Water Elevator does not work in death-pit EXP farm



  • I found a dungeon with a skeleton spawner, and I'm trying to build a "Death-pit Experience Farm" around it.

    With the help of wiki pages and youtube videos, I managed to use water to flush the mobs spawned to a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel, I'm planning to build a water elevator abusing the mob AI, hoping them to swim up 23 blocks and drop down from another pit:

    W
    L
    W
    L
    W
    L                     [ room  ]
    W                     [ with  ]
    L

    Everything works fine except the mobs will not swim upwards. They get stuck at the bottom of the water elevator. (If I myself follow the stream and hold "space", I'll reach the bottom of the water elevator and swim up smoothly.) Why aren't skeleton swim up? What have I done wrong?



  • http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Tutorials/Water_Ladder says that the water ladder no longer works (since beta 1.6.6).

    You should use signs instead.
