Everyone, who has been playing Minecraft for some time now, know how irritating it is to deal with the villager mob in Minecraft. If you too are facing the same issue and looking for a way to easily breed villagers, don’t worry! Just take a look at our guide about how to breed villagers in Minecraft.
Added way back in Minecraft beta 1.9, a villager is a very helpful mob in the game. With trades that can get you to full ‘diamond armor’ within minutes, not trading with them is a big mistake. Villagers are a passive mob kind that does not attack the player even when provoked. They have ‘10 hearts’ of health and do not drop anything when killed. There are a lot of different villager types with different occupations. The occupations that villagers can have are – Armorer, butcher, cartographer, cleric, farmer, fisherman, fletcher, leatherworker, librarian, mason, shepherd, toolsmith, and weaponsmith.
Even though villagers are the most annoying mobs to handle, trading with them can be very beneficial. Hence, take a look at this article to know how you can breed villagers in Minecraft. This article will also inform you about the things that can go wrong while doing so and how to prevent that.
Breeding Villagers in Minecraft:
Trading with villagers is a huge gameplay mechanic and can get you stacks on stacks of emeralds when done right. However, to do that, you will first need some villagers. It actually is not very difficult to breed villagers. The only thing you will have to take care of is the availability of beds. My favorite method of creating a trading system goes as follows –
Find a village closest to your base and surround the village with fences. Light up the area so that no mobs (especially zombies) can spawn in the vicinity. Lay down a lot of beds randomly around the village. Then throw down either ‘Bread’, ‘Carrots’ or ‘Potatoes’ on the floor for the villagers to pick up.
Now let me explain what happens when you do this. In order to trigger villagers to breed, there should be at least one bed that isn’t acquired by another villager in the vicinity. Also, when you leave food on the ground for a villager to pick up, it stays in their inventory slot. If there is a farmer villager in the village, there is no need for you to drop extra food. But, I would still recommend you to do that since it speeds up the process.
After that, you should be able to see ‘heart-shaped’ particles all around. The takeaway from this is, just place a lot of beds down and give the villagers some food. They should start breeding right away. Now, even if you have a lot of villagers to create a trading system, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Let’s take a look at ways to prevent a mishappening that might affect your villagers.
How to keep your villagers safe:
There are two potential threats that can ruin your villagers in Minecraft – lightning and zombies.
I’ve already explained how you can prevent zombies from getting near your villagers. If somehow, zombies still get to your villagers, having every villager with a job, separated from the crowd will help. What is like to do is, create a 3*3 block space and put one villager in it. That 3*3 space will fit the workbench and the bed for that villager. Do this for every villager. So, if a zombie ends up turning your villager into a zombie, it won’t affect all of your villagers at once.
Lightning, on the other hand, turns the villagers into a ‘Witch’. This happens during a thunderstorm. Fortunately, the recent Minecraft update added an item called the ‘Lightning rod’ that attracts all the lightning strikes to it. Place a couple of lightning rods a bit further away from your villagers. This will make the thunder, strike on the rods rather than your villagers.
