There are many Minecraft enchantments to discover, and you should try a combination that suits you and your game style. First, we selected some of the best considerations and listed them here.

Mending (max. Rank 1)

Best applied to: Weapons or resource gathering tools that you frequently use.

Effect: You may have noticed that the tools and weapons in Minecraft wear out and become damaged with repeated use. This enchantment allows the item to use any experience gained to repair itself, so every time you see those green balls produced by killing monsters or mining resources, they will replenish the durability of the enchanted item.

Unbreaking (max. Rank 3)

Best applied to: Weapons, armor, or resource gathering tools that you frequently use.

Effect: Similar to Mending, Unbreaking increases the durability of the items it is applied to. You still need to repair it manually, but wear and tear should take longer.

Fortune (up to level 3)

Best applied to: Pickaxe, shovel, or axe.

Effect: This enchantment will significantly increase the amount of resources that can be collected from a single block. It is especially useful for collecting more rare materials, such as diamonds and even lapis lazuli (all your enchantments require a lot of materials!).

Looting (max. Rank 3)

Best applied to: Sword.

Effect: Similar to the Fortune enchantment, except that it increases the loot that an enemy drops when killed. It should be noted that this will not increase the experience gained.

Sharpness (max. Rank 5)

Best applied to: Sword or axe.

Effect: The sharpness enchantment will increase the melee damage of the weapon. There are special enchants that can increase your damage to certain types of monsters, but sharpening will cause a good overall increase in damage to anything you encounter.

Power (max. Rank 5)

Best applied to: Bow.

Effect: Power enchantment will greatly increase the damage of your arrows. This is very useful if you want to destroy monsters at range.

Protection (max. Rank 4)

Best applied to: Armor.

Effect: As the name suggests, the protection enchantment increases the damage reduction of any armor. There are special enchantments to prevent certain types of damage, but in general, if you don’t have the resources for multiple sets of armor, protection is the best choice.

Efficiency (max. Rank 5)

Best applied to: Pickaxe, shovel, axe.

Effect: The efficiency enchantment increases the gathering speed of the tools it uses. This is useful if you want to save time, but only if you use the tool to collect the right resources. For example, using a pickaxe to collect wood, you will not see any speed gain.
