Have you ever wanted to build an underwater house or building in Minecraft but fail to achieve that? Well, there are so many factors that can prevent you from doing so. When we dive deep into the water, we lose the ability to see anything due to the lack of light, and it is also impossible to breathe without oxygen. Apart from these factors, when the players are underwater in Minecraft, the cold water affects players' ability to mine blocks. Keeping all these factors in mind, it seems almost impossible to build an underwater house until the recent Aquatic update. This update has introduced something that has changed everything completely, the conduit.
Conduit in Minecraft grants players a wide range of features and abilities. It allows you to access the immense power that can help you to breathe underwater, provides you with night vision and a haste status effect. This conduit never lets any underwater mob come closer to it, making it a perfect tool for building your underwater world. It allows you to live underwater without any difficulty or fear of dying. By placing a conduit underwater, you get full access to life underwater, and you can start living like a fish. But the real question is, how to use a conduit in Minecraft, and where can we find it? To know the answer to these questions, keep reading this article till the end.
How to make a conduit Minecraft?
After reading all the details about conduit, you might want to learn how you can get it. Conduit in Minecraft can be made using your crafting table. To build a conduit, you will need eight Nautilus and a Heart of The Sea. Finding the material is the real task. It is very difficult to get both of these items. Although, you can easily find the Nautilus by fishing them up, buying them from traders, or acquiring them from the drowned. But the actual challenge is to find the Heart of The Sea. It can only be found in treasure chests buried underground. Once you successfully get both of these items, you can create a conduit by placing the Heart of the Sea in the middle of the Crafting table and surround it with Nautiluses. It will create a Conduit. Now you have successfully created a Conduit and it is ready to be activated.
How to Use a Conduit in Minecraft
To use it, you can't just place it in the water and wait for it to be activated automatically. To activate the conduit, you have to place it into a frame. For that, you have to create a frame using Prismarine. The power and the range of the conduit depend upon the frame you place it in. For better results, you have to make a good and large frame for the conduit.
To start building the frame for conduit, find a suitable location underwater. Decide the location by keeping in mind the effect and range of the conduit to utilize the power of the conduit fully. Once you have successfully selected the location to build the conduit on, proceed with building the frame.
Create the base for the frame with the help of 9 Prismarine blocks in the form of a Plus "+" sign. Different types of Prismarine blocks are used in this example to help you understand it better, but it is not necessary. You can simply use one type of block as well.
At each end of the "+" sign, build a pillar for 4 blocks. But it can be extended to the limit of 42 blocks. For every 7 blocks of Prismarine, the range of conduit increases by 16 blocks.
Join the pillars from above to close the frame to just the base of the frame. It will require you 5 blocks to join the pillars.
Now close the sides of the frame by joining them at the intersection with the help of three blocks on all of the four sides.
Finally, we have to place the conduit in the center of the frame. To do that, first of all, we have to add a temporary block at the base of the frame, so that the conduit should be placed at the center. After placing a block in the frame at the base, place the conduit on it. After that remove the block. Congratulations! The conduit is successfully activated.
Now all the players that come near the conduit will be given the special conduit power status effect. But it is important to be near the conduit in order to have this special status. It will provide you with this special power under a radius of 32 to 96 blocks, depending upon the frame you have built. You can set up as many conduit frames as you want underwater to have an unlimited range of conduit power.
After learning how to use a conduit in Minecraft, you build it anywhere underwater and get advantages of this conduit. It will kill all the mobs that try to come near it and let you live underwater without any damage or fear of your health being damaged. Now you can have a full vision underwater, no matter how deep you dive in the water. So now you can start building your houses and have a new underwater life with conduit Minecraft.
