Written by a recognized Minecraft expert, this useful guide walks you through mining, smelting, and other methods of obtaining redstone, and teaches you how to make the most of your redstone stores. Craft a compass, piston, lamp, or torch, brew a potion that reverts to Level 1, or turn it to dust to help find nearby power components. Whether you're in Creative or Survival mode, redstone mastery is crucial for successful gameplay.

    &starf Hardcore Invasion &starf part three

    Diamondarcher shuddered when he heard the enderman's cry. When he saw it teleport, he knew he was in trouble. He quickly scrolled through his quickbar and then looked through his inventory until he found what he was looking for. A water bucket. He splashed the water at the enderman and it gave a shreik of pain. It died after a few seconds, and dropped an ender eye. Diamondarcher said "Did you look at it?" Ironviking replied "No, it was unporovoked. I was too busy looking at that horde of zombies over there." As soon as he had said it, a cacophony of zombie moans rang out across the desert biome. Diamondarcher scrolled to his flame aspect bow, and he saw Ironviking pull out his sword. Diamondarcher fired flaming arrows while Ironviking charged at the massive mob. As the zombies advanced on the duo, they thinned their ranks. As Diamondarcher got hit by one, he noticed his hearts change to hardcore hearts. They finished the mob, and discovered that both of them had hardcore hearts. Diamondarcher heard a enderman call in the distance, and chills ran down his spine. "It's just a game.", he told himself. But was it really? Thanks for reading. Be sure to comment if you have a suggestion or want to be in the story. My next post will be in Confronting the Dragon. -----bottlecaps8

    To sky and Prof. Aiden

    Oh no, professoraiden is innocent on the charge of the blackholes, which only didn't go off because i forgot a peice, which is now on. They will go off on my command. Surrender within the time limit(not gonna tell you that time limit), and you will be spared. To Prof. Aiden: as said above, you are not the one who used the threat of these blackholes, i did, so stop taking credit!!!! From:?????????
