    Aloha Applecrafters,

    I want to take this post to set the proper expectation for everyone on when we do and don't replace broken rares. This policy is the same between all the worlds. Our policy with this has not changed, I am simply announcing it to spread awareness.

    Our Policy
    - We only replace rares if they have the Unplaceable tag and accidentally get placed.
    - 1% of other cases may be replaced by an Admin if a unique situation happened, although that will be settled on a case-by-case basis.

    Here are some example cases when rares will not be replaced:
    - A rare is accidentally used (such as tokens)
    - An item disappeared from an inventory, enderchest, chest, or shulker box
    - An item is accidentally dropped
    - An item broke while using it (ex: armor or a weapon)
    - Once a book is applied to an item it cannot be refunded or transferred
    - Consistently asking for replacements

    Our Reasoning
    Due to the open potential for scams, which has previously been abused, rares are replaced less often. In addition, although we understand rares could be used on accident, it is not our fault they were used, placed, dropped, or lost. With the lack of evidence a rare was in a chest or inventory, we cannot replace rares that disappeared.

    Personally, I am asked multiple times per week, nearly once per day, to replace a broken rare. That's only me, not including the other admins. We simply cannot replace that many rares, and we advise everybody to be cautious while using rares.

    Final Thoughts
    Please be careful with your rares, and please spread the awareness of this post. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments. Thank you.

    On the topic of "books placed on an item cannot be refunded", i had a situation where i had put the satiety book from the library crate on my pants, but because apple coded satiety differently than normal I wanted to switch to saturation. So i put saturation book on it as well, but the two conflicted and both didnt work. A nice admin fixed it for me by removing the satiety, though i didnt get the book back i was happy.

    Is this a good example of where its a case by case exception? For context the satiety book was only in the crate for a short time and it was removed and replaced with a saturation book.

    This isn’t really an exception, we remove book enchants from items regularly and the book with the enchant isn’t returned.

    Myself and other admins have done this quite a bit.

    Grindstones remove every enchant, people want specific enchants removed.
