Other Information

An enchantment table is required to enchant items and experience is expended when you enchant an item. Upon placing an item in the window, there will be three options with a green number in the corner. The number indicates the required experience level for the enchantment. Choosing one of the three will grant you one of the enchantments above at random. Placing bookshelves around the enchanting table will grant access to higher level enchants. The higher the level, the higher the rank of enchantment.

Enchanted Book

By placing a Book in the Enchantment Table, you can store enchantments for later. Enchanted Books are also found in dungeons, abandoned mineshafts, villages, and strongholds. You can combine Enchanted Books with items with an Anvil.
