Before thinking about an overpriced respawn decice for the end i would like to see some content.
What i mean is this:
Who want's to live there?
What is this place at all?
It looks like a floating desert to me.
With corals. And the so called end cities are just one building.
But worst of all is the sky texture...
Unlike Nether, the End somehow never spoke to me.
Its character is not very worthy colonization, despite great ease of setting up means of transport.
Means of respawning there is a last thing that is worthy a single ingot of netherite.
Adding more stuff for the sake of adding stuff without proper balance or anything really unique is a bad idea.
Considering how easy it is to build bridges in the End, respawning there is not anything of urgent demand, especially considering how little resources it provide - chorus fruit farmable everywhere and content of End Cities.
Compare and contrast with Nether, which is enterable without paving your way to the stronghold, exitable without beating a boss, can have a portal buuilt literally anywhere, has more forgiving lava instead of void, serves as fast transport method, and has a ton of resources unfarmable and/or barely accessible and/or not accessible elsewhere, like quartz, netherite, prodigious quantities of lava, Piglins to trade with, soul sand (useful in water elevators), blaze rods, nonflammable wood, farmable gold supply and essential stuff you need to get the beacon.
Please see #10 , I said this can be applied to future End updates.
