Grimoire of Gaia has to be among the most massive content focused mods available for Minecraft because it adds an insane amount of new content and features into the game. The mod has been out for almost two years now and, over these two years, it’s received tons upon tons of updates that have kept it up to date and enjoyable for all the players who use it. The goal of this mod is to make Minecraft a tad bit more challenging for players in the later stages of the game and, as far as we can tell, the mod definitely succeeds in doing so.
Before we go into any of Grimoire of Gaia’s specifics, we want to highlight that this mod isn’t really for new players because the content that it features has been designed for the sole purpose of increasing the game’s difficulty. Onto the key details, the Grimoire of Gaia makes traditional in-game ores a lot harder to acquire by changing their recipes and, alongside this, it also modifies how some of the items work in the game. The mod also features a variety of different blocks that you might not see immediately after applying this mod but, after playing the game for a bit, you’ll realize that they have quite an impact on the game’s difficulty.
The biggest highlights of the Grimoire of Gaia are definitely the mobs that it brings to the table. The mod features over 50 different mobs and each one of these mobs has its own characteristics stats. Some mobs are passive, some are aggressive, some are of the arthropod type, and some are of the undead type, and some only surface during the night whereas other only exist during the day. All things considered, Grimoire of Gaia is a mod that we definitely recommend trying out if you want to increase Minecraft’s difficulty.
