Bartering is an action the player can perform with piglins.


Bartering is controlled by loot table minecraft:gameplay/piglin_bartering. 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, after which the piglin tosses a random item to the player, based on the table below.

The item the piglin throws may be one of the following:

Bartering items
Item given Quantity Chance Weight
Netherite Hoe 1 1226
Warped Nylium 1–5 5226
Splash Potion of Fire Resistance 1
Potion of Fire Resistance 1
Nether Quartz 1–5 10226
Glowstone Dust 1–5
Magma Cream 1–5
Ender Pearl 1–5
String 1–5
Nether Brick 1–5 20226
Crying Obsidian 1–5
Obsidian 1–5
Warped Fungus 1–5
Leather 1–5
Gravel 1–5
Fire Charge 1–5
Shroomlight 1–5

If the player throws a stack of gold ingots, piglins pick them up one at a time and toss a new item once every six seconds. Once there are no ingots remaining to pick up, they return to their normal behavior and may immediately attack the player.

Hitting a piglin causes it to put the ingot into its inventory and it cannot be bartered with again.[more information needed] This stored ingot is dropped upon death. Piglins who are killed in one hit before they finish examining drop the ingot with the same chances as any other held item.
