Hardcore worlds are one of the most ruthless types in the Minecraft world. It can take a lot of trying before you actually reach the credits, which can be very frustrating. This article discusses hardcore solo strategies, many, but not all of which can also apply to other game modes.
Before you start the hardcore world, it is advisable to beat the Hard game several times. Learn to act quickly and effectively. After the hardcore world begins, it may be useful to Practice Other (Non-Hardcore) worlds, especially to prepare to fight the dragon Ender.
Hardcore mode is worth copying the world before taking the risk.
How to play hardcore in Bedrock 1.16
This method is really simple, but it gives the opportunity to cheat.
Create a world of survival in Hard mode
Remove the world when you die
If desired, use the texture pack to change the texture of the hearts
As you can probably imagine, you can end up cheating the system and be reborn, and that won’t permanently disable cheats. However, if you want to get achievements in the world, this is the only way to do it without change.
Using cheats (developed by QBSteve)
Here’s how to (kind of like) make a hardcore world in the hip. (Note: this design repeats hardcore in Java versions 1.0.0 – 1.3.1, no textures (unless you have a texture / resource package that does the job))
Make a world(set the world settings to anything you like, because it is in a difficult position (turn off “natural regeneration” for ultra hardcore world).
Go to creative and get Bedrock, get the Control block with the command / give, the pressure plate (make sure it is not weighed down! [need test]), light source (optional)
Build a root room (large enough to accommodate all the necessary blocks)
The construction of the structure (the legend: P = the pressure of the slab, C1 = control block (KO) (command: /tag @r dead(settings: default)) C2 = CB (command: /kick @a(tag=dead)YourReasonHere(settings: repeats it, is always active)), C3 = ST (command: /респавна @a (settings: repeats it, is always active)),), B = rock, usually = light source (optional)
stand on C3, then type the following command / tickingarea add circle ~ ~-1 ~ 4 spawn
Tie the box (make sure that the player does not choke there!)
Reset the creature of the world (so that players can really play without being kicked out of the game immediately)
Note: P is just the spawnpoint, add the pressure plate if you wish
Always watch your back. Some of the most common deaths are from a creeper or a ghast, both of which can’t be ranged by sound. The fastest way a creeper can get to you is dropping from above.
Fall damage is a common way of dying, so wearing boots with Feather Falling IV can be very helpful as you will be very unlikely to die of fall damage unless your health is low.
Never attack two creepers in a row or at once. The same goes for skeletons because their long-range shooting means it’s hard to get in close.
Never take unnecessary risks. Sometimes there are necessary risks, but most things probably are not worth the chance of death or losing a lot of health that may lead to death. For example, in most situations, it’s better to bridge a gap over a lava ocean to a Nether Fortress than to throw an Ender pearl to get over there.
Mobile inventory space can be increased through the use of ender chests, shulker boxes, horses, donkeys, mules, and llamas with a chest.
Don’t be afraid to place plenty of torches all over the ground. Surviving is easier in a well-lit area.
Beds are critical, especially early game. They bypass monsters spawning at night (and prevent phantoms). This is very helpful for exploring the surface and gathering basic resources in safety. To save materials, break and reuse the same bed. Normally breaking a bed is a bad idea (as the player will spawn in the world spawn if you die), but in hardcore mode you will not respawn.
Avoid going out at night until you’re well-prepared, with iron or diamond equipment and preferably a safe zone to retreat to. If night suddenly falls upon you, retreat to a shelter (if one is close enough), or build one. Even a simple pillar is helpful for surviving the night.
Avoid dangerous areas early in the game such as caves and ravines. It’s best to stay away until you are better equipped with iron armor and tools.
Wear your best set of armor at all times, replacing it as it gets worn. Remember that unenchanted armor doesn’t protect you against falling damage, Poison, Hunger, etc.
Avoid lags and don’t use glitch. You won’t want to have your computer lag for an hour and then find out that you died when the lag was occurring.
Sometimes it’s better to flee than fight. Always have a solid block on your hotbar and practice key binding so you can build a barricade and shelter on a short notice.
Try to keep your hunger meter full at all times – regenerating health might save your life and eating in the middle of combat can be hard to do. Remember, hunger can kill you.
Walk and avoid jumping when you are not being pursued by a mob. Sprinting can deplete a lot of your hunger bar if you are not careful.
