Enchantments in Minecraft are defined as special bonuses or assets which are able to be applied to weapons, armor, or tools through the use of an enchantment table. If you have enchanted books, you can also do it through the usage of an anvil. Enchanted books are able to be acquired via fishing, trading, finding them in generated structures, or by placing a book in an Enchantment Table.


If a tool or an armor is enchanted, it will shine which much like a potion, with an animated purple effect. It allows the holder and any nearby players to be able to see the item is enchanted. An enchanted item will show any current enchantments and their level of strength on the item (unless the enchantment is limited to level 1) is examined in the inventory menu. If you use the enchantment table method, it will allow you to enchant armor, pickaxes, axes, swords, shovels, bows and armor.

There are three ways that you are able to do to enchant an item in Survival mode. Those are listed below.
