Questions about librarian

Here you will find detailed answers to frequently asked questions about librarian.

The only way to use the librarian's lectern is to put a book on it. A book opened at the lectern can be read by several players.

The most profitable trade with a librarian of the "Beginner" level is considered to be the exchange of paper (24 pcs.) for emeralds. Paper is not difficult to get in the game, so this resource is easy to accumulate if you set a goal.

At the "Apprentice" level, the librarian will give the player an emerald for every 4 books.

But the best thing a librarian can offer is enchanted books in exchange for emeralds and an ordinary book. Often the first enchanted book appears already at the "Beginner" level, but its charms will be weak enough. Therefore, it is worth holding the emeralds until the librarian reaches a higher level and offers to exchange books with strong charms.

On average, each librarian can offer up to 4 books with various charms. The price of each book is from 5 to 64 emeralds, and corresponds to the rarity and value of the charms. For example, a book with such an enchantment as a Repair will cost from 40 emeralds.

To do this, you can use the replacement of the profession of a villager. For a villager whose profession is not needed at the moment, the profession block (workplace) should be destroyed and he will become unemployed. Next, we assign him a profession in the usual way for a librarian (with the help of the lectern).

Note: the method may not work if a trade was previously carried out with this villager. In this case, the villager not be able to change profession.

"Mending" - is one of the most desirable charms for any Minecraft player. This is an opportunity to maintain the durability of tools in the game for a long time. However, it is impossible to create a magic book with enchantment for " Mending " on your own.

One of the options for obtaining it is trading with a villager librarian. For the appearance of such a book in the assortment of a villager librarian, it is not necessary to spend a lot of trade deals with him for a long time. Already a librarian of the "Beginner" level may immediately have a book for the " Mending " of the I level, but the price will be quite high. By trading with the librarian further, you can get this book with enchantment levels higher. Or combine two books on an anvil to "Fix" level I and get a total of level II.

If the librarian does not have the right offer, you can destroy the lectern and make another villager a librarian. How to do it better and the solution of possible problems is described in the same section.

In addition to trading, a book for " Mending " can be caught fishing or found in chests. But the chance of such a find is very small.

  • Important! This method can be used if you have not traded with this villager yet.
  • Prices and assortment may vary fr om one villager to another. Therefore, before trading, you need to familiarize yourself with the offers of all available sellers.
  • If you turn a librarian into a zombie, and then cure him, you can get a good discount on all his goods.
  • A librarian, like villager of other professions, has a lim it on the number of deals he can offer with one type of product. Over time, the quantity of goods for sale resumes.
  • After the successful completion of the raid, the librarian will give the player a book.
