Can you remove Curse of vanishing Minecraft?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

Curse of Vanishing is a unique enchantment in Minecraft that adds an interesting twist to the game. Unlike other enchantments, Curse of Vanishing cannot be removed by using a grindstone or a crafting table. This means that once an item is cursed, the curse cannot be easily removed.

However, there are a couple of exceptions to this rule. If the cursed item happens to be a pumpkin or a mob head, there is a way to remove the curse. Simply placing and breaking the head will get rid of the Curse of Vanishing enchantment. This can be quite useful if you want to use a cursed pumpkin or mob head for decoration or as a disguise without the risk of losing it permanently.

It’s worth noting that if a mob drops an item with Curse of Vanishing, the enchantment still works as it normally would. This means that if you manage to defeat a zombie or a skeleton wearing cursed armor, the armor will vanish upon your death, just like any other cursed item.

Removing Curse of Vanishing from other items, such as weapons, tools, or armor, is unfortunately not possible in the game. This adds an extra layer of challenge and risk to gameplay, as cursed items can be lost forever if you die while carrying them.

While some players may find Curse of Vanishing frustrating, it can also add an element of excitement and tension to the game. It encourages players to be more strategic and careful with their valuable items, as the risk of losing them permanently is always present.

In my personal experience, Curse of Vanishing has led to some interesting gameplay moments. I remember finding a powerful enchanted diamond sword in a dungeon, only to realize it was cursed. I had to decide whether to use it and risk losing it forever, or keep it safely stored away. Ultimately, I chose to use it, and it added an extra layer of excitement to my battles, knowing that every fight could potentially be my last with that sword.

Curse of Vanishing is a unique enchantment in Minecraft that cannot be removed by a grindstone or a crafting table. However, if the cursed item is a pumpkin or a mob head, placing and breaking the head will remove the curse. For other items, the curse remains, adding a challenging and risky element to gameplay.
