I never thought the day would come, but I finally reached a full stack of diamond blocks. I don't know what I will do with all these diamonds, but I feel as if the itch that is my mining urge has finally been scratched . . .
Hah, no thanks! Even in regular diamond form, it would take 4x as many times as I have now to do so. Doing it all in diamond blocks . . . well, it took me about 5 months to get this many. Thats decades we are talking about.
First time I've ever posted on this site. I've gotten 64 blocks once before but my computer died. I decided yesterday to go for it and I'm now at 20 blocks (about 10 a day). If I do it right I can get 64 diamond an hour.
*Enchanting helps a TON!
EDIT: I've reached over 70 now, beating my old record. This doesn't include the 30-something diamond picks I've used, 4 sets of armor, and other tools I'm going for 164 so I can make a beacon because I used all of my iron.
I believe I have about 55 Diamond blocks on my second most recent survival world. My current world is Inferno Mines, where I have about 40 blocks worth, if you include the lengthening effect of enchantments (The Crate Booper is 300 diamonds worth of axe)
