How to Get Started

Upon first spawning into your world, you may immediately notice some changes to your world. Many fantastical new structures can be found across the world, deep underground, and in the sky.

New Structures

Dungeons Arise Pirate Ship
Dungeons Arise Mushroom Town
Dungeons Arise Giant Tower
Dungeons Arise Airship

There are tons of structures that you can find scattered throughout your world, many of which will tower far above you. From haunted pirate ships to floating vehicles, this mod has it all. Many of these dungeons have twists, turns, and can make for an interesting base… If you can clear out the existing inhabitants.

Challenging Enemies

While you can storm into a dungeon at any time, be prepared to meet the enemies that are waiting inside. Many of these enemies are modified, such as humanoid-spiders that will hang from the ceiling. Many of these enemies will appear from spawners, so endless amounts will spawn to stop you.

Powerful Loot

Dungeons Arise Loot

Your efforts will not go unrewarded, however, as extremely good loot can be found within each of the dungeon chests. Iron, diamonds, tools, and much more can be found. This can be great to get a head start early on or to avoid spending forever mining for resources in the late game.



Following that, you now know how to install When Dungeons Arise and what to expect from your first playthrough. A majority of the dungeons are easy to find, as their large size can be seen from almost anywhere. Some dungeons, like the asylum and large skeleton are tough to find, as they are found underground. Some may feel that the dungeons are not well-balanced, as players could potentially find diamonds from the first chest they see. While this is true, having early access to resources can be helpful when you install multiple late-game mods. Regardless of how you want to play, you are ready to install When Dungeons Arise and jump into the action.
