Misconception: You will die if you fall into water that is one block deep from a great height. False! In the PC version of Minecraft, you can survive falling into water that is one block deep. Now that that's out of the way, let me show you a little thing called a water drop.

I'll explain this as simply as possible: A water drop is when, just before hitting the ground, right-clicking the ground with a water bucket just in time to place the water down to resist fall damage. That's right. If you place water down under you just before you hit the ground, you will take no fall damage. 

Yes. This means it is possible to jump off of a high place above the ground and save yourself by placing water down below you just before you hit the ground.

How to successfully do a water drop:

This is something that takes skill and practice.

When you jump off of a high place, hold a water bucket in your hand. At about five blocks from the ground, start right clicking the ground. I can almost guarantee you will fail miserably and take fall damage, but you just need to get the hang of it. 

Don't just right-click all the way down because your fingers will get tired and slow your clicking pace. 

Anyways that's as best as I can explain it.

Please, if you're confused and have a question or want to know more about something, leave a comment or PM me.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you can become a water drop champion.
