Hardest Minecraft Improvements

although Minecraft itself has no quests or set directions that players should go, the improvements found especially in the Java edition of the game give the player some general goals about what to do and how to interact with the open world- sandbox of the game. Many of these improvements are very simple, from getting wood or mining stone, and shouldn’t pose much of a problem even for novice players.

However, there are other, more difficult advancements in Minecraft that really test the limits of even the most experienced players. Many of them border on downright ridiculous, and instead of pushing the game’s “story” forward, they’re more like challenges for players to try and complete on their journey. For the completers out there, the following improvements to the Java edition of: Minecraft are by far the hardest to unlock.

10 serious dedication

Starting with something that is extremely unexciting and quite simple is Serious Dedication. Players must completely use up a Netherite hoe until it runs out of durability and breaks. On paper, it sounds extremely simple, as the player doesn’t take care of risking his life except to actually get his hands on the said Netherite. They have to make a diamond hoe first and then upgrade it to Netherite, both of which are a waste of resources.

After that, players need time. A lot of that. The Netherite hoe has a durability of 2031, which means it can be used 2031 times before breaking. Now imagine having to work the ground so many times in the game. Needless to say, players will need some wrist support after a while, given the intense and ridiculous nature of these advancements. Luckily, there’s a little trick: using a Netherite hoe to hit a mob also counts as a single durability point, so the next time players need a weapon while mining in the caves, they can just as make good use of their Netherite hoe.

9 Return to shipper

When it comes to tough advances that are relatively accessible even to newer players, the Return to Sender Advancement is probably the best example. To unlock it, players must kill a Ghast with its own fireball which it spits out. This, of course, requires that the players have access to the Nether and find a Ghast, as well as a relatively safe location in the Nether where they can fly the Ghast’s attacks without falling into lava.

When a Ghast spits out a fireball, players can hit the ball back with a sword, deflecting it in the Ghast’s face. It’s easier to do this when the Ghast is relatively close, as these fireballs don’t track targets. It’s also possible to use an arrow to fire the fireball, which can be a bit more reliable as players don’t have to think about timing a sword strike correctly and potentially scorch themselves.

8 cover me with rubble

For the longest time, Diamond gear was the best gear in Minecraft. However, with the 1.16 Nether update, everything changed thanks to the introduction of Netherite. This new material can be melted and crafted from Ancient Debris, which spawns exclusively in the molten depths of the Nether and is therefore extremely tricky and dangerous to mine. Not only that, players can only upgrade Diamond gear to Netherite, as crafting gear purely from Netherite is not an option.

So it goes without saying that it takes a lot of time, grinding and dedication to unlock this advancement, which will see the player wearing a full set of Netherite armor. There are a few tricks when it comes to mining Netherite, such as using beds to quickly mine through Netherrack. Netherite ingots also require the player to have gold bars on hand, so be sure to spend some time mining gold nuggets in the Nether and gold ore in the Overworld.

7 beaconator

Beacons are powerful endgame objects that players can create after defeating the Wither. This alone is quite a drag. To summon the Wither, players will need three Wither Skeleton Skulls, which can take a long time to find just by killing Wither Skeletons. Having a Looting III sword will speed up progress considerably, but it remains a matter of RNG. After that, they have to actually kill the Wither, which isn’t a lightweight boss mob either.

Once players have made the beacon from five glass blocks, the Nether Star and three obsidian blocks, they must build a pyramid for it. The Beaconator Advancement requires a fully leveled pyramid of four levels, which must be made entirely of iron, gold, diamond or emerald blocks. Yes, blocks. The sheer time and effort required for this is significant, but by the time players encounter the Wither, they should already have a decent supply of ores available.

6 two by two

At some point in the game, probably quite early on, players will have to start breeding some of the animals they find in their world. Not only is this important for food, but it’s also part of one of the hardest improvements in the game to breed any animal. Minecraft. For reference, there are twenty-two mobs that players must first find and then breed with the correct food to complete this monumental task.

