FROM: BundyGuy
SUBJECT: Enchanting Table Ideas

Hello Jonny, and Joel,

I was listening to the enchanting table discussion in Episode 287 about all the different ways Mojang could make enchanting tables more viable. I really enjoyed the discussion, and it gave me an idea of my own.

What if when using the enchanting table, it had the option to slot in an enchanted book? This would queue up the same enchanted book, and price in the enchanting table. It would mean you would only need to randomly hunt for enchantments one time, and then you would be able to use it to queue up the same enchantment whenever you want it, as long as the enchanting table was sufficiently buffed by bookshelves. This idea is similar to copying banners. You still have the random hunt for an enchantment at first, but once you had them, it would be guaranteed. For multi-level enchantments you could purchase lower level enchantments to combine together to get the max enchantment to use as your “template”, and make it less random.

BundyGuy did not die because this armor was fully enchanted with protection.

SUBJECT: Affecting The Beacon

Howdy Joel, and Pix,

Four potions with new effects have been added to Minecraft in the decade since beacons were first introduced, and the recent snapshot has added even more. Plus, lingering potions, and tipped arrows now compete with beacons in offering long-range, and area effects. 

Do you think it’s time for Mojang to add more effect options for beacons, or even change them to “broadcast” any potion the player can obtain? 

I definitely think an Invisibility, Slow Falling, or Wind Charged beacon would open up some new opportunities.

Lazu God died from a dedicated Potion of Harming beacon.

Thank you to our Patrons!
