This page describes content that is a part of the Flames of the Nether DLC. 

The Nether Fortress is a secret location in the Flames of the Nether DLC of Minecraft Dungeons. It is obtained through finding the map in the Basalt Deltas.


In the center of the main area, there stands a statue of the Wildfire, an unused mob for the DLC, and one of the choices in the 2017 Mob Vote, which lost to the Phantom.


RIVER OF FIRE – The Nether is a place of scarce resources, but one thing is abundant: lava. All those who want to survive must find a way around its scalding surface. Finding a safe path to reach your goal is not for the faint of heart or those afraid of a little hard work.

In-game story


The Nether Fortress before you is protected not just by walls and fortifications, but by an endless supply of deadly lava. Your only hope is to find a safe path that leaves you unscorched and ready to face the challenges within.
