When you defeat the Ender Dragon in the Minecraft game, there will be a Dragon Egg. It is a decorative, egg-shaped block and it is only dropped by the death of the first Ender Dragon, not respawned Ender Dragons. After you successfully defeat the Ender Dragon and see the Dragon egg, you may want to hatch the egg. How to do it?
We can say that the Dragon egg is an award that you get because you have successfully defeated the Ender Dragon in Minecraft. So, how to hatch it? You are not able to hatch it, but you are able to add it to your inventory by following the steps below.
- If you have killed the Ender Dragon, you will see a structure which appears. It is built of bedrock with void blocks and an egg. You just have to punch it once to teleport it about 15 to 20 blocks.
- You need to begin digging next to the egg, reach down 3 blocks and then dig the side where the egg has been kept and you have to put a bed there.
- After that, you have to break the blocks which are in between the bed and the egg.
- The egg will fall on the bed and break and it permits you to be able to bring it home with you. To bring it home, you just have to get in the bedrock structure.
Besides the method above, another way that you are able to do to collect the egg to your inventory is to use a piston. According to Minecraft Wiki, you are able to make sure that the portal around the egg is fully covered before putting down a piston. It is done to prevent the egg from falling into the portal. After that, you have to put down the piston adjacent to the egg and then activate the piston. Now, the egg will drop as an item.
There is also another strategy that you can choose to get the Dragon Egg. After you obtain it, you are able to build a redstone farm named a gravity block duplicator. It will permit the dragon egg to be farmed and also it permits you to be able to duplicate other gravity blocks such as gravel and sand.
Now, you have known how to get the Dragon Egg after you defeated the Ender Dragon. But, you may not know how to defeat the Ender Dragon. It is important for you to know if you want to get the egg. If you want to defeat him, you can take down the towers. You have to notice that there are some obsidian towers which have beacons on top to be able to heal the Ender Dragon when he flies by. Either you are able to hack these using a sword or you can just shoot them by using a bow and arrow. If you have done it, it will be quite an easy fight and you need to be able to take the Ender Dragon down in a few minutes. If you are in Creative, you are able to defeat him quicker than when you are in Survival mode.
