Best Armor Enchantments in Minecraft

Here are some of the best general armor enchantments in Minecraft

If you are looking for the best armor enchantments in Minecraft, we recommend starting the following basic enchantments that can be enchanted to all armor pieces in the game.

  • Projectile Protection
  • Protection
  • Fire Protection
  • Blast Protection
  • Unbreaking

Overall, if you want to enchant armor, you should pick one of the enchantments listed above, preferably their higher-level versions, and place them on one of the armor pieces you have.

This is because certain enchantments are incompatible with others, so you will want to spread the enchantments out to get the most bonuses and protection from different types of damage. 

Each of the protection enchantments gives the player a buff and damage reduction for its respective damage type. So for the projectile enchantment, it reduces the amount of damage you take from arrows, fire protects from fire damage, and blast reduces damage from explosions.

Because of this, it's ideal to have one of each enchantment on one of your armor pieces to lower the amount of damage you take from a particular type of damage. 

You can also get special enchants depending on the armor piece; for example helmets can get respiration, and boots can get feather falling. 

That being said. If you want to learn which are the best enchantments for specific armor pieces, check out the guides listed below.
