Whenever I build something out of expensive blocks (like emerald blocks), a silly Enderman walks past and steal a block. Is there any way to prevent this, without ruining the creation (putting water around it, and spamming torches everywhere)?


1 Answer 1


Endermen will only steal naturally occuring blocks (like dirt, stone or grass). Build your house of planks or stonebricks or something similar and you should be fine.

    @ratchetfreak Then this answer needs a source that confirms it. At least a newer source then that answer.
