solid transparent blocks[edit source]

Currently, the page states: "Ghasts will not fire at the player without a line-of-sight, which can be blocked by solid transparent blocks." Does it mean to say that line-of-sight can be blocked by solid OR transparent blocks? Can you block line-of-sight with a glass block? Can you block line-of-sight with a glass pane? Can you block line-of-sight with an iron bar? Thanks for the help. -Howarthe (talk) 06:51, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Pretty sure it does mean 'solid or transparent' (non air) blocks. You can make tunnels out of glass and the ghasts don't fire at you in them. Haven't tried iron bars or glass panes, though. --Azaram (talk) 17:52, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure it will only target you if there is space for a fireball, thus all full blocks will protect you - from being targeted, because glass doesn't have good enough blast resistance. Fyreboy5 (talk) 13:21, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Sword[edit source]

If you use a sword to block a ghast fireball, would your sword lose durability? 22:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Need Verification for Ghast Hit by Own Fireball?[edit source]

I question why this needs to be verified. When you hit a ghast with a fireball, it will take the 6 damage from the impact, but there is also the explosion. Again, I question why this needs to be verified. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Fyreboy5 (talkcontribs) at 13:16, 19 February 2016 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Both statements are incorrect: the fireball does not kill the ghast no matter what, nor does it deal 6 damage to it. The fireball deals 1,000 damage if a player rebounded it to a ghast, so if the ghast was modified to have more health, it would survive. Fixed statement on page.

Dimensions?[edit source]

I know a Ghast is 5x4x5, nut I don't know what each of the numbers means. I'm assuming that they are 4 tall, but I don't know -PancakeMan77 (talk) 13:36, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Ghasts are actually 4x4x4. They just need a 5x4x5 space ti spawn in, because they spawn in the middle of the block. Fyreboy5 (talk) 13:23, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
I know that, but I am wondering what each number means. Is 5*4*5 X*Y*Z or X*Z*Y or what? -PancakeMan77 (talk) 01:24, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Spawn Distance[edit source]

This may be a bug in 0.15.10 PE-Windows 10, but Ghasts seem to ignore distance from player when spawning. Somewhere else the wiki states no mobs will spawn within 24 blocks of the player. Twice now, I've seen ghasts spawn much close than that (~12-16 blocks). Did anyone else observe this? -- 06:33, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Pocket / win 10 Sound Difference[edit source]

It has been noted that Ghast sounds have normal drop-off in Pocket edition/windows 10 edition rendering them almost silent at any range beyond melee range. Further investigation for extents of volume falloff may be needed. 10:02, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
