So, you want your very own Minecraft slime farm. We don’t blame you. Once you’ve broken them down, you can use slimeballs to craft all sorts of items, such as magma cream and sticky pistons. Don’t let their innocent, flat faces deter you, slime hasn’t been cute since Flubber.

Minecraft slimes are naturally found in swamps, or deep underground, depending on the light levels. They can swim, climb ladders, and creepily continue to move and hunt for players even when you’re not close by. In fact, they search for enemies at a 16-block distance, and if they don’t find any, they continue to rotate and search for players to attack. Failing that, they will attack either snow or iron golems – this is useful to know when it comes to building your own Minecraft slime farm.
