The Beacon Pyramid is arguably the most costly structure in all of Minecraft. It requires a Nether Star, three Obsidian, five Glass (in for the form of a Beacon) and a minimum of nine Blocks of Iron/Blocks of Gold/Blocks of Emerald/Blocks of Diamond. This, however, has a very helpful effect: It will give all players status boosts if they come within its range, which depends on the pyramid's size.


Beacons require a square number of the aforementioned blocks, the largest amount being 81. Here is a table to understand this:

Number of Blocks Range of Boost in Blocks New Boosts Available
9 (3x3) 20 Speed, Haste

25 (5x5)

30 Jump Boost, Resistance
49 (7x7) 40 Strength
81 (9x9) 50 Regeneration II
