How do you prioritize your enchantments?

I'm looking at stuff to enchant now that I'm level 30 and I'm overwhelmed with possibilities of things to enchant first. How do you prioritize your enchantments?

1. Sword/Pick (Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm going blaze huntin' in the nether, sword first. If I'm clearing out a large area or mining, pickaxe first.)
2.Armor (Again, depends if I plan on fighting a ton of mobs or something.)
3. Shovel.
4. Axe.

Try playing local Mario kart without punching your friends in the face. That series is pretty damn rage inducing.

Pickaxe, until you get Fortune III. Even with a Fortune I or II pickaxe, you'll rake in so many more diamonds than normal.

This.
Then sword, then armor (all 4 slots), then other tools. (I'm not real big on bows.)

So, you guys basically enchant in the same way you use your diamonds. I just spent my levels on a diamond pickaxe and got efficiency IV...

Well, for me, I always enchant boots first, to get Feather Falling IV or such, since I always seem to be falling off cliffs lol.

I don't even enchant. Too OP.

I don't think it's OP considering the time, resources, and luck that goes into it.

I just lucked out though. Diamond pickaxe with unbreakable III and Fortune III

Use the better enchanting mod if you want to get rid of the randomness. It's so much better being able to choose what enchantments you want.

I'd start with a pickaxe: efficiency, unbreaking and fortune. Then probably some sharpness on a sword but I'd also enchant a bow with power and infinity to deal with creepers and skeletons. And finally you get to the armor: respiration & aqua affinity on the helmet, feather falling on the boots, and various protections all around. And to save yourself a lot of grief from your enchanted stuff wearing out, put unbreaking on everything.
