Netherite is the strongest material in Minecraft that can outshine even Diamonds. If you’re looking to defeat the likes of Ender Dragon and the Wither, make sure to use this guide on how to craft a Netherite Armor in Minecraft.

Players start their Minecraft journey by making wooden tools and gradually move to better and more durable materials. When you’re close to beating the game, you’ll most likely want to use the strongest materials possible for tools and armor.

While Diamond is the strongest material in the Overworld, you can craft Netherite from the Nether and the latter is even more durable. Hence, to crush the most powerful bosses in Minecraft like The Wither and the Ender Dragon, it is recommended to upgrade your armor to Netherite.

In this guide, we’ll teach you how to make Netherite Armor in Minecraft.

You can obtain Netherite Scrap in Minecraft by smelting Ancient Debris in a furnace. Ancient Debris exclusively spawns in the Nether and for the most efficient results, you should search for it in Y=15.

Use a Diamond or Netherite pickaxe to farm Ancient Debris. If you use a weaker tool, breaking an Ancient Debris block will drop nothing.