While walking around, try to punch passive mobs with meat drops to death, such as pigs, which drops porkchops.
Don’t jump too much. It takes down your hunger bar if you are not careful. Use stairs and ladders instead of jumping if you are low on food, but it may be hard to find the resources to have many of them.
Try not to take unnecessary damage. The fastest way to lose a full hunger bar is regenerating health.
Try to have a stable good food supply like a potato farm or a pig/cow farm so you can worry less about conserving hunger.
Do everything you can to make sure that you are not overrun by monsters. Plan ahead and leave escape routes ready. Digging into the side of a mountain to make an emergency dugout shelter should only be done in extreme emergencies.
It’s a good idea to keep a milk bucket and a water bucket on you at all times, with the milk on your hotbar while on the surface to counter witches’ potions, and the water while mining just in case you run into lava and need to put yourself out. If mining in the The Nether, put a Fire resistance Potion instead of your water bucket in case you mine into lava.
Be careful when updating sand or gravel, as it can fall and suffocate you or drop you into hazards.
When you find enough gold, make a golden apple, put it in your hotbar, and never remove it. This could save you and is by far the best use of gold. A potion of healing also works, preferably a splash potion as you can use it faster and it hurts undead mobs, like zombies. On a similar note, always keep a weapon on your hotbar. If you are lucky enough to find an Enchanted Golden Apple, also put it in your hotbar.
Don’t worry about storing items away. If you die, you will lose everything regardless if you stored or not. It is important, however, to clear out inventory clutter. Keep anything useful in organized chests and in your Ender Chest so it can be retrieved quickly.
The Curse of Vanishing enchantment doesn’t affect anything.
It is recommended to avoid armor with the Curse of Binding enchantment, because once you put it on, you can’t get it off unless it breaks or you die. This is also good advice for regular worlds, but the consequences are far less in regular survival than in hardcore. If you put on a pumpkin head or a mob head with the enchantment, you will never be able to remove them as they cannot break.
Avoid woodland mansions until you have at least full enchanted diamond armor and a diamond sword. The evokers are dangerous, but more so are the vexes they spawn, as they dodge constantly and can go through blocks, usually spawned in groups of 3 or more. Vindicators can deal very heavy damage to the player, killing the player in a few hits even with Protection 4 netherite armor.
Kill any Iron golem that villages spawn with lava or pillar up three-block high and do not use them for protection. It’s a tempting idea, but if you misclick and provoke them they can KILL you IN 1 HIT (full iron armor set). Even with Protection 4 netherite armor, they can kill you very quickly if you get stuck.
It is possible to lose up to 19 and 16 HP, while using a protection 4 diamond and netherite armor set when a creeper explodes. Consider using Blast Protection gear (if possible) when exploring caves as it brings down the max damage to 10 and 9 HP. Note that these values are worst-case scenarios, but worth considering if planning to continue after beating the game.
If you believe that it is difficult to win a fight, just flee. Taking the risk can lead to death or losing a revival item such as the totem of undying or a golden apple.
Never AFK on hardcore mode. The last thing you want is to come back and realize that you got killed. If you must AFK, pause the game, and if you are trying to AFK overnight to get lots of items from automatic farms, block yourself in to prevent a single mob from coming in and killing you.
Accept that at some point you will die and lose your world. You will never be safe and you will never be safe, so prepare for that moment to say goodbye to your world. If you want to build something huge and don’t want to mess with backups, you have to admit that one day you will lose all your hard work.
You should have a copied world in case of death, especially if you are a new hardcore player. Once you are more experienced, you will no longer want and need a world of relief. At this point, you need to play without a save world.
If you explore in the end, be very careful, because falling into the void will be an instant death and this is the only situation where the totem of immortality can not save you. Equipping Elytra and missile fireworks can save your world if you have a quick enough reaction. On this Note, it is usually much safer to build bridges instead of throwing Ender beads. Even if its construction takes a long time, it will serve as a permanent route between the islands, and the Pearl has a relatively high chance of hitting towards the island and making you die in the void. If you are really paranoid, build a railing on your deck.
Always keep the totem of immortality in your hands. At some point, it will save your life. If you have several, bring a few spare parts with you to quickly put them back in your hands.
