This article provides a comprehensive guide on how to make an Ender Portal, including a step-by-step guide, video tutorials, different methods for building the portal and how to choose the best one, tips and tricks, and creative ideas to make your Ender Portals stand out.

I. Introduction

If you have ever played Minecraft, you would agree that building an Ender Portal is an essential part of the game. An Ender Portal takes you to The End, where you defeat the Ender Dragon- the ultimate prize of Minecraft. If you are struggling to build an Ender Portal, worry no more, because this article will provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to do just that.

II. Step-by-Step Guide

The materials you will need to build an Ender Portal include twelve End Portal Frames and Eyes of Ender. These materials can be obtained by trading with a cleric villager, fishing, or killing Endermen. Once you have gathered all the necessary materials:

  1. Find the right location. The Ender Portal can only be built by the edge of the world, and the player needs to dig out a three-block-wide and five-block-tall space to put the portal in.
  2. Place the End Portal Frames in the dug-out space. Stand facing the perimeter of the area you dug out and place the eleven End Portal Frames in a circular fashion by right-clicking on them.
  3. Place the Eye of Ender. Place the Eye of Ender into each End Portal Frame block until the entire structure is complete. The Portal Frame will only be activated when all eyes are placed.
  4. Enter The End. To enter The End, right-click on the center block with a final Eye of Ender. Once you hear a sound effect, the portal will activate, and the player will be transported to The End.

And that’s it! You have built an Ender Portal.

III. Video Tutorial

If written instructions do not suffice, a video tutorial may help you navigate through the process easier. There are several video tutorials available on different platforms like YouTube and TikTok that showcase different methods of building the Ender Portal. Here is one such tutorial:

Make sure to watch the entire tutorial to avoid any mistakes.

IV. Comparison of Different Methods

Although the steps mentioned above may work, there are other variations of building the Ender Portal. For instance, instead of digging a massive three-block-wide and five-block-tall area, you can build on a wall of your house or use a stronghold found in the game’s world. However, each method has its pros and cons. Here are some comparisons:

  • Digging a new space is time-consuming but allows for ample space to place the End Portal Frames.
  • Building on a wall is less time-consuming but limiting in space.
  • Using a stronghold is less time-consuming and already has an End Portal Frame, but finding one can be challenging.

Choose the method that suits you best.

V. Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks that may come in handy while building an Ender Portal:

  • Keep a water bucket while building the Ender Portal. This helps to break misplaced blocks or aid in venturing down vertical tunnels.
  • Use Graveyard biomes as they contain numerous Endermen and can provide you with enough Eyes of Ender.
  • Be sure to carry food, as fighting the Ender Dragon is tiresome, and the character gets hungry quickly.
  • If you do not have enough Eye of Ender, you can look for Stronghold within the game world. Stronghold has End Portals already built, and all you need to do is fit in the Eye of Ender.
  • Get creative with your locations and shapes. Even though the Edge of the World is the only place to build an Ender Portal, you can still make it look different with different materials and patterns.

By following these tips and tricks, you can make your Ender Portal building experience much more comfortable and efficient.

VI. Ender Portals in Minecraft Gameplay

As mentioned earlier, an Ender Portal takes the player to The End, a dark and eerie dimension where they can fight the Ender Dragon. The purpose of the Ender Dragon battle is to obtain the dragon egg that lies on top of the end portal. Ender Pearls can be obtained by ‘killing’ the Dragon. Ender Pearls can be used for teleportation, and Eyes of Ender can be used to find a stronghold and to activate the End Portal.

VII. Building Creative Ender Portals

If you want to add some creativity to your Ender Portal, here are some ideas:

  • Use colorful different blocks to make the portal stand out.
  • Build the portal in different shapes and sizes like a heart, star, or circle.
  • Use different patterns like checkerboard patterns or stripes to make the portal more stylish.
  • Decorate the surrounding area with different props to give the place a unique feel.

By adding your creativity, you can make your Ender Portal look unique and memorable.
