Enchantments can make your weapons, armor, and tools more powerful, durable, and effective. But they are difficult to hit, and also in an enchantment table they require experience, so today we show you how to use enchanted books in Minecraft .

How to use Enchanted Books in Minecraft How many types are there?

Enchanted books

Enchanted books are items that allow the player to enchant their tools . Each book has a particular enchantment that can be used on a tool. Before trying to use enchanted books, you should be familiar with the concept of enchantments in general and what they do. This is because weapons and armor sometimes have enchantments .

Enchantment is a mechanic that allows the player to increase the power or effectiveness of a tool, weapon, or armor . The player can find the already enchanted items, or enchant them himself using an enchantment table, or an enchanted book. Logically, enchantments can also be removed from these objects.

How can I use enchanted books in Minecraft?

To use an enchanted book, you need to have two things: the weapon, armor, or tool that you are going to enchant, and an anvil. You must place the anvil on the ground and click on it with the right button (or the button you have selected to “Use” an object). In the anvil interface, you must place the item to be enchanted in one box and the enchanted book in the other.

In the third box, the enchanted tool will appear. Just take it and use it . However, this process does not always work. Some enchantments are only compatible with one group of items. For example, Aquatic Affinity can only be applied to a helmet.

Make sure the enchantment you want to use is compatible with the item you are trying to enchant . To do this you may need to use the Minecraft encyclopedia list. (Please note that the Spanish version is out of date.)

How many enchanted books are there? Where do I find them?

There are 6 ways to get enchanted books. We cannot talk about all of them in detail, but we will summarize each one for you.


The boxes found in dungeons and mansions Forest have a 15% chance of containing an enchanted book. Those of the Desert Temple, 23%; those of the Oceanic Ruins, 21%; those of the Abandoned Mines 14% and those of Looters’ Posts 11%.

The enchanted books that you obtain from these chests have an enchantment that is chosen at random when the structure is generated. This data is only correct for the Java edition at the time of writing. In the Windows 10 version, the forest mansion chests have a 17% chance.

In Jungle Temples and Fortresses you can find enchanted books with a level of 30. The probability varies greatly, but you will almost certainly find one. And once you have many, you should organize your chests in the best possible way.


Every time you cast the hook into the water to fish , there is an 85% chance that you will catch a fish, and a 10% chance that you will catch trash. However, there is a 0.8% chance of getting an enchanted book.


Villagers with the profession of Booksellers (Librarians) can sell enchanted books. But be prepared, because they are very expensive, and you need to have a normal book first.


The Looters appearing as part of an assault on a village, have a small chance to drop level 30 books delighted when they die.

Using a table

One of the most used mechanics when enchanting is to use books to change the enchantment. At the tables , the enchantment you get is random, resetting every time you enchant something.

So players enchant books until they get the enchantment they want. You can use this mechanic to enchant tools with just what you want, if you already have a table. And if you don’t have it, we tell you that it is very easy to make a table of enchantments , and this will be very useful.


“Bartering” is the English name for a mechanic that was introduced in version 1.16 of Minecraft. In the Nether, the Piglins can trade you a gold bar for a variety of things, including enchanted books.

Minecraft is a game widely known for not explaining its mechanics to the player. Therefore, we invite you to continue reading tutorials about the game. And even better: We invite you to continue venturing into the world of Minecraft, so you will become a master in no time.
