Enchantments in Minecraft were a great addition, they provided players with more end-game content and added a ton of functionality to other features. To become the ultimate Minecraft player, you need a set of enchanted armor and tools. This will allow you to obtain resources quickly and effectively, as well as survive mob encounters without a scratch. To help you choose which enchantments to stick on your gear, here’s the top 10 best Minecraft enchantments!
Come on, we’ve all had trouble with zombie hordes, admit it. A single Zombie is no threat, you can keep knocking it back until it finally goes down. A horde of zombies? That’s a different story, it’s difficult to hit all targets in and around you. They’ll keep hitting you and over time, this damage adds up to one dead Minecraft player. This is where Thorns comes in, this enchantment deals damage to anyone who melee attacks you. It’s considerably effective when dealing with hordes as the more they hit you, the more they take!
Sometimes you just want to put the sword away, take off your armor and sit by the sea with your fishing rod. No amount of dead Creepers can match the graceful serenity of removing fish from their homes to eat later. Fishing with an unenchanted rod is simply a waste of time, do not do it. You’ll be waiting ages per fish, so you need to get yourself an upgrade bro. Specifically, the Lure enchantment is amazing. It massively reduces the time it takes for fish to bite your rod, meaning more fish and more treasures!
8. Projectile Protection
Is there anyone out there who enjoys being a game of Pong for skeletons? The arrow knock-back is one of the most infuriating things in the game, especially if you’re just trying to swim across a small stretch of water. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about the knock-back, but you can make sure you don’t take a ton of damage in the process. Introducing Projectile Protection! The enchantment that almost completely nullifies ballistic damage from arrows and fireballs. What you gonna do now eh skeletons?!
The sword is the go-to weapon for almost every player out there, the reliable close range damage is too good to pass up. While unenchanted swords are fine in their own right, you need to beef yours up a bit. Whack on the Sharpness enchantment, boost that damage even further to make you a monster at close range. It’s great for brutally murdering your farm mobs too.
6. Fire Aspect
The Fire Aspect enchantment is actually one of the best as it sets your target on fire, dealing high damage over time. However, it is vulnerable to rain, unlike Adele, so it has to come at a piddly number 6 on the list. But if you can make use of it, this enchantment can take down groups of mobs easily. The most important factor is for when you’re committing mass genocide on your livestock, setting them on fire will instantly cook the meat they drop!
You’ve got a grand spanking new Sharpness 3 Sword, you’re one hitting any and everything, but the durability is getting low 🙁 You need a dose of Unbreaking, this epic enchantment will mega-morph your item’s durability seven-fold. This will save you precious Diamonds or Iron Ingots as you rarely need to repair. It’s one of the more common enchantments too, make Unbreaking a priority!
The Looting enchantment will provide you with extra loot drops from mobs. This means more food and resources like string & gunpowder. You won’t really want to add this to your main fighting sword but having a sword with this enchantment can help you stockpile resources.
3. Silk Touch
We all want certain blocks but they break if we try to obtain them (Stone, Lapis, Snow etc). With this enchantment, you can destroy blocks without them breaking into their lower form, so mining Stone would give you the Stone block, rather than Cobblestone. This isn’t necessarily mandatory, it just saves soooo much time and resources. Silk Touch is an enchantment you need to have available, it’s just so darn useful.
Basically the Looting of Pickaxes, Shovels and Axes. Fortune grants you multiple drops per block, instead of the usual. It’s actually quite insane when you get a full stack of Coal from one vein, or 10 diamonds from 4 ore blocks. Put simply, it’s the best non-combat enchantment in the game. This is the big daddy, the enchantment you most need on your resource collecting items!
Had to be really, what else even comes close?
The Infinity enchantment gives you unlimited ammo for your bow, so long as you have at least 1 arrow in your inventory. Be honest now, you’re a good player with hundreds of hours in one world, but do you actually have a shed load of arrows? Ah you probably do but this enchantment is still amazing regardless. A bow with unlimited shots that only takes up two inventory slots (the bow and the 1 arrow) makes Infinity the best Minecraft enchantment in the game!
