It’s well known that wandering traders don’t offer the best trades. This pack aims to remedy that while maintaining balance and sticking to the Vanilla idea of the trader.

-Various other new trades

-Many trades give more items

-Many trades have had their price decreased and/or have had their max uses increased

-Some trades for common and easily available items have been removed

Feedback is very much welcomed! If you have ideas for new trades or how existing ones could be tweaked, let me know!


To use this in your world, you need to drop the downloaded .zip file into your world's datapacks folder. You can find this in the following directory:

/.minecraft/saves/<world save>/datapacks

The "<world save>" is whatever your world's file is named.

There is no need to unzip or unpackage anything.

Installing Updates:

Delete the old version of the pack and paste in the new one. Do not reload the world (either by rejoining or typing /reload) before pasting in the new version. Simply pasting without deleting can cause issues with files not being properly removed, replaced, or renamed.
