Minecraft Legends brings all sorts of strategic problem-solving to the Minecraft universe for the first time. While the problem-solving of Minecraft as a game comes through its redstone component, Minecraft Legends focuses its problem-solving on how well you can command a small army to take on a superior invasion force. With that, you may be wondering whether you can upgrade the offensive capabilities of your main character. Here’s whether you can upgrade your sword in Minecraft Legends.

Are There Any Sword Upgrades in Minecraft Legends?

At its core, Minecraft Legends focuses on your ability to command an army to victory rather than your combat skills. You might be the hero of this story, but you are just one soldier after all. Because of this focus on strategy over skill, you can’t upgrade the offensive capabilities of your character. The upgrades in the game are geared towards your ability to gather resources, build strong defenses, and create a strong army that can handle whatever task you throw at them.

If you were able to upgrade your character with new armor or weapons, it would diminish the strategy aspects of the game. What would be the point of creating a superior army and defenses if you could just tackle every problem yourself? That might be more annoying for those of you who want to get in there and get your hands dirty, but it’s for the better. Besides, the sword you get from the start of the game is more than capable of killing some foes.

To that end, here’s how you can cure Netherrack in Minecraft Legends.
