Let's say you want to make a starter mine shaft but not do it alone or clear a whole forest but don't have the patience, then you can just summon brand new minions to do that, there are a few ways to do that, first is to use /summon LightMinion or /summon DarkMinion, or use the spawn eggs, or make the new staffs (or take them from the creative menu, or give yourself one with commands), but if you're in survival minecraft then you can craft the new staffs, (with a lot of materials) first, you'll need to craft 1 staff by combining 3 sticks in a vertical line (Staff do 1 attack damage and have an attack speed of 3), and then you'll need to surround the staff with 8 diamonds to make a diamond staff (Diamond Staffs do 4 attack damage and have an attack speed of 2), next you'll need to find a Light mansion (Found in Warm Ocean Biomes) or a Dark Mansion (Found in Cold Ocean Biomes) and find the new mob (The Light King or The Dark King found only in their mansions) and kill them for a Light Block or a Dark Block (The Light block can give off 20 blocks worth of Light in x,y and z),(The Dark block will drain all Light sources within 20 blocks x,y and z to a light level of 0, causing more mobs to spawn, great for griefing. Even light sources within the radius of the Dark block WILL NOT give off light), combine the diamond staff with the Light block or the Dark block will give you either the Light Staff or the Dark Staff, right click with the
Light Staff: You'll summon 3 Light minions and right click a tree for them to remove the whole forest, or click a block while looking downwards and they will make a huge 5*5 hole all the way down to bedrock, and they'll also make stairs all the way down too. Right click the Light Minions to collect their resources, or Left click them to unsummon them and put them back inside your Light staff to use for later.
Dark Staff: You'll summon 3 Dark minion and right click while looking upwards and they'll summon 5 lightning bolts within 7 blocks in 7 random places, and right click a mob and they'll attack all the mobs of their kind for you.
The Light and Dark minions all have health and a cooldown, heres how it works:
Health: All monsters will either attack you or your minion, The Light minion has 20 HP while The Dark minion has 30 HP
Cooldown: In your hotbar, where your staffs are is a bar which looks like a durability bar, depending on how much effort you make the minions do the more the durability bar goes down, when it hits black, then you need to let it recharge by not using your staff for awhile and letting the minions rest.
Both the Light and Dark minions will always follow you unless you put them back into the staff, plus the staffs recharge faster if the minions are inside .
