This is in discussions because I just thought of this very quickly, I just want to see how people think this idea will affect the game. If enough people agree that this is a good idea though, I will move it to suggestions.
When I saw Evident’s “Trapping with Kits” video, I realized he didn’t do anything interesting with the void walker, just spawn camp a void walker, not use it’s abilities. I don’t blame him though.
Compared to the other kits like Trapper, Builder, or Panik, I think Void walker is not very interesting. It’s not as bad as Baller, and is powerful, but there’s not a lot interesting things you can do with it.
And because it’s powerful, it needs a nerf to give way for buffs that make it more interesting.
- Just like enderpearls, you take damage when using your void save.
- The damage you take is based on armor. If you have chain/iron you get 4-6 hearts of damage when voiding. If you have half or almost full diamond you get 2-3 hearts of damage.
With this nerf comes opportunities to buff the void walker with tools to get to mid.
- 4 vault/leaps like those in block drop or deathrun. It’s called void walker after all.
- Maybe a diamond pick to mine redstone(absorption) faster
Leapers are versatile and a very fast way to get to mid. You will get there even before builders do. And imagine the things you can do with the vault jumps. The traps and plays. The void walker will be as interesting as the other kits, maybe even the most. I think the void walker is fine in it’s current state, and it is probably the most used kit, but with the things you can do with the vault leaps, the plays and clips in yt will still have a lot of kids wanting to do these plays.
