You can also change the ratio of survivals to direct kills from falls by adding a block or two to the pit to raise part of its level, permitting more survivors, even though they still have very low health. My problem is spiders. My drowning traps work fine.
You can do this by Shift-clicking the hopper as you place the plate. Put fence posts under the water current and upside down half slabs above. Before we leave mob grinders, or at least start to look at them in the context of defensive traps, I want to show you one more technique that provides a safe way to collect experience points.
Using mob farms and grinders is the single best way to gather enormous amounts of useful resources, so do delve in. Click to enlarge but how many blocks can you put in front of it? Now, if we'd just use postfix syntax like sensible people, this wouldn't even be an issue.

Large-scale mob farms can spawn hundreds of mobs per minute, grind them up like so much raw meat, and deliver their drops through an automated collection system into a bundle of chests.
Use upturned dispensers kitted out with flint, steel, and pressure plates to create the ultimate mob barbecue.
The goal is to reduce the mobs to a single point of health, allowing them to be dispatched with a single punch. Just tried the flaming arrows! This design, although extremely compact, does have an issue with light from the lava leaking into the mob farm, somewhat reducing its spawn rate.
Switching to the real world, you might consider using the natural fall of terrain to create a lengthier sequence, as shown in Figure 4. AlkVelron AlkVelron 7 years ago 9 My drowning traps work fine.
