Is There Mining in Minecraft Legends?

As far as we know, there is no mining in Minecraft Legends. Instead, you will collect valuable resources from the surface using various techniques.

For example, gold will be farmed by killing piglins or destroying the mining machines in their bases. Diamond will be obtainable in Tundra and Jagged Peak biomes, Coal will be in hiding in Meadow and Badland biomes while Iron will be waiting in Dry Savannah and in Forest biomes.

When it comes to Lapis Lazuli you can easily get it from Piglins, and Village Chests. Acquiring the Shared Chest Upgrade will reward you with even more Lapis. On the other hand, Redstones, a pretty valuable and rare resource won’t be so easy to come by. You would have to fight your way through Jungles and Swamps biomes to get it.

But, you don’t have to grab all these resources on your own. In Minecraft Legends you will be able to recruit Allay helpers that can pick up items for you thus helping you in being more efficient in farming resources.

How to Get Allays in Minecraft Legends?

There are two types of Allays in Minecraft Legends – Build Allay and Gather Allay. Having a Gather Allay can greatly increase your speed in picking up items and resources. You simply give him an item that you want to be picked up and he will start searching. Build Allay will create pre-designed buildings for you and you can improve both of them with time to carry more resources with them.

To increase your efficiency you should get as many Allays as you can. One way of doing that is by building the Abundant Allays improvement (requires 10 gold, 50 Prismarine, and 100 Stone).
