Some additional things: This mining was done on Hermitcraft. Thanks to Tango for providing a lot of the gunpowder for the TNT. Also, I'm now out of sand!
I'd like to do more videos like this in the future for other resource gathering techniques so if you enjoyed this video let me know what other resources you'd like to see me do videos on!

How does the strip mining v straight line compare if you use a fortune + mending pickaxe and gather quartz at the same time? I'm interested to know if the one pickaxe will work in both cases.

wouldn't the fairest test be to start in the exact same spot everytime on the same seed (different copies of the seed) because of varied terrain generation?

As an avid bed miner, I will say that you were doing the process completely wrong. mining in a straight line at eye level far as you can reach and then stepping back as you place and click the bed makes the process much quicker. Also dont take the time to build the tunnel ahead of time, use the beds to make your own tunnel. Combine that with the fact that its alot less time consuming to collect the resources necessary, and it becomes the most efficient way time mine ancient debris in my opinion

An even better moethod is to use tnt dupers, the tnt will explode launching all the other tnt out to uncover the netherite.

Ryan Massenburg
Ryan Massenburg - 4 dager siden
@Sir Sytham once per method sure but thats still gotten results in the same ball part for what 8 different times? compare finding around 1 per minutes to how I found 1 per multiple hours. sure its not perfect but something else would seem to be in play for it to be off by a factor around 200, perhaps I had horrendous luck but going to that extent is unlikely. By the way there is not need to test in multiple seeds or biomes, a certain amount of netherite is generated within each chunk and those factors have no effect on this.
Sir Sytham
Sir Sytham - 4 dager siden
@Ryan Massenburg Yes, it’s inaccurate. For each method, he mined ONCE. For it to be an actually logical study, he would need to do the same method HUNDREDS of times in different biomes, in different seeds and in different places, using max efficiency for each method. He hasn’t done any of that here.

@Sir Sytham I am just speaking from my past experience, I haven't gone mining for ancient debris in quite some time but I agree this seems like suspiciously successful results which is why I commented. Are you suggesting that this video is just completely fake made up results? Cause the sample size is large enough it should simply be inaccurate.

Yeah, TNT is definitely the best, it's trying to get the TNT that's much more time intensive.... I also had much better results bed mining than you did, however I just went straight back with beds in the middle of the chunk.

I though it was bad and worse than pick. Also the amount of time you spend crafting new beds - and throwing other items you inevitably pick up out of you inventors, AND the enemies that attack you , because you roam around in the same large area you all the time. Getting wood, puts the nail in the coffin.
With a pickaxe you can literally sprint-mine a 1x2 tunnel, very quickly exposing a lot new blocks.
Though I'm inclined to do try "free form" bed minig method. Just place down, bang, place down bang, with minimal preparation, not spending time on proper spacing etc.
Like the TNT-Method just walk backwards and blow up the tunnel. Because, the resources are quite cheap. And creeper farms don't exactly bang (no pun intended) on Bedrock edition.

Are you only using one bed each? Using two beds reveals much more blocks, so it would be interesting to get the numbers for that.

Alright, but there's two things about bed mining you have to consider.
First of all you wasted time putting out fire. That's why it was slow. Don't do that. Just blow up the bed, have a look around, and move on. There might be cinnabons hidden under the flame, but it's not worth it if you're trying to be max efficient.
Second of all, beds are easily accessible early game. You used netherite pickaxe and TNT, something you don't have a lot of in the start of the game. If you just want to find some cinnabons quickly in the early game, then beds might just be the way to go.
Nabium - 4 dager siden
@caezar Yeah. And even if it isn't on-par, then he should have mentioned the benefits of beds in early game. We all play minecraft in different ways, and some just likes to start new servers and try out challenges. The other day I tried to see how many advancements I could get in three hours, and one of the advancements I went for was getting fully covered in netherite and having a netherite hoe. So I was in the nether with an iron pick. Strip mining just wouldn't have been enough. I found nine tnt in a temple and used them, but I certainly didn't have an unlimited supply or have an enchanted netherite pickaxe. Beds were perfect for that scenario. I stole a bunch of beds from villages, and made a simple sheep farm as well, and with that I managed to get enough netherite to complete both those challenges! I agree the whole premise of this video probably was that you are in a world where you've already aquired all the resources you'd need. But, I doubt everyone who watches this is there yet. Not everyone plays minecraft every day, there's a lot of other games out there as well. Not everyone have made creeper farms yet, etc. Of the three worlds I play, I only have a creeper farm in one of them, and I play a lot of minecraft these days. I mean Cub didn't even make get the gunpowder himself, he got it from Tango. Not everyone is playing worlds where they can just trade a bunch of gunpowder with a farm-lord like Tango. In the end let me just add that this criticism is only about this one detail in this one video, otherwise Cub is a great youtuber and I love him to bits. I just think that the "bed mining method" has not been debunked by this video.
caezar - 4 dager siden
Yeah, no need to punch out the fire. If your server has doFireTick true, fire will burn out on debris, you just need to look again later. The time spent punching fire could have been used to make a second explosion on the same spot, which will actually break more netherrack than the first explosion. It's also best to mine between chunk borders, because debris spawns on a per-chunk basis and uncovering more chunks increases how many debris you find. If he was doing it properly, and you factor the material costs. The bed mining would likely be on-par with tnt mining.

When bedbombing, you will want to place a bed level with your feet. Then, you place a block in front of the bed (so you take less damage). Below your feet, you will want to place cobblestone (cobblestone won't blow up as easily as netherack). Also, unless you are rich in minecraft, bedbombing is the easiest way. This is because of the amount of time it takes to gather the resources. You can get a lot more beds than tnt in a short amount of time. I hope this puts to light the main reasons bedbombing is used.

you said you crafted the beds while mining. i wonder how fast tnt and tnt + end cristal would be if you had to craft both while mining as well. i you did it because you cannot stack beds. but if you only compare the time efficiency you should add it. as a serious time consumption. and i am sure pick axe mining is top place again because of the tnt resources you have to gather and have to subtract

Thanks for doing all that work. One comment: If you explode two beds in each area (the 2nd one one block further away) you uncover way more ancient debris. You have to rebuild the walkway to protect yourself, and a bridge out to place the 2nd bed, but I found a ton more that way than just exploding a single bed. This was the technique that gnembon demonstrated in one of the snapshots.
