Butcher's Best Deals

At the Beginner level, the butcher will give emeralds in exchange for raw meat. Therefore, if the player has accumulated enough meat after hunting or has a permanent source of meat in the form of a farm, then this can be a great way to get emeralds. At the "Apprentice" level, you can get an emerald for 15 units of coal, or buy ready-made fried meat for emeralds, if you don't want to waste time and resources on getting food through hunting and cooking.

If you develop the profession of a butcher to the level of "Expert", then an interesting deal with sweet berries will appear, for every 10 units of which you can get an emerald. And since sweet berries are quite common and easy to grow, this deal can be a good source of emeralds.