While most mobs, such as sheep, cows, pigs, chickens, and horses, are quite easy to find as they are abundant in forest and plain biomes, other mobs will be much trickier. Mooshrooms, ocelots, and axolotl will probably be the hardest to find, with Mooshrooms unique and exclusive to the mushroom island. Axolotl usually spawn in pools of water in lush caves, while ocelots are extremely rare and shy gangs found in jungle biomes.

5 A complete catalog

Speaking of animals, cats are the subject of another insanely difficult Minecraft Progress called a complete catalog. In this one, players must tame every single cat variant found in Minecraft. Currently there are eleven of them in the game, all characterized by a unique breed name and appearance.

While the task itself won’t be particularly difficult, as cats just need to be seduced and then tamed with raw cod or raw salmon while sneaking, finding all of these eleven variants will be a bit of a headache. There is a lot of RNG involved in the process, but the easiest way to do it is to simply try to find villages around the world. These are the most common places for cats to spawn.

4 A balanced diet

Another thing that abounds Minecraft is food. There are many, some great and some not-so-great sources of hunger in the world, and the goal of this Progress is to consume them all, even just once. And yes, that includes items that deal damage to the player, including Poisonous Potatoes, Rotten Flesh, and Pufferfish, not to mention the raw version of each meat type.

And if that wasn’t daunting enough, keep in mind that there are a total of 40 different foods in the game, some of which can be quite tricky for the player to get hold of, or at least require a bit of luck finding. Enchanted Golden Apples, Bottled Honey, Chorus Fruit, Glow Berries and Golden Carrots will be some of the more niche products that players may have a little trouble finding.

3 Adventure Time

For players who thought things couldn’t get any worse with 40 foods to find, they can definitely get worse. The Adventuring Time Advancement requires the player to visit 52 different biomes found in the Overworld of Minecraft. The only consolation here is that Nether biomes are not included in this equation and have their own (much easier) progress to unlock. However, the introduction of cave biomes has complicated matters as players now also have to visit these underground biomes.

While the vast majority of these biomes are quite common and easy to find if players are just exploring, there are some that can be a real headache to discover. Namely, the deep dark biome where the Warden lurks, mushroom fields unique to Mushroom Islands, ice peak biomes and the occasional jungle biome variants and badlands can be annoyingly rare and hard to find for some players, depending on the seed.

2 Uneasy alliance

Ghasts are some of the most annoying dangers in Minecraft’s Nether, and so it would only be appropriate for them to be included in the second most difficult Advancement in the game. This is unlocked when players transport a Ghast from the Underworld to the Overworld and then kill it in the Overworld. The task ahead is monumental, requiring players to first build a Nether portal large enough for the Ghast to fit through, then somehow guide the Ghast to the portal.

There are methods for this madness, although the easiest players can access the Nether roof area via an Ender Pearl glitch. Above that, players have more control over where they spawn mobs, as the roof is made entirely of rock, which mobs cannot spawn on. Then it’s a matter of catching the ghast in a boat or minecart when they eventually spawn, and send them through the portal before blowing up the portal and the player.

1 How did we get here

Minecraft features a ton of different status effects, some good and some bad. There are twenty-seven in total, and to apply them all at once within a short period of time seems an absolute impossibility. Videos of players using redstone machines to apply these effects more effectively all at once are circulating in the Minecraft community, which has made unlocking this advancement a little easier.

Some of the weirdest and hardest status effects players must have at the same time include Darkness from the Warden, Hero of the Village after a raid, Levitation from a shulker, Conduit power from a Conduit, and Dolphin’s grace from a dolphin swimming nearby. Lieinuxxseus demonstrated his incredibly comprehensive method of applying these status effects all at once in the 1.19 update, so players interested in replicating his method should check out his comprehensive guide to unlocking what is without a doubt the most difficult advancement in the game. is now.

Minecraft is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and many other platforms.
