If anyone still plays and posts here, does anyone know what the enchantment “vampiric” does, or how many levels it goes up to.
From what I can tell, it seems to be one of the rarest enchantments in the game (I’m in version r104). I managed to get sharpness 2, looting 3, and vampiric 2.
From the description of it, and the name, I’m guessing it involves regenerating your health slightly when you kill a mob. However, I can’t seem to figure out the mechanic. I spent a whole night out fighting mobs, keeping my health around 5 hearts the whole time. When I killed mobs, my health didn’t go up. However, sporadically (maybe twice throughout a whole night) my health bar would fill all the way to 10.
Does the enchantment “save up” 10 hearts of damage at a time from killed mobs, then restore you to full health when this is reached? If so, it seems one could simply kill a certain amount of mobs, then go somewhere dangerous (ie mining) and use a different sword, and if your health gets low, simply switch to the vampiric sword, kill one mob, and be restored to full health instantly.
If not, how does the enchantment work?
