it would be cool if enderman could make a hole in my house and steal my stuff, and the drop would be something like shadow block - a block that can be mixed with a chest and make a protected chest - from the protected chest enderman could not steal.:rolleyes:
The wiki lists it as confirmed because of that image. The wikie possesses no more information than we do, it just does a better job of providing its sources. When that source is the image we are looking at, the wiki's inclusion is fairly moot.
endermen are cool but will they be able to come out of mob spawners?
[/quotMaybe in mob spawners but not in naturals dungeons (I THINK) because it would be too easy: just put a pumpkin head and destroy the spawner...
If scroll to the bottom of the pictures, you can see the "end of the world" in third person mode.
That's where they come from.
It's much better to relate them to something IN minecraft don't you think?
2. How they work
>Wander, pick up random blocks and place them randomly around if there is no player or light.
>Attracted to light, but won't go in it, stand on the edge of the light.
>If it's a torch they run into the light, catch fire, pick up the torch and run away with it
>If it's light-stone they just don't ****ing bother (or a lantern).
>they sometimes create partial nether portals or just random stone hedge like constructions.
>If they see a player, they stop dead and they all stare straight at the player till he looks away.
>They are peaceful, don't attack at all, if attacked they just poof away.
This would make them more of an ambient thing. More creepy then just attacking you.
>Visit Endermen village
>They are all moving blocks and building structures
>Approach, they all stop and stare at me
>Back away, they go on moving blocks
>Approach again, they stare again
>As the world starts to fade out, you see a flash of the Enderman, face directly in front of your character
>No trace of him, it's like he was never there.
A story someone made up (not the best)
Day 18 after the crash
Still alive and well. Smelted and smithed my first iron today. I now have a crude iron sword to fight these monstrous beasts.
I'm writing to day to report on the strange patterns I found on the ground today. They are not natural, but are strangely random. I will search for more info tomorrow.
No change in the buildings, stayed inside for most of the day rained.
Day 20. The patterns are expanding, I think. They are getting more expansive and complicated. I beginning to see a pattern.
I'm back at the house today. I watched the ruins for 4 days straight. I saw strange points of light surrounding the patterns and moving. I just saw floating pricks of light.
I'm not going back to the ruins. I looked to where I staked out the patterns and saw three silhouettes in the window. I'm not going back.
The patterns are finished. They form a shape. A skinny human thing with bony arms and legs and a monstrous head. I don't know what they are.
I'm looking out of my window. The patterns are alive. They are moving. They're taking my torches away. I don't see it happen, but I know it does. When I look, the shadows stand stock still and stare at me with their white eyes. They are slowly moving towards my camp. I'm leaving now.
Another story/gameplay suggestion
>deep underground mining
>suddenly drop into pitch black room
>place a torch at your feet
>THE ROOM IS ABSOLUTELY FILLED WITH ENDERMEN ALL STARING AT YOU
>BEFORE YOU CAN REACT, AN ENDERMAN DASHES UP AND REMOVES THE BLOCK YOU PUT THE TORCH ON, LEAVING YOU IN THE DARK
>IN A PANIC, YOU QUICKLY PLACE ANOTHER TORCH
>THE ROOM IS COMPLETELY EMPTY, SAVE FOR YOU
>sleep mechanic implemented
>after a long day of work, you go to bed
>wake up in the morning, and go about your normal routine
>get an odd feeling that something is wrong
>the entire ceiling of your house is gone
>endermen surround the edges, just staring down at you
>you will never know how long they have been watching you
d devoted to them would be a better place the 1.8 discussion.

Muncher is right, listen to him, he can cure the blind and make paraplegics walk.
What if they turned out to be nice (not including after you look at them)!? Perhaps they are nature's maintenence crew - filling in creeper holes, or [speculated] repairing silverfish damage. This is obviously just some random idea.
I like the idea of them moving things around, but in a way that is not necessarily obvious - moving grass, not dirt. Subtle changes over time... Places gradually becomes harder to recognize...
