I'm building ethos machine do you think the sticky pistons with pressure plates are with the time ?

What do you mean? Your grammar is horrible.

I have a blaze farm on my server. It works perfectly.

Sorry, I meant, in ethos tutorial after he built the top part of the machine under the glass he place sticky pistons triggered by a pressure plate to push the blaze down, but he said that this sometimes has a negative effect by hurting the blaze, so that's why I ask if its worth the time to make pistons

IMO a chest full of fire resist and strengths work better than a farm. Just easier to kill them yourself.

Uses a lot of glass for potions and everything else. Its inefficient.

TC the farm works fine. If you are worried about the blazes taking damage before reaching the main chamber just use glass in front of the pistons instead of stone.

I heard that glass is not recommended as the blaze may get stuck and glitch out

Sand generator mixed with looting on the sword. Iff blaze rods and glass. With a 1 hit sword? Inefficient lol.

Yes. Still inefficient.

Your looting sword wouldn't last forever. You would need to make more and that takes materials.

Thats not even accounting for time wasted making glass, weapons etc.
Doing it that way is also very inefficient on time.

With the farm, no equipment is needed and I can walk down there anytime I want.

No equipment, no time wasting. Very efficient.

No.


Regardless I used stone. It is very rare for them to take damage on the way down.

Protip: ethos timer is set to 108 ticks, set yours to 95 ticks.
