How to fight the dragon

Tonight I learned how to fight the dragon in #Minecraft.

Preparation

Nice to have:

  • armor with protection
  • bow with power
  • sword with sharpening
  • stength/health/regen potions
  • pumpkin head
  • snowballs

Must have:

  • golden apple, speed potion,
  • pickaxe, bow, arrows, sword & shield, armor
  • stack of dirt/cobblestone, buckets of water, ladders

I proceeded to The End. I picked a fight with a dragon and its pesky posse of ender men (pumpkin head helps). I learned to:

  • dodge the purple dragon breath
  • dodge or block dragon dives with the sheild
  • destroy crystals

    • with bow or snowballs for shorter towers
    • for taller towers, dump water at tower base, climb with ladder, then break crystal and fall into water
  • with a sword strike dragon’s feet when it sits on the pillar of bedrock
  • use looted ender pearls to teleport dodge

In The End, I died.
