How to make Netherite Sword in Minecraft

Acquiring Netherite in Minecraft is not as straight forward as it sounds, but boy is it worth it!

Before we get started, you'll want to take a look at the below check-list. Make sure you have all of these items first!

A Diamond Sword

Firstly, you'll want to make sure you have a diamond sword, as Netherite itself is used to upgrade only Diamond level gear.

To make a diamond sword you'll need 2 diamonds and a stick. You may also need some patience, as diamonds are incredibly rare to come across!

Aquire some gold!

To create Netherite Ingot, you'll need at least 4 ingots of gold. Luckily gold is rare, but not as rare as diamonds to come across.

Mine Ancient Debris

A very tough material to find, but when smelted down it will produce a Netherite Scrap.

You'll need four of these scraps, combined with four gold ingots to create one Netherite Ingot.
