Is the Warden in Minecraft 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Part 2?

The Warden is powerful... but are they even here?

Alongside the Wither, Elder Guardian, and Ender Dragon, and all of their boss-tier power, the other most powerful boss in Minecraft lore is a creature called the Warden. The Warden is located in an underground area called the Deep Dark and Deep Dark Cities.

The mob is completely blind, the first of its kind, and navigates via a sense of smell and vibrations. That said, where can you find this mob in Minecraft 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Part 2?

Unfortunately, you can’t.

Wardens only spawn in the Deep Dark and Deep Dark Cities, and those do not currently generate in Minecraft. The only cave biomes added with the release of 1.18 were the Dripstone Caves and the Lush Caves. The Warden cannot spawn in either of these, and thus the addition of the Warden has been delayed along with the addition of the Deep Dark.

The Deep Dark, its cities, and its Wardens will instead be released in 2022 along with the next major update, The Wild Update.
