If you're like me, you find the vanilla enchantment system too tedious and random. Looking for a good solution? Well look no further!

Altar Enchanting allows you to enchant books using magic ingredients and a lapis lazuli altar! Simply throw down an unenchanted book, a lapis lazuli, and a magic ingredient of your choice on top of a lapis floor. The datapack will transform these ingredients into one enchanted book! I've worked hard to balance the ingredients for vanilla survival: the best enchantments require rare ingredients that will take an adventure to collect! The less versatile enchantments, on the other hand, will be easy to make with common ingredients everyone has laying around in a chest. Each book enchanted at an altar will have a low level enchantment, which can be upgraded by combining two of the same type of book in an anvil!



Additionally, this mod now adds rare legendary loot that pushes Minecraft's enchantments past their limits for some truly powerful gear. These can be found in stronghold libraries, woodland mansions, and end cities, with each structure having better loot than the last. All enchantments have been tested to be a reasonable addition to vanilla survival that adds a bit of fun to your end game without completely breaking balance.



So, say good bye to grinding for hours for a chance at good enchantments... take control of what enchantments you imbue on your gear with Altar Enchanting!

Legendary Altar Enchantment Recipes




The altar enchanting mechanic creates lots of low level enchanted books. To make combining these into high level books easier, I recommend the datapack "Anvil Mending - anvil repair costs always reset to zero" !

I tried the looting 5 but when I threw a golden apple with a diamond sword with a book and a lapis lazuli on a lapis lazuli block it gave me a looting 1 and didn't use the diamond sword. Where are we supposed to find a legendary book?

Hi, I go into detail in the legendary description but the legendary books are rare endgame loot found in Stronghold ibraries and End Cities. It'll specifically say "Legendary book" on it. I believe it would be too overpowered if you could get those enchantments with just a golden apple and lapis.

so this means that we have to beat the ender dragon to get legendary books?

Legendary netherite gear can be found in end cities rarely. Legendary books can only be combined with diamond gear, generally, but you should be able to convert that diamond gear into netherite the normal way with a smithing table. Let me know if it doesn't work.

Apparently Minecraft had a hard-coded system that prevents you from applying level X enchantments to items.

I've reworked the legendary book recipes so now they give you the weapon/item itself rather than an enchanted book with the enchantment.



Thanks for reporting this bug to me!

It doesn't currently because some of the altar enchanting recipes use new items like Amethyst Shards and Lightning Rods. It also uses new internal functions from 1.17.

An altar can be as small as one block of lapis on the ground. placing your ingredients on top of any lapis block or blocks will transmute the items into enchanted items.
