congrats dude, i spent an ungodly amount of time trying to get mending and eventually just settled for unbreaking 3, then a couple days later i upgraded another librarian and he got mending lol. now mending shows up like 2-3 times whenever i’m trying to get another enchantment.
I have every op enchantment from librarians all for 1 emerald
How do you lower the price? Repeated zombification is a method I’ve seen mentioned before- is that how you do it?
Not OP, but I zombify them once and then spam lecterns til i get what i want
personally i find the enchantment i want for like three villagers, zombify them all and then cure them simultaneously
Cool, do you cure the villager several times to get it to 1?
If you truly want to abuse it, you gotta do this to several librarians
Buy a bookshelf for one emerald
Sell the books for one emerald each
Yeah I already have that setup I just was wondering how OP was getting 1 emerald trades
The effect can be applied up to 3 times. If you cure a villager 3 times you will obtain the maximum possible discounts
i have a nametagged zombie (so it doesnt despawn) and trapped it so he can hit the villagers in their cells
I just have a zombie spawner on bedrock so it spawns zombie villagers
As long as they're not in the same space as that can cause, uh... problems.
Fuck, you can re-roll just by replacing the lectern?
I was killing them and breeding new ones
Yes, but make sure you haven't traded with them at all before hand. On Bedrock Edition at least, trading with a villager once locks their roles- and subsequently their trades.
nice, i’ve got most every enchantment i need. right now i’m working on getting either sharp 4 or 5
i wish you the best!!
thanks! just out of curiosity, do you also experience a cap at 8 librarians? i’m on java btw
once they’re expert, they cannot level up anymore. My strategy for emeralds and xp is have many fletchers with stick, feather and flint trades, infect and cure them repeatedly until everything is 1 emerald and then spam trade all of them, you could get an emerald beacon in less than an hour with the right setup
i meant in terms of how many librarians you have. whenever i have 8 librarians, I can’t make any new zombie villagers a librarian unless i kill off one. thanks for the fletcher tip though, i’ll have to give that a shot
thats why you need a breeding room, when i get time ill upload a tutorial to the subreddit showing my design off. Basically just breed a bunch and have a rail system ready to deposit them into cells so you can trade easier
Let us know how many cures it takes to get to 1 stick to 1 emerald trade. 3 cures only brings down the price to 17 sticks and if you trade a lot, it goes down to 16.
Do you have any farms? An Iron farm is great with Armorers, Weapon Smiths and Tool Smiths. They are all guaranteed to have the 4 iron for 1 emerald trade. I have 8 of each. Also if you have a gold farm, the rotten flesh is a good trade with Clerics.... though you need to cure them a lot. The trade is the same as the sticks with Fletchers. 3 cures only amounts to 17 rotten flesh per emerald. Having Clerics is a must as you can stockpile a ton of redstone, lapis and XP potions. I have 10. Shepherds are okay if you have farms that produce lots of material for dyes like iron farm (poppies for red dye), cactus (green dye), bone meal (white dye), but you have to make a bunch of trades to level them up to see what dyes they can trade. It's time consuming to set up, but helps with zero waste from farms.
EDIT: Typo... 3 cures, not 34. lol
Now You gotta treat that village like a bed in bedwars
When you want mending books, just tell the game you’re looking for another one and you’ll get it.
My brain is huge Ik
I once had a naturally spawning mending villager he died then first try I got another which I was astonished.
If it takes you four hours it likely isnt worth it, I’d even take a sharpness IV villager for 37 emeralds
it was excruciating, i was thinking of settling for a sharp 4 ngl
Imagine my pain when I was trying to get a Sharpness V villager for 2 hours before settling on Sharpness IV. And then realizing half an hour later I already made a Sharpness V villager.
You could have combined 2 sharp 4 books and get sharpness 5
The problem with that is then you can’t max out your sword without it saying “too expensive on the anvil”
It’s my understanding that if you Combine the books first to make a sharp 5, then apply it to the sword, it doesn’t impact the enchanting cost nearly as much as if you apply sharp 4 book to the sword then apply the second sharp 4 book to make it a sharp5 sword
That’s not how it works, combine two sharp 4 books into a sharp five, and THEN apply it to the sword, it’s still only 1 book applied to the sword
It still counts as two books.
