Bartering with piglins is a great way for the player to get a lot of items. From gravel to Soul Speed books, many items can be obtained from bartering.


Piglins are hostile mobs that spawn in crimson forests, nether wastes, and bastion remnants. Unlike most hostile mobs, they do not despawn in peaceful mode. Piglins are also armed with crossbows and gold swords. An easy way to make them friendly with you is to wear any piece of gold armor. It is recommended to use the boots section, which is the cheapest and leaves the other armor slots for more powerful armor. It is also a good idea to build a piglin farm away from zombified piglins, soul fire, soul torches, soul campfires, and soul lanterns, because they will run away from them. An exception is if they are caged up with blocks. These objects can also be used to lead piglins to a certain place. Also, piglin farms must be built in the nether, or else piglins will zombify.


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.

Gold farming[edit]

You need to have a source of gold to run the farm, either from a zombified piglin farm or from another source, such as mining.

AFK Farming[edit]

An AFK farm is linked to a zombified piglin farm, then it can either travel with a water current or through a hopper system and drop out of a dropper or dispenser, and collects through a hopper system. To make the farm more effective, make a hopper organizer, as seen in this YouTube video.
