Hello and welcome to this exclusive blog post. Today I am posting something really special actually. These are proven facts in minecraft which I am sharing with you. You might know them all or you might even know a few of them. Either way this could maybe be some interesting facts for you to learn. Take a look and if you want tell me how many you knew:

(X)= Few people know this


(Y)= The average fan base know this


(Z)= I guess you already know this.


Chicken facts:


1) (X)Thrown eggs have a 1 in 8 chance of hatching a chick and a 1 in 256 chance of hatching 4 chicks at the same time


2) (Y)Chickens will follow the player if they are holding seeds. In addition to this, they will enter love mode if the player feeds them seeds


Ocelot fact:


3)(Y)Tamed cats may act wild if they have gone two days without following or being fed by players.


Villager fact:


4) (Y)The resulting villager child from a villager will play tag with other villager children and accept roses from Iron Golems until it matures into an adult villager.


Zombie Villager fact:


5) (Y)Zombie villagers may be cured by throwing a splash potion on them and later feeding them Golden Apples (standard, not enchanted) and waiting for a period of time.


Wolf/dog facts:


6) (Y)If the player is attacked when a tamed wolf is present(even if sitting) the wolf will come to the aid(rescue) of the player. They do not risk creeper explosions.


7) (X)If a tamed wolf`s heal is low, it will whine to the player for food. The higher its tail stand, the healthier the wolf is.


Zombie pigman fact:

8) (X)Zombie pigman will keep attacking you even if they kill you or you respawn. You need to keep a distance to them or returning to the overworld to be safe.


Ghast fact:


9) (X)Players can deflect ghast fireballs and hit the ghast back. It takes precision hitting it at the right moment with a sword. You can also drag the ghast near you by using a fishing rod.


Enderman fact:


10) (X)Enderman are weak to rain and water. Standing in a pool of water will make it easier to kill the mob. Players are advised to bring a bucket of water in case they meet an enderman in a cave.


Skeleton fact:


11) (X)A skeleton that comes in contact with a dropped pumpkin will wear it.


Golem fact:


12) (X)There must be at least 16 villagers and 21 houses in presents for a golem to spawn.

13) (Z)If a villager gets attacked, the golem will protect it (even if it doesn`t observe the attack). It will attack instantly.

14) (Y)Golems can`t swim in water.


15) (Y)Golems don`t take fall damage.


Witch fact:


16) (Y)When witches are attacked they try to heal themselves after a period of time. If the player tries to set them on fire they will drink a potion of fire resistance. If witches are not attacked quickly enough, they will try to heal themselves by drinking a potion of healing.



Horse fact:


17) (Y)Horses don`t like water, so if you have a horse and you want to tame in the water it will flail about and throw you off immediately after you try to mount it. You can build a few blocks underneath the horse to get it on dry land.



Bat fact:


18) (Z) The bat mob is totally useless in minecraft, until they add some good abilities to it.

Enderdragon fact:

19) (Z)The enderdragon is immune to water and lava.


Wither Fact:


20) (Z)The wither is immune to arrows due it`s wither armor.

Some of this, like the enderman one, are really known really well. You should change those, but overall, great blog!


*Looks at 20*


That explains a lot. Sometimes arrows can pass threw the armour, when it is not glowing.

I remember Beast Boy, Black Steve, Steve (Mob) and Rana, I just never saw them in game. I got Minecraft in the old days and really enjoyed some of the old mobs. The only way, I guess, to get them in game is using mods, but anyway really nice blog, already new them though, but I like testing my friends.

Nice blog Xoyjaz, but bats are not totally useless. If you feed them pumpkin pie, I believe it will be tamed and you can name and/or have it follow you.

bats:
Are useful because i made a plugin where mobs can ride on bats, hence having flying mobs/skeletons.

Giants:
Are once again easy to spawn as a plugin, and are natural in my world :D

Steve mob: The "Mobs are humans too" plugin does this :)

Bats: lol wut? Ofc its usefull if you edit the .-:

Giants: There is a spawn command for that

Human: That one is cool

We could only spawn those derps back in alpha. but Your plugin seems to be awesome.

I know all of them. And some are a tiny bit wring. Like villgers need 21 doors with a block behind.
But I know them all. I am proud on my 3 years of minecraft physics experience.

More can too. For faster production. (I build regulary my own iron golem farm) And yes actually. The hardest minecraft physics to know is mob spawn rates. But if you know that. It is quite easy to make xp farms.

'The wither is immune to arrows due it`s wither armor.'
Just as an update, the Wither becomes immune to projectiles when down to half-health.

No (x) are few people in the MC community knew about. I guess people who knows them all the people who comment the most. So I guess the (z) ones was the ones you didnt know.

I know: 1,2,6,7,9,10,17 and 18.
Me and my friend learned about one while I was at her house. I didn't feel like using her sister's computer so I just watched her and while she was spawning chickens the quadruplets popped out and she was going to give them all cool names that matched, but all four suffocated in the wall... xD

Yeah, they were!
(Note: You had to have been there to get the full effect because she was smiling so big she's like, "Your names are going to be Marcus, Marie, Megan and Mo-" Then she was just speechless, she had headphone so I was like "What's wrong..." She went "THEY DIED!!!" I just laughed because her face was literally this -> D:)

I KNEW EVERYTHING , EVERYTHING , EVERYTHING , Except for the Ocelot Fact and The Wolf Whining Facts , I didn't exactly know about the Iron Golem Spawning Rule , I knew that he spawned in big villages but I didn't know how much Villagers/Houses were required , Also , Can you tell me what you mean by houses? Do you mean Wooden Doors or Number of Natural generated Houses?

A house can be a box that has a 2x2 space inside and has a door. Wooden doors preferred.
