- The Enchantment Table is a functional block which you can use to enchant armor and tools by spending levels or experiences. You can improve the quality of the enchantments by surrounding the table with 15 book shelves.
Enchantment tables can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.
The enchantment table is 3⁄4 blocks high. Players can walk off its edge when sneaking on it.
They cannot be moved by pistons. If an enchantment table is placed on ice, the player will slide on it as though it is an ice block, just like slabs. The table will enchant all tools and armor except the hoe, shears, flint and steel, lead and horse armor. The hoe and shears cannot be enchanted by the enchantment table.
Standard Galactic Alphabet Edit
The arcane glyphs that float from bookshelves to the enchanting table and the cryptic runes in the enchantment table's interface are written in the Standard Galactic Alphabet, which is a simple alphabet substitution cipher used in the Commander Keen series of computer games.
- The enchantment table actually produces the particles emitted from the bookshelves. These particles originate inside the Enchantment table and are relocated to the bookshelf almost immediately, but travel slow enough to be briefly visible. The particle that enters and leaves the bookshelf is always the same "letter", but the ones traveling into the bookshelves are black.
- Enchantment tables are mostly made of obsidian, and thus have a blast resistance of 6,000 and cannot be destroyed by TNT.
- Enchanting tables are midway between slabs and full blocks height-wise, so they could be potentially used as a TNT cannon's range-amplifier instead of slabs or trapdoors
- When you place a light block (such as glowstone or a lit redstone lamp) and place an enchantment table on it, the light stays.
- When the player is invisible, the enchantment table can still "see" the player and open up.
