For the past two days, since the 1.3.1 update, I decided that I would start enchanting my tools a lot more since enchanting has become much easier. I have a stack of diamond ore laying around that I want to use a fortune III pick on, but I can never seem to get the enchant. I have easily used over 15 diamond picks and still no Fortune III enchant. I have gotten a lot of Unbreaking III, Efficiency IV, Fortune II, and Silk Touch I combination picks but no Fortune III. I always enchant my picks at Lvl.30. I tested for a Fortune III pick in creative and got it within a couple of tries. Not sure if this is an in-game problem or me just having bad luck :\ I just wanted to know if other people are having trouble getting this enchant in survival as well. Any replies would be greatly appreciated, thanks Posted Image

Unfortunately, I have to say that this is merely bad luck on your part. Fortunately, I can say that this will have no impact on future enchantment attempts. Good luck!

Thanks a lot guys for the feedback :) Unfortunately I am at around 25 diamond picks but still no Fortune III. Knowing my luck a Fortune III pick is a long ways away, but regardless I will keep on trying!

I doubt you want to hear this... but my first diamond pick (at lvl 3) was Unbreaking III, Efficiency IV, Fortune III.
And the kicker is I was sad because I wanted Silktouch.

Which mod do u mean? I know those mods or TPs that just translate the galactic alphabet but that doesn't help with the enchantment or am i wrong?

according to this there is a 19.4% chance of getting Fortune III on a diamond pickaxe at level 30 and the average number of tries before getting one is 5.2

you're just really unlucky.

I'm assuming you meant to type level 30 because that's not even possible to get at level 20.

Its bad luck. I should have a 40% chance of Feather fall 4 on my diamond boots, but I spent 7 boots and only got one.

Same with silk touch for me.
