Enchanting methods

There are three methods of enchanting items in Survival mode:

There are also an additional four methods of obtaining enchanted items:

Enchantment table

Enchantment table interface. Top: Without item. Bottom: With item, hovering over the second line.

An item can be enchanted by using an enchantment table Enchantment Table Type Solid Block Requirements None Physics No Transparency Yes Luminance Computer: No Pocket Edition: 12 Blast resistance 6,000 Hardness 5 Tool Renewable No Stackable Yes (64) Flammable No First appearances See History Drops minecraft and placing the item and 1⃢₀ₓ3 lapis lazuli in the input slots. Upon placing the item, three randomized options will appear on the right of the GUI. The glyphs here do not affect the enchantment, but hovering over a presented enchantment will show one enchantment that will be applied. Only choices with a level requirement equal to or below the player`s current level and a lapis lazuli requirement equal to or below the number of lapis lazuli placed in the table can be chosen. Each option will imbue the item with a randomized set of enchantments that are dependent on the number of experience levels required (e.g.: a level 1 enchantment can give a pickaxe the "Efficiency I" enchantment); the actual level cost and the number of lapis lazuli required has no effect.

The level requirement influences the quantity, type, and level of enchantments instilled in the item, with a higher experience level generally resulting in more and/or higher-level enchantments. Nevertheless, there is a heavy random factor, and even a level 30 enchantment (the maximum) doesn`t guarantee more than one enchantment, nor even that enchantments will be "maximum strength" ⃢₀ₔ a level 30 enchantment can still yield Fortune II or Efficiency III alone, for example.

Enchanting a book Book Type Manufactured items Durability N/A Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64) First appearances See History Data value dec: 340 hex: 154 bin: 101010100 Name book See standard books. For other uses, see Book (disambiguation). Books minecraft will produce an enchanted book, which does nothing on its own, but effectively "saves" the enchantment for later application to another item with an anvil Anvil Transparency Yes Luminance No Blast resistance 6,000 Tool Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64), same damage state only Flammable No Drops Itself Data value dec: 145 hex: 91 bin: 10010001 Name anvil See the item minecraft .

Unlike with an anvil, using the enchanting table while on Creative will still cost XP. However if the player doesn`t have enough XP they will just be reduced to level zero and the enchantment will work as if they had paid the full amount. This includes attempts to use the enchanting table while already at level zero.

Affecting offered enchantments

The possible enchantments depend only on the player`s enchantment seed, the item type and material, and the enchantment level (1⃢₀ₓ30). Removing the item and putting it back in, clicking on the item slot with a different item, using a different item of the same type and material, replacing or moving the table (but keeping the same number of bookshelves), using a different table with the same number of bookshelves, or replacing or rearranging the bookshelves without changing their total number has no effect on the possible enchantments.

Changing the enchantment levels offered by adding, removing, or blocking bookshelves will alter the enchantments shown, but will not change possible enchantments, using another enchanting table with the previous bookshelf number will show the previous enchantments. The enchantments for a particular enchantment level (with the same seed and item) do also differ depending on which row it appears in, but they are no "better" or "worse" based on the row despite the different resource costs.

Enchanting any item at any enchantment level changes the player`s enchantment seed, which will change the possible enchantments for every item at every enchantment level. Thus, if none of the available enchantments for a tool are desired, 1 lapis lazuli and 1 level could be spent to enchant a book or a different tool to refresh the list.

Anvil combinations

An anvil can be used to combine the enchantments of two items, sacrificing one of them and repairing the other. The items must be of the same type (for instance, an iron pickaxe and a diamond pickaxe cannot be combined), and there are limits to what enchantments can be combined and how much work can be done in one operation.

To combine items, the player places the target item in the first slot of an anvil Anvil Transparency Yes Luminance No Blast resistance 6,000 Tool Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64), same damage state only Flammable No Drops Itself Data value dec: 145 hex: 91 bin: 10010001 Name anvil See the item minecraft , and the sacrifice item in the second slot. If the combination is allowed, the resulting enchanted item will appear in the anvil`s output slot and an experience level cost appears below (green if the player has enough experience levels, red if they don`t). To complete the enchanting, the player removes the enchanted item from the anvil`s output slot, and their experience level is reduced accordingly.

