One of the best features in World of Warcraft was the hearthstone, which allowed players to set a location as their home and return to that location simply by activating their hearthstone. This saved players from hours of walking and was an easy way to return ‘home’ at the end of a playing session.
This mod isn’t called the Minecraft Hearthstone mod, but it probably could be. The CrystalWing mod for Minecraft adds a Crystal Wing item into the game. This item instantly zaps players back to a location of their choice.
So, if you dig too far underground or simply venture too far from your home, you don’t have to worry about finding your way back. Instead, just activate your Crystal Wing and away you go. This mod encourages exploration since you don’t have to worry about finding your way back home or becoming lost in some foreign environment.
The Crystal Wing mod isn’t completely like cheating, since it has a finite amount of durability. The Wing can be used eight times before breaking, although it does not have a cooldown effect.
It’s also important to note that the Wing cannot be used in the Nether. If you try to use it in the Nether, it will turn into a Burning Wing and you will be set immediately on fire (jump in the nearest water to save yourself and turn the item into a Burned Wing).
The Burned Wing is an interesting item in itself. Instead of returning players to their pre-set home, the Burned Wing transports players to a random location in the world. This can be fun or very dangerous, so be sure to use the Burned Wing wisely if you find yourself trapped in the Nether.
