The Recovery Compass, introduced in Minecraft 1.19, serves a unique purpose: it returns the player to the location where they died. For all the good reasons listed above, you should make one of these as soon as you can.
In this guide, we’ll show you the ropes for crafting a Recovery Compass in Minecraft. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to easily locate this item and will instead have to go to some effort to create one on your own.
How to Make a Recovery Compass in Minecraft?
You can craft a recovery compass using the following materials:
- 8 Echo Shards
- 1 Compass
Once you have the above-mentioned items, you have to place the compass in the middle of the crafting grid and surround it with Echo shards.
It only takes 4 Iron Ingots and 1 Redstone Dust to make a regular Compass, which is what you’ll need for this recipe. Since tracking down the Echo Shards could take some time, it’s best to get this step out of the way early.
Where to Find Echo Shards
New to the game in the most recent major patch, Echo Shards can be found exclusively in the game’s Ancient Cities. Check out our Ancient City Survival Guide for information on how to stay alive in these dangerous urban areas, complete with advice on how to avoid being killed by the Warden.
The Recovery Compass, once crafted, can only be used in the same dimension as your last death, or the needle will spin wildly.
Well, that’s all we have here about how players can build a recovery compass in Minecraft. We hope this guide helped you. If you liked this, make sure to check out how you can update Minecraft Realms to 1.19.
