How To Build An Iron Farm! ▫ Minecraft Survival Guide (1.18 Tutorial Let's Play) [S2 Ep.31]

The Minecraft Survival Guide Season 2 continues! It’s time to build a Minecraft 1.18 iron farm. Which means it’s time to scare some villagers and fry some golems.
This tutorial will show you how to set up an Iron farm in the Spawn Chunks by curing and breeding local villagers, capturing a zombie to scare them, and setting up a lava trap for the iron golems to fall into!
We also explore why these mechanics work the way they do, why villagers still need sleep, how to stop villagers from turning into witches in a thunderstorm, and why Endermen are the answer if you don’t have Silk Touch yet!

Bedrock Edition players, I recommend checking out SilentWisperer’s iron farm tutorial:

  1. the very first time i found out about the villager zombie thing i built a tunnel to a friends base that was in a dead village and we ran a rail, i built my base around a zombie spawner and had what was basically a pair of flood gates to trap the zombies in, id kill them until a zombie villager spawned, lure it away and into a chamber i had setup to basically automatically lock him in behind me with alittle window i could cure them through, i would then put him in a cart and send him along to my friends village lol, we eventually bred them at the village but i still sent probably half a dozen cured villagers down our rail and to the dead village

  2. Be sure to crouch while placing the lava bucket in the center of the fence gates. This might be because I'm VERY new to the game, but it took me FOREVER before I figured that out.

  3. My zombie keeps despawning even though I have name tagged it anyone know how to fix I’ve been trying to figure this out for 4 hours

  4. The water part was explained so poorly and so quickly.. you go into detail about the easy to understand concepts like "zombie will try to pathfind to you" but quickly glance over water mechanics which are extremely more complex…
