Minecraft enchanting table

An enchanting table is just used for adding superpowers to your items in Minecraft. Enchantments can be added to weaponsarmor, and other tools.

There must be 15 bookshelves around the enchanting table in order to obtain the maximum enchantment level of 30.

Enchanting in Minecraft is a gamble since you never know all that the enchantment table has to offer unless you are done.

Now put a smile on your face, while you learn the basics of building an Enchantment table, making enchantments, and more tips for the best results.



How To Make An Enchantment Table

Requirements: 1 book, 2 diamonds, and 4 obsidian

  1. Open your crafting table
  2. To make an enchanting table, place 1 book, 2 diamonds, and 4 obsidian in the 3×3 crafting grid. When making an enchanting table, make sure that the book, diamonds, and obsidian are placed in the same pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 book in the middlebox.

What Minecraft Items Can You Enchant?

There are a lot of items you can enchant in Minecraft, but the essentials once are, armor, weapons, books, tools.


How many bookshelves do you need for Level 30?

There must be 15 bookshelves around the enchanting table in order to obtain the maximum enchantment level of 30. It takes 90 planks, 45 leather, and 135 paper to make 15 bookshelves.

Once you have acquired all of these bookshelves, place them around the table as shown in the image below,

Note: you can still enchant items without all the 15 bookshelves




How To Use The Enchanting Table

1. Place the enchantment table down and interact with it. Although the player must have at least the level requirement to get an enchantment, the number of levels that the player is charged is the same as the Lapis Lazuli requirement.


2. place the item you want to enchant in the left slot and the lapis in the right slot.

3. For example, if the third enchantment listed is a level 30-50 enchantment, the player must have at least 30 levels. for me it’s a level 3 enchantment; pay only 3 levels, and 3 Lapis Lazuli.

The level requirement influences the quantity, type, and level of enchantments instilled in the item, with a higher experience level generally resulting in more and/or higher-level enchantments.

Nevertheless, there is a significant random factor, and even a level 30 enchantment (the maximum) doesn’t guarantee more than one enchantment, or even that enchantments are “maximum strength” — a level 30 enchantment can still yield Fortune II or Efficiency III alone, for example.
