The Beacon is a vanilla Minecraft block used to provide both a unique landmark, and selected buffs to all players in the vicinity. It is activated by placing it as the final block on top of a pyramid formation made up of one to four levels of mineral blocks: diamond, emerald, gold or iron, in any combination. The smallest pyramid that can be made to work with the beacon block has 1 level and consists of 9 mineral blocks.

The beacon will then emit a light blue beam of light into the sky, and its GUI will be available for choosing and activating the desired enhancements or protections. The range of these effects varies with the pyramid size. All players within range will have the chosen effect applied every few seconds, but when players move out of range, the effect will expire within 4–8 seconds.

This block is not modified by Feed the Beast, although some mineral blocks from Tinkers' Construct can be used as beacon bases instead of iron, gold, emerald, and diamond blocks.
