Ender Pearl Sprite
Ender Pearls are mob drops obtained by defeating an Enderman. When an Enderman is killed, it has a chance to drop an Ender Pearl, but it sometimes will not. Ender Pearls are able to be thrown, and will teleport the player to wherever they land. Ender Pearls can therefore be used to get to hard-to-reach areas and give quick transportation. One side effect, however, is the player will take damage as if he or she had crashed into the landing area. Some PvP servers will make Ender Pearls grenades, and will explode when they hit something. This is not a part of plain vanilla Minecraft. One Ender Pearl and one Blaze Powder is needed to craft an Eye of Ender. The crafted Eye of Ender is used to locate Strongholds and activate End Portals. Ender Pearls and Blaze Powder are needed to reach The End under certain circumstances. Either the player will craft the Eye of Ender or will trade for them with NPC Villagers. If the player has Protection and Feather Falling enchanted armor, the player will take none to very few damage when teleporting, which makes transportation very quickly.
