1.11, the first release of the Exploration Update,[1] is a major update to Minecraft (Java Edition) released on November 14, 2016. This update made large changes to entity IDs, and added illagers (vindicators and evokers), vexes, totems of undying, exploration maps, observers, shulker boxes, woodland mansions and llamas. It also added a warning for players using soon-to-be unsupported Java versions (Java 6 and Java 7).



  • Ported from the Pocket and Windows 10 Editions.
    • May have slight behavior differences due to how redstone works in the Java edition compared to Pocket and Windows 10 Edition.
  • Outputs a redstone signal when it detects a block update.
    • Normal BUDs still remain.

A shulker box closing.

Shulker Boxes
  • Crafted in a crafting table as a single column, with a chest in the middle of the row and a shulker shell both above and below the chest.
  • Work similar to a chest, but keeps its content when broken.
    • If it has any content inside, it will drop itself in Creative mode as well.
    • Cannot be placed inside another shulker box.
    • When hovered over in the inventory, it will show up to 5 slots of its content.
    • Breaks when being pushed by a piston.
  • Use the same opening and closing animations as the Shulker.
  • Can be placed on different sides of a block to open in different directions.
    • When opening, its hitbox changes from 1 block to 1.5 blocks in its opening direction.
      • Because of this, it will not open if there is a block of any kind within the closest half-block area in its opening direction.
  • Can be dyed in any of the available dye colors.
    • Dyed Shulker Boxes have a slightly darker bottom part than the normal one.
  • Dispensers will place the block on the ground.
  • Can be mined with anything, but is mined faster with a pickaxe.


Spawn eggs
Shulker shells
Totems of undying
  • Evokers will always drop one of these upon death.
  • Holding it in either hand will resurrect the player upon taking lethal damage.
    • Gives the player the Absorption and Regeneration effects when activated.
    • Does not prevent death by /kill or the Void.
    • Has an animation when activated, which uses the item's texture and model.

Explorer map leading to an ocean monument

Explorer maps
  • Can only be obtained from cartographer villagers.
  • Used to locate ocean monuments and the new woodland mansions.
    • Ocean explorer maps are slightly blue, while woodland explorer maps are slightly brown.
  • Works like a map, but shows the outlines of land and a single structure icon.
    • Fills in the map with blocks once the player starts exploring the area shown.
  • When resized, it will still show the structure icon, but will lose the outlines.
  • When outside the area on the map, the player icon will be smaller the further away the player is.
    • When 1024 blocks away from the structure, the dot will go from a small icon to a bigger one.


  • 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.
  • Separate 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.
  • Hostile towards players and villagers.
  • 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.
  • Spawn in the woodland mansions upon generation. They will not respawn.
  • May drop emeralds and an iron axe upon death.
  • Added as an end-game challenge, or mini-boss.
  • Will always drop a totem of undying upon death. May drop emeralds too.
  • In battle, they will summon vexes and fangs to attack.
    • Raise their arms when casting a spell.
    • Fangs always deal 6♥♥♥ damage, ignoring armor.
  • Aggressive towards the player and villagers.
  • Spawn in the two upper floors of woodland mansions upon generation. They will not respawn.
  • Will change any blue colored sheep in a radius of 16 blocks into red.

Two vexes in a woodland mansion

  • Spawn only when summoned by an evoker.
  • Appear similar to ghosts, in that they are small, pale, flying mobs that can phase through blocks.
  • Show red marks when about to attack.
  • Attack players and villagers.
  • Hold an iron sword in their main hand.

Three llamas

  • Spawn in extreme hills.
  • Drop leather.

    • If the player hits them, they will spit at the player once, dealing 1♥ damage.
    • If not in a caravan group, they are always aggressive toward wolves.
  • Can be equipped with a carpet for decoration and a chest for storage.
    • Differently colored carpets have different textures when placed on llamas.
    • The amount of storage slots available depends on the strength of the llama.
  • If the player puts a leash on one, up to 10 llamas will be attracted and try to form a caravan.
    • Caravan groups are passive to all mobs.
  • Tamed llamas can be bred with hay bales.

Non-mob entities[]

Evocation fangs
  • Summoned by evokers during their Fang Attack.

    • Players in Creative mode are unaffected by this curse.
    • Curse of Vanishing will make the item disappear if the player dies. /gamerule keepInventory true will prevent this.
