      Description

      If you try to block an end crystal explosion while using a shield, it'll still inflict you damage. Also, the shield doesn't take any durability.

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

      This behavior has been in the game for quite some time, probably since 1.10.

      How to reproduce

      1. Summon or place an end crystal and spawn a skeleton close to it.
      2. Equip a shield and get in front of the end crystal, facing the skeleton (make sure the end crystal is between you and the skeleton).
      3. Set your gamemode into survival and block with the shield.
      4. The skeleton tries to shoot you, but the arrow hits the end crystal instead.
        →  The explosion ignores the shield and you take damage.

       

      First report, sorry for any inconvenience.
