    I think a lot of people here don't get the point of the thread.

    You don't have to craft an absurd "fact" about the game... you have to write down something that seems perfectly legit for a new player, somethign that makes them go "Well, it's only natural it goes that way".

    I feel that polar_bearr and I gave Bad Tips according to the "rules". Others too of course.

    I thnk it is a common strategy to stay safe until you've crafted yourself an iron armor + sword.

    Surprised nobody mentioned the carrot on a stick so far. The only use of a carrot on a stick is to control a pig while riding it, which has been useless ever since horses came out. At least poisonous potatoes don't cost anything to make and they can be eaten in a worst case scenario. The carrot on a stick however, can not be eaten at all despite literally being a carrot. You also have to craft it, meaning you have to waste other materials on it. And last but not least, it has a durability, meaning you need multiple of these if you want to travel a decent distance. The durability also decreases very fast, faster than it should do. Why does it even have a durability anyways, a carrot doesn't have a durability and you are not fishing with it so the durability shouldn't decrease in that way either. I guess you could say the pig eats the carrot but you also lose the fishing rod when it's durability reaches 0. Does that mean the pig also ate the fishing rod or something.


    tl;dr, the carrot on a stick is useless.


    Not as useless as the potato, for two reasons:
    1- While being a terrible way to get to places, you can always use pigs if you lack horses or enough iron for a Rail. You are assuming that horses are right next biome, but if you can get a full deserts/plains world, you could get lost in countless taigas too.
    2- It is needed for an achievement, which is in-game and thus qualifies for having a purpose.

    If you throw 10 blocks of Coal into lava, it will spew a Diamond back at you.

    Diamonds can be mined with any tools, but not bare-handed.

    Obsidian can be mined with at least an Iron Pick with Efficiency II.

    Spiders are always aggressive.

    Have you not mentioned the cauldron?


    The Cauldron is the only way to place water in the Nether legit, and can be used to stop burning. That's far from useless.



    I'd
    say clownfish. They're pretty crappy for a food source, so the only
    thing they're useful for are taming ocelots. But I doubt you would use
    them for that, they're so rare that you might as well just use regular
    raw fish.



    You mentioned at least two uses that can be made out of Clownfish; I'd say this qualifies it as a not-so-meaningless item.

    I think Chameleonred5 did a very good job at explaining why Poisonous Potatoes are the worst of the worst.

    By the way, I think you need to make a new world to see the new 1.9 stuff for the End. Not sure though.


    I don't think they'd be so inconsiderate as to cut 1.8 worlds out of the "race". If anything, I could delete my End dimension for that world... but that would really be a bummer.

    I feared as much...

    It now takes me 8 hits to kill a Wither Skeleton with a Sharpness-enchanted Iron Sword... gonna be a pain venturing around the Nether to find dem Ghasts. Luckily I got an Infinity book.

    Hi everyone.


    So I went to the End to see the new stuff added in 1.9 but everything remained unchanged. So I fugred I need to respawn the dragon, defeat it, and wait for the floating portal to the outskirts to spawn.

    Am I able to mine Ender Crystals, or do I have to go get myself Ender Pearls? I'm asking before I go try and possibly blow up.

    Have you been saving your world progress constantly?

    My main world is nowhere near the best, but I save it on my desktop and on an external device after every game session is over; I don't want surprises.

    If you don't have any means to recover your save file, I don't know what could be done.

    I believe it was either the 24th or 25th of this month, forgot which.

    24th seems more likely since it's Wednesday.


    Wat! Really?
    Didn't see that coming. I kept looking for the date throughout these last months, then eventually gave up as I couldn't find anything. I just hope my world will remain in one piece.

    Pick your favorite. Mine is one emerald for five apples.


    Would an emerald for a cake be considered a bad trade?

    The worst is always the smith trade where you have to hand over 3-4 diamonds for a single emerald.


    I think it's a tie with that, the sheperd's wools, and all of the fletcher's offers.
