Blaze rods are items which are dropped by blazes, mobs which are found in or near Nether fortresses and which appear to have these rods as body parts. They are crucial in two aspects of the game; they are essential for brewing potions and are required to efficiently locate strongholds.
When killed by a player or tamed wolf, a blaze may drop a blaze rod. Blazes which are killed by other causes will not drop any blaze rods, making fully automated farms almost impossible.
