  • Use the staircase to avoid pits; never try to dig down straight. 
  • For the enchantment table, you will need two diamonds with one pickaxe diamond to dig obsidian.
  • To avoid lava, stay at layers 11 and 12.

2. Create Obsidian

When flowing water smacks into lava, a dark kind of black hole appears that is called obsidian. Make it by yourself using buckets out of 3 irons. With the help of one bucket, take lava and pour it into the four-block hole. Now you have to pour the water from a level above enough to fit onto the lava, which makes the lava obsidian. 

3. Mine Four Obsidian

Make Your Minecraft Enchantment Better 

The level of Minecraft enchantment depends on your experience level. Don’t expect to enchant higher levels early on if you are at a lower level.

To increase the level, you can place a bookshelf near your enchanting table – with an area of one block. Gather 15 bookshelves in total to craft the best enchantment. Create the second row of bookshelves in case you run out of space.

If you want to enchant an item that you don’t possess right now, you can make an enchanted book to use later. You can’t choose the result as it is mainly based on your experience level, the enchanting item, and the enchantment seed. Options can be a fudge by reducing the number of bookshelves attached to the table. However, it will not impact possibilities.

To craft the max enchanted item to level up your game is by storing Minecraft enchantments in the form of an enchanting book. When you reach your desired level, pick a book and item you want to enchant and place them in the anvil.
