For this reason, it is imperative that new players create a shelter with nearby materials. Although many veterans use blocks such as wood and stone for their first shelter, this is not always necessary.

Newcomers can create a shelter out of dirt blocks or even sand if they wish. As long as the shelter has no openings and is well lit with torches, it will keep them safe from hostile mobs trying to attack them.

Even when a Minecraft beginner is safe from hostile mobs, their hunger bar is another concern. If it’s too low, players will start taking health damage, though they won’t starve unless they’re on Hard mode or extreme difficulty settings. Regardless, staying fueled is vital to allow natural regeneration of health.

Players must check their surroundings for potential food sources. Killing cows or other animals can allow the meat to cook in an oven block.

Alternatively, players can break up some nearby tufts of tall grass to obtain wheat seeds and start a farm. Either way, they should be able to stave off starvation effectively by building up a food reserve.


3) Secure your tools

While wooden tools serve their purpose for Minecraft newcomers, they simply aren’t durable enough to rely on. As soon as a beginner has shelter and some food, he’ll want to start looking for tool upgrades.

By mining cobblestones from nearby stone blocks, players can obtain stone tools that are more durable and effective. However, for particularly adventurous players, going underground and mining iron is much more useful.

After smelting raw iron into iron ingots, players can craft iron toolswhich have enhanced block breaking capabilities and will last for quite a while.

Early game armor is somewhat limited, but if players have a surplus of leather or iron ingots, they can craft leather/iron armor for additional defense.

Minecraft worlds can be dangerous and players will want to be prepared to avoid as much damage as possible.


5) Perimeter lighting

It’s important to illuminate the shelter with torches or other light sources, but expanding outside isn’t a bad idea either.

After the Minecraft’s Caves & Cliffs update, the spawning of hostile mobs was reworked to require a light level of zero to spawn dangerous entities. Standard torches provide a light level of 14, keeping bad guys within their radius at bay.

Since torches have a solid range that clears out hostile mob spawns, it’s not a bad idea to place them spaced apart from each other around one’s settlement. This should ensure that players aren’t blindsided by zombies, skeletons, or creepers while going about their business.


6) Look for towns

Though towns are subject to the Minecraft world generation, finding one can be invaluable for a new player. Not only do they provide food and shelter, but the villagers are also willing to trade with outsiders for items and emeralds. While trading, villagers with professions will be able to level up their experience and offer better items and offers.

Villages also have different crafting blocks to use if players don’t have any. Loot chests can also be found at many villager workstations, and they won’t even care if players stop by and “borrow” the items and blocks they’ve hidden.


7) Don’t be afraid to explore

Minecraft worlds have various biomes filled with different materials and items. Within these biomes, players can find spawned structures. These structures range from shipwrecks and pyramids to ruined temples and nether portals. Each structure has its own degree of danger, and often have great items to loot.

As long as a newcomer to Minecraft is equipped with a weapon and some armor, they shouldn’t be afraid to check out a spawned structure if they find one. They might find some incredibly useful loot along the way.
