Feather Falling is an enchantment to boots that reduces fall damage. It is an excellent enchantment that's often underrated. With a max level of 4, this enchantment can keep players safe from falling at any height. Furthermore, it stacks on top of other protective enchantments such as Protection, which results in even more damage reduction.

It does not affect falling speed, however. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 5 best usages of Feather Falling Enchantment in Minecraft.

1. Traversing the underground caves

It is very possible to take fall damage while mining. Any Survival mode players who spend enough time mining would have experienced this kind of sudden drop when breaking into an underground cave. This is extremely dangerous and the fall damage can kill you in combination with the ample lava underground.

With the Feather Falling boots equipped, players should be able to reduce the fall damage just enough to get out of whatever dangers they encounter.

Players can find caves when digging down, which can lead to long freefall into lava.

2. Avoiding building problem

When building tall structures, especially if you are building a long bridge or tall tower, falling down can be a serious problem. Dying from fall damage can lead to the loss of a lot of time and progress. Fortunately, Feather Falling boots can deal with this issue.

With this enchantment, you can just freely continue to reclimb the structure and continue to build it. If stacked up to the maximum fall damage protection, players should be able to survive a 100 blocks fall.

3. Reducing ender pearl teleport damage

Ender Pearl teleport is a common thing to do in Minecraft. This allows players to cross distances in an instant. However, if players miss a throw, it is very possible to fall to their deaths.

This is where the feather falling enchantment comes in. Even if the fall does not kill you, the accumulation of damage is still pretty annoying.

4. Easy Parkour

Parkour is one of the more popular minigames in Minecraft, with players building Parkour courses on very high up. A missed leap can lead to a player falling to their death.

However, if they have a Feather Falling boot, this can often be avoided. At its maximum vanilla rank of IV, Feather Falling will reduce fall damage by a total of 48%. If paired with protection, players can even reach the 80% damage reduction limit.

5. Traversing mountain biomes

With the new mountain biomes in the Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update, traversing terrains is becoming a real problem now, as their height has been increased significantly. Any type of mountains can spawn sudden drops or tricky steps now - one bad jump or backpedal can lead to heavy fall damage.

The enchantment would definitely remove this problem, allowing players to explore the environment much faster.
