I suspect the will br like endermen and only harn certain blocks ie dirt etc.

I cannot see notch letting a random thing like this destroy peoples creations unless we can make guided arrow launches or upgraded snowmen.

Btw snowmen are invisible on world 4 you make em the shoot but you can't see them.

Notch has said they phase, but that video looks very much like destruct rather than phase through the blocks like a ghost.

Originally, it hit walls and couldn't move through them. It awkwardly turned around and changed direction. The player can easily create walls on their own, and trying to make an AI to properly navigate arbitrary terrain before the code freeze next tuesday isn't feasible when there's so much more we need to do.


And since the dragon is going to start out as an overpowered boss enemy (I'm definitely adding less overpowered dragons for the main world after release), we don't want too many easy ways to deal with it, so we had a short design meeting and decided to make it cheat.

They will be different dragons. The Enderdragon will probably become larger, and the ones in the main world will be this size, won't go through terrain, and will be red because dragons are red.
Hopefully the snowman issue will be fixed as of tonight when we restart the world (http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ml#post3297793).

According to the wiki:

Which makes me suspect that once Notch has added the Enderdragon to the End, the dragon can just suddenly appear through the ground in front of you. Any defenses you have built against the endermen etc will be totally destroyed by the dragon flying through them unless they are made of obsidian or white stone. It will be very interesting how Notch ends up making the boss battle for the End.
