    posted a message on Golden Armor/Tools: Why?
    Quote from TheMasterCaver»
    IMO, gold (and leather) armor is largely a way to give mobs armor that most players would not want to use (it would be OP if instead they wore iron and diamond just as often unless drop chances were nerfed); durability only matters for the helmet (when exposed to sunlight).

    That makes sense.

    Quote from TheMasterCaver»
    Of course, mobs were not given armor until 1.4.2 while all the current armor tiers were added in InDev so that was not the main reason they were added (not that they can't make an old item more useful, such as lapis)

    That no longer makes sense.

    posted a message on Golden Armor/Tools: Why?

    This thread was made to ask about some of the only completely useless items I have found in Minecraft:



    GOLD TOOLS!


    This stuff is completely useless for these reasons:


    • Durability. Any golden tool or armor has the worst durability in the game besides leather.
    • Obtainability. Gold is rarer than iron and only obtainable by an iron pickaxe, but anything that is made of iron is better than anything made of gold.
    • Protection. A full set of golden armor gives you the exact amount of protection as a full set of leather armor. You're better off getting the leather because it is more obtainable.

    Now, there is 1 good thing about golden tools and armor, and that is enchantability. However, if you get your gold stuff enchanted, it doesn't even matter because it will break almost immediately. What's more, you can't repair it that much because gold is very rare.


    I realize that they added the gold to make golden apples, but why golden tools and armor? They are completely useless!

    The new system isn't any more or less intense and fast paced than the old system.

    Yeah. It's much slower.

    Sure, it's a tiny bit slower.

    No. A LOT slower. We went from spamming attacks to waiting around for regen times.

    But the trade of that is that it feels a lot better, a lot more intense.

    I don't feel anything but an annoyance when I PVP in the new version.

    Attacks actually feel like you have some weight behind them. And the shield makes it so that bows are no longer by definition the best way to PvP, because players can your shot

    Bows are inaccurate and deal little damage. They were never the best way to PVP.

    Quote from Geneo»

    Some prefer to live in the past, some don't.


    What would you do it you owned Mojang? Just keep on keeping on and let it die on the vine as people move on due to boredom? As I see it, it will take years for MS to recover their investment, and they know it. Some are only thinking about today, but MS's concern is how can they keep MC viable 1-5 years from now.... and that long-term future doesn't (and shouldn't) include the java version.


    (BTW, eventually you'll have to upgrade to the Windows 10 OS).


    I said a year and a half ago that Win10 will become the flagship MC. People poo-pooed me and called me crazy. Whatever. Here's another prediction of mine: virtually everyone will move on to Win10 and quit playing the java version. Not because they have to, but because they want to.


    So you're supporting Microsoft practically forcing people to upgrade to Windows 10? I don't think anyone should call that a good thing.

    Quote from AugiteSoul»

    Oh, and I don't know costumes who can make Steve have invisible legs.


    If you try to make any of your skins invisible in any way, the game will just cover the invisible parts with black.

    I guess there was one good thing abut 1.9. It's that they made axes more powerful than swords. That is a good idea because a diamond axe is more expensive than a diamond sword both in sticks and in diamonds, so the axe should be more powerful.
