Natural equipment

ENCHANTER – Recognizable by their strange hats and the magical tomes they clutch in their mottled hands, enchanters can boost the ability of other nearby mobs by creating a magical link to them. The link will be broken if you defeat the enchanter, so take them down first before the other mobs.

An enchanter is a hostile illager that can be found within the various missions of Minecraft Dungeons.


The Enchanter.

The common garb that enchanters wore on a daily basis consisted of a wine-colored robe and cape, each outlined with a golden trim. much like that of an evoker, though the robe also had diamonds engraved into the shoulders. In addition, enchanters each possessed a turban-like hat with a diamond in the center and carried around an enchanter's tome to enchant nearby mobs; such as controlling villagers in their hostage and slave operations"Untitled" . . They closes their hands much like evokers and illusioners when standing 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.


Enchanter Walk.

Enchanters are relatively weak, non-combative, and slow. Instead they mostly cast spells to make any allies stronger.

Basic attack

Enchanter Basic Attack.

Enchanters hit and chase a target with their tome if they get too close (2~3 blocks), dealing light damage.

Enchanter Enchance.

Enchanters enchant up to two nearby mobs individually, increasing their stats and applying the Double Damage or Fast Attack enchantments onto them. An enchanted beam links an enchanter with a targets. If a target strays too far or an enchanter is defeated, the enchantment ends on that target. Enchanters cannot enchant other enchanters. Enchanting geomancers and iceologers doubles the damage of their geomancer bombs and ice chunks.
