Minecraft Enchantments

Enchanting your gear is one of the best ways to level up your gameplay. In another post, I explain how to create a thriving village so you can trade for almost everything you want in game.
Librarians trade for enchanted books, which you use on an anvil. You’ll need xp to do this, and the more you enchant, the more xp it requires.

This page is up to date as of the 1.18 Java edition, but may also apply to previous versions and have some crossover with windows and bedrock.
