I crafted a respawn anchor, but it doesn't seem to do anything. What do I have to do to make it useful?
To make a respawn anchor usable, you must do the following:
- Go to the nether
- Place it where you want to respawn
- Use 1-4 glowstone blocks on it to give it the equivalent number of charges.
- "Use" the respawn anchor (in the same way you'd open a door)
Afterward, if you die in any dimension, the respawn anchor will use a charge to respawn you at its location.
Warning: Don't try to set your spawn point at a respawn anchor in the Overworld or The End. If you do, it will explode (similar to when you use a bed in the Nether).
