With a new Minecraft Nether patch, developers have added a new “Netherite” addition in the game. The new Nether update changed and added a lot of things that were never seen before. Netherite is a new rare material which is more superior and valuable than diamonds. Because it’s a new material, players are not aware of its exact location on Minecraft’s map.
Finding Netherite is a bit tricky. Players can only find it in the lower parts of the Nether. Players can mine it using the diamond tools, but locating the Netherite will remain difficult for the players. However, this material is very useful, and there’s no option to leave it behind. To progress the game, it is necessary to have Netherite gear. So here’s the guide to find it.
How to Get Netherite in Minecraft
Finding Netherite is not as simple as finding other materials. Most of the materials in the game require mining, but things are quite different from Netherite. To find the Netherite, you have to follow a few extra steps, including mining. However, the mining process of the Netherite is slightly different. You have to put it inside the furnace and merge it with a whole different item to get tools and armor. To get the Netherite, here is what you need to do:
- Get the Diamond Pickaxe.
- Mind a total of 12 Obsidians and make Nether Portal.
- Remember the area of your Nether Portal to get back home safely.
How to find the Ancient Debris
To get the Netherite, first, you need to have the Ancient Debris and things mentioned above. All these things exist in the Nether. When you move through the Nether Portal, you have to dig deep. You’ll find extra Debris if you dig on a higher surface from the bottom. However, the portal generates a random location, so it becomes slightly tricky to find how far you need to dig.
Once you land on the surface, you simply need to press the F3 button. It will show you the coordinates X, Y, and Z of the land. There you simply need to focus on Y-axis to enhance your chances to locate the Ancient Debris.
If you rely on the Y-axis, it will help you to find the deep bottom layer of the world. Ancient Debris spawns in the veins of 1-3 blocks at the Y-axis 8-22. It can also spawn in the veins of 1-2 blocks at the Y-axis 8-199. So there are a total of 5 blocks where you can find the Ancient Debris.
How to Acquire Netherite Ingots in Minecraft
Once you have the Ancient Debris, you need to melt it in the furnace by using any fuel source. A single Ancient Debris creates only one Netherite Scrap. To have a Netherite Ingot, you need to craft four Netherite Scrap. You can also use four Gold Ingots to get the Netherite Ingot. Acquiring Netherite Ingots will indeed take some time because of the lengthy process, but the results are really helpful. After having multiple Netherite Ingots, you can craft armor and tools to progress the game quickly.
The majority of the games are adopting the crafting system. It makes the experience of playing smooth, and players gain more time to learn the game. Finding the materials is a tough process in Minecraft, but after acquiring enough material, players can craft preferred tools to progress the game.
