Seriously, I haven't used it much, but on this one server people use it and i can't see them at all. I think how crazy this would be on pvp servers. Its not terribly hard to make I think and provides a huge advantage or am I totally wrong. What do you all think?
It's not overpowered at all. If your invisible with no armour the only way people can see you is by the particle effects. But with no armour it's harder to kill people. With armour on though people can see you. The only way I can think of it being too powerful is by using a bow to kill someone from a distance. But you'd have to be a good shot.
Using it whit a bow and switching to fists when "walking" away is quite fun way to troll people.
But maybe making a potion to be able to see invisible things would be nice, maybe a extra effect to the night vistion potion
Thats what my first thought was when i saw the night vision potion, was a way to see invisible people. Oh well.
Off Topic: now I also think endermen just go invisible and run really fast then become visible again
If you had read the post i was quoting i was saying that i agree with him in the fact that i thought that the potion of night vision was going to be a way to counter the potion of invisibility. Also I know they can see the weapon but if you hit once then change no item in your hot bar how are they going to fight you if you can run circles around them.
1. There are bubble effects that are fairly easy to spot close up.
2. They just need to hit you once and you're dead, you need to hit them like 15 times.
3. A diamond sword suddenly appearing, swinging, then being put away is probably a lot easier to notice than you think when it's floating next to you.
What about archery? And I already know servers that are banning the potion.
If you use the invisibility without strategy, like a noob, you are SURE likely to die. But if you use the surroundings and the way your enemy acts, invisivility will become a great item. But it isn't overpowered.
