Minecraft's Ender Dragon will be getting a makeover for 1.9

Minecraft Ender Dragon changes

The PC version of Minecraft might have an edge over its console cousins thanks to mods and the cadence of updates, but the Ender Dragon, Minecraft’s flying dragon boss beastie, is a wee bit more evolved on consoles. With 1.9, though, the disparity between these deadly monsters will end. 

Mojang developer Nathan Adams confirmed that he’s redoing the Ender Dragon boss battle for 1.9, bringing it closer to the console version, mechanically. He ominously notes that he’ll be taking it one step further, as well, but he’s keeping what that involves a secret for the time being. 

If you’ve already put an end to the Ender Dragon in your world (well done) then don’t fret, Adams says that you’ll be able to fight the new version of the Ender Dragon without resetting your precious world. 

Adams also teased that better things would be coming with the 1.9 update, but more reveals are being saved for later.

I don't know if to cry or laugh when I read this. The ender dragon... There are so many mods out there that really put minecraft to shame. Just throwing out a name out of thin air - Thaumcraft. Just an example. That is actual content. Some of these mod developers really blows my mind. They've brought life to an otherwise somewhat bland/sandbox experience. I've played minecraft since beta days. If it weren't for mods I probably wouldn't even be playing it these days. If you haven't played with mods in minecraft you're really missing out on a lot of *quality* content. These days you can download one of those modpacks with a launcher that installs everything for you in case you don't know how to install mods. All you do is pick a pack you want to play and play it. It couldn't be easier.

I think they have been doing a good job with providing updates and content to the game honestly. I do agree though there are TONS of mods that make the game alot of fun. I play other mods that have tons of crafting and new mechanics, but that's the reason minecraft is so great others can create additional ad dons to extend the game play. I have not played this game in quite some time but will jump back into it to get a glimpse of all the changes.
