Enchanting Minecraft Tools and Armor, and Crafting Anvils

Enchanting Minecraft Tools and Armor, and Crafting Anvils

Enchantments in Minecraft come in low to high power levels and require more Experience points and bookshelves. To reach the higher levels of Enchantments, you need to surround 15 bookshelves near your enchantment table, even though the bookshelves need not be connected.

Steps for enchanting a tool or armor

After constructing an enchantment table, Have you constructed the enchantment table? Now, check how to enchant a tool or armor:

1. Right-click the enchantment table to open up your enchanting screen.

2. The magical enchanting screen will show an empty place where you can place items and three buttons.

3. Choose the tool or armor or other items (like a book) to be enchanted. Though hoes, shears, and horse armor cannot be enchanted on a table.

4. Power the enchantment table with lapis lazuli. The latest version of Minecraft wants you to first power your enchantment table with lapis lazuli. If you haven't done so, just place lapis lazuli in the second block on the enchantment table. Check the numbers on the right and place the same amount of lapis lazuli on the enchantment table.

Then you have three options, displaying only the Experience points required for the spell, and, by moving your mouse over the option, one of the enchantments that you are guaranteed to get, with a one, two, or three as your price. In case you have powered up with any other enchantment, you won't get any indication or sign, however.

5. Choose one of the three options randomly.

The three random options are labeled using a special language. Here, the characters are called "runes". But even when ciphered, the combination of runes doesn’t disclose the enchantment. The higher the level option, the higher-level enchantment you will receive. To know what the item was enchanted with, mouse over the item in your inventory, and the enchantment will appear under the item name.

Like most other players, you can also enchant a book (in case you don't know much about the problem around) and then use the book on an anvil to perform a specific enchantment on the desired item.
