    I will show you the best tips on how to chorus farm in the end, and how I make 50k/hr end farming!
    Step 1 - Perms: Before you start, make sure to get End Perms, for 20k. I recommend upgrading to voidwalker for an extra 25k. Voidwalker gets you an unlimited /near amount, so you can be aware of who's close to you at all times!

    Step 2 - Gear Up: PVP is enabled in the End, so be prepared to fight! Here is what you should bring when you go into the end:

    -Full Diamond Armor
    -Diamond Sword/Axe
    -Several Stacks of Stone
    -One Stack of Wood Logs
    -Two Stacks of Endstone
    -Three Stacks of Dirt
    -Two Stacks of Food
    -Diamond Pickaxe, Shovel, and Axe
    -64 Chorus Flowers

    Chorus Flowers can only be found in the End, but it's very rare to find them because people have already taken them. You can buy them from Station36 so you can start your farm.


    Step 3 - Making a Base: This is the hardest step, because your base needs to be hidden. Bring a LOT of materials with you! Here are the steps to create your end base:

    1. Run away from spawn and go far away, remembering your trail
    2. Make a bridge off an end platform, and destroy the bridge as you go, so no one can follow you. Make sure to write down the coordinates of where you bridge off, so you don't lose your base!
    3. Once you feel like you have bridged far away, build a pillar up. You can put ladders on it so you can easily climb up. Make sure to do /near every once in a while to see if anyone is nearby!
    4. After building your pillar up really high, make a platform for your farm. Make sure you aren't 20 blocks or closer to max world height, because you need to let your plants grow tall.

    Step 4 - Harvesting: Once your chorus fruit has fully grown, you are ready to harvest it and sell it. First, you need to get on top of the plants, and break the dead flowers (Dead flowers have a gold dot in the middle).
    The best way to collect flowers is to parkour from plant to plant, and break them with a diamond axe.
    Once you have enough flowers to replant, you can break the bottom of the plant. Breaking the bottom of the plant harvests the entire thing, and the fruit will drop. You can collect all the fruit and do /sell hand.

    How much will you make?
    Each chorus fruit sells for $7 each. Some plants can drop up to 20 chorus fruit, but the average is about 10. That's $100/plant! Some farms, including mine, have over 250 plants growing at once. It takes about 30min to complete a full harvest, and one harvest would make $25,000. That's $50,000/hour!
    The size of your farm is very important. Make sure it is big enough so each harvest makes a lot of money, but not too big. The bigger the farm, the longer it takes to collect enough flowers for a harvest.

    Extra Tips:
    1. You will have to travel back and forth to your base, because you will need a lot of materials to start your farm. Make sure you bring as many items as you can when going to your base, to be more time efficient.
    2. Some players might try to follow you off spawn so they can kill you, or find out where your base is. Be very careful when leaving spawn, doing /near to check if people are nearby.
    3. You can pay a player to leave you alone in the end, if you want to be on the safe side.

    Feel free to comment some helpful tips and I'll add them on the list!

    No it does not, as it breaks upwards. Fortune may work for the first block that you break, but overall gain from fortune is minimal. If you want to go and break every block with fortune... Dont do that. Waste of time.

    Correction - vice versa. 20k for Voyager, another 25k for VoidWalker.

    I wouldn't bring enchanted tools into the end because they are not needed and you can lose them, but they are helpful if you have /echest or backpack to keep them safe.

    Elytra prices spiked. :/ I was going to buy one at ~50K after the reset, but a week before the reset they are worth 80K, and the day of the reset (like 6 hours after) they are worth 250K. :/

    It is just a rating for you post saying that you are optimistic.
    The other ratings for posts are: "Like", "Agree", "Winner", "Informative", "Friendly", "Useful", "Creative", and "Potato".
    Most are self-explanatory. Potato is just a random one. I use it to give to other people when it doesn't really fit into one of the others, or if it is funny.

    I bought mine a few days before the reset for 200k. Prices are always high after a reset, but then they go down the week after. The prices are always the highest right before the reset, because there's little supply and everyone wants to get their hands on one.
