What is Minecraft netherite? The latest material in Minecraft is available as part of the 1.16 update and you can find it in the deepest depths of the Nether…right? Yes, and you can also make it from a new ore called ancient debris, here’s how.
Netherite isn’t for the faint-hearted, it’s a high-level material and you better believe it does something special worth venturing through a Minecraft Nether portal for. You can use it to update your diamond gear, but instead of diamond+ it’s a whole new thing by itself, opening up possibilities for netherite items, gear, tools, weapons, and more.
Unfortunately you’ll have to take a trip to the Nether to find this material. Although you can craft it yourself, you’ll have to use ancient debris which you can find lurking in one of the Nether’s many biomes, all part of the Minecraft Nether update. Here’s how to make netherite in Minecraft, along with netherite effects, and why it’s so much better than diamonds.
