Usage

Anvils are used to enchant Items using Enchanted Books. They also allow the Player to rename and repair Items, combine Enchantments on certain Items by using Experience Points, zoom or copy Maps, and put names on Name Tags.

  • Enchanted Tool/Weapon + another Tool/Tool => Repaired Tool/Weapon 
  • Enchanted Tool/Weapon + Enchanted Book => Enhanced Enchantment on Tool/Weapon 
  • Map + 8 Paper => Zoomed out Map 
  • Map + Empty Map => Two copies of a Map 

Anvils can also be used as a Weapon, as they inflict damage when they fall onto Players or Mobs.

Degrading

Anvils have a 12% chance of degrading once used, and may break once used enough times, on an average of 24 uses. Depending on how degraded they are, when mined, Anvils may drop as either a Slightly Damaged Anvil or as a Very Damaged Anvil.

Trivia

  • They produce a 'heavy metal' sound when placed.
  • Anvils obey Gravity like SandGravel, Snow, and Ignited TNT.
    • When dropped from large heights, an Anvil can become damaged, and can even break.
  • Falling Anvils are counted as Entities, so they can be Fished. This is also true with other Gravity obeying Blocks.
  • Anvils can Enchant even non-Tools, unlike Enchantment Tables. (E.g: Shears, Flint and Steel, etc.)
  • Some Items are too expensive to combine or fix as they have been combined or fixed too many times.
  • Anvils damage Players and Mobs by 2 hearts (4 Health Points) if they drop on top of the Player/Mob.
    • This is a reference to the common cartoon trope where an anvil falls onto the victim's head.
    • Damage will be increased if dropped from greater heights.
  • During the Update 0.14.0 Beta Builds, Anvils still required Experience to be used in Creative Mode. This was fixed in a later build.
  • The position of the Anvil depends on how the Player places it.
  • Until Update 0.14.0, the Player could not use the Anvil (or any appliance) in Creative Mode.
  • As of Update 0.15.0, Anvils are used to name Name Tags.
  • The Slightly Damaged Anvil and the Very Damaged Anvil are available in the Creative Inventory.
  • When dropped onto a non-Block, (e.g. Torch) the Anvil will drop itself, but turned to a different angle.
