In heavily modded minecraft, there tend to be many mobs around, and mob caps can also be set relatively low to prevent lagging. This can cause the mobs that you want to spawn to not!
So where to get ender pearls, which are sorely needed for some recipes, not to mention finding an feeding an end portal?
There are a few ways, mostly just vanilla minecraft methods.
- Level up a cleric villager. Sometimes they sell ender pearls.
- Drop gold ingots to Piglins. They’ll throw stuff back at you, ender pearls are in their drop list.
Some moddy ways:
Check to see if you’ve collected ender fragments (dropped by endermen) or young pearls (dropped by enderminis)
Travel to the Nether. Endermen spawn more in some biomes. I think this is something a mod has added into the nether world, which is to bring endermen in like they are in the End.
