Best Enchantments in Minecraft – Best Armor, Sword, Pickaxe, Trident Enchantments & More!

Our Minecraft Best Enchantments Guide features all the top options for enchanting your Armor, Crossbow, Sword, Pickaxe, Bow, Axe, Shovel, Elytra, Fishing Pole, and even your Trident! If you're looking to get the most out of your enchantments in Minecraft, then we've got all the information you'll need.

Best Minecraft Enchantments

These enchantments can apply to all tools, weapons, and armor. For this reason, and that they are massively convenient when applied, we have marked them as the best overall enchantments in the game.

Best Armor Enchantments in Minecraft

All Armor


Using the right helmet can be exceptionally convenient when if you frequently find yourself in water. Minecraft version 1.17 added Wet Caves to the game, which are caves filled with water. That makes the enchantments listed below far more useful! They don't serve a lot of purpose outside of that, so if you can't get any of the enchantments below, we strongly recommend enchanting your helmet with the enchantments listed in the All Armor section above.



There are few enchantments that you can apply to shields. You can apply the Curse Of Vanishing enchantment, but that only stops other players from picking up the shield if you die. The Mending and Unbreaking enchantments mentioned above will be the best options you have for enchanting this piece of equipment.

Best Tool Enchantments in Minecraft

Axe, Sword, Shovel, Hoe, & Pickaxe

Fishing Rod


As of now, there are no enchantments that are applicable only to Elytra. Curse of Vanishing and Curse of Binding can be applied, but they provide nothing that is directly beneficial to the player using them. We recommend using Mending or Unbreakable on Elytra to decrease the amount of resources used to keep it maintained.

Best Nether Enchantments in Minecraft

These enchantments are essential if you want to go into the Nether, especially if you're expecting a fight!
