Finding the easiest Minecraft seeds for 2018 has proven difficult, but we've done it. We've managed to collect the best seeds you can use to get a head start.
Whether you're looking for a village by spawn, lots of free loot or something else entirely, the seeds below should have you covered.
Hopefully, you can find something below that you can use for your next Minecraft survival game.
Minecraft seeds are random codes which are used by Minecraft's algorithm to create a totally unique world from scratch. Having an interesting seed can totally transform a Minecraft player's gaming experience by giving them more amazing places to explore, or more challenges to overcome.
Let's start off with this incredible woodland mansion and village seed. There's not much at the spawn point, but within a minute's walk, you'll find a woodland mansion and a village.
The coordinates for the woodland mansion are 1750, 400. There are two secret rooms in this mansion with treasure chests inside.
Once you've explored the woodland mansion, make sure to check out the village nearby. The coordinates for the village are 1815, 580.
There's not really much else near the spawn point worth mentioning, but the woodland mansion should provide you with enough loot to give you a big head start.
The seed above as pretty good, but this next seed one-ups it. Firstly, you'll find a woodland mansion very close to spawn with this seed. The exact coordinates are 550 500.
Once you've had a look at the woodland mansion, make sure to visit the desert temple and the desert village - both are very close to each other. You will find the village at -215 1220 and the desert temple is right next to it.
The desert temple has an assortment of loot inside spread across a total of four different chests.
If you'd like a seed that lets you quickly explore an ocean monument, this seed will be perfect. The ocean monument in this seed is literally right next to spawn.
The only trouble with this seed is that you start on a very small island. Gathering the gear to prepare yourself for the Guardians and Elder Guardian will prove to be quite difficult, but at least you don't have to spend hours looking for an ocean monument when you finally do have enough armor and weapons.
Most desert temples spawn with a variety of armor, weapons, food, and miscellaneous items, but the desert temple in this seed has three enchanted books.
You can find the desert temple at 48. 70. 717 - it's slightly submerged in the sand, so make sure to keep an eye out for it. The enchanted books found in this temple are Flame, Fire Protection I and Fire Aspect II.
Finding igloos can be hard enough, but finding one that actually has loot in it is even harder. Thankfully, this seed brings the igloo right to you. The igloo in this seed isn't right at spawn, but it's relatively close. Just go to -234, 66, -231.
You'll find a golden apple and a stone hatchet in this igloo. Not the best loot by any means, but it's still interesting to explore an igloo with a secret loot room.
There's quite a lot going on in this seed, but the most noticeable things are right at spawn. You'll see a small village as soon as you load this seed. An underground mine shaft is nearby that contains some good loot.
You can find a chest at 653, 41, 235. Inside the chest, you'll get a golden apple, 6 redstone, 2 gold ingots, and 2 iron ingots. Not the best loot, but this seed could easily shave 10 minutes off of your play time by giving you some iron and a place to spend the first night.
This seed is for the latest Minecraft version, 1.13. The 1.13 update essentially adds a selection of marine animals and new water-themed items. In this seed, you'll spawn on a beach. There is a family of turtles on the beach, which are new to 1.13.
There's also a village right next to the spawn area and just behind the village, you'll see a woodland mansion.
The next seed we have to share will bring you to a blacksmith and a desert temple. The blacksmith will be found within a savanna village located near the spawn point. The exact coordinates are -168, 345.
Once you've found the village and looted the blacksmith's chest, you can find a desert temple at -365, 300.
Jungle temples seem to be one of the rarest randomly generated structures in Minecraft. We're not if it's because they're hard to notice in amongst the overgrown jungle trees, or whether they really do just spawn less often.
Either way, this particular seed has two jungle temples that are close to spawn and easy to locate. The first jungle temple can be found at -440, 230 and the other is located at 150, 120.
The final seed we have to share in this list includes a total of three villages very close to spawn. You'll also find some incredible gigantic hills that are certainly quite the sight.
The first village is the smallest and can be found as soon as you spawn into the seed. The next villages are extremely close to each other - the first can be found at -135, -314 and the other can be found at -136, -665.
That wraps up our look at the easiest Minecraft seeds in 2018. Thanks for taking the time to view our seeds list. Have you tried any seeds on this list yet?
