There are 3 ways you can repair bow:
If bow is not enchanted, you can merge 2 bow right in your inventory to get 1, but with a larger amount of durability remaining. If one of the items was enchanted during the merge, the enchantment will disappear after the merge. No experience or additional resources are consumed with this method of repair.
When bow is repaired in the inventory, 5% is added to the total strength.
If bow is enchanted, it is better to repair on the anvil to keep or add enchantments. Repair can be done with a netherite ax, bow with charms or with the appropriate material used in the item’s crafting.
This method of repair consumes experience and additional resources.
Also keep in mind that when using an anvil, its strength is lost. Therefore, it is better to combine bow and an enchanted bow or a book on the anvil at once.
And don’t forget that each new bow mending on the anvil will cost more and more experience. That’s why it’s better to combine enchanted items right away.
When repairing the bow on the anvil, we recommend trying to swap items around, as this may reduce the amount of experience needed to repair it.
To restore the strength of bow, you can cast a ‘Repair’ spell. The item will then automatically regenerate its strength when you gain experience.
It is worth noting that the player will not receive experience that goes towards repairing bow But as soon as the durability reaches the maximum level, experience will be accumulated again by the player.
A book with repairing charms can be made on the enchantment table, fished out with a fishing rod or found in treasure chests, fortresses, mines, etc.
The fastest way to repair bow with the “Repair” spell is to put the item in your left hand and use your right hand to mine, fish, kill mobs or breed animals.
