    Tomorrow is the start of a Hermitcraft stream weekend! My episode also got pushed back to tomorrow because of this snapshot :-) livestream.hermitcraft.com

      I think jeb meant 1/8 by the arrow effect time is 1 min rather than a potion with increased time being 8 min

    • Wouter Van Bruchem
      Wouter Van Bruchem

      The 1/8 instant effect change is as follows: Tipped arrows will have 1/8 of the duration of the potion they've been crafted with, but since instant effects such as healing and harming don't have a duration, they will now have 1/8 the power of the potion. So an arrow with healing 1 will heal half a heart instead of 4.

  • PounceLyGrin

    I have come to terms and have accepted this changes in the combat system, one thing though is the bow fatigue it needs to kick in or start after 5-6 seconds I like these changes though it will take quite a long time to get use to and even then I'll just switch to older versions whenever I feel the need to pvp when I get bored of it, just switch versions vice versa when I feel like it

    With everyone saying things about 1.8 pvpers will come back. Personally, if you don't switch back to normal, they won't. I left the pvp phase because of the updates. Also, the no eating during getting hit is stupid af.

    I really hope they do not change the bow fatigue. I think it is pretty well balanced and doesn’t take too long to be considered not worth having

  • Klassisk

    ughhh no bow fatigue bleh gross if it's for instant harming arrows or anything like that I'd understand but for just a regular bow it'll be super annoying that and 1.7/1.8 pvp players eat whilst running away on top of that I don't think these updates are gonna bring the pvp community to later versions I apologize but really I can't see it they're trying to put the community back together but while doing so making questionable changes for pvp players.

    Lapis Septo Flufftail

    There are 4 ways of acquiring tipped arrows in java edition as of right now, none of them are worth the effort And then they NERF two of them? As for the methods if anyone is curious: -Mob farm in a snowy biome for strays so you can get slowness arrows -Trading with multiple fletchers to max level to maybe get a tipped arrow trade, which will likely not be the one you want -Fighting the main boss of the game (no i don't care how easy it is for some people, it's still the main boss) -Exploiting an often forgotten feature creepers have, because nobody is gonna capture creepers in mass and throw potions at them to get the lingering effect cloud to shoot a couple arrows into

  • Foxcatgaming 2

    what's bow fatigue? does that mean the arrows will start randomizing where they'll go or what?

    • Dangit Army
      Dangit Army

      After 3 seconds, if you don’t shoot, the bow will start to shake and the more time you don’t release the arrow, the more random the shot will be

    I haven’t been keeping track lately. Is saturation back or will it still be removed?


    So using gapple on combat is harder now? I dunno...

  • Julian

    Removing the saturation bar completely is still pretty annoying :/

  • Ethan Michael
    Ethan Michael

    Personally I am hating everything about this combat update so far

  • NickMortuus

    I need more of these videos

  • NotSoAnonymous

    6:42 I think what was meant is that the full duration of the effect on arrows is shorter/weaker. For example a normal drinkable Speed Potion is way longer then a splash Speed Potion, and I guess it is with the arrows too. And transfered to instant heal and damage: arrows heal less then a drinkable potion. (Because the effect can't be shorter if it's instant, right?) It doesn't have nothing to do with which power you're shooting the arrow.

  • Christopher Ganiere
    Christopher Ganiere

    Regarding the potion effects on arrows I believe he meant that the effect of an instant healing arrow would be one eighth of the effect of a normal arrow much like the fire resistance arrow is 1 minutes instead of eight.

    bow fatigue is pretty horrible imo

  • Cave Goblin

    They should add just one more thing, a dashing enchantment that allows you to be propelled a certain amount of blocks per level at the cost of durability kinda like sould speed but only for a second and you can use it anywhere this would be useful for more maneuvering in combat it would have three levels and be applied to boots the first level would allow two blocks of dashing the second three and the third four blocks and youd be able to dash every direction left right and in front of you but not behind you. Whatchu think?

  • Ash

    I dislike eating interruption for the sole sake of fire resistance, it makes it impossible to chug one while your on fire or in lava which decreases their utility a lot

    • Ash

      @beastyboi ah ok, thats fine then

  • Some random guy
    Some random guy

    My main concern with removing saturation was the removal of more strategic play, with faster fights dumbing down to who can click better. Plus it ignores the PvE minecraft players that are also affected by this. I think potions can become a substitute, but 1 second 12-hp potions are too strong, even with interrupt

    • Some random guy
      Some random guy

      i must have missed a few combat updates huh. saturation must have had a few more changes since ive seen it last. as for minecraft updates, especially since the aquatic update, minecraft updates have been a lot more specified, sort of like mods, taking it in a different direction from the minecraft experience from older updates. im sure if people noticed a problem in this, they have already personally reverted to older versions, like 1.12.2 or 1.7.10. for everyone else though, is there really a problem if they're enjoying the updates?

    • A_legend_M ع_م_م
      A_legend_M ع_م_م

      It doesn't ignore pve players. Saturation was removed for healing, it still exists. Your golden carrots are still useful. Also, screw pve players, they literally accept anything from mojang like 6 year Olds. They don't give a damn about anything, they will always update

  • ParzivalPlays

    not happy about the bow or food changes...

