What each armor enchantment does in Minecraft Dungeons. Get your build on!

While melee and ranged weapons’ enchantments are different in Minecraft Dungeons, you may be happy to know that all armor shares the same pool of enchantments for you to work with so things don’t get too complicated.

You will be granted an enchantment point to spend on enchantments on your weapons or armor each time you level up, allowing you to feel even more powerful with each level advancement.

Each enchantment can be upgraded for increasingly potent effects, up to a third, particularly powerful tier.

A single piece of equipment can have the same enchantment on it twice, or you can have multiple items with the same enchantment. In these situations, the bonuses will stack. Useful!

This guide goes over just armor enchantments. Be sure to check out our similar guide covering weapon enchantments, as well as our Minecraft Dungeons artifacts guide going over artifact effects and locations.

How to Return Enchantment Points in Minecraft Dungeons

You may not be able to undo enchantments placed on gear, but you can salvage the equipment to return the Enchantment Points you spent on them.

Once you switch to a new piece of equipment, salvage your old equipment to get your Enchantment Points back and spend them on your new gear. This means you should be salvaging anything you’ve invested points into and are not using anymore.

All you have to do to salvage your gear and get your Enchantment Points back is:

  1. Select the item that you’re done with in your inventory
  2. Click/Select the big ‘Salvage’ button in the gear info window

Salvaging does destroy the item in question, so be careful you don’t salvage something you still need.

Minecraft Dungeons Armor Enchantments

As with weapon enchantments, armor ones can be invested in up to three times to reach their maximum potential.

In the table below, all three levels’ values are shown for easy planning. The level values are underlined in each instance.

Enchantments that are considered Powerful-tier rather than Common are italicized to help them stand out from the others.
