      Description

      If you try to block an end crystal explosion with a shield, it'll still inflict you damage. The shield won't take any durability.

      Note: A sole end crystal explosion can kill a full enchanted netherite armor player, on hard difficulty. Exploitable on servers.

      This behavior has probably been in the game since shields began to block 100% of explosions (1.11) and has never been addressed, since this also seems to affect some other explosion types like beds or tnt.

      How to reproduce

      1. Summon or place an end crystal.
      2. Equip a shield and get in front of it.
      3. Summon an arrow 10-20 blocks above the crystal.
      4. Quickly switch to survival and block with the shield.
        →  You take explosion damage.
