As one of the strongest materials in the entire game, Netherite is not that easy to find. As the name suggests, you’ll have to descend through a portal into the infernal Nether.

Mine it to get the Netherite, which you can use to strengthen your equipment.
How to get netherite? Fast!
As already mentioned, Netherite is quite rare. But there is a method by which you can collect a lot of Netherite quickly. All you need is your diamond pickaxe and some TNT.
Go to altitude level 15 in the Nether, here the probability of finding Ancient Debris is the highest. There are 1 to 6 Ancient Debris blocks per chunk. Therefore, we want to conduct our search for these blocks at a chunk boundary. This way we have access to two chunks at the same time, doubling the probability of finding Ancient Debris. You can adjust your game options or use a texture pack to see the chunk boundaries.
Simply build a long corridor along the chunk boundary. Then place TNT in this corridor at a distance of 3 blocks. If you now light a TNT block, you will blow up a wide shaft in which you will find some Netherite. If you stumble across gold during your Netherite search, take it with you. We will need it later to make the Netherite ingots.
