So you’ve had a lot of adventures into the overworld and want to do some exploring in another dimension? Maybe you want to beat the Ender Dragon and want some blaze rods. Whatever your reason for going to Minecraft’s hell is, we’ll get you there. In the last article, we had looked into how to go to the Nether and create a Portal in Minecraft. In this article, we will discuss the top 10 Do’s and Don’ts for the Nether in Minecraft.
Minecraft: Do’s and Don’ts for the Nether
Top 10 Do’s
- Carry an extra flint and steel in case your portal breaks.
- Cobble is resistant to damage from ghast fireballs. Use it to make tunnels and cover your portal in Minecraft.
- Use a respawn anchor to set your respawn point in the Nether.
- Use a Fire Resistance potion in case you fall into the lava. Carry golden apples as well.
- Netherite armour and tools don’t get destroyed in Lava. Instead, they float over it.
- One block in the Nether is equal to 8 blocks in the Overworld. This can be used to travel larger distances in the overworld quicker.
- Use TNT/ beds to look for Netherite. It’s resistant to blast damage.
- Use a Sword or Bow and Arrow to send back a ghast’s fireball… The right timing can result in the fireball hitting the ghast itself.
- >Wear some kind of gold armour so that Piglins don’t attack you. Also, trade with them!
- >Lost? Place all your items in a chest, cover it up with some cobble, note your coordinates and jump in lava. You’ll respawn where you placed your bed in the Overworld/ respawn anchor in the Nether.
Top 10 Don’ts
- Run around without being aware of your surroundings. If you don’t know the terrain, you might fall into a lava lake and burn up. Remember, water buckets don’t work in water.
- There’s a reason why Respawn Anchors were added to the game. That reason? Beds can’t be used in the Nether, They can be placed down but trying to use them would result in an explosion.
- Open chests and mine gold in front of Piglins. They’ll turn on you if you do. Also, don’t hit them unless you want to get swarmed and killed.
- Stay in one place in the open for too long. If you go afk and a ghast sees you, it won’t turn around well. And Ghasts aren’t the only mob out to get you.
- Jump off high cliffs without a way to break your fall… Water buckets don’t work in the Nether so that can’t save you.
- Build one block wide open bridges. You don’t want to get blasted off your bridge straight into lava. Instead, take the time to make a closed up bridge made with cobble.
- Dig straight down. This is a rule which applies to all the dimensions. Don’t dig straight down because you might just end up digging straight into lava.
- Take on Wither skeletons with melee weapons. Wither skeletons can hurt you really badly so it’s best to use a bow and arrow or a crossbow.
- Destroy Blaze Spawners. Blazes provide blaze rods which are a very important item and you shouldn’t destroy the spawners to get a constant supply of the blaze rods.
- Carry valuable items. Unless you’re in a safe area, don’t carry any valuable items because if you end up dying, you might lose them as well.
That’s our list of Do’s and Don’ts in Minecraft’s hellish wasteland! Just keep them in mind and you (hopefully) would manage to survive your adventure.
