Flowers can be placed in dirt around your home, but they can also be placed in flower pots so you can bring the plants indoors. Best of all, crafting flower pots in Minecraft is relatively simple. With just a few common resources, you can whip up a bunch of flower pots to show off your favorite species.

Here's a look at how to make a flower pot in Minecraft and personalize your home.

How to make flower pots

Flower pots can be easily crafted with just a few tools and ingredients. As long as you're far enough in the game to have some basic stone tools, you can easily gather everything you need early on. Here's how to make one.

Step 1: Craft a Crafting Table. Any basic Crafting Table will do, which is made out of four wood planks from any tree.

Step 2: Craft a Furnace. Furnaces may seem complex, but they are almost as easy to make as Crafting Tables. Just get yourself eight cobblestones, place them in your crafting table around the outside edges, leaving a blank space in the middle, and you're done.

Step 3: Find clay balls. Clay balls are what drop when you break open clay blocks, which typically can be found either below or near water, such as by oceans, beaches, and swamps. Each block will give you four clay balls, and you will need at least three.

Step 4: Put at least three clay in the furnace. This will transform the clay into bricks.

Step 5: Take at least three bricks and place them in the left, bottom middle, and right squares of the Crafting Table to make a flower pot.

Once made, you can place the flower pot down and place not only flowers but plenty of other things inside of it. You can hold mushrooms, saplings, cacti, bamboo, and more to decorate your area with whatever flora you desire.

How long is Dragon’s Dogma 2?
A sphinx in Dragon's Dogma 2.

Open-world RPGs can be anywhere from around a dozen hours long to well over 100. Dragon's Dogma 2 is very unique, even among others in the genre, for not adhering to a lot of traditional design philosophies, such as how it handles fast travel. If anything, that will only add to your total playtime, plus there are all the optional quests to do, Vocations to try out and level up, and more if you're a completionist. If you're wondering if you have the time to fit Dragon's Dogma 2 into your schedule among all the other games releasing, here's how long you can expect this adventure to last.
How long is Dragon's Dogma 2?

For the main quest, Dragon's Dogma 2 can probably be beaten in around 25 hours, give or take. That's assuming you mainline the story as efficiently as possible and don't get stuck on any boss fights being under-leveled. A more realistic playthrough where you explore a bit, do some side content, and maybe go for the true ending will push you into the 30 to 35-hour range, as it did for us.

How to get the glider in Rise of the Ronin

The expanded open world of Rise of the Ronin is so big that not even a trusty horse and fast travel systemare quite enough to make traversal as fun and fast as needed. While it might seem a little fantastical, you won't complain about the inclusion of a glider once you get your hands on it and feel how freeing it is to soar above the rooftops and countryside. This has been a heavily marketed mechanic, and yet you can miss your first chance to get it if you don't explore a little before moving on with the main quest. If you want your ronin to truly rise, make sure you check out how to get the glider here.
Where to get the glider

The glider can be found only after you complete the first "big" mission in Rise of the Ronin called "Curtain Falls, Curtain Rises." The end of this quest will have you slay the boss and engage in a short dialogue with them. No matter what you pick, you will get both the papers you need to cross into Yokohama and a key to a storage room. You're not shown where that room is or even need to go there to continue, but missing it will mean losing out on glider access.

How to increase maximum carry weight in Dragon’s Dogma 2
The Arisen next to a bug in Dragon's Dogma 2.

One lesson you will learn very quickly in Dragon's Dogma 2 is that your Arisen isn't built to carry as many materials as you want it to. On a single trek through the world, you will be snagging fruits, herbs, monster parts, ore, weapons, and more. All that weight adds up fast, and you only need to go over half your weight limit before seeing negative effects. Sure, your pawns can shoulder some of that burden, but even then, you will need to start leaving things behind. There are no backpacks or stats you can increase to increase your carrying capacity, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible. You just need to look in a different place.
How to increase your maximum weight

There are two ways to increase your weight limit in Dragon's Dogma 2, but only one of them is permanent. That is to find and use special Golden Trove Beatles hidden in the world. These are big, gold glowing beetle-looking critters, usually clinging to trees or walls that you can grab like anything else. Once you find one, open your inventory and use it to permanently increase your weight by .015kg. That's a rather small increment, but there are dozens, if not over a hundred, of these bugs to find.
