How can I better hunt Endermen?

There is a problem that I face, how can I kill a enderman and not lose something like 4-6 hearts?

Also, does a enderman have more protection and/or more attack if they're holding a item?

The easiest method is to build a roof with a 2 block space underneath it. He needs a 3 block space to walk, but you only need 2. You have a longer reach than the Enderman, meaning you can hit him while under the roof, but he can't hit you.

Stand under the roof, look at an Enderman, then look away to draw him in, and then hit him with the pointy end.

What do you mean by pointy end? – Jeffrey Lin Nov 20 '12 at 0:38
I prefer the pointy end 99% of the time. – Sadly Not Nov 20 '12 at 1:31
@JefreyLin: It's a reference to Game of Thrones. It means a sword. – MBraedley Nov 20 '12 at 3:24
Thanks! ;-) I was just looking at on of your other conversations about the breaking blocks on adventure mode! – the awesome ninja Nov 20 '12 at 8:12
