Inside The Library of Axis Mundi.

The Library of Axis Mundi is a massive underground location boasting expansive knowledge about the MineZ world. It was added with the Secret Project Update and it holds some very special loot. In order to access the library the Dusk Fragment from Shrine of the Dusk, the Dawn Fragment from Path of Light and the Rod of Reclamation from Overgrown Tomb have to be obtained in advance. The Library of Axis Mundi is generally regarded as the current end-game location of MineZ.

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • After throwing the three keys into the three hoppers, the door to Axis Mundi will open and the entrance will only stay open for 30 seconds.
  • Upon opening the Library of Axis Mundi the Emerald Shard will spawn in the hand of the corpse outside the exit door. This will disappear upon reboot, so make sure you pick it up as soon as you enter. Note that there is no button on the other side of the door so you will need a friend to let you back into the Library.
  • To obtain the Eclipsed Seal you must step on the emerald block by the dispenser on the west side of the Library.
  • Unless you have the three keys, it will be a wasted trip here, as all the loot spawns inside the Library.
    • Note that the Dusk Fragment must be exalted by completing Path of Light and the Dawn Fragment must also be exalted by completing Overgrown Tomb.
  • This location contains no food, so be sure to bring enough.
  • While there are water fountains inside, you cannot refill your water inside the library. Make sure to bring plenty of water bottles.
    • You can stay as long as you want inside the library, as long as you have food and water.
    • On average you will most likely obtain one Sharpness V or Smite V book per water bottle.
  • Natural zombie spawns are rare inside, but be careful of trapped chests.
  • To exit, go through a hole in the bookshelves in the north side of the ground floor, and press a stone button on the wall to open the exit door. Drop down onto carpet-covered slime blocks, then follow the tunnel to the surface.
  • Whenever players enter the Library of Axis Mundi they typically bring large groups of up to twenty players on average. Be wary of looting the Library of Axis Mundi on public servers if you know that another group has recently visited.
  • Players you encounter here will typically be non-aggressive, but be careful of bandits that may be camping the exit of the location.


  • Upon the release of the Tome Update, there was a bug where you could use the Seal of Space to teleport inside the Library of Axis Mundi without needing any of the keys. This is why the button door was added to the exit of the Library.
  • The Library of Axis Mundi is the only place to get books enchanted with Smite and Sharpness. These essentially serve as swords without a durability bar, and cannot be used to enchant other weapons with Sharpness or Smite.
  • The Secret Project iteration of this location required at least 7 players to step on pressure plates simultaneously for the Eclipsed Seal.
  • The Library of Axis Mundi was closed for an extensive period of time between the Pre-Origins Update and the Origins Update.
  • This location was widely considered the "lore endgame" by players before the release of Origins.
  • Axis Mundi is believed to be the world center or the connection between Heaven and Earth in certain beliefs and philosophies, which ties into the Lore of MineZ where Axis Mundi served as the connection between the human world and Hestril's domain. It can also be found in cultures with technically advanced "urban centers".
  • The strange symbols on the walls in the library correspond to the runic alphabet.
  • You can see the ruins of Axis Mundi on the surface, and look down a glass skylight into the library.
