The Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs update introduced two new cave biomes. One of them was the dripstone cave that is the largest cave-type biome. As players can guess, dripstone caves are full of dripstone and pointed dripstone blocks, making them the best place for farming these blocks.
Dripstone caves are scary, and only the brave dare to explore this place as a ton of hostile mobs spawn here. However, if the player is willing to explore this terrifying place, they can use seeds that generate worlds with unique dripstone caves.
