Step 1: Find a Villager
The first step in making a blacksmith villager is finding a regular villager. You can usually find them in villages, which are generated structures that spawn in the world. If you’re having trouble finding a village, try using a seed that’s known to have one.
Step 1a: How to Find a Village
To find a village, you’ll need to explore the world. Villages can spawn in a variety of biomes, including plains, savannas, and deserts. Look for clusters of buildings and dirt paths to indicate a village is nearby.
Step 1b: How to Transport a Villager
Once you’ve found a villager, you’ll need to transport them to your base. The easiest way to do this is by using a minecart. Place the minecart next to the villager, and they’ll automatically hop in. Then, push the minecart to your base.
Step 2: Create a Blacksmith Station
Now that you have a villager, you’ll need to create a blacksmith station for them to work at. This can be done by placing a furnace and an anvil next to each other.
Step 2a: How to Craft a Furnace
To craft a furnace, you’ll need eight cobblestone. Place the cobblestone in a square shape in your crafting table, leaving the center square empty. This will create a furnace.
Step 2b: How to Craft an Anvil
To craft an anvil, you’ll need three blocks of iron and four iron ingots. Place the blocks of iron in a T-shape in your crafting table, and then place the iron ingots in the remaining squares. This will create an anvil.
Step 3: Trade with the Villager
Once you’ve created the blacksmith station, the villager will automatically become a blacksmith. You can now trade with them for valuable items like enchanted gear and emeralds.
Step 3a: How to Trade with a Villager
To trade with a villager, simply right-click on them to open their trading interface. They’ll offer various trades, each requiring a certain number of emeralds and a specific item.
Q: Can I make multiple blacksmith villagers?
A: Yes! Simply repeat the steps above for each villager you want to convert into a blacksmith.
Q: Can I change a blacksmith villager back into a regular villager?
A: Yes, simply remove the blacksmith station and the villager will revert back to a regular villager.
Q: Can I customize the trades a blacksmith villager offers?
A: No, the trades offered by a blacksmith villager are predetermined and cannot be changed.
Making a blacksmith villager can be a great way to get valuable items in Minecraft. By following the steps above, you can easily create your own blacksmith NPC and start trading for emeralds and enchanted gear. Happy crafting!
