Illager banner


Illager Captains


  • Triggered when a player goes to a village with the Bad Omen status effect applied to them.
  • A large group of illagers that come to attack villages and kill the villagers.
  • Mobs appear in waves – the amount of mobs and length of waves is 3 on easy, 5 on normal and 7 on hard regardless of Bad Omen level.
    • Version exclusive: Higher bad omen level, doesn't give extra raid waves.
  • A raid boss bar will show the player how many enemies are left.
    • Version exclusive: Boss bar color is pink, instead of red.
  • A sound similar of a battle horn will play during raid waves, centered from raiding mobs.
  • Version exclusive: Pillagers and vindicators that spawn from raids drop special loot.
Illager patrols
  • A group of 2–5 random illagers that spawn in the world.
  • One of the illagers will be a raid captain.
  • Version exclusive: Illagers are always pillagers on easy and normal difficulties.
  • Version exclusive: Can spawn in snowy taiga and giant tree taiga biomes, but cannot spawn in snowy tundra biomes.
Status effects
  • Added Bad Omen
    • Version exclusive: All players will receive bad omen if all beds destroyed or all villagers are killed during a raid.
  • Added Hero of the Village.
    • Gives trading discounts.
    • Only given to players within raid defeated village boundary, for 3 in-game days.
  • Updated the villager trading UI for pocket and classic UI profiles.
  • Revamped the trading system, for each villager type.
    • A experience bar will show the player the villager's level and what next trades are available.
  • Players will receive a discount from villager trades if they have the Hero of the Village status effect.
  • Added villager economy supply system:
    • The supply of trades is only restored when the villager is given the opportunity to work at their job site block.
      • Up to twice per day.
      • Villagers can be resupplied instantly by using the command /resupply.
    • When the villager's trades are restored to full, it takes whatever supply was used up (number of trades), and converts that into a price increase called "demand". Demand goes up by the amount of supply used, and down by the amount of supply not used.
    • When villagers make trades, they gain experience. When they gain enough experience, they level up. Leveling up unlocks new trades, which are locked until the villager is at the appropriate level.
  • Version exclusive: New Achievements, which include:
    • Plethora of Cats - Befriend twenty stray cats (20G)
    • Kill the Beast! - Defeat a ravager (30G)
    • Buy Low, Sell High - Trade for the best possible price (50G)
