Minecraft is an extremely popular game that has a large player base thanks to the content in the game. Not only that but the game also supports mods as well which keeps things fresh and interesting. To load these mods, however, you need a mod loader. Luckily there are tons of them available as well. That is why we will take a look at the top 25 best Fabric mods for Minecraft.
Fabric is a mod loader that is quite lightweight and is a competitor to Forge (another popular loader.) Both of these loaders have their own unique mods that add an extra twist to the game. If you want to find some good mods, let’s dive right in and take a look at the top 25 best Fabric mods for Minecraft.
Best Fabric Mods for Minecraft
There are tons of mods apart from the mentioned 25 in this list. After trying out tons of mods, I found these to be the best, most useful, and fun out of the rest. Also, these mods aren’t ranked in any order. Whichever you prefer depends on your preference and what type of mods you like to use.
If your favorite mod didn’t make the list, let us know about it in the comments below and we’ll add it! With that said, let’s start with the list.
The Visual Workbench mod adds an extra element to your game. It will permanently show the items that you used on top of the bench to provide an extra aesthetic. Plus, your items will remain in the workbench until you either take them out or destroy the bench. The displayed items on top are a nice feature that is surprisingly convenient despite not seeming like it.
Have you ever wondered why the villages in Minecraft didn’t have any guards other than the golems? Well, this mod will solve that issue for you! It adds various new villagers to each village that will have random equipment like swords, shields, and armor. The best part is that they will actively help you defend the village in case of a raid or other hostile mobs. Plus, sometimes, they also have crossbows.
On top of that, if you have the Hero of the Village Effect, you can talk to these guards and give them high-level equipment such as diamond swords and armor. That’s not all, though, you can even get a guard to follow you around in your adventures. If you cannot find a guard in a village, worry not because you can give any villager a sword or crossbow to turn them into a guard.
The End in Minecraft can be quite jarring and dull in most cases. This is especially true after the game updated the Nether but didn’t add anything to The End. That is where this mod comes into play. The Better End mod adds more than 24 new biomes to The End alongside 6 new mobs as well. There are tons of new blocks like wood and stone being added to The End.
Plus, you’ll notice that there are new weapons, armor, food, and new mechanics as well such as more Anvil recipes and Infusion Rituals just to name a few. If you want to spice up The End, this mod will certainly help you out a lot.
Before we talk about this mod, I’d like to state that this is a work in progress and it will eventually add new features. With that said, this mod reworks various biomes in the game and adds new animals, foliage, and more to each biome. At the time of writing, the Biome Makeover mod has reworked four biomes with many more on the way.
This mod will certainly make your boring biomes have a unique look and feel to them to make each of them memorable. The best part about this is that they completely reworked the Woodland Mansion which is a huge deal.
Awesome Dungeons (Nether Edition)
Minecraft got a Nether update that added a bunch of content when you visit the Nether. However, the dungeons there can still feel like they are lacking something. Worry not because this mod will change that. It adds new buildings with mobs like Piglins and Blaze in them. This allows the player to collect Blaze Rods in an alternate way.
This is a simple mod that adds more blocks in the game so that you can decorate your buildings. It adds new blocks like a Brazier, Bonfire, Wooden Palisades, Stone Pillar, and a Big Chain just to name a few. The best part is that this mod even has a follow-up mod that adds various winter-themed decorative blocks.
You cannot go wrong with having more blocks to spice up your already beautiful structures. Plus, some of these blocks can be interacted with so not all of them are just for show.
This mod does exactly what the official “The Wild” update did for Minecraft. It adds new biomes and makes various changes to the already present ones. However, I feel like this mod does a better job than the official update as it makes the biomes more unique and exciting.
It not only adds new mobs and animals to the game but also introduces various new structures that you can use and explore. It will certainly spice up your Minecraft world if you decide to give it a go.
Awesome Dungeons (End Edition)
Just like the Awesome Dungeons (Nether Edition), this mod is by the same developer and it introduces a bunch of awesome dungeons for The End – excuse me for the pun. It adds new dungeons such as the Castle Evoker, Palace, Pyramid, Hard Castle, and Pill. Each of these dungeons has various mobs and challenges that you must overcome to conquer it.
The best part is that there are tons of resources and rare loot in each of these dungeons so they are definitely worth exploring if you are in The End.
Have you ever wanted to keep those pesky crows away from your crops while farming? Well, this mod does just that! It allows you to craft a scarecrow and place it on your fields to have a better farming experience and make it seem more authentic. The best part about this is that it isn’t only to help you farm. The scarecrow will make any hostile mobs in an 8-block radius run away.
The BetterSleeping Revived mod is a successor to the BetterSleeping mod that was abandoned a while back. This mod allows players to regenerate health for every 20 seconds that they sleep. However, it also gives various debuffs such as a mining debuff and slower weather.
This is done to emulate how a person feels after waking up. You’ll be slower and will take some time to get back to normal. If you wish to add some realism and an extra challenge to your game, then this mod is perfect for you.
The Blossom mod allows the oak trees to bear fruit. Before you had to break tree leaves to collect apples but with this mod, the apples will slowly grow on the tree. You can harvest them once they have fully grown without breaking the leaves. Plus, the bees will pollinate the leaves to speed up the growth.
While Minecraft has a good inventory and shop system, this mod introduces currency to the game. It allows players to trade using Bronze, Silver, and Gold coins. After adding this mod, you’ll notice that you have a purse inside of your inventory that carries all of these coins. You can collect coins by opening chests, killing mobs, or trading with various villagers.
