Endermen are very difficult to kill I've found even with a diamond enchanted sword. So to save the levels and swords, I've resorted to using creepers. Get an Enderman inbetween you and a creeper (keep cursor on the ground to avoid the Enderman attacking you) and have the creeper blow up. I've found it takes 2-4 creepers to kill an Enderman depending on how close you get them to explode. And since its the environment that is technically attacking, the Enderman will no react.
Good luck. I've killed 7 Enderman this way successfully and gotten 5 pearls. TNT also works really well too.
always look at the feet when attacking this helps prevent the enderman from teleporting away from you as often and when they teleport out of sight count on it to pop up behind you use armour as well as a high level enchanted iron/ diamond sword (lvl 30) Ive killed too many to count this way also between each attack on an enderman i give myself time to fully regenerate my health bar before attacking another which prevents frequent deaths and chances of losing your posessions for other players to pick up or to despawn before you are able to retreive them
You want to kill endermen super fast? i mean kill hundreds and never get hit once? go to the end go make a little roof over your head that is 3x3 then make it 2 blocks high then when look at them they will be within sword range and they cant attack you as long as you stay in the middle i do this sometimes in PC servers then i get banned :c
i figured out today when i was playing that if you hit an enderman with a sword that has the fire/flame effect it will catch fire and zip away quickly but i cant ever find the enderman again afterward, does it die or teleport to the end? also i created an iron golem and i will hit an enderman near by then run towards the golem and the golem will attack and kill the enderman. The iron golem will also attack anything that goes near it except for creepers which i cant figure that out either
Golems attack all the agro mobs but creepers like dogs i think they also attack agro wolves but not wolves if they are just wild. Keep in mind if endermen take damage from a souce that will give continuous damage i.e cactus, water, lava. best place to fight endermen is desert its flat so they cant hid and it doesnt rain in the desert so they will always spawn ther.
oh ok ive got a mostly desert map with a few villages and plenty of hills too as well as a few small forest areas so dancing around the cacti help when being chased lol thank you for explaining that to me Jav4534
LOL ^^^^ its mostly me talking so if you wish to delete this thread it wont bother me any and once again i apologize that i talk way too much but i really dont have any friends so it gets kinda weird just talking to myself
oh and i reset my nether so after a closer look at the spawners that i destroyed and found that i did indeed destroy the blaze spawners now im just left with the question: When you throw an eye of ender and it floats to a spot then drops is that where the stronghold is or in the general area
