Minecraft Tip #38 (332/365)

Here’s a quick tip for y’all.

When you’re fighting large hoards of mobs, it may seem that the odds aren’t exactly in your favor. Well, a good sword and some armor will help quite a bit, but there’s one other thing you can do.


When you are fighting the crowd, get them into one huge pile. There are two benefits to doing this.

1) It’s just easier to fight mobs this way because you can hold off the line of mobs by just spam clicking. Click like there is no tomorrow, because there might not be one if you don’t.

2) If there are Skeletons or Witches in the group, then they can end up shooting arrows/potions at other mobs. This will damage the mob and may change its opinion on whether or not to attack you.

If the attacked mob is a zombie, then it will just stand there like an idiot, not knowing what to do. If it’s a spider, skeleton, or a witch (I assume) then it will actually attack the mob that just damaged it. The two mobs will fight it out until one is left standing, at which point the surviving mob will focus on your once again.

Still, it’s a very helpful strategy. One which is extremely helpful in the map that we are going to show you tomorrow.

Thanks for reading and Happy Mining!
