So I've been playing on an SMP server, and I've been killing blazes to get around 35 levels of xp, for Fortune III (for diamonds, of course :P). The MineCraft wiki said that Fortune III requires around 35 levels of xp, but that hardly ever works for this enchantment.  Anyway, I finally have 35 levels of xp, but have heard that there's a low chance of actually getting the enchantment you want. So how can I be most sure of getting Fortune III? The tool is a diamond pick, btw. What's the average level required, chances of getting it, etc. Thanks!

If you want to get it in the fewest diamond picks then 50 is your answer,  Average 3.6 diamond picks to get.  If you want the best chance at the lowest xp cost then level 45 is the answer average 4.2 diamond picks to get.


If you have saving collecting diamond until you get fortune enchant your first pick if you get lucky go harvest it.  If you don't just send a bunch of iron picks (@lvl 43 4.3 picks on average) through till you get fortune 3.

Thanks! I tried it around 45 and got Unbreaking III, Efficiency III, and Fortune II. Pretty good for what it's worth!

glad you got your pick, I must have been lucky too.  The first time I enchanted anything I got a diamond pick with efficiency IV, Unbreaking III and Fortune III.  The second one I got efficiency IV, Unbreaking III and Silk touch I.

both were between 45 and 50 XP.

Nice! I need to shoot for 45-50 next time, then.

I'm having the same problem with Silk Touch... I believe it's totally random though, so while you have a better chance with higher levels, you just have to keep trying! I'm looking forward to enchanting books though, as then I can just keep doing that until I get an enchantment I actually want to use on my equipment.
