Minecraft – How To Make A Conduit

Learn how to make a Conduit in Minecraft from this guide.

Minecraft is a mix of a Sandbox & a Survival game. You can do whatever you want but you will have constantly survive by battling different enemies. To aid you in these fights, Minecraft has special blocks that can provide certain Boosts. Those Blocks come in the form of the Beacon & the Conduit. Both of them emit an Aura in a certain radius that provides various status boosts to the players. The Beacon is used mainly on land while the Conduit is used primarily underwater. In this guide, I will show you how to make a Conduit in Minecraft.

As I have mentioned above, a Conduit is a Block like the Beacon and emits an Aura that provides a Status boost. It primarily is used in Water and provides the player with the status effects of Water Breathing, Night Vision, and Haste. Along with that, The Conduit in Minecraft protects the Players from hostile Mobs in Water. To make a Conduit, you will need 8 Nautilus Shells & a Heart of the Sea. In the Crafting Table, place the Heart of the Sea in the Center Slot and surround it with the 8 Nautilus Shells. This will make a Conduit. Now that you got one, it is time to activate it.

How to Activate a Conduit


Like the Beacon in Minecraft, we will need to build a structure to activate the Conduit. You will need Prismarine, Dark Prismarine, Prismarine Bricks, or Sea Lantern Blocks. Conduits will only activate if one of these blocks is present in the structure. The idea of building the structure is similar to that of a Nether Portal. You will need to make three 5×5 Frames with the mentioned blocks each oriented along a different axis. Here is how to do it.

  • First, make a 5×5 Frame with the Prismarine Blocks.
  • Now from the Center of the bottom line, go out 2 blocks in the other two directions.
  • It should be a perpendicular line to the first frame.
  • Now from that perpendicular line, connect the corners such that it makes a 5×5 Frame like before.
  • You should end up with two 5×5 frames facing in the X & Z axes intersecting in the middle.
  • Now you have to make the third 5×5 Frame.
  • For that, just connect the Center Block of each vertical beam of both 5×5 Frames.
  • This will make the Third frame.
  • You should end with a cube-like structure with 3 Frames looking in the X, Y, & Z axes.
  • They will share a common center and that is where you will have to place the Conduit.
  • Once it is placed, it will get activated.
  • Note that there should be no other block between the Conduit & the Structure. Any block outside of that will do.
