The End is the last dimension players can explore in Minecraft, which unlocks after they have beaten the Ender Dragon. Because of that, it is a very hard and unforgiving area, with an endless void that could kill any player. In this article, we are going to showcase the 5 most useful items for exploring the End in Minecraft.

1. Carved Pumpkin helmet

A carved pumpkin is a carved version of a pumpkin that can be worn or used to spawn golems. It can be made by using shears on a pumpkin placed in the world. When wearing a Carved Pumpkin, all Endermen would ignore the player.

As the most common mobs in the End are Endermen, having this helmet is a must, as getting attacked by them constantly is not fun at all. Players would still get attacked if they hit first, of course.

2. Ender Chest

Ender chests are a type of chest whose contents are exclusive to each player and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. By bringing this chest, players can farm whatever they want in the end and store the resources into the Ender chest for later usage.

Ender chests are a super useful item system that allows players to access their loot anywhere.

Furthermore, it is possible to greatly increase the space of an ender chest by pairing it with shulker boxes, which can be farmed easily in the End. Just fill the shulker boxes with the desired items, then place them inside the ender chest.

3. Potion of Slow Falling

Outside of Endermen, the only other threat in the End realm are shulkers. As they drop the critically useful component for crafting shulker boxes, preparing a countermeasure to these mobs is a must.

This allows players to deal with shulker more easily, ignoring their dangerous attacks.

Shulkers' attacks are not that dangerous outside of the levitate effect which can cause players to fall to their death. By using a potion of Slow Falling, players would not take any fall damage when they land. Getting an Elytra is also a good idea as well.

4. Strong Building blocks

Endermen can spawn and move blocks to ruin your structure. To prevent this from happening, the house should not be made of blocks that endermen can pick up, such as grass blocks. Instead, use stronger building blocks, such as any sort of stone or planks, that endermen can't move.

Players also need a lot of blocks for building bridges between End islands as well, so bring a few stacks of them.

5. Ender Pearls

This is a very important item that players need to carry at all times when exploring the End. While falling into the void, they can just throw ender pearl at the surface of a block to teleport and survive.
