How to find and duplicate Allay in Minecraft 1.19.1 update

Allies in Minecraft 1.19.1 are cute, friendly mobs that players can find and keep as pets. They were added to the game with The Wild Update, along with many other features such as Deep Dark, Warden, Frogs, Mangrove Forests and more.

After the update was released, Mojang immediately started working on the incremental patch, where they added clone and dance features to Allay. However, to interact with these cute monsters, players must first find and save them.

When players enter a world, they can only find Allays in a specific location. These monsters only spawn in looter outposts and woodland mansions.

Allies are essentially prisoners of mobs of Illagers and must be rescued by players. Players must be prepared to face all Illager monsters present in the structure to find these monsters.

As a Woodland Mansion is hard to find and conquer, players should always find a looter outpost and try to rescue Allays from there. However, there may be cases where they do not appear in these structures.

Once players find Allays, they must give them any item so they can remember the player and follow him wherever they go. This will greatly help in escaping the structure.


Players can use the dance mechanic to their advantage if they want to duplicate Allays

Once players have safely rescued Allays, they can easily interact with them. One of the best features added to mobs in Minecraft 1.19.1 update is dancing and duplicating.

When Mojang introduced Allays through an animated video, they showed how the crowd would dance to a music block. Although this feature was not released in the main Wild update, it was successfully added in the incremental update, along with the duplicate feature.

When players play a music disc in a jukebox, all nearby Allays will start dancing to the tune. They will sway gracefully from side to side then whirl rapidly. While dancing, the mob will essentially enter duplicate mode.

If players want to duplicate an Allay, they must give an amethyst shard to the crowd as they dance.

Instead of grabbing the item as usual, the Allay will absorb the shard and duplicate it. Heart particles will appear above the mob, indicating the duplication is complete. The second mob that will appear will have none of the properties of the first and will be completely new.

There will be a five minute cooldown for both monsters before they can be duplicated again.

Allays are mainly used to pick up objects that have fallen on the ground. Once an Allay receives an item, they pick up the same items from the ground and give them to the player. If the player plays a note pad, the mob connects to it and drops any items picked up near the pad.
