Achievements are a way to gradually guide new players into Minecraft and give them challenges to complete. By following and completing them, players would get to know all the systems in the game. However, doing this is not an easy task, as there are a lot of hard advancements in the game that would take a lot of effort to complete.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 hardest-to-get achievements in Minecraft 1.19.

1. The Beaconator

  • Activate a beacon

Beacons are considered the best among end-game treasures. It provides multiple boosts to all nearby players. It can be made by assembling five pieces of glass, three obsidian, and a nether star at a crafting table. The tricky part is that you need to kill the Wither to get the nether star.

Activating a beacon is one of the hardest achievements in Minecraft.

It is also pretty hard to activate the Beacon as well. You will need to build a pyramid made from Iron Blocks. A whopping 164 blocks to are needed to build and fully empower the beacon. Furthermore, you'll need to place the Iron Blocks in a perfect pyramid shape.

2. Star Trader

  • Trade with a Villager at the build height limit

This advancement requires players to stand on any block that is higher than 318 and trade with Villager or Wandering Trader. This means players need to build a tower and a bubble elevator to push the villager to the top, which is super tedious.

Building such a tall elevator is extremely boring.

3. With Our Powers Combined!

Froglights are rare light blocks created when a frog eat a small magma cube. The color of froglight blocks is based on the frog used to spawn them.

Froglights in Minecraft has the highest light level in the game.

To complete this advancement, players need to get three buckets of tadpoles and use them to create frogs in temperate (plains, river, beach), cold (ice, deep dark) and warm (jungle, badland, desert) biomes. After getting all three frog colors, feed them magma cubes to spawn different froglight blocks.

Overall, most of the effects can be acquired via Suspicious Stew, potions, or food. Amongst them, only Bad Omen, Darkness, Hero of the Village, Mining Fatigue, Levitation, and Wither are tricky.

To have both Bad Omen and Hero of the Village at the same time, you need to kill a raid captain, trigger and defeat a raid for the Hero effect then kill another one. Before this, transport a Shulker to the overworld using a boat, pen Dolphins for Dolphin's Grace, and plant a Wither Rose/summon a wither. Additionally, players need a sculk shrieker to trigger its Darkness effect as well.

5. Adventuring Time

6. Monsters Hunted

This achievement also requires players to kill both boss mobs.

7. Caves & Cliffs

  • Fall from the top of the Overworld to the bottom... and survive.

While this might sound easy, the process is actually pretty tedious. Cave and Cliffs part 2 update in Minecraft 1.18 expands the Minecraft world's vertical dimension, in order to accommodate a lot of the new biomes.

The Y-axis is going to increase by 64 blocks in both directions, creating a total vertical building range of 384 blocks, up from 256 blocks. In terms of the in-game coordinates, that’s from y-64 to y320. This means you have to build a tower to the highest coordinate possible (y320) and dig a hole to the lowest depth possible (y-64) next to it. Afterward, jump from the top of the tower into the hole. Place a few blocks of water at the bottom to cushion your fall

8. Arbalistic

  • Kill five different mobs with one shot using a crossbow

Firstly, players need to get a crossbow from either looting or crafting and enchant it to at least Piercing IV so that the arrows can hit 5 targets.

Arbalistic is a pretty crazy challenge, but not improbable as long as you prepare.

Afterward, assemble a group of 5 peaceful mobs like cow, chicken, llama...etc and place them between two walls. Build them in so that they can't move around to ruin your aim. Hit the bigger mobs like cow a few times so that their HP is low enough for a single crossbow shot... and line up your shot to get the advancement.
