The Ominous Woods biome is a dark, heavily wooded biome with scattered pools of dark purple water. Umbran Trees grow here, along with a variety of other vegetation. The fog significantly decreases visibility.
Grass is found on the ground, mixed with mushrooms and Dead Leaves. The Bramble thorns found here can harm the player, and the Wither Roses apply the Wither effect when a player walks through it. Both the Bramble thorns and Wither Roses sap hunger, as well. Dead trees and willows can also be found here.
Mobs & NPCsEdit
Villages do not spawn here, nor do common passive mobs, but Swamp Huts can be found. Evokers spawn naturally.
This is one of the most difficult biomes to survive in for beginners, but if you're okay with everything trying to kill you, it's quite a nice place to live. There is very little to eat, and both the Thorns and Wither Roses will sap hunger and health if the player is careless. Do note that the farther you go into these woods, the more fog there is and the harder it is to see.
Prior to the 1.8 version of BoP, Dark Wood was used instead of Umbran Wood, which has a slightly different texture. Cave Spiders, hostile wolves, and Endermen were the only mobs that spawn in this biome. Thick Ominous Woods was a sub-biome to this biome. It contained Thick Dark Trees which were much taller, that is more common there than in the normal Ominous Woods. In more recent updates for BOP before 1.8, a thick fog was added. In 1.13.2, Bramble generates in the biome, and in 1.14.4, Wither Roses replaced the Deathbloom flower.