Do not react to the pressure of others. You are the only one who really knows your skill level. Don’t make stupid mistakes, like trying to impress your friends with things like 4-block lava jumps. If you really feel that something is too dangerous for you, do not do it and find an easy way out. You may be too full of yourself and think you are invincible to death or too good for safety, but it doesn’t matter. If you choose to do this risky behavior, take precautions (such as a totem of immortality or a refractory Potion) in case you fail.
Be very careful with the elytra, as it is very easy to crash into the ground or block, possibly killing the player. To be 100% sure, always land in the water or keep the totem of immortality on landing.
Remember that you can pause the game to think.
If it has not yet been fixed when you fall off a cliff, stop and leave your world, and then log in to reset the fall counter, reducing or canceling the damage caused by the fall.
Always have a bucket of water in your hot bar. It can save your life.
Endermens can be dangerous, so before you fight with one of them, build a roof 2 blocks high above you, as endermens is too big to fit. The same trick also works for faded skeletons.
Never fight crowds in a herd if you don’t have: 1. shield and 2. There is a Liana in the Horde. For some reason, you can block the EXPLOSION, thereby killing or damaging all the monsters in range. It’s risky, but IMO (in my opinion), it’s worth it.
Settings and options
There are many ways, both in the game and in others, to change aspects of hardcore mode.
Try to maximize the frame rate.
Close all other applications.
Weigh the benefits of features that can cause low FPS (like particles, chart type, Etc.))
In particular, reducing the rendering distance (in [Esc] > Options > video settings) can significantly improve FPS and reduce latency peaks. In addition to performance, leaving the rendering Distance at Level 2 effectively prevents almost all monsters from spawning in low light conditions, negating the biggest problem associated with hardcore mode. Note however that this may seem like a scam and may reduce the pleasure of the experience.
Jungles and waterfalls cause a lag in low-level systems. In some cases, the client-side fragment update delay becomes instantly fatal. Consider restarting the game or reducing the radius of your room if you spawn in the jungle or mountains.
In the video settings, set the brightness to “bright” to make things a little easier, or “grumpy” for more complexity.
Use the sound. Listen to everything; creeping plants make sounds while walking through the blocks. Parrots can be even more useful for these purposes.
Even if you have sounds enabled, use subtitles; they can alert the player if there are sounds nearby.
Avoid using unknown resource packages. Sometimes it can be very useful to get a resource package that slightly changes some textures (for example, slightly lightening the texture of the lower brick, it becomes more obvious where it is safe to walk in the lower fortresses), but first you need to get used to the textures in normal survival.
Turn on the hitboxes. It is very useful to see monsters in the dark.
Choosing a seed (instead of using a random seed) can control the world. This can vary the complexity in many ways.
For example, an uncharted island in the middle of the sea is easy to control by a spawning crowd, while in the mountains and ravines, creeping plants that descend from the heights can easily surprise you.
A seed with a solid inside the mushroom field biome would greatly facilitate the process of reaching the final portal.
If you know the world well from survival mode, you can use its seed (or the Recreate button) to take advantage of this knowledge in hardcore mode.
Some players choose to save their hardcore world in case they die (especially before entering the end). Many people consider this a scam, because it can “spoil” the feel and purpose of hardcore mode.
Although if you really don’t want to lose your hardcore world, feel free to create a backup World.
The rules of the game can be used to increase the difficulty. Example: in ultra hardcore mode, natural regeneration is disabled. The only way to restore health is to consume golden apples, enchanted golden apples, a fully charged beacon, or use potions such as instant health or regeneration.
Command: / gamerule naturalRegeneration false
You can also enable debugging information reduction, which makes it much easier to get lost in the world and practically requires the use of maps and compasses.
Hiding places are very important, especially on hardcore. Building a suitable shelter will make hardcore mode a little less difficult. Shelters are never optional for the night, although they can be temporary.
Mushroom field biomes are very safe places to settle, as hostile mobs do not breed under normal conditions.
A shelter built over an ocean far from land can also be very safe from hostile crowds, unless you are near an ocean monument. However, the drowned can spawn in the oceans, which makes them less safe. It is recommended to build your shelter a few blocks above the ocean, just in case the drowned or the ocean monuments.
It is better to build shelters from explosion-resistant materials, especially in the underworld. Cobblestones are cheap, although Obsidian should be used for permanent shelters if possible.
Make your shelter as visible as possible. Proper lighting outside the shelter adds visibility and prevents enemy mobs from spawning nearby. Also, a large tower can help visibility from a distance (but make sure you can go down safely!)
