Blocklings, the newest addition to Minecraft! Well, not really, but with this mod they can be! This mod adds a whole new type of mob to the game, the Blocklings.
They can be found around the place, running around, blocking things up, and are naturally neutral towards you. That is, until they are given flowers, that is when they start to like you, follow you, and ultimately, fight to the death for you! They are similar to other pets already found in the game, except for some very important distinctions. Also, don’t throw away your flowers once you tamed one of these beings, they can be used to heal them if they get hurt.
You can also use flowers to pick your Blocklings up by shift-right clicking them, and they are used in a number of recipes found in this mod, so keep them handy.
Important: the Blocklings Mod requires Minecraft Forge in order to function.
First of the distinctions from other pets, is the fact that they can gain experience and level up, meaning their stats will improve, and they will become better the more combat they see, so keep them at the frontlines! Once they level up, they will also grow up, and become bigger and bigger (until lvl 10, where they will stop physically growing). They will attack anything you attack, so they keep you safe, and alive, or at least try to. If you are playing in creative, there is an unique item available for you that once used will automatically level your Blocklings up.
They also have a unique GUI, which is accessed by shift-right clicking the mob without holding anything in your hands. From here you can apply upgrades, give them weapons, and improve your Blocklings in various ways.
One way of improving them is to create upgrades, of which there are three tiers, of various materials. They are made by placing a flower in the middle of the crafting grid, surrounded by the respective material, such as iron ingots, wood, or even obsidian.
You can also upgrade the speed, health, damage, and defence of the Blocklings using other custom recipes.
Finally, you can give them special upgrades such as shrink, grow, and invisibility by using this final recipe:
The Blocklings Mod offers some very cool and lore friendly new companions, and they are very useful as well. They are vicious and doesn’t give your enemies any quarter, especially not if leveled up or upgraded. They show no mercy, so get your own Pokémon-ish Blockling pet today! You won’t regret it!
