You can use it to make mobs drop different items and tools with different probabilities and added effects. It doesn't have every feature of loot tables, but it's simple and easy to use.

Where To Put Your Loot Table
When you create a loot table, you can either have it replace an existing table or reference it when summoning mobs or placing chests.
To replace an existing mob loot table, go to your save folder's
data folder. In it, create a folder called
loot_tables. Then, create a folder in
minecraft. Next, under
minecraft, create a folder called
entities. Finally, find the entity in the following list and put the loot table code in that file.
- sheep (folder)
- sheep.json (sheep without wool)
To replace an existing chest loot table, go to the folder you created called
minecraft. Create a subfolder called
chests. Then, find the chest in the following list and put the loot table code in that file.

loot_tables folder you created inside the
data folder. Create a new folder. You can name it whatever you choose; it is called a namespace. A good choice is your username. Inside this folder, you can place all your loot table files. All of them must end with
.json. You can organize them into subfolders as well.

DeathLootTable:"[namespace]:[path/to/file]"where [namespace] is the name you chose for your namespace and [path/to/file] is the name of your loot table, including any subfolders it's in. Don't include the
