Canyon is one of two maps added in the 10/6/13 update. It is based off of a desert scene.
The map has 2 coal and iron mines, 1 lapis, redstone, gold and emerald mines and 2 boss portals.
Markers on the map detail the location of the mines (see the appropriate icon), enderfurnace (furnace), Nexus (Colored Star) and boss arenas (wither head).
- Iceman can be very useful in mid, but keep in mind: Only in mid.
- Strategy 2
- Strategy 3
- Acrobat is very favourable on this map, because you are immune to fall damage. Make sure to bring some blocks, so you can get yourself out of the canyon.
- Breaking the side of mid can create a waterfall for easy access into and out of the canyon.
- There's only one entrance to the Nexus, Immobilizer and Mercenary are great in defending against rushes.