I believe it still counts as two. My friend made a maxed feather falling book and put it in her boots, and then couldn’t put another good book on it as it was too expensive
i wanted legit sharp 5 though :,)
That is legit...
Something gamechanging I discovered recently, you can cure villagers more than once, and the prices will go down even more. You could even get a 64 emerald trade down to 1 emerald.
Just cure the villager twice
Wait until this guy discovers enchantment tables.
You can’t get sharp 5 straight out of an enchantment table
the fuck? just cure a zombie dude
You can use sticky pistons to reroll trades lol.hook it up to a pressure plate and its as easy as walking back and forwards.
No I invented it myself
No j meant could u make one lol. It'll give upvotes I swear!
I don't really have a good way to screen record im on nintendo switch
bedrock and java redstone logic are completely different so some machines on switch may not work on pc
Maybe but I'm not sure what wouldn't work its just a pressure plate redstone dust and a sticky piston
Might be a difference in the villager trading mechanics. Moving on Bedrock may trick the villager into thinking that there workblock was destroyed, but on Java the villager might not register the change, or just notice the lecturn was moved, not broken.
The trick works on java edition
Woah! I'm going to use this so much.
i think in bedrock the villager just needs to have their workbench in the area to turn into that profession where as in java it can be a normal villager until their bench is in a 1 bench radius
Damn. I'll try to recreate it for u one day
Use the record button and then go to the album, there’s a newer feature that you can send stuff to your phone by scanning a QR code
I mean like literally just put a piston next to the lectern and a pressure plate next to the piston. Doesn’t really need a video
Thats as best as I can explain it
I DIDNT KNOW THIS, THANKS
Can you take a picture of what you mean if possible? Is it as easy as making sure the sticky piston is attached to the lectern? I'm sorry but I am just somewhat confused.
I'm not sure if it works on java but on bedrock its very simple. I'll try to upload a pic tomorrow
please do that
Does it need to be inaccessible to the villager or is moving it enough to reset it?
That's definitely Bedrock only, Lecterns are tile entities and can't be moved by pistons in Java edition.
You poor lad, I was able to get sharp five in 30 minutes just killing cows and mining using an anvil
I use a pickaxe instead, but to each their own.
Yeah I don't think an anvil is the most efficient, but I'm not one to judge
With a cured villager?
yes, kept curing them until they literally sold me 1 paper for 1 emerald and obviously an enchanting book for 1 too
so repeatedly zombified it?
yep, if you keep doing that the discounts get discounted
How long do the low prices last?
how do you zombify it, though? isn’t there a chance they die and you lose all your progress?
on hard mode, it’s 100% zombified, on normal it’s 50%
Ok so hear me out... If anyone can point out any flaw please let me know.
You can cure a zombie villager and their prices are lowered, you can do this until it's 1 emerald. You have two librarians, one selling a bookshelf, and one selling your targeted book of choice. I'd say mending or unbreaking III as it's the most useful. You continuously buy bookshelves for 1 emerald and then break it, selling the 3 books. Then just buy all the books you want. I believe curing a villager also lowers surrounding villagers.
its broke but it works lol
I also feel that fishing is really slept on for books and yeah getting a god rod is annoying at first, but once you get it you're set. great source of food, saddles, LILLYPADS!!!!!, enchanted books, enchanted bows, and pufferfish for potions. But the best part for the books is i've seen them with 3-4 enchantments on them. If you don't want it just use a grindstone for even more xp not to mention if you have broken armor and have mending from previous villager method.
I'm lucky and had experience shiny hunting in Pokemon, I can barely imagine how it is the first time anymore.
I have probably wasted about 5 irl days of my life at this point re-rolling villager trades.
I had a villager setup with Silk Touch, Fortune 3, Mending, Unbreaking 3, Sharpness 5, Prot 4, and Efficiency 5 all for 1 emerald each. Unfortunately my friends managed to get the sharpness boi killed when I was offline, and the efficiency guy has raised prices to 4 emeralds. I still have the others tho lol. I have 2.5k lecterns broken total.
press f to pay respects :(
That’s a great accomplishment! But can you beat me with a mending 1 book for 1 emerald? I seriously have a villagers who gives 1 emerald for mending 1 lol
yes, i have prot 4 1 emerald, sharp 5 1 emerald, efficiency 5 1 emerald, unbreaking 3 1 emerald, try me ;)
That takes some serious dedication, you deserve it my guy.
