The Ender Watcher is a block added by Quark. While a player is looking directly at it, it will emit a Redstone signal from all sides. The closer to the center of the block the player look at is, the stronger redstone signal is. It does not matter the distance the player is from the block, as long as the chunk the Ender Watcher resides in is loaded. The Ender Watcher is disabled if the mod Botania is installed, as the Ender Overseer can be crafted instead.
The recipe below was used in versions prior to 1.18, unless Ender Biotite was disabled.
