Ruined Portals have been added to Minecraft with the release of the Nether update. In this Minecraft guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about how Ruined Portals work and fixing them.

Minecraft Ruined Portals

Ruined Portals, as evident from the name, are the ones which no longer work. There can be more than one reason for these Nether Portals to be ruined in the game. If you manage to fix them, you should be able to use them in order to teleport from Nether to Overworld and vice-versa.

Aside from this, you’ll also find plenty of loot scattered around these Ruined Portals, therefore, try to search the surroundings. As for finding the Ruined Portals in Minecraft, there’s no way of pinpointing to a specific location. Regardless of whether you’re exploring Nether or Overworld, you’re sure to come across a few Ruined Portals on your adventures.

When trying to fix a Ruined Portal, you need to ensure that you always replace if there are any non-Obsidian blocks in it. In addition to this, you’ll also need to make sure that there are no Crying Obsidian blocks in it. You can mine the Crying Obsidian in order to use it in Respawn Anchors that also play a vital role in Nether.

After managing to replace the non-Obsidian blocks in a Ruined Portal, you should be able to fix it and use it as much as you want. As mentioned earlier, Ruined Portals in the game work exactly like any other Nether Portal and can be used to travel from Nether to Overworld, etc.

This is all we’ve got in our Minecraft Ruined Portals guide that have been added to the game after the Nether update. For more help on the game, you can check out our detailed Minecraft wiki guides.
