Ok so the ghast is a fun new thing for minecraft and are in the nether realm they are 4x4x4 and fly . they have one attack they shoot (what looks like) a flameing snow ball that blows up like a small TNT blast and all blood stone near by will be on fire. Melee may work but you need luck that they fly up to you or a fishing rod to grab and pull them closer to you. The best way to kill them is to have a good aim and a bow and arrows. fire and lava do no damage to them. nether portals can be stoped and will need to be started up for them to work if hit by a Ghast fire ball.the fire balls of the ghast can be hit and shot back at the Gast but you need good timeing. if not hit at the right time it will hit you and 3 or 4 of them will kill you. thank you WirelessFlower for reminding me
Have fun fighting the Ghast :biggrin.gif:
P.S. I did this with out looking at the wiki for minecraft so go there for more info on the Ghast
edit: I did not put this up but Ghast have the same drop as a creeper
guys... notch screwed up. he moddelled the creeper off a picture, and in the picture, he forgot to take red eye off!!! no wonder there pissed... here, lucky for me, i have a program with red eye. here:
there, now the white creepers shoudn't bother you so much.
i can confirm that ghasts can spawn with in 15 blocks of a portal if theres a 4x4x4 space.
i wish i could of got vid of the ghast but i was to busy trying not to get blown up so it wasen't the first thing i thought of. = :sad.gif:
That they sometimes tire of living and end their existence by running straight into the lava pillars. Xd
Also that their sound is bugged so that distance doesn't affect it and they sound like they're right next to you even when the nearest ghast is miles off. Actually, I think this is something that should remain "broken", since IMHO it ups the creepy factor of the Nether many times over. Especially when they ram the aforementioned lava pillars and that soft cooing turns into horrific shrieking and then you need a new pair of undies. Xd
