A Compass points towards the player's original spawn point, whether in their inventory screen, in chests, lying on the floor, in crafting or while holding it in their hand. You can also obtain Compasses through NPC Villager trading.
- Using a compass in The Nether and The End will make it useless. A compass in these areas will spin in a clock-wise motion and will not point to a specific direction or object.
- The Compass works in the inventory and hotbar.
