Aerial shot of Devil's Castle

Devil's Castle is a rundown castle located in the snow region northwest of Whitehaven. The location features a few food chests, as well as multiple military chests containing iron swords, bows, chain armor, and arrows. If a player brings a button, they can gain access to a secret room containing 2 room_lows.

This is a great stop for players who have just completed Maze of the Tenth, due to the presence of furnaces that can be used to cook food. It also is rarely visited by bandits, meaning it's a relatively safe location. The only problem is the lack of water, which prevents long stays here.

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • There's a single water refill from the cauldron inside the dungeon. A button must be on the iron door that has a chiseled stone brick on top of it to get to it, however.
    • The brewing stand is also located inside the dungeon, along with the mil chest.
  • The furnace is located in the southern forge, next to the anvils.
  • There's no loot in the outer walls. Only the corner towers contain loot.
  • There are rarely players here, so it is a great place to camp for chain, the occasional iron armor, and good weapons.
  • The high zombie spawn rate is distributed over the entire location, which means the player will be encountering solo zombies which do not pose too much of a threat.
  • The closest water source is a few hundred blocks away. Make sure to have water bottles or a high water level when coming here.

Trivia

  • There's a group of signs inside the dungeon with the room chest. The name of the researcher mentioned in them, Edwin Jenner, is a reference to Edward Jenner, the scientist who created the world's first vaccine.
  • This location's name is a reference to the Devil's Castle on the Chernarus map in the game DayZ, the post-zombie-apocalypse game that MineZ is based upon.
  • The old version was a submission created by yourpengu, tannertasman, mizone10 & xxspicychickenxx, uploaded onto the MineZ Reddit.
  • For Halloween 2017, this location was rebuilt, changing the layout and loot almost completely. After Halloween was over, the build was modified and kept as a new build for Devil's Castle. It was back for Halloween 2018.
    • The castle has a more Nether fort style to it, along with the typical halloween decoration: jack-o-lantern dummies, giant mushrooms, and more lava.
    • The builders who rebuilt Heartless Mansion (ArcadeLegend, 66tee, and PIneFrost64) also rebuilt this location.
