Minecraft: "All Excited"
Posted: Wednesday March 9th, 2016 by

Since my Minecraft home is a tiny island that I'm having to slowly grow outward to make room for my various farming and animal husbandry needs, I seem to spend a LOT of time underwater, building up the base for my island and trying not to drown. Having an Aqua Affinity helm helped, but not by a whole lot.

Well, after the 1.9 update, I was removing a land bridge and chasing the dirt blocks to the ocean floor. When you're growing an island out in the middle of nowhere, every resource block counts. Hitting a particularly deep bit, I ran out of bubbles on the way back up and noticed that the damage I was taking was being immediately/fully repaired. Now, I haven't done a lot of testing to see how the rest of my armor might be impacting it. But, I certainly wasn't able to survive indefinitely underwater before. So, I'm just going to go ahead and credit the Aqua Affinity helm.

Just tested a Gold Helm with Protection III and no Aqua Affinity. Didn't drown. (Thanks Awyldknght for the clarification on Aqua Affinity!) Changed the text in the comic to reflect this.

As far as being a nerd... yeah, I'll take that.

Thanks to everyone that dropped in to watch me stream last night. And a special thanks to Yarzori for suggesting a Weighted Companion Cube as the "nerdiest cosplay a nerd could ever nerd".
