[Premature suggestion] Voter tools & the 1.9 update

  1. Hi gang!

    I assume we're all familiar with the voter items, right? If not: the voter tools are what gives the voters their power. It's an energy field created by all playing things which surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the Empire together.. wait a second; Sorry, wrong quote :D

    As of right now we have iron and diamond.

    First off: In 1.9 a new enchantment will be introduced called mending. Items which have this enchantment will get automatically repaired when players obtain XP, thus creating options which allow players to have almost infinite OP gear. I could imagine that this could also affect the popularity of the voter tools and that got me thinking.

    So my suggestion: golden voting tools (sword, pickaxe, axe, and shovel) which will have Mending instead of Unbreaking. The soulbound and final attributes would remain. This will put these at more risk of getting damaged and/or destroyed.

    In return the other enchants could be raised a little. My ideas:

    Pickaxe gets Efficiency II instead of I.
    Shovel gets Efficiency II instead of I.
    Sword gets Sharpness II instead of I.
    Axe gets Efficiency II instead of I.

    Maybe level III could be an option to consider too.

    Motivation: they get better stats but with more risks attached to them, because if you're not careful you could wear 'm out completely. But the appeal still sits with the soulbound enchant: you can't lose 'm "just like that" either. Getting blown up by a creeper still wouldn't be too much of a problem, but you'd have to be more careful with their use.

  2. *shivers* but what about suicide Momo battles?
  3. Due to the reasoning behind voters tools, we wouldn't want them to ever have a chance to run out because you can't just 'get' another.
  4. Krysyy has a point.

    I think a Mending gear promotional set would be great for the 1.9 update.
  5. Wait this means I can make a Silk 1, Eff 5, Unb 3 Mending diamond pick? :eek: I.... so joy!

  6. How about voter's elytra?
    Since the only enchantments that elytra can have are unbreaking and mending, maybe give it like protection 4 or something?
  7. Voters gear is valuable because it cannot be lost, like Krysyy said, but a voters elytra would be cool if it was soulbound and unbreakable.
