Even with all the cool enchantments for 1.13's brand new weapon, the trident, I felt that it needed something to distinguish itself further, since the diamond sword remained meta in PvP. So, based on that, I came up with a datapack: Trident Things!

Trident Things adds a particle effect to thrown tridents, which becomes cooler if the trident has Channeling. But that's not the main thing. The main thing is a new customization option exclusive to everyone's favorite throwing fork: Trident Enhancements! Enhancements modify the function of your trident, giving it effects like poison or ice-breaking. Tridents can only have one enhancement at a time, and getting a new one will overwrite the old one. There is a full list of enhancements and how to get them below.
Enhancements full list
Poison Tipped (II)
Poison Tipped adds poisoning effects to your trident when used at range. Its level II version adds a better poison effect. To add it to your trident, throw it at a cave spider. To upgrade it to II, throw it at a pufferfish.
Ink Soaked
Ink Soaked adds a blindness effect to your trident when used at range. To add it to your trident, throw it at a squid.
This is a fun one! Surfing lets you surf on your trident for a little while after throwing it, and makes water. To add it to your trident, hit a boat with it, then throw it at the top of an end portal frame. (The end portal is hard to access. This is intentional.)
Frost Path
Frost Path creates ice under the trident as it flies. To add it to your trident, throw it at the top of blue ice.
Inferna Infused
This is very good in above-water combat! Inferna Infused enables the trident to break ice as it flies, and makes it combust for fire damage. To add it to your trident, throw it near a blaze.

This datapack can be installed in any vanilla 1.13 world. To install it, simply unzip the .zip file in the datapacks folder, then run the op command /reload, or quit and go back into your world.

This datapack is NOT compatible with the popular plugin Essentials (it messes up /tp and others).

Feel free to use this datapack on a server. Please give credit to me (eatYourHashs) if you post your server online.

Lol why am I suggesting to a 5 month old data pack?

Aqua Aura
Damages anything near the trident in 2 radius while thrown. Only for Riptide Trident. To add it, throw it to a Drowned. (Actually the effects particles that show up at a Riptide Trident (to see it, press F5 while throwing one) would look better if it damages.

Ender Pull (or whatever that is related to pulling and end teleportation)
I don't know if this is possible, throwing the trident into the target will teleport it near you. Then you can attack it close range. To add it to your trident, throw it at an Enderman. This is stronger than a fishing rod for pulling mobs.

Chain Flapping (lol i have no idea what to name this)
Lol i think this is really impossible, trident will continue to fly when hitted a mob (like it will have Motion:~,~5,~ or in short it will get accelerated upwards while no change to horizontal movement) so non-stop hitting. To apply it to your trident, throw it at a Shulker (because Shulker teleport like it was accelerated when hitted :D )

by the way it will be hard not to be attacked by the hostile mob while adding enchantments to the trident

I think the datapack would be easier to understand if you rename it to "Trident Fusing - Trident Enhancements". Dropping your trident near the mob/block is like fusing the essence of the mob/block with your trident and that sounds cool

Yeah, the datapack is old but that doesn’t mean you can’t suggest to it. I like your suggestions, and I may be able to implement them later on.

Thank you for trying out Trident Things! If you have a suggestion, such as a new enhancement, feel free to post it above and I’ll likely add it. Thanks.
