Minecraft Range of a Beacon

Your Beacon should be more than just laser light. So to use the beacon to the full extent, you need to place it on top of a pyramid. The pyramid will grant beakers additional powers, and any player in that vicinity will receive great advantages and buffs. The pyramid is a four leveled structure that can be made out of gold, iron, diamond, or emerald. The first level of the pyramid will give the beacon a minimum range of twenty blocks, and each additional level will increase with ten more blocks. 

Maximum blocks in one level could be fifty to increase the range of the beacon. Each level has to be filled, and you can’t just leave it at the rim, or else it won’t work. The resources you used for one level have to match the others to maintain similarity, and if not done, the beacon won’t have the same powers in some cases, won’t work.

Once you are done building the entire pyramid, your beacon will have a range of fifty blocks. On the top of the pyramid, you have to make sure there isn’t anything obstructing the beacon’s view of the sky, which hints towards not having a secret beacon on top of the already existing one.
