I've been building this Guardian farm on a Multiplayer server.
I cleared out all the water and removed the temple itself.

Then, I built the glass box in the middle and filled it with water.
Guardians do spawn a bit, but I want to higher the rates if possible.

And yes, I have lit up all nearby caves.

So I was wondering: will making the box bigger affect/improve my spawn rates?
Or does every temple have a set amount of spawns that will be concentrated if the spawning area is smaller than the temple monument.

Increasing spawn area will increase spawns.

If you increase the spawn area, spawn checks that would normally fail will now succeed, but at a certain point, there will be so many guardians spawning at a time that more will be unable to spawn.

  • It was a video by Xisumavoid, don't remember the exact one, but I remember that in general, if you have a larger spawn area, more spawn tries will be successful, up to a point.

It wil have more than double the spawnrate if you put a roon on it. No direct sunlight is the key.
