Bane of Arthropods is a weapon enchantment that increases damage to "arthropod" mobs (spiders, cave spiders, bees, silverfish, and endermites).

Usage[edit]

Each level on a sword or axe adds 2.5 (♥ x 1.25) extra damage to each hit on arthropods only.

The enchantment also inflicts Slowness IV on an arthropod when hit, with a random duration between 1 and 1.5 seconds at level I, increasing the maximum duration by 0.5 seconds each level, up to 3.5 seconds with Bane of Arthropods V.

Damage per hit[edit]

These tables detail how much damage is done per attack based on the level of enchantment used, assuming the target is not wearing armor and the attack is fully charged.‌[Java Edition only] Critical damage is in parenthesis.
