Netherite Tools and Armor
Netherite was implemented to Minecraft in the version 1.16 update currently making it the strongest ingot to make tools and armor! It is only found in the nether, but like diamonds, it is rare and difficult to find. Although netherite may be hard to find, there is always a way to quickly and easily find it in some simple steps!
Step 1: Craft Beds
The first thing you need to do is craft some beds for the nether! To craft beds, all you need are wooden planks from trees and wool! You can either kill some sheep to gather wool or create sheers in order to sheer the wool off the sheep. An alternative method you can do to gather wool is by using 4 string in your crafting table. If there’s a village nearby, you can also raid the villagers house and steal their beds.
Step 2: Find Diamonds
You are now going to need diamonds! Without diamonds, you are not able to create your netherite tools or armor! A quick way to find diamonds is to dig down until your Y-coordinates hit 11 and dig in a straight line until you find diamonds. Make sure you have enough diamonds to create whatever netherite tool or armor you need! You can now create a diamond pickaxe and grab 10 obsidian to create a nether portal in order to enter the nether biome!
Step 3: Find Ancient Debris
Now that you have entered the nether you want to grab some gold ingots for later! Once you grab some gold, like finding diamonds, you must dig down until your Y-coordinates hit 11 and mine some blocks in a straight line. In the tiny hole you created, place a bed and a block behind it. By trying to sleep in a bed in either the end or nether, it creates a giant explosion! If you do not place a block in front of you, the giant explosion will kill you!
You will now want to continue the process of digging a hole and use the beds you created to make a giant explosion to quickly cover the area and find an item called ancient debris. Once you finally find ancient debris, make sure to mine it with a diamond pickaxe, otherwise, you won’t grab the ancient debris! Before you leave, make sure to have at least 4 ancient debris!
Step 4: Crafting Your Netherite Tools/Armor
Now that you have your ancient debris, you want to smelt it on a furnace to create an item called netherite scrap. Once you have 4 netherite scrap, you want to place the 4 netherite scraps and 4 gold ingots in a crafting table (in any position) to create 1 netherite ingot. You now want to craft a smithing table by using 4 wooden planks and 2 iron ingots. By using the smithing table, you can place both your diamond tools or armor and your netherite ingot to finally create your netherite item!
Hope this helped and good luck!
