An enchanted mob is a glowing, slightly larger type of mob in Minecraft Dungeons with higher damage resistance and 1 or more additional properties that make them more of a threat to players compared to standard mobs.

Enchanted mobs[]

Enchanted mobs obtain their enchantments from an enchanter, the Arch-Illager, or spawn with enchantments. Passive, such as Sheep, and neutral mobs can also appear with enchantments.

Enchanted mobs have an enchanted glowing appearance. The more enchantments they have, the brighter their appearance. For example, a mob with 3 enchantments appears brighter than a mob with 1 enchantment. The mob also becomes slightly larger when enchanted.

Enchanted mobs are the hero's hunting target for the mystery merchant to unlock more slots in his stall and to change the way his stall looks. Enchanted mobs can overwhelm the hero much faster than mini-boss or boss mobs, especially on Apocalypse Plus threat levels, where they spawn in large numbers, are much faster, and have less stagger durations. On such high difficulties, these mobs are not to be approached recklessly.

The Heads-up display presents the name, enchantments, and enchantment rarity (Common or Powerful) possessed by nearby enchanted mobs. Players can use this as an indication that enchanted mobs are close and plan ahead on how to confront them.

List of mob obtainable enchantments[]

Enchanter can apply Double Damage or Fast Attack onto nearby mobs. Players using the Enchanter's Tome artifact can apply Double Damage, Fast Attack, or Quick onto nearby Summoned mobs, such as the Iron Golem, and players. "Quick" can also be naturally obtained by certain ancient mobs.

See also: Ancient Hunts

Formidable and powerful boss-like variants of Enchanted mobs exclusive to Ancient Hunts, Ancient Mobs are gold glowing mobs, companioned by a group of enchanted minion mobs, possessing their own title name, and themed arena accessed through Hunt Doors.[1] Ancients can possess over 5 enchantments simultaneously, some that would otherwise be player-exclusive, such as Shockwave, and some only available to ancients.
These mobs spawn once the player has interacted with a button within the ancient's arena. Upon the ancient's defeat, a Gilded item, within the ancient's loot pool, of any Rarity is dropped as a reward.

26 different ancient mobs exist within Minecraft Dungeons that each minimum Rune requirements, satisfied by offering and sacrificing a combination of equipment possessing the runes required. Multiple ancient mobs can be fulfilled by a single overall offer Sacrificing Enchantment Points, in addition to equipment, increases the ratio of Ancient Mobs occupying Hunt Doors rather than Gold Rooms.
