Enchantment tables in Minecraft are made by combining diamonds, obsidian, lapis lazuli, and a book.
Enchantment tables give your gear magical buffs, such as increased durability.
Enchanted weapons and armor are some of the best gear in all of Minecraft.
For as simple as Minecraft seems when you first start — punch a tree, craft, repeat — you’ll eventually reach a point when things get more complicated, and more fantastical. Think magic portals, deadly dragons, glowing pyramids, and more.
You even have the power to use magic yourself through the enchantment table item (also known as the “enchanting” table). The enchantment table can enhance your weapons, armor, and other gear with magical upgrades. For instance, some spells make your tools work faster and last longer, while others will protect you.
Here’s what you’ll need to make an enchantment table, and how to get the most out of it.
How to make an enchantment table in Minecraft
Creating an enchantment table in Minecraft requires one book, two diamonds, and four blocks of obsidian; powering the table will also require lapis lazuli.
To get a book
1. Gather leather. Leather can be acquired by killing cows.
2. Gather sugar cane – found near water in a swamp or desert biome. Once you have your sugar cane, place the pieces in equal amounts along one horizontal row in the crafting area, and grab the paper that’s created.
Sugar cane, which looks a bit like bamboo shoots, can be found near water.
3. Now, take your leather and three pieces of paper to create a book. You can arrange them in any four blocks in the 3×3 crafting table area, as long as each piece of paper is separate.
You’ll only need one piece of leather, but three pieces of paper.
Quick tip: Cows are generally found in grasslands.
Gather diamond, obsidian, and lapis lazuli
The best way to find diamond, obsidian, and lapis lazuli is by mining. This can take some time and you’ll want to bring torches, food, weapons, and a bucket of water with you.
Once you’ve got your diamonds — you’ll need at least two — find a pool of standing lava and pour your bucket of water into it. This will create obsidian, which you’ll need at least a diamond pickaxe to mine. You’ll need at least four blocks of obsidian.
You’ll get an achievement for mining obsidian.
