Is there any way to bypass the enchantment limit on Minecraft?



  • The maximum enchantment limit (with commands/NBT) is 256 on version 1.19.2. I was wondering if somehow I could bypass that?

    I saw an answer saying you need to edit the code, how do I need to edit the code?



  • Depending on your use-case, you might get away with the https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Commands/enchant command. On Java Edition, the level can be any integer between 0 and 2147483647.

    The weakness of this approach is that it targets a player, who would need to be holding the item in their hand to receive the enchantment. This may or may not affect you.

    If you need to use /give, you may need to create a mod and add a new command that allows greater enchantment levels. I recommend learning https://files.minecraftforge.net/net/minecraftforge/forge/ . The Forge team maintains a good https://docs.minecraftforge.net/en/1.19.x/gettingstarted/ to teach you how to create basic mods. It's not a Java tutorial though, so if you don't know how to program, you may need to start elsewhere. If you have a specific question about mod creation, that would be better suited as a different question.


    It looks like the changes to /give happened in 1.17. According to the https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Player.dat_format#History of the format page, 1.17 was when it was clamped to 255.
