Minecraft Tutorial: How to Make an Enchantment Table

Learn how to make an enchantment table in Minecraft with this gameplay tutorial.


All right, Minecraft is finally released, so now we get all kinds of cool stuff like "Enchanting". So, what I'm going to show you is how to make the first step, an enchanting table. So, I'm putting in twice as much as I need here because I'm going to make two. So now I have two enchanting tables. Using them is actually really simple. Drop them down there, and you've got this cool book which will face you wherever you go. And then, you take a took that you want to enchant, and just drop it in here, and then this will tell you what enchantments you have. There's only one catch. This is the Standard Galactic Alphabet, and you probably can't read it. And even if you could, it just translates into a bunch of random words that are strung together. And there's a bunch of jokes in there, and you can it too, you can edit the games files to change it to English. Anyway, this is going to be how much your enchantment will cost. So this is level one, level one and level four, and it will put a random attribute onto that enchantment. As you can see, I've got a whole bunch of levels to play with. So, I'm going to show you how to make stronger enchantments.

So, as you can see, you drop it in between all these bookcases, and the more bookcases that are around, the more powerful your enchantments are going to be. This arrangement is actually the strongest arrangement of bookcases you can have. There's 30 bookcases, five block square with a two block opening obviously, and if you put anymore around, they won't affect it. They have to be within this range. And as you can see, if you need to get a lower level enchantment, you can actually just drop torches down, and if there's anything in between, it's actually going to lower the level of the enchantment table.

So, here we got three, four and eight, and if we get rid of these, whoops sorry, get rid of these, goes up, now it's four, 19 and six. And then each time you drop this in, it's actually just going to keep going up higher. I'm sorry, it's not going to keep going up higher, it's going to change, give you random ones every time. So as you can see, they vary a lot. But if you say are at level 20, you could just put torches there or you could keep going until you get a lower level spell.

Anyway, so let's try one of these. I'm going to click a bunch here. Oh I missed a 39, 42 perfect. So, here's my level 42 diamond axe. These stats that are on here are going to be completely random. So, you don't know what you're going to get. Efficiency and unbreaking, three. I'm going to do another video that goes into what all the enchantments do. But for now, that's the basics you need to know.
