    Bought the Grappling Hook, and threw it but it did not teleport when I retracted the lure. Is this a bug or intentional design?

    It teleports if you're 2 blocks away from where it lands, which is pointless. Hoping for a quick fix.

    The Grappling Hook just needs to be inside a block to be able to teleport you - just wait an extra second before clicking again.

    If i'm not wrong, the Infinity on Grappling Hook make it impossible for it to have mending. Like with bows.
    Though, it can be repaired with normal fishpoles. I mean, it seems.
    And it cant be repaired forever.

    So there's a definite maximum number of uses ?

    Also, a book of unenchantment could be used on the infinity ? Would it also break the special ability of the Grappling Hook ? Maybe we could use unenchantment from 1.14 ?

    So many questions, we need a wiki for the rares :p

    Yeah that's what I was thinking about. The Grappling Hook is already a shitty but cool version of the Enderbow, and you can put Mending on the Enderbow to keep it going forever. I'm not sure why the already less OP Grappling Hook would get a restriction of Infinity on it so we can't slap Mending on it :/

    After realizing you cannot put mending on it, I sold it for 55DB. Was a great idea, but Enderbow still reins supreme.

    I've been suggesting it since around March of April of last year. The Grappling Hook was never supposed to be better than the Enderbow or anything. It was just something I've always loved and wanted in the game. But with such a big restriction it really makes it suck now which well...sucks lol

    Hi guys, when I made this set of items I just used Infinity as my default base enchantment to make the items glow - I didn't consider what would happen from an enchanting perspective, or that mending would conflict with the infinity enchantment.

    I'll retcon the Grappling Hook and make it unbreakable - if you have an existing grappling hook it will also become unbreakable. I will put the fix in tonight.

    While you're at it, I did mention to a moderator about the Old MacDonald's Hoe. If you can, please tp to me in-game on blue so I can show you. Rather not say what it does here.
