Experience points (XP) are gained by players in Minecraft by performing tasks like killing mobs, mining ores, and smelting items. Once they have enough points, their experience level will go up by one. Using these levels, players can enchant their items on the enchanting table.
For those unaware, enchanting is an excellent feature in Minecraft which allows players to improve their tools, weapons, and armor. If the player is looking to obtain a lot of experience points in a short period of time, one of the best things to do is create an experience bank.
Step-by-step guide to making an experience bank in Minecraft
- Six chests
- Twenty-four hoppers
- Seven furnaces
- Nine levers
- Thirty rails
- Eighteen powered rails
- Two minecarts with chests
- Any fuel
- Building blocks
Step 1: Dig a 1x10 hole which is one block deep. On one side of the hole, dig a 1x3 hole which needs to be two blocks deep. Place three double chests in that hole on top of each other.
Step 2: Make a staircase granting the player access to the double chests. Then place three hoppers going into each chest and form a train of hoppers connected to each other, as shown above.
Step 3: Create a basic structure using any solid block as shown above.
Step 4: Place seven furnaces on all the hoppers. Then place a lever on each one of the furnaces and turn all the levers on. Place two hoppers going into each furnace from above and behind. Connect seven more hoppers to them as shown.
Step 5: Make the structure shown above using any solid block on the other side of the chests.
Step 6: Create the same pattern using rails and powered rails as shown above. Place three levers from where they can power the rails. Place a minecart with a chest on the inner rails filled with fuel and a minecart chest on the outer rails filled with items such as cactus to smelt.
To use the farm, players need to power the minecarts using the lever. Minecarts will now deliver the items to the furnace. Once smelted, players can collect the item and the experience points.
