    Totally agree with this post.

    It just doesn't make sense to not have infinity with mending.

    Having just recently returned to this game and finding custom games no longer an option my whole view of playing has changed somewhat but I also understand a lot more about the why of certain mechanics.  Anyway, after just recently fishing up an infinity bow with about 15% health on it, yes I agree with you about the repair costs and should allow mending. 

    However, it is at the end of the day, a survival game which means nothing should last forever.  As much as I want my awesome loot and crafted items to last forever that completely goes against the whole spirit of a survival game.  If its was an MMORPG or FPS then yes loot should last forever but a game like this no.  The idea being do I use my really good stuff and wear it down or use the not so good stuff, that I can replace a lot quicker and easier and save the top tier stuff?

    Just my thoughts on the matter.  As much as I would love to have infinity and mending on a bow, kinda breaks the survival side.

    I have a fully enchanted bow with infinity, punch II, flame, power V, and unbreaking III. The repair first cost will be 9 levels. I used a web app to find the optimal enchantment order. I do think the infinity enchantment name is kind of gimmicky because it can only be used infinitely up until your bow becomes too expensive to repair. It would be more interesting and logical if you have to enchant the single arrow with infinity (would not work on stacks), then enchant your bow with mending.

    I agree, Mojang should fix this.

    It makes sense to me

    Either shoot infinitely until your bow breaks or

    shoot until you have no arrows left

    My bow said it would take 30 levels to fix last I checked but now that I have the levels I can’t repair it. So apparently I just lost my last repair for it.
