How to Repair a Trident in Minecraft

What is broken may never break.

The trident is a powerful weapon in Minecraft and is difficult to come by. The only natural way to obtain them is by killing Drowned. In the Bedrock Edition, there is a 15 percent chance of a Drowned spawning with a trident and an 8.5 percent chance to drop one. In the Java edition, only 6.25 percent of Drowned spawn with a trident.

As a result, every trident you find from Drowned tends to be damaged already, meaning that it won't last long. So you will want to repair your trident. There are a couple of ways you can do this.

You can combine two damaged tridents on a crafting table which will create an undamaged trident but destroy any enchantments on the tridents. You can combine two damaged tridents on a grindstone which will remove any enchantment except for the Curse of Vanishing and Curse of Binding. You can also combine two damaged tridents on an anvil which will preserve the enchantments. Lastly, you can apply the Mending enchantment to a trident.

Tridents have the same durability as an iron sword. It deals nine damage when used as a melee weapon and eight damage when thrown fully charged. An iron sword only deals six damage making the trident a much better and versatile option.
