Bartering

Bartering is an action the player can perform with piglins to obtain various items.

Mechanics[edit]

To barter with a piglin, a player either throws a gold ingot near the piglin or uses the gold ingot on it. The piglin takes the gold ingot and appears to examine it for six seconds in Java Edition or eight seconds in Bedrock Edition, after which the piglin tosses a random item to the player. ‌In Java Edition 1.16.2 and Bedrock Edition 1.16.20[upcoming], piglin brutes cannot be bartered with.

Piglins pick up many other items that are made of gold; however, ingots are the only items that piglins accept for bartering. Baby piglins are incapable of bartering and treat gold ingots like any other gold items.

Hitting a piglin causes it to "confiscate" the ingot; the piglin does not complete the barter. It cannot be bartered with again unless it puts another item in its inventory. This stored ingot is dropped upon death. Piglins who are killed in one hit before they finish examining always drop the ingot.

Bartering is controlled by the loot table minecraft:gameplay/piglin_bartering. If the gamerule mobGriefing is false, Piglins only barter when the player uses a gold ingot on them.
