So you made it to the Nether or maybe there’s a surplus of lava in your closest lava pit. In that case, ditch all that grimy coal and get a bucket of lava and throw it in your furnace. A single bucket of lava can smelt 100 items while a whole block of coal can smelt just 80 items.
We talked about machines to sort your items earlier. But that’s not where it stops. You can make automatic farms, automatic item smelters and a lot more! This makes your work easier and is a cool thing to have in your world.
Want some peace and calm? Head over to your closest Mushroom Biome where hostile mobs won’t spawn in unless there’s a mob spawner nearby or you didn’t sleep for 3 days, in which case phantoms would start pursuing you.
You now have the resources you need to brew some potions. In that case, depending on what kind of work you need to do, prepare some potions so that your work becomes easier. Use water breathing potions to stay underwater for longer periods of time, fire resistance potions to stop yourself from going up in flames or a health potion to fix yourself up.
Using an axe, pickaxe or shovel enchanted with Fortune III will allow you to collect more drops per block. This means that with a Fortune III Pickaxe, you can get multiple drops from a single block of diamond ore rather than a single drop per diamond ore. Similarly, the Efficiency Enchantment allows you to break down blocks more efficiently.
Once you have a base and enough resources, go out into the wild to truly enjoy the game and expand your world. Just remember the bare essentials you need to survive in the wild and untamed lands and you’re good to go.
It’s always very frustrating when you’re mining and your last pickaxe breaks or you’re trying to take down a horde of zombies when your sword breaks or your elytra breaks while you’re flying around in your world. Remember it’s cheaper to fix up your gear instead of making a new one when it breaks. As the saying goes “A stitch in time saves nine”.
One should make it a point to carry a water bucket in Minecraft. Whether it be to get down a ravine, walk over lava or save yourself from a tall fall. Water buckets are a multipurpose tool that you should always carry.
Being resource-rich, caves are also equally dangerous. Always use torches to keep areas lit, keep a weapon on your hotbar at all times and wear armour. If you want to take extra precautions, a shield won’t hurt.
This is a trick everyone should know. Clocks and compasses aren’t used all that often but take up space in your inventory and require resources. Instead of crafting them, simply head over to your crafting recipes and the clock and compass over there can work even without crafting them.
