The Minecraft 1.20 Trails & Tales update introduces lots of improvements to your amor. Armor trims allow you to customise your armor in new ways and stand out with 11 different patterns which can be dyed in 10 different colors.

The new "Smithing Templates" items are used to trim your armor or upgrade it from Diamond to Netherite. This means that the traditional way of unlocking Netherite armor on 1.20 skyblock servers will be different to previous versions. When playing on co-op servers, you can customize your amor to fit you and stand out from other players.

New Blocks

Bamboo Blocks:

Craft items like stairs, slabs and blocks with the new Bamboo blocks. On SkyBlock, these are perfect areas such as a Panda Enclosure! It also includes new Mosaic blocks which are great for your island houses.

Cherry Blocks:

As with most biomes, they are available in SkyBlock through quests or the item shop when you're playing on multiplayer servers. They have a beautiful pink color and are perfect for those who want to try a new style on their island.

Decorative Blocks:

The 1.20 update introduces a range of new decor blocks too! These include hanging signs, which are great for labelling areas such as your cobblestone generator, your farm and more.

Decorated pots allow you to add more details to your homely areas. The pitcher plant is a new plant which is great for your SkyBlock gardens or to spruce up other areas such as your mob farms. Torchflower is a new type of flower which looks unlike any other!

New Mobs


The Snifer mob won the Minecraft Live 2022 vote and is considered to be the first prehistoric in the game. It looks unlike any other type of mob and could be a great companion on your island adventure.


Camels are a new ridable mob which are perfect for exploring your larger islands or for creating a desert or ancient vibe.
