Does fortune enchant help with mining glowstone?  I tried it on a couple blocks of glow stone and it yielded 4 glowstone most of the time, and 3 the others.  I didn't see the block drop 2 or 5 glowstone dust.

Fortune does help with glowstone dust. It helps with anything that drops an item as opposed to itself (i.e. redstone, coal, glowstone, diamond, lapis, etc).

Fortune I just has a rather low yield. The results are more noticeable with Fortune II or Fortune III.

You will not be able to duplicate the glowstone (IE getting 5+ dust), but you will more commonly get 4 dust instead of 3 or 2.

In 1.0.0, they fixed Fortune and Glowstone so you can't duplicate it by getting more than 4 dust from 1 block. The only effect Fortune has on Glowstone is that you have an increased chance of getting 4 dust.
If it's tainted, blow it up. If taint persists, blow it up again.

Is there a mod that makes it so that you could get up to 5 glowstone dust from glowstone using fortune? I think it is stupid that high levels of fortune enchantment still slowly whittles away at your reserves, pretty much forcing you to switch to creative mode.

Why don't you just use a mod like TMI or Single Player Commands then?  It sounds like you're playing survival but don't care about being legit, so why not? :blink:

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.
