Ender Dragon is one of the hardest dragons in Minecraft to fight, and many players consider defeating him as finishing the game. If you’re a regular Minecraft player and think the same way, you have landed at the best spot.

Minecraft is one of the best sandbox games of all time, and today, we will share a complete guide with you on how you can find and defeat the Ender Dragon.

We will also list all the essential elements you must remember before heading out to defeat the dragon. If that sounds good, then let us jump straight on to the guide.

Prepare for The Fight First!

Well, don’t just head out to find the Ender Dragon without all the vital equipment; you should make diamond armor pieces first, a diamond sword, and a bow with lots of arrows.

I personally would recommend having your sword a level three of sharpness enchantment, and if you are a true Minecraft fan, then you must be aware that the Ender Dragon flies around so it would be best if you damage it using arrows.

Also, make sure to have lots of spare dirt blocks as they’ll help you build towers and some pro players also take a bucket of water with them, so they can save themselves in case they fall off the tower.

You’ll also be facing a ton of Endermen during your fight so you should wear a Carved Pumpkin if you don’t want to have a hard time.

Eyes of Ender are another element that will help you during your fight, as you’ll need to find and activate the End Portal. The Eyes of Ender are made using one Blaze power and one Ender Pearl.

Finding The Ender Dragon

In order to reach the Ender Dragon, you need to find a Stronghold on the overworld map. Strongholds are underground, and players can find them using an Eye of Ender.

The Eye of Ender will then fly up in the sky and lead you to the direction of the Stronghold, keep following it and the eye will then float lower, indicating that you’re close to the Stronghold and need to start digging below.

Keep in mind that the Eye of Ender will break after several uses, so make sure to use it wisely and make sure that you collect a good amount of Eye of Ender so you won’t run out in the middle of the process.

The Eye will guide you to some stone bricks, and yes Stronghold are basically big stone mazes so that will be an indication that you have reached.

Once you’re in the Stronghold, you need to find the room with the end portal, and yes, finding the portal can be quite a hassle. That is why we recommend blocking the paths you’ve already searched.

Once you’ve reached the portal, you need to fill the borders of the portal with 12 Eye of Enders to activate it; some slots will already be filled with eyes, so you’ll only need to fill three empty ones.

Once the portal is up and running, jump into it, head over to the end, and then find the Ender Dragon.

Defeating The Ender Dragon

After finding the Ender Dragon, take down the glowing End Crystals, which you can find sitting at the top of the Obsidian towers and some of the crystals will also have metal cages around them.

Use your dirt blocks to elevate yourself up the tower, and then once you’re up, you’ll be able to aim up and into the End Crystal cage from the corner.

Now place your cursor on the top of the crystal and smash away while the remaining End Crystals with no cages can be broken easily using a bow and arrows.

Once all the End Crystals are broken, the Ender Dragon will fly down, and that is when you should jump and slice at its tail. Later it will fly back up, and that is when you can damage it with a bow and arrows.

The Ender Dragon will shoot fireballs at you; that is when you need to trust your gamer instincts and doge them. If you’re a Minecraft beginner, listen to the fireballs carefully and try to doge them. Keep damaging the dragon until it dies; when it does, a portal will open up, allowing you to leave the End.

You will receive a ton of player XP, and a dragon egg will also be dropped, which you can place anywhere as a trophy and flex your achievement.
