What is a Recovery Compass

A recovery compass is a new in-game item that was included in the Minecraft 1.19 release. After respawning in the game, you can use it. You may use it to determine your last location before dying in the game because it always points in the direction of that place. The compass will point randomly if you haven’t passed away or are in another reality.

Regular Compass vs Recovery Compass

In Minecraft, a standard compass points in the direction of the starting world. You first spawn in a fresh Minecraft world at this place. However, you can use a loadstone to give your compass a different location to point to if you want to. The recovery compass, however, always points in the direction of the place where you last died. It cannot be moved to another place.

How to Make a Recovery Compass

To make a recovery compass, you need the following items:

  • A normal compass
  • 8 echo shards

Four iron ingots and Redstone dust can be readily combined to create a standard compass. You need a crafting table to make it because it requires 9 cells, as can be seen in the screenshot below:

How to Get Echo Shards in Ancient City

The only place that echo shards can be found are in the ancient cities’ chests as crafting materials. Therefore, you must first travel to the ancient cities located in the deep, gloomy biome. After that, you must search every chest there for 8 echo shards.

Right present, there is no other way to acquire echo shards in Minecraft. So, before starting on this perilous expedition, make sure you understand how to defeat the Warden. Do not forget that even early in the game, the Ancient City chests are sufficient to obtain the highest equip. So, if you have faith in your abilities, venture out into the pitch black early on as well.

Open the crafting table once you have all the materials, then set the conventional compass in the center cell. Then, fill all the other cells to surround it with echo shards. You’ll get a recovery compass as a result that you can use right away.

How to Use

The functioning of the recovery compass is comparable to that of the standard compass. You must equip it when you respawn in order to find the place where you died by going in the direction indicated by its arrow. You must travel there to discover where you died if you passed away in a separate dimension.

When utilizing a recovery compass in Minecraft, bear the following points in mind:

  • Unlike a regular compass, the recovery compass works in all dimensions.
  • Like other items, it also drops from the inventory if the player dies.
  • You don’t have to craft it before dying for it to work.
