The Dragon Egg, a decorative, egg-shaped block. You can only get one from each world. You obtain it after beating the Ender Dragon in the End. You cannot get another one from beating the Ender Dragon a second time, but I implore you to try! This blog will go over everything and anything that has to do with this special block. Now, let’s hop right in.
Clicking on the Dragon Egg will cause it to teleport in a random position nearby. This means that you cannot traditionally mine the block and pick it up. This is… strange to say the least. The Dragon Egg will also follow the laws of physics to an extent, falling without a block underneath it. Although they can fall on you, they cannot suffocate you, since they aren’t a full block.
Dragon Eggs serve no functional purpose and are solely decorative.
Most players want to grab the egg to put it on display, or maybe just because they don’t want others to have it. The easiest way to do this is with a piston. First, cover up the entirety of the portal to make sure the Dragon Egg doesn’t fall through. Place a piston adjacent to the egg, then activate the piston. This will cause the egg to drop as an item, which then will allow you to pick it up and bring it around as any other item.
Another simpler strategy is to let it teleport once. After that, break the block under it and quickly place a torch within that small time frame before it falls. The egg will break and become an item.
Although we don’t have much information on the Dragon Egg, I think that is how it’s supposed to be. A vague, mysterious item that serves no real purpose other than to get your mind’s gears turning. In any case, it makes a good piece for my art collection. Some people like to duplicate the egg and spread it on a server en masse, but I’m more cultured, stealing it and keeping it locked in an obsidian bunker. Whatever you choose to do with it, good luck.
