Mobs are one of the most interesting features of Minecraft. They are AI entities that spawn in all three realms of the game world. They all appear and interact with players differently. While some are passive or neutral towards players, others are hostile.
Most mobs in a Minecraft world are hostile towards players and will try to kill them with their attacks. Mobs like zombies are the most basic type of enemy mob and players can easily kill them. The Guardian, on the other hand, is widely considered to be the most powerful and powerful mob in the entire game.

Everything you need to know about the Warden in Minecraft
Where and how it spawns in the world
The Warden was introduced to the game with the latest 1.19 The Wild update released in June. Along with it came a new cave biome called Deep Dark. This is where the mob spawns.
However, the Guardian does not spawn when the world generates. Spawning depends on how the player behaves when traversing the Deep Dark biome.
When players are in the biome, they must be extremely quiet, as the new Sculk sensors have a special ability to detect any sonic vibrations. When players make any noise, the sculk sensor activates and triggers the sculk shrieker block, which emits a spooky scream.
The Warden only spawns when players make more than three mistakes and trigger Sculk Shriekers.
Warden’s Hunting Mechanism
Once the Guardian appears, it will begin hunting the player. Since it’s the first blind mob in the game, it will only smell and hear players’ movements to find them. Even as players sneak around and try to escape, the beast keeps getting closer.
The Guardian constantly inflicts a new status effect called Darkness on players. This drastically obscures the player’s field of vision, making it harder to see where they are going.
When players make any noises, the Warden’s pathfinding abilities improve and his walking speed increases.
Overseer’s deadly melee and ranged attacks
If the Warden finds a player and gets mad at them, all hell breaks loose. The beast lunges at the player and attempts to kill them with melee attacks.
In this case, the player has no choice but to run for his life. This is because the melee attacks are so powerful that they can kill anyone instantly, even if they’re wearing enchanted Netherite armor.
If players keep the beast at a distance but cannot fully escape, it will switch to ranged attack mode and begin shooting extremely powerful sonic waves. This not only damages and knocks back players, but also penetrates shields, walls, and even armor. Therefore, there is no way to avoid them.
