sword if I have it on me, and bow if I'm lucky. If there is a large bunch of creepers coming at me and I don't have anything terribly valuable on me, I sometimes intentionally set off one creeper to kill all the rest.
i use the chaos emeralds to...
oops wrong game. but seriously :wink.gif:
i weaken myself, and lose half health, burn my diamond tools and armour and fist fight it or bash it with roses. it may take OVER 9000 tries but its worth it in the end. its the best way because it gives you a sense of accomplishment!!
best way anyone would ever think of, nice thinking thinker of the thinkeries in thinkyville, thinkscounty.
My way of killing creepers (And all mobs) is to run at them with sprint,
then to jump and go past them usually the AI they have doesnt pick that up right away so i have time to kill them with mah diamond sword :biggrin.gif:
