Mithwood Forest mod adds a new biome, as well as a few mobs and some new armor and tool sets. Mithwood forests are magical woods growing over especially rich sources of mithril ore. They’re home to a wide variety of flora, including mithwood trees, which are notable for blue-tinted wood, magically bioluminescent leaves, and the occasional growth of golden apples.
The new mobs include mithwood guardians, zealous defenders of those woods, and a variety of big cats, unpredictable and mercurial in nature.
The new armor and tool sets are made from lapis, obsidian, emerald, prismarine, and of course mithril. Lapis items are exceptionally enchantable. Obsidian armor offers fire resistance. Emerald and prismarine are both slightly better than diamond, and prismarine armor imbues you with magical effects useful for underwater exploring. Finally, mithril is just wildly magical. Mithril axes can fell an entire tree in one chop, mithril pickaxes can mine an entire vein of ore with one swing, and each piece of mithril armor will imbue you with a different useful enchantment.
