    Side note, if you are using pictures for your craft recipe, please keep the images small, and also include a text version of your recipe. Thanks.

    I think the point is that you have to get it from mobs.  And it would be easy enough to turn a zombie spawned into a drowned farm for obtaining tridents.

    I for one hate having to rely on the law of large numbers to obtain something as awesome as a trident. I've killed every drowned with a trident I've ever seen, all with my looting sword, and have yet to obtain one. Also, converted Zombie farms don't work (at least in the Java edition) because Drowned will never drop tridents unless they are holding one, and converted Drowned never gain additional equipment.

    Yeah, having to grind mobs that rarely show up and create farms to get a specific item is unreliable and unintuitive for a player who might not have the know how/willingness to construct such farms.

    However, that crafting recipe is far too cheap for the power of a trident (and also doesn't feel like it wholly represents what a trident is made from)
    Something like three nether quartz in the top row, two diamond (or diamond blocks for incredible expense) for the shaft in the middle two slots, flanked by a total of four prismarine shards.

    agree, with that craft I could eventually have a chance since it's hard to have them, also would be better if drowned wouldn't had tridents, it's just op, three hits and you're dead

    So basically I have an idea first you need to obtain the three blades that are in the tip of the trident you get them by killing all three elder guardians in the sea temples when you have obtained all blades your gonna need to swim to the exact center of the temple and there you will find the handle of the trident stuck in the ground you can only pull it out if you have all three blades but your not finished yet now you have to craft the head you craft the head by placing all the blades at the top in the crafting table at the left and right slots in the middle you add prismarine slabs in the center slot you add heart of the sea and the middle slot on the last row you add prismarine block if you add al that in a crafting table you get the trident head then you put the trident head and handle in crafting table and boom you've got yourself a trident and they do not drop from drowned any more

    If anything, tridents should be a reward for beating a monument. Perhaps they should be easier to repair, but they should not be easier to obtain.

    P.S. I see a lot of comments on every post basically saying "make the game easier". For those of you thinking this way, please reconsider. The fun of a game comes partly from the challenge. Getting powerful items (like tridents) should be difficult and involved enough that the experience of getting one is exciting and rewarding.

    This is my idea for the recipe, though I would prefer it be more like you have to craft three new items(two of them the same actually, to make the pole part) and combine those in order to craft one.

    I think the two prismarine blocks on the left and the two on the right should be turned into prismarine shards, to make tridents harder to craft.

    I think so too but instead of 2 prismarine on top it should be 3 quarts on top
