There’s one thing about weapons, armors and tools in Minecraft: they’re in some ways realistic as fuck. And by ‘realistic’ I mean they do fucking wear out just like everything else in this horrible life.

Kind reminder: the mod doesn’t work well with mods that add new armors and weapons to the game (e.g Too Many Items Mod ) due to some compatibility problems.
