Minecraft Guide – Every Enchantment Defined

There are over 30 different enchantments in Minecraft, and it can be easy to forget which enchantments go on which types of items, or even which enchantments are out there. This list includes every enchantment available in Minecraft, sorted by what item type you can use it with. We buried our least-favorite enchantments–the ones we won’t be using in this multi-part guide–at the very end.

Note: This guide focuses on the Bedrock version of Minecraft, available on Windows 10, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and mobile.

Check out the rest of our guides on Minecraft enchantment to help you get the most out of all your gear:
