The Ender Dragon is found at the center of the End Portal, which can be accessed by collecting and placing Eyes of Ender in the frame blocks of the End Portal structure. Upon entering the End, players will find themselves on a small obsidian platform with Ender Crystals placed on top of obsidian pillars scattered throughout the landscape. Destroying these Ender Crystals is crucial to weaken the dragon.

Abilities and Attacks

[edit | edit source]

The Ender Dragon possesses a range of abilities and attacks that make it a formidable foe. It can charge at players, dealing significant damage upon impact. The dragon can also shoot purple fireballs, known as dragon's breath, which cause damage and lingering potion effects. It will occasionally perch on the obsidian pillars, making it difficult to attack directly.

Strategy and Tips

[edit | edit source]

To defeat the Ender Dragon, players must employ effective strategies and tactics:

1. Destroy the Ender Crystals: Start by destroying the Ender Crystals found on top of the obsidian pillars. These crystals heal the dragon, so removing them weakens its defenses.

2. Endermen and Obsidian: Avoid looking at Endermen to prevent provoking them. Bring blocks of obsidian to create safe shelters to hide from both the dragon's attacks and Endermen.

3. Ranged Attacks: Utilize a bow and arrows to attack the dragon from a distance. Aim for the dragon when it is airborne or when it swoops towards the platform.

4. Ender Pearls and Chorus Fruits: Bring Ender Pearls for quick teleportation and Chorus Fruits for emergency healing.

5. Beds and Explosives: In newer versions of Minecraft, beds can be used as explosive weapons against the dragon. However, be cautious as the explosion can be fatal if not adequately prepared.

Upon defeating the Ender Dragon, players are rewarded with a significant amount of experience orbs and access to the End Gateway, which allows them to explore outer islands in the End dimension. In addition, the dragon drops the Dragon Egg, which serves as a trophy, and dragon's breath (collected with bottles), a key ingredient for brewing potions.
