Repairing SWEM items (armor and tools) does not require experience points, instead it uses certain ores and cantazarite that can be found in small veins underground. This abundant resource makes repairing your costly armor and tools an investment that can be maintained for a long time with good care, unlike other powerful vanilla armors that cannot be as easily maintained without mending enchantments.

  • Riding Boots require ores relative to their material tier - ie Iron ingots to repair iron boots.

The cantazarite anvil can also be used to apply enchantment books to SWEM and vanilla tools or armor and naming items or nametags. The benefit of a cantazarite over a normal anvil, is the cantazarite anvil does not deteriorate with use and offers its benefits easier to beginning-game given its considered 'cheap' to make. Renaming items in the Cantazarite Anvil is always free and requires or consumed no experience levels.