I had it for 1 em discounted but it was in a realm and we had a war so now its dead yayayayayayayay 3 h of work gone 👍
RIP man :((
This was how it felt trying to get feather falling IV
I spent like 5 hours trying to get a mending book and then when I get another villager... BOOM! Instant mending book for 8 emeralds less.
God bless your inventory management, I use the same order for the hotbar <3
its the best way :,)
Idek how you do that or what a lectern is, but we’re all proud of you
You're a god mate, don't try mending
Oof I got it my 5th try XD
FINALLY I LOVE THESE MOMENTS I BET YOU FEEL HAPPY NOW! CUZ I AM.
ITS HONESTLY LOVELY
I have a one emerald fortune three and I'm so happy because it didn't take me too long at all
And then the villager dies randomly
I feel your pain
I wen through that too. I was more lucky, it took me only 1hour. At least my book selling business worked well.
Lmao i use sticky pistons
now try getting a maxed book on each vilager
way ahead of you ahha
i think one time i stood 2 hours on a villager to get him to give me mending,then i zombified him cured him and i had like 10 books of mending for 1 emerald lol,i had all my things with mending,but sadly that world got corrupted and i dont have it anymore,i worked so hard on the world like i even killed the dragon got the elytra,i used a afk fish farm to get a amazing bow with power v and other things,i think im gonna start another play on another world ngl,i like grinding in mc its just so cool but so boring sometimes
That feeling when you get sharp v villager but just after that hear hissing behind you
I just finished my trading hall with every book trade for 1 emerald. It was the most pain I've ever felt
25 emeralds for sharpness V is also extremely cheap compared to what I have found it for.
One day I was trying to get a mending book, but I took so long that when I finally got it, I broke the lecterns from muscle memory. I rage quit shortly after
I spent an hour one time trying to get sharpness and as soon as I did I accidentally bonked the villager with my axe 😐.
Once I spent 2 hours trying to find efficiency V. I gave up and decided to accept an efficiency III.
How do people make the trades that low
How do you get villager trades to 1 emerald?
Zombify and then cure them. They'll be greatful to you for curing them so they'll lower their trades down to one emerald in most cases.
also keep in mind that you have a 0% chance to zombify a villager on easy and peaceful, 50% chance on normal, and 100% chance on hard
Ohhhhh, thank you for the infection rates!
I have a mending bro
Very cool! Remember you can always use a piston to move workstations, it works just as well as breaking and placing them
didnt know this at the time, thank you though
Lol I got unbreaking 3 efficiency 5 on a netherite pickaxe and unbreaking 3 sharpness 5 on a netherite sword whitout trading and I feel bad you had to spend so much time
i wanted the option to get it all back if i lost anything is all
I got this third try i didnt realize how lucky i was (original price was at 30 emeralds but he sells to me for 1)
Now that’s really cool, but to be fair, you could just double cure the villager
Wait really? For 25 emeralds a sharpness 5 should only need to be cured once
i did it for all my villagers, idk i’m new to this kinda stuff
It’s good to double cure librarians, free emeralds really with the book trades
i guess the strat is to infect then cure a bunch of fletchers for 1 emerald sticks, feathers and gravel and trade constantly. could probably get an emerald beacon in under an hour with it all set up
nah that’s not the greatest. You can only trade with them once a day otherwise their prices skyrocket the second trade for the day. Double cured librarians are the way to go
i do that also haha
Haha I’ve been trying for fire aspect 3 and knockback 3, settled for 2 with both..... also accidentally hit both villagers so I’m waiting till they aren’t mad at me....
they only go up to 2 bro, you wasted your time haha
Wait seriously?! Man I really gotta start researching this stuff....
i use the websites which tell me the best enchantment for each item
Might look into those, I’m not a super dedicated player so there’s a lot idk lmao
What are the chances for me to get it first try? Cuz I did and now i'm impressed
I know u can just zombify more than once right?
i did, but i mean actually getting a sharp 5 to begin with
Getting sharpness 5 has the same chance of getting as any other enchantment.
