Visual Enchantments Resource Pack 1.17 / 1.16

Visual Enchantments is one of the most popular minecraft resource packs. You probably already know that one of the best features in a game titled minecraft is the ability to enchant most items, including swords, bows and armor. The problem with enchantments in this game is that you cannot visually see what kind of enchantment is being applied to that particular item. The only way to know it, is to read item’s info. This is not always comfortable. Most of us wants to have a better solution for this.

This is possible and it is not a problem anymore after Visual Enchantments resource pack release. Download and install this pack and you will notice that all your enchanted items are now displaying enchantments not just in description as text but they also look as a visually different items. For example: enchantments with extra protection will look like additional sheets of iron on armor, enchantment with breath will look like a helmet from an old swim suit. In general, this is one of the most useful minecraft additions of all time which we highly recommend for any player.

Visual Enchantments should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.17.1 - 1.17 - 1.16.5 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16 - 1.15.2 - 1.15.1 - 1.15 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14 - 1.13.2 - 1.13.1 - 1.13 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9.4 - 1.9 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8

    can you make so shields can have banner patterns when are enchanted

  2. Dane Johnston

    In the next update for this pack will there be a transition for the trident? Because the effects appear as the 2D texture but not as the 3D model

  3. eduardsozo


  4. Sander van den Heuvel

  5. Noob

    Can you please make one for bedrock edition

    1. Admin (

      As far as we know, this is not possible as the functionality of this pack is based on the Optifine tool, which is only java.

  6. Tobias

    for me it doesn’t work at all can somebody help me

    1. Admin (

      Read the How to Install guide on this page and make sure you have Optifine installed.

  7. bryan

    trident doesn’t work

  8. Jack

    Can you add the enchantment names to the pictures of enchanted items? It’d be really helpful finding the right design for a sword.

  9. Jack

    What enchants do you have to use to make the katana in the first picture? I’ve tried every one I can think of, no dice.

    1. Mens

      I think is was knockback, and fire aspect

  10. opmuz

  23. Seth Krudwig

    If your seeing the enchantment books without the enchanted glaze your gonna have to go back to the launcher and switch from your regular account to the optifine one.

  24. Rashaexe

    So the 1.12 version works all the way down to 1.8? Sweet! Wanted this pack for a while now.

  25. cool dude

  27. Ninja Fox

    I downloaded the file and got it in the folder just fine and everything was working but when I got in game nothing happened except that it removed the shine from my enchantments and did nothing


      same for me

      1. Lunaetic

        same here

    2. Grendragon

      You might not have used OptiFine. I had the same problem and then realized that I wasn’t using OptiFine.

      1. opmuz

        i used optifine but the same happened to me for some reason

  28. E4RLY

    Can you make a x32 version of this? thank you!

  29. isimsiz

    ı open custom items but my armor is still default
    in my hand like texturpack but when ı equip my armor , it is default armor why? sorry for my bad english ı have optifine 1.15.2

  30. Amber

    This pack no longer works for 1.15.2, will we be expecting an update?

  31. EmetrX Gaming

    Hello, you should add a system where say you have unbreaking and protection you can name your armor “unbreaking” and it will have that look! See ItemBound, it does this to an extent.

  32. Findo

    Is there a way to make it for 1.12 or 1.8?

  33. rigbyribena

    excuse me but only the enchanted books are working for me

  34. Dominic Seel
