Requiring a whole block of gold/iron/diamond seems a lot. An ingot would work better. Why would someone use a whole block of diamond to upgrade a iron pick to a diamond pick when they could make three diamond picks instead?

I'm not trying to be mean, I am asking a genuine question.

I think the point of this is to save the name, attributes and enchantments. If you don't have any of those, you'll be better off making a new one.

When upgrading the gear your enchantments, name and tags are kept, so if you have spent a lot of resources on getting a rare enchantment on your item, the extra cost is worth it!
Or when you find a great pickaxe in an end city, but it is iron..

This data packs also works great in conjunction with other data pack like Mob Captains, which add items with enchantments that are unable to be achieved through vanilla means.

And also I don’t think a block is too much considering that a chestplate consists of 8 ingots.

Thanks for the comment! :)

I hadn't thought about it, personally I've never enchanted anything besides diamond gear. Mob captains would definitely work with this.
