Spawning[edit | edit source]
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
Wyverns spawn naturally on any opaque block in light levels of 9 or above in the Wyvern Lair.
Common wyverns are at least 2-3 blocks long and 3-4 blocks tall. Mother wyverns and tier 2 wyverns are about 8-9 blocks long and 4.5 blocks tall.
Drops[edit | edit source]
When killed, wyverns will drop:
- Egg (10% chance)
- 5 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
- Saddle (if equipped)
- Horse Armor (if equipped)
- Chest + contents (if equipped)
- 1–4 maggots if the wyvern is an undead wyvern.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Movement[edit | edit source]
Wyverns will wander and fly around aimlessly in the Wyvern Lair. After flying for some period of time, they will sometimes float downwards. If a wyvern gets below layer 10 in the Wyvern Lair, they will be instantly removed from the world. Unlike the ender dragon, wyverns have an unpredictable flight pattern.
If the player is within a 12-16 block radius of a wyvern, they will attack and poison them. They will only attack on Easy or higher difficulty; switching to the Peaceful setting will not make them despawn. It will, however, prevent them from doing any damage to you, but they can still poison you. They will also attack any mob that provokes them, and may stop attacking and try to fly away aimlessly if their health is below half.
Tamed wyverns don't tend to fly around like wild wyverns do, but they may fly away if they have taken damage from a non-player source, such as skeleton arrows. It is recommended to tie them to a fence with a lead (although it may break if they get loose) or put them in a roofed enclosure to prevent them from escaping. Another option is to use a whip on them to make them sit. A tamed wyvern will not attack their owner.
Taming[edit | edit source]
A wyvern can be tamed by hatching a wyvern egg. Once the egg has been placed, it will eventually hatch into a friendly baby wyvern, and it will take about one or two Minecraft days (20 to 40 minutes) for the tamed wyvern to grow to full size. Mother wyverns and tier 2 wyverns take longer to grow, as they are larger than the common wyvern variants. After the tamed wyvern has grown up, it can be equipped with a saddle, chest, and armor.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Riding[edit | edit source]
Wyverns can be equipped with either saddles found in dungeons or a crafted saddle. When a wyvern has been tamed and saddled, the player can control it with the standard directional controls, jump or fly, and the mouse. You can dismount a wyvern with the dismount control, and descend with the descend control. Like other mountable mobs, a player can use any item while riding a wyvern.
A ridden wyvern will automatically run up any one block high slope. They can also run very fast, and are one of the most, if not, the fastest ridden mobs in Mo' Creatures. Wyverns can fly much faster than pegasus or fairy horses, as well as minecarts. They can also be combined with speed potions.
Protection[edit | edit source]
Wyverns can be equipped with horse armor to reduce the damage it receives. All three types can be used, including iron, gold, or diamond. The only type of armor that wyverns can't wear is crystal mount armor. To place armor on a wyvern, right-click on the wyvern with the armor. To take the armor off, use shears or place the wyvern in a pet amulet.
Storage[edit | edit source]
A chest can be given to tamed wyvern to carry an inventory of 18 slots, which can be opened with sneak and right-click.
Sitting[edit | edit source]
A whip can be used to make tamed wyvern sit and remain stationary, this can prevent a tamed wyvern from flying away or getting lost.
Variations[edit | edit source]
Wyverns will typically spawn using one of 9 different skins. These include: green (jungle), yellow (sand), orange-red (savanna), light green (swamp), icy blue (Arctic), brown (mountain), grey (cave), blue (sea), and red (mother).
Mother wyvern[edit | edit source]
Mother wyverns are the largest and rarest types of wyverns. Their appearance is bright red, so don't get confused between a savanna wyvern and a mother. Wild mother wyverns are much smaller than tamed mother wyverns, being at least the same size as a common wyvern.
Since they are so rare, they can be very hard to find. After you hatch a mother wyvern egg and wait a while, you will see that they get bigger than the more common wyverns; mother wyverns are at least twice the size of normal wyverns when they are fully grown. A mother wyvern can be given either an essence of undead, dark, or light. However, since mother wyverns are red, they cannot be given an essence of fire.
Ghost wyvern[edit | edit source]
A ghost wyvern has a chance of spawning when a tamed wyvern has been killed. Ghost wyverns can also be equipped with a saddle, chest, and horse armor, just like regular wyverns. There is a 25% chance that a ghost wyvern will spawn when killed. Wyverns can become a ghost regardless of their size even if they're not fully grown. There are 12 types of ghost wyverns. Wyverns that are killed will have their respective variant pass on into the ghost's form, and they each behave in the same way. It is possible to see through a ghost wyvern, as they are transparent.
Light wyvern[edit | edit source]
A light wyvern is creamy-white in color, and can be obtained by giving a mother wyvern an essence of light.
Dark wyvern[edit | edit source]
A dark wyvern is black in color, and has red eyes. They can be obtained by giving a mother wyvern an essence of darkness.
Undead wyvern[edit | edit source]
An undead wyvern is rotting-green in color, and can be created by giving a mother wyvern an essence of undead. They take damage from splash potions of Healing, and are healed with splash potions of Harming. They also take extra damage from the Smite enchantment.
