Ok, so I fired up my end portal. Went in. After the battle with the dragon, the portal formed at the center egg thing. I noticed the egg on the top of the post, so, I did what I thought I should do...build a platform around it so it wouldn't fall through the portal. Then I hit it with my pickaxe. It just bounces around. I have hit it repeatedly and nothing. I even tried a pickaxe with silk touch.
What is the egg for?
Can you actually ever get it?
How do you reset the end or at least spawn another dragon? Survival only.
