Finally upgraded to 1.3.1. Go the unpleasent surprise of max enchantment level dropping to 30 from 50. I will miss my 50. Anyway to get it back? Plugin?

The level 30 enchants are just as strong as the previous 50. Is there a reason you want to change it back? – Domocus Aug 18 '12 at 20:34
I had not heard that, and the last 5 enchantments I've received were pretty lame, so I assumed enchantments had been nerfed. – John Aug 18 '12 at 23:12
@Domocus do you have a reference for that statement? I just enchanted 3 pickaxes and all the levels were consistent with a level 30 enchantment, and not a 1.2.* level 50 enchantment. – John Aug 19 '12 at 3:26
Primarily from experience, but I do believe I first saw this noted in the 1.3 snapshots. – Domocus Aug 19 '12 at 3:52
I haven't actually played in the latest release, but in the snapshots, I was getting enchantments at level 30 that were just as good as previous level 50 enchantments. – SaintWacko Aug 20 '12 at 16:07

Based upon comments, there is no need for a Level 50 mod, as the 1.3.1 Level 30 enchantments are equivalent to the pre 1.3.1 level 50 enchantments.

I don't think there's a plugin or mod that could do that, but you could revert to an older version of Minecraft with Mclauncher. Just look up Mclauncher for mac/pc and you will find it.

I'm quite certain it's called MCNostalgia. – Arperum May 17 '13 at 22:18
