      Description

      Didn't find this one, so I'm reporting it.

      Apparently, if you throw a splash potion of healing on a Skeleton(and I guess it works with other mobs as well) and then, just before the Skeleton dies, switch to your sword enchanted with looting, you will get extra loot anyway without the need to last hit with your sword, which means you never lose durability and you can keep getting extra loot from mobs.

      I tried it with a bow enchanted with Flame but the mobs didn't drop any extra loot after they died from the fire.

      Don't know if it works with other methods.

      I tried it only with Minecraft 1.4.4 and on creative(no mods whatsoever), but it will probably happen with other modes and versions as well.
