Only way I think... any kind of path you want to make will be destroyed or you'll be knocked off because of ghasts shooting you. I tried to do it many times.. But because a lot of the time it involves making floating bridges across a giant lake of lava...
I agree it's cheep a bit.. But.. The main reason is I don't want it taking a week to make when I could do it in 2 hours or less o peaceful.
Okay, guess I will try that, I just wish there was a less cheap way.

I am fine with how it is, the only reason that I would like this to get implemented is because... GHASTS ARE SO "#"#$%" ANNOYING!!! Seriously, when you hear a ghast for a long time it becomes irritating, but when you hear 4 or 5 at the same time for a loooooooooong time... oh man
Aww I kind of like the sound of ghosts...they're so netherish. They scare the crap outta my dog though.

Ehh... I don't seem to have too many problems with that... I just remember to build walls around my paths out over lava. cobblestone is in abundance and doesn't get destroyed due to ghast fireballs, and as long as you have at least a 1-2 block wall on either side of you, it is very difficult for the ghast to knock you off your bridge, and their fireballs don't really do that much damage individually.
My BIGGEST problem with Ghasts, I have to admit, is trying to harvest glowstone. Invariably, a large portion of glowstone would be available directly over a sea of lava... which makes it difficult to gather in the first place, but more so when ghast fireballs keep blowing it up and into the lave before you can build a platform to catch them.
Used to really me off before Blazes were introduced, because glowstone was a limited resource prior to that point.
Now.. I just make sure I take an enchanted bow with me, and if any ghast is truly annoying me, I kill it. If not, I wait until they are over ground that I can get too... or try to lure them to ground I can get to before killing them to collect their drops. remember, the more ghasts you kill, the less likely that a new ghast will spawn to replace it, and with a max MOB spawn cap in an area, you can work that to your advantage.
I also bring a few stack of cobble with me, and when they start to crater the ground around me, I just patch it with cobblestone, it looks kind of patchwork when you get done, but becomes far more ghast resistant in the future as you go...and carpeting the whole ground in cobble just takes too much time.
I honestly don't mind this because glowstone is meant to be very hard to get and each block drops several shards anyway. But I'm glad they made blazes drop them.
