How to make an End Portal in Minecraft
This Minecraft tutorial explains how to make an End Portal with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.
In Minecraft, an End Portal acts as a doorway from the Overworld to the End dimension. There are 2 ways to make an End Portal, you can either build the frame yourself or you can find a frame already assembled in a Stronghold. Let’s explore both ways.
When “Minecraft” first came out, there wasn’t any way to beat the game. You just played as long as you wanted — or until you fell into a ravine and died. But a few years into “Minecraft’s” life, the developers added a final boss: the Ender Dragon. Once you beat this flying titan, the credits roll, and you get an achievement for beating the game.
To reach the Ender Dragon, you’ll need to build a special structure known as an End Portal. The End Portal gives you direct access to “The End,” the dark dimension where the dragon lives.
If you’re playing in Survival or Hardcore mode, you’ll need to find a broken End Portal underground and repair it using Eyes of Ender. In Creative mode, you can just build one using materials from your infinite inventory.
Whatever your style, we’ve got you covered with steps to find an End Portal in Survival mode, or craft one in Creative mode.
How to find and make an End Portal in “Minecraft’s” Survival mode
In “Minecraft’s” default mode, Survival, several broken End Portals are generated underground as soon as you create your world. To use them, you’ll need to find the underground stronghold and repair them with Eyes of Ender.
