Stranded is a special SkyBlock Gamemode, in which the player cannot leave their Private Island. Because of the inability to leave your island you have to utilize farms, light mechanics and collections more. Players can spawn in certain NPCs to help with their progress and unlock new content.
Stranded profiles can be created with just yourself or friends using various methods.
Since players on Stranded profiles cannot leave their island, many changes have been made to make various aspects of the game accessible. Some of these changes include:
- The ability to place certain NPCs down to unlock their content.
- You can cure Zombie Villagers into Villagers, which can be traded with to obtain various items.
- New spawning conditions for various Mobs.
- Additional drops from certain Mobs.
- New shop items in specific NPCs.
- Slayer quests can be completed.
- Additional fishing drops.
- Wheat grows around 10x faster.
- Emerald Minion is a lot slower.
- New Minion Upgrades
- Deep Ocean Biome grants extra Sea Creature Chance
- Changes to Pond Island crafting recipe.
- Travel Scrolls or Portals have been replaced by Skill Experience.
- And more!
Villagers are mobs that can be spawned from curing Zombie Villagers. They can be traded with to obtain various items, as listed below.
Villagers have a tier between 1-5. Higher tiers can be obtained by trading in various amounts of Emeralds, which in turn will unlock various new trades.
|Villager Tier||Emeralds Required||Cumulative|
Below is a list of items that can be traded to Villagers.
- Item for Emerald Trades
- Emeralds for Item Trades
These items can be traded to obtain 1 Emerald each. The cost can be between -10% and +10% of the amount listed.
|Dark Oak Wood|
These items can be traded to villagers for emeralds, and sometimes other items as well. Many trades require certain tier villagers.
In addition to the standard set of Trades, there are several additional items you can trade for on Stranded profiles. You cannot trade for a Portal To The Hub.

Collections and Minions
Almost all of the standard Collections can be unlocked on Stranded, with the exception of Boss collections.
Minions are mostly unchanged for Stranded, though there are some differences:
- The Emerald Minion is drastically slower.
- The Mycelium Minion does not require any Mage Reputation to be used.
- Likewise, the Red Sand Minion does not require any Barbarian Reputation to be used.
- You can place a Summoning Eye into an Enderman Minion to make it spawn Zealots instead.
- You can place a Sea Lantern Hat into a Zombie Minion to make it spawn Lapis Zombies instead.
Many of the Collections are mostly the same on Stranded, though there are some key differences in what they offer, as listed below.

Every night past the first one, Mobs will spawn in the places with low light level on your Private Island. Their level is decided based on the player's Combat level, so even in the later stages of the game they should be taken into account.
Mobs have different spawning mechanics on Stranded islands. A list of every Mob as well as their spawning conditions can be seen below:
Hints can be purchased from Jerry for 1,000 Coins each. A list of every hint can be seen as follows:
- Did you know Slimes can spawn near the void?
- In my opinion, Magma Cubes are just fiery Slimes.
- Cocoa Beans only grow on one type of tree!
- Shiny creatures can drop shiny things!
