How to Obtain Netherite in Minecraft

Reading time: 139
Since its first release, the Nether in Minecraft has undergone several significant changes: after several updates in this region, new biomes, mobs, and resources have appeared, which can be collected and used for crafting various items. Along with this, new threats have emerged in the Nether, making exploration even more dangerous.

One of the most valuable materials that can be found in the Nether is Netherite. It is the strongest material in the game, but obtaining it is challenging. Netherite can be obtained from ancient debris - a rare ore that takes a considerable amount of time to find. In this guide, I will tell you about the best ways to mine ancient debris and obtain Netherite scraps.

Where can you find ancient debris?

Ancient debris can generate in any biome of the Nether and is most commonly found between the coordinates Y=8 and Y=22. The optimal point for generating ancient debris is Y=14. Although you can find ancient debris closer to the upper part of the Nether, they are most commonly found at these coordinates. Between the levels mentioned above, you can find from one to three ancient debris.

How to get to the Nether

To reach this place, dig a ladder down to the desired level. Be careful as there may be a lava lake below you. Do not dig directly below yourself; instead, move down at an angle to control where you step. Ancient debris is hidden from view, so you will need to dig up adjacent blocks. Once you discover ancient debris, you can mine it using diamond or Netherite tools.

Using dynamite to find Netherite

Using dynamite is the most efficient way to mine ancient debris. Unlike all other blocks in the Nether, ancient debris is blast-resistant. Thus, the block will not be destroyed by dynamite explosions. To mine ancient debris using dynamite, create a tunnel in the Nether between Y=8 and Y=22; dynamite creates a powerful explosive wave, so aim to hit approximately at Y=14 to destroy the area above and below the tunnel you create.

Then, after building the tunnel, place dynamite on every other block. Once you have placed all the dynamite, make sure to leave yourself an escape route. As mentioned above, dynamite creates a powerful explosion that can destroy you. After that, you can start working. Using a flint, ignite the dynamite closest to you and run away. After a few seconds, the dynamite will explode, causing a chain reaction throughout the tunnel. Wait for the detonation to finish, and then move back through the tunnel. As a result of such an explosion, a huge cave should appear in place of a small tunnel; and if there were ancient debris in this area, you will definitely see them.

Remember that the Nether is full of lava; therefore, there is always a chance that your explosions will create lava waterfalls. Avoid such areas and dangers. If ancient debris is located near lava, try to pick them up carefully. Ancient debris does not burn in lava, so even if they fall into it, there is no need to worry.

Ideally, you should collect the debris without touching the lava. If you have good armor and full health, you can immerse yourself in lava to pick up the debris. For a while, you will be under the burning effect, but you should not receive serious damage.

How to make dynamite

To mine ancient debris using dynamite, you will need a supply of gunpowder and sand. Creating one block of dynamite requires 5 portions of gunpowder and 4 blocks of sand. Getting sand is quite simple: you can find it near any shore or in a desert biome. Gunpowder is a bit more difficult to obtain. It drops from creepers, ghasts, and witches. To increase the amount of gunpowder dropped from the mobs listed above, try using a sword enchanted with Fortune.

Creating a creeper farm will provide a constant supply of gunpowder. Creeper farms are large, so creating them requires a lot of resources, but they are definitely worth it. You can find various design solutions for such farms on the internet.

Tools enchanted with efficiency

You can mine ancient debris without dynamite. By using a pickaxe enchanted with efficiency, you can quickly obtain Netherite scraps by destroying ancient debris. In general, Netherite scrap is mined very quickly. It takes 0.1 seconds to mine Netherite with a diamond pickaxe. If your pickaxe is enchanted with efficiency, you can destroy entire walls of Netherite stone in less than 1 second. Although this is not as fast as using dynamite, this method is still effective and relevant, providing the best alternative to explosives.

Mining using beds

Finally, you can mine Netherite using beds. It's dangerous but still an excellent way to search for ancient debris for those players who don't have dynamite.

To mine using beds, manually create a 4x1 tunnel, placing a bed in the last two spots. Place two blocks on the fifth spot, stacked on top of each other, to close the tunnel with the bed. Dig from the side until you see the bed corner. Crouch and click on the bed corner to cause an instant explosion. Basic armor will be enough to avoid any damage from the explosive wave. Click on the bed only after you are at a safe distance. Otherwise, you may die.
