Are swords better than axes, or the other way around? When I look at axes in MC I usually see that axes supposedly deal lots of damage, even more than swords. Are axes more powerful or something? Thanks!

Axes do more damage, while swords have a shorter cooldown. I personally use swords, but both can work well.

For me Outflow the better one is the axe cause it deals more damage than the sword. but the special ability of the sword which hits multiple at a time also makes it better... so i don't actually know whats the best XD

It depends on what you're using it for. Swords are obviously better for combat and axes are better for getting wood and other stuff. I mean I'd imagine both deal the same or close to the same amount of damage but I could be wrong.

It can usually depend on the circumstances that you are currently in, sword is good for crowd control and able to deal damage faster which also goes well with able to knock enemies back faster. The axe is slow but able to deal massive amounts of damage to single targets, as well as to disable enemy shields. So it depends. Swords are cheaper and axes lose more durability when using them to attack.

I love swords, but they're useless if you want to chop down trees. Invest in bows...

I would generally say swords, but it's also useful to get a jump hit with an axe and then switch to sword!

My opinion is swords are better. Axes may do more damage, but they have a longer cooldown (If you're using 1.9+). Swords have a shorter cooldown, and with Sharpness IV-V, it would be stronger than an axe.

But if you enchant sharpness 4 or 5 on axes it would also be stronger wouldn't it?

If the server has MCMMO and you don't have access to enchantments yet, then I would say that the axe is a powerfull and fun weapon. I use it all the time because I think the sword is more effective, but not as much fun.

Playing servers with MCMMO and bashing someone with an axe, see them fly 10 blocks back and the explosion sound that comes along with it is so much more fun! :D

It's a plugin for servers that allows the players to gain XP in their certain skills. That would be things such as: Tree-cutting, sword fighting, acrobatics and so on and so on.
The higher the level, the longer, and stronger your "Special ability" becomes. Depending on the skill you're using it will have certain abilities attached to it.

Example:
Tree cutter's special ability is that they can cut the bottom-block on a huge tree, and that tree will instantly become lumber.
Sword fighting special ability is that when you hit an enemy they will start bleeding until they die.
Acrobatics special ability is that there's a chance that when you jump from high places it will say "You did a roll" and take no damage at all, no matter the height.

Without enchantments axes are better, but with them a sword is much better.

It honestly depends on what you're looking for in a run, If you want raw power, go with axe, if you want higher recharge and combos, use a sword

Nowadays diamond axes do more damage than a diamond sword. With sharpness, fire aspect and efficiency enchantments, the axe can be both a strong weapon better than a sword but also serves another purpose... it is to chop trees for wood

Axe and swords are basically the same but sword are better because they are stronger and are easier to craft
