[1.19.4] How did we add enchantments by default to items with getDefaultInstance?


Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to add piercing by default already applied to my custom ranged weapon, I got this currently, I did this in the past but I forgot, I do remember it had something to do with getDefaultInstance:


    public ItemStack getDefaultInstance()
        ItemStack defaultInstance = new ItemStack(this);
        EnchantmentHelper.setEnchantments(Collections.singletonMap(Enchantments.PIERCING, 1), defaultInstance);
        return defaultInstance;


Thank you so much in advance

getDefaultInstance() is what you want, assuming that is what is actually used to create the ItemStack which is not always true.


new ItemStack(item, 1)

wouldn't call that method.


For recipes you will likely need to use the Forge NBT extension:


or you might want create a custom recipe type with its own assemble() to do it programmatically



And loot tables have a number of LootItemFunctions for enchanting.

If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.
