As leather for books, for bookshelves is quite pricey, not alot of new-ish players have the money to get a complete Enchantment station. Also many people have been asking "is there a enchantment table i could use?", I suggest making a enchanting station at spawn. Maybe in the National Archives, to get more attention to that building. Or even below the spawn tower? Make another staircase pas the free stuff chest going to an enchanting level. Or in the Capitol building as that building doesn't have any practical use...

Well, to that I would counter that this IS a Vanilla server, and why should brand new players have access to an Enchanting Station?

That's not to be mean at all, but it's game balance: once you have gathered the materials and levels to build your own Enchanting Station, you will have earned the right to enchant your items.

In general, no, I don't have any sympathy for users wanting a public table.  Enchantments aren't required for play, but just encha....I mean, enHance the gameplay further.  Those who want a table are perfectly capable of getting the materials needed for one, and yes, perhaps it will take some time.  And that's alright.  Instant gratification is one of the banes of our society (IRL).  Users wanting "Food now!" or "Public Enchanting!" or "Gimme a House!" or "HelpMeHelpMeHelpMe!" are usually the last ones I'll be helping.

IIRC, there is a shop or two around spawn that has an enchanting station, and I KNOW that the National Archives doesn't have any secrets.  Of course not, that's just silly.

It's a good suggestion, though, and one worth discussing.  That's just my personal take on it.

I agree with LightWarriorK, and have nothing to add except my support of his post.

QFT. Although I agree that a public enchanting room is an interesting idea, new players have a choice of paths that lead to access to enchantments:

  1. finding cows and farming leather, mining diamonds, and collecting obsidian and wood;
  2. purchasing the required materials from shops;
  3. befriending an established player and obtaining permission to use his/her enchanting room.

Aside from the satisfaction of having earned the right to enchant, each of these paths has the added benefit of forcing new players to become more fluent in a critical aspect of server life, be it gameplay, economics or socializing, respectively.

i'm against it, beginners already get a lot of "free items" to start out (free food, tools, a boat, etc.)

it's also a way for people to socialize (i know i've made some friends for showing them my home and offering them to use my enchantment table)

also there are already some publicly accessible enchantment tables near spawn in several shops (including my free standing shop)

I'm sorry, but we are fresh out of silver platters to serve with.
