You should be able to use deployers with mining lasers in them too. It works for collecting blaze rods.

 

Blazes will drop their rods when killed by anything. Wither Skele Skulls are a "special drop", like carrots from killing zombies, which can only drop if the mob is killed by a player (or by a turtle, which the game treats like a player in this case).

Quote from minecraftwiki: "When killed by a player, a Blaze may drop a Blaze Rod. Blazes which are killed by other causes will not drop any Blaze Rods, making fully automated farms impossible. The mechanic here is the same as for Experience, i.e. the player does not need to deliver the final blow."

 

Using for example a tesla coil blazes do not drop blaze rods, however they do when shot by a deployer/laser.

The game seems to treat deployers as players too, and blazes actually attack them.

Well that's odd, because my drop-blazes-into-water farm gets a bunch of blaze rods.

Really?  I don't get any at all doing that.

I tried a few different approaches, and the only one that worked was the deployer/laser.

Maybe a modpack difference? I know direwolf also make a water based blaze trap with soul shards. Maybe something in mindcrack disables that somehow?
