Minecraft 1.19 The Wild Update has finally come out, and like the last major updates, it focuses on the Overworld. Two new biomes are added, with a lot of new blocks, mobs and mechanics for players to try out. With all these new resources to obtain, it is vital to be able to acquire them fast and efficiently - which requires the use of farms.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 farms to build in Minecraft 1.19 the Wild Update.

1. Sculk XP farm

Sculk farming is a method of farming XP and/or sculk growth blocks for decoration by using the sculk catalyst block. If a mob dies near a sculk catalyst, regardless of how it dies, the catalyst will always produce sculk blocks, which can then be mined for XP.

When killed in this way, the mob only drops items - their XP drops are stored inside sculk blocks. This mechanic can be used for bulk XP storage, allowing players to grain a large amount of XP at any time. This sculk XP mechanic can be combined with pretty much all farms that involve players killing mobs. To acquire the sculk catalyst block, players need to find and break it using a Silk Touch pickaxe.

2. Warden farm

With the Warden being the strongest mob in the game, creating a Warden farm is the final endgame challenge. Players need to be careful, however, as the mob is stronger than both the Ender Dragon and the Wither. Designing a farm for the Warden is actually pretty straightforward. Players just need a water pit that draws the warden into a piston grinder, which pushes mobs and deals damage to them.

Place Sculk shrieker in the vicinity of the pit to summon the Wardens. This kind of grinder is the only effective way to kill this mob, as it has too much HP to be killed by fall damage. The warden farm does not yield anything useful - the warden drops only one sculk catalyst and 5 XP.

3. Frog farm

A frog is a passive mob that can spawn in swamps. They are one of the main features of the Wild update, alongside the Mangrove swamp. The Minecraft 1.19 update has added three types of frogs: orange, white, and green, which are based on their home biome's temperature.

Tadpoles are a separate mob from frogs.

There are three frog variants, determined by the biome in which the tadpole grew up. To create a frog farm of a certain color, just breed frogs then carry the tadpoles inside a bucket to the biome at an appropriate temperature.

4. Froglight farm

The 1.19 patch has added a new light source block called Froglight, which is created by frogs after consuming small magma cubes. Froglights have a smooth texture and are used as light sources and decoration. They emit light level 15, the highest level possible for a light-emitting block.

To create a froglight farm, just bring frogs to the Nether then build a farm next to a magma spawner in a bastion remnant. There are three colors of froglight that drop depending on what type of frog kills the magma cube: pearlescent (purple) from warm (white) frogs, ochre (yellow) from temperate (orange) frogs and verdant (green) from cold (green) frogs.

5. Propagule farm

Mangrove trees are a new type of tree added to the game in the Wild update. Players can find them in mangrove swamps. Similar to other trees, mangrove has unique leaves and wood color. However, unlike other Minecraft trees, a mangrove tree doesn’t grow from saplings. Instead, you have to use mangrove propagules that naturally generate hanging from existing Mangrove trees. They are fairly versatile, with the ability to grow on both land and water.

Using bonemeal on a mangrove leaf block will produce propagules. Players can use this mechanic to create an automatic propagule farm.
