I have a Minecraft 1.8.1 vanilla server and would like to reward certain users. I would like to /give some users a 99999/99999 durability renamed Diamond Pickaxe (with all enchantments on it).

How do I use commands to change/repair the durability of items? If possible, using only one command and use /give.


You can use the /give command to create an item with a certain amount of durability by entering a damage value after the quantity. For example, to give a diamond pickaxe that has been used 50 times (1511 durability remaining), use this command:

/give @p diamond_pickaxe 1 50

The /give command also allows you to give items with NBT data, including the Unbreaking tag. To give a diamond pickaxe that will never break, use this command:

/give @p diamond_pickaxe 1 0 {Unbreakable:1}

Well, the easiest way is to do /give @p <item> 1 <lost durability> you may have to play around with this but in your way you can do:

/give @p diamond_pickaxe 1 11560

This command will say that the durability is -9999 however, this means that the pick will go up to 0 to break. which leaves 9999 uses!
