As you know, after the release of update 1.17 for Minecraft, many announced blocks, items and mobs at Minecraft Live 2020 were added to the game. And along with this, the developers added not only raw iron but also raw gold in Minecraft, which has its own distinctive features.
Of course, many items and blocks have not yet been properly studied even by those who constantly play Minecraft. Therefore, players who are just starting to get acquainted with the game can become completely confused by the copious amount of content. In this regard, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the guide, which is presented below. The material is intended to provide complete information on raw gold.
Raw Gold Minecraft: Block Review
What is raw gold? Simply put, these are ordinary gold nuggets that fall out of gold ore blocks. Similar items are found in many other games. And now Minecraft is no exception. Externally, raw gold has quite typical shades and shapes. So it is difficult to confuse this material with something else.
Where to find it?
It should be understood that raw gold drops exclusively from blocks of gold ore. In this regard, in order to find these nuggets, you need to know where to look for blocks. On the other hand, block generation has not changed since the update, so you need to dig at a height level from 0 to 31 blocks.
However, if we are talking about wastelands, where there are always a lot more gold blocks, then here you need to dig at a level from 0 to 80 blocks. Blocks of gold ore will be generated in clusters. In turn, clusters include up to 9 blocks.
How to mine and with what tool?
In the process of mining ordinary blocks of gold ore or deep, 1 piece of raw gold will fall out. At the same time, at least an iron pickaxe is used. However, that’s not all: raw gold is influenced by the name ” Luck “. And with each level of this enchantment, the number of gold nuggets dropped out increases by 1 unit, that is, at the maximum level of enchantment, 4 pieces of raw gold will fall out. In addition, if you enchant a pickaxe with Silk Touch , then gold ore will drop as a result.
How to process raw gold in Minecraft?
This process in the case of raw gold is no different from many other materials. It is still required that the character carry a furnace and consumables as fuel. In the latter case, suitable: boards, wooden blocks, sticks, coal, charcoal, coal block, etc. In general, the process itself looks like this, if suddenly something still remains unclear:
In what crafts is it used?
In fact, raw gold does not have a lot of different crafting recipes. Because these items are used to create gold bars and raw gold blocks. On the other hand, if this is what you are interested in, then below are the recipes for crafting:
How to get through the admin?
The easiest way to get unlimited raw gold is through admin mode (aka developer mode). However, before using the command in this mode, we recommend that you make sure that cheats are allowed in the world. Otherwise, the world will have to be created anew. On the other hand, one way or another, you will have to use the following instruction:
- First of all, while in the game, you need to open the developer console – this is done by simply pressing the English key “T”.
- Next, an additional window will open on the screen, where a special building is located below – you should write in it “/give @p minecraft:raw_gold” .
- At the end, it remains only to fix the result and use the command – for this, press the “Enter” key.
However, there are a few more important nuances when entering a command. First, any command must be written without quotes. Secondly, if you want to get a certain number of blocks, then put a “Space” after the command and write down a number (for example, you can write “/give @p minecraft:raw_gold 64” and then the character will receive a stack of raw gold).
And the last thing – if you can’t use the command or administrator mode, then we recommend using the capabilities of the command block. In this case, the command is written inside it and subsequently activated automatically after the signal from the red stone reaches the block. At the same time, the command remains the same and does not change in any way, so otherwise there is nothing complicated – the main command is still written without quotes.
Secrets and tips
- When raw gold was first added to the game, it originally had a different texture. Subsequently, releasing the following updates, the developers replaced the model with another version.
- Most often, gold blocks come across in the territory of the “Upper World” at a level from 5 to 28 blocks. And often, when they are generated in clusters, they have the shape of a cube. On average, each chunk contains about 2 clusters.
- Raw gold will absolutely also attract Piglins in the Nether. Therefore, the mechanic has not changed: they will again try to pick up gold nuggets, they will inspect them for a short time (about 6 seconds), and then put them inside their inventory.
Overall, raw gold is a great addition to Minecraft. Given that gold is, in principle, a useful and important material, now it can be obtained in a fairly large volume thanks to raw gold. Especially if you put the appropriate enchantment on the pickaxe, which again increase the amount of extracted materials. And the mechanics itself, thanks to which the spell now acts on objects dropped from blocks, is an excellent solution.
