Ravagers can be found in pillager raids and are a strong, hostile mob in Minecraft. They can be difficult to deal with.
Without sufficient weapons and equipment, ravagers are notorious for biting and ramming at their opponents. There is another way to capture the angry beast.
The ravager can cause damage to some crops and foliage, but it is possible for players to put a fence around the creature and give it some permanence. Players can “keep” the raven contained, even though it is still hostile. To prevent it despawning, players can also apply a nametag to the Minecraft mob.
Minecraft: Capturing and containing the ravager
It can be dangerous and difficult to capture a ravager in Minecraft, but it is possible with careful planning.
A minecart is a great strategy to use when a village is being raided. It can both take out the ravager and place it in a place where it can be tagged.
Minecraft players must first create an enclosure to house the ravager. Because ravagers can’t jump over low blocks and are heavy-set, it is possible to create a stable using a gate or simply fence the mob in. As it may be necessary for the capture of a ravager to go wrong, make sure you have enough room to move around in the enclosure.
This is an optional step, but it’s very useful. Minecraft players can place minecarts at the end of the rail system that runs from the village to the enclosure by placing rails.
To send the minecart back into the enclosure, place a button or lever near the rail system. This will allow Minecraft players bait the ravager and ship it to its new location.
Players will want to grab their name tags if possible. The ravager won’t despawn if the player is too far away so it will be useful to have one. Players can keep the ravager occupied by applying one level of experience and a name to its name tag at the anvil.
Name-tagging a raven and keeping it in close proximity to a village will help prevent future raids at that location, unless the ravager is killed (though this could be fixed by Mojang in future).
You should also keep some armor and a shield nearby. A shield in Minecraft can be used to block ravagers for a few seconds. This will allow you to escape the mob’s range of attack.
The armor will absorb any damage that is done to the ravager in an attempt to capture them. This is a smart idea, considering how much damage they can inflict.
