A wandering trader will spawn at Dawn and will either wander around a village meeting point, or nearby a player's spawning point. They are always accompanied by a couple of Llamas wearing unique decorations similar to the clothing the wandering trader wears. When a wandering trader despawns, it will leave its Llamas behind. However, a different wandering trader will eventually Spawn, carrying a different stock of items for sale. Like villagers, wandering traders will flee from hostile mobs, and will run around in a panic when attacked by a Player.
Either when they see a hostile mob or when it is Night, a wandering trader may drink an invisibility potion to become invisible. They will then drink Milk during the morning in order to neutralize the effect.
- Wandering traders are the second mob to have the ability to use potions, the first being the Witch.
- A wandering trader's voice is different from normal villagers.
- Wandering Traders can spawn anywhere where there is enough space for them and their llamas, which allows them to spawn in flat worlds or in, say, a glass dome at the bottom of the ocean.
- Wandering traders will not turn into witches when struck by lightning, but normal villagers will.
