End Portal Frame is a block found in Strongholds which are arranged in a 12 block ring pattern over a pool of Lava. Some of the frame blocks will already have an Eye of Ender inserted into it, with others empty. The object is that once each of the 12 End Portal Frame blocks contain an Eye of Ender, the portal will suddenly open and engage. Eyes of Ender can be obtained by crafting them from Ender Pearls and Blaze Powder. Entering The End is a one way trip and a player can only return to The Nether or the Overworld via death in The End or by defeating an Ender Dragon.

The End Portal Frame is what the end portal is made of.

Eyes of Ender are needed to activate the portal, a total of 12 Eyes of Ender are needed.
