I've always wondered what beat a sword in a fight, for example an enchanted item. But what enchantments are on it.

So basically what I'm asking.

Sharpness V Diamond Sword vs. Sharpness V Diamond Axe

Who would win?

Why would the axe win? The only difference between the two is that the sword does a little more damage. That's it.

My posts will always have typos and that fact will always drive me crazy.

Diamond Swords do much better than Diamond Axes.

But with all the mods that most servers have ie - MCmmo, axes can do just as much damage with perks.

Axes are used for trees, not for killing mobs silly. So of course the winner is a Diamond Sword.

It would be silly to think that any kind of axe could beat a sword, unless if it could be enchanted with Fire Aspect, but if you could enchant it with Fire Aspect and use it on a tree, you'd start a forest fire.

When you don't mention any mods in your OP, it wont be obvious to people.

Of course most of us are going to assume you mean vanilla Minecraft. n__n; Especially those of us who aren't familiar with such mods. I'm not really into combat mods, personally.

That's interesting that a mod made the axe more powerful. Though in a lot of RPGs and MMORPGs I've played that's generally how it works with swords being faster and axes dealing more damage. So I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

My posts will always have typos and that fact will always drive me crazy.

It really depends. while yes, swords are the best damage dealer (for melee) in Vanilla Minecraft, you have to remember that this game leaves out the Human factor of fighting. in MCMMO an axe does more damage to armor, which can be used to strip your opponent of his protections. (worth noting here is the fact that the Protection enchantment works against you in these cases, because it turns damage into armor wear.)
What I mean by the Human factor is the fact that if you don't know how to use your weapon, a sword, it doesn't matter if you use that or an alternative, the axe... but if you're looking to cave someone's chest in, whether they're wearing armor or not, use an axe, axes are weighted on their end, and they have a bladed edge, so imagine a sledgehammer hitting you in the chest, and getting stabbed. If you're trying to take someone down with light armor, use a sword, they're better for slashing/stabbing.

Edit: also worth noting is the fact that Axes degrade twice as fast whilst using them to fight.

Cubic Chunks. That is all.

also, the axe would loose more durability when used on something other than wood..i think?

so in a loooooong fight with axe vs sword, the sword would win by default since the axe would break before the sword,and the fight would turn into a sword vs bare hands fight

Really? REALLY!? It's not a matter of opinion or fighting style. Diamond swords are better than diamond axes and always will be. Axes are tools not weapons and that will never change.

i would pick sword over axe any day. Even if had mods for it i would still pick sword. I usually pick sword over axe in any game... Just like the sword better. :-)

Haha silly. Diamond axe does as much damage as a stone sword unenchanted so diamond sword would win with ease.

Both. When I pvp i use an Axe to wreck armor and then i finish with a sword. and people who say sword does more damgage you are right but a sharp5 axe will destroy armor. which in the end, make battles shorter.

In a completely vanilla PvP situation with everything being equal (armor, armor enchants, buffs):
Sword. 1/2 heart more damage and you can parry.

Sword guy will last longer than the axe guy.

Do us a favor and say when mod your server is using, or cite the source that says axes damage armor in vanilla. thanx.

Without mods, hands down the sword, however it depends on the situation, so if you are talking about melee weapons then just the sword instead of axe, and obviously in ranged weapons, there's nothing other than the bow, between the bow and sword, the sword as well, not to mention being able to defend with the sword which is very useful also.
