So, after reading this thread on the new Elytra item, (for some reason when reading the name of that item I am reminded of Elektra from DD, anyways...) I began wondering about other 1.9 changes that will be in the update for EMC 100%. Namely, the mending enchantment. I wasn't keeping up with the news of 1.9 after my laptop broke so when Hermitcraft Season 4 began and I saw Mending, the wheels in head began to spin. I realized that the mending enchantment will probably ruin the enchantment economy on EMC. If you watch Xisumavoid's Hermitcraft LP you might have seen how you can use haste 2 super mining at diamond level and never have to repair your pick. I feel like in the beginning people will get mending easy (use villagers in town... 1.9 villagers always have an enchanted book as second trade... and a chance of 2 more ench book trades down that line... very high chance of easy mending), and everyone will pay loads of money for this hot commodity, and then nobody will have the need for new enchantments. I cant remember a time (It has been six months....) where I have lost gear due to anything but stupidly using it without looking at the durability bar. Mending will be placed on everyone's items and the book will become cheap, all books will become cheap. This whole thread might be for nothing because I dont even know how the enchant market is right now.... but be assured that mending will take away the need for bulk enchants or repair services and whatever the enchant market has left. You own mending and you pretty much never lose your tool. Now, MA will still allow you to lose your stuff but even then the demand will be lower. You might think I have something against Mending, I dont. I think the enchantment is ingenious though overpowered. I'm sure Aikar is up to something evil and has already done something like make it so it repairs less or something, but I felt it needed to be addressed somewhat... or maybe it already has... idk.
