New Minecraft mob vote – The Allay
This year’s Minecraft Live mob vote is going to be a tough one, as the second mob to be announced, the Allay, is just as awesome as the Glare!
During Minecraft Live on October 16th, 2021, Mojang will ask us to vote for the next mob to join Minecraft. This week, we’ll be introduced to the mobs that are up for the vote, with the Glare announced first on October 11th.
On October 12th, Mojang released another mob vote introduction video, this one showing Tiny Jens meeting the Allay. While the Glare has a tremendous amount of use in game, the Allay is certainly a worthy contender. I’m already truly torn, and we’re only two mobs in…
What is the Allay in Minecraft?
The Allay might be even cuter than the Glare, if that’s even possible. A small, blue, flying creature, somewhat reminiscent of a friendly vex, the Allay is a helpful gatherer of items. If you give an allay one of an item, it will fly off, returning with more of the same item. Super useful!
As well as this, the Allay finally gives another use to the noteblock. The noteblock is currently a relatively useless block unless you are a total redstone whizz (which I am, sadly, most certainly not). If the Alay is brought into Minecraft, it will be given an additional use to intricate doorbells, as Allays will return to a noteblock to deliver their haul. And they’ll do a cute little dance, too, which is clearly the most important part.
Why should you vote for the Allay?
You mean, aside from the fact that it dances? Obviously, the main use of the Allay is the collection of items, which could have real time-saving implications in game. We’re not yet sure the extent of it’s gathering capabilities, though. Can you just keep giving it diamonds and it’ll mine for more? That would be pretty game-breaking, wouldn’t it? And I doubt it’s capable of holding a pickaxe, anyway. The assumption instead is that it will probably just collect items you already own, for example rushing back to your base while you’re miles away and starting to starve. Or one of those many occasions during a build when you end up one block short of completion. Having said that, bundles are coming to survival mode any time now, so we’ll already be able to carry more at a time.
But don’t forget… it does dance.
Minecraft mob vote 2021 – Other choices
The Glare was the first mob announced for the 2021 Minecraft mob vote. Another friendly and useful mob, the Glare will float to area of light level 0 and below, in other words where hostile mobs can spawn. This will be super useful to warn you of dangers down in the Deep Dark.
The Copper Golem was the last mob to be announced for the vote. Giving a new use for the controversial copper ore, the golem will also bring a new craftable item with it, the copper button. This is because the Copper cutie just loves pressing copper buttons. Super useful in Redstone contraptions.
