Super efficient Endermen Farm 1.8.8 – Kill them with TNT!

December 3, 2019

Hello hello!
Welcome! Today I am going to show you my new endermen
farm concept. It’s an almost totally new design by me.
The only thing that I have borrowed is the concept with an endermite shown by the zipkrowd
people and docm77 And of course its just a regular enderman
farm, so it’s in The End and so on, but the other concepts aren’t that borrowed.
However that its with an endermite makes it totally pistonless which makes it totally
super cheap to make. And it goes super fast as well.
The unique parts that I have designed, – lets go in to F1 here, – is that it’s a square
instead of a line, as you usually see on the endermen farms.
They usually end up in a line just like that so that you have to walk back and forth to
hit them. You can of course walk around and hit them like this [in this farm], but there
is another part to my design that is new, and that is that I have two floors. And on
this bottom floor I can put in some TNT and ignite without any need for pistons or anything.
I have seen farms ignited by TNT before but they use the piston designs. So this is the
only design without pistons that I have found that you can ignite with TNT, which makes
it super efficient. So that also makes it so that you can get a really high efficiency.
You can ignite like several times in a row. You can just do like this. Of course they
will spawn when you ignite the TNT so they won’t spawn at once, but they will start dropping
down pretty fast again. And before you have the XP you will be able to ignite a new one.
So you can just go in and do like that and then before you even get the XP you have a
new TNT going off. So, here below I have a lot of chests and
so on. But lets go up on the roof and have a look at the farm. So, this is how the farm looks from above.
You can see that the endermen spawn pretty fast and they run down in the middle there.
What I will do instead of making a tutorial for this is that I will show it off, and I
will leave the link in the description below for a world download. So that you can download
the world and look at it yourself. I think that that’s much easier for you and
easier for me, because it’s hard to build something this big, and show every little
detail. But some things needs to be shown. So, here we have the upper part. And I have
made a square like this with trap doors on all sides. In the way that docm77 did it in
his video was to put it on a line. The difference is that this will be more efficient,
since they will fall down faster. They don’t have to go into those holes on the side. Also
I want to have a square because I want to be able to ignite them with TNT down there.
The way that I have solved the middle part is that I put carpets around like this. And
I have capped it off with some half slabs like this.
Anyway so I thought that I would show you how to get the endermite in.
You will need to do this in survival if you want to get the endermite. So, the first thing
you do is that you build a platform like this and then you fill up the edges around just
like this so that you have two high with some kind of block. It doesn’t matter what kind
of block it is. And then you fill up this hole here, just above. You need to have it
free all the way down to where you want the endermite to be in the center. But you fill
it up with something and then you put down rails like that.
What you need to do after that is to go in to gamemode 0 or survival. So let me do that.
Now I am in survival and here you want to have at least some food because you will take
a lot of damage. You can do it a lot slower, but all you need to do is to teleport yourself
like this or something. Just so that you do it until you get an endermite.
So, here we have an endermite. And we just put it in to that cart there, and then we
can name it. Oh wait, we need to be able to name this first.
So lets name him fluffy and there we go. Oh, we cant name it like this. So I guess
that I will have to take it out, and then name it. And then I put it in the minecart.
Then I can do whatever I want. Now it’s safe there. Just make sure that you don’t get endermen
hunting it. You want to take this out and then these two out so that you don’t have
anything there. Then you can start to just push it in there. And it will go down in the
right posissition right in the middle. Let me go to gamemode 1 again.
So, what you need to do after that is just to clear this up around here, and cap it off
on the top like that. That is important just so that nothing can
spawn or teleport in there. But as you could see, the endermen just ran
in at once. So lets go down and see how that works.
As you can see, we have endermen just falling down.
Let me go to gamemode 0 again, just so that I can show you.
Now I have level 3. I have put a lot of TNT here in a chest and
should have some flint and steel as well. So the way you do it is that you just go in
and ignite the TNT. Then stand back a bit just to be sure and then you can gather as
much XP as you want. It will gather up pretty fast and the endermen will start flowing down.
They will start falling down here again. So by the time you have collected all the XP,
you can – Yeah it will take a while – and then you can just go down and you can ignite
another one. The process repeats, so you will get like super much XP from this by just igniting
TNT. Just like this. If you don’t want to use the TNT, that doesn’t
make the farm useless, you can just as easily kill them like this, and they will fall down
in the same rate as you kill them, basically. So that you will never run out. They will
just keep coming. But I think that the easiest way is just to go down and ignite everything
like this. Then you get a lot of XP. So as you can see I am soon at level 30. And
I mean I just started the farm up there as you could see. So its pretty fast and I think
that it’s good enough. Its hard to grab the XP, thats how fast it is.
Let’s just do this one more time, just to see.
So, TNT, ignite. Here I put some chests around like this and
an enderchest as well. Now you cant see again.
Anyway, the hoppers under here are all the way in, except for in the middle. So under
both these I have these hoppers and they are connected under here. They are connected out
here and here I have put down furnaces above, just so that they wont lag the server as much.
But they spread around like that. Let me take gamemode 1.
And on the backside you can see that they just point in to the chests like that so that
you will get all the ender pearls from when you kill stuff.
I have also put this water around everything just so that I wont get anything teleporting
out. Here you could put some rail or something
leading back to spawn or to your place. Also if we go up here we can see how I have
built this part. In the middle here, I have built just pillars
up like this. It is very easy to build, just four pillars. And then on every third step
I have put a halfslab just so that it’s 2½ in between. So that nothing can go there. As you can see on the sides 2½ in between
just to keep them in place. They are 3 high so they can’t get in here in between. And
then they fall down all the way down here and get in to this area.
Here in the middle I have just put water up here.
Maybe I should just cap off a bit more here. And then I have put them a bit closer so that
they won’t bug in to the wall or anything like that. Ok. So I guess that that’s it. This is how
the farm looks from the outside. It’s covered in water just so that the endermen won’t teleport
out. So if you liked this video, feel free to share
it with your friends. It helps a lot when more people see it. It is a lot more fun to
do videos if a lot of people see it. Also if you want to see more videos like this,
feel free to subscribe. I also have a let’s play series. And I don’t know if it will be
out yet when you see this, but probably I will have one episode in the let’s play series
where I have built this farm in that world. So please be sure to check that out and feel
free to leave comments in the comment section below, a like or whatever you want. But Its
fun when people interact. So if you disliked something, just tell me
about it. If you liked something, feel free to say that too.
Yeah, I guess that that is it. See you next time. Bye bye.

    This is what I hate the most in people who kill ender man and I'm against it and its pretty racist picking on the black mobs

    @Cyoor Endermen can teleport through water, but with no place to teleport to, they are secure inside the drop zone.
