An enchanter, also known as a scholar, is an illager and hostile mob that enchants other hostile mobs to make them stronger and more dangerous. Enchanters are found in many missions in Minecraft Dungeons.


Enchanters are magical illagers that have the ability to enchant other mobs to make them stronger. They are seen wearing a wine-colored robe, similar to the evoker, but with more prominent gold stripes, diamond buttons on its shoulders and gold lines near the end of its sleeves, a turban-like hat with a diamond on it, and a cape with a golden outline at its end. It carries a tome which it uses to enchant nearby mobs and control villagers in their hostage and slave operations. It closes its hands like the evoker and illusioner when idle.



  • Enchanter's Tome — meant only to be wielded by enchanters, this artifact can summon powerful enchantments.
  • Soul crossbow — crafted by the mysterious evokers and enchanters of the woodland mansions.


Basic attack

The enchanter hits the hero with its book if the hero gets too close, dealing light damage.


Enchanters enchant other hostile mobs buffing many of their stats. They shoot a magical beam to link one mob at a time, and can enchant up to two mobs at a time. Both mobs involved in the enchantment must be alive and near each other for the enchantment to be sustained; if the enchanter is killed or if the enchanted mob goes too far away from the enchanter, the enchantment ends and the mob returns to normal.
