Bridges and Stairways

Aug 7, 2018
Bridges and Stairways
  • The Bridges and Stairways consist of minor structures that connect the different areas and locations in the MineZ world, mainly the two staircases and multiple bridges found in the plateaus up north and the singular Continental Bridge that connects Romero and Carmi along Birch Tree's island found in between.

    It is a large and ruined stone brick bridge that connects the towns Romero and Carmi ogether, making it a good way to go from the South Eastern part of the map to the Middle-South part of the map. The brige is also condecorated with lapis lazuli and some emerald blocks; water can also be seen flowing inside the bridge itself.
    It is not recommended to jump down into the water even when running away from danger as you'd have to swim back to the middle island, Romero or Carmi.

    Travel Advisory/Warnings (top)

    • Going to Birch Tree is not worth the trip as it contains a single food chest and it may not even spawn. If you do get there, you might as well swim up to St. Roseluck Island, which is located to the north from there.

    These small wooden bridges connect the different plateaus in the canyons. They are extremely useful when traversing this area and because of this they're very popular, mostly amongst groups of bandits. There are a total of 9 bridges.
    They do not contain any holes but you can easily fall to your death when fighting against other players on them.

    Trivia(top)

    • North of the Southern Stairway on the plateau's wall there's the Dragon Wall Carving. It is a small, animated stone brick dragon. It spews "fire" out of its mouth and blinks. Getting too close to it will make it growl like an Ender Dragon.
      • Around 2013, the dragon used to have gold blocks instead of red stained clay and it wasn't animated.
    • Aside from the Spooky Wagon tree, there used to be another tree located under the 'Long Bridge'. Unlike Spooky Wagon, it had some flowers around it.
    • The plateau bridges have received at least 2 small changes through the years.
      • The first was the holes in them being "patched" to make walking on them less dangerous. This, in the end, made fighting on them a bit easier and have less casualties.
      • The second change was adding spruce wood planks to some of them. These are the three out of four bridges that connect to Al Hasa's plateau. The bridge near Fort Kharj does not have spruce wood planks.
    • Wizard's Pass is considered another passageway as all of the others mentioned on this page. It has its own page due to it's unique name, purpose an style when compared to the bridges and stairways.
    • The Southern Stairway used to be made out of stone brick and, at some point, some stone slabs. It went straight down into the bottom of the canyons instead of being built into the walls of the canyon.
    • A large figure resembling a penguin with an open orange beak and bloodshot eyes performing what seems to be a 'T-Pose' surrounded by snow is often seen in and around the canyons and even other locations in Christmas season. It's name is Waddles and multiple versions of it have been spotted on Christmas. Its true purpose is unknown besides looking comically disturbing to many.
