Level up the armorer villager

Please note that only armorers at Expert and Master levels are able to trade Diamond pieces.

Similar to the other villagers, armorers have five different proficiency levels: Novice, Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, and Master. To increase their levels, players need to trade with them as many times as possible. To get to the Expert and Master level, players need 150 and 250 exp respectively. This process can take a while to complete.

The best trade to gain exp is the "coal for emeralds" deal. The armorer villager offers one emerald for 15 coal, which also provides two XP for it. Coal is plentiful and can be found everywhere in the overworld. This trade also let you gain emeralds in order to exchange for the armor pieces later.

Trade glass panes with cartographers

Cartographers are easily the most broken villager in Minecraft. You can create a cartographer by placing a cartography table next to an unemployed villager.

While players can farm emerald using sugarcane to paper trade, the glass panes trade that unlocks at Apprentice is much better. They want 10 glass panes for 1 emerald. To make 16 glass panes, you need 6 glass blocks, which equates to 6 blocks of sand via smelting.

A stone shovel mines a sand block in 0.2 seconds. To get 100 emeralds needed to trade for a diamond armor set, you only need about 9 minutes of digging sands.

This trick gives infinite emerald with literally zero effort, however, the preparation is pretty tough.

  • Firstly, you need to turn a normal villager into a zombie villager. Lure the nearest zombie you can find to the villager to infect it.
  • Afterward, cure the zombie villager by hitting it with a splash potion of weakness then feed it a golden apple. Once it's cured, the villager will give you great discounts.
  • Put a lectern close to it to create a librarian villager. Before trading, make sure it’s offering bookshelves. If it doesn't, break the lectern and place it again to refresh its trades.
  • Buy as many bookshelves as possible then destroy them to get the books. Sell the book back to the librarian.
  • With the discount, you can buy a bookshelf with 1 emerald, which contains 3 books worth 3 emeralds. Repeat the cycle for infinite emeralds.
