What is the attraction enchantment used for in Minecraft?

The attraction enchantment is used to reduce the time needed to catch a fish when fishing. This enchantment has a maximum level of 3, and in total, it reduces the waiting time by 5 seconds for each level. Since fishing can become very difficult if our objective is to catch a rare fish, the attraction enchantment is very useful.

Just as with any other enchantment, there are two ways to get the attraction enchantment, either with an anvil, using the attraction enchantment book, or with an enchanting table.

How to get the attraction enchantment with an anvil

If you already have a book enchanted with the attraction enchantment in your possession, use an anvil. The recipe is simple, just place the fishing rod in the left box and the enchanted book in the right box.

The other way to enchant a fishing rod is through the enchanting table. If you do not know how to create it, this is the recipe:

  • Second row: Diamonds on the sides and obsidian in the center.

The enchantments that will appear are random, the attraction enchantment may appear as well as any other. One thing to keep in mind is that if you place several library blocks around the enchanting table, better enchantments will appear to add to the rod.
