Other Notes & Reminders
- Currently, Minecraft Dungeons is not available for crossplay, however, it may be possible in future updates.
- During exploration, you can use the Ender Pearl to teleport you to your ally/allies if you are separated from them.
- If one of your allies has fallen in battle, you can revive them within 30 seconds, or else you will also lose a life.
- In conjunction with allies fallen in battle, the environment of the game will shift into the night which means more enemies will spawn in the area and try to close in towards the fallen ally.
- When an ally has revived, make it a habit to quickly use a potion to replenish your health. Reviving does not recover full health.
- Loot such as Armor, Weapons, Artifacts, and Emeralds are not shared. However, bundles of arrows and consumable items are.
- The amount and difficulty of mobs depend on the number of players in a party.
