Netherite is a rare material from the Nether, used primarily to upgrade diamond gear. Netherite items are more powerful and durable than diamond, can float in lava, and cannot burn. All of the blocks are also unbreakable with explosion values of even 7/8, the highest in the game, although in item form they are destroyed upon contact with a cactus like any other item. Like obsidian, it can still be broken by blue wither skulls, which always drops the item.
Blocks and items Netherite
Many blocks and items make netherite, are made with netherite, or are directly stated to be netherite. They are:
- Ancient Debris − a rare blast-resistant block found in the Nether that can be smelted into Netherite Scraps. Ancient debris are most frequently found at y-level 15-21. Like most netherite-related items, a diamond or netherite pickaxe is needed for the item to drop.
- Netherite Scrap − an item obtained by smelting ancient debris in a furnace or blast furnace with fuel. Netherite Scraps can also be found as loot inside a Bastion Remnant − Ancient Debris, Netherite Scrap or Netherite Ingots can be found in this structure.
- Netherite Ingot − an item created by combining 4 netherite scraps and 4 gold ingots, used for crafting and smithing.
- Block of Netherite − a block used for decoration, beacon bases, and compact netherite ingot storage. It is blast resistant and can be moved with pistons.10
Blocks that appeared only in joke versions containing netherite textures, but not necessarily made of netherite. They are:
- Swaggiest stairs ever – an April Fool’s joke version of stairs for the netherite block, available only in snapshot 20w14∞.
Netherite gear is made by upgrading diamond gear using a smithing table. These keep their custom names and enchantments. Netherite gear also has more durability than diamond gear. These are:
- Netherite Sword
- Netherite Pickaxe
- Netherite Axe
- Netherite Shovel
- Netherite Hoe
- Netherite Helmet
- Netherite Chestplate
- Netherite Leggings
- Netherite Boots
How to Get Netherite in Minecraft Easy?
Here are some of the best ways to obtain Netherite in Minecraft Java & Bedrock:
#5 – Strip mining
Strip mining is the most basic way of obtaining Netherite, and the best level to find it is at the coordinate Y = 12. Players should leave two blocks in between lanes and then just mine in a straight line, creating a strip.
Players must remain vigilant about the lava pockets they might run into while mining. While strip mining may feel like a somewhat boring process, it is very easy to do, highly effective, and only requires diamond pickaxes.
#4 – TNT mining
Should a player have access to TNT, it can be a very effective mining tool for finding ancient debris. This is due to the low blast resistance of Netherrack and the very high blast resistance of ancient debris.
Ultimately, this means lots of Netherrack is cleared in a TNT explosion, leaving behind any precious ancient debris hidden inside.
To begin TNT mining, players must again go to Y = 12, light a piece of TNT, then step back a bit and watch it clear the area for them, leaving any hidden ancient debris exposed.
The difficulty in this method resides in the scarcity of TNT, as players will either need a large supply of gunpowder or must have obtained enough TNT from pillaging desert temples.
#3 – Bed mining
Beds can be just as good as TNT when used in the Nether. This is because when a player tries to sleep on a bed in the Nether, the bed will explode with slightly less vigor than TNT.
The method of bed mining is the same as TNT mining, which is detailed in #4. Although the explosion is slightly smaller, beds are a far more sustainable resource, as they are crafted from very cheap wool and wood planks.
#2 – Bastion Remnant loot
For players looking to challenge themselves with a raid on a Bastion Remnant, there’s a chance they’ll find Netherite scraps inside of chests that spawn. Occasionally, if players get especially lucky, a whole Netherite ingot can even be found.
Players must be ready to take on the Piglin hordes, which can be difficult to fight. But just like real life, there’s no true reward without any risk.
#1 – End crystal mining
For those players with resources to burn, they can always place end crystals down and shoot them with a bow to clear a large area soon. This is another way of creating an explosion to expose hidden ancient debris.
This, however, is a very expensive method of mining ancient debris as end crystals need ender eyes and ghast tears to craft. However, if players have an abundance of these items, they might as well use them.
Players can use Netherite for any of the above things.
