Easy Magic Minecraft Mod
By Dalton Whalen
Despite being around for nearly 12 years now, vanilla Minecraft’s enchantment tables have remained relatively unchanged. While this block received an overhaul in 1.8 which added a Lapis Lazuli requirement for enchantments, very little has been achieved outside of this. Following this, many players may turn towards mods in order to bring this decade-old block to the next level. Introducing Easy Magic, a Minecraft mod that redesigns the enchantment table experience while maintaining its original charm. Whether you reroll enchantments with the click of a button or simply want to watch items float in the air, it is an excellent inclusion to any server world. With this in mind, we have created this Apex Hosting tutorial to assist you in downloading and using Easy Magic.
Easy Magic is a Forge and Fabric mod owned by Fuzs, with LunaPixelStudio’s credited as the mascot. The mod spans from versions 1.15.2 up to 1.19.3 with over 11.2 million downloads at the time of writing. Easy Magic adds various quality-of-life features to the enchantment table, allowing you to store items, reroll enchants, and more.

How to Get Started
Upon first spawning into the game, nothing will be immediately altered, as the mod primarily changes the effects of the enchantment table. To get started, simply craft an enchantment table as you would in the vanilla game. Once you add your item and lapis lazuli, you will find these new changes.
One of the largest adjustments added throughout this mod is the ability to reroll enchantments without needing to actually perform an enchantment. For the cost of 1 Lapis Lazuli and 5 experience points, the enchantments will be rerolled. This can be done as many times as necessary until you receive the desired outcome.
Additionally, any items placed in the enchantment table will remain even after you exit. This means that both your lapis and tools will stay until you return. This can be extremely beneficial if you need to leave the table for a few minutes or want to enchant a tool later on.
Once of the coolest changes made by Easy Magic is a new way to view the items that you keep in the crafting table. If placed within it, Lapis Lazuli can be seen orbiting the table in the air. If an item is placed with it, that will also float above the enchantment table as you get close. While the visualization doesn’t affect any gameplay itself, it’s a fun feature to make your world feel more vibrant.
If the mod’s default setup doesn’t suit your needs, you can also adjust a variety of settings. This can change the required number of bookshelves, whether you can reroll, and how many of the enchantments will be shown when hovering over an option.
- From your Apex panel, stop the server until it is marked as Offline.
- Return to the
FTP File Accessfrom previously, but enter the
- Locate the
easymagic-server.tomlfile, then press
Editto the far-right.

Once the server is restarted, your changes should take effect, allowing you to continue with your customized adventure with Easy Magic!
Oftentimes, this issue means there is either a problem with the server starting up or with the mod itself. If you are receiving a connection refused error, check the server console for any potential errors. Additionally, ensure you have installed Easy Magic and its dependencies on both the server and client itself. If a player is missing any of the mods, they will be unable to join and play.
If the game or server crashes upon startup, this is likely due to an error with the installed mod files. Verify that the Forge download is matched with Forge and the same is done if running on Fabric. If errors persist, check that the required dependencies have all been installed alongside the base mod, as it cannot function without it. Once this issue is resolved, restart the game once again.
When editing a configuration file, there are many potential issues you may encounter. If a config isn’t saving, ensure the server is fully offline before making any changes to prevent anything from being overwritten. Additionally, make sure any formatting found in the file remains, as adding an incorrect capital, space, or forgetting punctuation can break the file. Once all of this appears correct, press Save and start the server once again.
