1.3 Primer: Enchanting

Looking to get into enchanting now that 1.3 will make it much easier? Looking for a specific enchantment and not sure which level you should enchant with? Well then I've got you covered! I've done the math for you.

Here's a list of best probability levels per enchantment. Probabilities are done with diamond equipment (sans bows) and using any other material will alter the statistics.

Item
Enchantment : Level : Probability
My personal notes.



Bows
Power IV : 30 : 52%
Punch II : 30 : 17%
Flame : 30: 40%
Infinity : 30 : 18%

Best Bow level use to be 40, as you can see it has been changed to the max. Your best chance to get a bow without Power is at level 20 when only 4 out of 5 bows will have a form of the Power ability.

Axes/Shovels/Picks
Efficiency IV: 30 : 64%
Unbreaking III: 30 : 62%
Fortune III: 30 : 20%
Silk Touch: 27 : 18%

At level max level for tools your chances for 2 enchantments are 45% and 3 enchantments are 25% which still leaves a 30% chance for only one enchantment. Also note that Efficiency V is no longer available.

Swords
Sharpness IV: 30 : 16%
Bane of Arthropods V: 30 : 2%
Fire Aspect II: 30 : 28%
Knockback II : 30 : 50%
Looting III: 30 : 14%

Smite is not available in the current snapshot. Also note that 15% level 30 enchants will be only Knockback II. Unless you are specifically going for Looting III or Fire Aspect II the best sword enchanting levels are 25 and 26 which minimizes the chances for Bane of Arthropods IV taking the Sharpness slot. It also reduces the Knockback II only chance to 12.5% and still gives you the best shot for Looting II and a decent shot for either of the Fire Aspects.

Chestplate and Leggings
Protection IV : 30 : 20%
Fire Protection IV : 30 : 10%
Blast Protection IV: 30 : 8%
Projectile Protection IV: 27: 25%

Note that all Protection encompasses all things that specific protection do. Best level to enchant is 25 which gives you a 45% chance of getting Protection III while minimizing getting a specific protection.

Boots
Same as chest plates and leggings but also with:
Feather Falling IV : 26 : 66%

26 is the obvious level to enchant boots as it not only gives you the best chance for Feather Falling IV but also gives you a 44% chance of getting Protection III.

Helmets
Same as chest plates and leggings but also with:
Aqua Affinity : 30 : 47%
Respiration III : 30 : 45%

If you only care about a water helm then go for 30. If you want to try and squeeze in another protection then level 28 is your goal. Level 28 offers a 45% for aqua Affinity and a 36% chance for Respiration III while still giving you a decent (36%) shot at Protection III.
