Must mine moar
I thoroughly enjoy minecraft its fun and a good way to spend some free time but with the release of patch whatever 1.8? it leaves me with a question.
Do the XP orbs you get actually get you levels or acheive anything or are they a precursor to some sort of system like that?
They dont do anything, as of yet. (afaik)
As far as i know it doesn't actually do anything in 1.8, in the 1.9 pre release i hear there are actually levels given but i don't know if they have implemented effects for attaining a higher level.
In 1.8, they don't do anything, except from filling your XP bar up.
In 1.9 prerelease 3, they do grant levels, but nothing happens when you level up.

You use the XP levels to enchant armor and weapons. (Also fishing poles...)
But for now the enchants do nothing.
