How to gain experience quickly in Minecraft

In Minecraft, experience is crucial to ensure you become increasingly resilient in the fight to survive. It is helpful for several reasons. You can spend it on repairing and enchanting items. If you have a Repair enchantment on a tool or weapon, earning experience orbs will repair any item you have that enchantment on. Fortunately, there are many ways to gain experience, but some methods can take a while to work. Here are the fastest ways to gain experience in Minecraft.

How to quickly gain experience in Minecraft

Build a mob farm

While you could go out into the dark and fight various mobs to gain experience, it requires a lot of movement and you put yourself in danger. Instead, consider setting up a situation where the mobs are automatically thrown into a small area where you can take them out quickly.

Watch Dusty Dude’s video for an easy-to-access mob farm in the early game. The only essential materials for this build are five stacks of planks of wood or cobblestone and some water. Of course, to make the gathering process profitable, you can expand the farm as you gather more resources.

Build a wheat garden next to a barn with cows or sheep

An easy way to gain experience without much work is to breed cows or sheep. Initially, the output is minimal, but the more animals you have, the more orbs you get. First, catch two cows and sheep and put them in a fenced area. Now start breaking tall grass until you start getting seeds. Craft a hoe and start cultivating the ground near your animal pen. Plant the seeds and eventually you will start growing wheat.

Now that you have wheat, go to your cows and sheep and feed them with it. This will put them into breeding mode (you’ll recognize it by the hearts that will appear around them). Once both are in that mode, they’ll take care of the rest. Once the baby is born, you’ll earn the experience.

As you start expanding your animal collection, consider expanding your garden so you can get more wheat to feed. Each time you harvest a fully grown stalk of wheat, you also get additional seeds, so this process is extremely easy. Every time you see your wheat field fully grown, collect it and feed it to your animals. If you want to gain experience quickly, you can also kill the animals to get items from them.

Find a mob spawner

A simple and effective way to quickly gain experience in Minecraft is to find a spawner in the world. Your best bet is to search underground or head into the Nether and find a Blaze Spawner in a Nether Fortress. Before you go, make sure you have at least four torches, some buckets of water, some fence posts or panels, and blocks to build the room to your specifications.

Unfortunately, not even Silk Touch pickaxes can pick up a spawner, so be careful NOT to disassemble it. When you find the spawner, the mob that spawner is intended for will continuously spawn and attack you. Place torches on each side of the block to prevent mobs from spawning momentarily and kill all mobs in the room. Make sure the flares are connected to the spawner itself and not on the ground.

Now that it’s safe, it’s time to set up the room so the mobs fall into an area where you can safely kill them. This is where the water comes into play. Mobs can’t swim against the current from a water source block, so make sure it pushes them into a small alcove you made to collect them.

Now that you have a staging area for the mobs, go to the opposite side of where they are congregating, break out all the blocks and place your fence post or panel there instead. This won’t let the mobs escape, but you can still beat them and collect any orbs or items they drop.

For a relatively easy spawner experience farm, check out TheStickz6’s video. He uses most of the methods above, but takes it even further, transporting zombies to another stage to have them take fall damage with soul sand. All of this makes killing the mobs faster if you want to gain experience.

Set up a trade market with the villagers

Trading items with villagers is a surefire way to gain plenty of experience. As you trade with them, they level up and offer more trading opportunities (until they run out of supplies). First gather the villagers in separate enclosures so they don’t run away or get attacked by mobs. Spawn Iron Golems in the area for extra protection. Each golem protects up to ten villagers. In the enclosure, place a bed for each villager to sleep on and restore their trade resources the next day.

Keep in mind what profession the villager has, as the items you want will change depending on that. We recommend making as many farming villagers as possible as they are probably the easiest items to collect. To turn the villager into a farmer, place a composter next to his bed. When they’re in Straw Hat you can trade garden items with them, so build a farm to keep trading with them.

If you’d rather have villagers with different professions, here’s a list of all the other blocks you need to swap out the composter with.

  • Armorer – Blast Furnace
  • Butcher – smoker
  • Cartographer – Cartography table
  • Cleric – Brewing Stand
  • Fischer – Barrel
  • Fletcher – Fletching Table
  • Leatherworker – Cauldron
  • Librarian – lectern
  • Stonemason – stonemason
  • Shepherd – loom
  • Toolsmith – Forge table
  • Weaponsmith – Grindstone

Although it may seem slow and uneventful, fishing in Minecraft is a very effective way to gain experience fairly quickly. First, craft a fishing rod out of three sticks and two strings and find any water source block.

The key to making this method more lucrative is to catch individual enchantment books or enchanted fishing rods while fishing. If you notice any of the following books or enchantments on a fishing rod, make sure you use that fishing rod.

  • Mending I: Restores the item’s durability when you pick up experience orbs.
  • Lure III: Makes catching faster and less time waiting for the bobber to go underwater.
  • Luck of the Sea III: Makes it more likely to catch treasure instead of junk.
  • Unbreaking III: Only needed if you don’t have mending. Increases the item’s durability by giving it the ability not to lose durability with use.

Use a console command

Finally, if you want to cheat and save time, you can use a console command to give yourself experience. To do this, open the chat box and type “/xp [number]L [player name]“. This gives every player by that name that number of levels. For example, if I wanted to give myself 10 experience levels, I would enter:


If you don’t include the L, you’re only giving yourself experience points, not levels, so it’ll be a lot less. How to gain experience quickly in Minecraft
