Each time players complete the Labyrinth, they may imbue one piece of equipment with a random enchantment, a special type of implicit modifier. Completing the Labyrinth in higher difficulty levels allows the player to enchant a wider range of item types. In normal difficulty, only gloves can be enchanted. In cruel, both gloves and boots can be enchanted and in merciless helmets, gloves and boots can be enchanted. Each difficulty, higher versions of the enchantments from the previous difficulty become available.
Enchantments replace other implicit modifiers, including previous enchantments. Any level of rarity, even unique items, can be enchanted. Mirrored or corrupted items cannot receive an enchantment.

Gloves can be enchanted with effects that trigger a Word skill during combat. Word skills cannot be modified by support gems, and have a short cooldown between activation. Glove enchantments come in four tiers, based on difficulty: Words for normal, Edicts for cruel, Decrees for merciless, and Commandment for endgame labyrinth. Higher difficulties result in stronger Word skills.
Helmets can be enchanted to have effects that benefit a specific skill. There are two or three of these skill-specific stats for every player skill, amounting to over 300 in total. The Vaal version of a specific skill is also affected.
