Best 1.17 Java Seeds

Mushroom Mesa

Mushroom Mesa Biome in Minecraft.

Seed: 1848767226921206774

Right at the spawn of this seed is a Mushroom Biome and a massive Mesa Biome together. Starting next to these biomes is rare enough, but there are many more reasons to make this seed your first 1.17 home. More rare Biomes are a short distance from spawn, such as the incredibly rare Eroded Badlands variant, and a Frozen Ocean Biome. Within the Frozen Ocean biome is a Shipwreck, and there is another Shipwreck inside a Savannah Village near the spawn!

The Earth Temple

Seed: 2027137130838960293

This seed spawns you right next to a Jungle Temple, which is one of the rarest structures in the game. Near to the spawn point is a large cliff overlooking a lake, which is a perfect spot to build a home. There is also a Mesa Biome a short distance away from the spawn, and a village that spawns right on the border between the Jungle Biome and the Mesa Biome. All things considered, this is a perfect spawn for newcomers to the game that are fond of the Jungle Biome.

The Fire Temple

A Buried Desert Temple in Minecraft.

Near the spawn you will find other helpful structures for starting off a new Minecraft world such as an Ocean Monument, a Desert Village, and a Ruined Portal. From the spawn area, you can see a miniature Frozen Ocean Biome in the distance, which provides a pleasant aesthetic if you're fond of Ice Hills.

The Water Temple

An Ocean Monument with Guardians in Minecraft.

Seed: 1276159713567299839

Not a lot of players like to spawn on a Desert Island because of the lack of resources, but this seed is definitely worth a shot for players who want to test their Minecraft survival skills. There are two Ocean Monuments a short distance away from the massive desert island that you spawn on. There is also a ruined portal near one of the Ocean Monuments. Last, there is an interesting fishing Village that spans out into the water on the desert island. This seed is perfect for players that like to have a lot of room and visibility for their builds.

A Village by a Mansion in Minecraft.

Seed: 157272374696404761

The Villagers you spawn next to in this seed have set out to take over the Woodland Mansion to which their Village is connected. This seed provides you a chance to gear up and claim a Woodland Mansion right at the start, which is an excellent source for housing and home defense. The only difficulty is defeating the Illagers inside! Still, if you're looking to get into the heart of the action of Minecraft, this is a perfect starting seed for the new season!

    • Woodland Mansion: 55 75
    • Stronghold Stairway: 1556 -492

Best 1.17 Bedrock Seeds

Jungletown

A Village by a Jungle Temple in minecraft.

Seed: 890705268

This is a nice, simple Bedrock seed that spawns you next to a Jungle Temple and Village. You don't have to travel far to reach a multitude of Biomes for access to most of the game's resources necessary for a survival world. This seed has nothing immediately extravagant about it, but we wanted to include it in the list since it's perfect start for new or casual players that are fond of the Jungle Biome.

  • Key Locations
    • Jungle Temple: 200 10
    • Stronghold Stairway: -332 -1212
    • Village: 165 55

    • Spider Spawner: -165 23 -7

Blood Amethyst

A Pillager Outpost by a Desert Temple in Minecraft.

Seed: -348588776

This seed places you near a Desert Village, Desert Temple, Pillager Outpost, and a Woodland Mansion when you spawn. The Village spawns by a small ravine that leads down to the new Amethyst Geode structure added to Minecraft with the Caves & Cliffs update. The Pillager Outpost and Desert Temple are right next to each other and in the middle of the path between the Desert Village and Woodland Mansion. This seed is perfect for players who like to make stories out of their Survival World. Is there a war happening here? Does the Amethyst below the Village have something to do with it?

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Temple: 150 275
    • Woodland Mansion: -520 550
    • Village #1: 29 623

Clean Amethyst

An Amethyst Geode on an Ocean Monument in Minecraft.

Seed: -2036761388

This is another interesting seed that is a wonderful example of how interesting and fun the new world generation mechanics can be for Minecraft 1.17. If you're willing to make a long trip in this seed, you will find an Ocean Monument with an Amethyst Geode generated right on top of it. There is a wide variety of biomes nearby and another Amethyst Geode by itself. All things considered, this adds a degree of difficulty to getting Amethyst in the game, and by extension, a heightened sense of accomplishment when you get it!

  • Key Locations
    • Ocean Monument w/ Geode: -1144 -1267
    • Stronghold: -1100 -1180
    • Taiga Village #1: 90 -1175
    • Taiga Village #2: 180 -1135
    • Shipwreck: -1080 -1600

Rare World

Many Rare Biomes touching in Minecraft

Seed: 25836763

This is one of the most interesting seeds we have on this list! It is unique in that the seed spawns you near a Village that is in between several rare Biomes. You can tell the Villagers who live here picked this spot for their Village because it has immediate access to several Biome types and their respective resources. To top it all off, another Village generates a short distance away that has three Blacksmiths!

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Village: -235 90
    • Plains Village: -300 -330
    • Desert Temple: 600 585
    • Stronghold: 1125 548
    • Taiga Village: 120 -720

A Town of Pirates

A Village near a Shipwreck in Minecraft.

Seed: 1137027184

This is an interesting seed that spawns players near a Plains/Desert Village a short distance away from a fully intact Shipwreck. Players can consider themselves one of the Pirate Villagers that helped establish this town after the wreck, or simply use it as an excellent source of Trade and Pirate Booty. However, even outside of making a story around it, this is a great seed with a solid foundation for players to get their Survival World started.

  • Key Locations
    • Village: 475 100
    • Shipwreck #1: 395 0
    • Shipwreck #2: -120 165
