[Top 10] Minecraft Best Cave Seeds (2020 Edition)

Minecraft Best Cave Seeds
Time for some spelunking

For those who don’t know what a seed is, we are not talking about the kind that grows food. No, we mean the great big number in the sky, that determines what your Minecraft world will look like and everything else about it when you spawn. Think about it like this, the Minecraft Gods literally took a seed, planted it, and up sprouted your world. That is what seeds are, only in this case, the seed is not an organic little pebble thing, it’s a number that gets put into the game’s mechanisms, and the result is your world. Now, enough of the technical stuff, let’s talk about cool stuff!

 

Seeds are sought after by players to be the best, most lucrative loot giving, and easiest to build on, so a lot of websites will have sections dedicated to having seed numbers. You could use anything for a seed, but if it’s not a number, the game turns it into a number. From experience, seeds that worked in 1.15 will look the same in 1.16, aside from the obvious Nether update, and ruined portals spawning all over the place, and I’m told it’s the same for 1.14 as well. Also, all positive numbered Bedrock seeds work the same in Java Edition, but not every Java seed can be used in Bedrock if that makes sense. Kind of like all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. These seeds I’m about to reveal have the best caves of all Minecraft and will boggle even the most experienced of miners. Be prepared to be unprepared for this. Let’s go!

Too many monsters!

Three is often considered a divine number, and you’ll find trinities and trios in many aspects of life, from mythology to traffic lights, to that crazy psychic’s alleged third eye. This cave is no different, with all three different types of dungeon spawners leading into each other.

 

Why use this seed

  • Plenty of opportunities for mob farming.
  • Think of what could be in those dungeon chests
  • Plenty of Mossy Cobblestone

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14
  • Java 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

My underground greenhouse

It’s a cave, under a mountain, in a flower forest, with a grass floor. You could live in this mountain! How cool does it sound to have a hidden base under a mountain? It’ll look like you terraformed the place, but really you did nothing. Plus, a spawner.

 

Why use this seed

  • Once lit up, this makes a great place to keep the mobs out.
  • Plenty of stone blocks to keep you stocked up
  • Skeleton spawner = bones, and bow and arrow farm!

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

What part of "too many monsters" didn't you understand?

Three dungeons are great, but how about four! Yes, four! All in one cave! Two zombies, two skeletons! Your monster farming days are just beginning! And there’ll be, once again, so much loot you can get from the chests! I love myself some dungeon looting.

 

Why use this seed?

  • Two zombie/drowned farms, and two skeleton farms
  • Farther apart dungeons, so no awkward combining of farms
  • No spiders, because we all know how much of a pain they are to farm.

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

Well, how's that for structures?

Imagine this, you are walking up to a ravine at x=1432, z=952, and you find an abandoned mineshaft. Always a happy moment. But then you go into the shaft, and you find a stronghold! All you have to do is get into the ravine, and you can do just that! Be careful of spiders and silverfish though. Bane of Arthropods anyone?

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • Find the end portal quick.
  • Loot boxes! How we love them.
  • Make a base out of the structures! Sounds cool? We know.

 

Compatible with Versions

  • Java 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

I could catch a big fish with a worm like that!

Now that’s a cave! It looks like a giant worm came through and ate away all the dirt and stone. Hopefully, it left behind the ores, seeing as we want those. And I hope it doesn’t come back for the villagers. Or maybe… it already ate some!

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • Villagers are always good to have nearby.
  • Think of all the ores!
  • It looks dope! Yes. Dope!

 

Compatible with versions:

  • Java 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

*FInds temple under his house, becomes a super hero* Welp, that's an anime if I ever saw one.

Don’t dig straight down under that house! Or at all if possible. This village needs to keep its stronghold in a better, less visible place if they don’t want all their stuff taken. But they didn’t, and it will be.

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • No cave spider problem.
  • End portal room
  • Trade loot with the villagers. They won’t realize it’s their stuff.

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14
  • Java 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

Sadism is technically happiness...

Ever think to yourself, “Man I need some lava for my ‘insert project here’?” Well, you’re in luck, because this seed has a whole lava river right at spawn! There’s also a village and a desert temple! Let’s get that TNT and lava so you can burn and destroy happily and sadistically. Mostly happily.

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • TNT for free? Sounds sketchy… Let’s do it!
  • Lava for days.
  • Or better yet, Obsidian for days!

 

Compatible with versions:

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14
  • Java 1.16, 1.15, 1.14

We tore down half the portal, but left the other half to spite you with this netherrack and lava. lol

This is at 940, -318, not spawn. But get this, there’s a portal at spawn too! Plus this ravine has two exposed zombie dungeons and exposed diamonds! Talk about the jackpot! Oh yeah, and another village. Why do portals want to spawn so close to villages for some reason?

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • Diamonds!
  • Portals!
  • And Villagers! Oh my!

 

Compatible with versions:

  • Bedrock 1.16, previous versions have no portals
  • Java 1.16, previous versions have no portals

Let's get our arachnophobia on! That's the fear of spiders, don't 'cha know.

An above-surface mineshaft, this seed gives you not one, not three, but a whopping 7 spider spawners! One of them is a regular spider, the rest are all cave spiders. Plus, the portal at spawn leads to a Piglin Bastion! Amazing spider-pig seed!

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • Infinite string!
  • Terracotta everywhere!
  • Who knows what awaits in the bastion?

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, previous versions have no portal or bastion remnant.
  • Java 1.16, previous versions have no portals or bastion remnant.

We had no idea this town was built on top of a haunted castle ground!

This seed has a village that has a ravine that has… drumroll please, a stronghold. The End portal room is exposed, but not quite easy to find. It’s kind of camouflaged, so if that’s too hard, just go to the edge of the ravine, and there will be an opening where you can just waltz in.

 

Reasons to use this seed:

  • The village has a fisherman!
  • The ravine has a waterway down.
  • The stronghold might make an epic base underground.

 

Compatible with versions

  • Bedrock 1.16, 1.15, 1.14
