Fortune Enchantment increases the drops that the players get while mining, digging or breaking using the tools that the enchantment is applied on. This applies to everything from Ores like Diamonds, Gold, redstone, etc and even simple drops like berries and stones.

Players can get the increased number of items and it depends on the level of enchantment. The Fortune scales into three stages those being Fortune I, Fortune Ii and Fortune III.

The loot drop is increased in each stage and the chances of rarer items to drop also increases exponentially.

Players must note that Fortune and Silk Touch cannot be applied to the same tool and therefore are mutually exclusive.
