How to repair a trident in Minecraft

Tridents are very useful, but when the durability gets low, they are hard to repair since you need another trident or the mending enchantment. You should be able to  repair  tridents in an anvil using prismarine shards or crystals.

Tridents only drop from trident-wielding naturally spawned Drowned. So your best bet would be to scout the area for places where Drowned spawn naturally (rivers and oceans), make sure the light level under the water is below 8, and just farm for it.

Tridents generally speaking are a rare drop and fighting the Drowned is a pain. Players on a pro-level would probably terraform the spawn point to create an automated farm, regulars can just grind.

Just make sure you have a spare Mending book because tridents usually come in red durability and are easy to break.

To repair a trident, you can do one of two things:

  • Combine it with another trident in an anvil (or grindstone if there are no enchantments)
  • Put mending on it, then repair it with XP

Tridents are MUCH harder to get a hold of on Java Edition than Bedrock due to the fact that all drowned a have a chance of dropping them on Bedrock versus only drowned holding tridents on Java; therefore, combining a trident with another is only viable on Bedrock Edition since it is easy to get multiple.

However, if you combine them in an anvil, the repair will eventually become too expensive unless you use a grindstone (which will get rid of any enchantments on the trident).

Therefore, in both editions, the best option would be to put a mending book on it. You can then repair the trident by holding it in your hand (or offhand on Java) and collecting XP, which can be done by killing mobs, breeding animals, smelting items in a furnace/blast furnace/smoker, and various other activities.

To obtain a mending book, one must either find it in loot chests or get a librarian that sells mending books for emeralds and a normal book.

This is easy. All you need is one villager, a bed (for the villager to sleep in), and a lectern that you can place, break and place again until you get a mending trade.

You can get emeralds by growing sugarcane, crafting it into paper, and selling it to the villager. You also will get a discount if you cure a zombie villager.

A final tip, put Unbreaking III on the trident so that it will lose durability slower than you can gain XP.

Mojang and Microsoft want you to do this the hard way: Search far and wide for the rare Drowned that holds the trident, and hope that it’s durable enough to not break upon its first throw, but long before 1.13 came to the players, I came to the decision that this was dumb, and chose the “cheaty” lazy method. Though it involved getting “lucky” enough to live right above a zombie dungeon.

In 1.13, Zombies will not swim unless aggro-ed by a nearby player or whatever. Eventually, they’ll “drown” and become the frightening mob you know as “Drowned” (Trust me, Baby Drowns make normal baby zombies look tame).

So I figured, “Hey, what if I hack a zombie dungeon to basically spawn “Drowns” instead of a normal zombie dungeon for its drops.

There are many designs for such a contraption, and most of them are far too efficient or expensive to be survival-mode capable, but I just flooded the dungeon so the zombies would immediately float into a collection zone to be turned into drowns and harvested, and when I decided there were plenty of drowns in the kill chamber,

I sealed it off with a sticky piston (preventing zombies from being killed before they could be converted), and laid waste to the helpless mobs.

Sure, it doesn’t guarantee a trident every time, but while slow, it’s guaranteed to give you a lot. and I mean, A LOT. Like a full single chest of tridents of various durability. And is that not enticing?

What’s the fastest way to get a trident in Minecraft?

The fastest way to get a trident in Minecraft is to kill a drowned that has one. Save your tridents, because generally they will come with weak durability and you will need to combine them in an anvil to repair the trident’s durability.

However, it can’t just be a regular drowned, it must be a drowned with a trident in its hand. You should have a sword with the looting enchantment because it will increase your chances of the drowned dropping its trident.

15% of drowned in Bedrock Edition, and 6.25% in Java Edition, will spawn with a trident of random durability as their natural weapon, and they have an 8.5% chance of dropping the trident (increasing by 1% with each level of Looting).

Drowned can also drop a trident as one of its normal drops. The trident has a 3.7% chance, 4% chance with Looting I, 4.3% chance with Looting II, and a 4.7% chance with Looting III of dropping itself.

In Bedrock Edition and Console, a zombie can be converted to a drowned with a trident that can be dropped. In the Java Editions, only naturally-spawned drowned can spawn with a trident or have a chance of dropping one.

You can only get a trident by a drowned zombie. 1 out of 16 drowned zombies have a trident (6.25%) and only 8.5% of that percent drops it.

(I’ve gotten killed by them so many times T-T)

You can also farm drowned zombies as well.

Same as the other weapons. Tridents can be repaired by combining a damaged trident with another on an anvil, by crafting, or the Mending enchantment.

Combining damaged tridents with a crafting table or the 2×2 inventory grid (instead of using an anvil) will remove any enchantments.

Tridents are very useful, but when the durability gets low, they are hard to repair since you need another trident or the mending enchantment. You should be able to repair tridents in an anvil using prismarine shards or crystals.

Friends, I like the fact it’s a little rare. I made a zombie farm from one zombie spawner. I used water to turn them in to drown. After 5 minutes I had 15 tridents. You only need one with mending and it should never break. 

That would be a nice use for prismarine, and I completely agree: tridents are unbelievably tough to repair due to the utter lack of tridents to repair it with. I usually just have to wait until I get a reliable source of Mending books; I’m all for this!