Zombies can break wooden doors; however, iron doors require six ingots to make and need Redstone’s power. To solve this problem, use a fence gate with a pressure plate inside the shelter so that it closes automatically. One door will not prevent the skeletons from pulling on it, so the second door can be placed above the first. In addition, you can place the door so that its “open” state blocks the entrance, preventing zombies from causing damage.
Because shady tree canopies will protect skeletons and zombies from burning, build a covered tree farm to safely collect logs and apples when needed. For the same reason, it’s a good idea to cut trees within 24 blocks of your shelter and fully illuminate the resulting field.
Even small farms with wheat, potatoes, chickens and cows can be a major asset. Use wheat and seeds to breed animals for meat and other drops. Covered farms are safer. Pigs are good because pork chops can be safely eaten raw if you are caught off guard.
Keep in mind the coordinates of your base, assuming you can get them.
Building a wall around your base can be extremely rewarding.
Never enter a cave unprepared if you are surrounded or stuck. Always carry blocks, weapons, food, torches and armor.
Be careful with cave spiders. The poison can not really kill you, but it will greatly weaken you. Fight cave spiders only if you desperately need ropes or spider eyes. If you need Spider drops, it is better to fight simple spiders or loot dungeons if you have a choice.
Diamonds are not very difficult to find if you travel to deep caves. They also have a 23% higher spawning rate. However, common dangers are monsters, lava and waterfalls. The least you need is iron armor and a stone sword.
If you accidentally fall into the lava in the upper world, swim to the surface and place water on (not under) the lava. Thus, the formed Obsidian can provide you with a path to retirement.
The damage caused by the fall can be avoided by placing water to break the fall.
Never dig directly down or up. Digging directly down can cause the player to fall into the lava or a Horde of monsters, and digging directly up can cause a falling block, such as sand or gravel, to fall and strangle the player, or the lava spurts and burns the player. It is better to dig directly up or down on a wider scheme to have a platform on which to stand before digging the blocks. Having a platform with a block on top can help the player avoid falling blocks without dying.
Remember that a torch on the ground will break the gravel and sand that will fall on it. This can save you from burial if you dig straight (although you still have problems if you rush into water, lava or a bunch of monsters).
If you have thumb buttons, assign them to your weapon and bucket of water. If the bucket is not available or you are in the underworld, equip it with a solid block instead. If you do not have a shield, it is better to put torches or food in your hand, since they can be used with an equipped sword.
Sword. Use the best material available and discard the damaged/weaker swords.
Axe / Shovel. An ax can cut the path of wood and save daylight. One can be used as an emergency weapon if your sword breaks. Shovels are not needed if the player does not do much digging.
Onion. Take care of ammunition and use it only on witches, skeletons and lianas. Skeletal arrows can be avoided by building a 2-block mud pole and hiding behind it.
Hoe. Indispensable in cavernous systems or underworld. Use an iron or diamond pickaxe, if any. Can be used as a weapon of last resort.
The bucket with water. They can turn you off, avoid damage in the event of a fall, allow you to safely descend from the mountains or save you from endermen.
Fire resistance Potion. It can save lives if you do mining or exploration near lava in the underworld.
Torch. Very convenient when studying cave systems. Place them on the right walls when you go further so you can remember how to get out.
Dirt. Very common, can be broken without tools and does not obey gravity. Can be used to climb walls, build bridges, create fast shelters, stop skeleton arrows or prevent endermens from touching you.
Steak. As abundant and effective as boiled pork chops, but killing cows will also give you skin. Keep your hungry bar full when your health is not complete. Golden apples can be used in dangerous situations.
Healing objects. Items such as Golden Apples and Enchanted golden apples, as well as potions can save your life by fighting crowds or trying to swim out of the lava.
(By The Way) Shield. They can block the skeleton arrows from pushing you and reduce the damage caused by attacks. It is better to have it in hand so that you can attack and defend more easily than without it.
The Totem Of Immortality. They can help you cheat death. Extremely useful. With their help, you can save your world.
Step-by-step guide to hardcore
Duration: 5-20 minutes
Find the nearest tree and hit it. Collect only 4 logs to save time.
Create a craft table.
Make a wooden pickaxe.
Find the nearest stone and collect 9 blocks to get started. If there is no stone nearby, dig a corner mine in the ground to reach the stone.
