      Description

      Phantoms deal less damage in 1.14+ than in 1.13.2. This damage change does not appear to be mentioned in any changelogs and therefore could be unintentional.

       

      Difficulty Damage in 1.13.2 Damage in 1.14+
      Easy 4 (2 hearts) 2 (1 heart)
      Normal 6 (3 hearts) 2 (1 heart)
      Hard 9 (4.5 hearts) 3 (1.5 hearts)

      To reproduce

      • Summon a phantom with a spawn egg or /summon phantom
      • Switch to /gamemode survival while not wearing any armor or under the Resistance effect
      • Observe the damage done by the attacking phantom

      Original description

      I was messing around on Minecraft and decided to spawn in a load of phantoms (at ground level). I was playing on Normal mode, and I had no armour or anything fancy. I switched into survival and decided to see if I could fistfight 10 phantoms at once with no armour. Upon beig swarmed, I quickly noticed that each phantom bite did only 1 heart of damage. On normal I swear they are supposed to do 3 with no armour, according to the Wikia?

      The Wikia says they still do 3 hearts on normal mode, and there's no mention of a phantom nerf in any patch notes, so I assume this is a bug.
