 Minecraft is a game that focuses on player customization. Players have total discretion over precisely what they produce and how they make it, from the style of the foundation to the sort of farms to the biomes lived in, and even down to the types and palette of blocks used to create these things.

The game's ability to modify its shields is an intriguing use case for this customization that many players may not have tried. These items are among the greatest in the game for mitigating damage, so having a customized one is quite impressive.


In The Wild Update, you may make your own Minecraft shield

Banners made to order

Personalized banners appear unconnected to the issue of custom shields at first look. Banners are ornamental textiles, whereas shields are large slabs of wood and iron that protect users from the hazards of the world.

In actuality, the two overlap quite a bit, as personalizing a shield necessitates gamers creating a custom banner and then combining it with the shield.


Using a banner to decorate a shield

Fortunately, after players have employed dyes and patterns to create the bespoke banner design they desire for their shield, putting this pattern onto the shield is relatively straightforward.

While the anvil may mix enchantments and equipment, it cannot combine a banner and shield. Simply enter the two into a crafting interface, and the bespoke shield should be the result.


How to Examine Custom Shield

In-game, gamers may see their own shield in two ways. The first step is to enter the inventory interface while holding the shield in either the main or off-hand. Moving the cursor to the far side of the screen should cause their character to turn enough for players to view the custom design.

They may also utilize the title's third-person and inverted third-person views. Using these views, users may see the personalized design while rotating.

Alternatively, if they are in an inverted third-person perspective, they may see the design by blocking with the shield, which causes them to hold it flat out in front of them, clearly visible to the camera.

The first step in creating a bespoke shield is deciding on a foundation color for the design. The shield design for this example will be a Pokeball from the popular series Pokemon. A white flag, two red dyes, two black dyes, and two white dyes will be required.

Users must insert the banner into their loom and fill the slot with red dye. They should choose a pattern that will make the top half of the banner red.

They must load the loom with black dye and choose the core diamond pattern. The rim of the Pokeball's central button will be formed by this.

Next, players should put their other red dye into the loom and choose a design that covers the top quarter in the red. This will remove the diamond's top spike.

Then they'll want to repeat the process with white dye and the bottom quarter of the banner.

The second black dye is then loaded onto the loom, and the horizontal line is chosen. It will produce the black line that represents the seal between the ball's top and bottom parts.

The last step is to add the last white dye to the loom and center a white circle. This will make the Pokeball's large white clicky button.

After completing the custom banner, fans should visit their inventory interface and enter their shield as well as the custom banner into the crafting window. This should mix the two, allowing them to remove their unique shield from the crafting output and reequip it.
