    Mutual exclusions make combat more interesting and fun. Frankly catch-all enchantments like Protection should be removed from survival so you "have" to choose from more mutually exclusive ones.

    If mending and infinity were compatible, there would be no need to get more arrows.  Just enchant the bow with Unbreaking III.

    I agree with this idea, and here's why:

    With the new tridents, you can have Loyalty and Mending on the same object, which, if thought through, is very similar to Infinity and Mending. You have no limit to how many times you throw the Trident. Even with the new Crossbows, some were dissapointed it couldn't get any of the Bows enchantments, including Infinity. However, it does have its own version: Piercing. Piercing allows the arrow to travel through several mobs (up to 4 with Piercing 4) and still hit the ground, able to be picked back up, essentially making for unlimited arrows, unless you happen to shoot in the direction of 5 lined-up creepers for no prticular reason or just have a mob farm.

    It is fine to buff or nervous things, just don't do it so you don't ruin the overall gameplay. If you want to bend the game to fit tournament rules there should be a gamemode called tournament where all the competition addicts can stop complaining when something isn't removed from the game, just remove it from the gamemode

    this would make bows way too op. just make a skeleton spawner. i've found 3 in my world less than 500 blocks away from spawn and i literally could not use all the arrows it makes if i stood there shooting them as it makes them.

    I agree! We cannot get to repair our bows when we got a lot of enchants to it including infinity. So if you guys say that there will be no point of gathering arrows once we get both of them, then in this case there will be no point of getting infinity if you can't even repair them... so please add this back. Though this can be a great challenge to the game I accept that, but please let us fix our bows because at some point, Unbreaking III isn't enough. Thankyou.

    I feel this should be added as the max of 6 tinkers with an anvil are a thing so at one point you cant repair it anymore. I'd recommend to have an ender chest or shulker box full of arrows and have a mending bow rather than infinity and not mending.

    This was allowed until after fireworks were added as a method of elytra propulsion, as a replacement to infinity+mending bows being the previous method of infinite propulsion in 1.11.3 (?). I think the removal is silly mostly because both were viable and balanced options, where you would have to farm and get quite a bit of gunpowder in order to make an adequate supply of fireworks, which would ultimately be the best option late-stage when you have a lot of resources, whereas infinity+mending bows were mid-game stage and free, but also lacked the safety and flexibility that firework rockets provide, with you having to shoot yourself to propel yourself (thus forcing the player to pay very close attention to their healthbar), and the propulsion technique being very linear and not allowing for sharp and quick turns like firework rockets provide.

     

    With all of the other overpowered items that can be made with the amazing enchantment that is mending, I seriously cannot fathom why Mojang has a problem with infinity/mending bows. Please add them back! We loved them.

    Guys, try fishing with Lure III rod. I caught several bows with mending and infinity on them. Power and mending too. In few days, fishing ones in a while in the night I cought like 5 enchanted bows + rods + enchanted books with all kinds of enchantments...

    That's too OP. I think Infinity should be nerfed all together and work like Unbreaking, but for arrows. It should also work for crossbows. It should be mutually exclusive with Loyalty.

    Mojang allowed all the different types of protection to be added together but still doesnt allow mending and infinity on a bow. Mojang, please allow us to do this

    this shouldnt be possible since that gives you unlimited uses on your bow which in my opinion is too op.

    Making it possible for infinity and mending to be on the same bow can make it so that you dont need to carry as many arrows as you would need without it and not worrying about it breaking since it has mending

    Mojang thinks that Mending and Infinite is OP however they did not think of our reaction... A simple solution to please both Mojang and Players is simple have a limit on how many enchants you can have on your bow! let Infinite and Mending be accessible however the price should be to have a limit on how many enchants you can have on a bow!

    Bows already break fast even when mine has unbreaking III. And it costs 33 levels to repair it. This would make this process more simple and less painful.
