All About the Mesa [Bryce, Dungeon, and Mineshaft] – 1.10.X Seed

Mesas are a colorful biome that you can’t find very often in Minecraft. Besides just being rare, this seed is special because it has both regular and bryce mesa and it holds an easy-to-get-to dungeon and an abandoned mineshaft. This is an exciting seed to explore.

The Bryce Mesa

When you first spawn on this seed, you’ll be in the middle of a plains biome. All you have to do to get to the mesa is head west. The first part of the mesa you’ll see is the small bryce mesa.

Bryce mesa contrasts the usual large, round hills of the mesa by having flat areas with sharp peaks around. This bryce isn’t very large, but the beauty of it all makes up for the size. The river flowing through the peaks gives a stunning color contrast between the blue of the water and oranges of the clay.

The Dungeon

You can continue further into the mesa past the bryce, and one of the first caves you come to will have an exposed dungeon. (The coordinates are -698 / 78 / 102 if you miss it.) This skeleton dungeon has two chests that you can look through after you disable the spawner.

The chests hold some valuable items including iron, gold, a name tag, music discs (for those of you who like to jam while playing Minecraft), diamond horse armor, and an enchanted book.

The Abandoned Mineshaft

One of the great things about mesas is that there is gold at any depth. If you walk into any cave, chances are you’ll find gold. If you’re someone who uses quite a bit of gold, mesas are a great find and worth your time to explore.

Abandoned mineshafts with openings on the surface are also a common occurrence in mesas. You can find a few if you continue west through the biome. Not only can you find gold on the walls of the mines, but you can also find minecart chests full of special items. At the coordinates of -947 / 63 / 247, you can find a minecart chest sitting right out in the open air.

From there, you can look at the hills to your right to find the openings of a few mineshaft tunnels. Explore the many directions the mineshaft takes you and see what other chests or ores you can find.
