Minecraft is a very fun but complex game to learn. With so many different events and strategies, you’ll keep on guessing for hours and hours just making the next move. Luckily, We have provided you the basic tricks and strategies for you to survive the mysteries of the Minecraft World.

Crafting is one of the basic methods in playing Minecraft. It involves combining a series of items to create a more useful item. There are so many different crafting items to help you; from mining, farming, transportation, and even battling monsters. But in order for you to do so, you must first collect the necessary ingredients required. Once you have collected all of them, you can now start crafting.

For those who don’t know where to start crafting. You can access it in your inventory and there you’ll see the crafting grid with the size of 2×2. This is mainly used for crafting basic items like sticks and wooden planks. For more complex crafting, there is a grinding table that lets you craft items in a 3×3 grid, but it will require you to craft the table first.
