When it comes to rare weapons the trident is near the top of the list of what you can acquire in Minecraft. Besides the fact that the weapon cannot be acquired by normal means, its enchantments are also among some of the most unique that you can use.
Here in this article, we shall cover how you can gain enchantments for your trident and which enchantments stand above the rest in terms of quality.
A trident is a rare item that cannot be crafted at all. The only way to gain a trident is through killing a drowned, for they are the only ones that hold such an item. To find a Drowned, you are going to have to search through bodies of water in order to kill these mobs so that they could possibly drop your coveted items.
Ocean Biomes are your best chance of searching for these creatures, for it is here that they will be the most plentiful. If you want to increase your chances of getting a trident from these creatures then it’s recommended that you have the looting enchantment to boost that chance up by 1% with every level of said enchantment.
Once you have gained your weapon of choice it is then time to get the enchantments that would best suit such a weapon. There are multiple avenues for you to choose from in terms of how to find or gain the enchantments that you want.
Using a fishing rod with the luck enchantment could be a good avenue to find what you are looking for. Getting lucky with the random chests that you pilfer through can also be a good way to find the enchanted book that you seek, though it could be a longshot. If you are set in searching for chests in hopes that they have what you are looking for, looking in ocean biomes could be your best bet, as they have a higher chance of carrying rare chests with water-related enchantments.
If none of this can work for you, the easiest alternative and path before you would be the most sensical one if you have leveled up your character enough. The option I speak of is the enchanting table. If you are above level 30, you could have a wealth of enchantments for your trident available to you if you have some lapis lazuli as well. From there it’s all about placing your trident in the enchantment table and working from there to put a wealth of enchantments within it.
Here is a list of enchantments that work best with the trident.
Despite only being catered to those who are primarily adventuring in water, there is no doubt that the trident is a very useful weapon that when boosted by enchantments, becomes a lethal weapon everyone would want their hands on. Just be sure to level yourself level 30 so you can make it easier on yourself to acquire these enchantments in the first place.