Make a stone axe, stone pickaxe, stone shovel and stone sword.
Take about half a cup of logs.
Kill pigs, cows and sheep to get at least 12 pieces of meat. Catch the mushrooms if you see. Having food now is worth the effort it will take to find more animals later.
Since it is safer to jump early at night, try to kill enough sheep to make a bed.
If you do not have a bed to spend the night, make Prey from branches under your shelter so that you can get iron.
Start looking for a cave system, although it’s best not to explore the cave or ravine so early.
Don’t make any stops. It is safer to walk during the day with at least Iron Armor.
Duration: 15-60 minutes
At this point, find a cave or create a mine (like a branched mine). Although it is generally safer to build a mine, the use of existing caves is often faster. Going down deep, avoid risks. It can be very dark at first, so watch carefully for monsters and ores. Be sure to turn on everything that is at hand and do not get lost. It is often very useful to use signs or another discernible block to indicate a path. The right rule for torches is recommended.
Coal is the first resource to be found. Because inventory management will become a challenge, try to keep the coal pile as close as possible to 64, but not above, holding the same number of torches in your hands. If necessary, store the artisanal coal blocks additionally.
The next important resource is iron. 64 ingots will probably suffice; stacking piles and piles is not necessary, except for longer games. When the equipment is almost exhausted or you have just enough iron, find a safe place and install a few ovens to quickly melt/cook food. Make in this order: an iron sword, a shield, a pair of buckets (filling one with water), Iron Armor, an iron pickaxe and an iron shovel. Also, throw away all the wooden tools and store your stone tools.
Once you are fully equipped, go further and collect the diamonds. Only seven are needed, although better more (2 for the Sword, 3 for the pickaxe and 2 for the Magic table. These complete armors count up to 31 diamonds.) Use a diamond pickaxe to get at least 10 pieces of obsidian for the lower portal and the spell table (4 are enough if the player builds the portal with a bucket).
It is difficult to have too much gold, because it is good for making golden apples. A normal Golden Apple requires 8 ingots, and after update 1.9, enchanted golden apples cannot be made. Do not forget to take a little Redstone to make potions. Lapis lazuli is needed to create enchantments, so do not forget to get it if you find it.
This sums up the whole mining you will have to do in hardcore mode. If you have assembled enough strings to make a bow at some point, feel free to make it and use it with the arrows that dropped the skeletons. If you come across a mine, be careful. Avoid the cave spiders, but loot all the chests.
When you get home, make an infinite water source, and then build farms for wheat, carrots, and maybe potatoes. If you have pumpkin seeds, cocoa beans and/or melons, grow them too. Sugar cane is very important (for shelves), so spread out and collect up to 3 piles of this cane.
Wheat, seeds and carrots can be used to attract and breed animals, which will result in large amounts of meat and resources over time, which is worth it. You will need chickens (arrows) and cows (shelves). It is good to tame cats to scare lianas and Wolves to fight.
Many resources (including shelves and enchanted Diamond Equipment) can be collected by exchanging, although leveling the villagers can be a fairly long process.
Duration: 30 minutes – 2 hours
The underworld can be very dangerous, so be prepared and try to bring:
Enchanted golden apples can make the first trip to the underworld much safer, because you probably have no fire resistance Potions, and an Apple can provide 5 minutes of fire resistance. Try to keep at least one in your exploration of the afterlife to use on your first trip to the underworld, and when you are inside the Fortress of the underworld, use it to help you against dangerous flame groups or use it in any emergency situation, such as gasta’s knockbacks. Remember that you can be reborn only in spectator mode.
At least one piece of golden armor must be worn to avoid piglin attacks.
Gold bars can be used to trade with pyglins to obtain refractory potions and Ender beads, as well as other items.
Diamond sword, iron armor and pickaxe. (Iron picks, or better yet, are good, but they break the void very quickly), the bow (and at least 32 arrows, unless he is enchanted by Infinity). Be sure to enchant everything with a skill enchantment of 1 point. It costs almost nothing, but can make a difference.
Flint and steel to re-ignite disabled Gates. If you find yourself without them, they can sometimes be found in an underground fortress.
No less than 16 firewood. You can cut huge mushrooms from firewood if you are near a Raspberry forest or a Crooked Forest. Bones can also be brought to these places to make bone meal, both to grow huge mushrooms, and to create additional mushrooms. However, operating a forest farm outside the appropriate biomes will require a touch of silk, as mushrooms will only grow on the appropriate type of nylium.
