Minecraft Lead: Everything You Need to Know

If you’ve ever encountered a trader in Minecraft, you’ve probably seen the leash they use to move around the llama. You can use the leash to carry animals such as a cow, chicken, donkey, horse, pig, parrots, & many more.


It also works as an anchor for the boats & you can move mobs with a leash too. On top of all this, you can use the leash again & again.

There are ways to obtain the Minecraft lead naturally, or you can collect the raw materials & craft one yourself. We’ll go through these processes one by one.

How to obtain Minecraft lead?

Getting a Minecraft lead without crafting is somewhat simple. Firstly, you need to find traders wandering around the world with their animals. Once you locate them, kill either of them & the lead will be dropped.

You can even keep them apart to break the leash. A lead leash can move nearly ten blocks before it drops. Another way of getting a Minecraft lead is through chests.

These were the natural methods of obtaining a Minecraft lead, but how do you use a leash?

How to craft a Minecraft lead?

For crafting a Minecraft lead, you’ll need the following items:

  • 4 x Strings
  • 1 x Slimeball

Finding a string is no big task, but you’ll have to fight a spider first. Pick up your sword & move to hunt down some spiders at night & you’ll get strings as drops.

If you want to avoid fighting, find a mine & look for the cobwebs inside to obtain a string.

Getting a slimeball in Minecraft is even easier. You’ll have to locate a swamp biome. Once you reach there, wait for the night & you’ll find slimes bouncing around the land. Kill it to obtain numerous slime balls.
