Enchantments are beneficial in almost every element of Minecraft. They can help you do more damage to adversaries, boost the durability of your tools, and even set creatures on fire. You can enchant your armour with multiple enchantments to make it more resistant to attacks, fire, and explosions. Aqua Affinity is a unique enchantment that is akin to efficiency.
The enchantment Aqua Affinity can be applied to any helmet. Without utilising commands, you can’t use it on any other piece of armour, weapon, or tool. Underwater, the enchantment enhances your mining speed. When you mine bricks underwater, you usually mine them significantly slower. Furthermore, when you are mining while floating in the sea, your mining pace is reduced even more. Aqua Affinity allows you to mine underwater at the same speed as you would on land. Despite the fact that your floating mining pace has increased, the penalty has not been totally abolished. Even with Aqua Affinity, mining while floating in the water is slower than mining on land.
Aqua Affinity in Minecraft
Aqua Affinity is a Minecraft helmet enchantment that eliminates the penalty for mining underwater, as it normally takes five times as long to break the item. Gathering prismarine from underwater temples is easier and faster with Aqua Affinity. It just has one level and is relatively easy to obtain in the game on a helmet or a turtle shell.
You may receive the Aqua Affinity enchantment on your helmet by utilising an enchanting table, much like most other enchantments. On any XP level, there’s a possibility you’ll obtain the enchantment. The likelihood of gaining Aqua Affinity with a level one enchantment is roughly 15%, but when you enchant at level 30, the chance climbs to over 30%. Aqua Affinity may be added to any helmet type.
You can also use an anvil to apply Aqua Affinity to a helmet if you have an enchanted book with Aqua Affinity on it. Random enchanted books can be found in the following areas in Minecraft Bedrock and Java Editions:
- Jungle Temple chests
- Stronghold altar, storeroom and library chests
- Desert Temple chests
- Pillager Outpost chests
- Underwater ruins chest
- Woodland mansion chests
While these chests do not ensure that you will discover an enchanted book, they are worth examining if you are looking for one. Also, the enchanted books you see may or may not have Aqua Affinity. You may, however, discover additional useful enchantments to apply on the rest of your gear.
How to get the Aqua Affinity Enchantment
There are currently only three ways to accomplish this in Minecraft: enchanting a helmet at the enchanting table, using an anvil and an enchanted book, or trading an Aqua Affinity enchanted helmet with a villager. This should go without saying, but this enchantment can only be used on helmets.
- Aqua Affinity may be obtained in a variety of ways. You may put your Helmet into an Enchanting Table, just like other goods, and hope for the best. You may check if you’ll get it by hovering over Enchantments on the right hand side.
- Aqua Affinity can also be purchased as an Enchanted Book. These may be obtained from loot chests or by bartering with Villagers. If you pick this approach, you will need to apply it using an Anvil.
- Open an Anvil if you have the Aqua Affinity Enchanted Book. To connect your Helmet and Book together, place them both in the empty spaces. There is a flat fee that you can see in the window.
It’s useful for gamers who wish to spend a lot of time underwater creating. When wearing an Aqua Affinity helmet, the player’s ability to shatter blocks will not be slowed when underwater. Under normal conditions, being underwater increases the time it takes to break blocks significantly, but this helmet enchantment fully removes that impact. There are several occasions where something like this might be useful.
What is the purpose of Aqua Affinity in Minecraft?
When building something underwater, Aqua Affinity is a must-have. Because players must keep track of their oxygen levels, being able to break blocks quickly is essential for expediting the construction process. Even explorers can benefit from this block, particularly if they desire to visit an Underwater Monument. Because these structures are totally immersed in water, players will frequently have to break blocks to get access.
Players should surround their enchanting table with bookshelves in order to have the highest chance of achieving Aqua Affinity for a helmet. Even if you don’t plan on getting Aqua Affinity, this will improve the level and quality of enchantments you find. Although this is a situational enchantment that won’t constantly come into play, players won’t want to be caught without it when they’re underwater.
The Operation of the Aqua Affinity Enchantment
It takes 5 times longer to mine bricks underwater than it does on land. This debuff is removed by wearing a helmet with the Aqua Affinity enchantment, which allows you to mine at your normal speed.
Aqua Affinity has only one level, and it works on all types of helmets, including Turtle Shells worn on your head. This enchantment is especially beneficial for gathering materials like Clay and Sponges that only emerge underwater.
Helmets you can Enchant with Aqua Affinity
Aqua Affinity should be used to enchant either a Turtle Shell or a Diamond Helmet. The Water Breathing effect is naturally present in turtle shells, allowing you to stay underwater for extended periods of time. A Turtle Shell is worth enchanting with Aqua Affinity because of this, as well as its excellent stats.
If you enchant a Diamond Helmet, another excellent option is to use it. Diamond Helmets offer the finest numbers of any helmet, so wearing one is a no-brainer.
