The problems with the idea of hoes as weapons, and solutions to them:
Sharpness V netherite hoes on skilled players would be just too OP, and they could defeat diamond armored players without receiving damage, and that's due to 2 problems. Attack strenght isn't one of them, so these are the problems, and how they should be fixed:
1) Reduce knockback given by hoes: If a skilled player uses a hoe, then it's untouchable. Specially when uses a hoe to punch away attackers. So if the knockback is nerfed, then attackers have an opportunity to attack the hoe player.
2) Reduce hoe attack speed: They are fast, but too much. If a skilled player, combining that with the knockback, attack other players, then it's overpowered at the point that it can beat damond armor players without receiving damage. So, if the attack speed is reduced, then attackers could have more time to attack, resulting in fair fights.
Thanks, I would like to see hoes as weapons, but without making them overpowered.
