  1. Hey, I found at least 1 cave spider spawner. Are they able to be picked up? I would like to farm them.
  2. spawners can not be mined, only destroyed, sorry, if you want to farm them you need to do so in the current location.
  3. Ok. Nice to know.
  4. There are a variety of ways to deal with spawners. You can dig a 25-block pit underneath so that when they spawn they fall and lose all but one half heart. You can set up a keyhole system which allows you to hit them with a weapon, but keeps them from reaching you. You can also put in a watercourse to funnel their drops to a single spot.
  5. Yes they can. You need a silk touch pickaxe.
  6. they can't!
  7. Hmmmm. Notch must have removed that.
  8. ya he did after the pre release of 1.9
