Minecraft: Here’s How To Find Warped Forest

Warped Forestr

The 1.16 update marked the release of new biomes in the Nether. The update was named the Nether Update and was released on two separate occasions. The first update came with the 1.16 update that introduced us to the Warped Forest biome. Even 3 updates later, Warped Forests remains a mystery to many so how do you find the Warped Forest in Minecraft?

  • Article Breakdown:
  • There’s no shortcut to finding the Warped Forest in Minecraft.
  • You’ll have to wander through the Nether and spot it.
  • Luckily though, Warped Forests have distinct green colors from the rest of the Nether so, they’ll be much easier to spot than the rest of the biomes and structures in the Nether.

Warped Forest is a biome in Minecraft

As I’ve mentioned previously, Warped Forest is a biome in Minecraft that is easy to spot due to the vibrant cyan color of the trees and the dirt. It is often compared to Crimson Forests that are its vibrant red equivalent. It has all the specifications of a regular forest in the Overworld but is much smaller. Personally, I find Warped Forest to be the most beautiful biome in Minecraft, and I have been building with the materials it has to offer for quite some time now.

The best way to describe a Warped Forest is to say that it looks trippy and like you’re hallucinating. The cyan, vibrant red and purple hues shouldn’t work, but they do in the case of this biome.

What is the easiest way to find a Warped Forest?

The easiest way to find a Warped Forest is to go into the Nether and find it. If you’re lucky, you’ll perhaps open up a portal that leads you straight into the forest but if that’s not the case, it would be best to craft yourself a spyglass, increase the render distance, and find a spot where you have a clear view of the Nether, preferably somewhere up high.

Press use on the spyglass and begin scouting for the cyan color with purple details. Once you’ve spotted the colors, you have found a Warped Forest. Now it’s just a matter of surviving long enough to actually get to it. As you probably already know the Nether is a dangerous place and most mobs are out to get you in it.

A Warped Forest is likely the most peaceful place you’ll find in the Nether. No hostile mobs spawn in them naturally unless they wander off or you bring them to the Warped Forest. Spotting a Hoglin in a Warped Forest can be an indicator that you’re near a Bastion Remnant where you can pick up some good loot.

Is Warped Forest the rarest biome in the Nether?

Warped Forests aren’t rare at all but aren’t common either. They’re classified as being uncommon. Compared to Crimson Forests, Warped Forests are harder to find since Crimson Forests are classified as common in the Nether.

Generally speaking, the Nether doesn’t have much variety when it comes to biomes and any occurrence of seeing a biome in the Nether is not exactly as rare as some are in the Overworld. It would be amazing if Mojang would add additional biomes to the Neter that are much rarer than others so that exploring the Nether could become an adventure on its own just like it is in the Overworld.

In the Nether, you won’t find that biomes are rare, but instead, you’ll find that the structures able to generate in the Nether are. One of the rarest ones is a Nether Fortress that likely has the most valuable items in all of the Nether but is also the most dangerous structure in the Nether. It’s a high-risk high-profit type of situation.

Resources you can get from the Warped Forest

There are plenty of resources you can find in a Warped Forest and it’s safe to say that they are unique so here’s a list of all resources you can find in a Warped Forest:

  • Warped Nylium
  • Warped Stem
  • Warped Wart Block
  • Shroomlight
  • Warped Roots
  • Crimson Roots
  • Warped Fungus
  • Crimson Fungus
  • Nether Sprouts
  • Twisting Vines

Let’s discuss some of these further. Warped Nylium is the equivalent of grass in the Overworld but in terms of mining it, you can only mine it with a silk touch shovel or any other tool. You can also get it from Endermen that are the only naturally occurring mob in a Warped Forest.

Crimson Fungus can produce Crimson trees but not if they’re planted on Crimson Nylium. Warped fungus produces Warped trees if you bonemeal them as well. They must be planted on Nylium though.

Nylium can spread in the same way grass does but you’ll have to bonemeal it and it has to be surrounded by Netherrack to spread. Warped Stem is the Nether equivalent of a wood block in the Overworld and you can do with it anything you can do with regular trees in Minecraft. The biggest benefit of Warped stems and Warped planks is that they are fireproof so if you plan on building with them, you don’t have to fear that they’ll burn down.

Warped Forests wouldn’t be the same without Warped Wart Blocks which are the Nether equivalent of leaves in the Overworld. Planting and bonemeal a Warped Funghus will produce a lot of it and the fastest way to mine it without any enchantments is by using a hoe.

Warped fungi aren’t just for creating Warped trees though. You can also use them to scare off Hoglins. Once they see a Warped fungus, they’ll go up to 7 blocks away from it, so fighting them in a Bastion Remnant becomes increasingly easier if you have enough Warped Fungus in your inventory.


How to Make a Nether Portal in Minecraft?

Can you grow a Warped Forest in the Overworld?

It won’t look nearly as good as it looks in the Nether because there’s no biome blend, but it’s possible to do so. If you don’t have a silk touch shovel I suggest killing a few Endermen to get your hands on Warped Nylium. Then, you should collect a few stacks of Netherrack, depending on how big you want the forest to be.

Bonemeal is essential in making one such farm since it’ll allow you to spread Warped Nylium easily. Warped Nylium will only spread one at a time so be prepared to have a lot of Bone Meal at your disposal. Bone meaning Nylium is likely to produce Warped Fungus and once one spawns, you can then bonemeal it to create a tree.

Crimson Forest VS Warped Forest

Crimson Forests will be harder to spot since their primary color is red and as we all know, Nether is mostly red in color. Crimson Forests will be easier to find though. Turning the battle between the two types of forests into which one looks better all depends on your preferences. I personally love the Warped Forest better but have built it with the resources of a Crimson Forest as well.
