No trades left[edit source]

What happens if you trade with a villager until they cannot be traded with anymore?67.160.25.176 23:44, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

You can no longer trade with them? I don't see what information you are trying to get.
For the most part though that will not happen, as trading unlocks old locked trades. KnightMiner t/c 23:55, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
I mean if you can no longer trade for the last offer, you can no longer reunlock trades.67.160.25.176 00:00, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Did you read the article? Any offer now unlocks locked trades (since 1.8). KnightMiner t/c 00:21, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
And if you manage to be so unlucky that all trades are locked, then you're just out of luck with that villager. Anomie x (talk) 01:45, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

20% chance to reactivate locked trades[edit source]

Just wanted to clarify what the 20% chance to reactivate locked trades means. For example, I am trading with a farmer villager who has locked trades, and he has a trade where he will give me an emerald for 8 pumpkins. If I have 64 pumpkins to trade, does this mean that if I trade all 64 pumpkins in one trade, there is only a 20% chance for the locked options to unlock, or does that mean there's a 20% for each 8 pumpkins I trade, even if I trade an entire stack at once (so 20% chance * 8 trades of 8 pumpkins for 1 emerald)? If it's the former, does this mean I have to trade 8 pumpkins at a time, or trade 8 pumpkins, close and reopen the trade window, and trade another 8 repeatedly to make the offers unlock? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Ons96 (talkcontribs) at 14:33, 31 March 2015 (UTC).

When you trade a stack of 64 pumpkins for an 8 pumpkin trade, it is counted as eight separate trades, so the 20% chance is done eight times. Separating the trade into multiple times or combining it should have no effect on the chance. KnightMiner t/c 14:48, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. Ons96 (talk) 17:54, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Message?[edit source]

I've got a message that told me I should put something here, instead of putting it where I was trying to, but I cant even edit this page. so, can someone help me? (Pika Party) 98.216.47.99 20:58, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

What do you want to do? Also, please use "Add topic". The BlobsPaper.png 22:06, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
I was trying to add something for history about Villagers offering something new on console, so then I did it. But then I went back to the page and it was gone, So I tried again like five times and then a message appeared saying that I should add it on the trading page, but I can't. And also, thanks for letting me know about "Add Topic" I didn't see that there. :( (Pika Party) 98.216.47.99 22:39, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Create an account to edit the page. The BlobsPaper.png 02:43, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Due to excessive amounts of vandalism, the page has been protected so only autoconfirmed users can edit it. Also, IP addresses may correspond to multiple users; if you check contributions for your IP address you'll see that it made some edits in January and had no major activity until July. Assuming that you weren't editing on that same IP back in February, it is likely that the message was intended for the previous user. -Sonicwave (talk|c) 03:15, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
I assume you mean librarians offering name tags? If so, then
 Added. Why did you wait so long to request the edit though? That happened back in Januray. KnightMiner t/c 03:54, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Don't know why I waited so long, but I edited the door page but they didn't take my edit away. How come? (Pika Party) 98.216.47.99 21:16, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Chain Mail[edit source]

Trading is not the only way to get chain mail armor in vanilla. It is dropped, though rarely, by hostile mobs who happen to be wearing it. 72.47.105.5 19:00, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Profession and offer choice[edit source]

I didn't see it on the page and it seems to be worth mentioning: I found that when villagers spawn, their profession and first trade offer are only chosen (based on their robe colour) after you interact with them. Meaning that if you have two different saves with the same villager, his profession will not be the same if you have not right-clicked on him before. For instance, a black apron villager will not be a tool smith or a weapon smith until after you have opened the trading GUI. Can anyone confirm this? 78.213.9.41 09:37, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Enchanted books[edit source]

I need details on what Note 2 means ("The enchantment is chosen randomly, with equal chance of any enchantment type occurring and equal chance to get any level of it, so higher-leveled enchantments are as likely to get as low-leveled enchantments."). Does it mean that the algorithm for enchantment picking picks first an enchantment (1 out of 27) then picks the level of the enchantment (I up to V depending on the enchantment) or picks simultaneously the enchantment and its level (so 1 out of 82 I think)? For instance, is Unbreaking III as likely to get as Mending? Thomas645 (talk) 14:13, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

It first picks an enchantment then picks the level of the enchantment. Anomie x (talk) 20:43, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. Thomas645 (talk) 10:02, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Cartographer trades[edit source]

Hi Anomie x, what's the story with cartographer's exploration-map trades? Are there two ways to get those maps -- one with just emeralds, and one with emeralds + a compass? I am having trouble interpreting what you've put in the Price and Quantity columns. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 16:45, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Fixed. I copy-pasted and didn't update the columns correctly. Anomie x (talk) 13:29, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Article request/Verify[edit source]

Can someone verify the following: Cartographers will not sell exploration maps in worlds that do not have the corresponding structures. Tested in superflat, not sure about Customized. If so, can you add it to this article somewhere (likely as a note by the cartographer's trades...)? -172.68.58.123 22:05, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Anyone? -172.68.58.123 20:42, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Interesting. From what I see, that only happens in superflat. If you do it in Customized, or in regular with generate structure = off, two things: the /locate command works (but leads you to nothing) and the cartographers will sell you maps (which lead you to nothing). – Sealbudsman talk/contr 21:11, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Request for edit[edit source]

Remove "and damaged tools cannot be traded in place of fully repaired tools." There is nothing with durability that a player can trade with a villager. /82.145.222.118 17:37, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