  • Aidv

    The thing about the arrow effects being 1/8 of the full effect means that the effect you get from a single tipped arrow is equal to 1/8 the effect of the same type of potion

  • MicroManage

    Lel they added back the features I liked. Everyone thank me for this update.

  • Catstr

    Why did a suggestion for a video called "Story" come up but the video was unavailable?

    community: almost all potions are so useless in pvp omg mojang: how you like that?

  • Hexeris

    I love the fact, that mojang is listening to their fanbase. This combat update will probably satisfy a lot of players, who are still playing 1.8, but they have to fix the server performance issues in order for this to be actually usable (because let's face it, this update is more for the multiplayer players, rather than the singleplayer ones).

  • Megan

    Bow fatigue is gonna make mc champs very interesting one day...

    • Tennessine

      I was thinking the same thing, but I doubt the accuracy decrease would really matter when you're that close to your target. Besides, I would like to see more fast-paced Dodgeball rounds. It would certainly be very interesting.

  • Samuel Rodriguez
    Samuel Rodriguez

    I don't like the eating interruption. Especially with piglins added. Imagine you are being cornered by a bunch of mobs and you have 2 hearts left. It would only get you so far to use your sword with sweeping edge or your shield.

    • A_legend_M ع_م_م
      A_legend_M ع_م_م

      Ever heard of s-tapping or strafing? Pve players don't know how to kill mobs, they just stand there, and swing without moving. Ofcourse it will suck, learn combat

    • Tennessine

      "Imagine you are being cornered by a bunch of mobs and you have 2 hearts left." Don't get into that situation. You shouldn't be getting into that situation in the first place.

  • Navythechase

    just add a gamerule like /gamerule legacycombat true so people who like 1.8.9 and under pvp can stop complaining.

  • Red Boi

    Are these changes going to be added on Bedrock too?

  • Saborhagen

    All I want is for the player not to be able to spam attack. Makes no sense anyway. Your attack speed should be locked to your weapon's attack speed. Every time I make custom content I always have to yell at players to stop spam attacking because they're not doing any damage.

  • Galactic_ninja_

    Bruh the bows are trash now sniping is such a big part of the combat and now its non existant. Something tells me that this combat update is gonna be a repeat of the first combat update.

  • sansana

    if they're trying to find something that works for computer and console players, then why dont they ever give bedrock edition a combat beta

    • Tennessine

      Bedrock doesn't have a snapshot feature IIRC. And also once they've got a somewhat coherent combat system they'll probably find a way to test it for bedrock as well. Working on Java is probably easier and also more convenient because the majority of the PvP community (heck, the majority of all players) play on Java.

    why can't they just bring back 1.8 mechanics? No one wants this stupid, complex and annoying mechanics that just ruin a lot of aspects of the game.

    • Wow Potato
      Wow Potato

      They maybe want to adding new weapons

  • Tjmanswer

    Does cleaving replace sharpness on axes or can you have both?

  • DetectiveMcGee

    Seeing stacked potions make me scared

  • CabnentBoi

    I wish they added a new weapon: a dagger. I feel like this should work just like swords did before version 1.9, but it would have a little less reach and damage.

    • CabnentBoi

      Emerald One That’s what I was thinking. Plus, you could always use commands to increase the damage by putting a high level of sharpness on the dagger. It is also possible that they could add an enchantment that increases the reach of a weapon by half a block, although you can only put one (maybe two) level of it on a weapon, and you can’t stack it with any damage enchantments such as sharpness, cleaving, smite, etc. You could have both enchantments, but only with commands).

    • Emerald One
      Emerald One

      That is something that would actually move to reunite the two PvP groups. The old use daggers and it could deal stupid damage, but at the same time, axes would be dealing half your hp per hit. A good mix between old and new. Spam clicking, and timed attacks

    • Brynboyharns12

      True but it has a big reach.

    • 《《 Senisgo 》》
      《《 Senisgo 》》

      @Brynboyharns12 but we have hoes its fast and low deamage xd like a dagger

    • Brynboyharns12

      In my opinion, that could be a cool addition. It's a fast but low Damage weapon.

    So potions are still not stackable ha

  • JonnesTT

    I really like that, potions were always too slow, and having a reason to take the mostly higher effort liquid foods is a really cool idea.

  • Mac Guy3135
    Mac Guy3135

    Strength should negate bow fatigue as that will be immensely annoying. Also at least add power to crossbows which are at the moment a joke of a weapon.

  • Cidazzle

      They arent listening to u if u talk like this Insult if u want but they never gonna listen to your type of people

    • Tennessine

      @ShelloHD what do you mean by "poor pvp servers"?

    • ShelloHD

      @Tennessine i hope they find that "good balance", i asked it for the sake of poor pvp servers, otherwise any m necraft version without mods, is unplayable shit. just as you are :)

    • Tennessine

      they are literally trying to find a good balance to please you. if you're gonna keep being a whiny baby then just stay in your own version.

  • Unus Anus
    Unus Anus

    I still really don’t like the healing from saturation being gone, mainly because without it speed running will completely phase out, just look at dream, a high skill speed runner, and how much he is at half a heart WITH healing saturation, it should just take longer to eat to allow speedrunning to continue to be fun
