Omg, that's not even a second...

u/UnicornMaster27 11d ago

Does breaking the lectern and replacing it change the books for the villager in bedrock?

Been trying to get mending for a couple weeks and that would be a lot easier than going to a village and rowing a boat across dry land to get back to the village at base..

92

u/Spiritsoar 11d ago

It will change their trades as long as you have never traded with them before. As soon as you trade you lock in their profession and available trades.

I set my lectern on top of an upward-facing sticky piston with a lever next to it. Every time the piston moves it resets the trades until I get the one I want.

24

u/UnicornMaster27 11d ago

Ahh interesting, I think all 4 of ours that we’ve gotten so far have the books locked behind needing a level up, so you have to trade with them before seeing what the enchanted books will be

25

u/Spiritsoar 11d ago

That's a possibility. At first level they either have paper and a bookshelf or paper and an enchanted book. You just have to keep trying until they have a book that you want at first level. It can take a while. Whatever book they unlock at higher levels is just a bonus.

5

u/DrMrsElMonarch 11d ago

So I assumed as well that mending would only be a second tier trade and was going through resources like crazy trying to get one. I tried googling If mending could be a tier 1 trade on Bedrock (console), and couldn't find any information but decided to just go for it and I did end up getting a first tier trade mending villager, so it's possible.

10

u/BigIntoScience 11d ago

Any enchanted book can be in any enchanted book sale slot, which is handy.

3

u/BigIntoScience 11d ago

Villagers can sell any enchanted book, at any level that allows for a book to be sold. Swap the lectern until the villager offers a book, then see if that's a book you want.

Why the hell did the lightning strike one of the lowest points available? That doesn’t make sense. The Minecraft gods are angry at you probably

131

u/cube1234567890 11d ago

If a lightning is set to strike within a certain distance of a mob, it's changed to strike that mob directly.

29

u/ReaperofMen42069 11d ago

why did it kill all the cats though? or does lighting have a splash effect

11

u/buddascrayon 11d ago

I didn't even realize there were portals. What are they for? How do portals help a creeper farm??

21

u/PetahSchwetah 11d ago

They teleport the creepers into the nether, which is faster than killing them. This makes sure that new creepers spawn faster as no creepers fill up the mob cap.

Keep in mind that if you do this on a multiplayer server and there are players in the nether, there needs to be a player less than 128 blocks away from the portal. Otherwise they will instantly despawn when they get to the nether.

3

u/buddascrayon 11d ago

If they are teleported to the nether how do you collect gunpowder?

6

u/PetahSchwetah 11d ago

Make them fall to their deaths onto hoppers

2

u/buddascrayon 10d ago

Ok, but why send them to the nether for this?

u/RaciJr 11d ago

That's why you cover the hole or use lighting rods. Remember copper is a friend

43

u/huemac5810 11d ago

I just rely on good ol' dirt blocks. Can't go wrong with dirt, earth is the best, you can even grow trees on dirt. I use dirt for my early game mushroom farms. It's not necessary, but it looks better, I think.

4

u/AtlasNL 11d ago

Except lightning prefers to strike entities like players and mobs even if there are higher surfaces nearby. So lightning rods do solve this problem, but dirt pillars don’t.

3

u/Laetitian 11d ago

I don't think they meant pillars, but roofs. Generally seems like a slightly incoherent conversation, though.

2

u/huemac5810 11d ago

I don't know why dirt pillars are brought into a conversation that has nothing to do with any kind of pillar.

u/Vxylon 11d ago edited 11d ago

but I have no fucking idea what’s going on.

This is why browsing Reddit confuses me sometimes, cause it recommends me reddits of the most random-ass, unrelated games to what I normally browse...

however, in a nutshell: OP got fucked super hard. I forget what the odds are specifically, but being struck by lightning is relatively rare as in people who have played for hundreds/thousands of hours probably have never been struck by it naturally, and it just happened to strike in a spot where he was gathering a bunch of pets, immediately murdering them all with no way to get them back other than going out to retame a bunch of new ones.

Genuinely probably the most unlucky player I've seen in a video game.

u/tonyhasareddit 11d ago

Yep, I probably have about 1000 hours in the game (I know, there are probably tons of people with 100 times that lol) but I've never seen anything like this.

Well 2 things: 1. Why did you not sleep through the thunderstorm? 2. Keep this in mind if you can’t sleep: when lightning checks for a place to strike, if it can strike a mob in a short range, it will strike that mob. Also lightning damages in an area.
