Respawn anchors in Minecraft

The respawn anchor is one of Minecraft's most unique blocks. Players can quickly advance in the world and explore the Nether when they enter it. They respawn in the overworld if they die in the hellish realm. Here is where the block comes in.

The terrifying realm of Nether is home to many hostile mobs, lava flows and other scary creatures. The realm has a higher risk of players being injured or killed. Crafting and using the block can greatly assist players.

Although crafting and using the blocks can be difficult, they can help players stay in the realm.

How to make and use respawn anchors for Minecraft

How to make a respawn block

If players have the right materials, they can craft respawn anchors. This block is difficult to craft because it requires hard-to-find items. To craft an anchor, a player will need six Crying Obsidians as well as three Glowstone blocks.

Crying obsidian is found in ruined portals and Bastion Remnants. You can also barter with piglins to find it. Glowstone is found on the Nether ceiling. The block can be made by combining these two ingredients on a crafting table.

How to use the Respawn Anchor

Once the block has been crafted, players may place it in a safe area in the Nether to ensure that they don’t get attacked when they respawn close to it.

The players will then need to charge the block with Glowstone blocks. The block will change in texture and emit a faint glow as the players place the Glowstone blocks. To fully charge the block, it needs four glowstone blocks

The block can now be used in the Nether by players. To set their respawn, players can right-click on the charged block. If a player is killed by lava, hostile mobs, or other causes, they will respawn close to the block. The charge of the block will decrease with each respawn.

If the block is not charged, the player will respawn at the original spawn point.

Respawn anchors explode in the Overworld, just as beds explode when placed in the Nether realm. Although their explosion is not as powerful as an End Crystal, it is much more potent than TNT. The surrounding blocks will be set ablaze by the explosion.