Let me give you some cheap advice, buy diamond tools by trading melons.
what profession sells them
Farmers, best way to earn cheap money. I powered my beacon through capitalism and fortune 3 axe. If you don’t have melon seeds, there might be a chance the wandering trader sell it.( also toolsmiths give you those sweet diamond tools. Also the guy who sell armor is good, you basically just buy a cheap set for a stack of melons)
Instead of this just get a villager to have any level of sharpness even level one and buy enough to combine them to sharpness 5 it's simple
i know i could do that but it was against the point, for some reason i wanted a legit sharp 5
Noice and I broke SO MANY LECTERNS TO GET MENDING IT TOOK FOREVER
I also have that but for efficiency 5 lol
Try making a villager trading hall with the best tier for each enchantment. Itll take you way more hours than this one but it will be worth it.
*you go out the menu*
*villager changes trade*
why would you waste a villager on sharpness V??? you can literally just make a tool have sharpness 5 in less than 1 minute of you combine 2
I remember spending days for power 5
Well done king
OH imagine if you accidentally broke the lecturn
I'm more impressed with the clean inventory, damn dude! But congrats on the books that's awesome. I take it you repeatedly cured the same villager for low prices?
Now put the Sharp V on the axe and watch your enemies cower in fear.
Alternative solution? Sticky piston and a button below the lectern. Simple
Sorry to disappoint, but that discount will go away and you'll have to buy it for the real price. Same thing happened to me, you have to cure unemployed villagers with the hero of the village effect to get that permanent discount.
Congrats man. It took me days to get an Unbreaking villager, can relate
How many villages did you save from pillagers?! 🤣
Not quite as bad, but same thing happened to me with 1 emerald - mending trade after probably 40 minutes. I bought more than I would ever need
I recently got all of my trades to 1 on bedrock, I could sell 1 carrot to a farmer for 1 emerald then use that 1 emerald to buy sharpness 5 or mending
Even though villagers are pricks and I hate them so much, they are the most overpowered thing in the game... You can litterary survive with nothing but a villager and a few farms to allow trading
I got extremely lucky, I already had unbreaking 3, mending, sharpness 5, and all of the crossbow enchants just from placing the lecterns once in my villager trading hall.
YOU LOVE TO SEE IT
Bruh this isn’t even that hard. Y’all saying I could’ve posted my 1 emerald trades and got 3k upvotes?
I got a mending villager quite early, he turned into a zombie tho, then I cured him and now I have mending for 1 emerald
does he know that a sharpness 4 can be added on a sharpness 4 to make a sharpness 5?
You poor soul, I did it in 3 tries just seeing what I’d get.
how is unbreaking I different from unbreaking II and Unbreaking III
God knows I get the struggle, ggs!
you can cure the villager multiple times to drop the prices even lower
RNG can be a total devil. It was Protection IV for me in my last world. It took *weeks*
Is this bedrock, because if so, I can agree with this
I play mostly Java tho
I would argue that that only costs a third of an emerald
You double cured it. You can only get bookshelves to one emerald after double curing. You know enchant books of 64 emerald price can be brought down to 1 emerald by curing a bunch. That’s how I get my 1 stone for 1 emerald deals.
Name your sword "its no use"
and novice aswell, You've done well my friend.
Oh that brings back memories... A lot of memories... A lot of bad memories... Villagers... My nemesis...
Seriously, these guys won't sell you a single mending book for hours, then after getting one and moving on the second they will offer one mending book every five trades! And that goes with any enchantment.
I did this with mending and boy did my index finger feel numb after finally getting the mending one
Now all you need is mending
We have this but EVERY trade in our realm
I'm still trying to find feather falling 4. At this point I'm starting to believe it's impossible it's been 2 days of trying
First time 😏 lol good job
Dude im serious i feel your pain
When I was getting vilagers on my last world I got what I wanted almost instantly like in the first 2 or 3 lol
Is it that relate to get an enchantment book trade that's worth 1 emerald, i have mending and it took me 3 tries
I know those feels. Congratulations bud.
Great for you! I have zero patience for that stuff
If I were to show my villagers on a server I used to play on, this sub would go nuts. Too bad I don’t play there anymore since the server owner turned out to be a pretty bad guy.
Anyways it was legit Unbreaking 3, mending, sharp 5, efficiency 5, and thorns 3 villagers all for 1 emerald each.
