The Blocklings mod adds a series of tamable mobs in Minecraft that may start out small but ultimately grow very large over time. Their main goal is protecting you in your travels as well as making absolutely adorable companions. They have a leveling system and can level up to 10 ranks as well as have the ability to be upgraded incrementally as you see fit.
You can find these Blocklings anywhere around your world so long as you are in any forest or plains type biomes. They can all be tamed using with flowers so they are certainly easy to get their attention and follow you. Flowers are also their food source and are used to heal them so be sure to keep plenty of them in your inventory. Once a Blockling is tamed, they will follow you around and attack your enemies when posing a threat. Be aware that these early level Blocklings aren’t very strong or powerful yet so it might be wise to keep them out of too much harm until you can level them up some more. You can also have them sit down in place if you’d rather keep them out of harm’s way until they are ready for battle.
They will level up over time with each battle they are in and they will max out their size at level ten but they will still continue leveling beyond that. You can also craft upgrades to give your Blockling special abilities and defenses. The upgrades will improve healing of the blockling, damage they can deal, their speed and their defense. The upgrades are easy to craft and come in six different tiers: wood, stone, gold, iron, obsidian, and diamond. All you need to do is surround a flower with those materials to craft the upgrade piece. And then you can give them to your Blockling but they must be given in order since they are tiered upgrades.
Blocklings will have a menu system when you right click on them. There is a ton of useful information about your new buddy that can help you understand what level they are currently at as well as their XP and health. They also have an inventory system that grows with them so you can store extra items as they follow you around. This is a fantastic feature to essentially double to storage you can take along with you and can be best utilized for any extra items you don’t want cluttering up your own inventory. You can even give your blockling weapons to fight with. Within the menu system you will see different tabs for your blockling. All you need to do is place whatever weapon you want them to hold in the weapon slot and they will now be able to fight much more efficiently with and for you. What makes this menu so handy is that you can also give them additional tools to help you with mining, woodcutting, and farming! All you need to do is give them the appropriate tool for each of those tasks and they will start working for you with whatever you need them to do. You can even tame multiple blocklings for each ability and have a small army of adorable cubes to take with you wherever you go! The bottom middle slot of the GUI has the upgrade box as well. Once you craft a new upgrade block, just place it in that slot and the blockling will immediately grow to the next tier.
Blocklings will collect any items they mine or break as well as any drops they pick up from enemies they slay so they make an excellent addition to your Minecraft experience.
Unfortunately because of there being a health system in place, Blocklings can die in battle or from any other elements that cause damage, but rest assured that when they do they drop an item of themselves. This allows you to gather your blockling up and they’ll retain their level, although only their tier 1 upgrades will remain intact. So you can get your buddy back if the unfortunate death happens but you do have to start over a bit to build them back up. This can be the perfect opportunity to adjust any of their abilities and strengths as well as being aware of what might have caused them to die so you can help prevent it from happening again. They will still be loyal to you so you don’t have to tame them again and the best part of this system is won’t lose a friend that has been with you for so many adventures.
So if you want to add a fun and cute as well as potentially very powerful ally to your daily grind then Blocklings is a great mod to add to your game.DownloadForumInstall Guide
