At the Beginner level, the cartographer will buy 24 sheets of paper from the player for one emerald.

After that, install a new workplace. At the same time, the range of products will change. Important! This method can be used if you have not traded with this villager yet.
  • Prices and assortment may vary from one villager to another. Therefore, before trading, you need to familiarize yourself with the offers of all available sellers.
  • If you turn a cartographer into a zombie, and then cure him, you can get a good discount on all his goods.
  • A cartographer, like villagers 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.
