The latest update to the game was the Caves and Cliffs II update, which was rolled out a few days ago. It is the second update in the series and it brings so much more to the game. We now have new features in the game, new mountain biomes, new cave biomes, and an increased world height.
The update has brought some changes to the game. One of such changes is the spawn locations of glow squids and some other mobs.
What are Glow Squids in Minecraft?
There are a lot of animals and mobs found in Minecraft and Squids are one of them. Glow Squids are a variant of Squids, they look the same structure wise but have the special feature so that they can glow. They were recently added with the game in Minecraft 1.17 version, with the first Caves & Cliffs update.
Glow Squids are not very hostile against players if they avoid getting in their way. They are considered passive mobs that will attack you if you harm them.
Drops from Glow Squid
They have the ability to glow but doesn’t produce light themselves. They also drop nice items as other passive mobs in-game. You will get anywhere up to three glow ink sacs from them, which is a really cool thing to have. You can use these glowing ink sacs to craft glow item frames.
The spawn location in Minecraft 1.17 for Glow Squids was under deep water that is below sea level (Y63). However, in Minecraft 1.18, Glow Squids’ spawn location has been changed. They will no longer spawn below sea level (Y30). Other than that, their biome remains unchanged. You will usually find them in schools of 2 to 4.
Things to note
If you are looking to get more glowing ink sac drops from Glow Squids, then you have to use a special weapon. The weapon you use to kill them must have looting enchantment.
