A lot of you may be wondering about the looting mechanics in Minecraft Dungeons, how do you get loot, or what is the best loot in Minecraft. In this article, we will be creating a Minecraft Dungeons loot guide for anyone who is interested in the amazing loot that Minecraft Dungeons has to offer for us, that we can grind for and try it ourselves because looting epic items is the biggest motivation for every Minecraft player, am I right?
How do you get Loot in Minecraft Dungeons?
Loot in Minecraft Dungeons is mostly gotten from grinding in Dungeons and specific areas, mostly from killing Mobs but you can also get loot from a quest or level rewards when completing it, or finding Mobs such as “Piggy Bank” that drops loot.
There is a variety of Loot in Minecraft Dungeons ranging from Weapons, Artifacts, and Armor, which have their own rarity level to them, Minecraft Dungeons as of now has 3 levels of rarity which is Common, Rare and Unique for Armor and Weapons, and Artifacts would probably be the same from Common to very rare. Of course, Common being the easiest to get and Unique the rarest.
Loot in Minecraft Dungeons specifically Weapons, Armor, and Artifacts are randomized in stats and types, so you can get anything from the worst to the best of the same item, in this case, there’s really no trick but to only just repetitively grind for them and hope that your luck is strong.
What is the best loot in Minecraft Dungeons?
The best loot in Minecraft Dungeons are items that have a rarity level of Rare and Unique, as of now in Minecraft Dungeons Beta there are at least 19 counted Unique weapons in the game and an unconfirmed amount of Unique Armors, and also rare Artifacts which only a few were ever collected and tried out by Beta testers.
Unique items are loot that holds a special ability solely for that item and contains very high stats, for example, one Unique weapon is The Green Menace bow, a bow that has a Poison cloud enchantment when you collect it. Besides the special abilities, they look stunning visually for your character and make you 10 times cool-looking in-game to show off to your friends.
Although we don’t have a brief description of every Unique item in-game because most Unique loots are possibly locked by the developers and will be attainable when Minecraft Dungeons officially releases, so we are limited in the information of what these other unique armors and weapons are and how they function which we will have to most likely wait for the release of Minecraft Dungeons or if any more information comes out.
But other than that, we will list down in the next section of the Weapons, Armors, and Artifacts to start looting for, which would mostly end up being Unique items.

Looting Guide for Pros for Minecraft Dungeons
The information for Looting in Minecraft Dungeons isn’t very clear and down to detail right now with the Beta being limited, but we do have the knowledge in how we can generally grind for loot, and get better equipment gradually.
Getting Better Gear
The only way to get better gear is by replaying levels over again, doing the same Dungeons, doing the same areas again, and fighting the same enemies again, all in which you have to repeatedly do. Loot drops are generated randomly among Mob drops and chest locations every time you set out to play again on each level, so the best way and only way is by replaying the levels, which by luck gives you the chance to find and acquire rare loot like a Unique weapon or Armor in a chest over time.
Getting Artifacts is just like getting better gear, you have to constantly replay levels, and your artifacts will pile up eventually, artifacts can be acquired from mostly Mob drops, chests or level rewards when you complete the level.
Salvage garbage gear for more gear
There is what we call a salvage feature in Minecraft Dungeons, where it allows the players to salvage “garbage” unused gear for Emeralds, then you use these Emeralds to exchange for random gears that might be better than the ones you currently have, so give it a shot.
Use your emeralds
Of course, you can save it if you want, but there’s really no point but to only use it for Emeralds to exchange for a random gear from the Blacksmith, or Wandering Trader, so test out your luck, you might get a Unique gear or anything that may be better than the one you have equipped.
We hope this made you a better Looter!
Remember, keep grinding in order to get better items. That’s what Pros do, an endless grind and hard work to get rare items.
