The Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update is finally here in the form of Minecraft 1.18 Update. With this update, a lot of changes were made to the game along with the Ore Distribution and Generation within the ground. There was also the introduction of new Blocks and Ores. In today’s guide, I will show the best Ores to mine in the Minecraft 1.18 Update: Caves & Cliffs Part 2.

Best Ores To Mine In Minecraft 1.18 Update Caves & Cliffs Part 2

copper and amethyst

The Minecraft 1.18 update marks the complete integration of the Caves & Cliffs update. In this update, there were many Block additions & new Mobs in the 1.17 Update and World Generation changes in the 1.18 Update. Of those Block additions, some of them were Ores, most notably Copper. If I had to say which is the best Ore to mine in Minecraft 1.18 Update then I would say Diamonds from the Overworld and Ancient Debris from the Nether. And if you are considering to speedrun Minecraft then Iron is the best Ore to mine.

Copper & Amethyst in Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update

Even though Copper Ore and Amethysts were introduced in the Caves & Cliffs update, they don’t bring much to the competitive side of Minecraft. Rather they come in use for other areas of the game. Aside from its aesthetic use, Copper is used in 3 Crafting recipes. Those are the Copper Block, Spyglass, and Lightning Rod. Spyglass is used when you need to see far places from a safe distance. By taking an Amethyst and 2 Copper Ingots in a Crafting Table you can make the Spyglass. The Lightning Rod is made with 3 Copper Ingots arranged in a vertical line in the Crafting Table. You can use it to make Lightning Witch Farms and Supercharged Creeper Farms, aside from protecting your base from Lightning.

Amethyst is a beautiful Ore that is used to make Spyglasses and Tinted Glass. As mentioned above, Spyglasses are pretty useful. Tinted Glass Blocks are the only Transparent/Translucent Block that can block light. You can make one by surrounding a Glass Block with 4 Amethyst Shards in a Crafting Table.

Considering the new Ores in the Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs Part 2 Update did not add a significant Ore that changes the game competitively, The best Ores to mine have remained the same as before.