The cost in levels depends on the enchantments, with highly enchanted items costing more. If the target item is also being repaired, that costs more as well. The target item can also be renamed, at additional cost. There is also an accumulating surcharge for prior work done on the anvil. In Survival mode, there is a limit of 39 levels for any work performed on the anvil⃢₀ₔif a job would cost more, it will be refused (though it might be do-able in steps: repair and then combine enchantments).

Enchanted books

The book can receive multiple enchantments of any type, but only enchantments appropriate to a given item type may be applied to that item. For instance, the same book may receive Respiration and Power enchantments, but the Respiration enchantment will be lost if the book is applied to anything but a helmet, and the Power enchantment will be lost if the book is applied to anything but a bow.

They can apply some enchantments to items which cannot be enchanted from an enchantment table, e.g., Thorns on boots.

In Creative mode, books can enchant any item with any enchantment, such as a stick having Knockback II. Mutually-exclusive enchantments, such as Protection and Blast Protection, are still mutually-exclusive regardless.

The experience costs for using books are considerably less than for combining items with similar enchantments, since the books themselves cost levels to create. Be that as it may, it`s still an extra cost, and enchanting items directly has a chance to get multiple enchantments. The big advantage of books is that they can be stockpiled for use on an item of choice, and allow for controlled combinations. For instance, a Silk Touch book could be used on axe, pickaxe, or shovel, and you can decide which at your leisure⃢₀ₔperhaps something that already has Unbreaking? An Unbreaking book might be used to preserve your Looting sword, Fortune pickaxe, or Thorns armor.

    ⃢₀₋Summary

    Enchantments (sometimes shortened to Enchants) are special bonuses or abilities that can be applied to Armor, Tools or Weapons through the use of an Enchantment Table, or an Anvil if the player has enchanted books. Enchanted books can be acquired via trading or by placing a Book in an Enchantment Table.

    Overview

    When a piece of Armor or a Tool is enchanted, it will glow (much like a potion), allowing the holder and any nearby players to see that the item is enchanted. An enchanted item will display any current enchantments and their level of strength on the item (unless the enchantment is limit to level 1) if examined in the Inventory menu. Using the Enchantment Table method allows the player to enchant Armor, Shovels, Pickaxes, Axes, Swords and Bows.

    Many more items can be enchanted. However, this can only be done with an Anvil and/or an Enchanted Book. This process is very useful, especially for enchanting other items with Durability or items that would not normally get a certain enchantment. Some objects that can only be enchanted in this way are Flint and Steel, a Fishing Rod, or a Hoe.

    Enchanting procedure

    In order to enchant, the player needs an Enchantment Table, several Experience Points and the item they wish to enchant. As of 1.8 The Bountiful Update, Lapis Lazuli is required as well. Up to 30 Bookshelf blocks may be placed around the table to allow higher level enchantments.

    First, set up the Enchanting area. After placing the Enchantment Table, bookshelves should be placed 1 block away from all sides of the Enchantment Table (leaving a block of air on all sides). Carpet or torches laid on the floor between the table and bookshelves will block the bookshelf bonus from reaching the enchantment table. Since Minecraft only checks for a maximum of 15 nearby bookshelves, there is no reason to place more bookshelves (other than for aesthetic reasons).

    The Enchantment Table can be used by right-clicking it and placing the item to be enchanted within a slot in the enchanting interface. Lapis Lazuli must also be added to a separate slot in the interface. The player will then receive 3 enchanting options with varying levels, requiring up to 30 Experience Levels, and subtracting up to 3 levels.

    If a higher number of experience points is used for the enchantment, it is more likely the item being enchanted will get a better enchantment, or possibly more than one enchantment. However, this is not guaranteed.

    Enchanting a Book will create an Enchanted Book with a random enchantment stored in it. Books can absorb any enchantment that the Enchantment Table can bestow, but the book only acts as a place to hold the enchantment in the player`s inventory before it is transferred to an actual item. In order to make use of an Enchanted Book, it needs to be placed in an Anvil along with the item to be enchanted. The book will be consumed and the item will (if compatible) receive the enchantment that the book had stored.

