The process is coming at a high level; hence, it is most probably for the pro players who have already got a hang of the game. The enchanting process is therefore very complicated. In this enchanting guide, we will walk you through how to enchant items in Torchlight 3.

How to Unlock the Enchanting Table and Altar in Torchlight 3

Firstly, you will need to have an Enchanting Table and Altar to be able to enchant items. You don’t have to worry much about this as it is a part of your tutorial. Once you have the Enchanting Table and Altar in place, you become eligible for enchanting items. However, you cannot do that yet as the enchanting recipes will drop only after level 47.

The Altar will help you get essences that are used to enchant items. You can place some items into the Altar to break them down and create the essence.

Another thing to note is that for an item to be enchanted, it needs to have enchantment slots available. Only when the enchantment slots are available for a particular enchantment, the process can be completed.
