Imagine this, your walking through a cave, placing torches as you walk along, but you're running low on torches. Just as you are about to run out of torches, you find a whole new cave system! But unfortunately, you don't have enough torches to walk through, fearing without the light you might not be able to see all the ores in this new cave.
That's where the shimmer enchantment comes in handy.
This specific enchantment can only be placed on your helmet. There are three levels, each higher level is more powerful than the latter.
At the first level, when you are standing still and crouching, your helmet will illuminate like a torch!
At the second level, you only have to be crouching, you can move around while crouching and you will still illuminate.
And at the third level, so long as you are not running, you will illuminate.
Upon breaking one of these rules, your light will quickly fade and flicker out.
There always has to be a drawback for using enchantments though. For instance, using Soul Speed reduces durability. So maybe while you are illuminated, your helmet slowly drains its own durability.
I believe that this would be a rather interesting feature, one that I think would fit right in with the new caves and cliffs update coming soon!
I thank all the Mojang crew for working so diligently to make Minecraft such an amazing game, keep up the great work guys! I hope you consider my idea.
