The main use of the bucket is to obtain liquids; mostly water , which is necessary for farming . Keeping some water while mining can guard you from lava. Water cannot yet be drunk unless put into Glass Bottles .
Buckets can also hold lava , which can be used in mob traps and creating useful resources like obsidian and cobblestone . Milk , also holdable in buckets, can cure all effects (e.g. Food Poisoning, Swiftness, Wither) and can be used to make Cakes . All liquids are obtained simply right clicking on the source of liquid, a cow in the case of milk.
