when i mine i always hold shift (sneak) its a habbit now. i may walk slower while mining through my strip mine operations but atleast if im not paying attention to the floor i wont fall through any holes or lava pools. :D

You're safe if you just only mine the block farthest away from you (so about 3 blocks away), leaves most people plenty of reaction time to avoid lava.

Also, the question of this thread was never really answered xD

#45199 Basically, never count on getting a specific item from a boss. It isn't likely, and Murphy will keep it from you. If there's something like an XP share you want, just keep fighting bosses as normal and hoard your drops. There's really not much point in boss hunting for anything specific. Boss hunt for EVERYTHING instead.

#45223 To answer the main question they are fairly rare. I have gotten 2 so far but they were like a aluminum and iron hammers. No luck with diamond hammers. Good luck.
