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, you’ll need the best armor possible. Follow this guide on how to craft Netherite Armor in Minecraft.

Minecraft is a game where you start with nothing and gradually build your way up to better tools and equipment. One of the first things you need to do is to make wooden tools, such as a pickaxe, an axe, and a sword. These tools will help you gather more resources and explore the world.

However, wooden tools are not very durable or efficient, so you will soon want to upgrade to better materials, such as stone, iron, gold, and diamond. Diamond is the most robust material you can find in the Overworld. It can mine almost anything and last for a long time. But Netherite, which is found in the Nether, is even stronger than diamond. It also has some extra benefits, such as being fireproof and having more enchantments.

Therefore, if you want to face the most powerful bosses in Minecraft, such as The Wither and the Ender Dragon, you should upgrade your armor to Netherite. This guide will teach you how to make Netherite Armor in Minecraft step by step.

How to obtain Netherite Scrap and Netherite Ingot 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.
