Netherite is a highly prized material that is utilized to create top-of-the-line equipment in Minecraft. Below are instructions on how to locate, make, and utilize Netherite within the game.

Note: The information provided is applicable to Minecraft on all platforms.

How Do I Find Netherite in Minecraft?

In Minecraft, Blocks of Netherite do not spawn naturally and must be crafted. This is done by smelting Ancient Debris in a Furnace.

Ancient Debris is a rare material that can only be found in the Nether and requires a Diamond Pickaxe to be mined.

Once you have obtained Netherite Scraps, you can combine them with Gold Ingots to create Netherite Ingots.

These Ingots can then be used to create powerful Netherite weapons, tools, and armor.

Additionally, combining 9 Netherite Ingots will allow you to craft a block of Netherite, which can help to save space in your inventory.

How Do I Make Netherite in Minecraft?

To craft Netherite Ingots in Minecraft, follow these steps:

1. Construct a Nether Portal and enter the Nether.


2. Mine 4 blocks of Ancient Debris using a Diamond Pickaxe. You will need 4 blocks to create one Netherite Ingot.


3. Create a Furnace and smelt the Ancient Debris to produce 4 Netherite Scraps.


4. Smelt Raw Gold in a Furnace to create 4 Gold Ingots.


5. Combine the 4 Netherite Scraps and 4 Gold Ingots in any arrangement within a Crafting Table to produce one Netherite Ingot. You have now successfully crafted a Netherite Ingot in Minecraft.

Tip: To create a Crafting Table, combine 4 Wood Planks, any type of wood will suffice.


6. To conserve space in your inventory in Minecraft, you can combine 9 Netherite Ingots to create a block of Netherite.


Where Do I Find Ancient Debris in Minecraft?

In Minecraft, Ancient Debris can be found spawning deep within the Nether, typically appearing in veins of 2-3 blocks.

The material is most commonly found below Y coordinate 15.

To display your coordinates, press the F3 key on your keyboard, or navigate to Settings > Game > Show Coordinates (the Y coordinate is represented by the middle number).

When mining for Ancient Debris in Minecraft, it is important to exercise caution as there is a risk of encountering lava.

To minimize this risk, it is recommended that you construct a winding stairway rather than dig straight down.

It is also crucial to pay close attention to your surroundings and ensure that you can navigate back to your Nether Portal.

As the Nether can be quite dark, consider bringing torches with you to help illuminate your path.

In Minecraft, Ancient Debris has a high blast resistance, making it a challenge to excavate.

However, one potential strategy involves using TNT to mine for it.

To craft TNT, arrange 4 Sand blocks and 5 Gunpowder in the following pattern:


Once you have crafted TNT, place it on the ground and light it using Flint and Steel, then quickly move out of the blast radius.

Most blocks will be destroyed by the explosion, except for Obsidian and Ancient Debris.

Repeat the process of blowing up blocks until you have successfully obtained all the Ancient Debris you need.

How Do I Craft Netherite Equipment?

To create Netherite tools, weapons, and armor in Minecraft, you will need to combine your existing Diamond equipment with a Netherite Ingot using a Smithing Table. Follow these steps:

1. Craft a Smithing Table by placing 2 Iron Ingots in the first two boxes of the top row of a Crafting Table, and Wood Planks in the first two boxes of the middle and bottom rows.

Tip: Iron Ingots can be obtained by smelting Iron Ore in a Furnace.


2. Place the Diamond equipment you want to upgrade in the first box of the Smithing Table.


3. Place a Netherite Ingot in the second box.


4. Drag the newly created Netherite equipment into your inventory. Any enchantments on the Diamond equipment will transfer over to the Netherite equipment.


Netherite tools in Minecraft are faster, stronger, and more durable than their Diamond counterparts.

Additionally, Netherite armor provides better protection than Diamond armor, making it especially useful when fighting formidable enemies such as the Withers and the Ender Dragon.

As an added bonus, all Netherite equipment floats in lava, making it easier to retrieve if accidentally dropped.
