The end – official minecraft wiki m gastrocnemius medialis

All players will begin their exploration of the End on the central island. They will appear at X=100, Y=49, Z=0, facing west (negative X) on top of a 5×5×1 obsidian platform, generated either on or within the island, or at a relatively small distance from it.

Once one enters the End, the only way out is to defeat the ender dragon, or die. The dragon will spawn naturally and fly around above a number of obsidian pillars arranged in a circular fashion around 0,0. On top of each pillar lies an end crystal, some protected by cages of iron bars.

Once defeated, the ender dragon will explode, drop up to 70 levels of experience orbs, activate the exit portal and create a gateway portal. Atop the exit portal lies a dragon egg. After slaying the ender dragon, it can be respawned an unlimited number of times by placing four end crystals upon the exit portal. Evey time you respawn and slay the dragon, another gateway portal will be generated, up to a maximum of 20; however, it will not drop another dragon egg.

When the player enters the exit portal, the " end poem" and the credits will roll shortly afterwards, thus "completing" Minecraft. The player will then re- spawn in the Overworld and may return to the End through the same portal; the End will remain in the same state as the player left it.

When the player enters one of the gateway portals that generate, they are instantly teleported over the 1000 block void to the outer End islands. These gateway portals can only be entered through the use of ender pearls, minecarts or through skilled use of elytra, due to the one block tall gap between the bedrock blocks.

These outer islands generate infinitely, topped with a forest of chorus trees that may be harvested for its fruit. One may find end cities and end ships on these islands, which hold highly valuable loot, including elytra and the dragon head.

The End is home to only 3 naturally occurring mobs. Endermen will spawn naturally throughout the entire dimension. The dragon only spawns once naturally on the central island, but can be respawned by placing 4 end crystals on each side of the portal. Shulkers appear only on the outer islands, within End cities, and do not respawn once killed. Other mobs, excluding bosses, may be sent into the End through an End portal.

Notch first mentioned the End with his comment regarding the theoretical name-change of the endermen – some players petitioned Mojang to have the mob renamed "Far Landers", a reference to the Far Lands. He joked that instead of renaming the mobs Far Landers, he was more likely to change the name of the Far Lands to "the End".

Reddit user "cptqwashi" posted the idea that the new dimension would be called "the Ender", and would be home to the endermen and ender dragons. Notch soon gave more information and said that cptqwashi was "100% correct." [1] However, it was later revealed that it was just called "the End" and that there would be only one ender dragon there.

Several years later, Jeb explained the reason behind the shift from the Sky Dimension to The End: "[The Sky Dimension] didn’t work so well because of how light is calculated […] The Sky Dimension originally had this top down light that the Overworld has, so you get like shadows in caves and such. But performance wise, it didn’t work – it was extremely slow. So we removed the sun – now everything is evenly lit unless you’ve got a torch." [3]
