Minecraft: How to Easily Kill Monsters
In Minecraft, if you needs some parts that drop from monsters, like Arrows, Bones, and Feathers, but you’ve having trouble killing very many, then my little trap method might help you. Note that this works on monsters that catch fire in the sun, so don’t try it on Creepers.
First, find flat area where you can easily see for a fair distance, without many obstructions like giant holes in the ground, etc. Also, make sure this area will be well lit when the sun comes up, so don’t do this under archways or next to large mountains.
Dig up a bunch of sand and smelt it into glass using your furnace. You’ll need about a full stack to do it properly.
With your stack of glass, build a house out of it on your flat surface you picked out about 6×6 cubes wide, and 3 cubes tall. Don’t forget to leave room for a door. I also built a small stair case so I could get out quickly in an emergency.
Now dig a moat around your house two cubes deep. Leave a cube on each side of your door untouched so you don’t fall in.
This is what your house should look like when you’re finished. Notice the sheep stuck in the moat because there’s no way out.
Once it starts to get dark, run to your glass house and shut the door, and wait until you see a few monsters spawn outside. Open the door, taunt them a bit to get them to chase you, and then run back into your house and shut the door. They’ll fall into the moat around your house and they won’t be able to escape. Keep doing this until you have all nearby monsters trapped in your moat.
Now, the best part is to simply wait until the sun comes up and watch all of them burn to death, then collect all of their loot.
