Here I am going to share some of my villager trading tips and strategies, have a look:
Trade sticks with fletchers. (The Best Strategies!)
It is the best trade in villager trading and it is the easiest way to get emeralds from villagers. You can get sticks easily by chopping up trees, while one wood worths 8 sticks (1 wood -> 4 wood planks -> 8 sticks). Every 32 sticks you trade to him, you will get one emerald.
Avoid trading an offer with a villager to their last slot
It will increase the price of that offer. Wait until it works at their job station so they can research their trades.
Good Villager Trades
Trade compass to cartographer (compasses are cheap to make) and trade wheat/carrots/beetroots to farmers (can be obtained from village farms). Trade unwanted raw animal meats to butcher (Kill animals) and trade clay to stone mason. (Get clay from lakes and ponds). These kind of items are easy to get. This can help you to get emeralds easily.
No attacking and killing!
Don’t do anything that affects your reputation like attacking and killing villagers, this may result in higher prices.
“Hero of the Village” effect
If you get the “Hero of the Village” effect by defeating raids, you will get a discount when trading with villagers. Make the most out of this effect! The effect will disappear after a few days. 90 minutes precisely.
Curing Zombie Villagers
When you successfully cure a zombie villager, you will get a forever discount by the villager you cured.
Destroy the work stations and rebuild another one
This will change the villager’s job. You can do this when you think that villager job is unfavourable to you, mostly because you think the trade offers suck. Unfortunately, this technique can only be used on villager that wasn’t traded with. It will not affect your popularity.
Make the villagers breed
You can trade with more villagers if you do so! Build more beds and give villager your food by throwing food to them. Food that can be given to villagers are wheat, potato, carrot, beetroot and bread. You can also give farmers seeds so they can farm food to themselves. Villager will breed once fulfill the above conditions. (Refer to the photo below for the breeding process.)
Sorry, I know this sounds bloody. However, they are totally useless in villager trading because they occupy a bed and have no trades. I don’t mean to kill them personally because you will get attacked by iron golems if you do that. Try to lure the nitwits to lava and fire OR lure them to zombies (Zombie will choose to attack villagers first rather than you, so it is safe to do that!), it is easy to do these because they sleep late.
