  2. Aside from your mouse, keyboard strafe keys can control your tamed dragon as well. You can jump when you press the spacebar, and you can control the height of your direction using the left shift key.
  3. For easier control, you can use a combination of the two. Your mouse can control horizontal movement, while vertical controls can be taken care of by the spacebar and left shift key.

The Ender Dragon is considered as a final boss in Minecraft. Hence, expect to find this dragon at the End Portal. But going here is not as straightforward as you think.

To find the Ender Dragon, you need to follow a series of steps. In the overworld map, find a Stronghold. You need to use the Eye of Ender to find these underground locations. If you use the Eye of Ender, it will guide you to know the site of Stronghold and will pinpoint the correct location on where you will dig.

Essentially, the Stronghold is like giant mazes of big stones. So, when you dig around, the Stone Bricks are your clues. After successfully getting in the Stronghold, look around and go to the room with the End Portal. Again, this will take quite some time, but it will be worth it.

In going to the End Portal Room, mark paths with torches so that you do not get lost. The End Portal room will ask you to fill in 12 Eyes of Enders. This will activate the portal. Head into the portal to arrive at The End, and you will see the Ender Dragon.

The ender dragon will immediately spawn after you jump into The End portal. If you have missed your chance to slay or tame the Ender Dragon during your first attempt, you can re-summon the dragon by using four end-crystals on the exit portal. Eventually, the Ender Dragon will spawn there again.
