[Top 5] Minecraft Best Armor Enchantment Combinations

It’s far more XP-efficient to use enchanted books when enchanting your armor, instead of relying on your table and a healthy amount of luck to give you a good set of charms. If you’re planning to scavenge or fish for enchanted books anyway, you might as well set a goal and work with a theme! Here are five great triple-enchantment options for your armor, all based around their own unique themes.

5. Deep Sea Diver - Helmet

Enchantments: Aqua Affinity + Respiration + Protection

  • If you don’t have the patience for turtle breeding, this enchantment set is for you!
  • This helmet is outfitted with respiration and aqua affinity to make ransacking shipwrecks a breeze. Topping the set off with protection defends your noggin from thrown tridents when you’re exploring underwater ruins.
  • Pair this helmet with a Potion of Night Vision to really peak your undersea efficiency.

4. Cliff Diver - Boots

Enchantments: Feather Falling + Unbreaking + Mending

  • Now that coal is found in higher altitudes, I find myself scouring mountain ranges and ravines far more frequently than I used to. If you’re up high, you’re gonna want these shoes to protect your feet.
  • With feather falling, fall damage is greatly reduced, and unbreaking and mending keeps them sturdy enough to endure plenty of wear and tear.
  • Elytra would make a great gear compliment to these boots.

3. Bulletproof Vest - Chestplate

Enchantments: Projectile Protection + Thorns + Unbreaking

  • Good, classic, old-fashioned protection makes this set iconic when facing down waves of zombies and skeletons.
  • Projectile protection reduces damage taken from arrows, and thorns lets your clothes fight for you, lashing out at every long-range hit. 
  • This chestplate is a great foundation for any extra gear or buffs.

2. Firefighter Equipment - Leggings

Enchantments: Mending + Fire Protection + Unbreaking

  • Barreling into a fortress in search of blaze rods? You’re gonna need some powerful pants!
  • Creepers, ghasts, and blazes will all be far easier to brave with fire protection, and unbreaking and mending help them last, even when they’re taking a lot of damage.
  • A Potion of Fire Resistance would go great with these leggings!
