Finally, players will now have to spawn in an endermite using ender pearls and place it in a minecart as shown in the picture. Once that is complete, players will can remove the torches on the cobblestone part of the platform and Enderman will spawn in and run into the grinding area as they are hostile towards Endermites. Players must also make sure that the endermite is protected because sometimes the Enderman can kill it if it isn't positioned correctly.
