Minecraft: All Nether Biomes
In the Nether realm there are 5 exquisite biomes to explore. These biomes provide more diversity within the Nether’s environment.
Each biome has their own unique blocks and specialities so as a Minecraft player it is great to have some wisdom on this topic! Whether you want to know the places to explore or the details from mobs to design, we’ve got you.
List of Nether Biomes
Currently, the Nether has these different biomes to offer:

The Nether Wastes are the most well known biome in the Nether. In the Nether Wastes there are typically large oceans of lava and Netherrack everywhere. The Nether Wastes tends to be the “base biome” that connects all the other biomes together.
Nether Fortresses can be found in the Nether Wastes. You can find rare loot by searching a Nether Fortress which is quite exciting!

Brown Mushrooms can make Mushroom Stew, Rabbit Stew, Suspicious Stew, & Fermented Spider Eye.

The Warped Forest biome has a teal-like color scheme. Although the Crimson Forests and Warped Forests have their similarities, their color schemes are completely different. The fog in the Warped forest has a cool blueish tone. Although the Nether may be a scary place for some of us, the Warped Forest is probably the calmest biome with the least mobs.
Previously, the Warped Forest was known as the “Blue Nether Wart Forest”.

Mobs in the Warped Forest
As mentioned earlier the Warped Forest Biome is calm. The only 2 mobs you’ll see in this biome are Endermen and Striders.
Soul Sand Valley
Soul Sand Valleys are covered in dry Soul Sand and Soul Soil. Soul Sand slows characters and mobs down (when walked on) unless you have “Soul Speed” on your boots. Nether Fortresses, Caverns, and Bastions can be found in this biome. Something unique you will find in the Soul Sand Valley is “Soul Fire”. Soul Fire naturally generates and has a peculiar turquoise color. Don’t be too scared of the intimidating turquoise flames, they are just chilling there in peace. On top of all this, you might see some lovely Basalt Pillars that give this biome even more flair.
Vegetation in the Soul Sand Valley
The Vegetation Soul Sand Valleys have to offer are Crimsons Roots, Mushrooms, Fungi, Nether Sprouts, & Huge Fungi.
Blocks in the Soul Sand Valley
You will find a large range of blocks in the Soul Sand Valley, but the most common blocks are the Soul Sand and Soul Soil. Other from those 2 blocks, you’ll see Netherrack, Gravel, Basalt, Blackstone, Bone Brick, and Glowstone.
Mobs in the Soul Sand Valley
Unlike the Warped Forest Biomes, there’s quite a variety of mobs in Soul Sand Valley Biomes. These Mobs are, Skeletons, Ghasts, Endermen, & Striders.
Make sure to wear a mask before entering the Basalt Delta Biome because the air is filled with Ashy Smoke. All jokes aside, the Basalt Delta Biome is incredibly dangerous with large amounts of lava and hostile mobs. Although the unclean air can’t kill you, it’s important to be geared up before entering this biome so you do not die from accidentally stepping in lava or mob attacks. Also, it might as well be mentioned that the terrain in this biome is quite jagged.
This Biome is the best biome to search for Magma Cream. If you don’t know already, Magma Cream comes from the dangerous mob called “Magma Cubes”. It is safe to say that Magma Cubes are far more dangerous versions of Slimes (in certain ways). Magma Cubes bounce just like a slime and multiply after being killed a couple times.
Lastly, you might also come across some Ruined Portals.
Vegetation in the Basalt Delta
There is no vegetation in the Basalt Delta Biome besides Mushrooms (Red with white spots) & Brown Mushrooms.
