This is a fairly simple task, below you can find a detailed description.

For this, you need the following things:

  • Saddle
  • Fungus
  • Fishing rod

After this, do the following:

  • Place the saddle on the desired strider.
  • Find a Fungus and combine it with a fishing rod.
  • Sit on the strider and set the direction with the fishing rod.
  • Done!

Strider Ride Features

  • Mob movement speed in lava – 4 blocks per second.
  • Block movement speed – 1.5 blocks per second.

If the strider falls into the lava from a great height with the player, the player will not fall off the creature. However, there is a risk of taking a lot of damage from the lava. So you should be careful.

A strider can walk on lava. It can be sped up with a speed potion. In addition, these creatures can move on land. However, the movement speed will be much lower.

You should also protect the creature from water because it takes damage from any liquid, except lava. If it is outside the lava, then it starts to shake and gradually changes its color to purple.

If the player holds a fungus in his hand, then the strider will follow him. The same can be done with a fishing rod that has a fungus on it.

How to Breed Striders in Minecraft

This is similar to horse-breeding. Striders can be bred using Warped Fungus. To do this, you need to click on two adults, after which they will begin to mate and a small strider will be born. Growth time is 1 game day, which is approximately 20 minutes. In this case, the player will receive several units of experience.

This is all you need to know about the breeding and taming of Striders in Minecraft. While you are here, please read our guide on how to build a beacon in Minecraft.
