So, I hear that some of you want a chance to win the Mob Arena, do you not? Here, I'll show you how you can fight to reach further in the competitions and give you some hints on what to use.No more complaining about not being able to win now! So, let's proceed.First off, the mob arena is a special EMC event that's held every Wednesday by Maikar. Fight for survival, and beware that you WILL die and lose everything. The winner wins everything that was dropped on the floor after death and the glory!PREPERATIONBefore you even get IN the arena you need to be prepared so that you don't miss out. This includes having pretty much everything ready for fighting, either in your vault or on SMP5. Note, if you're competing for multiple rounds, you'll need 2 or 3 sets of most of the equipment.You will need the best equipment that you can find. This includes easy, hopefully cheap food with the most heart healing increments. Never forget food! You'll also need potions (definitely fire, strength potions), 2 or 3 swords, and full ENCHANTED armour (must use Protection III-IV). Use a bow if you like for those pesky ghasts/withers. Plus, for more drops and if you're brave enough to lose a spot on your weapon, try Looting!Try out various enchantments in different games, and see which ones work best, but Sharpness, Knockback are extremely useful!I don't particularly want to spoil it for people that took the time to figure out what to use, so that's all up to you BUT I'll give you a few hints; take into account duration length, damage strength, how much it will protect you and how much you can afford to lose.I won't keep everything secret though so here's something... use snowballs for blazes - they're fast and cheap - especially before people start dying. You can even use them as an alternative to Knockback. But shhh!STRATEGY In the early waves keep it at a low. Don't kill anything unless you need to. In fact, you won't need to kill anything during most of the game.Don't hit the zombie pigmen.. for the love of god, don't hit the pigmen!Try and stick to the SIDES. You'll find that this tends to be fire-free, and you can be pretty evasive.Accidentally hit a pigman? About to die? Enderpearl to the other side and run and pray that someone else is getting attacked by them. -No enderpearls, thanks Nick. Try and avoid the mobs, once again - no need to kill them all. Stick near the groups though - they'll most likely be killing whatever they see so if you get in to a bit of trouble, fight it and they can too.ADDITION: Everyone knows that mods are evil during these. If you camp in a corner, expect some clouds with a chance of creeper.ADDITION: Use splash potions, and share them for the first waves.This is about survival, not just killing. So survival first, killing second.*I don't want to ruin the winners glory, so if you think that I gave too detailed tips, please let me know and I'll review it. But I do want to help people that are struggling out.*May the mobs be in your favour!
