Questions about mason

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

Finding a mason in the village is a real success for those who like to build various structures and pay attention to the decorative interior decoration of the premises. If you have emeralds in exchange, then you will receive chiseled stone bricks, blocks of polished rock (Journeyman), colored or glazed terracotta (Expert). And when a mason reaches the Master level, a quartz pillar and quartz blocks will become available, which are not always easy to find or get in Minecraft.

But most of their deals are best ignored in favor of this single emerald deal: A Novice level mason will buy 20 stone blocks fr om you for 1 emerald. Since there is a lot of stone in the world around you, you can earn a decent amount of emeralds. The lim it of such an exchange is 16 transactions. At the Journeyman level, the mason will exchange 16 blocks of andesite, diorite or granite for 1 emerald, which is also a good deal.

The stonecutter is very effective as an alternative to the Crafting Table for some stone recipes. To create various blocks, he only needs one ingredient. Stonecutter allows you to skip the processing steps for crafting some blocks, getting the final block from the initial block.

In addition, it should be noted its cost-effectiveness. For example, using a Crafting Table, you will get 4 stone steps out of 6 stone blocks, and a stonecutter turns a stone block into steps in a 1: 1 ratio, that is, how many blocks of stone were used, so many steps were received.

The stonecutter can process copper blocks.

The profession of a mason has several levels: beginner, journeyman, craftsman, expert, master. The level becomes higher with each transaction made with this villager, the range of goods changes and increases, discounts appear. Depending on the skill level of the mason, the color of the buckle on the belt and some elements of clothing change.

To get the maximum discount from the mason, you need to win the loyalty of the villagers: develop the village, do not take things from the chests, protect the villagers from raids, and not reduce the population.

To do this, you need to change the profession of any less valuable villager. For a villager whose profession is not needed at the moment, we destroy the profession block (workplace), and he turns into and he turns into an unemployed person. Next, we assign him a profession in the usual way (for a mason - with the help of a stonecutter).

Note: the method may not work if this villager has previously been traded. In this case, the villager not be able to change profession.

  • The new work block is 40 blocks away from the villager.

  • If the stonecutter is placed under the note block, then the sound of the "big drum" will be played.
  • Prices and range of different masons may vary. Therefore, first you need to familiarize yourself with the offers of all available sellers.
  • If you turn a mason into a zombie, and then cure him, you can get a good discount on all his goods.
  • The mason, like villager of other professions, has a limit on the amount of goods that he can sell. Over time, the number of goods for sale resumes.
  • After the successful completion of the raid, the mason will present the player with a clay block.

In order for an unemployed villager to become a mason, you need a free bed and a working block of a mason (stonecutter) who is not occupied by any other villager. The bed and work unit must be within the reach of an unemployed villager.
