How To Get Crying Obsidian in Minecraft [2024]

How To Get Crying Obsidian in Minecraft [2024]

The Nether update brought about a plethora of new changes. It’s signaled the upswing of new content that has come to Minecraft since it was released.

One of the more important parts of the update was the inclusion of Crying Obsidian. Crying Obsidian only has one use, but it’s a big one.

It lets you create a Respawn Anchor. Respawn Anchors allow you to set respawn points in the Nether.

If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a Ghast fireball while wearing a full set of enchanted diamond, I don’t need to tell you how powerful this new item is.

You would think that Crying Nether would be hard to obtain, but it really isn’t.

How To Find Crying Obsidian in Minecraft

There are three different methods you can use to find Crying Obsidian in Minecraft:

  • Inside chests in Bastion Remnants
  • By trading with Piglins
  • Ruined portal

Trying to get the block from Bastion Remnants is your worst option. The loot pool for the structures are too big to reliable get the amount that you need.

Ruined portals, while difficult to find, have a 15% chance of spawning Crying Obsidian instead of regular Obsidian.

However, Piglins have a 10% chance of giving you between 1-3 blocks every time you trade them a gold ingot. This is the easiest method by far to get your hands on some.
