Enchanting Plus GUI

Enchanting Plus

Enchanting Plus allows the player to pick and choose enchantments, as well as use levels to repair enchanted equipment, at the cost of more expensive enchanting.

Repairing Your Items

Repairing an item

Enchanting Plus allows you to repair armor and weapons that have been enchanted by the enchantment table (remember that tools created via Tinkers' Construct cannot be enchanted).

To repair equipment, simply place the damaged item on the enchantment table slot (it will now display the 'Repairing Cost') and press the button labeled 'R'. Assuming you have the required levels, the item should be fully repaired.

It is important to note that the cost to repair an item must not be higher than the capacity of the table (tip: items with enchantments have a higher repair cost!). This means that a table with little or no bookshelves nearby won't be able to repair heavily damaged items.


By using the sliders to the right of the item, players can pick exactly what enchantments they want, including choosing the rank of the enchantment. (i.e. One can choose any level of Sharpness from 1-5).

After selecting their enchantments, players should click the button labeled 'E' to apply their choice.

To repair an enchanted item, simply place it in the table and press the button labeled 'R'.

It is also possible to toggle between the modded and vanilla enchanting GUI by pressing the button on the right, labeled 'Vanilla' or 'Mod' (depending on which GUI you are currently in). Note that the Not Enough Items interface can sometimes obscure this button, but NEI can be hidden or shown by pressing 'o' whilst your inventory is open.

Player XP Level: Your current experience level.

Enchanting Cost: Tells you how much XP is required for the enchantments you have picked. Cannot exceed the Max Enchant Level.

Repairing Cost: Tells you how much XP is required to repair your enchanted item.

Max Enchant Level: Tells you the maximum number of levels you may spend on enchanting at once.


Disenchanting is disabled by default in the configuration files and could be turned on to allow disenchanting.

As items can be enchanted, they can be disenchanted. This will remove the enchantment(s) and refund some of the levels back to the player (be aware that you will get back fewer levels than the enchantments would have cost). Simply move the sliders down and the enchanting cost will turn negative to show how many levels you will be refunded, then click the 'E' button to confirm.

Note that items cannot be disenchanted unless they are fully repaired. Even if you only used your enchanted sword
Enchanting Cost is negative.
once, you cannot disenchant it unless you repair it first. Removing enchantments does not depend on the presence of bookshelves.

You can only disenchant items that you enchanted yourself, meaning that items you craft that come with enchantments or items you "loot" are unable to be disenchanted (although you can add additional enchantments to some of these items and remove those later on). 

Maximum Effectiveness

To achieve maximum enchant while still being able to access the enchanting table requires 30 bookshelves, as shown in the image to the right.

There should be 15 bookshelves on each level, and there should be 2 tiers. If you have set it up correctly, then the Max Enchant Level in the Enchantment Table should be 70.

The maximum enchantment level is 74 using bookshelves, but this will not include any side entrance into or out of the enchanting area and must be accessed from above or below.

However, using bookcases from the Bibliocraft mod allows the enchantment table to reach even higher levels, as a book per slot of the bookshelf individually adds to the enchant level.

The maximum enchantment level is 138 using 32 bookcases. However, similar to the 32 bookshelves method, this will not allow any access into or out of the enchanting area and must be accessed from above or below.

The reasons for this is because of how much each full bookcase adds compared to a bookshelf. Each bookshelf adds 2 to the max enchanting level, whereas each full bookcase adds 4 (each book adds 0.25 to max, with 16 books per bookcase).


  • Most blocks, if placed between the table and the bookshelves, will negate the effect of the bookshelves.
  • Mouse over an enchantment and hold SHIFT to view its description. Some Enchantments added by the Harken Scythe mod do not have a description.
  • Bookshelves added by the Natura mod will still count toward the table's maximum enchantment level and still only count as 2 like regular bookshelves.
