new mobs for MC 1.4
3 Attachment(s)
The latest snapshot ( has added two new mobs - the bat and the witch.

The bat is small, black and cute. It flies around and is neutral to players. I don't know yet where it spawns but I imagine in dark places.

The witch is basically a villager dressed in purple with a wart on its nose and a witchy hat on its head. It is hostile to players in survival. It attacks by throwing potions. Its normal attack is poison but I have also been hit by slowness and weakness.

I'll add more information as it comes to hand.

From Minecraft Forums:

  • Added a passive mob (Bat)
Spawns in dark caves
Sleeps during the day
Hangs on the ceiling when idle, starts flying when players come near
  • Added a hostile mob (Witch)
Throws splash potions of poison, slowness, weakness and instant damage at you
Regenerate health over time
Hold an empty bottle and rise their noses when attacking
Drink potions of instant health and fire resistance to defend themselves in combat
Rarely drop potions of instant health and fire resistance
Is immune to some splash potions
Does not spawn naturally (yet), but a Spawn Egg exists for it in Creative Mode
And the bats still look cute.

Dinnerbone says that the witch is only 1/3 finished.

Tobias Hibbs ‏@Sirhibbsy - Hey! Hey! Can you promise me this: Witches will have broomsticks, witches will have pet cats, witches will spawn in huts

I can give you 2/3

Witches: Yes, they're just a villager with a hat. That's intentional. They're also only about 1/3rd finished. Keep this in mind!
