Be it original Minecraft or the recently released Minecraft Legends, Diamonds remain one of the rarest resources in the series. Diamonds in Minecraft Legends are needed to create some really powerful units as well as structures to keep your village safe. Thanks to the plethora of uses that it offers, knowing how to farm Diamonds effectively can be very helpful. Don’t worry though as farming Diamonds in Minecraft Legends is far easier than what it used to be in the original Minecraft. This guide will detail some tips and tricks that you can use to easily farm a lot of Diamonds in Minecraft Legends.
Farming Diamonds in Minecraft Legends
While it is easier to farm the resource as compared to the original game, you cannot expect to come across Diamonds in every biome you visit. There are two biomes that you we suggest exploring if you wish to farm a good amount of Diamonds. These are Snowy Tundra and Jagged Peaks. Before you can extract them, however, you will need to complete some pre-requisites.
To be able to extract Diamonds from various deposits, you will first need to buy the Resource Extraction upgrade. Once you have unlocked it, you will be able to walk to a resource deposit and extract it. It is as simple as that! Unlike the original Minecraft, there is no exploring the caves for eternity involved. The process is fairly streamlined.
Aside from these deposits, we also recommend searching the areas (Jagged Peaks and Tundra) for various resource chests in the villages. You can open these chests to get some Diamonds from them as well. Another important thing that you need to note is that these chests refill over time so you can open them after different intervals.
Where to Use Diamonds?
As I mentioned earlier, Diamonds are used to create some of the best units that Minecraft Legends has to offer. These include the ranged Skeleton units that are really good to take out enemies from a safe distance. Aside from these Skeleton units, you can also use Diamonds to build structures such as Frost Towers, Spyglass Overlook, Ice Traps, etc. which can be invaluable when it comes to defending your village. However, it is important to note that these structures/units cost a lot of Diamonds so my advice is to get them whenever possible.
How to Store More Diamonds?
Now that you know all about farming a decent amount of Diamonds without much effort, let us talk about storing them. If you are planning on farming a lot of Diamonds, I recommend that you get the Gather Diamonds Improvement at the Well of Fate for 100x Stone and 150x Prismarine. This will allow you to store up to 150x Diamonds per upgrade which is pretty nice and will save you a lot of trips to and from the village. However, do note that you will need to destroy the Piglin Fortress in order to unlock the upgrade.
