Ways to get Crying Obsidian

  1. Trade gold ingots to Piglins
  2. Find Crying Obsidian in Chest (Bastion Remnants)
  3. Find Crying Obsidian at Ruined Nether Portal

Trading with Piglins might seem like the most reliable way to get the Crying Obsidian and it will depend on some RNG when it comes to how much, if any you can get in a trade.  You have a chance to get between one and three pieces of Crying Obsidian.  However, there is only a 10% chance you are going to get Crying Obsidian at all.
