Altar Enchanting offers a complete overhaul of the vanilla enchanting system in three parts: New Enchanting Process, Custom Enchantments, and Legendary Loot.

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!

This datapack also 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.

NEW: Six custom enchantments have been added to the game to increase the functionality of shields, battle axes, and boots.

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!


Altar Recipes and More Details:

See the Altar Enchanting Overhaul Guide.



Recommended Datapacks:

For non-custom enchantments, the altar enchanting mechanic creates lots of low level enchanted books. To make combining these into high level books easier, I recommend my datapack Anvil Cost Doesn't Accumulate

Winter's Essentials offers several balance changes and tweaks to the vanilla game that make it less tedious and more fun.

As described above, the altar is just any lapis floor.

Does this datapack have any issues with running on a server? I've installled it on a paperspigot server I manage and it doesn't seem to function at all.

I've used it on many vanilla servers and it has no problems. I'm not familiar with how paperspigot may change commands and datapacks though.

How would one add another method of altar enchants?

I'm trying to insert a method of letting the player make a legendary book (one lapis, one book, and one enchanted golden apple for balance) that way I can do better chest loot datapacks and still potentially earn or "find" the stuff for a legendary book.

I've tried recreating the detecting items on the lapis mcfunction and the actual enchanted book creation mcfunction, but it's still not producing the result in-game. So may I ask how did you do it?


EDIT: Holy heck I figured it out. I forgot to edit the tick mcfunctions so that it actually checks for the regular book. It pops it out in a weirdish name but it totally works!!!

Gosh I love this datapack now!

Is it possible to make it so one can config whether using the altar system uses 1-3 levels? That’s my only issue with this pack, it makes it far superior to the regular enchanting system otherwise. Unless I did something wrong when testing it out, I don’t like how it costs no exp to use, just a specific item. It would be really well balanced otherwise.

If it's possible, it's far beyond my datapacks skill. But in playtesting, the amount of experience it takes to combine all the level 1 books you get exceeds the levels it would take to use the normal enchanting system, so in my opinion it is balanced other than being less random and irritating.
