→ Why do only endermen spawn? And why so many?
The farm was built in the End. A strange place were only endermen can spawn.
It was built 200 blocks away from the main island and I placed water on every free spot outside the farm. The only spawn areas are inside the farm. That's why they spawning in a huge amount.
→ The video is fast forwarded!
Yes, it is. But the timer, too. How do you think the counter can count up to almost 5 minutes in less than 2 minutes?
It takes less than 5 minutes to reach level 50. If you still don't belive me you can use the world download and try it on your own.
→ Do you use instant kill?
No. They drop down 43 blocks (after the vine break). The fall damage removes 19,5 hearts. Since endermen have 20 hearts there is only half a heart left. That's why they are one hit kills.
→ The wool blocks are missing because endermen can take blocks.
No. That was my fault. Since 1.1 endermen can only take the following blocks: Grass Block, Dirt, Mycelium, Sand, Gravel, Clay, Dandelion, Rose, Brown Mushroom, Red Mushroom, Cactus, Pumpkin, Melon, TNT
→ Isn't that EthoLab/Docm77's design?
No. Docm77 made a tutorial for the farm. But he gave me credits and linked my channel in the description of his video.
EthosLab did a different design in his LP.
→ It's too huge to build it in survival.
Well, it's quit some work. But not impossible.
We built it on JL2579's Server. Docm77 built it in his World Tour. And Nebris88 built it on the Mindcrack Server.
All three are legit, vanilla minecraft players.
→ Why don't you use splash potions?
Potions wouldn't damage endermen. Neither instant damage, nor instant health.
→ Why do the endermen not teleport away?
Because they can't find a spot to teleport to. Around the farm I placed water on every free spot.
