Experience of playing video game Minecraft for 10 years
I’ve been playing Minecraft for over ten years
and it still surprises me
and I learn things every single time I play.
Here’s what I’ve recently found out
I was recently taught about
this super fast speed trick
where you can run so fast!!!
And don’t worry, I’m gonna explain exactly
what just happened.
So here’s what you need:
a pair of boots with Depth Strider III
and Soul Speed III
And with a set-up like this
you too can go the speed of light.
You put a dolphin above soul sand
to keep it alive
and then water on top of slabs
and all you got to do is activate your elytra,
hold down control and get dolphin’s grace
and off you gooo!
Of course it does run out
after seven seconds.
However, if you top up this system
with regular dolphins,
you can make this last pretty indefinitely.
And if you don’t want to run,
you can always remove these
and just get stuck in swim mode,
you can go so fast!!
Yeah, I hit the end of the road.
You could technically go indefinitely.
Thank you for Etho for teaching me this one.
And here’s a very funny clip
of the very first time
Etho showed me this trick
and just how excited I was.
[GRIAN] Woohooo! Ahhaaahhaaa!!
[ETHO] You need ehm…
[ETHO] You just need Depth Strider.
[GRIAN] Aaahhh woohooohooo!
[SCAR] Okay, what do you do?
[ETHO] I think you got it?
[SCAR] Ooohh aaahh haa haa haa!
I made the best noises there.
I’m disappointed, Cub,
in your R2-D2 game
[ETHO] That’s what it is!
You sounded just like R2-D2.
[GRIAN] Now this next one,
I haven’t even tested.
I don’t know if this is true,
so this is part myth busting,
part “I found this out”.
So apparently for some reason,
turtles drop a very weird thing
when they’re killed by lightning.
So if I summon some lightning bolts…
Apparently you’ve really got to try a few times
to make this work, I’ve just-
I would just embarrass myself
by thinking that this doesn’t work
There it is!
Why is this a feature?
This is made of wood!
Oh no, it doesn’t say wooden bowl.
It just says bowl.
your shell is meant to be made of wood
or one of you guys
have been eating some mushroom stew.
This is a real feature, by the way.
This is working as intended.
This blew my mind
when I was taught this.
As you can tell a conversation with Etho
unravels a whole bunch of Minecraft weirdness
including redstone ore
which if you can get some XP to sit on top off,
as you can see,
creates an incredible amount-
Oh my goodness!
– of animation particles.
Now for some reason,
the XP activates the redstone ore’s effect
multiple times over and over again
and this increases
with the amount of XP that you throw.
So use this knowledge
because I believe you can probably make a client
very, very laggy.
Of course the XP won’t last forever.
Oh man, it looks like it’s on fire
but as soon as it comes off,
the effect is lost.
It’s been a feature for awhile now
that you can crawl into a one high space.
And it’s also well known that you cannot
go into a half a block high space
even if I try to crawl in this way.
However, there are a few tricks
that can be employed.
For some reason you can fly in between two beds.
So technically this sort of bunk bed is possible.
But it is actually possible
to squeeze into a half a block space
by using snow blocks.
By flying in here, you can crawl in
a half a block space.
However I cannot
go any further.
It only works with snow blocks
but as you can see,
it’s on exactly the same level.
This just looks so weird.
This might be useful for hiding your base.
Speaking of snow, using leather boots
and a couple of powdered snow buckets,
you’re actually able
to do something quite strange.
You can scaffold
in the air
with no trace whatsoever
using powdered snow
because of your ability
to pick it up with a snow bucket.
The practical use of this is questionable
but you could use this as a clean way
to get up to your builds
without creating much mess
because when you’re done,
you can just… fall to your death.
I recently learned that you can die
in the most ridiculous kinds of ways.
And this one tops the list
of things I definitely did not know.
All you need is a chestplate
that has thorns on it.
And as a lot of us already know
if you punch something wearing thorns
it hurts you back.
But did you know you can put this armour
and if you punch them
you can die?
Grian was killed trying to hurt a villager.
As you might guess by the fact
that there’s an allay up there,
you can also do the same with them.
Why can’t I hurt you?
So apparently I can only punch
an allay when it’s not holding something.
As soon as I give it the armour,
I can no longer hurt it.
Now I don’t know a lot about allays
but I have just learned that this second.
That wasn’t meant to be what was in the video!
Hold on, I need to test something.
I’m on a second account.
Look how pretty I am.
And I’m wondering if I can…
It- You can do that.
So it turns out
as long as someone else gives the allay
the thorns item
then it works!
Now probably the most embarrassing thing
that you could ever die to I think in this game
is an inanimate object
like the armour stand.
Look at that!
Grian was killed trying to hurt armour stand.
I think I deserved that,
shouldn’t be punching armour stands.
I feel like this next technique
might be something that every single person knows
Here is an ocean monument
where you can get sponges.
Now normally you need to break through
or go and swim in and try
and get it with some milk
but Etho told me
you can do it with just TNT
and it doesn’t matter if you have mining fatigue
because all you got to do is light the TNT,
break some string underneath
and it actually damages
underneath the water.
The TNT sits inside-
Oh oh noooo!
We’ll try this again.
The TNT sits inside the sand
and not only does damage
but also breaks the blocks.
So repeat this over and over again
and you can get yourself
access to that all important sponge.
Another thing that you may not know
and I recently found out
is that there was an entirely unused potion
called potion of luck.
It looked like this
and if you drink it,
it gives you green particles
and gives you this lovely lucky symbol.
This was never formally added to the game,
hence why we needed a command,
but what it’s supposed to do
is increase your luck
in chests although…
That doesn’t seem to work at all based on this.
In fact I’d say it’s almost the opposite.
But still, it’s something I learned.
Now I don’t want to pretend
that I’m an expert in Minecraft rabbits
but I did recently find out
that there is a killer bunny
that looks like-
Yeah it’s even named: The Killer Bunny.
I’m in creative mode so it can’t hurt me
but if I go into survival,
oh yeah, yeah he even made a noise.
No no noo! Noo!
And something else I’d learned
is that you can rename bunnies
to Toast to change the way that they look.
But of course if you rename the killer bunny,
he still goes for you!
I really wish
that this was in Vanilla Minecraft.
Many of us may have actually seen
a flying squid in their time in Minecraft
but I’ve just learned why.
And it’s been a conundrum for quite some time.
Now squids are one of the few mobs
that actually ignore
the effect of a bubble column
where it pushes you to the top like so.
You see? They don’t get pushed up.
However if we step out,
the game still thinks that they’re flying
and eventually we start
seeing something very strange.
There’s definitely some miscommunication
between the game’s code
and what we actually end up seeing.
Is there something you can teach me in Minecraft?
