Minecraft's new spin on, Minecraft Legends was announced during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase during the week of Summer Games Fest 2022, and this was one of the bigger surprises during the showcase.

While we've seen Mojang take Minecraft and spin it off in recent years, and this will be a brand new IP that players are stoked to play.  

Here's how to recruit the First in Minecraft Legends.

Minecraft Legends: How To Recruit The First

Minecraft Legends is the highly anticipated spin-off from the original IP, and it's going to release worldwide and on Xbox Game Pass on April 18, 2023.

However, with the new game, players are going to be able to recruit NPCs from around the world including the powerful mob type called the 'First.'

When you first encounter one of these, you're going to have to head back to the Well of Fate in order to snag another upgrade.

Once this is complete, you should be good to go! Be careful however, as these NPCs are rather powerful and could give you some problems.

Here's all the First NPCs in Minecraft Legends.

  • First of Stone – Throws boulders at targets
  • First of Diorite – Spawns random golems to fight in your army
  • First of Brick – Turns itself into a wall to protect against projectiles
  • First of Oak – Shoots explosive projectiles at targets
