If you are also interested in acquiring the above items, then we have discussed this as well in the next section.

How to Make Sticks

The first thing you will need to make sticks are wooden logs, which you can get by cutting down any tree you can find. You can chop it with your hands or with an axe, which will speed up the process and will provide long-term benefits as well.

After that you need to place a wooden log either in your own crafting grid or you can utilize a crafting table which is highly recommended as you can make all the items using this block. So, when you place a wooden log, you will get 4 wooden planks and if you already don’t have the crafting table in your inventory then you can make one by using these 4 wooden planks.

How to Get Diamonds

There are a few crucial considerations to ponder before embarking on the path of seeking diamonds. The first and most important need is to have an iron pickaxe, especially if you want to mine them; otherwise, locating these diamond ores is pointless. Additionally, when searching for these ores, you may encounter a variety of enemies such as spiders and zombies, necessitating the use of higher protective shields and a sword. Aside from that, you should have food and blocks to refill your energy and allow you to reach higher ground.

After you’ve finished your preparation and believe you’re ready to embark on your diamond hunting journey then you should start looking for caves or tunnels. After that, you must begin excavating between layers 5 and 16, with layer 12 being the most essential and containing most of the diamond ore. If you’re unfamiliar with the idea of a layer, it’s a value of the Y coordinate that you can view by pressing FN + F3 or just F3 on the keyboard.
