Experience orbs simple “XPs” is one of the important game mechanics of Minecraft.
The player can get a lot of benefits from accumulating XPs while playing the game.
Depending on your strategy, you can get a lot of experience orbs which you can use to improve your weapons and further progress in the game.
Where Can Use XP In Minecraft?
Minecraft allows players to enchant weapons using two methods. One of these methods is via the Enchanted Table.
The Enchanted Table requires experience and Lapis Lazuli to enchant items.
If you want to get better enchantments, you need to place bookshelves around the table. More powerful enchantments will require more experience and more Lapis Lazuli.
This method can only enchant unenchanted items. The actual level cost does not correspond to the level requirement of the Enchanted Table.
For Anvil Usage:
Anvil has a lot of uses in-game.
You can rename, repair, and enchant your weapons, armors, and tools without using Lapis Lazuli. Besides, you can add more enchantment in an already enchanted item, which gives makes it more useful and durable.
The downside for this method is that the more you enchant an item, the more expensive it can get.
You have an unlimited source of experience orbs in Minecraft.
The game spawns hostile mobs based on the light condition while passive mobs can be spawned through breeding.
Mending, or the enchantment which repairs armors, weapons, and tools through experience orbs is a very useful enchantment to have.
As long as you receive experience orbs, you don’t have to mind resources for your gears again.
Tip In Using Experience Orbs :
If you’re enchanting tools and armors, it’s better if you do it at a lower experience level.
The higher your experience is, the harder it is to level up and refill the experience bar.
When a player dies, all the experience points will be dropped. If the player can’t retrieve it in time, these orbs will despawn.

A Bottle o’ Enchanting is a throw item which releases experience orbs when used by the player.
This item can be obtained via trading or via loot generation.

Now, there’s a more important reason why you should trade items with the villagers: experience points.

This is a pretty decent deal, as you’re also receiving emerald (if you’re selling stuff) or receiving other goods.
5. Cooking / Smelting
Cooking or smelting using a furnace is not the fastest XP maker in the game.
In fact, the highest point you can get is just one experience point from smelting gold, emerald, or diamond ore.
Iron and Restone gives 0.7 points each block and food items give 0.35 points per item.
You can treat this as a passive experience source because you will always likely use the furnace to cook food and smelt useful materials.
To expand your farms, you need to breed animals by feeding them their favorite food.
Expanding the farm is not the only benefit of breeding animal mobs in the game.
You can get up to seven points every time an offspring is created. This is very useful if you want to get experience in a relatively safe way.

You can get 1-3 experience points from killing animal mobs.
Mining certain resources will give you experience orbs.
Coal Ore gives 0-2 orbs while Redstone ores give 1-5. If you mine more precious materials, the XP gained will also be higher.
Diamond and Emerald ores give 3-7 points while Nether Quarts and Lapiz Lazuli gives 2-5 points.

However, if you manage to beat it, you can receive 50 experience points, in addition to the nether star, which is an item needed to build beacons.
