Using Mending Books in Minecraft.

Minecraft is a very popular game that relies heavily on creativity, but it also has a very complex system of gathering resources and fighting monsters. One of the most useful enchantments in the game is Mending. It works on every version of Minecraft and on every platform available. The full list of items that can be repaired is down below.

How does Mending Enchantment work?

It is important to remember that every tool and weapon in the game has limited durability. Mending Enchantment is the solution to that problem. You are able to keep your favorite items forever with the right use of this enchantment. It allows you to automatically repair your pickaxe, sword, or shovel just by gaining XP (experience).

The easiest way to repair your item is to put it in your right hand and then go mobbing or mining for ores. This way you can mend the tool of your choosing very efficiently.
