Finding a gateway to the End

The End Gateway is a portal in Minecraft that creates around the main island at the End. It generates every time an Ender Dragon is killed, as the name implies. It's used to reach the outer islands in the End, located 1000 blocks from the central island. These islands lead to End Cities.

You can find the legendary Elytra on the outer islands, which are beautiful structures known as End Cities. It is possible to reach the outer islands by building structures called End Cities, but it takes a lot of time and can result in the Ender Dragon being defeated.

Five Steps to Get an End Gateway in Minecraft

1) Locating a Stronghold

Strongholds in Minecraft are large underground structures that house rare items and a variety of mobs. If a player wants to reach the End, the End Portal is a crucial part of their quest.

It is difficult to locate a stronghold because it requires certain materials.

Eyes of Ender can be used to locate strongholds. They are thrown in the air and point the player in the correct direction. Continue to throw the Eye until the Eye hovers at a single spot or falls into the ground.

Next, the player must dig down. They will find the Stronghold when they can see stone bricks and mossy stones bricks.

2) Finding the End Portal

End Portals allow you to access the End realm of Minecraft. These portal rooms can only be found within a Stronghold. You can find portal rooms by searching the Stronghold.

Once they have found the Portal, the player must activate it by placing an Eye of Ender into each of the 12 frames. Every frame has a chance of producing with an Eye of Ender at 10%.

After all Eyes have been placed, the Portal activates with a loud crackling sound and a galaxy-textured Void will appear.

3) Destroying the Ender Dragon

The Ender Dragon, the last boss of Minecraft is located in the End. It is essentially a sign that the player has “beaten Minecraft”. The Ender Dragon is a formidable foe and can easily kill a player. It is recommended to have a complete set of diamond armor and enchanted weapon.

The only way to make progress and find the End Gateway is to defeat the Ender Dragon.

4) Finding an End Gateway

An End Gateway will appear at the outer edge of the inner island after the Dragon is defeated. You can create up to 20 End Gateways by killing the Dragon and respawning it. You can respawn the Dragon by placing an End Crystal at each Exit Portal.

5) The End Gateway

It is one block high so you can't access the End Gateway by walking directly through it. There are however a few ways around this.

To enter the End Gateway in Minecraft, you can throw an Ender Pearl inside the portal. You can also put water near the portal, and then sprint-swimming in the block. An Elytra is also available to fly into the portal.
