Minecraft’s Snapshot 20W09A has just dropped, allowing players to check out features coming in the update releasing in the near future. Crying Obsidian is the most notable addition here and is a new type of block and material that players can get their hands on. Here’s how to get Crying Obsidian in Minecraft and what it’s used for.
Getting Crying Obsidian in Minecraft
To get Crying Obsidian, you’ll have to head into the Nether. This is because Crying Obsidian can only be obtained one way in Minecraft, and it involves going to this creepy late game area and doing a spot of trading.
Specifically, you want to trade with a Piglin. This is one of the new mobs added in the most recent updates to Minecraft.
Piglins can only be found in the Nether and will automatically be hostile to you when they see you. To counter this, simply wear some gold armor. Piglin’s love gold, so wearing some will immediately make them a neutral mob.
Once you’ve found a Piglin in the Nether, simply give it a Gold Ingot, or drop it on the floor. After a few seconds of watching the Piglin inspect the Gold Ingot, he’ll throw an item on the floor.
There are a number of different items that it could exchange for the Gold Ingot. Fortunately, Crying Obsidian is one of the most common items for Piglins to drop.
We’ve listed them all with their drop rate below:
- Enchanted Book with Soul Speed (Random level) – 1.18%
- Iron Boots with Soul Speed (Random level) – 1.89%
- Iron Nugget – 2.36%
- Splash Potion of Fire Resistance – 2.36%
- Potion of Fire Resistance – 2.36%
- Nether Quartz – 4.73%
