How to Craft Shields: Minecraft PE

In the world of Minecraft PE, a shield is your best friend when it comes to defending yourself from enemy attacks. It can block incoming arrows, lessen the impact of melee attacks, and even repel some of the damage from explosions. Crafting a shield is relatively straightforward, but you’ll need a few specific materials: six wooden planks of any type and one piece of iron ingot, which you can obtain by mining iron ore and smelting it in a furnace.

Minecraft PE Pocket Edition EGI

Once you’ve gathered your materials, approach your crafting table and tap on it to open the 3×3 crafting grid. To craft a shield, place the iron ingot in the top center square of the grid. Below that, in the middle row, place wooden planks in the left, center, and right squares. Finally, in the bottom row, place a wooden plank in the center square. The pattern should resemble a Y-shape with the iron ingot at the top.

After arranging the materials correctly, the shield will appear in the result box of the crafting table. Tap on it to move it to your inventory. Now, you have successfully crafted a shield! This tool can be a lifesaver during combat, so it’s a good idea to always keep one handy.

Remember that shields can be used by holding them in either your main hand or off-hand slot, and they are activated by holding down the ‘sneak’ or ‘shield’ button, depending on your controls setup. Also, shields can be customized with banners to display different designs and colors, making them not only useful but also a great way to show off your personal style in Minecraft PE. Happy crafting, and stay safe out there!
