Where to Find Redstone in Minecraft Legends

In Minecraft, you typically use Redstone to make peculiar contraptions ranging from secret entrances to entire minigames. I remember, over ten years ago, happily celebrating building my first TNT cannon! In Minecraft Legends, while it has a similar function, you can do a lot more with it. From spawning new units to creating unique buildings, Redstone is one of the most important resources in the game! If you want to learn more, continue reading to discover where to find Redstone in Minecraft Legends.

You’ll have to take a few crucial steps before unlocking Redstone in the Overworld. First, you’ll have to progress far enough into the campaign to unlock the “Gather Iron” improvement. In short, you’ll have to save some villages and defeat Piglin outposts before visiting the Well of Fate. Upon going to the Well of Fate and making the iron improvement, your other resource ones will appear, including the Redstone one. You can also use a similar strategy to unlock and find coal in Minecraft Legends.

From here, you’ll have to save up 100 stone and prismarine to build the Redstone improvement. You can get some stone by venturing into the wild and gathering it, while prismarine is a reward you’ll obtain from defeating Piglin bases. After collecting enough supplies, head back to the Well of Fate and build your Redstone improvement near one of the hubs!

If you’re in PvP instead, don’t worry; the process doesn’t differ too much. Once you spawn in, you and your teammates can gather resources and build improvements, allowing you to unlock new ones and gain team-wide buffs.

Finding Redstone in the Overworld

Now that you’ve built the Gather Redstone improvement, it’s time to get some! An easy way to get some Redstone quickly is by travelling to a village that produces some. Over time, they generate Redstone and other resources you can collect by interacting with their reward chests.

However, searching in the Overworld is the main way you’ll find Redstone. By exploring swamps and jungles, you’ll spot large Redstone veins, shown by stones with bright red patches. Use your newly-obtained Redstone Allay to place a chest down, allowing your Allays to gather the resource for you! If you find that you’re running out of them at any point, be sure to check out how to get more Allays in Minecraft Legends for some help on recruiting more.

What is Redstone Used For?

There are two incredibly important uses for Redstone in Minecraft Legends. The first is to spawn zombies into your army, providing you with a tanky frontline unit to help your backline stay alive! For each zombie you want to recruit, you’ll need two Redstone and lapis, so be sure to stock up if you plan on unleashing hordes of them!

Another important use is for various advanced structures, particularly the Redstone Launcher. This powerful tower launches explosives toward your foes, allowing you to remove buildings and groups of enemies quickly. You also need Redstone to build a battle drum, a support structure that buffs your arrow towers, launchers and traps.

In short, if you want some new favorite weapons in the game, grab some Redstone ASAP.
