Changes in Villagers

In this new Snapshot, they introduced Villager Trade Rebalance Part 2. This means that changes have been made to the villagers. In this article, we will review the new changes in villagers, including those among cartographers and blacksmiths. These changes are significant because villagers can play a crucial role in the development of your Minecraft worlds.

The new cartographer villagers

Previously, cartographers sold you maps of the Ocean Monument and maps to locate Mansions for a certain amount of emeralds. With these new changes implemented for Minecraft 1.20.2, they can now sell you seven new maps, allowing you to explore different locations, which was much needed.

The implementation of new changes to librarians made it challenging to locate librarians in each village in different biomes. Therefore, cartographers can now sell you maps that lead to different villages or structures, making it easier to find villages in various biomes. This is undoubtedly one of the best and necessary implementations.

Here you will be shown a table of what the cartographers sell you:

The new armorer villagers
