    Depending on how common they are, they may not be encountered enough to where the creepiness factor wears off. I think that they will be a mob that you won't fight often, but one that will occupy part of your thoughts if you spot one. You may be carefully watching it while going about your business, but very rarely will combat actually occur. They will be more like an monitored potential threat, rather than a constant annoyance.


    I think it may depend on whether they spawn in caves. They don't seem like a cave mob to me. Then again, creepers don't really fit in in caves either. They'll definitely be more of a danger in caves when they'll be difficult to spot and you're more likely to put your cursor over one on accident. Out in the open, probably not much of a problem.

    One question on my mind is what happens to them during the day. Do they burn or just disappear? I think it would be creepier if they used their powers to teleport away just as the sun comes up, or if they headed for the nearest hill or row of trees and disappeared as soon as they left the player's sight.

    I'm hoping for Pigmen. I can't eat human flesh.

    Unless...

    I quit WoW a few years ago but this brings back good memories. Hope for a download when it's done. Also, I second the motion to do Undercity! Undercity and Orgrimmar are my favorites.

    Easy solution:

    If you look at one, kill it. It doesn't move when you look at it.


    Doubt Notch will make it that easy.

    It's not the surprise that makes creepers interesting, it's strategy! You see a creeper on a hill. Do you leave it alone or try to sneak up on it, hoping there aren't other creepers near by? What if you find yourself in a large cave deep underground with one of each type of mob? You have to use your weapons and the lay of the land to take them out.

    Enderman definitely has something to offer in terms of strategy; it's the only mob you can't run away from. Once you're in combat it will teleport to you when you get too far away, so you can never outrun it no matter what you do. It's also the tallest mob. You can hide from it more easily, but it can also reach you when other mobs can't. We still don't know how moving blocks will change our strategy. Maybe Endermen can only move blocks the player can move with their bare hands. However, if they can move blocks can they also place them and use them to overcome barriers? There's a lot to think about!

    Are the Endermen/Farlanders giving off a black smoke or did they just spawn? O.o

    I wonder what notch means when he says "you look at them." It could be directly, or glimpse it while panning around.

    Although I would get my trustworthy single player commands and use /killnpc all. Cheating ftw. [iapprove]


    He said specifically they won't attack unless you put your cursor over them.

    I don't think you guys realize... it only attacks you when you're looking away... soo... an idea...:

    Get close to them, look at them and just beat the hell out of them with your mighty sword. Problem solved?


    I'm pretty sure they also attack once hit. Otherwise they would be pretty lame.

    Has anyone tried to figure out how tall endermen are? The one with it's back to the player looks to be standing about six blocks away. My best guess is three blocks tall, but a better way would be to go on SMP and do a test.

    I wonder if you can kill this mob by dropping blocks on it. Or would it just catch the block and throw it back at you? O.o

    Where did Notch say they were called endermen? Anyway, I do like the name. Though if they turned out to be a neutral mob it probably wouldn't fit as much. Enderman has a menacing ring to it.

    The slendermen don't seem to be paying much attention to the player. Is that signifigant?

    posted a message on Notch is splitting the game in two :(
    I think it's still way too early to take sides on 1.8. While I admit some of the RPG elements are a bit... disappointing... we don't know how they'll be implemented yet. If the leveling system is done properly it could blend well with Minecraft as it is. I'm not even sure if leveling will be part of survival mode. Instead of stressing about this now, I'm going to withhold judgement until I see the final product.
