This weapon can be enchanted with Radiance twice.

Enchanting is a mechanic that augments weapons and armor, using Enchantment Points to activate the enchantment, locking-in the choice.

Weapons and Armor each have up to three enchantment slots, with up to three random enchantments choices per slot.
The number of available enchantment slots on collected equipment depends on the Difficulty and the Threat level the player is playing at. [needs testing] Unavailable enchantment slots or enchantment choices cannot be unlocked.

Enchantments behave independently when stacked. A weapon with two Chains III, each having a 30% chance to occur, does not give a 60% chance to occur, but instead a combined 51% chance, including a 9% chance that the effect occurs twice.

Type Tier Total
Common 1 2 3 6
Powerful 2 3 4 9
Gilded Common 2 3 4 9
Gilded Powerful 3 4 5 12

Built-in enchantmentsEdit

When dealing with equipment possessing a built-in enchantment, that enchantment is unavailable as an option to apply onto that particular piece of equipment, even if the built-in enchant is normally stackable. For example, a Hawkbrand never has Critical Hit as an option, a Diamond Pickaxe never has Prospector as an option, a Firebolt Thrower never has Chain Reaction as an option, and so on.

Built-in enchantments are shown as the enchantment icon with an orange border on the equipment's properties list and can be visible in-game through the enchantment notify icon, enchantment effects ,and the Status effect icon relating to the enchantment appears on the Heads-Up Display upon the use of non-enchanted equipment.

Soul EnchantmentsEdit

Enchantments that involve souls occur only on weapons and armor that provide soul gathering naturally, such as the Soul Knife, Soul Bow, or Soul Robe and their respective uniques, not on equipment that has an enchantment built-in that provides soul gathering - Soul Fists, Soul Hunter Crossbow and Verdant Robe being notable examples.

Soul gathering equipment can possess non-soul enchantments the same as regular equipment.

Anima Conduit, Enigma Resonator, and Soul Siphon are Soul enchantments that occur on both melee and ranged weapons. Soul Speed occurs for armor.

Gilded GearEdit

Gilded Gear in the inventory.
What Gilded Gear looks like on the ground when dropped.

Obtainable from defeating Ancient Mobs during Ancient Hunts or though bartering with the Piglin Merchant using Gold, Gilded gear are Weapons and Armors that possess an extra built-in enchantment at tier I, II, or III and costs more Enchantment Points to activate and upgrade the enchantments within the slots. These appear in the inventory with a gold background and a golden tag adjacent to the Rarity. [1] [2].
Gilded gear can be salvaged for Gold rather than the usual Emeralds with regular gear. Ancient Hunts do not allow gilded gear to be used as an offering.

Enchanted MobsEdit

Main articles: Enchanted Mobs and MCD:Ancient Mobs

Enchanted mobs are glowing, slightly larger mobs with 1 or more additional properties that make them more of a threat to players compared to standard mobs. Enchantments can be applied onto mobs from an Enchanter, the Arch-Illager or spawn with enchantments. Passive, such as Sheep, and neutral mobs can also appear with enchantments. Some of these enchantments, such as Heals Allies and Regeneration are exclusive to mobs and not available to players.
