    Out of the Water

I was pulling down my old malformed nether gate that was right in front of my new shiny one.  I ended up backing into the portal and getting zapped to the underworld - no biggie I thought, just jump back through the portal and alls well that ends well...unfortunatly there was a ghast who had been waiting all week at the gate just itching for someone to stumble through. So I poke my head through that purple curtain and BAM - fireball to the face.  Whip out the old bow and arrows to dispatch the ghast then turn around to see...!!! His fireball aparently extinguished the gate...and i have no flint.  So is this the point at which I hop in the lava and loose all my diamond gear or is there a better way to get out of this jam? somebody help me!!!

Kill yourself. Your items won't disappear from unloaded chunks so you can just go back in and get them whenever you want.

You have two options here:

1: Kill youself
2: Get a ghast to shoot a fireball into the portal to reignite it.

You can get a Ghast to shoot the portal again, but it's very tricky.

Make a chest to store your stuff in if you can.  If not, then just pillar up a good distance and use falling damage to kill yourself in an area where you can recover your stuff.

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.
Stupid 3D..

Am I missing something pretty simple here?

Nether = Gravel?

Gravel = Flint

The Nether has gravel naturally, just go find some?

That's not true.  First mistake: Not building a cobble base right around your portal.  

I think you can use lava to reignite it... but only if you have a fuse like wool or wood will it work effectively.

After all, when you mix these three, you get a cannon builder.

actually, i don't think it has flint, as to the problem with the ghast igniting it. An easier way is to use 3rd person view and position camera behind portal.ghasts fire at camera, not player.

Yes, but does he have iron?

Well, I really learned something neat from that post. He said he needed flint, so I am one to assume he needed flint.

1. Kill yourself
2. get a ghast to hit the portal

I know someone already said those, but when you get back to the nether, bringing flint with you this time, build a stone shelter around the portal. I don't know about anyone else, but on my world ghast shots don't destroy stone.

Just a suggestion

1. If you have iron, the nether has gravel for flint.
2. If you have enough wood for a chest, make one and die.
3. If you have something that could be used as a fuse, make one leading to the portal.
4. If there is a ghast nearby, get it to shoot into the portal.
5. If worst comes to worst, just kill yourself in a fairly safe area then go back and get your stuff

ghast --> fireball --> broken portal --> live a long and happy life with your diamond armour, although diamond armor is stupid (waste of diamonds)   :P

i have no way to help this.... if i could i would, but just stay alive alright make the last uses count in the diamond tools and armor, kill all enemies that you can and make a makeshift base for next time. not good idea though cuz if you are a good aim and have good timing you could just hit a fireball into the portal.
