Anvils are special interactive blocks. The original purpose of anvils was to restore items to their original durability. However, later, anvils were able to combine enchantments on items, which became extremely useful for creating powerful weapons and items. Anvils can also be used to rename objects into whatever the player would like to name it. However, all features take up experience to complete the task. Renaming objects reduces the cost of all later work done on the renamed object in the PS3 edition. Also, anvils can be dropped onto players, reducing damage, and most likely killing them.
- If a spawn egg is renamed Dinnerbone or Grumm with an Anvil, the mobs spawned will be upside down. Note: This has been fixed as of 1.6.
