7 Minecraft Marketplace: The Spooky Guardian

The Scary Guardian in Minecraft

Minecraft fans may have first felt a pang of jealousy upon discovering that the Gourdian Armor set would be released as a variant of the Grim Armor set for the Minecraft Dungeons Halloween event, Spookier Fall 2021. However, Mojang finally decided to add the Spooky Gourdian set as a free item on the Minecraft Marketplace for players to enjoy. Minecraft‘s Bedrock Edition as well.

The Spooky Gourdian set gives players the appearance of wearing a Soul Fire Jack O’Lantern as a helmet within an otherwise dark armor set. The Spooky Gourdian set will be available for free from October 13 to November 2, 2021. Unfortunately for Minecraft players using the Java edition of the game, there is no known way for them to acquire the Spooky Gourdian set at this time.

6 Minecraft Marketplace: The Cauldron Cover

Much like the Spooky Gourdian set available for Minecraft Bedrock Edition players, the Cauldron Cover set found on the Minecraft Marketplace from October 19 to November 2 is also inspired by an armor set from Minecraft Dungeons: the Armor of the Cauldron. Unlike the free Spooky Gourdian set, however, the Cauldron Cover set will cost players a nominal fee.

The Cauldron Cover set lets players dress up in a rather goofy Halloween costume to look like a bubbling witch’s cauldron. Players who value exclusivity may appreciate this set over the Spooky Guardian simply because the Cauldron Cover set cannot be acquired for free.

While the Minecraft Dungeons “Night Mode” might not be a brand new feature for Spookier Fall 2021, players will surely be pleased to note that issues with mobs spawning during Night Mode have been resolved just in time to enjoy the creeps of darkness. Night mode in Minecraft Dungeons was used to set the spooky atmosphere in the game’s Spooky Fall 2020 trials and is now being used to set the tone for Spookier Fall 2021.

Minecraft Dungeons players brave enough to tackle the game’s night mode will encounter aggressive mobs at an increased rate. Beyond that, players will take continuous damage from the night itself, represented by a ghost that attacks players at fixed intervals. The only way for players to end Night Mode in Minecraft Dungeons is to revive all fallen heroes. Technically, the night also ends if all players are dead.
