    This is an anarchy. Think of it this way: Anyone who has worked oh so hard for a set of prot IV. All he needs is a helmet. 1.8 comes out and he suddenly realizes that all of his other noob friends have prot IV. You think, what the hell is this. My friends all have prot IV and I dont. The thing you have worked so hard for becomes so esay. Jealousy and confusion. Might as well add prot V (5) and sharpness X (10) if all this prot IV talk is true. Prot IV and op items everywhere. LOA will become a op, dried up, same old same old server in a couple months.

    I hear you Gooby, but as someone with multiple sets of ProtIV, I'm willing to try the new enchant system because I think it could be better for the server as a whole. I grinded my first 3 sets of prot on a zombie grinder, so I actually worked to get my stuff. But what does that stuff matter if there's so few people to play with?

    "Aw man, noobs got all this prot, and I still don't have a helmet. How can I beat them when they have finished sets and I'm still missing my helmet?"

    Those with xp-gathering infrastructure will always be at an advantage compared to those who don't. When an update makes things easier, it makes them easier for everyone. Hard work still puts some people ahead of others, but an update like this makes it a balanced level of ahead. When the road to the top gets shorter/faster, you don't stop being at the top. Unless you're afraid you can't stand up to your new competition...

    To everyone saying that prot 4 will become meaningless if everyone has it: You realize it still costs a decent amount of diamonds to craft that shit right? No matter how easy the enchants are nobody wants to throw out 24 diamonds.

    Also I love how anytime someone mentions prot 4 it turns into a pissing contest over who has the most sets. We are all impressed by your epeens, but put it back in your epants so we can actually talk about the thread topic plz.

    And reading these posts, I guess I changed my views a little. The new update system seems pretty cool. I don't play single player much so it would be a shame to miss out on this cool addition.
    Edit: Perhaps someone might make a pole, to see what the majority rules?

    Bump.


    But seriously, I think this topic should be revisited. We never got to hear what the admins think about this, and and I think it should be Raged about discussed further.

    It's one of LOA's classic "The server is going to die if we don't do ____________" discussions.

    I say we keep up with Mojang's updates and the vanilla minecraft flow. I mean, anarchy has a reputation to uphold for being original, right?

    Vanilla MC still used the level 30 enchant system when LOA switched to level 50 (I think)

    We just wait for the gods above to inspect the new system.

    Ok sorry to bump an old topic but I want to know what the final say is as 1.8 draws nearer, Will legion servers update to 1.8 enchanting or will legion server not upgrade to 1.8 enchanting?

    If LOA still uses the 1.5 system after 1.8 comes out, it will need to stop advertising a vanilla gameplay, and just call it what it is right now: Not fucking vanilla. Crying your little eyes out that "noobs" will suddenly be packing prot4 gear is a prime example that your a shitty gamer. There is other ways to make your combat better in minecraft. Potions, spash potions, weapons and using them effectively, ender pearls and using them like a ninja!
    Minecraft is more than a fucking whiny bitch running around in prot4 diamond gear. LOA has forgotten this.

    i also agree with Torguamada. Forgive me if im repeating this, but Legion of Anarchy has a reputation to uphold. As long as i know that we will update to current vanilla, i am not worried.

    I think that the 30 level enchanting system is okay-ish. What I really wish Mojang would do is make you actually have to find an enchanted item in the game world and study it before being able to use said enchant. For example, if you, say, find an enchanted book for sharpness in a dungeon, you could bring it back to your enchanting table and add sharpness to the list of enchantments that could potentially be applied to a weapon when you enchant it. That way enchanting your gear becomes more of a progression rather than "Set up a mob grinder and sit in front of it for three hours." After all, the new ways to get XP were designed to promote mining and exploration, so why not make enchanting itself tie in with these goals?

    I've heard talk. Is this confirmed for not happening? Can we get any admin input in this 3-page-long discussion about server gameplay?

    I would like to know this as well. Even if we don't update, will parts of the new system be incorporated, such as requiring lapis, knowing which enchantment we will get, etc.?
