After defeating the enderdragon, in your world the skulk starts to spread quicker. Eventually it will reach the surface of your world. It will ravage all that it goes through and stop mobs from spawning in skulk- infested areas. If you feel brave enough, you can dig down the vein of skulk into the deep dark. Guarded by the Warden, the skulk heart is the source of the infection. Destroy it to get 2-5 Skulkium essence, a new material and stop the spreading.
However, if you choose not to cleanse the land taken over, it will start spawning skulk phantasms. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from spider like monstrosities to flying winged creatures. With 20-80 health these drop 1 skulkium essence each.
Combine 8 skulkium essence with an amethyst to create a "skulkium shard". In an anvil you can combine this with any item to fully repair it and give it a temporary damage and efficiency boost. Alternatively, you can combine it with an elytra in a smithing table to create a "skulk cape". this grants invisibility when crouching, and hides armour. One final use is that when combined with 8 arrows you can create skulk arrows, which seek targets, deal 2x damage and ignores armour, unless it has projectile protection.
