Is there a specific level range where strongholds can be found?

  • Is there a specific level range where strongholds can be found? LOL. NO.

    I'm still a newbie with Minecraft and I have the Xbox 360 version, if that matters.

    Anyway, I've been wondering if there's a level range in which strongholds can be found. I know that they don't (or it's really rare?) spawn at the ground-level and that sometimes they're found near/in mineshafts, but...that's all I know.

    (Aside from all of this, I'm still trying to get more Ender Pearls to craft Eyes of Ender so I can locate the portal/stronghold in one of my worlds, and this question just came up out of curiosity.)

  • No, there is no level range that strongholds must spawn at. If you take a look at the page on Minecraft Wiki, you can see that strongholds can spawn on any level in the world except for partially or fully above ground. In other words, they must always be below ground, but apart from that their is no limit.

  • So I was goofing around in creative mode just because my survival game was a little too intense and I wanted to play without the fear of dying. After a while, building got boring, and then I decided to go and find an End Portal. I've never found one before, but I looked at different tips and got an Ender Eye. I sent a few up from a triangular position. I dug down and found a stronghold. All excited, I decided to go searching. I literally explored every pathway and found absolutely nothing. Despite my many Eyes of Ender, I couldn't find the Portal! What am I doing wrong? I dug down to where

  • Possible Duplicate: How can I find my World's Strongholds? Is there any reliable tool for determining the locations of Fortresses and Nether fortresses in Minecraft? We migrated our server to the latest version of Bukkit. Since we have quite a bit of the map already revealed, I'm not sure whether we still have a chance of finding a fortress in the overworld. So instead of running around the map, I'd like to use a tool to find their locations and then check whether those chunks were already generated. Similarly, is there such a tool for Nether fortresses? (Even this isn't

  • I have traveled to the Ender "End" and beat the Ender Dragon at least 2 times. I have begun to notice that after killing the Ender Dragon, an egg appears near the Portal back to the Overworld. I guess it is the Ender Dragon egg, but when i hit it, the egg just "teleports" somewhere else. How do i get it to go to the overworld. When i am in creative mode, I looked in the spawn egg section and find no Ender Dragon spawn egg. So what do i do to spawn the ender dragon in the overworld? And do i surround the ender dragon egg with tnt to destroy it? Help please

  • I'd like to know any hints, tips, or pretty much anything on how to find strongholds. I already know that they're frequently found under swamps, and that you can find them with an Eye of Ender, but there has to be an easier way than that right?
