Minecraft Dungeons: How to enchant your weapons and armour - Tutorial on upgrading your gear, the best weapons and more!

Minecraft is one of the most influential video games in history.

The series is changing gaming once again by shaking things up with Minecraft Dungeons.

One of the key features of Minecraft Dungeons is enchanting, which can help you along finding the class you want to play in this intense dungeon crawler.

Let's go over how to enchant your gear, and what gear is best in Minecraft Dungeons.

How to use enchantment points and upgrade your gear!

The bread and butter of progression in Minecraft Dungeons are your enchantment points.

Kill mobs, complete levels, conquer questlines and you level up - this will provide you with enchantment points which you can spend on upgrading not just your weapons but also your armour.

This is where the fun begins.

Minecraft Dungeons gives you free rein on customisation of your gear! Here's how you do it.

  • Level up by completing quests, killing mobs, replaying levels and generally progressing through the game
  • Bring up your inventory screen - you should be prompted when you level up and gain enchantment points
  • Select the 'swag' you want to upgrade from everything you have collected on your travels and press 'Y' or 'Triangle' on your controller to view the enchantment options
  • Select the enchantment and press 'A' or 'X'. This will spend the points and add the enchantment to the piece of equipment!
