How To Get Netherite and Find Ancient Debris in Minecraft

Netherite, a new resource that was added to Minecraft with the 1.16 nether update, is used to create the most powerful weapons, armor, and tools in the game. Netherite equipment is stronger than diamond equipment in terms of durability. Netherite items are non-combustible and can also be dissolved in lava.

How to Get Netherite in Minecraft

It is best to find netherite by mining “ancient debris” blocks from the nether. These blocks can be used to melt into netherite scraps, which can then be used to create ingots, weapons, tools, or armor. Fortune enchantments will not increase the number of ancient debris blocks that you receive while mining. Every block you mine will result in one ancient debris block being dropped.

The appearance of ancient debris blocks is similar to a cobblestone with a reddish brown color, but they are not like other “ores” in Minecraft. Check out the image below to see how one looks.

During mining, an ancient debris block was found in the Nether.

It is extremely rare to find ancient debris blocks, even more than diamond ore. However, the best level to mine it for ancient debris is at 15.

A side note: Ancient debris blocks are not found naturally in the nether. They cannot be found while “spelunking” in the nether. You must dig deeper into the ground and walls to find them.

Bastion Remnants

You can also get netherite in Minecraft by finding treasure chests in Bastion Remnants. Bastion Remnants can be castle-like structures that naturally form in the nether. These chests may contain old debris or scraps.

It is more efficient to mine tunnels at level 15 rather than searching for Bastion Remnants, considering the time it takes to find them and the low amount of scraps that can be found in chests.

Recipe for netherite ingot making (4 netherite scraps + four gold ingots), in any order

To make one netherite Ingot, you will need four netherite scraps as well as four gold ingots. Your ingot can then be combined with any piece of diamond equipment (any weapon, tool or armor) at a smithing station to make netherite. In other words, to create these new pieces of equipment you will only need one netherite ingot.

You will need 4 netherite ingots to make a complete set of netherite armour. Each piece of diamond armor (helmets, chestplates, leggings, boots) will also be needed. To make an entire set of armor, you’ll need 16 scraps (4 ingots x 4 per ingot).

This process applies to all tools and weapons, including pickaxes and axes as well as shovels and shovels.

What is better than diamond or netherite?

For all tools, armor and weapons netherite is superior to diamond, particularly in terms of durability (how long it lasts before breaking). Netherite has the same defense points as diamond, but with an added bonus of knockback resistance and armor toughness. Netherite is better for weapons and tools in terms of damage output and block breaking time.

Is Netherite real (in real life)?

Netherite is a fictional material that was created for Minecraft. It doesn’t exist in real life, and it does not appear to have been derived from any “real-life” material.

Is it possible to swim in Lava while wearing Netherite Armor

Although netherite is not able to burn in fire or lava it can still cause damage to your skin when you touch lava. Your netherite items, including armor, tools, weapons and ingots, will float in the lava just like water, so they can be recovered.
