Have you ever played a factions server and you always get raided and/or killed? Well I have the solution to this and even an improvement to what you are probably used to, just look at the information below.

The first way is the easiest and the less time consuming then the 2nd way, here it is.

Way 1:

Location: Very far coordinates, about X 5000 Z 2000, and at about 7 blocks to bedrock level.

What to do first: The first thing to do is make sure you don't bring attention to yourself on the server, at first anyways, because the more you bring attention the more likely you are going to get some enemies and they will focus on raiding you instead of others. Also make sure you have everything you need, saplings, seeds, tools, food, etc.

What to do when you settle in your base: Get as much obsidian as you can and constantly go mining, ( never mine near your base, mine very far away. ) after you are very sure about the size of your base and that is the way you want it, get as much obsidian as you can and make your walls, roof, and floors all out of obsidian.

Finishing touches: Next mine all around your base so there is 1 block thickness empty around your entire base, this next part the most crucial part in making a secure base, get as much lava buckets as you can and fill the area outside your base with lava so anyone who tries to tnt or come in, will not be able to, another thing you can also do if you have a lot of people in your faction ( invite only the people you truly trust ) you can claim around the base however long out so it will be nearly impossible to tnt it. That's it, now your ready to show everyone who you are and meet everyone who stands in your way with a " Got a problem? Lets fight about it with swords! "

Way 2: After you start a temporary base and you are well defending you can move up to way 2. This is a long and time consuming task but if done properly you will be unstoppable. ( This way is only available if the server gives access to the end and does not reset it )

Location: The End, about 5000 cords out in any direction away from the spawning End island.

What to do first: Pillar out with block of choice ( notice it will take A LOT ) and while pillaring have someone break it so others can not find where you are going and destroy your future base.

What to do when you finish the pillar: After you finish the worst part the next part is not as bad, you will need slabs, obsidian, and lava buckets, these are all for the defenses, It is proven that Endermen can not spawn on any type of slab so if you don't want these pesky mobs I'd suggest using them, the obsidian is the strongest block besides bedrock and non tntable so that's why I suggest this, The lava bucket is for anyone who tries to get in your base will burn to death and is an extra help.

What to do when settled in: There is not much to do after you built your End base except to start a tree farm, and regular farm, and everything like that as plants will be your main source of food since you'll have no animals, make sure to keep everything protected and you will be unstoppable in little time at all!

I hope this helps everyone and feel free to diamond, and comment if you have any questions, concerns, comments, opinions, or suggestions, I will look over every comment as I come on PMC everyday and I promise your questions will be answered. Please remember I am not " telling " you how to make your base, this blog is just a help to anyone that needs it. THANK YOU!!!!

To me it sounds like it'd take a while to get that much obsidian.

Le n8mo feels overly stupid for not thinking of that end base idea first.

Well written.
