The Channeling enchantment is an absolute necessity if you’re a trident user. It allows you to further your Aquaman or King Triton dreams by making an already powerful weapon even more destructive. Here’s how to get the Channeling enchantment in Minecraft and what it does.
Here’s How to Get Channeling Enchantment & What It Does in Minecraft
The Channeling enchantment is a very specific-use enchantment but it’s one worth having in your arsenal and one worth equipping to your trident. Before diving into how to get it, let’s first talk about what it does.
What It Does
Using this enchantment will call down a lightning bolt from above to a mob when a mob is hit by a thrown trident. So basically, after you throw a trident and after it hits, a lightning bolt will follow up and inflict even more damage.
Now, this lightning bolt doesn’t just appear — Channeling only works when there is a thunderstorm going on and it only works if the mob is exposed to the elements.
The mob must be in an open area void of cover and it must be on land.
You can also use this enchantment to change creepers, villagers, pigs, and red mushrooms into charged creepers, witches, zombie pigmentations and brown mushrooms.
Now that we know what it does, let’s talk about how to get it.
How to Get It
To get Channeling, you first need an enchantment book. To do that, you need a book and three Lapis Lazuli.
With those materials in hand, open the enchant menu and combine those items to craft an Enchantment book.
This book is what will store Channeling for use. Now, to actually find Channeling, you need to search for enchantment tables, books caught while fishing, minecart chests, library villagers, chests found in the game’s many biomes and of course, raid drops.
It’s random so don’t give up hope if the first few don’t contain the enchantment. Just keep looking.
Once you’ve got Channeling, head to an enchantment table or an anvil. Once here, place your trident down. Select Channeling out of the enchantment book and apply it to the weapon.
Upon doing so, you should see that your weapon is now enchanted with Channeling.
