Introduction: Minecraft Mob Grinder

About: Live life to the fullest bro.

This is the ultimate mob grinder it is very effective and easy to make. I'll be making it in creative but it is meant for survival

Step 1: Finding the Perfect Building Space

Find a large flat area.

Step 2: Getting Started

Build a row of twenty blocks.

Step 3: Adding Water

Do the same two blocks over and connect them at the ends. Then fill both ends with water and you should have four blocks in the middle without water.

Step 4: Making a Cross

Now break the two blocks that are not touching water on both sides. Then add a row of eight blocks to it forming a cross. Then fill them with water.

Step 5: Filling in the Empty Spaces

Just follow the pics for this one.

Step 6: Making the Hole of Death

In the four blocks without water dig a really deep hole. It has to be really deep so that the mobs will die when they fall. I think the minimum is 25 blocks but I'm not positive.

Step 7: Getting Back to the Surface

At the bottom of your hole dig into the side of the wall and make a long tunnel. If it isn't long enough you will dig into your grinder. Then dig up putting ladders on the wall as you go. Don't forget to put a door on the big hole that mobs will die in.

Step 8: Making the Room Completely Dark

Add walls and a roof and make sure no light is getting in or mobs won't spawn. It should be completely dark.

Step 9: Enjoy

Just walk down the ladder and go down the tunnel, open th door and TaDa free mob items. Enjoy your unlimited arrows.

The reason why this doesn't work (and trust me) is because 1. Enemies can get back onto the platform when they get in the water. I suggest creating the mob spawning floor 3 blocks higher than the water trench. 2. They don't have the incline to go in the water. Having a villager (with a name tag applied to it, a bed and a work station) in the 4 blocks above where the mobs fall will encourage zombies to jump in after it. To get creepers in the water, have tamed cats with name tags sit in the corners of the mob spawning room.

It won't work if it is set on Peaceful mode so check your difficulty.

No, you will only get XP when you kill a mob by yourself

Is the chunk you built it in loaded and was Minecraft running the whole time? If the chunk isn't loaded, the mobs won't spawn. Leaving Minecraft also makes it not work.

to all that are saying it doesn't work it wont work because of the fact that this was 7 years ago and therefore obsolete (no longer up to date) you would have to go afk at the top and set up a hopper system at the bottom with chests so that the items don't despawn for this to work

When you make the grinder make sure all the caves beneath are lit or you can do it up in the sky so the mobs will spawn where you want it to instead of spawning in the caves
