    How about an enchantment that bonds the player to the shield so that when the player gets hit where the shield isn't the player takes less damage

    I completely agree with this idea! Although several already existing enchantments should be allowed for shields in an enchantment table as well, such as protection, thorns, etc.

    Did you know you can enchant the shield with mending? For the rest, you are right

    Craft with a slime ball to allow you to hold and claim arrows blocked by the shield instead of them reflecting back at the shooter.

    They should add a parrying mechanic. When you sucessfuly parry an attack, the opponent gets staggered for a short moment, allowing you the opportunity to gain the upper hand.

     

    (Like in Dark Souls)

    I personally think there should be a shield bash, and also a type of thorns on the shield if you block from something it gets damaged.

    first of all, FORTRESS IS NOT LIKE UNBREAKING!

    Fortress is an interesting and unique idea, it is like a tank or support enchant. 

    And I think this idea is great.

    The fire brand should also light arrows or other projectiles on fire once blocked, in my opinion. But great idea!

    Parry Enchantment would be a nice addition.

    It would reflect damage to an opposing entity by releasing the shield at the appropriate time.

    For a good idea on what it would look like I'd look up the game Dead Cells.

    Here's the enchantment I would add.

    Castle: Makes the shield protect you from all directions, can be activated by crouching and using the shield. It will also protect other entities (but I think that it should drain your hunger bar faster than normal.

    Honestly I feel there is no reason to add brand new enchantments. Shockwave should be knockback, barrage should be thorns and firebrand fire aspect. Fortress is cool and should stay this does give the shield new enchantments to use which are basically the same.

    I was thinking about adding in enchantments for the shield but I'm glad you did because those names say everything!

    Put protection enchantments in shields and some armors enchantments like Thorns would be nice, but the shield is already too op defending explosions so we could add the blast protection enchantments and nerf the enchanted shield

    Any of the Protection enchantments AND Thorns would be more than great additions to the Shield to make it even more helpful in combat. Also add true iron and diamond shields to the game modifying the recipe to include more iron or more diamonds in place of the wooden sections of the shield. Obviously, these shields would have more durability than the standard wooden one.

    i was thinking the same thing. 

    one thing i would like to see though is an enchantment that lets you run faster with the shield equipped.

    I Have a idea. I Think shield could have a enchantments like charging. it'll make you able to charge the shield. and Charges foward to mob. it affects a half of wielding weapon's damage.(Enchantment Will be applied and Enchantment damage boost won't be reduced.) if weapon has not wielded,it'll deal 2~4 hearts of damage instand. this enchant can applied with Firebrand,Shockwave,Barrage,And Fortress. Firebrand will make a Impaled mobs on fire, Shockwave will make A Shockwave Around 1~3 Blocks depending How higher level the enchant has. Barrage will increase Impale damage. and it'll Scatter 4~8 shards at 35˚ spread at front of the user. these shards will deal 2~4 damage per each shard,and it'll set entity on fire when Firebrand enchant has applied together. and shockwave enchant will make a Shard Explosive. a shard explosion won't break any blocks. but it'll deal a 1~2 damage with an 2 blocks of radius. shard color is Dark Orange at default, with firebrand,the shards will be on fire. with shockwave,the shards will make a windy particle. firebrand with shockwave shards will set nearby mobs on fire. and Level III Barrage will Create 8 Seekers. Those seekers will chase Nearby Hostile mobs targeting you,and It'll deal A 2 Heart damage. Seekers will only chase Nearby Hostile mobs,and Neutral mobs in Hostile State. and it'll chase a Impaled entity.

    Maybe not making "Barrage" a random chance of activating, because RNG is bad game design. But overall, good idea. I voted.

    Maybe a enchantment where when u block with the shielf it blocks in a full circle around you and when u use it with fortress to make the bubble bigger so range attacks like blaze skeleton llama or ghasts cant hit u

    I disagree with most of these. Fireband is too op, fortress makes no sense, and barrage is just wierd. Shockwave could have a new name and work on arrows too. Thorns should be the other enchantment

    Enchantment idea: Mirror: reflect projectiles where aiming (like when hitting ghast fireball).

    I feel like firebrand doesn't exactly work in my own opinion but possibly something that may deal some damage to attacking mobs. Such as a shield with spikes on it, or thorns. Another possibility could be splintering in which when the shield takes damage it will send out projectiles in random directions in front of the player using the said shield, the only downside to this being the at the shield breaks quicker.

    Generally, I like the concept of adding more shield enchantments. However, I think some of the ideas such as firebrand and barrage are not appropriate as sometimes the shield might be used in some situations where it’s purely used as an defensive tool, such as when facing neutral mobs or transporting hostile mobs.

    How about mending and undertaking? It needs those.