If you are not near a crimson or twisted wood, you can bring bones, mud and seedlings. So it is possible to start a tree farm (ideally in a sheltered place, since the trees are easily flammable). Making a forest farm in this way is also easier, since there is no need to touch silk and bone meal, although the latter can still be used to grow trees faster. If you run out of bone meal, you can kill the desiccated skeletons for their bones, but this is very risky and not recommended, because it requires finding a lower fortress, and you may also encounter Flames.
All iron ingots, coal and food (remember that you could only be reborn in spectator mode.)
The pile is another paver as an emergency blocking material. Gastas can’t destroy the pavement.
Pile-another sand or gravel can be useful for descent on steep slopes. Be careful: shooting from the top of the pile during the descent is usually deadly.
Boiler because you can really put water in the boilers, so if you accidentally set yourself on fire, you can quickly extinguish yourself by jumping into the boiler.
Some dangerous aspects of the underworld:
Гасты. Their fireballs can seriously damage untrained players or disable portals. Without Flint and steel or Fire charges, another fireball must enter the portal to activate it again.
Falling great distances. Even with careful movement, an explosion can easily destroy the terrain, which can lead to a fatal fall on blocks or even into lava.
Wash. There are many small pockets of lava in the vacuum, in addition to the sea of lava. Lava is much more dangerous in the underworld, because its flow is faster and will flow further. Because water can not be placed in the underworld, refractory potions are very useful.
Fall damage. It is very easy to be killed by a fall to the underworld.
Piglins. The attacked pig will attract others. Beware of rough piglin. Although they only appear in the rest of the stronghold, they are extremely powerful with 50 health points and 19 damage enough to kill a player in a few moves when the player is stuck (even with noetherite armor protection). In fact, they are the second most powerful crowd of the void(only weaker than withered). They are always hostile and will make other pyglins attack you too. Avoid rough pig at all costs.
Blaze. Although they are not very difficult on their own and under controlled circumstances, in groups of three or more people, they can pose a significant problem. An unexpected attack of a single epidemic can be fatal.
Endermans. Although they are rare, they can be dangerous when provoked due to their teleportation ability and high health, especially when accompanied by an inflamed or withered skeleton.
The skeletons are fading. Although they only appear in the lower fortresses, they can be the deadliest lower crowd; they are fast, strong, and have a status wilting effect.
The void contains four things that can be crucial to your adventure:
Lower warts-they are necessary to brew any useful potion. They are quite common in the lower fortresses. Five is enough, but it’s better to take everything. Gather at least six blocks of sand for the farm to begin.
Flaming stick – it is necessary to forge the eyes of Ender. It is also used for making the brewing stand and cooking resistance and fire resistance potions. To get them, you will have to kill Blaze. It is better to fight a lone flame first so as not to be overwhelmed. Find two stems (one if you already have a magma cream); once you have them (and your lower wart), step back to cook some fire resistance potions. Gather more Stems after applying refractory potions, but remember that refractory potions do not cancel fiery melee attacks. For the main battle against the Flames, find a closed spawner and kill him with the sword. It saves arrows and saves drops. About 12 fire bars should be more than enough.
Gast tears – are used for regeneration potions. However, gastas are dangerous, and their drops are often destroyed.
Luminous dust-used to strengthen potions. The glowing stone sometimes appears in the lower fortresses, otherwise look for it on the low ceilings of the void. In addition, it allows you to create spectral Arrows, the effect is only a visual aid, but each creation it means +1 free arrow in exchange for light dust. Keep in mind that spectral Arrows are consumed even if the bow is enchanted by Infinity.
Hell survival: if there are no hell fortresses nearby, you may have to spend a lot of time in the underworld. Food reserves can be easily replenished using very abundant mushrooms or killing Hogwarts who drop pork chops. Use distinctive torches or non-combustible blocks such as cobblestones, mud, or craft tables to mark the path to the portal. After collecting all the necessary supplies, return to the afterlife.
Exploration of the aerial world
Duration: 1-8 hours
At the moment, most of the necessary supplies must already be purchased, including 15 shelves. Choose a direction and leave. Wolves often cost bones, so recruit someone nearby.
Remember that the villages will provide you with good combat and rescue equipment. Loot one if possible, but finding them can be a bit difficult.
