The first enchantment on our list is the Fire Aspect which is great if you’re willing to set your enemies on fire. The Fire Aspect is also known as one of the most powerful and simplest enchantments in the game.

This enchantment has 4 levels and each level adds 4 seconds of fire to the sword, and the damage also increases as the level of your enchantment goes up.

Keep in mind that not every mob will die in a single hit using this enchantment sword and if you’re a Bedrock edition player then you can use this enchanted sword to light candles, campfires, and activate the TNTs as well.

This Fire Emblem enchantment makes your sword a lot more powerful so you guys can use it against food-based mobs in order to get meat.

2. Sweeping Edge

Next up we have Sweeping Edge which is a Java edition exclusive enchantment and if you’re a Bedrock edition player then you might wanna skip to the next one.

Well, this enchantment doesn’t really add some special features to your game however, it actually improves the overall basic aspect of it.

The Sweeping Edge enchantment makes the basic sword do more damage while performing sweep attacks. I personally recommend you guys use this enchantment in the Nether as fighting multiple mobs at the same time can be a strenuous task but this enchantment will surely help you eliminate them.

Like most of the enchantments, this one also has 3 levels, the first level causes 50% damage, the second one causes 67% and finally the third level causes 75% damage to the enemies. The only downside of this enchantment is that players won’t be able to use any other enchantment with it.

3. Looting


This enchantment will be the best one if you’re looking for higher loot in the game as when you eliminate mobs using this enchanted sword, they will drop much more loot than usual.

One thing that I personally love about this enchantment is that players can get rare items using the Looting enchanted sword.

There are three levels of this enchantment as well where the loot that the enemy drops increases with each level.

4. Mending


If you have a damaged sword or you haven’t applied unbreaking to your sword then this is where the mending enchantment will be your best friend as it will restore all the reduced durability of your sword and will help you deliver a good amount of damage to your opponent.

Even tho it only has one level, some players still consider this to be more powerful than unbreaking, well you guys should definitely use this enchantment, and let us know your thoughts in the comments down below.

5. Unbreaking


This enchantment is known as Unbreaking and players can apply this enchantment on swords as well as any other weapon with durability.

Unbreakable enchantment increases the overall durability of the swords and your weapons last longer than usual. It has two levels and if you’re looking to increase the durability of your weapons then you should definitely try out this enchantment.

6. Knockback


You might wonder what knockback is. Well, it basically is the effect through which the mobs are pushed back once you hit them with your sword or any other weapon in the game.

This enchantment increases the knockback effect by a lot which means that any of the mobs you hit will get knocked back up to six blocks in just a single hit. If you’re a Java edition player then you can even knock back armor stands using this enchantment.

7. Sharpness


This enchantment does exactly what its name suggests, it increases the sharpness of the sword and since the sharpness of the sword doesn’t affect Minecraft this enchantment basically increases the amount of damage it deals to the opponents.

There are over 5 levels of this enchantment and players can use the enchanted book to apply any level of sharpness to all types of swords in Minecraft.

8. Smite


You guys can consider this enchantment as the counterpart of the sharpness enchantment as it also increases the damage your sword deals to the mobs.

However, keep in mind that the increased damage will only work on undead mobs and we will list down all the undead mobs for you guys so you won’t face any issues while playing.
