Minecraft: Here’s how to defeat The Ender Dragon

There’s much more in Minecraft than building shelters and hiding from Creepers at night. The game includes a number of enemies that require a ton of skill to defeat them. The most powerful of them in the game is The Ender Dragon. It is a fearsome beast with 10 attack damage and 200 health.  You won’t be able to see this creature flying around the world. Instead, you’ll need to find its home or else the game will be finished. Additionally, even if you manage to get there, you’ll experience the toughest fight in the game against The Ender Dragon. But you don’t need to worry at all as there are number of steps to easily defeat The Ender Dragon.

The Ender Dragon is so powerful that it easily smashes through most blocks in Minecraft, except Obsidian and the End Stone. Make sure that you have as much Obsidian as possible, then use it to build a tiny room next to the portal you entered from. Additionally, place an Ender Chest in this shelter, which allows you to harvest End Stone and then bring them to the Overworld before fighting against The Ender Dragon.

Before engaging with The Ender Dragon in Minecraft, find and bring a Bow with the greatest Power level along with arrows as well. On top of that, you need a sword with a Fire Aspect or high damage.

In addition to the normal armor, equip Diamond Armor with Protection IV. A Pumpkin or Diamond Helm is also good against The Ender Dragon, but Diamond is the best way to go since it will keep you alive longer, whereas Pumpkin comes in handy for avoiding Endermen. If you don’t equip Pumpkin and look at Endermen, they’ll probably come after you.

You’ll probably need to heal at least once during the battle, so keep a lot of Potions of Healing and Regeneration, along with some Golden Apples or Enchanted Golden Apples. Finally, Ender Pearls allow you to teleport from a smaller island to the main island if you somehow lost your path.

When the boss fight against The Ender Dragon begins, make a point to destroy the End Crystals on top of the Obsidian Pillars. These crystals keep the creature close to max health, so it’s in your best chance to destroy.

The best way to destroy End Crystals is to look for healing beams, then follow them back to the crystals. Pull out your Bow and shoot them with arrows until they are destroyed completely.

With the End Crystals destroyed, go after The Ender Dragon with your Bow. Aim for its head for quadruple damage. To achieve headshots, wait for the boss to chase you, then release a fully charged arrow, then another as fast as you can. The Ender Dragon will eventually run away from you and at this point, all you’ve to do is to chase the monster until  it goes on the attack again. When this happens, do the exact same thing as before. Repeat until the creature falls.
