Disenchanting Forge

This mod adds a Disenchanter block that will let you disenchant enchanted items and transfer their enchantments onto books. The Disenchanter will remove the first enchantment from the item and transfer it onto a book. If you shift-click the output book, the Disenchanter will try to transfer all enchantments onto all available books, assuming you have enough experience and books to cover the cost. You can use the random_enchantment config to pull a specific enchantment off an item by placing and re-placing it in the input slot until the desired enchanted book appears in the output. Actually choosing the enchantment is on the roadmap.


Fabric version: Disenchanting Fabric

Known bugs

  • Doesn't play nicely with any sort of automatic extraction blocks, like hoppers / conduits / cables. There is no restriction on output to blocks that transfer items, so attaching any can cause it to function improperly. Fixed in 2.0.0 and later.
      • Please log bugs on the issue tracker here.
