When executing the following command, I get the error "Data tag parsing failed: unbalanced quotation"

/give @p leather_helmet 1 0 {display:{Name:"Nightslash Helm",Lore:["Legendary helmet found only in a secret hideout."]},ench:[{id:0,lvl:9999},{id:1,lvl:99999},{id:2,lvl:99999},{id:3,lvl:999999},{id:4,lvl:999999},{id:5,lvl:99999},{id:6,lvl:999},{id:7,lvl:99}],Unbreakable:1}

I don't see why the command would be wrong. What should I change for this error to go away?

  • Testing this command in Minecraft 1.8.8/vanilla gives me the correct item. Make sure that you copy/pasted the right command and that you did not leave errand characters in the command block.

    I think this question should be closed, because the problem can not be reproduced.

If you're using standard Minecraft chat for this, it's not going to work, due to the character limit of the chat.

You'll have to run this command in a command block, that has a far, far higher limit.
