Block ID conflict
The page says that sand and gravel will not turn into items when they land on end rods, but that is only partially true. If you place an end rod sideways it is no longer treated as a full block by the fallingsand entities.
The article says in the usage section that they can be used to climb End City towers, but it says in the version history that it was changed so you cannot step up on them. --Qwerty6811 (talk) 14:29, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
- I think it rather means you cannot step onto it without jumping. It still has its hitbox so you can stand on it right?JackAlpha26 (talk) 14:42, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
How end rod is not transparent?
I am not sure, however, in opacity "primary purpose of opacity is to tell the game engine if it needs to draw behind the block". In that sense, I think end rod shall be transparent block, because almost all the space is not occupied, and I can see behind of the block. Maybe am I missing something?

The end rod will drop when in contact with water in Java Edition but will flood in Bedrock Edition like what happens with stairs, slabs and chests.
Some info about how the water passthrough the block (in the data value section) would also be appreciated.
