Is the piercing enchantment worth it in Minecraft?

It’s really up to you. The enchantment has advantages and disadvantages, so it’s entirely up to your discretion whether or not to use it. Some people prefer the unarmed damage that they can receive a critical hit, others might like the extra mana regeneration, so it’s about personal preference in this case. Of course, the important caveat is that piercing weapons don’t work against mobs with armor (except for zombies). Apparently these mob types don’t have any nerve endings where the weapon pierces through their body–pretty lucky of them!
