Looting III does not affect Salmon and Fish mobs. This is inconsistent with the standard behaviour of Looting with the standard drop table not being multiplied. In particular, a chicken is affected by looting, which like fish drops a single item representing itself (raw chicken) when slain using a weapon not enchanted with looting, yet drops multiple when using a weapon enchanted with looting. Using an already established mob that has drop mechanics near identical to fish with the exception of a second drop, fish should behave the same, but do not.
- Locate, or for the purposes of testing, produce a salmon or cod alongside a chicken as a control variable.
- Using a sword enchanted with Looting I, II, or III, slay both creatures and retrieve their drops.
- Note the differences in drops over multiple tests. One fish will produce one fish consistently, but one chicken may produce from 1-4 whole raw chickens (alongside feathers, which are irrelevant for testing purposes).
Note: The attached image is a test done using a looting 3 diamond sword against four salmon and four chickens.
