Clay has existed in Minecraft since Java Edition’s alpha days, but updates can tweak the location and generation of the block. Players can now find clay in multiple areas and can even create it with mud blocks as of The Wild Update.
While clay can be obtained in various ways in Minecraft, players may be wondering which method is the fastest. This may depend somewhat on the player’s location, but most will agree that there is a definitive way to find clay blocks quickly.
As long as players are near sizable bodies of water, clay shouldn’t be too difficult to find at all. This is due to the way terrain generates in-game. Clay blocks can be found in most locations with enough water.
If Minecraft players want to find clay blocks quickly, they’ll want to search for large bodies of water. This includes lakes and rivers, as well as more robust water-oriented biomes such as beaches, lush caves, and swamps.
As long as there’s a few blocks’ worth of water in one of these biomes, clay has the potential to generate. However, due to lush caves being tricky to find, players may want to stick to searching for clay in oceans and rivers.
How to Spot Clay in a Watery Biome
Follow along with these easy steps to find clay in a watery biome:
In addition, if Minecraft players aren’t quite close to a watery biome, they may still be able to acquire clay blocks through a different method. Specifically, by placing bud blocks on top of a pointed dripstone block, one can essentially “dry out” the mud block and convert it into clay.
This can be particularly helpful if players search for a swamp biome and manage to find plenty of mud, but no clay to speak of. As a matter of fact, it’s even possible to use pointed dripstone to create a clay block farm that will continue to generate clay as long as Minecraft players have mud blocks available.
