I feel that Swords are no longer as useful as they were in 1.8. I think a way to make them more useful in 1.16+ combat would be to add a new enchantment called trespassing. The trespassing enchantment would have a maximum level of III in survival, each level would give the Sword a 10% chance of negating the shield and dealing full damage per hit. This would make swords more useful in PvP. and would make them more efficient against shields.
