Mining is an activity that must be done in playing Minecraft in survival mode. Because of what? Because with that, players can get material that is very useful and valuable. One of the most useful is iron, and the most expensive is the diamond or emerald.
It has become the main goal of Minecraft players to get diamonds in mining because, with diamonds, players can make equipment with high durability, and items that are needed, such as Diamond Sword and Enchantment Table to give effect to weapons. As for Emerald, this is also a valuable material and is used for trading or buying goods from Villager. But this emerald is very difficult to find, even harder than finding diamonds.
Mining in Minecraft also requires luck. Because every map in Minecraft, the location of the material is not always the same because of differences in the seed; luck must be accompanied by effort because it can not only depend on luck. And in this post, I will give a guide to how to mine the right and also useful. This guide is intended for beginners.
1. Prepare the equipment
Prepare a lot of equipment. Bring items such as wood, pickaxes, torches, and lots of food. Also carry items such as crates, beds, and stoves or furnaces. What’s the use?
- Wood to make equipment if later on your equipment is destroyed because the mining process takes a long time.
- Pickaxes are clear for mining or crushing rocks.
- Food for you to survive while mining.
- Torch for lighting.
- The bed if you want to sleep at the same time to reset the respawn place.
- Perti to accommodate all your mining results.
- Furnace to melt iron and gold because it must be melted before it can be used.
Why isn’t coal brought? You can get coal quickly during mining, so you don’t need to carry it if you already have a lot of torches.
2. Start Mining
Look for a good place to start. I suggest just below the house so that later when you go up, you don’t need to worry if night falls and mobs attack. Destroy the blocks by turning while moving down to form a ladder with a distance of 1 × 1. This will help you make your way down, but you can go up again without stairs.
Dig until it reaches the final rock (bedrock) that can not be destroyed. In this way maybe you will find some material during the trip.
3. Try and be patient
When you reach bedrock, dig in any direction you want. Continue to dig and hope to find the diamond that you desire? Patience is very much needed at this stage.
4. Make an Iron Pickaxe
If you have found diamonds, gold, or Redstone, especially emerald, to take it, make sure you use an iron pickaxe to be taken. If not diamond, gold, and Redstone and emerald will burn if you only use a stone pickaxe. The recipe is the same as a stone cone; It only replaces the stone with iron that you find during your trip down. I’m sure you will find iron when you dig down. Be sure to melt the iron first so that it can be formed into a pickaxe.
5. Make a Diamond Pickaxe (If needed)
If you’ve got diamonds, make a diamond pickaxe to make obsidian. Keep in mind that obsidian can only be taken using a diamond pickaxe. And also to destroy it for so long. Obsidian is used to make Enchantment Tables and make The End Portal. The recipe is the same, replace the iron with diamonds.
6. Save Your Mining
If you have what you want, keep it safe before you accidentally die of lava so that your mining is not in vain.
The above method can be applied to all versions of Minecraft Maybe that’s all I can say about how to mine effectively for beginners in this post. Hopefully useful and good luck.
