A material stronger than diamond
Pure netherite—the strongest, most durable material in Minecraft—is no more. Piglins mined it all out. Now the only way to obtain it is by salvaging netherite scrap from ancient debris.
Prepare to battle or barter with the piglins
Piglins can be grumpy, though are willing to trade items if you bring the right goods. Stay on their good side if you can!
Or hunt them!
The snoutiest, tastiest mob in Minecraft! Keep away from the hoglins, or hunt them if you dare. Approach them with caution.
