What's your favorite Y Coordinate to search for diamonds on?

#1LzyRobPosted 10/8/2011 4:27:24 PM

But seriously, what is your favorite (Or most successful) level to search for Diamonds in?

I find a good majority of my non-visible diamonds around Y:11

The purpose of this topic is to see if there is any specific Y coordinate that is more populated with diamonds than the rest

Right around 13. Not an unlucky number for me

Anywhere between 11 and 15, though I usually end up at 13-ish if I'm digging a branch mine because my technique is to dig stairs to the first bedrock I see and then go back up 8.
Press button, receive duck. Press button again, receive ductorate.
Don't press button third time. Don't ask why.

I used to always do 14, but after miscounting and trying 13 out once, I found 36 diamonds in a total of 15min.

Now I use 13.

There is no luck. 12 is the most common level without risk of lava.

I go to level 12 whenever I mine too, so if I run into lava, I'm safe. I'll just place some blocks over top of the lava and continue.

Diamonds, yay!

I'll just mine out these 4 here and there's one more in this wall! So I'll mine it out, jump down, and collect all 5 at once.

Isn't the highest chance of finding diamond between 16 and 10?
