Minecraft: Here Is How To Enchant a Stick

The Enchanted Stick Featured

Sticks are seemingly useless in Minecraft, only made to help you create tools and weapons you’ll then use to explore and survive in your Minecraft world, but is this statement far off from the truth? Can sticks be used for more than just a crafting ingredient, and can you enchant them in Minecraft?

  • Article Breakdown:
  • Sticks can’t be enchanted in your regular survival Minecraft world, but you can enchant them in creative mode.
  • This can only happen if you’re a Java Edition player meaning that Bedrock Edition players have to get on by without the possibility, not even in creative mode.
  • Select an enchantment and join it with a stick in an anvil to enchant it.

Can you enchant a stick with Knockback 1000?

Knockback 1000 seems unreal and almost like a meme, but Knockback 1000 is possible and incredibly fun to use. I highly recommend you try it out in your games, especially when you want to shoo away a creeper, and then you hit them with a stick and blast them into the distance millennia away.

To enchant a stick with Knockback 1000, you’ll have to have cheats on, which means you can also use this feature in a survival world. Although survival worlds seem less fun when you use cheats in them, perhaps a newly chaotic world with cheats on is on the horizon where you can test out new things and, most importantly, have fun with them.

To get back to my previous statement, to enchant a stick with knockback 1000, open your chat box and type in

/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:knockback,lvl:1000}]}’‘.

If you want to play with the feature a bit, you can set the level to 10.000, and it still works. I played around with it further, and you can go up to a billion, perhaps even more, but after knockback 100000, it stops being fun since you can’t even see the mob you kicked away anymore.

Can you enchant a stick with sharpness 1000?

Just as you would with a knockback enchantment, you can enchant a stick with the sharpness enchantment. The command to give yourself a stick with sharpness 1000 is

/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:sharpness,lvl:1000}]}”.

Just as you would with a knockback enchantment, you can increase the level of the sharpness enchantment.

This won’t be obvious like it is with knockback if you’re killing regular mobs, but it will certainly make an impact in your game if you’re trying to kill a boss like an Ender Dragon, Wither, or perhaps even the Warden. Now that we’ve covered both enchantments and realized you certainly could enchant them, is it possible to enchant a stick with other enchantments?

Explaining the command

Now that you know the command to give yourself an enchanted stick, you can also play around with other enchantments. If it’s unclear what the command stands for, let’s explain it in detail first and then list the available enchantments for sticks and some other cool things.

”/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:knockback,lvl:1000}]}”

The give is pretty obvious to decipher; it tells the command that every parameter after the give will specify in little or a lot of detail what someone will receive. The @p specifies that you want the /give command to work on the nearest player, which is you. You could also change it up if you’re on a server and have fun with your friends. The @a will give it to all players, while @r will give it to a random player.

The rest of the command is just tags of how Minecraft identifies and calls enchantments in a programming language. This is not something you can change unless you’re changing the enchantment and level completely, which I did, for example, to change up the level of the enchantment. These ID values and tags must be remembered, but it’s pretty easy. Last but not least, you have to close all the opened brackets.

Other available enchantments for sticks

Other than the knockback and fire aspect, you can give a stick all sorts of enchantments. Some, like the fire aspect, can’t have a higher level so that the level part would be set to one. For fire aspect type in

/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:fire_aspect,lvl:1}]}”.

The looting enchantment, however, can have a higher level than what’s normally available.

To give yourself a looting enchantment on a stick, open the command window and type in

/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:looting,lvl:100}]}’‘.

Level 100 is symbolic and can be changed into something like 200 or something in the middle, but it will change the power of the enchantment.

If you’d like to have more enchantments on one stick, you can do so. The same procedure applies to the command but with an additional parameter separated from the first with a comma and brackets. Let’s type in the command using the knockback and looting example. To get a stick with two enchantments, type in

/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:knockback,lvl:1000}]},[{id:looting,lvl:100}]}”.

To add more enchantments, add the ”[{id:ENCHANTMENT NAME,lvl:N}]}” and a comma before it. Commas are as important as spacing since they separate parameters from one another.

Why would you want to enchant a stick?

There’s no real reason to enchant a stick, just like there’s no real reason to use cheats in a Minecraft world, but if you want to spice it up a bit and make your game a little less monotone while playing alone or with friends, enchanting a stick can bring a lot of fun to your world. You can even make stories out of it.

Sticky God

One idea I had was to enchant the stick on my server and rename the stick to Sticky God using the

/give @p minecraft:stick{display:{Name:'[{“text”:”Sticky God”}]’}}”,

create an epic ruin in my world and place the Sticky God in a chest. I would then proceed to make a statue of my favorite Sticky God and create a mystery lore around Sticky God that my friends could learn about and explore in our Minecraft world. Perhaps a player could get the stick randomly, and it would be cool to see what they do with it.

This is just one of the many things you can do with enchanted sticks. It’s ridiculous and incredibly fun. Simply thinking about knocking back hostile mobs with a stick or killing the Ender Dragon with one swift blow is enough to provide you or your friends with hours of fun.

Whatever you do with your precious stick in Minecraft, remember that a pen, or in this case, a stick is mightier than a sword, and you can begin to prove it time and time again by becoming an epic stick warrior.

Stick mods

Alas, if your Minecraft world isn’t as fun with all the sticky fun I just presented, you can always rely on mods to bring some fun into your Minecraft worlds. One such mod is the Advanced Sticks mod which introduces 450 new items into Minecraft. You’ll get to combine stuff like blaze rods to create weapons and tools with special abilities, and you’ll even get to make bars out of different types of wood. It’s a big mod that you can explore endlessly.
