Are Aether Portals Real in Minecraft?

Posted on

In Minecraft, an Aether Portal is a special structure. It permits you to be able to go to the Aether by walking through the blue swirls. But, is this portal real in the game? If you are very curious about it, let’s find out the facts about it.

Well, the Aether Portal is real in Minecraft. You are able to make it by creating a five by four frame out of Glowstone blocks and then you have to pour a Bucket of water inside the frame. It will activate the portal and make the blue swirls. You may wonder about the design of this portal. Well, this portal is designed to have a look like the opposite of Nether Portals. However, instead of the dark Obsidian block, you are able to use the bright Glowstone blocks to be able to make the frame of an Aether Portal.


If you want to activate the portal, you have to use a Bucket of Water at the bottom of the portal frame. It is the same way as using Flint and Steel to activate Nether Portal. Before making an Aether Portal, you have to make a Nether Portal. It is because Glowstone is needed to make the portal. So, it is better for you to search for water, lava and diamond if you have an intention to go to the Aether. However, it is important for you to know that Aether Portals do not work in the Nether.

In the newer versions, Aether portal is able to be made before a player gets into the Nether. It is because Glowstone is able to be found easily by hunting Witches at night or by trading with Villagers. You need to know that this method is not effective because Witches are very strong and only have an uncommon chance of dropping Glowstone Dust. If you want to make one Growstone block, you will need four Glowstone Dust.

It is also important for you to know that trading with Villagers is effective. However, you will need some Emeralds to be able to get enough Glowstone to build a portal. If you want to build a portal without edges, you will need ten Glowstone. If you want to build a full Aether portal, you will need fourteen Glowstone blocks.
