During my Minecraft adventures, I spotted a rather unique and cute blue-colored flying mob called Allay. With many players wondering what this curious creature is, I have made a guide answering everything you need to know about it.
What does the Allay do in Minecraft?
The Allay is a friendly mob added to the Minecraft 1.19 Wild update after winning the Minecraft Live mob fan vote. It appears as a friendly, blue ghost-like creature with wings that loves music. The Allay is a passive mob, which means it will not attack any entity in the game under any circumstances.
The Allay can be a very helpful and extremely cute mob that players can send out to gather items. If any item is given to an Allay, it will go search for a matching item to bring back. An Allay will follow you up to 64 blocks after giving an item and will attempt to search for the same item up to 32 blocks away from you. If a Note Block is played near an Allay, it will spend about 30 seconds seeking items around the Note Block and returning them to the block.
Allays have only 20 health points but are not targeted by most hostile mobs and cannot be hurt by their owner. If Allays are hurt, they will start moving rapidly in different directions for a short duration, avoiding the source of danger.
Where to find the Allay
The Allay mob is found around pillager outposts inside cages and also in woodland mansion jail cells. Both locations will spawn up to three Allays in each cage. When broken out of their cages, Allays will start to wander around until given an item. You can also equip a lead to an Allay to bring it to another location.
Breeding Allays in Minecraft
Allays can be bred by giving two Allays amethyst shards while a jukebox is playing nearby. The resulting baby Allay will be a mix of the colors of its parents. You can also use a lead and a name tag on Allays to name them as you like.
Using Allays to Farm Items in Minecraft
The Allay is a useful tool for gathering resources and automating tasks. It can be used to collect items from mines, farms, and other locations, saving players time and effort. The Allay can also be used to transport items between different areas, such as between storage chests and crafting stations.
Breeding multiple Allays is a viable strategy for creating items farms. Placing a Note Block near your farming location is a good idea for farm items. The Allay will gather items and return them to the Note Block, making gathering a little bit quicker.
