Source[edit | edit source]
After killing the Ender Dragon in the End, an End Gateway will appear. Throwing an ender pearl into it will take players to the "Outer End." End Cities can be found in this area, with end rods inside, which serve as lighting and steps up towers. Like torches, end rods will break if water runs over it, and they will also melt snow and ice. However, unlike torches, it is not possible to walk through them.

Uses[edit | edit source]
End rods are mainly used for decoration and lighting purposes.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- If placed on a mob's head using commands, the end rod will rotate, resembling somewhat the horn of a unicorn.
- End rods can be placed on the side of blocks, which makes them stick out sideways.
- The end rod can also float in the air if the block below it is mined.
- The bottom of the new texture of the rod is a gray colour, resembling stone to a greater extent than it does popped chorus fruit.
