    Ok, this is an interesting idea to make swamps more unique from other biomes.  But even if you're suggesting others to discuss drops and behaviors, you don't have a lot of ground support.  It's better that you think all this through before posting, rather than telling others to think things for you.

    I might think of something on this however, so have a vote anyways.

    I thought I was opening up the idea to discussion so others can participate. I would think the drop would be a great segue into another idea. Perhaps some new light source block, or a light source for your helmet. The mob is unique that there could be many ideas for what the drop could do. I would love to hear what others say.

    If this post doesn’t get much traction then that’s fine. That’s the name of the game. But I still want to be supportive of anyone who wants to add to the idea.  If I wrote the post wrong I’m sorry.

    If you switch the language to Shakespearean English blazes are called will-o-the-wisps.

    What if they have a 50-50 chance of leading you to some kind of cool loot/thing to aid you with a boss (like in Brave) vs. leading you to your death (like in the actual folklore). Maybe they can spawn in a light yellow but if you drink a specific potion or maybe offer it something like an orchid it will glow red or green to tell you if it will hurt or harm you.

    Will-o-wisps are also called fox-fires so really, they can look like glowing fox spirits too. Not just a floating ball. Either one would be very cool.

    Do you mind if I use this idea in one of my posts? Changing it a little bit.

    My idea for wisps:

    Spawning in swamp biomes, WOTWs would look like blue shulker pellets, and be randomly hostile. While the WOTWs hover around their spawn locations, approaching them will cause them to either attack, unleashing massive fire damage, or activate their enchanting powers. If the WOTWs choose to aid you, a held enchanted item will gain a random enchantment, while an enchanted item will lose all enchantments. If you aren’t holding an enchantable item, then the WOTWs will always attack.
