The secret is to not be stupid.
Yes there is more to it than that.
You see a chest full of potions in a lava fissure, don’t go for it in a crowd of gods. Take rushing slowly, and DONT PLAY WHEN THE SERVERS LAG.
That way, your percentages of dying go down significantly, and the only way you can possibly die is by shotguns, server lag (if you don’t take my warning into consideration,) or a careless mistake every once in a while.
