The Warden is the newest boss added to the Deep Dark as part of the 1.19 update. It is the strongest mob in the game so far, with punches that deal 30 damage and a ranged attack that bypasses shields. Therefore, carrying the right item to fight it is very important.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 8 useful items for fighting wardens in Minecraft 1.19.

1. Potion of Instant Healing

Potion of healing is one of the most useful potions in the game, keeping players safe during combats and world explorations. Using a potion of healing at the right time can save your life from dangers. There are 2 levels of this potion that heal 4 and 8 HP respectively.

Potions of Instant Healing are useful in both PVE and PVP.

The Warden usually can kill you with one or two attacks, so a potion of instant healing can usually give you a bit of extra time. To brew potions of healing, players need awkward potions and glistening melon slices. Afterward, they can add glowstone dust to amplify its effect to level 2.

2. Totem of Undying

If you have a slow reaction and are afraid of getting instantly killed by the Warden, holding a Totem of Undying in your hand is a good idea. By doing this, players would be able to avoid death once.

Upon activation, the Totem of Undying restores half a heart of HP, removes all existing status effects, then grants 40-45 seconds of Regeneration II, depending on the version. Players also get 5 seconds of Absorption II and 40 seconds of Fire Resistance I as well. Lastly, an animation shows the totem of undying will appear in front of players' screen.

3. Power V bow

Melee combat is not recommended as the Warden hits really hard. Therefore, a bow with Power V is a must-have. It is the main enchantment you need to get for your arrows to actually deal damage.

Power increases arrow damage by 25% × (level + 1), rounded up to nearest half-heart. Overall, the damage difference between levels I, III and V is massive, especially on a Full Charge critical shot. This is why getting Power up is the most important thing you need to do aside from Infinity.

4. Netherite armor with Protection IV

Netherite items are more powerful and durable than diamond. Each piece of diamond armor provides two toughness points for a total of eight, while Netherite sports three points per armor piece for a grand total of 12.

There are a lot of steps to upgrade your gears to netherite tier.

With the Warden being the most dangerous mob in the game, having a full Netherite Armor set is required if you want to kill it safely. This should prevent it from one-shotting the player with just a single punch.

To get Netherite gears, players need to find Ancient Debris, smelt Ancient Debris to get Netherite Scraps, craft Netherite Ingots, then use the Ingots to upgrade a diamond item into its netherite version.

5. Enchanted Golden Apple

The Enchanted Golden Apple is the best food in Minecraft since it can offer much more than Hunger and Saturation. It is quite a luxury food item in Minecraft. To find Enchanted Golden Apple, you need to look for chests across the world in dungeons, mineshafts, desert temples, underwater ruins, bastion remnants.

While their Hunger and Saturation value is not high at all, they give players various buffs that are super useful in PvP situations in a multiplayer server. When eaten, they give 8 hearts of absorption protection, fire resistance 1, resistance 1, and regeneration 2. This is why the item is so useful when fighting bosses such as the Warden.

6. Potion of Night Vision

With the Deep Dark region getting added to Minecraft 1.19, players can now explore the deep dark underbelly of the Minecraft world. The Deep Dark biome is going to have nearly no light, and its resident the Warden can even inflict a special Darkness status to make it even darker.

This is where the Potion of Night Vision comes in. Drinking this potion gives players night vision for a specific duration. This counteracts the Warden's ability, allowing players to function normally in the dark.

7. Swift Sneak gear

Swift Sneak is a non-renewable enchantment that can be applied to leggings and allows the player to walk more quickly while sneaking. It increases the player's speed while crouching by 15% per level. At Swift Sneak level 3, the player's crouch speed equals 75% of their normal walking speed. This enchantment is crucial if players want to avoid the Warden.

Swift Sneak can be increased to level 5 with console commands, with level 5 being the same as walking speed.

This is an exclusive enchantment of the Deep Dark biomes. Players can only find Swift Sneak enchanted books in the giant creepy structures in the underground ancient cities.

8. Potion of Strength

The strength potion is the easiest method of buffing damage, allowing players to mow down dangerous mobs when exploring. Players might need some more damage if they plan on attacking the warden with a melee weapon.

Players can also use this potion in PVP

The best part about the Strength potion is that it is rather easy to craft, with the only requirement being nether wart and blaze powder. Players can create it as soon as they hit the Nether. While nether wart is easy to get, acquiring blaze powder can be tricky as it requires players to kill blazes.