    If in Creative Mode, one can use the book enchanting method to enchant any item they wish, with any enchantment they wish. Some of these item-enchant combos can be completely useless (i.e.: Paper with Silk Touch, Sword with Flame, etc.).

    A player can add additional enchantments to an item by using one item to repair another of the same type on an anvil. Any enchantments from the sacrificed item will be applied to the repaired item if the enchant is meant to be used on that type of item. This process can be repeated to keep adding additional enchantments.

    Efficiency

    Efficiency increases the working power of the tool (the speed at which it mines/destroys blocks). It can be especially helpful for diamond pickaxes that are used to gather Obsidian, which has a very high durability. Efficiency is also useful for cutting down trees with an axe. Do not use Efficiency on a pickaxe if it`s meant for mining Netherrack, since Netherrack is very fragile against higher-tier pickaxes to begin with. The efficiency effect adds +30% mining speed over the previous level: I=130%, II=169%, III=220%, IV=286%, V=371%. The speed increase applies to all blocks that when mined, will drop an item. Using the wrong tool will not provide as much of a speed boost. It can have a power level of up to V.


    Fortune

    Fortune is a special enchantment that gives the wielder of the enchanted tool a chance of obtaining copies of the mined object. Note that Fortune only works on immediate-drop ores, such as Diamond, Coal, and Emerald Ores. The higher the level, the more likely the player is to have the enchantment come into effect. It also makes it more likely to receive more than two. For coal, diamond, emerald, redstone, and Lapis Lazuli, level I gives a 33% chance to multiply drops by 2 (averaging 33% increase). Level II gives a 25% chance each to multiply drops by 2 or 3 (averaging 75% increase). Level III gives a 20% chance each to multiply drops by 2, 3 or 4 (averaging 120% increase). For carrots, glowstone, melons, Nether Wart, tall grass and wheat (seeds only), each level increases the drop maximum by +1 (+2 for tall grass, 4 for glowstone, and 9 for melons). For gravel, the drop rate of Flint is increased to 14% at level I, 25% at level II, and 100% at level III. It can have a power level of up to III.


    Silk Touch

    Silk Touch is an enchantment that allows players to mine various things and get the exact item they mined. In other words, it grants the player ability to harvest blocks that normally would be unobtainable or difficult to obtain. Items can be converted to their regular form with the use of a normal tool. Blocks of interest to a player with a silk touch tool can be:

    • Grass Blocks
    • Smooth Stone
    • Glowstone Blocks
    • Ice
    • Mycelium
    • Ores

    The negative side of the Silk Touch enchantment is that it will release the raw ore forms, not the drops of Coal, Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, Redstone Dust, Nether Quartz, and Diamond. This means that the player must smelt them (or use a normal tool) in order to receive them and they will only receive one of the material the ore gives. Silk Touch is naturally available on both shovels and pickaxes. Silk Touch can also be applied to Shears using the Book Enchanting method.

    Silk Touch also allows the player to obtain blocks that can`t be obtained any other way in Survival. In addition to the mining blocks listed above, Silk Touch can be added to Shears, which allows the player to obtain Cobwebs found in Abandoned Mine Shaft.

    This enchantment also allows the player to harvest ore blocks in dangerous situations (such as harvesting a Nether Quartz Ore in The Nether) and mine them in a safer situation at a later time. This Enchantment has only 1 level.


    Unbreaking

    Unbreaking gives the bow the chan

    Bane of Arthropods

    Bane of Arthropods, sometimes referred to as BoA, is a common enchantment for swords, which can also be applied to Axes via an anvil. Bane of Arthropods affects all enemies classified by science to have an exoskeleton. In-game, it affects Spiders, Cave Spiders, Silverfish, and Endermites. Bane of Arthropods increases the amount of damage dealt to these types of enemies. The effect adds 1.25 hearts extra damage per level for every hit. At level one, 1-1.5 seconds of Slowness 4 will be dealt to the arthropod; the limit is increased by 0.5 seconds per level of BoA (up to 3.5 seconds). Note that BoA does not stack with critical hits, unlike Strength. It can have a power level of up to V.


