With the release of Nether update for Minecraft, Netherite has overtaken Diamond as the strongest upgrade material in the game. Finding the material, however, can be a little hard. In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about finding Netherite in Minecraft.
To get Netherite in the game, you’ll need to farm Ancient Debris – both of these materials go hand-in-hand. If you smelt Ancient Debris, you’ll receive Netherite Scraps which you can then combine with Gold Ingots to receive Netherite Ingots.
Aside from this, you’ll also need to have a Diamond Pickaxe since there isn’t any other way of mining Ancient Debris. With a Diamond Pickaxe at your disposal, proceed to anywhere between Level 8 to Level 22 to be able to find Ancient Debris – only in Nether. And yes, you’ll need to stick to lower levels.
If you’re having a hard time knowing where you are while playing on PC, you should be able to press F3 in order to enable the coordinates UI on the screen. What you need to do is to make sure that your Y-coordinate is somewhere between 8-22.
You should also be sure to remain careful while trying to mine so as not to fall into the lava or something. As mentioned earlier, Ancient Debris is a fairly rare resource in Minecraft but you should find some eventually.
Once you’ve found some, make sure to craft some Netherite Scraps and then combine them with Gold Ingots to get Netherite Ingots to craft Netherite Tools in the game. Being the best tools in the game as of now, you should be able to reap plenty of benefits such as improved weapon DPS, increased resistances, and more.
