This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft an enchanted wooden sword with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, you can add powers to a wooden sword by enchanting it. Enchantments can be added to items using an enchanting table, anvil, or game command.

Let’s explore how to make an enchanted wooden sword using an enchanting table.

Required Materials to make an Enchanted Wooden Sword

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft an enchanted wooden sword:

3 Lapis Lazuli
1 Wooden Sword

Enchantments for Wooden Sword

In Minecraft, you can enchant a wooden sword with the following enchantments:

Enchantment Description
Bane of Arthropods Increases attack damage against arthropods
Curse of Vanishing Cursed item will disappear after player dies

Knockback Increases knockback dealt (enemies repel backwards)
Looting Increases amount of loot dropped when mob is killed

Steps to Enchant the Wooden Sword

1. Open the Enchanting Table

First, open your enchanting table so that you have the Enchant menu that looks like this:

2. Enchant the Wooden Sword

In the Enchant menu, place the wooden sword in the first box. Then place 3 lapis lazuli in the second box.

TIP: In Creative mode, you do not need to place the lapis lazuli in the second box.

Once you have placed your wooden sword and lapis lazuli in the two boxes, you will see the enchantment slots display up to 3 enchantment options. Each enchantment will display a number on the right which is the number of experience levels that you must have to unlock and view the enchantment (this is not the cost of applying the enchantment).

In this example, the first enchantment is unlocked if you have 4 experience levels, the second one is unlocked if you have 11 experience levels, and for the third enchantment you need 30 experience levels to unlock it.

The higher the experience points required to unlock the enchantment, the better the enchantment. If you don’t have enough levels, you can always earn more experience points by killing mobs or using the /xp command.

TIP: If you hover over the slot, you will see the name of the enchantment and the cost.

When you hover over the third enchantment, it says Smite IV and the cost of the enchantment is 3 lapis lazuli and 3 enchantment levels (ie: levels on your experience bar). Smite IV is one of the 3 enchantments that you can select from the enchanting table.

Select the enchantment that you wish to apply to the wooden sword.

Once you have selected an enchantment, your lapis lazuli and experience points will be spent and the wooden sword will glow purple. You can hover over the enchanted sword to see its new powers.

TIP: Quite often the enchanting table will add more than just the one enchantment originally selected. So you might end up with an item that is enchanted with 2 or 3 enchantments (or maybe even 4 enchantments)!

The wooden sword is now an enchanted wooden sword and you can move it back into your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made an enchanted wooden sword in Minecraft!

Attack Damage and Durability

Attack damage is the amount of damage the item will deal when attacking a mob.

Durability represents how long the item will last. For tools, weapons and transportation, durability is the number of useful actions before the item is destroyed. For armor items, durability is the number of hits (that can be blocked by armor) before the item is destroyed. So the higher the durability number, the longer the item will last.

The following table shows the attack damage and durability for each weapon in Minecraft:

Name Attack Damage Durability
Netherite Sword 8 2031
Diamond Sword 7 1561
Bow <varies> 384
Crossbow <varies> 326
Iron Sword 6 250
Trident 9 250
Stone Sword 5 131
Wooden Sword 4 59
Golden Sword 4 32
