Hexxit Wiki

The Better Dungeons is a mod which adds new dungeons, 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. In later versions it is called Chocolate Quest and has a smaller list of new mobs. This wiki mostly focuses on the 1.6.4 version of the mod.

In May 2016, a 1.9 version of the mod was planned but unfortunately Chocolatin disappeared from the internet shortly after this post that explained the version in-depth. Chocolatin has not been seen since, meaning Better Dungeons/Chocolate Quest is essentially a dead mod.

However there is a passionate group of developers who have been recreating Chocolate Quest for 1.12+ and they have been working on it for 2+ years and are into the Beta Stage of development. The mod does have a lot of changes from Better Dungeons/Chocolate Quest but it's because of the developer's vision for the mod that they think is right.

You can find it here.


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


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

Mob Types[]

  • Defender - Armed with a shield, this mob type will deflect arrows and block attacks.
  • Healer - Armed with a Heal Staff, this mob will heal injured mobs in a group.
  • Grenadier - Armed with Essence grenades, this mob will attack by throwing grenades at the player.
  • Archer - Armed with a bow, this mob will use ranged attacks and sneak around corners.
  • Gunner - Armed with a revolver, this mob type will use ranged attacks and sneak around corners.

Default Mob[]

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.



Dungeons have lots of chests containing loot, making them very rewarding to clear.
