I just looked at a thread and Ive seen on numerous youtube videos that people don't know what enchantment is what and think its just gambling for the enchantment. This is a common misconception.

I recall reading when enchanting was first implamented looking up how to figure it out. I found the answer quite quickly. The descriptions of the enchantments was actually written in The Standard Galactic Alphabet, from  Commander keen. I've never watched, read or played whatever Commander Keen is but, Enchanting was written in its alphabet, I guess Notch was a fan. If you dont belive me check this out (Its from the Minecraft wiki) http://www.minecraft...lactic_Alphabet

The text shown in the enchantment table (In the Standard Galactic Alphabet) does not translate to what enchantment you'll get.

If you look on the minecraft wiki it will show you that it translates to random phrases. And if I remember correctly one of them translated to something like: internets are good, I think that's what it was. But there is a website that tells you how to guess what you might get by using a formula but I couldn't understand it

They are random words.

I know Standard Galactic Alphabet, and when you translate the enchantments, it makes phrases like Long Stale Short.  It's just jibber jabber.

Thank you for spamming.

OT: The enchantment key, when translated, will be nothing but jibberish. I once tried to translte it, with some not-so-pretty results.
