The recovery compass is an item, that when held, points to the location of the player’s last death. This is definitely an item that players both need and want, since by default items despawn after five minutes.

The recovery compass will only work for a player who has previously died, and is within the same dimension. The only enchantment that can be placed on a recovery compass is the Curse of Vanishing, which causes the item to disappear on death.
