How to Use a Blast Furnace to Create an Armorer Villager

Blast furnaces are used as a job site for villagers in Minecraft. When an unemployed villager comes across a blast furnace, they will automatically become an armorer.

Armorer Villager Profession

Armorer villagers are a valuable type of villager that can trade you armor items. They can even trade you enchanted diamond armor items, which are the most valuable trade items they offer.

However, these trades can be expensive. One way to save emeralds on these trades is to earn a favor from the villager.

Earning a Favor from Villagers

To earn a favor from a villager, you must win a raid in their village. Winning a raid will grant you a lot of loot, and it will also earn you a sale with every villager who has something to trade.

Here is a summary of the key points:

  • Blast furnaces can be used as a job site for villagers in Minecraft.
  • Armorer villagers are a valuable type of villager that can trade you armor items.
  • You can save emeralds on trades with armorer villagers by earning a favor from them.
