The Minecraft Exploration Update or 1.11 update is here and we thought we’d take you through the additions and changes made to Minecraft 1.11. Aside from minor things like elytra rendering on certain mobs now, this was a very good update that features some very noticeable changes.

Here’s everything in the new Minecraft Exploration Update

Two courses are added: the Curse of Binding (Enchantment ID 10) and the Curse of Vanishing (Enchantment ID 71). Curse of Binding will bind the item to you, making you unable to drop it or take it off if it is an armor item, although it will drop when you die. Players in Creative mode are unaffected by this curse. Curse of Vanishing will make the item disappear if you die. “/gamerule keepInventory true” will prevent this. Cursed tools, armor, and books can be found as loot in some generated structures.

New mob Illager is added. Being relatives to the Villagers, they look similar but have pale gray skin and wear dark clothes. Two kinds of Illagers are introduced: Evokers and Vindicators. Another new mob is called the Vindicator. It separates their arms when aggravated, and holds an Iron Axe in their main hand. Their axe is one of their HandItems, this means their attack disables Shields. They have a byte tag Johnny which is false by default; if set to true, they will attack any nearby mobs, with the exception of other Illagers.

And finally, you have the Llama. It can be equipped with a carpet as a saddle and a chest for storage. Different carpets have different textures when used as saddles. The amount of storage slots available depends on the strength of the Llama. If you put a leash on one, up to 10 llamas will be attracted and try to form a caravan. Caravan groups are passive to all mobs.