The best part is that you can even use this mod online due to the shop system that it has. Other players can put their items for sale for whatever coins they determine the worth is.
Biome Particle Weather
Minecraft has all types of weather in different biomes. This mod enhances those effects to give them a realistic touch. The blizzards and rainstorms are much heavier and reduce your vision while the sunny weather will be clear so you can see far away. If you’re looking for a weather mod, this one is just for you!
Plus, it also adds various effects like the tumbleweed in deserts to enhance the atmosphere as well.
Portals are used to travel to the Nether and back. While the normal portals have a mysterious purple color to them, this mod makes them much more immersive. You will see the other side as you would expect from portals. Seeing through the portal makes it easier for you to know what is happening on the other side.
This mod isn’t just for show, however, you can instantly travel between dimensions without any loading screens. However, you might need a beefy hardware for that otherwise your game might lag a lot while teleporting.
Friends and Foes
This is a simple mod that brings a lot to the table. For starters, it adds a lot of new mobs that were cut from the final game. Some of these mobs are the ones that didn’t win the mob vote done by Mojang. If you wanted to see the copper golem or other mobs that didn’t make it to the final version of the game, this mod will help you out a lot.
It also adds new villagers as well who behave in a different manner according to their profession.
If you are a fan of RPG games, this mod will be one of your favorites. It introduces various classes to Minecraft that you can choose before starting your adventure. Each class has different perks, weaknesses, and strengths. If you count the human class, then there are a total of 10 classes (or Origins as the developer calls them).
This adds a fun twist to the game as you now have the ability to choose your favorite origin and have an easier time at what that class excels at. Plus, it also fulfills your RPG needs, so there’s that.
Speaking of role-playing and RPG elements in Minecraft, this mod allows you to make it a full-out RPG. You can have relationships with various villagers according to how you treat them. Plus, you can even find your potential spouse if you play your cards correctly. One thing you’ll notice is that all villagers are replaced by humans that you can interact with. Plus, you can even start a family with them if you find your spouse.
That’s not all though. You can even increase your reputation in a certain village and become its ruler. The villagers will obey your commands and you will be the king of that area.
Fish of Thieves
If you’ve played Sea of Thieves, you’ll be quite familiar with this mod. It essentially adds various sea life from that game in Minecraft. You will find tons of new fish in the ocean that you can either interact with or kill for meat. If you are looking to add more life to the oceans in Minecraft, then this mod is a great start as it doesn’t drastically change the game.
I agree that Minecraft does not have enough arrow variety or rarity. Like swords, you can nowget arrows that are made of diamond, netherite, iron, and other materials. This gives you more to think about since you can now craft diamond arrows that have higher damage and will still deal more damage even if you fire them from a long distance.
That’s not all though. This mod also adds new arrow types such as slime arrows that will bounce off walls. This allows you to hit targets from an angle. Plus, there are tons of other arrow types as well so make sure to check out this awesome mod!
Not Enough Animations
I’ve heard most people say that there aren’t enough animations in Minecraft. If you have played the game for a long time, you’ll start to get tired of the same old animations. However, this mod adds some much-needed new animations for your characters.
For example, if you are holding a map, your character will visibly hold it now in the third person. Plus, there are tons of subtle animations as well that changes the game when you look at it from the third-person perspective.
Fans of the feudal era will be pleased to know that this is a special mod that caters to your needs. I agree that the weapons of that era were great and it would be great if more games had them. This mod allows you to bring them to life in Minecraft. From maces, axes, long swords, and round shields, you have all the great and iconic feudal era weapons in this mod.
End Portal Recipe
Finding the End Portal is quite challenging and requires you to gather tons of resources. If you do not wish to go through all that, you can simply download and install this mod to help you out a lot.
This mod allows you to create an End Portal wherever you want just by using minimal items. This means that you do not have to search for the portal anymore and you can make it near your base to make it easier to travel between dimensions just like the Nether.
This mod is ideal for all the content creators out there. Plus, if you wish to take a look at your lovely creations, you can use this mod to do so. It essentially gives you a spectator view by pressing X. You can phase your camera through walls and other blocks to see what is on the other side or get a better view. This mod has tons of uses and it depends on what you want to use it for.
However, be extremely careful since your body can still be attacked by mobs. To leave the FreeCam view, you can press the X key again and you’ll return to your original position.
If you have the Minecraft Bedrock Edition, you’ll already have this feature in your game. However, if you have the Java Edition, you’ll notice that the mannequins are missing from your game. Worry not because with this mod, you’ll have the mannequins in your Java version without any issues.
If you do not know what they do, mannequins essentially serve two purposes. The first one is to display your armor and weapons to make it easy to customize them. Secondly, they can be used as great target dummies. You can set them up and use your arrows to hit them from a distance to see how good of a shot you are.
Plus, you do not have to worry about breaking the mannequins since they are indestructible. However, if you want to remove or replace it, hold down the shift button, and then you’ll be able to remove it.
This mod adds a hydration meter on top of your hunger meter in the game. If you want to give yourself an extra challenge, this is the mod to go for! It can add an extra twist to the game since you have a whole new mechanic to consider and take care of. If you are in the Nether or want to go to The End, you will need to make sure that you are stocked up on water as well.
Plus, it will make you consider bringing water along with you when you are out exploring the Overworld. However, things aren’t always as simple as they seem. You cannot drink just any water that you want. You’ll have to purify salt water to ensure that it is safe to drink.
