    If you need to enter the end, see my guide on how to get there.

    Now that you are in the end, you will see that you have spawned on an obsidian platform. This can be either floating above the void or completely underground. DO NOT place any items on this platform, especially chests, as they will despawn if you return to the end later. Make your way to the island surface and you will see multiple obsidian towers that the dragon flies around. On top of every tower is an end crystal that you have to destroy. These crystals heal the dragon, so it is impossible to kill it without destroying these.

    If you have a bow and arrow, you can try to shoot these crystals to destroy them from afar. Otherwise, you will have to build your way up to the top of each tower and hit the crystal to destroy it. (Two of the taller towers have iron cages surrounding the crystals, so you have to build up anyway). If you need more blocks, you are surrounded by useful end stone blocks. Be carful when climbimng the towers as the dragon can sometimes knock you off!

    After destroying the crystals, it is time to fight the dragon. A lot of people think you need a bow and arrow for this, but you do not. The dragon likes to go to the middle bedrock structure and sit for awhile, giving you a chance to whack it with your sword. If you build a two block high pedestal underneath it, its bad breath will not be able to hit you here and it is easier to hit it. Now just do this until it dies!

    Note: If you are also planning on respawning the dragon, do not tamper with the obsidian towers themselves. You have to build a tower next to the obsidian.

    DrakeCastleUmmm...sooo...anyone else having issues where the dragon just glitches out and disappears? I really don't want to have to start another world where the portal is 400 kilometers away (again)

    Weekend Zombi@DrakeCastle I have the same problem on my imported world. Every enderman in the end aggros onto me if i get near them and the dragon will despawn 30 seconds after i respawn him.

    Jack KanophIf the dragon despawns from the end, it's highly likely that he appears in the overworld. Happened for me, still able to kill him outside the overworld, but it became even more of a pain in the ass, because he would fly all the down to bedrock then back up, then back down. Achievement popped. ... one time it happened where he despawned and two dragons appeared in the overworld

    Adept ConquerorYou should bring certain items if your are attempting to kill the dragon. Bring multiple strength II potions for chopping at him when he's perched (above the portal). Also bring plenty of golden apples for in case things get hairy and also bring enderpearls. You should bring these because you can pearl into the side of the iron bar cages, break a hole in them and then jump off. You need a water bucket to do this safely. I suggest bring enchanted diamond armor for the fight and an infinity bow. (get the diamonds using a fortune III pickaxe) Break as many crystals as you can, but you can leave a few and it is still easy to kill him. Always look at the enderdragon if possible because then endermen won't agro and you can shoot arrows at it if it charges at you. Doing this also allows you to dodge the ender charges. If you entered the end with iron gear then you probably got slaughtered by endermen, ender charges or being thrown by the dragon either off the edge, or to your death. I beat it no deaths.

    Mr MahHaDude either this version is broken (very likely) or they made this fight absurdly hard compared to the other versions. I had no problem with this fight solo on the Xbox one/Xbox 360 version. All the enderman aggro the second the fight starts even if I’m nowhere even near them, if the dragon slightly hits me, it shoots me off the map or the dragon’s breath one shots me (at full health with full enchanted diamond armor on). Sometimes if I’m lucky the game will just crash the second I drop into the portal.
