As you know we will soon be updating to Minecraft 1.9. While there several changes the biggest change is combat. In order to make full use of these changes Empire Minecraft will no longer restrict player on player combat to the PvP arenas but allow it throughout the wilderness (both frontier and waste). Town will retain the PvP restrictions. We know that some players would rather not participate in PvP and have devised the White Feather. This item whilst carried in the off hand will prevent any player from striking you. You will also automatically have your difficulty set to 1. To help PvPers determine who is unwilling to fight players carrying a white feather will make the chicken sound.Can I PvP with lava buckets or flint and steel?No, using these methods of PvP is cowardly.How do I get a white feather?Combine a normal feather with yellow dye.Will I lose my items?Yes, to the victor goes the spoils of war.Even soulbound items?Of course not, unless they have soulbreaker item.Soulbreaker, what is that?This will be a new enchantment that can be bought as an enchanted book for $10 and applied to any weapon. This overrides the soulbound effect of you defeated foes items.But I don't want to lose my things.Either get better at PvP or buy Soulbound+ enchanted books.Soulbound+ is that a better soulbound?Yes it is. It acts just like soulbound but can't be overridden by Soulbreaker weapons.How do I get Soulbound+?All current items with Soulbound will be upgraded to Soulbound+.So what will have soulbound?Soulbound will be a new player applied enchant that will be available to be bought as an enchanted book for $5.Enough questions. I hope you will enjoy new an improved combat on EMC.
