Netherite Ore Checklist

Before you get started on your Netherite Ore quest in Minecraft, you'll have to make sure you have a Diamond Pickaxe and a furnace.

Once you're the proud owner of these two items, you can begin your quest.

Ancient Debris

You'll have to ensure you're well stocked with Gold, if you have hopes of acquiring Netherite Ore in Minecraft.

Smelt down the Ancient Debris and you'll get a single Netherite Scrap.

Before you think it's impossible, let's take a look at just how awesome the pay off is!
