How to Use Elytra in Minecraft-Step-By-Step Guide

Matthew Mann

oving throughout your Minecraft world may seem slow and sometimes painful. Thankfully, the creators of Minecraft included an item that makes travel a little easier. Elytra allows the user to glide from spot to spot depending on the elevation change. Using the Riptide enchanted trident can aid in elevation gain, making your travel that much easier. It is important to note that elytra only enables gliding (even with the trident) and not a full flight.


Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: Aquire elytra. In order to actually find and take elytra in your world, first, you must travel to End City in the End Biome. Go inside the End boat. You will find it hanging on the wall in between 2 chests. Left-click on the item frame and pick it up before it disappears. It will then be added to your inventory.


Step 2: Open inventory. Open your inventory like normally and navigate your cursor towards the elytra.


Step 3: Drag to a useable slot. Click on the elytra and drag it to your chest armor slot. Your character should now appear to have a cape behind it. The elytra are now useable.


Step 3: Use elytra. Find a higher elevation spot (usually a mountain) that allows you to see your desired destination. Run and jump off of the edge and activate your elytra (make sure to run off the cliff, as not enough speed will cause you to tumble down and most likely die). This is done by hitting your action key (SPACE BAR on PC). While in the air gliding, you can steer your character like normal. Ensure that you do not hit any object or landmass on your way down from gliding as this will hurt you.
