5) Unbreaking

In Minecraft, you will often find yourself fighting mobs. Swords have a specific amount of durability points which lowers with every strike. Once a sword runs of durability points, it breaks. Unbreaking enchantment helps gears last longer than they usually do.

Unbreaking enchantment gives a chance to avoid durability point reduction when the sword is used. At level III, the sword will last three times longer. Unbreaking doesn’t provide a damage increase, but it is a QoL (Quality of Life) improvement. Like Unbreaking, players are also advised to get Mending on their swords.

4) Knockback

As its name suggests, Knockback enchantment grants the ability to push enemies away. Knocking enemies away can give you some space to retaliate when cornered. Please remember Knockback works against mobs of a size similar to the player model. It is useless against mobs of large sizes, like the Wither and the Ender dragon.

3) Looting

Looting is not an offensive enchantment, but it is still one of the best choices for swords. Looting increases the chances of getting a rare item from a mob or the number of drops. It is a must-have enchantment if you use swords to kill mobs on a farm.

2) Fire Aspect

Fire Aspect is the melee variant of Flame enchantment. Enemies with Fire Aspect enchantment will be lit on fire and take damage from it. The major downside to Fire Aspect enchantment is that it does not affect mobs with fire resistance like boss mobs, nether mobs, etc.

1) Sharpness

Sharpness is one of the strongest enchantments in Minecraft. A sword enchanted with Sharpness V deals 6.25 extra damage in Bedrock Edition. A netherite sword’s total strength becomes 15.5.

With these enchantments on your sword, defeating any mob becomes easy. When going against undead mobs, Smite works better than Sharpness. Similarly, Bane of Arthropods is also an excellent enchantment for killing arthropods.
