How to Unlock New Shops in Minecraft: Dungeons
As begin your journey through the different levels of the game, you will begin to collect Emeralds – which is the official currency of Minecraft Dungeons.
So, you’re probably wondering how you can spend these green gems, well as you progress through the early levels of the game you will unlock two vendors – a Blacksmith and a Wandering Trader. These vendors will allow you to trade them Emeralds in exchange for a random artifact or gear such as armor and weapons.
You will first unlock the Blacksmith upon completing the Creeper Woods mission on Default Difficulty. Like the Blacksmith, the Wandering Trader will not be available immediately and will require you to complete the Pumpkin Patch mission on Default Difficulty in order to have him arrive at your camp.
Don’t stress too much about spending Emeralds as hording in Minecraft Dungeons can put you at quite the disadvantage due to the fact that you are missing out on potentially upgraded gear.
It is also worth mentioning, that the higher your level and difficulty, the higher the price will be to trade with the two vendors.
