I enchanted a bow with Power 1, and now I have three bows all with Power 1 on them. Did monsters drop the others, or is there an item duplication bug in Minecraft?

  • Good question. I've seen them drop bows (And an iron helmet so far) but nothing enchanted.

Skeletons have the chance to drop both enchanted and unenchanted bows. It sounds like you've been pretty lucky with your anti-skeleton tactics!

    I was very lucky, in that there is a skeleton spawn box right outside my castle's basement, and I have about 30 dogs parked in it.

    I have had a Zombie Pigman drop an enchanted golden sword. You're not seeing a dupe bug, you're getting blessed by the RNG.
