How to build an arch on Minecraft

Craft a bow on Minecraft

If you want to build a bow on Minecraft , the first important thing you need to do is get all the resources necessary to carry out this project. The bow is an essential weapon, which you must get as soon as possible in the world of Minecraft, as it allows you to face enemies from a distance, without risking taking damage from those who launch close attacks.

To make a bow, you need to recover two essential resources: the Staff and the Cord . The latter can easily be obtained by defeating the spiders that you find during the night or in dark places. You can also get it from the cobwebs found in some places existing in the world of Minecraft, such as bookstores in fortresses or mines.

As for the Stick , however, you must first collect wood. To do this, use an ax (or simply bare hands) on a tree, in order to obtain the Wooden Trunks . The latter must be worked on a workbench twice in a row: the first time to obtain the wooden planks and the second time to manufacture the sticks , using 2 units of wooden planks .

After you have obtained everything you need, inside a workbench, add 3 units of Staff and 3 units of Cord , so as to obtain an Arch . The latter must then be inserted into a quick slot on the bottom bar of the inventory, to equip it and use it against enemies.

On the arches you make you can also apply bonuses, through the Spell Books . All you have to do is create one, using the advice I have given you in this guide and infuse the bonus obtained on the bow, using an anvil .

I warn you that, unlike other weapons in Minecraft, the bow requires arrows to be used. If you don’t have any arrows at your disposal, this weapon will be completely useless. You will only be able to use it as a resource for other projects, such as that of the Distributor. For this reason, in the next chapter , I will explain how to make arrows for use with the newly constructed bow.

The arrows are of essential objects to be manufactured, in order to be able to use an arc. There are several types, but for the moment I will explain how to make normal ones.

First, you need to get the following materials: Flint , Stick and Feather . Let’s go in order to explain where to recover each of these materials. As for the Flint , you can easily get it by simply digging in the subsoil. You must know, in fact, that there is a probability, albeit low, that you can get flint when you break a block of stone. You can also find it as a prize inside the trunks scattered around the world of Minecraft.

Il Bastone , on the other hand, is a resource you already know, as I told you about it in detail in the previous chapter . In summary, you need to place 2 units of wooden planks in a workbench. The feathers , on the other hand, can be obtained from chickens, parrots or, even, from foxes. You can also find them in the scattered trunks you find during your adventures.

Now that you have everything you need, open the workbench interface and place 1 Flint unit , 1 Stick unit and 1 Feather unit inside . In this way, you can collect 4 Arrow units from the slot , useful for use with the bow.

Enchanted arrows on Minecraft

Now that you have the arrows for your bow, you need to know that there are variations of the latter, of the enchanted type, which can infuse benefits / malus to the target hit. The enchanted arrows you can create are as follows.

  • Spooky arrow
  • Night vision arrow
  • Invisibility Arrow
  • Jumping arrow
  • Fire resistance arrow
  • Speed ​​arrow
  • Slowness arrow
  • Master turtle arrow
  • Aquatic breathing arrow
  • Care arrow
  • Damage arrow
  • Poisoning arrow
  • Regeneration arrow
  • Strength arrow
  • Weakness arrow

All the arrows that I have listed to you in the preceding lines can be obtained easily, soaking the latter in the respective potions. Only the Spectral Arrow can be created without the use of a potion: all you need is 1 unit of Arrow and 4 units of Luminite Powder , to be inserted in a workbench.

For all the other arrows, however, as I anticipated, a specific potion is needed. In this regard, what you need to do is to make Persistent Potions in an Alembic. You must know that there are many different types of potions on Minecraft and their effect may undergo alterations based on the type of potion that is used.

In general, all potions are made from water ampoules . When this is reacted together with a Nether Wart , a Strange Potion is generated , which is the basis for creating the different alchemical solutions.

After you add the appropriate reagent, it will be transformed into a specific potion. To give you an example, if you mix a Golden Carrot in an Alembic with a Strange Potion , you will get a Night Vision Potion .

The potion you get from the first mix can be enhanced by continuing to mix it with other reagents. Using Gunpowder , you will get the Throwing Potion . By continuing to mix with the Dragon’s Breath , you will obtain the Persistent Potion . It is precisely this last potion that you will need to dip the arrows with the effect you want to apply. When you have obtained the Persistent Potion , all you have to do is place it on a workbench, along with 8 Arrow units .

The fundamental problem is to be able to find the Dragon Breath . This resource can only be obtained by collecting the fire that releases the End Dragon . Therefore, to be able to make enchanted arrows, you must be able to reach and, therefore, face this dragon in the best way. In this regard, you can read the tips that I have given you in this guide of mine , to find out how to find this creature.

I warn you that a bow can be enchanted with the Infinity bonus . The latter is very useful so that the bow can shoot infinite arrows, without you having to worry about having to always create new ones. This bonus, however, does not apply to enchanted arrows and the latter will be consumed regardless of whether the Infinity bonus is active on the bow.

How to fix a bow on Minecraft

Repair an arch on Minecraft

As you use a bow, it will wear out. You can view its status through the bar that is located just below its icon: the higher the wear level, the lower the status bar of the bow. If this bar drops completely, the bow will be destroyed, losing it completely.

In general, there is no point in repairing a simple arch, as a new one can easily be built. However, the situation is different for the enchanting bows, so you risk losing the bow completely with a good bonus.

In this regard, to restore a damaged arch, you must necessarily perform its repair. How? Simple: all you have to do is insert the damaged bow into an Anvil together with another in good condition, in order to transfer the state of the latter to the main arch. It was easy, wasn’t it?
