  1. I just can't seem to get my head around this so I'd like to know what you guys think. Why on earth was this added? What makes sense about making books enchant-able and allowing them to enchant tools? It just makes no sense D:

  2. It saves on diamonds, you don't have to waste 10 diamonds getting the sword you want

  3. What josh posh said!
  4. I was hoping it would be something kinda like in Terraria where you get a book with a spell and can shoot fireballs or something. Would have been cool. But I haven't tried the books yet.

  5. I really don't see any point in this either.

  6. It's just the point of knowing nothing to add, and then add crap. Or stuff that doesn't really add anything.
  7. Personally I think adding random crap is quite good. Because even if I don't need it when it comes out, it might open up something completely new and fun in the future. Plus, nothing wrong with having more stuff as long as it's not sacrificing anything :p
    Ohh.. how does it work?

    Basically I wanna know how this is gonna help me out xD

  8. You enchant the book, so say you want Protection 4 legs, you don't have to waste 7 diamonds a pop to find out you've got projectile protection.
  9. its basically so you don't have to waste a load of diamonds or iron to get the enchantment you want and you can enchant anything you want but that might be removed soon
  10. They also let you enchant shears with silk touch, letting you harvest cobwebs. (you have to enchant the book first, then use the book with the shears).
