When you’ve done specific actions in Minecraft, you will be rewarded with items and blocks, and sometimes, you can see glowing orbs floating on the ground.
That’s an experience orb!
To get better and better in Minecraft, you must enchant your tools and armors with an Enchantment Table.
And of course, you will need a lot of levels (or XP). And that’s why today, we will show you how to make an XP farm in Minecraft!
XP Farm Type in Minecraft
There are plenty of ways to obtain XP in Minecraft. The number of experience orbs depends on the action you do and you can passively farm with some actions. The most common ways to obtain experience in Minecraft are:
- Killing passive and hostile mobs
- Breeding passive mobs
How to Make an XP Farm in Minecraft
Although there are many ways to make an XP farm in Minecraft, we will only go with the three most efficient ways.
Method 1: Killing Mobs
You can kill mobs in Minecraft and get XP through 2 methods in Minecraft, with a mob spawner and manually hunting them.
Since the manual way is just way too tedious and the XP is not that much too, we will ignore it.
Spawners in Minecraft only spawn naturally in some of the generated structures like Dungeons, Mineshafts, Woodland Mansions, Strongholds, Nether Fortresses, and Bastion Remnants.
You can find pretty much any mob spawner from a zombie to a skeleton, or even a blaze spawner.
Once you’ve found a spawner, dig out a wide area around it and fill it with a water source. This will work as a moving mechanism and it will move the spawned mobs to the place you will be killing them.
Remember to place some torches first so the mob will not spawn when you’re making the XP farm.
When you’re done with the transporting, let’s break back to the spawner room and destroy the torches, mobs will start spawning and you just need to wait and swing your weapon to get tons of XP without too much effort.
For a detailed guide, watch this tutorial.
We would recommend finding a zombie or skeleton spawner instead of a spider one since it’s harder to build an XP farm with a spider spawner. Unless you want the loot from spiders.
Method 2: Smelting Items
This XP farm in Minecraft takes advantage of the Furnace (or any cooking block in Minecraft) function.
When you smelt any items within the Furnace, you will get the XP when you take out the items. And this experience is stacked limitless inside the Furnace.
So as long as you constantly put fuel and farm-able items into the Furnace, you can keep stacking the experience inside it and once you took the item out, you will receive a lot of XP.
Remember to use a hopper to automatically pull the item out without destroying the XP in the furnace.
For fuel, you can use some farm-able fuel source like lava or bamboo. And for the item to cook, cactus, stone, or sand is the most affordable block in the game.

Method 3: Trading with Villagers
Since the villager update was announced, a new way of farming XP in Minecraft is invented by massively trading with the Villagers.
It’s easy to set up and once you’ve done everything, you only need to trade and trade so getting to a hundred levels in Minecraft is super easy with this method.
First, you need to find a village – where the villager can spawn. Then depending on the items to want to trade, craft and set up a job site block accordingly to the villagers and start trading with them.
You will unlock high-tier trading as long as you go.
To make things a little bit OP, set up a curing chamber to cure your zombie villagers. This will reduce the cost of any trades and later on, you can automate this process as well as breed new baby villagers to create your whole empire.
