Enderman Farms Edit

Enderman Farms provide Ender Pearls. They are also commonly used as XP farms.

Pushing mobs using other mobs Edit

Usually ghasts or slimes are used for this method. It is recommended to name the ghasts and slimes, to prevent them from despawning. Also named ghasts and slimes to not contribute to the mob cap.

Example for an overworld mob farm using named slimes:

Using Mob AI Edit

These farms use the AI of mobs to get them off their platforms. Most commonly the Wander AI is exploited, since that´s quite easy, but it´s also possible to exploit entity avoiding or targeting behaviours to get mobs off their platforms more reliably.

An example for a overworld mob farm relying on wandering behaviour would be the following farm: Etho's design

Using water streams Edit

Pushing mobs using pistons Edit
