Lead tool is a tool in Minecraft which us also sometimes called as Leashes. The tool is used to tame and lead the passive mobs. This tool is renewable as well as stackable in piles of 64.
Minecraft Lead Tool Recipe:
The tool can be crafted by using String and Slime ball. Currently, there is no natural way of getting this tool.
Minecraft Lead Tool Usage:
Leads can be used to lead mobs which means that by using a lead on any mob, the player will be able to control it. The lead will tie to the mob and the player can take it with him. Bats and Players are two mobs that cannot be mead by a leash. The player can tie the mob to a fencepost. More than one mob can be tied this way with a visible know. The tied mob will only be able to move within 5 blocks of the fencepost.
The leash can also break in one of the following ways:
- By using the lead on the mob again.
- By removing the fence
- Hitting the knot with arrows
- If the mob goes with the player into a Nether portal.
If the lead or leash breaks, it drops as itself. Just like Anvil Tool which drops as itself when used on a fence or road.
The player has scored an achievement once they lead a mob with 5 Llamas.
Leashes were introduced with official release. In the following updates, few changes were made such as the villagers could not be leashed anymore. After that, there was sound effect introduced for the usage of leash on a mob.
The players faced a few issues.
- The leashed disappeared after death.
- When the game loads, horses can detach from the leash.
- The leads break and drop.
- There was a bug which made animals jump on slime blocks when on leash.
