Minecraft Dungeons is an excellent and accessible action RPG, set in the blocky Minecraft world. As you ascend difficulty tiers, you'll unlock a huge trove of armor and artifact abilities, giving you access to a wealth of different character playstyles and customization.
One pretty cool feature Minecraft Dungeons gives you is the ability to fully clone a character. This is useful for trying out other builds, or having a character separate from your main to spend enchantment points elsewhere without deleting items on your main. The logical alternative would be to have some sort of shared inventory like Diablo III, with the ability to re-allocate enchantment points without destroying items (or by spending Emeralds, maybe).
In any case, the character cloning system is a useful alternative for the time being. Writing character class build guides for Windows Central, I have cloned my main a few times to spend points on different pieces of gear, deleting the clones afterwards so that I don't lose track of my main.
Today, however, when I deleted my most recent clone, it reset my main's inventory to zero, deleting dozens of Unique items I had collected. Thankfully I kept my equipped items, allowing me to continue to play, but all of those other hard-earned items are now gone. I've reported the bug to Mojang, but until they fix it, you may want to avoid cloning characters for the time being.
Update: Some have pointed out that I may have just deleted the wrong character, but I'm near 100 percent certain I didn't, since I always give my cloned characters a different skin. It may well be the case that I did though (yay, no sleep). Either way, it's worth being careful!
