    Wow, they need to remove the jumpscare
    at 6:26 that scared me at first, so i was at my new base preping for the
    battle underwater, then i heard these weird “Drilling” noises, i finally
    figured out it was the guardians, i was boating around one day trying to
    find one, not even 1500 blocks from my house is a monument, so iwas just
    chillin ya know, boating around, the drilling sounds were louder and
    louder, i saw what was making those sou— *HOLY FUCKING SHIT WAS WAS THAT
    OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCKING FUCKER FUCK!* that image popped up and im not
    even joking, i had to pause the game, get new pants and calm down, after
    that the fatigue got REALLY annoying and no longer scary.

    more clear

    I was mining around at lvl 13 and started to hear a monster i haven’t heard
    before in the normal world (not nether or somehting) and it made a sound
    like a ghast.. the krrreww sound 😀 As I got deeper the sound got harder,
    but I can’t really find the mob, I’m not really looking forward to get
    owned in 3 seconds if it’s some kind of boss.. so any1 got an idea what it

    I go in no armor. Got no potions or no good sord. Not instant deth…liar.
    Didn’t have to kill all elder guardians.
    I fel smart.
    I dug tunnel to one of pillars from island.
    Brought a cow to pillar.
    Dug up pillar.
    Built tunnel grid all throughout the place.
    Got jumpscared a few times.
    I didn’t really get anything of value though :(

    I didn’t know the monument was randomly generated.
    The first chamber I walked into had the gold blocks.
    Guess I was just lucky.

    if ocean monument is sky temple with diamond sword drop from boss it would
    be good idea or the kingdom with over 90 houses and 40 towers and 3 castle
    with 1 bed in each house and vampire temple should be cool drops diamond
    sword with any enchantment
