The Nether is the second dimension of Minecraft, which is filled with strange mobs, lava, and other resources that the overworld does not have. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best items to farm in the Nether in Minecraft.

1. Blaze rods

Blaze rods are items exclusively obtained from blazes. They act as an essential ingredient in brewing, as a fuel for both brewing and smelting, and for crafting the eye of ender that leads the player to the End.

To create the valuable regeneration potion, players need to farm a lot of blaze powder.

When killed by a player or tamed wolf, a blaze has a 50% chance to drop a blaze rod. The Looting enchantment can increase the drops by one per level, for a maximum of 4 blaze rods. To farm blaze rods, players just need to locate a blaze spawner in a Nether Fortress.

2. Ghast tears

Ghast tears are brewing items that players need to create Mundane and Regeneration potions, one of the most commonly used potions in the game. They can also be used to create Ender Crystals.

Players can also farm Gunpowder from Ghast

Ghasts drop 0–1 ghast tears. Looting increases the maximum ghast tears dropped by one per level, for a maximum of 4 ghast tears with Looting III. Looting also works when knocking back a fireball with an enchanted item.

3. Wither Skeleton skulls

These are important items that allow players to summon the Wither, Minecraft's hidden final boss. There is a 2.5% chance for a Wither Skeleton to drop its skull when killed by a player or tamed wolf. The looting enchantment increases the chance of dropping by a small percentage.

Wither Minecraft
The Wither is the most powerful enemy in the game.

This is one of the more annoying mobs in the Nether, as it inflicts the Wither effect on attacks. This turns the health bar black and deals 1 damage every two seconds, similarly to Poison, except that it can kill.

4. Ender pearls

An ender pearl is an item dropped by Enderman used to teleport and to make an eye of ender. An eye of ender is a craftable item used to locate strongholds and activate the end portals within them. To move to the next dimension, having this item is a must.

Ender Pearl also has certain other benefits, such as locating strongholds and creating Eyes of Enders

Endermen have a 50% chance to drop 1 ender pearl when killed. The drop is increased by 1 per level of Looting, with a maximum of 4 with Looting III.

5. Ancient Debris

The main source for netherite in the Minecraft world is ancient debris. It is a rare blast-resistant block found in the Nether that can be smelted into Netherite Scraps. These items in turn can be used to turn your diamond gears into Netherite, the highest tier.
