As the strongest type of defense in the game, netherite is one of the most desired components in Minecraft. For many players, using it as armor is a top priority. However, obtaining and using it is not at all simple, especially with the addition of Minecraft 1.20’s updated features. With that being said, we are here to help you with each step of how to craft netherite armor in Minecraft 1.20. Let’s have a quick look at what you need to do.
How to Craft Netherite Armor
You can craft the strongest armor, tools, and weapons in the game using netherite, which is the most durable material in Minecraft. Because of its immense power, even dropping it straight into the lava causes no harm.
But unlike other ores, it cannot be used right away after mining and does not spawn as a mineable ore. Moreover, accessing it requires traveling to the Nether dimension. Therefore, you must first obtain its ingots before you can begin crafting Netherite armor.
Netherite Armor Requirements
To create a full set of Netherite Armor, you are going to require all of the following:
- 4 Netherite Ingots
- 4 Upgrade Smithing Templates
- A Diamond Armor Set
- Smithing Table
How to Get Netherite Ingots
The Netherite Ingots are the mainstay of your Netherite Armor and are an essential part of your armory. These ingots hold the key to opening the door to your Netherite Armor, but their creation calls for the meticulous blending of specific components.
You will need to gather both gold ingots and netherite scraps before you can craft a netherite ingot. In order to craft a netherite ingot, you are going to need the items below.
- 4 Netherite Scraps
- 4 Gold Ingots
- 1 Crafting Table
Players who want to get their hands on netherite scraps in Minecraft will need to travel to the Nether dimension.
Simply mine the four ancient debris blocks there. Their general spawning height is below Y=15, the world height. After that, smelt these blocks in a blast furnace or furnace to produce scrap netherite.
Upgrade Smithing Templates
The upgrade smithing template can be obtained in the Bastion Remnants of Minecraft. You can use it to upgrade your weapons, tools, and diamond armor to netherite.
Carrying the upgrade template around in the Nether should be done with caution because it burns in lava, as opposed to any other netherite item, including scraps, ingots, blocks, gear, and ancient debris.
The center platform at the bottom of the larger portion of this type of bastion is encircled by lava. Usually, this platform has one or more chests and a ton of gold blocks covering it. There is a guarantee that every chest created on this platform comes with a netherite upgrade.
Crafting Netherite Armor
Now that we talked about how to get the necessities of Netherite Armor, let’s see how you are going to craft it.
- Put a Smithing Table on an even surface. Next, give it a right-click or press the secondary action key.
- Insert an Upgrade Smithing Template into the table’s farthest left slot.
- Put the diamond armor piece you wish to upgrade in the middle slot, which is adjacent to the template.
- Put the Netherite ingot in the Smithing Table’s farthest-right slot.
- Your diamond armor piece will transform into Netherite armor.
