The two available options to make a quick charge in Minecraft are described below:

  • Enchanting Table

Then, players can use this table to create Quick charge I or any other enchantment in Minecraft. However, players will need an essential ingredient, along with the crossbow, to complete the task. That ingredient is Lapis Lazuli, an essential mineral used for multiple enchanting and decorative purposes in Minecraft.

Players can get this mineral by smelting the blocks of Lapiz Lazuli ore. Moreover, players can mine these blocks in Minecraft. Each block can release up to nine pieces of mineral when smelted in a furnace.

A step-by-step guide to getting Quick Charge I enchantment using the enchanting table is given below:

  • Open the enchanting table. There will be two slots for placing the raw materials in there. Players can also see the available raw materials from the inventory box below the enchanting grid.
  • Select and move your crossbow from the inventory into the first slot of the enchanting grid. Similarly, fill in the second slot with the Lapis Lazuli mineral. Your regular crossbow will be upgraded with the Quick charge I enchantment automatically.
  • You can move the enchanted crossbow from the enchanting grid into your inventory to save it.

The Anvil can make Quick Charge enchantment in Minecraft and many other enchantments. However, it will also need some raw materials. The primary raw material here is the Enchanted book.

An enchanted book is an essential pre-requisite that allows players to enchant many things in Minecraft. Players can find these enchanted books in the following places:

Once you have a few regular books and the required emeralds, you can easily trade them for an enchanted book. After that, you can easily make quick charge enchantment for a crossbow in Anvil by using these books in Minecraft.
