Emeralds Shower
If you're looking for a guide to getting Emeralds, you've come to the right place! Read on to find all our tips on how to get the glittering green money of Minecraft Dungeons.

How to Get Emeralds


Enderman dropping Emeralds
Sometimes when you defeat enemies, especially stronger ones like Enderman, they will drop Emeralds for you. How considerate!

Treasure Chests

Emeralds from Treasure Chests
No dungeons without treasures to loot, and in Minecraft Dungeons the Treasure Chests are guaranteed to drop Emeralds, so try to find them all.


Emeralds from Pots
Placed randomly around all maps, these pots are just waiting to be smashed and give up the Emeralds inside.


Salvage Weapons for Emeralds
If you no longer need a weapon, if for example you got a stronger one, you can salvage it for Emeralds.

Since you can only equip two weapons at a time, there should be plently of good Emerald fodder for you to salvage!

Best Equipment to Farm Emeralds

Diamond Pickaxe

Diamond Pickaxe
While it might be hard to find since it's a Unique weapon, the Diamond Pickaxe has the "Find More Emeralds" effect - Most likely a must for anyone looking to rack in loads of Emeralds.

Best Enchantments to Farm Emeralds


Prospector Enchantment
This enchantment is a lot easier to find than the Diamond Pickaxe and gives up to +300% increased chance to get Emeralds from mobs.

Best Missions to Farm Emeralds

Creepy Crypt

Creepy Crypt Mission
Creepy Crypt seems to have a lot of rooms with blue pots, and those usually grant both Treasure Chests and Emeralds, making it an ideal place to farm Emeralds!

It's also usually quite big, so if you have the Diamond Pickaxe with you, you'll be able to get even more Emeralds as you mow your way through.
