Is Vanilla Minecraft a walk in the park for you? Make the vanilla monsters significantly stronger and harder to deal with by installing the Rough Mobs Mod created by Lellson.
What the Mod is About?
The mod is designed to make hostile vanilla mobs harder to deal with by changing a few aspects of how they spawn. With the mod installed, mobs will randomly spawn with n enchanted armor and weapons, ride a mount, have a small chance of spawning bosses, and so much more. Boss mobs like the Wither have double the HP and can even knock attackers away and summon minions.
Should You Install it?
For those players who find the vanilla game less challenging, installing this mod will surely make every Minecraft night a challenging and interesting night. We highly recommend this mod for players who wish to experience more challenging Minecraft gameplay.
