Top 10 Minecraft Most XP Mob (Minecraft Highest XP Mobs)

Minecraft Most XP Mob
For the XP!

These mobs are the best if you’re grinding for enchantments or just trying to show off. This list will be in order from lowest to highest from 1 to 10.

This will be a perfect guide for grinding for that efficiency IV enchantment.

10. Magma Cube

This is an important mob for alchemy. The Magma Cube drops 4 XP orbs at its biggest size but each smaller cube will drop XP too. These behave a lot like the slime but drop Magma Cream on death.

Locations:

  • The Nether

9. Slime

This mob is basic, but important. They drop XP just like the Magma Cube, 4 XP orbs for the biggest, then less as they split. Slime balls are really important for pistons and taming horses so be sure to get a few next time you find a slime.

Locations:

  • Certain chunks in most biomes
  • The Swamp

8. Blaze

The Blaze is an important mob since he drops Blaze Rods which are necessary for potions. He drops 10 XP orbs on death. His attack is much like the Ghast except his projectiles don’t explodre. Make sure you’re fire resistant!

Locations:

  • Nether Fortresses

7. Evoker

This mob is tough. He drops 10 XP orbs but spawns Vex who drop 3 XP orbs. These mobs are difficult and will cause a lot of struggle when you explore a woodland mansion or fight a raid. The Evoker is not to be taken lightly.

Locations:

  • Woodland Mansion
  • Raids

6. Guardian

The Guardian is another difficult mob since you can only find them underwater. As you probably already know, fighting underwater is hard. These mobs drop 10 XP orbs on death and they will spawn with friends so be careful. Also watch for lasers!

Locations:

  • Underwater Monuments

5. Baby Zombie

This is a somewhat rare mob, but nothing too crazy. The baby zombie drops 12 XP orbs on death which is pretty decent since you’ll probably come across at least one each night. The XP increases by 10 if you catch him riding a chicken. He is also super fast so there is no running away from this fast.

Locations:

  • All biomes at night
  • Caves

4. Baby Pig Zombie

This mob is pretty much the same as the last one except the consequences for killing one are harsher. They drop the same amount of XP as the last mob except if you kill one, every zombie pigman will know your name. If making the Nether even more hostile is your goal, then this is a great mob to get XP from.

Locations:

  • The Nether

3. The Ravager

The Ravager is a pretty new enemy in Minecraft. He only spawns a few waves into a raid. The Ravager drops 20 XP orbs on defeat, but be careful, he’s much like a hostile Iron Golem and has a large health bar. He also can reach through some walls.

Locations:

  • Raid

2. The Wither

The Wither is one of two bosses in the game. This mob can only be spawned from three wither skulls and soul sand, much like a golem. He drops 50 XP orbs on defeat, but be warned, he isn’t easy. He also drops an item necessary for beacons.

Locations:

  • Only spawned by the player

1. The Ender Dragon

The Ender Dragon is probably exactly what you were expecting at number 1. This mob drops a whopping 12,000 XP orbs. Since this is the last boss of the game you could expect it to be a lot, but this mob surpasses all other mobs in XP by a longshot.

Locations:

  • The End
  • Respawned through End Crystals
