I have been wondering for a while now what level diamond most commonly lies at. I remember reading a post / topic about it somewhere ages ago but after frequent searches I cannot find it again, I think it might be at 13 or 16 blocks above bedrock but I don't wether this is right or it might of changed. Any suggestions on where it is most commonly found or good methods of obtaining it are appreciated :)

0-16. Press F3. Look at Y.

Use the search bar next time.

Diamond is less below level 10 since there's loads of lava that takes "priority" over diamond in the map gen. I would say level 12 (on f3) since it's 1 block above the lava layer. Branch mining is the best way to mine it. I do a gap of 2 between my branches.

I just dig down to bedrock. But 5-10 from the bedrock will be fine to find diamonds.
