Hey guys it is _Woolfie, today i will be explaining a lot about mob spawners. I will go through each mob spawner and explain how they will spawn and where they should be placed for them to spawn. Including the requirements allowing them to spawn in Skyblock & Islands. I will also give additional information about each mob and what they drop.

(If there are any mistakes please let me know. Im open to anything and any suggestions for the thread).

It does look bright in the screen shots and that is because i am using night vision. Without it you would not be able to see anything. So just imagine that the room is dark. ;)

If a mob needs a certain requirement it will be in their explanation below.
When it says in the description "No block requirement needed", that means that the mob does not need a special block to spawn.

This is a really impressive post @_Woolfie I feel a lot of players are going to find this really useful, especially players who are newer. It is really descriptive and gives a lot of information about each Mob. You did a great job on this!

Hey, this is very well-written and organized, Wolf. Nice job. It gives a lot of information on mobs, and I'm sure Survival and Islands players will also find this guide useful. Keep up the great work!

P.S. Ghasts can also drop glowstone dust, and Zombies can also drop iron tools, mainly an axe or hoe.

Wow, the tip for villagers will be VERY helpful. It's always a pain to wait for them to restock.

(TIP) If you buy out a villagers items, throw an emerald to them and their trades should restock in a matter of seconds.
All the rest is also just as helpful and valuable, this is just the one that stuck out to me.
Thank you, _Woolfie!
