Types of Villages and Villager Jobs
This guide will talk about all types of villages and will also explain how villager jobs work.
🌆 Types of Villages 🌆
Villages are structures that spawn naturally in the Minecraft game in different biomes.
All villages should naturally have a garden of vegetables that can be looted. Don't forget to look inside houses for chests to loot.
Each village looks different depending on the biome it is located in. The villagers will also look different.
Some examples of villages types are the following:
💠 Plain/ Usual Village
💠 Desert Village
💠 Savanna Village
💠 Taiga Village
💠 Snow Village
💠 Meadow/ Water Village
Each of the villages that we talked about has a lot of villagers that you can interact with to trade different items.
🧑🏭 Types of Villagers and Jobs 🧑🏭
Villagers are a good way to get good trades in Minecraft. They will have different items to trade and will look different depending on what job they have and which biome they are in.
NOTE: To assign a job to a villager, you just have to put the proper block in his house and he will automatically take that specific job.
Jungle and swamp villagers will only spawn if a village is intersecting randomly with one of the two biomes.
🔁 How to Trade 🔁
As we said, you can trade with any villager with a job.
To assign a job to a villager you just need to place the specific block near him or in his house and he will automatically be assigned.
Depending on the job a villager has, he will have different things to trade. To add to that, each villager has career levels. Each level will improve the items he has to trade. You can level up a villager's career by continuing to trade with him.
Each villager has 5 career levels which they can achieve by trading with you. Also, each one will have a badge with a different texture depending on the level:
Novice (Stone Texture)
Apprentice (Iron Texture) - 10 XP/ Levels
Journeyman (Gold Texture) - 70 XP/ Levels
Expert (Emerald Texture) - 150 XP/ Levels
Master (Diamond Texture) - 250 XP/ Levels

💠 Wandering trader and piglin bartering
The wandering trader appears randomly in-game, not in a village.
The wandering trader always has two lamas with him.
You can trade with the wandering trader various items without any pattern.
Be fast, the wandering trader will usually despawn after 60 minutes.
Piglins are mobs that can only be found in nether and which will attack you if you do wear any gold armor piece.
If you throw a gold ingot on the ground near a piglin, they will take it, examine it, then throw back a random item.
If you hit a piglin, it will confiscate your gold ingot without completing the trade.
Keep in mind that you can only barter with piglins, not with brutes or zombified ones.
The ~number% represents the percentage change of receiving any items in its quantity range, from any group, per gold ingot.
🪄 Trading Tips 🪄
When trading you should consider the trading stock, meaning the idea of a supply needed for villagers. If you do a specific trade too many times, the villager will run out of that specific item and the price will increase as it is a wanted item. Usually, a trade can be done around four times before the stock runs out. You'll have to wait about half a day to trade the item(s) again. Villagers restock their supplies twice a day.
Each player has a popularity level around villagers. You want yours to be as high as possible to get better trades. The popularity increases or decreases depending on your interactions with the villagers. You can raise your popularity level by trading often or curing zombie villagers. Also, if you protect villagers attacked by Illagers, you will get the Hero of The village title, which will reduce the trade prices even more. Killing villagers or their iron golems will decrease the popularity level of the player.
When you get trades with enchanted tools, weapons, and armors, the enchantment level will be a random one between 5 and 19. Also, the enchantments are never treasure enchantments.
If your world does not contain structures like the Woodland Mansion, the map will not be offered as a trade.
Tipped arrow potion effects can be level I or II, sometimes with a longer duration.
The leather armor has a random color created by two dyes.
For enchanted books, the enchantment is chosen randomly. You have an equal chance of any enchantment and level for it. So you have the same probability to get a high-level enchantment as you have to get a low-level one. The price in emeralds depends on the enchantment level and status. If it has the treasure status, the price is doubled.
If you have any issues regarding villagers and trades feel free to contact us on live chat or via the ticket system.
