Minecraft is a game that has captured the hearts of millions of gamers worldwide. One of the game's most exciting features is enchanting, which allows players to imbue their tools, weapons, and armor with magical powers. With the release of Minecraft 1.20, players continue to have access to several enchantment options, each with its unique benefits and uses.
In this blog post, we'll be exploring some of the different enchantment options available in Minecraft 1.20 and how they can be used to enhance your gameplay.
1. Curse of Binding
The Curse of Binding is an enchantment that is applied to armor including other items that can be placed in the armor slots such as jack o lanterns or mob heads. When an item with Curse of Binding is used by a player that player then cannot remove the item. This can be especially frustrating for a player if they put on the jack o lantern as it restricts visibility. The only way to get rid of an item with the curse of binding is to switch to creative mode or to die in game.
2. Feather Falling
The Feather Falling enchantment is another enchantment available in Minecraft 1.20. It reduces the damage taken when falling, which can be useful for avoiding fall damage or getting to hard-to-reach areas. Feather Falling can only be applied to boots, and the higher the level of enchantment, the higher the fall a player can survive.
3. Curse of Vanishing
The Curse of Vanishing is an enchantment that affects items a player is carrying when they die. Normally carried items will fall to the ground where they can be picked up again if the player gets back to that location quickly after respawning. With the Curse of Vanishing all items will be lost.
The Piercing enchantment is an upgrade to the existing arrow-piercing enchantment. It can be applied to crossbows and allows arrows to pierce through multiple targets, making it an excellent option for crowd control or taking out multiple enemies at once. Unlike normal arrows, piercing arrows can be retrieved after firing.
The Mending enchantment is an enchantment that can be applied to any item. When using Mending, items in the inventory or armor slots or held can be mended by experience orbs picked up by the player. Which item is mended is random for each experience orb. This enchantment is useful to keep a player's inventory items at full strength.
The Riptide enchantment is an upgrade to the existing trident enchantment that allows players to launch themselves forward through water or rain. When a player with Riptide throws a trident while standing in water or rain, they will be launched in the direction the trident was thrown. This enchantment is useful for traveling quickly across bodies of water.
7. Soul Speed II
The Soul Speed II enchantment is an upgrade to the existing Soul Speed enchantment. It can be applied to boots and allows players to walk faster on soul sand, soul soil, and soul blocks. This enchantment is useful for players who want to navigate through the Nether quickly. Soul Speed is a treasure enchantment that can be found on enchanted boots bartered from Piglins or in Chests in Bastian Remnants.
In conclusion, Minecraft 1.20 continues the use of enchantment options that players can use to enhance their gameplay. From protecting valuable items to traveling quickly across water, these enchantments provide players with ways to explore and enjoy the game. Whether you're a seasoned Minecraft player or new to the game, experimenting with these enchantments is sure to add a new level of excitement to your gameplay.
