Seriously, how can you get get this to 3.97 seconds?! How?! I mean, I was seriously bad in math in school, and still am, but not even I can get that as high as 3.97 (practically 4 seconds) between two hits?! If this isn't extreme case of fan boyism over the old combat system, then I don't know what this is? Either that, or then you are very successful troll. But I guess, that haters gonna hate.
I'm talking about 1.7.10 which is what I'm playing on. This 1.9 decreased damage wait until it regenerates thing is driving me crazy. Its just wait and hit... wait and hit... wait............. and................... hit... and I'm not a hater. I dislike this aspect of minecraft, and wish it was never implemented. But I don't HATE it.
