How to make Netherite Armor in Minecraft

Netherite armor is an item which can be crafted in Minecraft with the Nether update. If you wish to survive against tough enemies, Netherite Armor is one of the most potent, sturdy, and long-lasting pieces of armor in the game.

It takes the rare item – Netherite Ingot, to upgrade existing Diamond armor to Netherite Armor. To collect all the required items, you need to keep farming in the Nether.  All of the enchantments you have on the Diamond armor will remain the same in the upgraded version. Mending is the only enchant that is no longer compatible with Netherite.

You need one Netherite Ingot to convert your Diamond armor to Netherite. Netherite Scraps are required to create a Netherite ingot. Furthermore, you need Ancient Debris to create Netherite Scraps. To start mining for Ancient Debris, explore deep into the Nether. It is quite rare and mostly discovered at y level 15.
