Enchanted books are special books in Minecraft that allow players to apply certain powerups to their gear. These are some of the most used items in the game as it helps players accurately enchant their gear according to their needs.
Books can be obtained in various ways, such as enchanting normal books on enchanting tables, trading or bartering, chest loot, or fishing. Treasure enchantments are special powerups that can only be obtained in the form of books, making these items quite important in the game.
Reasons why players should use enchanted books in Minecraft
Get specific enchantment
When players apply powerups with an enchanting table, they don't know which enchantment they will get, as it is completely random. Most of the time, they might get something they do not need, making it difficult to get specific powerups.
This can be countered by finding villagers and placing a lectern to employ them as librarians. These types of villagers can occasionally give certain enchanted books for a certain amount of books and emeralds.
Players can break and place the lectern to keep changing the trade list until they find the desired book. Once they find a particular enchantment, they can trade with the villager.
There are certain enchantments that cannot be found in an enchanting table, hence players will have to find them in the wilderness. These can only be found in the form of books.
Enchantments like mending, frost walker, soul speed, curse of binding and vanishing are treasure enchantments and can only be obtained in the form of a book.
Combining multiple books
After players apply a higher level of enchantment on a gear, they may also get one or two bonus enchantments. However, they might not be exactly what the players wanted. Whereas, if players combine enchanted books, they can get what they need.
Players can combine these books to get one strong book that they can apply on an item in one go.
