Ender-soldiers are Endermen and Skeletons AI combined together: The straffing and shooting ability of the Skeletons plus the teleportations and "staring = death" ability of the Endermen. Unlike Skeletons, they do not catch fire in sunlight, and they are harmed by water. Their shots are similar to a Ghast fireball, but they cannot destroy blocks. They are neutral, but they can become or spawn hostile if you're in an armory in an Ender-Fortress.
It is best to flood the armories with water to prevent the Ender-soldier spawners from working. When they shoot, you can deflect the projectile like you would a Ghast fireball.
Ender-Soldier Grinders must be built in the armories in Ender-fortresses because Ender-Soldiers never spawn outside of Ender-fortresses. To build an Ender-Soldier grinder:
- Find an armory in the fortress.
- Dig down one hundred blocks in the armory (make sure you have enough ladders).
- You may block off the spawners with any solid blocks as their shots doesn't destroy blocks.
- Go to the bottom of the pit and collect the loots.
