How to make a Minecraft recovery compass and use it

The Minecraft Recovery Compass is a new item that arrived with Minecraft The Wild update and helps you find your way back to lost items after you die. A pretty handy device to have on you if you happen to be spelunking for diamonds and other resources far from your Minecraft home. However, crafting one isn’t easy as you’ll need a weird selection of materials, including the new Echo Shards that can only be looted from Ancient Cities found in Deep Dark biomes – also new with The Wild update. Here’s what you need to know about the Recovery Compass item in Minecraft and how to craft one.

If you need to get a basic compass first then you can either take a naturally generated one from a structure, such as a Shipwreck, Village, or Ancient City, or you can craft one with:

  • 1 Redstone Dust
  • 4 Iron Ingots

However you get one, just remember to leave the Minecraft Recovery Compass near your respawn point so it’s ready to grab when you die. Then you’ve just got to get all your stuff back…
