Enchantment is an essential part of Minecraft, which allow players to customize their gear with extra beneficial effects. Some of the enchantments like unbreaking or sharpness are really popular because they provide tangible benefits right away. Gears with these enchantments are more effective and have to be repaired less often.

However, there are a number of enchantments in Minecraft that can provide useful bonuses but are often overlooked. In this article, Gurugamer.com is going to showcase the 5 underrated enchantments in Minecraft 1.19 that players should use more.

1. Luck of the Sea

Luck of the Sea is an enchantment to a fishing rod that increases luck while fishing. It increases the chance of treasure catches and lowers the chance of junk catches by about 2% per level. Additionally, the chance of fish catches is also lowered by about 0.15% per level.

Overall, fishing is one of the easiest and safest activities that you could do while still getting some useful items for your builds. From enchanted books to name tags and even a saddle, spending time fishing with the Luck of the Sea enchantment can yield a lot of benefits.

2. Knockback

When receiving damage from players, mobs, most projectiles, or explosions, players and mobs are also knocked back. The resulting disorientation and loss of control should not be underestimated, as it is possible to be knocked back over a cliff or into lava, both of which are potentially fatal.

The knockback enchantment amplified this. The knockback multiplies the distance of the base knockback. Knockback I will have a 105% increase in normal and sprinting and knockback II will have a 190% increase in these values. This means players need to get the enchantment to level 2 for it to really matter.

3. Multishot

Multishot is an enchantment for crossbows that allow them to shoot three arrows or firework rockets at the cost of one.

Players usually pick bows over crossbows due to their easier usage and generally higher damage. However, the crossbow can do a number of tricks that bows cannot perform. The multishot enchantment is one of these - players can deal damage to multiple targets or even deal triple the damage to one target (in Bedrock edition).

4. Projectile Protection

Out of the Protection enchantments, people usually underestimate projectile protection. They usually just go with the vanilla Protection enchantment to reduce damage against all sources instead.

However, most damage players take in the game are from ranged sources - melee attacks are usually easily avoided by just moving. This means having Projectile Protection on is actually more useful than most of its alternatives. Things like fall damage or fire damage can be dealt with using potions.

5. Smite

Smite is an enchantment applied to a sword or axe, increasing the damage dealt to undead mobs. While players need to carry an extra weapon, Smite is much more effective against undead, as it adds more damage than Sharpness.

Undeads are very common in Minecraft

Undead is pretty much the most popular mob type in Minecraft. From skeletons to zombies and even the Wither, there are a lot of mobs that this enchantment would be useful on. Lots of players just overlook this enchantment and stop looking at their sword after infusing it with Sharpness.
