Gold is one of the most valuable resources in Minecraft Legends, but how do you get it? Let’s find out. In Minecraft Legends, you will need Gold for various purposes, such as awakening First Golem units, upgrading mob armies, obtaining Power Tower structures and more.

However, since it’s a precious resource, many players struggle to find it in the game. We’ve put together this guide which provides a detailed breakdown of all the methods to find Gold in Minecraft Legends. Without any further delay, let’s dive into the details.

How to get gold in Minecraft Legends

As of writing, there are only two ways to farm Gold in Minecraft Legends:

  • Loot Resource Chests
  • Destroy Mining Drills

One of the easiest ways to find Gold in Minecraft Legends is by opening resource chests. These chests are scattered across various locations in the game’s world, so finding them is not difficult. Nevertheless, we recommend visiting the Jagged Peaks region, where you will find these chests in abundance.

However, it’s worth noting that you won’t always find Gold in them, meaning the chests contain random resources, and you will need to open a bunch of them to obtain Gold. If you happen to stumble upon gold inside these chests, you can expect to gather a substantial amount of around 100, which is considerably more than what you would usually obtain from other available sources.

Alternatively, you can get gold in Minecraft Legends by attacking Piglin bases and destroying their mining drills. Start by heading into a Piglin base, usually indicated by the tower symbol on the map. Once you’re there, destroy their mining drills in order to receive rewards like Gold and Prismarine.

You will come across several large bases while completing quests in the game. So make sure to farm Gold while progressing through the story at the same time. After following these two methods, you should have sufficient Gold to unlock First Golems and build stellar improvements at the Well of Fate.

That concludes our guide on how to get Gold in Minecraft Legends. Be sure to also check out our guide on how to get and use Lapis in Minecraft Legends, an important resource for making Golem units.
