The Better Dungeons is a mod which adds new dungeons and mobs, bosses, and items to Hexxit. Conquering one of these dungeons is very rewarding as they hold chests filled with loot. However, there are monsters and traps in these dungeons, making them a challenge to complete. Most of the dungeons contain a boss, a significantly stronger mob within the dungeon which drops rare items.


There are 12 types of dungeons in the mod. Two of them are only available in Creative mode.

Mobs Edit

Dungeons contain hostile mobs which will attack the player. Type of mobs encountered will depend on the dungeon's distance from the player's initial spawnpoint.

  • Healer - Armed with a Heal Staff, this mob will heal injured mobs in a group.

Dungeons set to use the default mob in their configuration file will have a different mob guarding it depending on distance from spawn. The guard mob and the boss mob changes each 1000 blocks.

Any dungeon spawned north of -8000 will have Armored Endermen as the mob type. The Armored Enderman has no boss.
