Ancient debris will be coming in the new 1.16 Nether Update to Minecraft.

It can be obtained by using beds to blow up the surroundings and locate it easier. The best way to find it is by going to y = 15 as that is where it is concentrated the most.


Using a diamond pickaxe with Efficiency V, Mending, Unbreaking III and Fortune III, the player can instamine the netherrack going in one direction until they hit lava and turning. The mending and unbreaking III is important because it helps with the durability. No beds or TNT are needed for this method, which makes the only resource needed other than tools to be food. This method allows you to go about 60 blocks per second. The best-known usage of this method retrieved the player 67 ancient debris in one hour. The player can mend their pickaxe by mining the quartz found along the way (Fortune may help if you want to get more quartz). This allows for the player to mine for ancient debris for as long as they have food. Potions of Fire Resistance are recommended, but not required. Also, the player should mark the coordinates of where they started mining so they can easily find their way back.

Players can also blow up large amounts of netherrack by utilizing beds, which blow up in the nether and do not cost a lot of resources, especially of one has a wool or wood farm, although this method can be dangerous.
