Accessing The Aether For The First Time

An Aether Portal is a special structure that allows a player to go to the Aether by walking through the blue swirls. Aether Portals are made by creating a 5x4 frame out of Glowstone blocks and then pouring a bucket of water inside the frame. This activates the portal and creates the blue swirls.

Aether Portals are designed to look like the opposite of Nether Portals. Instead of the dark Obsidian block, the frame of an Aether portal is built using bright Glowstone. To activate the portal the player must use a Bucket of Water at the bottom of the portal frame, the same way one would use Flint and Steel to activate a Nether portal.

It is required to make a Nether portal before making an Aether portal because Glowstone is required to make the portal. Therefore, it is recommended to search for water, lava, and diamond if one intends to go to the Aether. You can go into Creative mode and get the Aether portal block.

As of newer versions, Aether Portals can be made before a player enters the Nether as Glowstone can be found easily by hunting Witches at night, or by trading with Villagers. This method isn't very effective, as that Witches are very strong and have a rare (not really rare) chance of dropping Glowstone DUST. You need four Glowstone dust to make one Glowstone block. Trading with Villagers is effective, but you need several emeralds to get enough Glowstone to build a portal. You need ten Glowstone blocks to build a portal without edges. You need fourteen Glowstone blocks to build a full Aether portal.

Known bugsEdit

  • As of 24 July - 2011 in v1.01, a portal can spawn in a dungeon. An example can be viewed here:


  • Aether Portals will spawn whenever a player falls out of the Aether too far away from a existing portal. Since the player would die from the fall damage the portal that is spawned from that is most of help.
  • One Aether block is six overworld blocks.
