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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
