End rods are decorative light sources that emit white particles.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

End rods can be obtained by any tool or block. They will also break if run over by flowing water.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Ingredients Crafting recipe
Blaze Rod +
Popped Chorus Fruit


Natural generation[edit | edit source]

End rods generate naturally all over end cities. They may spawn upright on the outside of towers, and they may spawn sideways inside of towers.

Usage[edit | edit source]

End rods in various positions on purpur blocks.

End rods are primarily used as light sources and decoration. They can be placed on any surface of any block, including other End rods. They will not break if their supporting block is broken. Gravity-affected blocks like sand or gravel will not break if they fall onto an End rod oriented vertically, but will break on a rod oriented horizontally. End rods can be pushed and pulled by pistons, no matter the orientation.

Inside some end city towers, they are positioned so the player may use them to climb the tower, similar to a spiral staircase.

Light[edit | edit source]

End rods emit a light level of 14 (same as torches), and will melt snow layers and ice within a 2-block radius.
