Shields are defensive tools that protect the player from the attacks of the opponents.
To make Shield, you’ll need Wood logs, Iron Ore, Iron Ingot using Furnace, Wood Planks. Please follow the following steps to make a Shield.
In order to make a shield, the basic item you need to get is any kind of wood log. Go towards the forest and chop down any of the trees using your iron axe to get at least 2 wood logs.
The next required item that you need to find is iron ore. Equip your stone pickaxe and get at least one iron ore block. You will find some under the ground.
Iron Ingot using Furnace
Now you need to use the furnace to get iron ingot as you have iron ore in stock. Go towards the furnace to add coal and an iron ore block in it. Add one iron ore in the upper box and coal in the lower box to get iron ingot in the right-side box of the furnace. Bring this iron ingot in your “ready to use” stock.
After that, you need to make wood planks from wood blocks that you have collected. Move to the crafting table just next to the furnace and add wood blocks in any cell of 3*3 crafting grid to get wood planks in the right-side box of the crafting table. One wood block will convert into 4 wood planks. Bring these wooden planks into inventory.
Shield with Iron Ingot
Add wood planks and iron ingot in 3*3 crafting grid in the same way as shown in the following image, add 2 wood planks and iron ingot in the first row where the iron ingot should take the middle position and three wood planks in the second row and one wood plank at the middle cell of the third row.
You will get a shield in the right-side box of the crafting table. Add it into your “ready to use” stock. You can equip this shield from inventory.