    Fire Aspect

    Flame`s Sword counterpart, Fire Aspect makes the enchanted sword set the target on fire when hit. The higher the level, the longer the opponent will burn. Meat-bearing animals will drop cooked meat when slain. Fire Aspect is also useful for keeping player targets from running away, as taking environmental damage will cease a player`s sprint, slowing them down. It can also be used to periodically wear down another player`s armor. It can have a power level of up to II.


    Knockback

    Knockback is an enchantment that can commonly be found on Swords and is usually paired with Sharpness, creating a force to be reckoned with. Knockback increases the knockback dealt to an enemy or target depending on the level. With this enchantment, Knockbacks can be performed on enemies without having to sprint. However, enchant and sprint-related knockbacks do not combine to make a stronger knockback. Knockback can be applied to an Axe using the book enchanting method. This enchantment is useful for fighting creepers because it stops them from exploding. It can have a Power level of up to II.


    Looting

    Looting is a rarer enchantment that allows the player to obtain more drops from mobs as well as rarer mob drops. Looting has three levels: I, II, and III. The higher the level, the higher the chance is the player will receive rare loot, as well as more of it. This is especially useful for players looking for rare loot such as Wither Skeleton Heads and Ender Pearls. It can have a power level of up to III.


    Sharpness

    Sharpness is an enchantment for a Sword, which can also be applied to Axes. It is one of the most common enchantments. Sharpness makes the weapon do extra damage; for example, level one will turn an Iron Sword`s amount of damage dealt into the equivalent of a Diamond Sword`s. Sharpness can also be applied to an Axe using the book enchanting method. Sharpness I adds half a hart of damage; each additional level adds a quarter heart extra damage for every hit (up to 1.5 hearts extra). Note that sharpness does not stack with critical hits, unlike Strength. It can have a power level of up to V.


    Smite

    Smite is a rarer enchantment for Swords, which can also be applied to Axes. A weapon with this enchantment deals more damage to undead foes. This affects a large range of opponents: Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, Skeletons, and Wither Skeletons. Despite the Wither being "undead", damage is not added to them. The smite effect adds 1.25 heats of extra damage per level for every hit. Note that smite does not stack with critical hits, unlike strength. It can have a power level of up to V.


    Sweeping Edge

    Sweeping Edge is an enchantment for swords. It applies a damage multiplier to every enemy hit within the arc of a sweeping attack. The damage multiplier is increased with enchantment level.


    Flame

    Fire Aspect`s Bow counterpart, Flame will set the opponent on fire on hit with an arrow. Unlike Fire Aspect, there is only one level. As with any fire weapon, cooked goods are dropped from peaceful farming mobs. Flame is useful for dealing extra damage along with keeping other players from being able to sprint (as taking damage from the environment ceases the player`s ability to sprint). Flame bows can also be used as a ranged detonator for TNT. It can have a power level of up to I.


    Infinity

    Infinity is the most useful enchantment for the bow. When Infinity is wielded by a Bow, it will give the user infinite arrows, requiring only one arrow in the player`s inventory to use it. Although it can create an infinite amount of arrows, it still wears down durability and does not protect the Bow from taking damage. It is also important to know that the infinite arrows cannot be collected if they hit a block instead of the intended target. It is also important to note that this enchantment does NOT affect Tipped Arrows. It can have a power level of up to I.


    Power

    Power is an enchantment for the bow that is very similar to Sharpness for the Sword, dealing more damage to the player`s foes on hit with an arrow. The higher the power level is, the stronger the hit will be. After collecting a few Power levels on a bow, it will eventually do enough damage to take out unarmored foes, such as a Creeper, in a single shot. It is the most common bow enchantment, and it can have a power level of up to V.


    Punch

    Punch is the counterpart of Knockback for Bows. Punch will hit the opponent farther when this enchantment is applied on the bow. Although the Bow already has an original small amount of knockback, increasing the amount of knockback allows for easier medium-range combat, knocking enemies farther, giving the player time to reload and fire again. It can have a power level of up to II.
