Wybels (pronounced like dribbles) are an animal species mostly endemic to Gavel Province, which can be found throughout Wynncraft. They resemble an amalgamation of real-world animals including rabbits and sheep, and are found in a wide variety of colors and other variations. They were first introduced in the 1.14.1 Gameplay Update.
The only places where Wybels can be found in the wild are on Wybel Island in the Sky Islands, and in a small nest in The Void. Most Wybels are generally passive, though certain unique, named Wybels spread across Wynn and Gavel are cuddly defensive mobs and will follow you if you find them. One Wybel in particular is extremely aggressive; in general, however, they have little fighting ability. The primary drop of most Wybel mobs is Wybel Fluff, a common Crafting Ingredient used in Tailoring at level 90.
Pets[edit | edit source]
Many varieties of tamed Wybels are available as Pets. However, they are not for sale in the Wynncraft Store, and can only be found in Loot Crates. They range in rarity from Common to Black Market rewards. Pet Wybels can be acquired through redeemable Wybel Tokens, available from Loot Crates, and like other pets, any Wybels you own can be renamed and summoned to follow you. Common-tier Wybels include White, Cream, Chocolate and Gray; Rare Wybels are Mint, Pink or Violet; and Epic-tier Wybels are the Sea Blue and Sky Blue varieties. An Orange Wybel pet is also available as a Godly-tier reward.
Cybels, a new variation of Wybels, were added to the Crate rewards in the 1.16 Corkus Update. This Corkian variety are robotic in nature, and emit a plume of smoke behind them. They include Bronze, Chrome, and Carbon Fiber Cybels, as well as the Orange Cybel, a cyborg version of the Orange Wybel. The Orange Cybel pet is a Godly reward, while the other Cybels are Epic rewards.
With the addition of Black Market-tier Crate rewards in the 1.17 Dungeons & Discoveries Update, four new Black Market Wybel pets were added: Angel, Dragon, Rainbow and Demon Wybels. Each has a unique skin and other unique cosmetic effects.
Wybel Island[edit | edit source]
Wybel Island is a lush island at the bottom tier of the Sky Islands in Gavel, and the natural habitat of Wybels in the province. It is dotted with small nests and inhabited by level 90 Wybels of every color. These include passive Wild Wybels, Affectionate Wybels which will follow you around, and neutral Scared Wybels, which will fight back if attacked. None of these varieties are particularly dangerous or difficult to kill, and the island itself is generally peaceful, but dangerous hostile mobs from neighboring islands may sometimes wander to it. The unique Wybels on the island are its only significant feature, aside from The Orange Wybel.
The Orange Wybel[edit | edit source]
|This page contains spoilers. Readers are discouraged from continuing if they want to discover features by themselves.|
The primary attraction of Wybel Island is The Orange Wybel Boss Altar. Hidden beneath the island is a technologically-advanced laboratory that apparently belongs to the titular Orange Wybel, the only one of its kind. A waterfall passing by the south side of the island gives access to a short parkour course beneath it, which in turn leads to the empty laboratory.
Inside is an Altar that can be activated with 20 Wybel Fluff to fight the level 140 Orange Wybel. It is aided by hordes of level 80 Rowdy Wybels, as well as powerful destructive machines built out of "flower petals and wood pulp". The Orange Wybel is one of the most difficult bosses in the game, recommended for only the strongest players, and it also appears to be much more intelligent than other Wybels (being the only one known to speak). It drops the crude but very powerful Stinger, Bonder, Braker and Slider, all level 99 Legendary weapons, as well as Borange Fluff, a coveted level 100 Crafting Ingredient.
A robotic recreation of the Orange Wybel built by Doctor Legendary, the Orange Cybel, is the second-to-last boss in the Legendary Challenge. It has significantly increased damage output compared to the Orange Wybel, as do its Remote Controlled Cybels, the equivalents to the Rowdy Wybels.
Other Wybels[edit | edit source]
Throughout Gavel and Wynn, many Wybels have been tamed and kept as pets; an Ahmsord Citizen mentions that after Wybels suddenly appeared, many people took them in. Nine such Wybels, each a different color, can be found in many of the major cities of the world. They are all defensive mobs, and will follow you if you find them, but some cannot leave their houses. They include:
- Nibbles, a level 10 Pink Wybel, is found on the ground floor of the house just north of the Detlas Airbase.
- Seafoam, a level 30 Sea Blue Wybel, wanders near the central fountain of Selchar.
- Sandy, a level 30 Cream Wybel, is located on the top floor of a house near the northern edge of Almuj.
- Fluffy, a level 40 White Wybel, found in a house on the east side of Llevigar, on the highest tier above Llevigar University.
- Honeydew, a level 50 Mint Wybel found above the Weapon Merchant's shop in Troms.
- Spooky, a level 70 Violet Wybel, is found on the second floor of a house in Lexdale that appears to have been the site of a massacre.
- Scotch, a level 75 Chocolate Wybel in the middle of the Potion Merchant's shop in Cinfras.
- Rocky, a level 90 Gray Wybel, can be found in one of the upper-level houses in the southwest corner of Rodoroc.
- Bluebell, a level 90 Sky Blue Wybel, is found on the top floor of the southernmost house in Ahmsord.
Level 95 Fallen Wybels, found only in a small cave in the Void just outside the Void Village, appear in a variety of colours and in three types (passive, defensive and neutral); like their counterparts on Wybel Island, they have little significance aside from being a source of Wybel Fluff. Notably, however, unlike all other creatures in the Void, the Fallen Wybels do not appear to be mutated.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Poaching of Wybels appears to be a practice in Wynn and Gavel, and several items can be acquired made from Wybel products. A severed Wybel Paw can be bought from the Black Market Merchant in Almuj and used as a Dagger by Assassins and Ninjas, and the Wybel Ivory Wand is a Rare Wand obtained as a regular mob drop.
- The name Honeydew is likely a reference to Simon Lane of The Yogscast, a popular Minecraft YouTuber.
- According to Selvut283, Wybels were inspired by the Fobby, a minor enemy from the EarthBound series of games.
- The Orange Wybel was based on “Fobbyiyg”, a secret boss with a similar disposition from the EarthBound fan-game Cognitive Dissonance, in which he is extremely dangerous as opposed to the other, docile Fobbies; its speech and appearance were based on this. Some minor details in its laboratory also reference Fobbies.
- Selvut283 also asserts in this post that Wybels are, in fact, aliens, suggesting that they are not actually native to Wybel Island.
- A sign in the Orange Wybel's laboratory mentions Nibbles, possibly implying a close connection between it and the named Wybels in the game.
