Yes. But their official statement when the possible bug was reported was they tested their 1.12 reference client and it worked that way in Vanilla so they’re not fixing it. Despite it clearly not being intended and obviously going to cause issues.
Caused a big ruckus on the paladin discord. Their approach is IMHO wrong. It shouldn’t be did this work like this in Vanilla, it should be if this was discovered to work like this in vanilla Would it have been fixed.
