To unlock the Overpowered achievement in Minecraft’s 1.8 update, you’ll need to craft an Enchanted Golden Apple.

How to Construct an Enchanted Golden Apple:

  • Ingredients: 8 Blocks of Gold + 1 Apple

Where to Find an Apple:

Apples are found commonly from three sources:

1. Trading with Villagers
2. Randomly appearing in Chests found in Villages or Strongholds
3. Randomly spawned when harvesting Oak or Dark Oak tree leaves.

If the Bonus Chest option is activated, apples will commonly appear at the spawn area.

How to Craft Gold Blocks:

Gold Blocks do not appear in the world. Instead, they must be crafted from Gold Ingots.

  • Ingredients: 9 Gold Ingots
  • Crafting Guide: Gold Ingot – GI

Gold Ingots are made from Gold Ore. The rare blocks are only found in the lowest 32 layers of the world.

To create Gold Ingots, one Gold Ore block must by placed in a Furnace for Smelting with any fuel (such as coal or charcoal) to smelt the Ore into an Ingot.

Coal is can be found in Coal Ore blocks. Charcoal is made by placing Wood into a Furnace for Smelting. Coal naturally spawns underground in regular rock veins.

A Wooden Pickaxe is required to harvest Coal. For harvesting Gold Ore, a Steel Pickaxe or better is required.
