Top 10 Best Minecraft Enchantments

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!

Note that Mending is an enchantment that should be placed on any item you want to never break. There’s no discussion about that, which is why it’s not on the list.

 


10. Loyalty

Specific to the Trident, this enchantment returns the Trident after throwing it. Picking up a thrown weapon can be a nightmare depending on the circumstance, especially when it lands in a completely difficult place to reach.

Even just for killing mobs from range, your throwing rate will drastically increase. Combined with other Trident enchantments, you can acquire a formidable weapon.

 


9. Lure

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. Multishot

Of the many amazing enchantments available to the Crossbow, Multishot is the best. Upon firing, the Crossbow will shoot 3 arrows in a cone, rather than the single arrow. It’ll also consume only 1 arrow, although it does consume 3 durability.

For taking down groups of spread out enemies, no other weapon enchantment works as well as this!

Note, you can’t have the Multishot and Piercing enchantments at the same time. So you will have to choose between the two.

 


7. Sharpness

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!

 


5. Unbreaking

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!

 


4. Looting

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.

 


2. Fortune

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!

 


1. Infinity

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!

        I know its a bit late, but after a while, the bow will get too expensive to repair. I’d personally choose mending over infinity, even though infinity is a cool enchantment. Mending is just more practical… i mean, just get a chicken farm and a fortune 3 shovel and your fine for flint and feathers. Mending assures you that your bow will never break/get too expensive to repair.

      Commas are punctuation not language so it is YOU who needs to learn your language. For someone who just misused punctuation at the least a half a dozen in ONE sentence, you should not be talking.

      ‘Just want to say that I am so sick of the comma misuasage found within your post! Please… You literally use it every single day!’ – would be the correct version. You missed capital letters. There should be at least a two space gap inbetween a full stop and the first character of your next sentence. An ellipsis consists of 3 dots / full stops, not 6… Lastly, you should never write in caps lock… Who are you?

    I really feel like mending should be on here. It’s better than unbreaking, because if you use it right, it gives your stuff infinite durability.

      Well the problem with Mending is if you don’t collect XP a lot it’s worthless and the more enchantments on the item the harder it is to repair with a material because of the higher XP cost

        Yeah, but you have to take into account that soon enough, your tools get more and more expensive to repair until the game literally wont let you repair them. It should really be #1, because your armor will never break unexpectedly when your fighting mobs, your weapons/tools will be repaired with Xp gained, and it assures you that you’ll never lose your items. Infinity, however, while being worth it initially, you cant have mending AND infinity, and i’d for sure choose mending over infinity anyday.

        What im trying to say is, mending lets you forget about repairing, and eventually losing your items, and lets you focus on using them. Plus, if your choosing infinity over mending, legit just get a mending bow, a chicken farm, and a fortune 3 shovel. Near infinite arrows. Also, (And this is in no way related) but you can sell flint to fletching villagers for emeralds, basically turning your fortune 3 shovel and some useless gravel into a money making machine.

    I agree that mending should be included and certainly beats unbreaking. Mending enchantment saves way more ingots and/or diamonds by only needing xp to repair armor.

    Fire aspect is not good because mobs that attack you can light you on fire as well besides mending is much better than unbreaking solve the exp problem with a endermen farm

    Uhh I think mending is actually the best enchantment. I mean it’s not useful on axes, shovels, hoes (ha), and armor. But great on pickaxes, fishing rods, and even Tridents! Every orb of xp you collect with a mending tool out repairs that tool. How neat!

    I don’t know if this is outdated but what about loyalty for a trident? It brings it back to you when throwing it.

    So I have one serious issue with this list, and one serious issue with the comments about infinity vs mending

    Firstly with the list, I’ll take luck of the sea 3 (LoTS3) over lure 3 any day, although having both is nice, there are PLENTY of other options for food, LoTS3 allows me to fish up enchanted books and enchanted rods/bows fairly frequently compared to maybe once or twice in an hour of fishing without LoTS, I’ve gotten FOUR mending books in a few days worth of fishing, with 0 risk compared to caving and exploring unknown and hazardous locations, plus by fishing up other enchanted rods and combining on an anvil I have a LoTS3, lure 3, unbreaking 3, mending fishing rod that heals itself as I fish and gets me treasure, I also have a maxed infinity box because of this (power 5, punch 2, infinity 1, flame 2, unbreaking 3)

    For the reason stated above about easily being able to get new bows and combine them on anvils I’m gonna say infinity over mending, just in my course of day to day fishing I get enough bows to make a new max bow every day if I wanted, and the xp to do it, while fishing up nice book enchants, not to mention if you put “enchanted arrows” (arrows applied with a lingering potion) in your offhand with infinity, they too become infinite (at least in win 10 ver)

    For those reasons
    LoTS3 > Lure 3
    infinty>mending
    in my opinion

      I’m hugely into fishing and have a Lure 2, LotS 3 rod. If I had to choose one to keep, Lure would be the choice.

      The Luck of the Sea enchantment still makes enchanted books/bows incredibly rare but the Lure means I have a chance a LOT faster

    You don’t need either to start with. With a hole directly above me in a 2 story building with an ‘chimney’ with over hangs to prevent spiders getting in I fished up my first rod with mending, LotS 2 and Lure 2 in about 20 minutes of AFK fishing. Then just let it work all night. The mending is critical to AFK fishing. Since you catch a fish get xp and boom rod gets healed (slowly if it has a durability greater than 1). A full night of AFK I come back to level 42 and 3 double boxes of stuff. Enough to get me LotS3, Lure3, Unbreakable 3, and mending on three rods (in case I die). I use it when I’m at work now usually.
