Creating your first Minecraft beacon or just looking into the possibility of how to craft this rare and valuable item? A beacon will set you back a pretty penny in resources and time, and there are a ton of materials you’ll need to obtain, which sadly won’t be as easy as sprinting around the world and mining a couple of blocks.

Crafting a Minecraft beacon is an incredibly lengthy process, but the rewards are certainly worth it. You’ll be granted status effects such as speed, jump boost, haste, regeneration, resistance, and strength to yourself and nearby players. When you activate a beacon in the crafting game, it will emit a beam of light into the sky, which can be seen from far away, a flashy sign that you’re the new owner of this dazzling and sought-after item.
