Nether Portal Requirements...

#1BluesSoul617Posted 7/24/2012 2:13:54 PM
So I'm a week new to the game and I'm wondering how to create a Nether Portal. I have 10 Obsidian blocks and some flint but it also says you need steel (does that exist in the game?). How exactly do you do this? I've tried archive topics, google and youtube and nothing. I see that they already have the combined flint and steel? I dunno.

You need "Flint & Steel" to light the Nether Portal. "Steel" is actually misleading, because you need one Flint and one Iron Ingot, which you combine in the Crafting menus, into "Flint & Steel".

Also, this is all you'll ever want to know about Nether Portals:

Flint and steel is one piece of flint and one piece of iron.

Also the nether portal can have the corners made out of dirt then removed so you can save four pieces of obsidian.

Hopefully you find the other information useful though.

Ah. Gotcha. I already looked up the wiki. It seems like it just talks about the Nether rather than how to specifically make the portal.

Yep I'm aware of that. I just didn't know how to open the portal.

Let's see if I get it to work. Thanks for your help guys.

There's a brief explanation for portals in the How to Play menu.
