Hello,

In this blog post, I'm gonna describe the way you can use to calculate how much damage a melee weapon deals in the game.

First, you need to know how much damage your weapon does without any enchantment.

Here are all the different swords and the damage they deal.

  • Wooden sword = 2,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Golden sword = 2,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Stone sword = 3 hearts of damage per hit
  • Iron sword = 3,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Diamond sword = 4 hearts of damage per hit

Here, now, are all the different axes and the damage they deal.

  • Wooden axe = 2 hearts of damage per hit
  • Golden axe = 2 hearts of damage per hit
  • Stone axe = 2,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Iron axe = 3 hearts of damage per hit
  • Diamond axe = 3,5 hearts of damage per hit

Here are also all the different shovels and the damage they deal. (Yes, shovels deal more than 1 damage!)

  • Wooden shovel = 1 heart of damage per hit
  • Golden shovel = 1 heart of damage per hit
  • Stone shovel = 1,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Iron shovel = 2 hearts of damage per hit
  • Diamond shovel = 2,5 hearts of damage per hit

Here are all the different pickaxes and the damage they deal.

  • Wooden pickaxe = 1,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Golden pickaxe = 1,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Stone pickaxe = 2 hearts of damage per hit
  • Iron pickaxe = 2,5 hearts of damage per hit
  • Diamond pickaxe = 3 hearts of damage per hit

Finally, all the items that aren't  tools (except for the hoes) will deal 0,5 heart of damage per hit.

Next, you need to know how the weapons enchantment works.

  1. Sharpness adds 2 damage (1 heart) to the damage originally dealt by your weapon. The added damage is increased by 2 with each level of Sharpness, so Sharpness I adds 1 heart, Sharpness II adds 2 hearts, etc.
  1. Fire Aspect sets the opponent on fire. Fire Aspect I will deal 0,5 heart of damage per second and Fire Aspect II will deal 1 heart of damage per second.
  1. Smite adds 2,5 damage (1,25 heart) to the damage originally dealt by your weapon, but it only works with the undead mobs (Zombies, Zombie Pigmans, Skeletons, Wither Skeletons). The added damage is increased by 2,5 with each level of Smite, so Smite I adds 1,25 heart, Smite II adds 2,5 hearts, etc.
  1. Bane of Arthropods is the same principle as Smite, but it only works with Silverfish, Spiders and Cave Spiders.

Hope this helped!
