Top Ten Tips for Beginners in Minecraft

Are you a beginner at Minecraft? Want some basic tips to help you start off? Well then look no further than this list where I'll describe some tips you'll need to know while starting out in Minecraft. Of course, be free to add any tip you feel I missed in the list, and I'll be sure to give it a description if someone else has not already made one.
The Top Ten
1 Never dig straight down

I ALWAYS dig straight down. But please don't. I only dig down because I never learn my lesson.

I used to do this all the time, and I usually landed in lava or a place full of hostile mobs xD.

Then lava will just kill you almost immediately.

What if you fell into a cave of mobs? Or lava?

2 Never take your valuables to the Nether

I've lost so many good stuff in the Nether because I always forgot to store them. What I do is always bring a chest to the Nether so if you forget to store your stuff before you go you can always just put it in the chest.

I did this once, and I lost all of my iron, gold, and diamonds.

I would just put them in a chest in the normal world.

If you do this, goodbye to your valuables!

3 Bring a shield at all times

Shields are SO USEFUL. They can be life savers. Say you're coming home and are low but a skeleton is shooting you. You can be safe.

You never know when you can get shot by a skeleton.

Yes very important thing to do in minecraft

I'm a noob, and I have trouble getting iron.

4 Bring a fire resistance potion to the Nether

Fall through the floor? Well you brought a fire res potion! Best thing to bring to Nether no matter what the scenario.

I got dunked in lava once. Wish I had brought one of these.

So you don’t burn yourself.

Yes what if you fall in the lava and you bring valuables always bring one or you can also bring a god apple

5 Leave faraway chunks unloaded

What if a new version is coming soon you will want to leave them alone for now

I agree with Techno. What would you do?

6 Write down the coordinates of your house

I just like to set my spawn somewhere, then store my valuables in an ender chest and kill myself.

I get lost all the time, since I usually spawn somewhere with no sand.

This ruins the point of the compass and the lodestone.

What if you lose your house and can’t find it. Always write down the coordinates.

7 Look out for loot in structures

This is important in my opinion because you can get a lot of good stuff in generated structures. Like you could get a enchanted book, or gold, or iron, maybe even diamonds. So I think its really important.

Once, I spawned right next to a jungle temple and got shot by arrows when I went in.

Could be risky, but at the same time rewarding.

Wait what wouldn’t you do this

8 Don't break mob spawners

Really good way of earning XP, if you don't want to earn XP at least light up the area and come back when you do want to.

Yes you always can use it as an infinite mob spawned

I haven't even found one yet.

9 Learn how to MLG water

I can do this now I am the most popular kid in school and everyone simps for me and I got a PS5 and a car and a trillion dollars because of it.

10 Write down the coordinates of your portal.

So you never get lost.

The Contenders
11 Always keep a Totem of Undying in your left hand

This totally just ruins the point of having a shield at all times

if you go to a dangerous place use both shield and this though its not suggested.

12 Get 2 of each friendly mob

Time to breed *Puts on Jazz Music*

So you can infinite breed

13 Once you get wood, craft a wooden pickaxe and skip the other wood tools. Use that wooden pickaxe and mine the cobblestone and you get a stone sword easy peasy.
14 Right click to "use" an item
15 Put a bed in your stronghold and set a respawn point before going into The End

This is definitely a good idea.

16 Take all the wood from a tree
17 Don't go near gravel in the Nether
18 Don’t make light with redstone torches

it wastes it

19 It's faster to use a shovel to mine clay

It is faster but I thought it was faster with a pick.

20 Don’t stay in the water for too long

It's no help mining clay and then drowning.

No one wants to drown.

21 Make a villager breeder and use villagers for armor and other useful things
22 Don't sprint too much

Hunger will go down.

23 Wear a carved pumpkin on your head in The End so the Endermen don't attack you

enderman + no pumpkin + look eye/attack = dead

24 Make sure to bring projectiles in the end fight or you'll have to take out the end crystals by hand
25 When you mine an ore and it will burn, build a fire-proof platform
