Portals were introduced to minecraft in the Halloween Update. These fantastic devices serve the purpose of transporting players to and from The Nether. Portals are comprised of two separate types of blocks; Obsidian and Portal(not actually a block that can be broken or placed)
- Creating an upright 4x5 frame of obsidian(leaving a 2x3 hole in the center) and lighting the hole on fire with a Flint and Steel
- The 4x5 frame will have you use 14 blocks of obsidian, but it is possible to make the frame with only 10 blocks of obsidian by not making corners to the frame.
