Strangely enough, I had a desire to rewatch that episode this evening, lol. Have to love how the cable company's logo is a mix between Time Warner's and Comcast's. Nailed it.

Wash, rinse, repeat until little horsey gives you some hearts.

Get on and check inventory, at which point you give horsey a saddle for control and some armor for cool!

Go riding.

THE END



Edit: I don't watch South Park, so naturally I had no frickin' idea why Brad would need to learn how to tame a horse. Out of shear, morbid curiosity, I followed the link and now I know.

Weirdos!

Otherwise …

Good idea! That boosted it to +13.25 Attack Damage.

That's enough to kill most things from the Fire damage after knocking them away. One-shotting most things ftw!

I'm sorely disappointed by this nerfed recipe:

This is the stupidest most stupid recipe for doing something in Minecraft I've ever seen.

How to make a campfire.

What. The. Hell.



Stupid.

Well, to be fair, that isn't actually a crafting recipe. Also, someone (as per usual) had far too much free time on their hands to come up with that.

^^^ I'll stick to rubbing two, er, sticks together!



For anyone who doesn't know: Sea Lanterns!

At their fundamental level, Sea Lanterns are in the same league as Glowstone. If you break them without a Silk Touch pick, they collapse into particles of Prismarine Crystal. It requires 5 crystals and 4 Prismarine Shards* to craft a Sea Lantern block.

So, in absence of a Silk Touch Pick, one Sea Lantern requires five Prismarine Crystals and four Prismarine Shards. If you have trouble with math, that translates into mining a minimum of two existing Sea Lanterns (or getting lucky with five Guardians) and the ruthless slaughter of anywhere from two to every Guardian around an Ocean Monument.

For those of you looking to harvest Sea Lanterns for a living, I strongly suggest you go with your best armor. You will need a fancy helmet with Respiration (preferably III) and Aqua Afinity. I also suggest a Silk Touch pick so you don't waste effort and energy. Frontal attacks are not the best way in. Once you locate a Monument**, tunnel in at a distance and work from underground into the Monument, then work from the inside out. You will have less chance of getting surrounded.

One more thing: There will be as many as 3 Elder Guardians*** (bosses) which induce mining fatigue from a long distance. This is apparently to prevent you from mining the Monument until it has been rid of the yuckies. The payoff is three new types of greenish block and (most importantly) Sea Lanterns!! The treasure is basically worthless (8 gold blocks—the sale of all 8 might yield 1 Lantern once they get into the store) and not worth the effort IMO. New blocks and Lanterns are the real catch in these things.

Due to the VERY low obtainability of these rascals, I suspect Sea Lanterns are gonna be holy lots o' cheap in the store!





On the subject of Guardians, I just witnessed several of them blasting squid from at least 10 blocks away. So 1) they do not like squid; and 2) they have a very long range, making bows the only logical choice for dealing with them.

FYI: Be well armored. They swim in packs that can be quite large.

Edit: One more thing: Just for giggles, I used Creative Mode to spawn a guardian on land and near water. Sucker flopped around like a, um, fish out of water until it worked its way down to the ocean and plopped in.Suckers like water!

* Prismarine Shards can ONLY be obtained by slaughtering guardians! A Guardian will drop anywhere from zero to two shards! Guardians will also drop Prismarine Crystals in the 0-1 quantity. Remember: You need four shards to craft one Sea Lantern!

** A trick to finding monuments might be the Sea Lanterns. I was able to see them glowing from about a hundred blocks away. Whether that was luck, bug or design I do not know.

*** Elder Guardians can and will target boats!

Wow, that really does suck. I mean, I'm not generally a convention goer but that would be pretty interesting to have happen. Likely able to get a chargeback on if a credit card was used.

You can change your username in MC now, which is nice for dummies like me that signed up with their actual name (in my defense, it wasn't really apparent that would happen back then... NOTCH!).

Go to account.mojang.com and provided the new name isn't already taken by a paying account it's easy to switch.

So it goes.

Yay! I've been wanting to change my silly user name.

But, I don't know. WS, Whammer, Whamster. I've gotten a bit used to it.

What to do?

When I first started playing, my usual user name (kscherer) was taken and I settled on WhammerSlammer, which I have never liked.

Thanks, Grey, for the update. The Mojang purge left my original name available, so I am now kscherer!

Woohoo!

So, I don't know when this might get changed in the sticky, but I'm no longer that weird yet incredibly sexy username. I'm 709 now. Because 709.

So it goes.
