Soul Speed is an enchantment that can be applied on boots and allows the player to walk more quickly on soul sand.


Soul Speed can be acquired via bartering with piglins, who may offer enchanted books and iron boots with a random level of Soul Speed. Piglins may spawn wearing golden boots enchanted with Soul Speed which have a chance to drop when they are killed. Enchanted books and golden boots with a random level of Soul Speed may appear in bastion remnant "other" chests.

Soul Speed is a treasure enchantment, and thus cannot be obtained from enchanting in an enchanting table. Unlike other treasure enchantments, it cannot be obtained from most chest loot (aside from in bastion remnants), fishing, or trading.



When walking on soul sand or soul soil, Soul Speed increases the player's speed. When wearing boots with Soul Speed, the player's speed is adjusted by the multiplier 0.9 + Soul Speed Level * 0.125. The speed decrease of soul sand has no effect on Soul Speed, meaning that the player can walk on soul sand with the same speed as on soul soil.


The durability of worn boots enchanted with Soul Speed has a 4% chance to go down for each compatible block stepped on.


Soul Particle

Soul particles appear when walking on one of the compatible blocks.


The soul_speed_blocks tag determines which blocks are compatible with Soul Speed.
