The new sounds:
  • Placing an anvil makes a loud metal clank.
  • Picking up your new renamed item from the anvil makes the sound of a hammer hitting the anvil three times
  • Bats make small squeaky noises.
  • The Ender Dragon roars as it flies towards you, it's wings now make large heavy flapping noises every time they swoop down, when you hit it it makes a low grunt.
  • When the Ender Dragon is killed you can hear its bones crumbling, while different effects (sounds like a synthesizer) plays in the background, along with roars of pain.
  • Zombies footsteps make squishy noises
