At what depth do you find those chests? Is it around gold?

their placement, from my experience, is completely random. They're always underground, but i've found one as high up as the dirt layer. Just keep lookin!

Don't look at bedrock. Look more middle-bottom.

:sisi: I seem to have fair success mining straight down until I hit plate rock, then moving over.

I too cannot find a single portal peice.. I will try these methods! How rare are the chests? I've been mining long enough to have a load of gold+silver+iron but have yet to see one.

Make sure you're in an adventure world.
No portal pieces spawn in regular or creative worlds.

I've found two so,far. I tend to follow caverns sideways and down. There's no special placement of the portal pieces. How do you assemble them? Anyone found the pattern?

In the tutorial? Really. I coulda swore I looked...twice. Sigh. Ok, here I go again <diving plunge head first into JJX>

UPDATE:
RTFM right?

You were correct and I thank you for that. You see, Im not very bright and I was rather in a hurry to dig n shit. I never noticed the turn page button at the bottom of the first tutorial page. I kept thinking it was light on information and just assumed they would add to it at an update. That's what I get for making dumb assumptions.

I would have struggled forever had it not been for your advice. Make a JJ cupcake and reward yourself. jack will thank you (unless you spill a lava bucket. He doesn't like that. At all.)

There found randomly in tunnels that are rendered what I do I grab torches and randomly tap in the dark areas to find caves!
