthermore, there’s a ton of buried treasure on the beach to the north and a Ruined Portal to the southeast (x=150, z=210). The Nether Portal spawns you right inside a Nether Fortress, making it easy to grab even more loot.

Minecraft title screen seeds

Title screen seed:-1696067516
Important coordinates:

Minecraft title screen:3,820, 553

Finding title screen panorama seeds has become a new Minecraft tradition. YouTube channel MinecraftAtHome has found the original title screen using seed 2151901553968352745 (coordinates x=61, z=-68, in Minecraft beta 1.7), and they also discovered the version 1.19 title screen using seed -1696067516. If you try the latter, you’ll find yourself in an all too familiar Swamp biome at coordinates x=3820, z=553.

Snowy speedrun seed

Seed:-4496590507308278848
Important coordinates:

  • Igloo:648, 1,544
  • Stronghold:548, 1,540
  • Ancient City:548, 1,736

If you’re looking for a chilly seed to speedrun through, then look no further than this Minecraft Christmas speedrun seed. Perfect for jumping into and completing while you’re off for the holidays, or even just if you’re not a fan of the summer, this seed has a basem*nt igloo not too far from spawn, directly over not only an Ancient City, but also a Stronghold, meaning you can check out three of the rarest Minecraft structures in quick succession, and complete the game.

Of course, you also need a Nether Fortress to do this, but as luck would have it, head into the Nether from the coordinates above, and you are only a short walk from the nearest Nether Fortress, at x = 126, z = 274. To get back to your stronghold location, we recommend building your way to the fortress, with a path that you can follow back to your portal.

Herobrine seed

Herobrine seed: 478868574082066804
Version:Alpha 1.0.16_02
Important coordinates:

  • Herebrine Forest:5, -298

Here’s one for the Minecraft folklore experts: the infamous Herobrine seed, a.k.a. where Minecraft-ghost Herobrine was supposedly sighted. Discovered by MinecraftAtHome on YouTube, you can now visit the creepy forest yourself (x=5.16, z=-298.53) as long as you use Minecraft’s Java Alpha 1.0.16_02 version. Of course, the myth of Herobrine is merely a decade-old copypasta, so we shouldn’t expect to find an actual ghost here… Right? Wait… Who’s that over there?

What is a Minecraft seed?

If you’re new to Minecraft or just new to specific seeds, you might be wondering what we’re even talking about. As we briefly touched upon in the intro, Minecraft worlds are procedurally generated – each one is completely random across millions of blocks, thousands of diamonds, and hundreds of structures. However, when a new world is generated, it is given its own unique number – a seed. This number can then be entered into the game creation screen to recreate the exact same world generation again and again, so you and your friends alike can play the same world.
