The Blaze Rod was first added in the Beta 1.9 pre-release. It has a chance to drop from a Blaze upon death. Its main uses are as an ingredient in crafting a Brewing Stand, a requirement for brewing potions, and Blaze Powder, used as fuel for the Brewing Stand and for crafting Eyes of Ender. This item is usually not obtained until later on in the game, when the player ventures into the Nether, as blazes only spawn there naturally. Also, they are harder to acquire because of the difficulty of killing blazes without proper equipment.
