How to Find Netherite in Minecraft 1.18.2

The world of Minecraft is dangerous. There are hostile crowds, warden like mini-boss and rocks standing at every turn. Therefore, you have to do everything in your power to protect yourself from all the dangers of the game.

Fortunately, Minecraft has a solution within its world as the Netherlands. Netherite is one of the rarest and strongest Minecraft ore that you can use to make powerful weapons and the strongest armor in sports.

1. Using efficient mining methods

Over the years, the community has discovered several mining methods that can help boost players’ rate of finding rare ores such as diamonds and ancient rubble.

Branch mining and strip mining are two of the most efficient methods for mining ancient rubble. In branch mining, the player mines a few blocks, creates a path, then turns left and mines five blocks (both upper and lower) in both directions. By repeating this process, players can obtain ore of some ancient rubble.

Strip mining is similar to branch mining. However, in this method, the player mins in a straight line as long as he wants and then goes back to the starting point. However, players have to be careful with the lava.

2. Mining at the correct height

All ores in Minecraft have a limit to the height between which they can be generated. This range is quite large for ancient rubble. In the Netherlands, ancient debris originates between Y level 8 and 119.

However, it is not a good idea to start mining at any altitude in this range as the chances of generating ancient debris are quite low at most Y levels. On average, players will find the most ancient debris on Y 15.

3. The Bed Method (Early Game)

Players looking to get to the ancient rubble first in their world of existence and probably want to prepare a lot of beds due to the lack of equipment needed to remove the mine.

The beds in End and Nether explode, which destroys all the weak blocks around it and clears a large portion of the underground blocks. All players have to do is place a bed four blocks away from them, use a block of cobblestone under their feet to protect it from the glass, and interact with the bed to protect the player from harm.

Although this method is slower than strip mining, the bed method is still the most efficient way to mine ancient rubble in the early game.

4. Best Biomes for Netherite

Officially, there are no known biomes that have a high rate of ancient rubble (or the Netherland). But according to the community and our testing, you should go for the following biomes:

Distorted Forest: This biome is full of resources, easy to find, and can help you lay the groundwork for your research.

Basalt Deltas: Except for dangerous terrain, this biome has a low spawn rate for hostile mobs other than magma cubes. So, you can freely seek out the netherite without attacking it.

Netherlands Trash: This is the most common biome in the Netherlands. This is also the biome most players are familiar with. And because of the repeating blocks, it will also be easier to find ancient rubble during strip mining.

5. Conditions for Spawning of Ancient Debris

With ore blocks and knowledge of the Minecraft biome in your hands, it’s time to focus on the most important part of our guide. Here are the prerequisites for laying ancient rubble eggs in Minecraft:

With Minecraft’s Ore Generation, you can get up to five ancient rubble blocks per block. But the actual spawn rate on average is closer to two blocks.

It is usually born between level 8 and 22 of Y (height). But according to a test from the Minecraft Wiki, you can find the most ancient rubble at level Y=15.

Unlike many other ore blocks, ancient debris forms away from exposure to air. This means that you will always find it surrounded by other blocks or lava.

Finally, when spawning, ancient debris gets loaded next to Nether, Basalt and Blackstone. So, look at the surroundings of these blocks while mining.
