Torches not giving off light!?

I’ve been playing on a Minecraft Realms with some friends for about a month now but lately some of the older torches that we have places are not giving off ight like they used to.

Does anyone know why?

If they are destroyed and replaced they’re fine and any new ones placed work well, but the ones that have been there don’t give off enough light to span areas lager than the block it’s placed on.

Is that a chunk loading error? Should I wait for new patch?

Just a noob question!

Hello minecrafters! As silly as it sounds I am new to this game. Started playing vanilla Minecraft 1.14(Java) and I am wondering is it still possible to get a Mending book from fishing? I have lure III luck of the sea III unbreaking III and mending fishing rod… left it working over night but nothing… did they take it out or is it just very rare?

Yes, it can take a while. Just let it run again over night and eventually you will get a mending book.

To my knowledge it’s just really rare. I got one once but it took like 8 hours.

Question about Guardians

Does anyone know if elder guardians respawn if you turn on peaceful then turn it off? i just wanna make it easier to find the sponges without having to kill a ton of guardians and the elder ones and i know elder guardians don’t respawn after you kill them. i just want to eventually kill the elder guardians, not initially.

If you are in peaceful and load the chunks where an ocean monument is the elder guardians are gone forever from that ocean monument. They don’t respawn or come back if you change your difficulty. This is how Minecraft works.
