When all this stuff was being added so quickly, I was on the side of people saying that Mojang needs to stop. But now that I take a step back and look at all the new stuff together and as a whole, I see that 1.4 is going to be a good update. Good work Mojang =D
People easily forget all the additions , that's the point of this whole thread . a visual compilation of all the goodies.
Oh, god. YES. The single most annoying thing about repairing is enchants go bye bye... also the fact that we will be able to rename items without using McEdit and Sir Mr. Lord Master Epic Redstoner SethBling's Methods
With how much XP is required to repair enchanted items, it looks like this is another endgame addition like the beacons. On the other hand, we can now repair items with good enchantments like looting or silk touch!
Now watch as I accidentally repair a sword with bane of arthropods...
This XP situation is getting ridiculous. We get XP for almost everything we do. Mining, smelting, breeding, killing, everything. Maybe we should for tree cutting, planting, crafting! Time to stop.
It shouldn't be a chore to get experience , but instead be something you get gradually from playing the game. With the Anvil coming you'll be able to spend up to 39 levels into combining and renaming items. I'm sure they will add a plethora of ways to spend your experience in the future.
