[Some of readers might not know about basic enchanting, this section is for them]

You can ‘enchant’ your weapons, gears, and few items(such as ‘flint and steel’, ‘shear’). You can do that by using an enchanting table and/or using anvil with an enchanting book.

Enchanting using enchanting table –

For crafting an enchantment table, you will need a crafting table(3*3 grid), 4 blocks of obsidian, 2 diamonds, and a book. That’s all you will need to craft an enchanting table.

Arrange the items in the following way to craft it.

To enchant using an enchanting table, you will require Lapis Lazuli.

Anvils may look costly if you do not have an iron farm but they are totally worth it. It can be used to name items, repair damaged weapons, tools, and armory without losing their enchantments and also can be used to enchant items using an enchanted book.

Enchant Command

To use this command, you need to have cheats enabled on your world else it won’t work as this is cheating but cheating is fun some times.

So, before enchanting an item you will have to select it in and keep it in the right hand of your character and then type in this command

/enchant <player name> <Enchantment ID> <Enchantment Level> 

Here /enchant is the command.

Enchantment id is the enchantment you want on your item like Silk touch or Mending.

Enchantment level is the level of enchantment you want like Fire Aspect 2 or Power 4.
