Minecraft Dungeons Weapon Enchantment Guide

Which enchantments can you slap on your melee and ranged weapons in Minecraft Dungeons? Let's take a look.

The enchantment system and artifact system give Minecraft Dungeons a unique twist on the ARPG gear affix systems we've come to know and love, and luckily, that unique twist is fairly easy to understand.

Each time you level up, you are granted an Enchantment Point to spend on enchantments for your equipment. Each enchantment can be upgraded to Level 3 for increasingly useful effects.

It's also worth knowing that 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.

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

How to Return Enchantment Points in Minecraft Dungeons

You cannot undo Enchantments placed on gear, but you can salvage the equipment to return the Enchantment Points you spent on them.

You should salvage any gear you're done using, whether weapons or armor. 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.

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!
