The Blaze Rod was first added in the Beta 1.9 pre-release. It has a chance to drop from a Blaze upon death. One blaze rod can be crafted into two Blaze Powder (shapeless recipe). The blaze rod is a requirement for brewing, as the blaze powder crafted from it is the only way to fuel a Brewing Stand. This item is usually not obtained until later on in the game after the Player ventures into the The Nether, as blazes only spawn there naturally. In addition, they are harder to acquire because of the strength and difficulty of killing blazes without snowballs.
