Channeling is primarily an enchantment in the popular game Minecraft that can only be cast when placed on a trident. This is used as a lightning summoning. The max level that enchantment can reach is level 1, but it is justified as the purpose remain the same at even the higher levels. This is an enchantment that is very fun to use because it makes the player feel safe but also not very overpowered, so there is only a slight edge and not a very significant advantage. To keep it in easy words, it makes the player protected but not invincible. This enchantment is primarily used for bold summoning when during the rain, the mob is hit.
Although if there is too much foliage in the environment, then the bolt of lightning cannot be summoned. It needs an open space to hit the mob. The enchantment is not at all compatible with riptide enchantment. If on a trident a command is placed to force it to be riptide enchanted, then channeling will not work. However, it will be applied on technical terms. Even though the summoning of a lightning bolt cannot be done if the mob is hit by a trident of channeling, but they still will be affected if the lightning strikes nearby. For example, if a trident hits the player armor standing next to a creeper in water, the summation of lighting is normal, but the creeper will be charged from being affected by the lightning radius.
