If and whenever 2.0 officially comes out, I don't think it'll likely be some sort of magic update. Just about everything written here is total conjecture, and is only my opinion on what a magic update would be like. Also, I posted this before the screenshot with dual-wielding in it was leaked, and I think you idea is good, but when I wrote "Rare chance to freeze enemies", i meant like a 1 in 200 chance to freeze enemies. "Just freeze their weapon" would likely be like a Spell of Disarming or something akin.
Hey, people have their opinions. Besides, I'd like to see what the community thinks about a Magic Update of some sort. The poll doesn't mean "Do you think whats in this article should be in Minecraft", I only mean something similar.
Reading most of your posts in this thread, it seems like you're hopping to the other end of the field here. At first, you gave us a big post on all this magic stuff, and now you're telling us to "take this with a grain of salt" and that most of your ideas are placeholders - which I don't know if I believe...
Don't give us "placeholders", give us the real thing up front, because chances are, people won't come back to later to check if those placeholders are swapped out for the real thing... You also don't need to beat yourself up if your idea isn't supported. That doesn't always mean an idea is bad, just something people aren't comfortable with having in vanilla.
You say you think the game should have more magic, but why do you feel this way? Why implement what's basically already implemented?
The reason the post is so long is because I got carried away on my initial idea. In retrospect, my example isn't that great is it?
Besides, I think that because of the expansive example people think the specifics in the article are EXACTLY what the poll is about. The poll is about the concept of a Magic Update, but I still think something similar to Tomes and Wands should be implemented... just maybe not all the exact spells (The ones that have similar potion type effects should be removed, but I didn't have many ideas what to replace them with so I left them in.)
I gave the list so people could give their opinions, add onto or contract from what a "Magic Update" would be like. The "placeholders" statement you mentioned, is specifically towards the SPELLS LISTED, as some of the spells have preexisting parallels in Minecraft, some spells will eventually be replaced on the post when I think of something better or is posted here (With Credit to the person who posted it, of course), i.e. Wand of the Serpent.
god..Could you not get minecraft all messy? I mean too many items.. also there's probably a mod out there..thats like this :/

Yeah, that guy in the avatar is me. I'm *that* strange. It happens. Sometimes people act like that. Just go with it. I can offer help with suggestions even before you post them - NOT make your suggestions - but help you with them.
This would make a nice mod, but it would not fit with the general theme and feel of the game. If we wanted all these things in Minecraft, we would go play with Thaumcraft. This just doesn't work and would be way too much of a game changer. Minecraft is a survive-and-thrive, building sandbox, not a fantasy RPG builder like Terraria. No Support.
