Minecraft is an open world sandbox game in which players can do a ton of different things. Advancements are challenges that players can complete by performing specific tasks. Players often get confused between advancements and achievements.

Their difference is that advancements are only available on Minecraft Java Edition, and achievements can only be accomplished in the Bedrock Edition. Some can be challenging and harder to complete, while others are easily achieved by playing the game casually.

This is an advancement that can be completed by activating a beacon in Minecraft. Beacons are craftable blocks that project light upwards and provide status effects like Haste and Regeneration to the player.

This advancement has made its way into this list because players need a nether star to craft a beacon, which can only be obtained by defeating the wither. For those unaware, wither is a mighty boss mob that players can only spawn.


4) Monsters Hunted

The world of Minecraft is almost infinite, and it generates forty-two different biomes in the overworld. Traveling and finding all overworld biomes is how the Adventuring Time advancement can be completed.

Exploring the world is fun, but finding all of the biomes is not an easy task as the chances of players coming across some of the rarest biomes are less than 1%.


2) Sky's the Limit

Sky's the Limit is arguably one of the most challenging advancements in the game. It is completed when a player finds an elytra. Not only will the player have to locate the rare end cities, but to get there, players will have to defeat the Ender dragon.

Redstone engineers can make a flying machine to visit outer islands without defeating the Ender dragon.
