I was playing on a Vanilla Survival server, and I enchant a diamond sword to Sharpness 3, Knockback 2, Looting 2, and Fire Aspect 2. Is this the best sword enchantment?
The best sword would be Sharpness V, Knockback II, Fire Aspect II. (I was under the impression that you can only get 3 enchantments on an item, but if not, then looting as well. And Unbreaking if you use a book.)
If you have TMI (Too Many Items) you can make a Shapness 10, Knockback 10 Fire Aspect 10, (ect) Sword that will kill ALL Non-Boss Boss mobs in 2 hits. But if you are looking for a more ligit sword, that one sounds pretty nice.
Now that we can combine enchanted gear with the anvil, the best sword for single player is Smite V, Knockback II, Fire Aspect II and Looting III(not really required in PvP), and for PvP the best sword is the same with the only difference being the Sharpness V instead of the Smite V, because Sharpness does extra damage to everything including players by 0.5 to 1.5 hearts, but the Smite only does extra damage to zombies, pigmen, withers and skelletons but its more with 0.5 to 2.0 hearts. Since you dont meet other players for PvP in singleplayer, you would want the Smite sword to defend yourself better againts the mobs + the Looting III for more drops.
What about Bane of Arthropods?
