How to Hatch the Ender Dragon Egg in Minecraft

Posted on

Dragon Egg refers to a decorative, egg-shaped block, that is dropped after defeating the Ender Dragon in The End. This one is only dropped by the death of the first Ender Dragon, not respawned Ender Dragons. This guide teaches you how to hatch the Ender Dragon in Minecraft. You are able to do this in all versions of the game by going back to the end.

The first thing that you have to do to hatch the Ender Dragon in Minecraft is to meet the prerequisites. To hatch the Ender Dragon in the game, you must have killed the Ender Dragon, and you must have a portal available to travel back to The End. Then, gather the important resources.


You will need these ingredients to hatch the dragon:

  • 4 Ender Pearls: You can get these by killing Endermen, as they usually drop 1-2 Ender Pearls.
  • 2 Blaze Rods: You can get them by killing Blazes in the Nether, as they occasionally drop 1-2 Blaze Rods.
  • 4 Ghast Tears: You can get these by killing Ghasts, as they occasionally drop Ghast Tears. A thing called Looting Sword should help significantly at this. Apparently, Ghasts are found in the Nether.
  • 28 Glass blocks: These are made by smelting sand blocks in a furnace.

The next thing that you have to do is to open your Crafting Table. Selecting the Crafting Table will open the crafting interface. After that, craft Blaze Powder. Please place your two Blaze Rods in the idle square of the crafting interface, click or tap the stack of your Blaze Powder, and click or tap your inventory in order to move the Blaze Powder to your inventory. If you have console editions, you can scroll over to the Food tab, choose the Blaze Powder icon, and press A or X twice.

The fifth step is to craft four Eyes of Ender. You need to place the four Ender Pearls in the middle square of the crafting interface, place the stack of four Blaze Powder in the middle-left square of the crafting interface, and then move the Eyes of Ender into your inventory. If you use the console, scroll over to the Tools and Weapons tab, choose the Clock icon, scroll down to the Eye of Ender icon, and press A or X four times.

After that, craft four End Crystals. Place your four Eyes of Ender in the middle square, place the four ghast tears in the bottom-middle square, and place four glass blocks in each remaining square. When the violet End Crystal icon shows up, you are able to move the End Crystal to your inventory. On console, scroll over to the Mechanisms tab, choose the End Crystal icon, and press A or X four times.

When it is one, go back to The End. Then, place the End Crystals. The last thing that you have to do is to wait for the dragon to hatch. Apparently, it will hatch within around 20 seconds, at which point you are able to fight it again.
