Breaking a bow in Minecraft is normal, but preparing it is super hard. The problem arises when you don’t know how to repair the Minecraft bow. Well, that’s quite an easy task!
But, you don’t need to worry as in this guide you are going to know how to repair your bow in an effortlessly & efficient way.
So without further ado, let’s get started:
4 Quick and Easy Methods to Repair Your Bow
Have you tried different methods to repair a bow? Not one but I am going to tell you 4 different and effective ways to repair your inutile bow in Minecraft.
Method 1: Through Grindstone
One of the easiest ways to repair a bow in Minecraft or any other weapon is by using a grindstone. This method is everyone’s favourite when it comes to repairing items and tools.
Things you need:
- 2 wood planks
- 2 sticks
- 1 stone slab
After gathering all of these things, now, put them on the crafting table in the following order:
After building the grindstone, now take two bows in the slots which results in a bow having more health than the two bows.
The downside of using grindstone is that your weapon will be degraded from enchantment, giving you some experience points.
Note: This method only works if you have killed the skeleton to get bows.
Method 2: Through Anvil
The second yet most effective method to repair the bow is no other than using the Anvil and some other things. Anvil is useful not only in repairing enchanted items like a bow but also to rename and collect available items.
Things you need:
- 4 iron ingots and,
- 3 iron blocks
Now, to repair your broken bow, follow these simple steps;
- Take the anvil from your inventory.
- Put the broken bow in one slot.
- Now put the other necessary materials to make the bow in the second slot.
- The anvil will fix your bow and the good part is you won’t even lose the enchantments.
Now that your bow is repaired. You can now attack your enemy again. Hurray!!
Method 3: Through Crafting Table
If you’ll ask me my favourite method to repair a bow, I will go with the crafting table. It is more reliable than the other two methods.
Now all you need to do is to add two ordinary bows to the crafting table. It will not only repair your bow but also give it more strength and durability.
But, the bad news is, you can’t use this method for repairing enchanted bows because if you do, you’ll lose the enchantments and your bow will become ordinary.
Method 4: Through Mending
Last but not the least, is to mend your bow by increasing its XP.
This was first introduced in the previous version where you can mend enchanted items only by holding them in your hands.
Hold the item in your hand, and gain some XP to enable mending. After gaining XP the enchantments on your bow will become more durable, making it more effective and hence can be used for repairing your broken bow.
Uses of a Bow
- Attacking from afar is only possible while using a bow.
- The Durability of the bow makes it the most effective weapon since you can use it 385 times before it becomes impractical.
- Wide range to attack from afar, making yourself less vulnerable to attacks.
- Heavy damage since the more the bow is pulled, the far the arrow will go.
- Can be renewed easily by different methods.
Now you are all informed about the methods to repair a bow in Minecraft. You can repair the ordinary ones from the crafting table and enchanted ones by using an anvil.
Repair your bow, whether enchanted or ordinary, by these methods, and don’t skip a single chance to attack your enemy.
After reading all the methods above, tell me which one is your favourite. Is it crafting table one? Or the grindstone one?
