Question about silk touch

#1rodman870Posted 1/28/2012 3:05:45 PM
Does anyone know how many experience points I need till I start seeing these? I've tried a few 10s and a couple 20s but I still haven't gotten one.

Also I heard the material really matters when it comes to seeing it. Which material is best? (I assume diamond)

Silk Touch won't start appearing until after level 25. Higher levels are better. Any materials work, but generally you'll want diamond for it to last longer.

The chances can be seen here:

At level 11 you have a 0.1% chance of getting it. Level 20 you have a 5.8% chance. Level 30 only a 10.3% chance. It's very rare.

Ahh I got to around 25 then a creeper/enderman murdered me and I lost all my exp. Does anyone know a good way to get exp besides waiting till night and killing anything you see?

Also thanks for that link. It helps a lot. Aqua affinity is apparently also very hard to get.

Find a spawner and build a little trap around it. The most popular ones are blaze spawners in the Nether, but they can be hard to find and be pretty dangerous.

Zombie and Skeleton spawners also work good, but they give you half the EXP compared to Blazes.

at level 50, you have a greater chance of getting Efficiency IV Silk Touch I Unbreaking III then just getting only the silk touch I.

True I guess, but only 17.01% of getting a triple enchantment and you might get Fortune instead of Silk Touch.
