Haste is a status effect which increases mining and attack speed. Negative levels will decrease mining and attack speed, similar to Mining Fatigue.


Cause Potency Length Notes
Beacon set to Haste I 0:05 - 0:17 Replenishes when in range.
Beacon set to Haste II II 0:17 Replenishes when in range. Requires beacon pyramid level 4.
Conduit Power - indefinite Area effect 32-96 blocks radius from an activated conduit, depending on activation level.

Immune mobs[edit]

Boss mobs are immune to Haste.[more information needed] Most mobs, while not immune, are unaffected by Haste as they cannot mine blocks.[more information needed]

Instant mining[edit]

With Haste and Efficiency, it is possible to mine some blocks instantly. Below are listed the Efficiency and Haste levels neccessary to instant-mine a block.

Efficiency Enchantment/Haste Effect Level Blocks instant mined
Unaffected by Efficiency/Haste
Efficiency 5 + Haste 2 Golden Pickaxe Glazed Terracotta
Efficiency 5 + Haste 2
Efficiency 5 + Haste 1 Terracotta
Efficiency 4
Efficiency 3
Efficiency 2
Efficiency 5 + Haste 2 Axe Bookshelf
Efficiency 5 Axe
Efficiency 3 Axe Wooden Pressure Plates
Efficiency 2 Axe
Iron Axe
Efficiency 4 Shovel
Efficiency 3 Shovel
Iron Shovel Snow
Stone Shovel Top Snow
Shears Leaves


With commands, much higher levels of haste may be applied. Using these (or other mods that allow higher levels), the following blocks are instant-breakable.

Efficiency Enchantment/Haste Level Blocks instant mined
Efficiency 5 + Haste 3 Concrete
Efficiency 5 + Haste 4
Efficiency 5 + Haste 4 Axe
Efficiency 5 + Haste 7
Efficiency 5 + Haste 7 Axe
Efficiency 5 + Haste 9
Efficiency 5 + Haste 9 Axe
Efficiency 5 + Haste 11
Efficiency 5 + Haste 18
Efficiency 5 + Haste 95 Ender Chest
Efficiency 7 + Haste 127 Obsidian

Interaction with Mining Fatigue[edit]

Mining Fatigue III inflicted by elder guardians prevent the player from breaking any blocks regardless of the Haste effect. However, lower levels of Mining Fatigue can be overcome by Haste of level III or more, with a resultant reduced Haste effect.


  • At levels 3 or higher, the player's arm will not move while mining.
  • It will also decrease the charging time of sweep attack.
  • Alternative methods of increasing mining speed include: the efficiency enchantment.
