Hi guys ! Long time no see !
PuraVidaServer, you evil beast ! You started a new world from scratch without me... again !!!
Weren't we supposed to play on a new server world "From Day 1" together ?
As for wasting 18 mithril on trying to enchant stuff...
I agree that there should be *some* form of player-control for enchanting stuff.
Maybe "rare magical reagents" (diamonds?) in a new enchanting table item slot?
(basically anything to make you mine and explore the map, instead of shearing sheep while safe at home.)
Still, no need to be "cheaty", because there is a built-in way to do it: Disenchant the item !
With your 200+ sheep "wool factory", the bottleneck is the metal, much more than the XPs.
Also, Vampiric is, hands down, THE BEST enchantment.
Very rare to get, but priceless. Especially combined with Sharpness.
With EVERY strike you make, gain back a fraction of the damage you dealt.
A small fraction, but a very non-negligible fraction.
From nearly dead, kill off 4 or 5 enemies and you're now back to full.
Alternate way to heal relatively fast: Every 10 seconds lying in a bed (doing nothing) heals back 1 hp.
I use that time to go make myself a sandwich or something.
So, with only the Ender Dragon and the Wither left to "do", and the Adamantine stage to "just begun"
(and not enough mithril for everything for 2 players yet), me and my nephew we kinda stopped that world.
He has to return to intensive studies, while also working. So there's that.
Also, I kinda used the "item duplication" trick to turn a single adamantine ingot and coins into tons of blocks and XPs.
So that kinda felt "ok, big party now, game over!"
So I started a few solo games.
Currently in a swamp spawn with 2 with huts nearby (not all that near, I'm not cursed lol),
with plains, jungle, forest, and ocean, not all that far off.
Lemme tell you, farming in a swamp is a *real* challenge.
Even if you get lucky enough to have a spot without a constant stream of green slimes
(which destroy biological stuff merely by sliming over them... let's say, your crops),
swamps have TONS of blight. At least 4 times more than the Plains biome.
And when it spreads in swamps, it spread easily to 2 blocks away.
So you instead have to put your crops on rows 1 and 4, else you get twice as much blight since it
skips to both rows. So, you never get the full "fully surrounded by farmland" speed bonus.
Even then it still blights tons. I still get a positive farming output, sure, but only about half as much as expected.
Was planning to go attack the witches for their veggies,
but I got lucky and got both potato and carrot from zombies.
Still living in a "two entrances" near-surface natural tunnel near spawn,
with 2 other secondary bases around, and one huge mining complex a bit away.
I am strongly thinking about moving out to the Plains, as soon as I find a good spot with a big mining network.
In any case, I'm ready to start a 2-player world whenever you are !
