  • Saturation is no longer required for the "How Did We Get Here?" advancement.
Illager patrols
  • Vindicators are no longer part of patrols.
  • Doubled the minimum time to spawn from 5 minutes to 10–11 minutes.
  • Patrols now follow hostile mob spawning rules.
    • Patrols no longer spawn if the block light level disallows monster spawning.
