Rebirth of the Night introduces new and unique concepts, different to Vanilla Minecraft.


It is good practice to always check JEI for recipes and descriptions before referring to this wiki.

On the bottom-right of the inventory screen there is a search bar, similar to the one found in Vanilla creative mode. Use this to search for desired information about items/blocks. You can select the search results on the right-hand side to expand any information.

Version 3.0[edit]

Chopping wood[edit]

In version 3.0 and later, punching trees is no longer an effective way of harvesting wood. You can instead create the crude axe for felling trees and creating planks. Planks are created by either chopping logs with an axe or normally in a crafting table.

To chop logs into planks, simply place the log block down and right-click with your axe equipped. The first chop removes the bark, resulting in bark and a debarked log. Futher chopping the debarked log will drop planks.

Mining stone[edit]

The first pickaxe you can naturally obtain is the stone pickaxe, which can be crafted with either flint or cobblestone via the 3x3 crafting table.

Tools, especially pickaxes, have different harvest levels and mining speeds. This is the same concept as in Vanilla Minecraft. See the Tool Comparison Chart.

Earlier versions[edit]

Just like in version 3.0, stone tools can be made with cobblestone. Cobblestone can be created with four rocks on a 2x2 grid. Cobblestone can be used with sticks to make stone tools like in regular Vanilla mincraft, it also does not matter which variation of cobble you use.

The First Day - Making a base[edit]

You have about 20 minutes to prepare before the first night approaches. Before then, you must always be on the lookout for good base locations. Remember, mobs will breach your base if it's not in a good location. You should create an initial wall around your base that's at least 10 or so blocks away from the base. Make sure you put torches on the inside, too. When night approaches, steer clear of the walls and stay close to the center.

Another option is to create an underground base. If you dig far enough down, mobs won't sense you in your base. Just be careful for caves that may be near your base, as the mobs may dig through your walls.

If you choose to live on a mountain or hill, be careful of harpies, who spawn on mountains and other high places.

It is recommended you don't put torches around the entrance of your base until you have enough gear to fight, as zombies investigate light sources, and will alert other zombies if they notice something suspicious. For example, the entrance to an underground base from the surface should not have torches. Another thing to possibly pay attention to is how much noise you are making. Placing blocks and mining will cause nearby mobs to investigate the area. However, this usually isn't a big deal unless you're detonating TNT, or a creeper explodes.

If you've done any of these options, you should be safe for your first night.

You can then start looking at options to expand your settlement.
