Dripstone Caves are one of the new underground biomes introduced in Minecraft 1.18: Caves & Cliffs Part 2. Featuring large clusters of Dripstone and with spiky Dripstone hanging like stalactites and rising like stalagmites, Dripstone Caves have enlivened the underground adding much more variety.
But where do you find them in Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs Part 2. Fortunately, Dripstone Caves are incredibly common. They spawn most frequently below the Y 0 level in small clusters.
Summing up, we want to say the following. To find a lot of diamonds, you need to go to Y=59 and that’s not a problem for most players. But since there are now terrible monsters in the depths, it will be more difficult for you to mine a valuable resource.
That’s all you need to know about the best level for diamond mining and the difficulties that await you in the deep mines.

Lapis is used to dye everything blue, including beds, glass, and banners. You can also craft Lapis Lazuli to make blue cement powder or a solid blue block. But ore is more vital for enchanting items on the enchanted table. You need to level up high enough and have enough Lapis Lazuli to upgrade your weapons or armor on the Enchanted Table. The higher your level, the better the upgrade will be.
The height of the world has been changed from 256 to 320. This change has allowed the mountains to reach heights never seen before. Emeralds will start generating at Y256 and will be abundant at Y224 provided there are landmasses that have been generated at that elevation. Also, emeralds will only spawn in mountain biomes. From here the Emerald generation begins to decline until Level Y -16 where there will be a rare or no Emerald generation. This is the new Emerald Ore distribution in Minecraft 1.18.

Secondly, with the version of Minecraft 1.19, new locations and a new mod The Warden appeared in the underground. Unlike other enemy mobs, this mob is powerful and does not focus on vision but on hearing. The Keeper spawns below zero height at or near new locations. We didn’t exaggerate when we said he was a powerful enemy. If you are unarmored or in iron armor and a sword, you will instantly die at the hands of this mob. The Keeper will also hear you if you mine blocks. You can dig blocks without knowing that he is already waiting for you behind the wall.
Minecraft has gotten a bit more difficult in the latest versions, and now you won’t be able to pass to level Y=-59 at the first opportunity. You will have to dig above zero to get the first diamonds. And you can go down only after you get good armor and equipment.
