    The solution is bad for players who play survival mode without cheats.

    I don’t believe it should be outright removed however it should be tweaked. Mending is important, it eliminates the problem all together but it’s all based up to chance. I’ve been fishing every day for about a week now and I haven’t gotten a mending book. Perhaps allow for an upgraded anvil which allows you to take the cap higher or infinitely. Make it expensive, 7 netherite ingots organized in an I shape. Endgame seems boring because often times you are unable to fix your equipment, my netherite boots were the first to break. They have every enchantment beside mending for boots and when it game time to repair I can no longer do so. In an endgame where I can’t max out seems un fun. Your either hopelessly fishing for mending or not doing anything altogether. Another idea I like is removing the repair growth costs, make it cap at 40 each time you repair. Making it hard but not impossible. Many games allow for a maxed out character and it’s fun cause your OP.
    TLDR
    Have a netherite anvil which increases the xp cap or removes the too expensive effects. Perhaps make repairs cap at 40 each time you wish to do so. And that I think is a solution everyone can get behind.

    Without playing the game themselves, they'll never be able to understand the worth of an item and how much effort it takes to get them done. Too bad to see expensive legendary weaponry fade completely out.

    I agree since I can't get mending on my bow since I have infinity on it, I have no way of repairing it with this annoying mechanic in the way.

    I 100% agree with this. There are ways to work around this (I got a bow with all enchantments and it only costs 8 levels to repair)(I can leave a link to a video describing this if you'd like), so it doesn't make sense that people that know the incredibly complicated way to enchant get to have gear with max enchants. This feature has no reason to be in the game. Even if you have an op enderman/ pigman/ etc. farm, I still takes a while to get above level 50 or 60. This feature is uncalled for and has literally no reason to be in the game.

    Mojang pls it became nearly impossible to have a heavily enchanted item last long or even have some decent enchantments unless you use a underhanded method like deleting game files or enchanting with a weird strategy and someone new to enchanting could get lost and do something wrong which will cause that person or persons to get angry and delete the game and the game will lose popularity

    If its easy to get xp, whats the problem with having you use xp to do stuff like enchanting
