Where to find diamonds in Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs part 2?
In this article we will show you how to find diamonds easily in the new update of Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs part 2, because as you know the layer 12 is no longer useful to find diamonds in 1.18.
We will show you where to find them and which is the best way to mine.
This new update has mountains and giant caves, changing the location of the diamonds and where they are generated.
Where to mine in minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs part 2?
The lower we are, the more diamonds we will find, but the most efficient layer to find diamonds and in greater quantity is the layer number -59.
As we can see in the following image in version 1.18 the diamonds are generated in the shape of a triangle, and the diamond generation increases as the depth increases.
The -59 layer is the deepest so we must dig in this layer where there will be the most diamonds. At the base of the triangle will be all the diamonds in higher concentration and very close to each other.
You will also find diamonds in the -58 layer, so both layers (-58 and -59) are where most diamonds are generated. Start mining from layer -59 and work your way up to -53.
The advantage of these two layers (-58 and -59) is that all diamonds are very close to each other. The only disadvantage is that in these two layers there is a lot of lava.
What technique to use for mining in Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs part 2?
Now that we know that the largest amount of diamonds is found between layers -58 and -59, you need to know what is the best mining technique for these layers.
The most efficient technique in these two layers, due to the hardness of the materials in these two layers, is the technique of mining a single block wide and two blocks high, in a straight line as shown in the following image.
After finding the first diamonds, keep in mind what we said at the beginning of the article, in these layers (-58 and -59) the diamonds will be very close to each other, so you should start mining around these diamonds.
You can also make tunnels of 3 blocks wide by 3 blocks high but the mining time will increase.