At the moment, there are two main goals: Ender Pearl and Experience. In addition, it is very useful to have a poultry farm at this stage, because it takes feathers to make arrows. In addition, stock up on food and firewood. At night, be constantly in motion. Search for the endermens by killing any threatening mob, or a safer alternative would be trading in the pearls of Ender with the inhabitants of the priests. In addition, kill as many ghosts as possible and make at least 6 Slow-Falling extended potions. After accumulating levels, enchant weapons and tools:
Bow (20 Skill points). Infinity is very useful, but it is rare (probability of 10%). Strength will also help.
Sword (30 skill points). The most useful spell is acuity. The fire aspect is useless against most lower monsters (with the exception of Pyglins and Hoglins), but is ultimately very useful as the endermens become neutral during combustion.
Plan to collect 16-20 ender beads and turn them into Ender eyes. Do not forget to be conservative when using them, because they sometimes break when throwing and sometimes not. Once you have found the end portal, gently dig the ladder down. Once inside the fortress, destroy the spawning of silver fish and plunder this place. Attach the shelter near the portal to prepare for the end.
Duration: 10-40 minutes
These items are recommended to complete:
Diamond or noetherite sword, pickaxe, bow and Full Diamond Armor. Enchant all unloved tools. Opt for IV defense on armor, at least IV sharpness on Sword and V strength on Bow. A pickaxe may have lower enchantment levels, but it is recommended to use at least an efficiency III to more quickly destroy the iron bars surrounding some of the finished crystals.
Make sure all material has as many uses as possible (at least 100 durability). Make sure that nothing breaks in the middle of the fight.
Somewhere between 128 and 256 arrows, unless you use an infinite bow, then only one arrow is needed.
Snowballs can break the end crystals. The most Compact way to store snowballs is in snow blocks.
At least 4 stacks of meals, preferably a steak or cooked pork chops. Golden carrots are even better, but more expensive.
Some Obsidian piles for construction.
Two buckets of water to distract the endermans. Buckets of water can also be used to break the fall as a last resort.
At least one enchanted Golden Apple. If you have others, feel free to bring them. Remember that you can only be reborn in spectator mode
Regeneration Potions, about four of each type:
Advanced regeneration Potions. Must be active after taking damage, if not a little earlier.
Splash potion regeneration II, for quick healing.
Power Potions. If storage space is not an issue, use Level II potions. Take two extended potions or six of the second level.
Splash healing potion II. If melons are available, fill all the remaining space in the inventory with healing potions. Before you get into the end, Learn how to distinguish them from regeneration potions.
At least one spare ender bead to teleport to earth if your respawn point is above the void. A dragon can easily knock you out in the first few seconds, much earlier than you can build yourself on safer ground. They are useful to avoid falling damage (or falling into the void) if the dragon throws you high into the air. They are also useful in reaching the outer islands without returning to the upper world after killing the Ender dragon, but the endermens are finally a convenient source of them after the dragon dies.
At least 3 slow-falling prolonged potions. Apply a slow fall before the fight and apply it during the fight if it passes. Dragon ender attacks deal big damage by throwing players high into the air or off the island. A slow fall will negate the effects of fall damage, allowing you to fall back safely. If you are ejected from an island, a slow fall can be used to slide towards the island.
A carved pumpkin, because the endermens will not become unfriendly if you wear it. Switching to the third-person perspective will eliminate the difficulty of vision caused by carved pumpkins when worn. Be careful when wearing a carved pumpkin instead of a helmet, you will have fewer armor points and you will not be affected by any enchantments on the helmet.
Once you have collected and organized your inventory, jump into the portal and Meet Your Destiny. Entering the ending, the first task is to remove the final crystals, as they will heal the dragon. Use arrows (or snowballs) to remove all the tricks while avoiding the Ender dragon. If you can not avoid it before taking out the crystals, feel free to attack so as not to be blown or dropped from the island.
In doing all this, be careful not to look at any of the endermens. It is much more difficult to fight the Ender dragon when the endermens also attack.
Once all the ultimate crystals have been destroyed, aim for the Ender Dragon, once again avoiding looking at the endermens. If the dragon throws you into the air, quickly drink a slowly falling potion. Continue until the Dragon Ender is defeated. Gather orbs of experience and enter the portal to see the credits, then return to the afterlife.
