It would be nice to have something like that. But developers stance on farming is that they want to move away from block farming and focus more on engaging farming like mining and nether. This makes makes it harder for botters.
If they add something like this then many people will go back to block farming and botters will be able to farm alot more.
People could still farm sbs depending on the new farmable for example,
it grows about a week, or/and harder to break. < This would be the disadvantage, making both of them balanced. If both things are balanced, people will be able to choose which they would prefer, if which grow time / number of hits to break do they prefer so SB won’t die, it would probably just be like BBB vs CCB in the past. You farm which you prefer.
Also won’t be “easier” to get wls as they will of course make that balanced. You are already saying that it would be “easier” based on the gem drop rate, but you haven’t even seen the other factors to determine if this would really be superior to the farming we have now. And im pretty sure grinding farming would not be “almost nothing”
Just my thoughts.
Ye right @Commanderder… The complexity of the block and the toughness to break it will make its users fall down like many people would farm sb instead of bbb because its lighter to hit and stuff… That would be good… The game can add it
