Dinnerbone Reveals More About 1.9, Answers Questions

Though we have yet to see a serious snapshot this year, we have seen bits and pieces of what's planned for 1.9. Today, Dinnerbone gave us a bigger glimpse of the features they plan to implement in 1.9.

Earlier this morning, Dinnerbone tweeted a picture of himself dual wielding fish before an army of hungry ocelots.

He answered many questions about 1.9. Here's the highlights:

  • You will be able to dual wield items, including weapons, but you can't attack with the second weapon.

  • There will be a "lefty mode" which includes a left-sided arm viewmodel that's also visible to other players.

  • You will only see your second arm when you've got something equipped in it, or when you're using a bow or map.

  • Dinnerbone has nicknamed the "shield slot" as the "offhand slot."

  • Swords will no longer block.  Instead, shields will do the job.


Dinnerbone also mentions that nothing he's said is 100% final, so expect changes between now and the snapshots/release.

hopefully the lefty view model will come to PE in 12.0. Lefty mode currently is horrible

YES! Shields and no more damage dealt to swords when blocking, because they won't block any more!

I just hope that you will still have to DO something to use the shield and it wont just act like extra armor. Maybe a separate button (such as R as default?) will make the shield "block" like a sword did. IDK just my thoughts.
