Blaze Rods are rare items in Minecraft since it requires a trip to The Nether to obtain a few. They are used for crafting important items for killing the Ender Dragon, as they can be crafted into Blaze Powder, then combined with Ender pearls to create Eyes of Ender. They can be obtained from Blazes, which spawn only in Nether Fortresses and appear to have 12 of these rods as body parts.


How to craft a Brewing Stand


Blaze Rods are obtained by killing Blazes, which spawn naturally in Nether Fortresses.


  • Blaze Rods are a retextured version of Sticks.
  • Planned in 1.8, Blaze Rods are to be held like tools, instead of an item. This is presumably since players already use them as weapons when enchanted with Fire Aspect.
