What is Haste?

Haste is a status effect that makes you mine faster in Minecraft. Yes, it doesn’t have to take forever to break those blocks to get diamonds or coal; Haste can actually make mining faster by 20%, and if you are using Haste 2, it can improve by 40% depending on your level. 


This is particularly helpful if you are trying to stock up your ores while trying to fight off zombies, dodge the arrows of skeletons, and avoid getting bombed by creepers. You can also escape the surge of water or lava with this because you can easily break blocks and create your path to safety. 


Remember that in Minecraft, especially if you are in Survival mode, time is of the essence, and you should get whatever chance that you can to make you move faster and be more efficient as you play.

To do this, you first need to lay down 9×9 blocks of the ore that you want to use on the very first layer of the pyramid. Then, on the second layer, starting from the second block, lay down 7×7 blocks. Then on the third later, lay down 5×5 blocks, then on the topmost layer, lay down 3×3 blocks.
