I am looking for a list of chests that are able to have mending (either on an enchanted book or a "treasure" item).

I remember seeing a list on the wiki a long time ago but it does not seem to have that anymore.

What loot tables have mending books/items?

1 Answer 1


So as I could not find an answer online, I just manually searched every loot table in the game to get an answer which I have now added to the wiki.

But anyways here we go:

Treasure enchantments (Mending, Frost Walker, Curse of Binding, and Curse of Vanishing) can be obtained from the following:

  • Jungle Temples (enchanted books)
  • Stronghold coridor, crossing, and library (enchanted books)
  • Fishing (both enchanted books and items)
  • End Cities (only items, not enchanted books)
  • Librarian villager trades (enchanted books)

Update: The aforementioned are chests that can roll books guaranteed to be "treasure enchantments" such as mending. However, there are a few other loot tables in the game that have "randomly enchanted" books that I was not aware apparently have a chance (small though it be) to be a treasure enchantment as well. These include:

  • Dungeons
  • Mineshafts
  • Ancient Cities
  • Desert temples
  • Pillager Outposts
  • Underwater ruins (big)
  • Woodland Mansions
  • what about desert temples? can they not have mending books?

  • looks like according to this wiki page mending books can be generated any time an "enchanted book" is in a loot table, such as dungeon chests, mineshaft chests, ancient cities, pillager outpost, underwater ruins, and woodland mansions.

  • I was not aware the books "enchanted randomly" included treasure enchants, also I'm not even sure if that's true. I'll have to verify
