It's funny, I was planning on starting a new world when 1.13 dropped, not importing this one. But I'm having a lot of fun testing things in my old world, and now I'm thinking it's not time for this world to end. I'll still start a new world, but the 1.8 world will live on in 1.13 as well, and the unbreakable iron farm will continue to sacrifice helpless golems through yet another update. One wonders how many of the noble village protectors have fallen in the merciless foundry. It boggles the mind.
Haha! While I don't consider myself a "good guy" in my MC world, I've always thought that I'm not so evil as to have an iron farm.
It's good to hear you'll keep your old world going! I was hoping you'd change your mind and not abandon it.
I haven't fiddled with the trident yet. With 1.1 attack speed and 10 damage, it seems slower and stronger than the sword, but not quite as slow or strong as an axe, yet it can be thrown. I'll withhold my judgement until after having tested it thoroughly for myself, but I can't imagine it being more effective than a sword and off-hand bow. Perhaps it's mainly meant to fight water mobs?
