What is the use of Eye of Ender?


The Eye of Ender is used for locating strongholds and activating end portals. When players ‘use’ the Eye of Ender it flies up into the air and moves in the direction of the nearest stronghold. Once you have located an End portal, you will need to place Eyes of Enders in the slots around the portal to activate it.


An End portal requires a total of 12 Eye of Enders to activate it and each frame-block has a 10% chance of having an Eye of Ender already placed inside. The Eye of Ender is also required to craft an End crystal and an Ender chest.

Conclusion


The Eye of Ender is an important item for the completion of the game as the End portal cannot be activated without it. Since they cannot be found naturally as item spawns or drop, they can be crafted by using an ender pearl and some blaze powder.
