How to build a Cobblestone Generator in Skyblock?

Cobblestone forms where lava and water meet. A cobblestone generator provides an infinite supply of cobblestone! Once you start your Skyblock world, you will find one bucket of lava and one block of ice inside of a chest.

To make your own simple cobblestone generator, do the following in a four-block line:

  1. Dig down one block and place the ice block on top.
  2. Dig down two blocks to the right of the ice block.
  3. Leave the next dirt block in place.
  4. Dig down one block and place the lava on top.

Once you have your cobblestone generator set up, break the ice block. The ice will become water and flow into the two-block deep hole next to it. The third dirt block should now be the only thing separating the water and lava. Breaking the dirt block will cause the water and lava to collide, creating a block of cobblestone. Get ready to start mining!

Mining in Skyblock

Mining is one of many skills used by Skyblock players to level up. There are three main strategies to generate in-game money using mining. First one consists of breaking naturally generated blocks using a pickaxe. Second one consists of using a minion. i.e. an OP Miner minion can do job for you even when you are sleeping. Third one consists of teaming-up with other players and mining together. πŸ’ͺ ⛏️ ⛏️ ⛏️

Farming in Skyblock

Cactus and cane sugar are the best crop to farm to level up your farming skill and boost your island economy.

Building a cactus farm can take less than 1 hour and the crop will generate 100s to 1000s per hour depending on the size of your farm and collection efficiency.

Here again an automated farm can help you generate fantastic results even when you are sleeping.
