The Curse of Binding will bind the item to you and prevent you from dropping it or taking it off if it is an armour item and the Curse of Vanishing will make the item disappear if you die.

Upon death there is a 50% chance of a Shulker Shell being dropped by a Shulker. A Shulker Shell crafted together with a Chest in a column can be made into Shulker Boxes.

Totem of Undying:

Upon Death Evokers will always drop one of these Totems and holding it in either hand will resurrect you upon taking lethal damage.

2 Explorer Maps:

These maps can only be obtained from cartographer villagers and they are used to locate ocean monuments and the new woodland mansions.

Woodland Mansions.

The woodland mansion is generated randomly in the Roofed Forest biome and can usually be located tens of thousands of blocks away from the spawn. They can either be found using woodland explorer maps which are bought from cartographer villagers with emeralds or by using the /locate Mansion command. There are different kinds of woodland mansions but they will all have certain things in common. They usually have 2-3 floors with a large variety of different rooms and the top floor is always a bit smaller than those below. All woodland mansions will also have a large foyer and a winding maze of corridors.

This is instead of 100 characters.

Various Items, such as Signs and Wooden Doors, can now be used as Fuel for a Furnace

Shields Now Block 100% of Damage Dealt in Melee Combat
