Dear Mojang I have an idea that I think could benefit the players experience as well as make the game more entertaining. As y’all are aware in the game now weapon wise we have swords,pickaxes,shovels,axes, and hoes. What if y’all included weapons from the medieval times like a war hammer, a spear or some other weapons from that time.I think it would also be a good idea to have different sword types like the rapier and also be able to combine mob drops to give the weapons different effects like for example if a player combines a weapon with a fermented spider eye it would give the weapon a 10% chance to poison a player or mob and the more spider eyes you put on the weapon the more chances the weapon would be able to poison the player or mob. It would also make hunting mobs more useful then just trading there drops.

The combat in the game is already super lackluster. I don't see how adding more weapons with slight stat tweaks will change anything. That fermented spider eye example feels like enchantments and potions already accomplish.
