Wandering traders will always appear when Minecraft players least expect it. They'll spawn in the middle of the ocean, underground or almost anywhere where players spend some time.

The all-too-familiar sound of a wandering trader is burned into the minds of Minecraft faithful. They're known for having pretty bad trades overall and having llamas with them. Here's everything one needs to know about them.

For two emeralds:

  • Glowstone
  • Sea pickle

For three emeralds:

  • Cactus
  • Brain Coral Block
  • Bubble Coral Block
  • Fire Coral Block
  • Horn Coral Block
  • Tube Coral Block

For four emeralds

  • Slimeball

For five emeralds

  • Saplings
  • Nautilus shell

Most of these items can be acquired normally, but some of them, like the coral blocks or glowstone, can be difficult and even dangerous to find.

You can run, but you can’t hide from your favourite intrusive salesman, the Wandering Trader. What wares do you like to see when they appear? (And don't you dare say lead.) https://t.co/Oy1l1heAXr

Wandering trades are often targeted for leads. Leads are difficult to acquire, but players can get two by eliminating either the wandering trader or his two llamas. They do not drop any XP after perishing, which is the same while trading with them, unlike villagers.
