Impaling is one of the features in Minecraft that is not explained well. A large number of enchantments are not described properly and players are left on their own to figure out the game’s mechanics. Impaling is one of the best enhancements which is exclusive to the trident. Here’s a quick look at how the enchantment works and how you can make the most use of it.
How does Impaling Work in Minecraft?
The Impaling enchantment works differently depending on which edition of the game you are playing. In both the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition of the game, impaling does bonus damage to mobs. However, the enchantment does bonus damage to aquatic mobs if you are playing the Java edition of the game.
The Bedrock edition of the game, on the other hand, allows Implaing to do bonus damage to all mobs. But the enchantment works when players are in the rain, floating, or underwater. Unless you are around water or affected by rain, the enchantment becomes useless. Unlike a lot of other damage boosting enchantments, the Impaling is only situationally good.
How to get Impaling in Minecraft?
In order to get the enchantment, players need access to the enchantment table. Once you have access to the enchantment table, you need to place your Trident as well as some lapis lazuli in the enchantment table menu. This will open up multiple enchanting options to choose from.
Impaling is one of the six enchantments available for Tridents. The other enchantments include Loyalty, Riptide, Channeling, Unbreaking, and Mending.
You can level up Impaling a total of five times with each level increasing your damage by 2.5. However, the number of lapis lazuli you need per level goes up even though the damage increase you get per level is the same.
