Since 1.14 Village and Pillage, Minecraft villages have seen a dramatic change. There's been a complete overhaul of how trading works is handled, the item economy and the tasks each villager has to take on. This will be a comprehensive guide to managing trades and your villagers. You should be able identify the most efficient method to acquire the things you require at the end. With that said let's get started!

How Many Villager Jobs Are There In Minecraft?

There are currently 15 villager jobs available in Minecraft. This is an overview of all the possible jobs a villager might undertake. You can place the job block that matches the job you're looking for next to the Unemployed Villager if you are looking to apply for an opportunity. The job given to the villager will decide what trades they will offer. If you don't have an Unemployed Villager, you can demolish the job block a villager is using. If you don't get the desired trades from a villager you can break the job block, then put it back down to reload their trades.

Villager Appearance:

Villagers' jobs may change based on their job, however the appearance of villager's appearance will differ in every biome. They will keep the specific characteristics to their work so that each job is distinct. All farmers will wear straw hats and all Librarians must wear glasses.

Stock trading

Mojang introduced the wonderful concept of 'Supply & Demand' in Mojang 1.14. This means that if a trade is repeated too often it will not only make the villager run out of inventory, but also prices (the quantity of the items or gemstones you must give) will increase. Trades can be made up to four times before stock runs out. Villagers will restock once a day. If an item isn't exchanged for any reason, the price will go down.

Unlocking Trades:

When a trade occurs between a villager and the player, both of them gain experience. The next level of trades is unlocked when the villager's levels increase. There are five levels of trades available to each villager, which unlocks more expensive items. The level of a villager is displayed by a colored badge on their clothing, which is a range of Novice(Stone), Apprentice(Iron), Journeyman(Gold), Expert(Emerald) all the way to Master(Diamond).

Wandering Trader

This is a little different however, there is a villager that is different from the others. The Wandering Trader is a passive Mob that appears randomly around the globe, with no pattern. It has two trading lamas with leash that are like normal llamas with a cosmetic alteration. Another oddity with this Villager is that it does not have trading levels, which means that the trades you've played with him are the ones you are stuck with. Don't worry, though your trades will reset when he spawns again.

The services offered by the Wandering Trader are regarded as typically obscure, and challenging items to get. Not the most impressive or effective, but valuable nevertheless. The Wandering Trader disappears within 40-60 minutes.


As an individual player, you are able to enjoy some level of fame. EXTREME CRAFT is decreased by performing negative actions, such as attacking villager, but increased by trading often or curing zombie villager. Negative actions can raise prices, while positive actions can reduce them.

Let's say your village is attacked in a flurry by Illagers, while you coincidentally happen to be in the area, and you successfully ward off the attack. You will be awarded the 'Hero Of The Village' status effect, which further reduces the cost of trade (except for trades that cost 1 emerald.)

These are the fundamentals of villager jobs and village trading. You should now be able manage that villager farm with ease! Mojang has a tendency to tear the rug under our feet frequently. Trading can be a little more complicated with Supply & Demand mechanics and popularity functions. You can make use of these features to greatly aid you, or completely ruin the trading economy on your Minecraft server. I hope this guide helped you well. Best of luck and I wish you all the best!
