During a game of MCPE, I found that I didn't know how anything worked. So I had a simple question about this that also came from a larger write-ups of questions.

Is it possible to enchant items in MCPE? If so, how do you do it?


Know that this thread is a bit old but yeah, you can now.

Enchanting was added in Alpha 0.12.1 and also brewing, nether, repairing and more.

Alpha 0.12.1 is an update to Minecraft Pocket Edition that added many new things such as the Nether, brewing, enchanting, hunger, weather, and much more ... http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Pocket_Edition_Alpha_0.12.1

To enchant stuff (if you don't know it), you need 2 diamond, 4 obsidian and 1 book.

Then the crafting recipes will automatically show up in MC:PE.


No, enchantments are not available currently.

However, enchantment tables will be added in Alpha 0.12.0, with a possible release date in August, according to the wiki:

Well depends what version you have. If you have 12.0+ then you may enchant. But below I don't think so. To make an enchanting table is extremely expensive. You need two diamonds,obsidian and a book. That's all I remember off the top of my head.
