The Ender Dragon is a Boss Mob in Minecraft that only spawns in the End dimension in Minecraft. She is the largest naturally spawning mob in the game and is widely acknowledged as the final boss of Minecraft. This is because after slaying the dragon, you’re greeted with special on-screen texts.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 useful items for fighting the Ender Dragon in Minecraft.

1. Diamond or Netherite armor

With the Ender Dragon being the final boss of Minecraft, having your best armor when fighting her is a must.

Netherite items are more powerful and durable than diamond. Each piece of diamond armor provides two toughness points for a total of eight, while Netherite sports three points per armor piece for a grand total of 12.

There are a lot of steps to upgrade your gears to netherite tier.

To get Netherite gears, players need to find Ancient Debris, smelt Ancient Debris to get Netherite Scraps, craft Netherite Ingots, then use the Ingots to upgrade a diamond item into its netherite version.

2. Enchanted gear

The sword (ideally diamond or netherite) is used to damage the dragon on its perch as she is immune to arrows at this time.

Enchanting the sword is highly recommended. Sharpness is useful for increasing damage to both the dragon and endermen.

3. Blocks

Blocks can be useful for climbing up the towers or to pillars up in order to get a better angle to shoot the end crystals.

You should bring several stacks of blocks because mining endstone is slow, especially without a tool enchanted with Efficiency.

4. Water bucket

The way players interact with water is pretty wonky in Minecraft. As long as you touch a water surface at the end, fall damage from any height gets reduced to zero. This results in a "Water bucket trick", in which you create a water surface right before the fall to eliminate fall damage.

It can be used to put out lava that is encountered while looking for the end portal.

5. Ender Pearls

An ender pearl is an item dropped by Enderman that can be used to teleport. This ability is always useful and can let you get out of sticky situations.

Ender Pearl also has certain other benefits, such as locating strongholds and creating Eyes of Enders, which are both useful in order to get to the End and beat Minecraft.

6. Enchanted Golden Apples

Enchanted Golden Apples are the most powerful buff items in Minecraft. It gives the players some of the most useful buffs in the game: Regeneration II for 20 seconds‌, Absorption IV for 2 minutes, Resistance for 5 minutes, Fire Resistance for 5 minutes.

They can only be found in chests in desert pyramids, dungeons, woodland mansions and mineshafts. Enchanted Golden Apples are useful in PvP situations, boss fights and raids. You can also feed them to horses to increase your taming chances. Normal golden apples give a much weaker effect.

7. Infinity bow

Bows are incredibly useful for the game’s two major bosses: the Ender Dragon and the Wither. The former can fly and the latter is very dangerous up close. This is why players need an Infinity bow. This enchantment allows players to use the bow without consuming any arrows. However, a single arrow is still required to fire.

Arrows shot from an Infinity-enchanted bow cannot be retrieved if they land on the ground. This enchantment does not work with tipped arrows and spectral arrows - they are still consumed normally.

8. Potions of healing

Besides regeneration, Potions of healing are probably the best way to gain more HP at a moment's notice. These potions can restore up to 4 hearts, which can make or break a bossfight. Players can also turn them into splash potions to save time.

9. 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.

10. Bed

Beds can be extremely useful for dealing large amounts of damage to the dragon. Placing them down when the ender dragon is on the portal and blowing them up removes up to 1/5 of the ender dragon's health.

The Bed can explode in the End.
