    The skeleton monsters are faster from my experience. They don’t take breaks either.

    I never really understood how you get villagers to build stuff for you.

    Hi Ben! Glad you’re still active. I just want to point out the proper abbreviation of Japanese in your description should be JPN. Since J*P is a slur word, it doesn’t get abbreviated that way

    For destroying stuff, riding golems and having them attack blocks is the best option, I think the non gold golems mine less amount of blocks than gold golems who mine 11x11x11. For building blueprints, I think it is best to simply use the story characters since they are experienced in building the story blueprints.

    How long have you known of this sorcery!

    I didn’t expect that it would be this group to be the fastest 🤣 I thought it would be the golems

    Didnt knew theres a difference, i only figured out that the golems can carry more blocks at one time.. But now when i wanna blueprint something i should get more miners 😀

    Gotta build FAST!!!

    slimes and monsters in general build way faster than villagers from my experience. Villagers always need to do stuff and monster don’t.

    It never crossed my mind who’s faster 🤪 thank you Ben! Now I know hehe~✨

    do i need to find all the builds on that specific explorer island for me to be able to teleport to it on load?

    October 10, 2022 @ 6:19 pm

    This was actually so interesting to know. I’d never thought about the fact some may be faster than others, will definitely be putting this into practice. Thank you!

    Thank you Ben for the video.

    BenXc, how did you control who built and destroyed the block? They wer just standing there. How?

  22. TruenoPacoSelfuse
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:22 pm

    What a coincidence, I’m building a valley. Thanks for your useful experiment.
    I have a question, is there any trick to make the villagers build things at the bottom-left corner of the Isle of Awakening? Thanks.

  23. thepokekid01
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:24 pm

    Wow! I didn’t even know they built at different rates. I would guess Minors might be good at destroying stuff, but who knew they could be useful for such great labor as well! (I had to find out some way to cram that bad joke in there) Very cool attention to detail though on the developer part.

    What about the Monster Hands ?

    Thanks for doing this. I always thought that the hand monsters were good for this. Good to know humans are worth using.

    So what you’re saying is, I should get myself a team of 50 miners for larger projects. Thanks for the video, I’ll be sure to put this information to use.

    I thought the golem would be the fastest destroyers

    Oh wow an actual use for miners. I even tried to set up a fallout vault style town in a sunny sands based island, they still wouldn’t mine the parts I left untouched.

    For all those years I thought the mines were useless villagers. You change my world.

    How did you control who built what?

  34. Commissar ViperBroz
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:35 pm

    of course…Miners is the fastest builder they had Jojo body

  35. mattshuey1

    My villagers have a habit of stopping a build when it is in the high 90% range, even when there are blocks for them in a nearby chest. I always end up having to complete the blueprint myself.

  36. Ian Griffin
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:35 pm

    I always figured the golems would be the best at this

    Miners did take a pretty long break though for both categories. They broke stuff down pretty fast but then slacked off which allowed the other two human groups to almost catch up. Iridescent Island huh? Nice.

    October 10, 2022 @ 6:40 pm

    Wait a tick… That last tip… Does that fast travel point spawn if you have already seen that specific build, or does it only spawn once *all* of that island’s Builds have been found?

    (And don’t split hairs. I *KNOW* that finding one in the field spawns a fast travel point. I am asking from the prospective of finding all the builds. Going to an island, seeing the travel point, then immediately returning is a lot faster than hunting down the build, only for it to be a repeat.)

    I watch my guys build and the fastest by far are the soldier skeletons.

  40. Kantera1bd
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:42 pm

    I’m using lots of sheslimes for fast building, they don’t need breaks to eat like golems and sleep at night. Not sure if they really faster than the miners tho.

    Golems : We have too Big hands
    Villagers : We’re medium.
    Merchants : We lazy
    Miners : GOTSSA GOI FAZT

    EDIT : Thanks for the likes !

    way to go miners/toughies, how do other monsters or villagers compare? i.e knights vs miners or slimes vs Golems for example?

  43. Ian Griffin
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:50 pm

    i suppose it would since for the miner s to be # 1, it’s basically there job to break stuff.

  44. Ziizoe
    October 10, 2022 @ 6:51 pm

    huh, so miners do have a use and aren’t just pointless characters who do nothing, good to know.

    are hammerhoods faster than golems?
