Have you laid waste to the ender dragon, seen just about everything Minecraft has to offer and are on the hunt for something new and exciting to do in Minecraft?
Well, have you considered building an underwater utopia that doubles as a home base?
You may be thinking that this can’t be possible as your character can’t breathe underwater and in normal circumstances, you would be right.
However, with the use of a conduit, you’ll be able to mine and build underwater to your heart’s content.
What is a Conduit?
In a nutshell, a conduit is a resource that can be used to help you conquer the sea.
This resource helps you breathe underwater, ward off foes such as temple guardians and can also provide buffs on land if it is raining, provided you are within the affected area provided by the conduit.
The conduit also helps you see further when underwater and also allows you to mine faster as well.
In short, this is a resource that makes you as effective a survivor as you would be on land and opens up tonnes of new building possibilities.
How to Build a Conduit
You’ll need to find the materials needed to build the conduit and the first you need to focus on is the Heart of the sea.
- Step one: Scour the sea, find a shipwreck and then hopefully acquire a treasure chest from within.
- Step two: Next, use the treasure map to find the point on the map where the material is located. Then when you arrive, dig until you acquire the Heart of the Sea.
- Step Three: You will need the second material which is Nautilus shells. These can only be acquired by killing Drowned. These enemies live underwater so start your search there. You will need to acquire eight shells to build the conduit, so be on the lookout for Drowned holding these shells in particular, as they always drop a nautilus shell.
- Step Four: Once you have gathered all these materials, simply use the crafting table to build the conduit. You will need to place the heart of the sea in the middle and then place the eight nautilus shells around the heart.
If you follow this guide, you should have successfully crafted a conduit and you will be one step closer to ruling the sea.
Although, bear in mind that this resource works only as an underwater torch on its own and you will need to combine this resource with prismarine blocks to see the full effect.
