Woodland Prison
Woodland Prison.png

The woodland prison is a secret mission in Minecraft Dungeons that can only be found by starting an ancient hunt. It is located underneath the woodland mansion.


The woodland prison is a fairly simple mission. The hero spawns in a room with a lever, using this lever will cause doors to open, leading to different parts of the mission. The prison is filled with emerald pots and chests, most of which you will need to complete a short ambush before accessing. Before leaving, the hero must acquire a diamond key golem, which is locked behind a door, that will need to be opened by a lever. Sometimes, an area with a button, that looks like a brick in the wall, will generate. Pressing the button gives access to a gold chest, and sometimes an obsidian chest will generate, with a wisp that leads the hero to it.

A wisp, also known as a ghost, is a passive non-attackable mob-like entity.


A wisp is a small ghostly mob that bears a resemblance to a baby ghast. However, there are many differences. While a baby ghast has a translucent body, a wisp’s top texture has slight subtle resemblance to the blue block within beacons found within the base game, while the rest of it’s body has a light blue color. A wisp’s eyes and mouth bear the darkest shade of blue, despite still being slightly lighter than what one would consider to be dark blue. The eyes also appear to very slightly bleed over the edge of the face and onto the side of the texture. There is a small white line texture below the eyes and the mouth, while there is also a subtle blue line above both of the eyes, lighter than the eyes and just barely slightly darker than the rest of the face. A Wisp appears to have a white 2D texture for it's arms, and a light blue 2D texture for it’s legs. A wisp seems to appears to be floating due to its visible arm and leg appearing as if it were moving back and pointing down. A wisp’s eyes and mouth appear to be wide open as if in a state of terror or astonishment.



A wisp, when found, circles around a wall with a interactable brick. When clicked, the wall opens up and reveals a hidden room that occasionally contains six emerald pots, a common chest, or an obsidian chest. When nearby, it will start making a ghost like noise and start to disappear when approached.




Minecraft Dungeons wisps and the woodland prison.


  • In the game files, the wisp is referred to internally as a WispHint, WispCore, and the WoodlandWisp.
  • Despite looking like a mob, a wisp is not considered a mob in the game files, it is considered as a clue leading to a secret.
