As you play through vanilla Minecraft, you are sure to encounter some of the various available trades. Whether you hang out in a village or wait for a wandering trader, they can provide easy access to useful items. Many feel that the trades are not as helpful as they could be though, leading players to install various mods.

How to Get Started
Once you spawn into your world, you may not immediately notice anything different. However once you travel to specific areas, you may find one of the new traders.
Goblin Types and Location
There are two main traders added through the mod, each of which has their own unique items.
The first type of trader is the overworld Goblin Trader, which can be found in caves underground. They have a love for apples and will pick up any that are found in the area. Goblin Traders do not appreciate being hit, as they will be completely knocked over.
Vein Goblin Trader
The second type is the Vein Goblin Trader, which is found exclusively in the Nether. While they do not share the love of apples, they are fireproof and offer significantly improved trades over their cave-dwelling counterparts.
The trades offered by each Goblin Trader differs across each one you find, however the largest differences are found between the two types of traders.
The Overworld goblin trades tend to be a lot simpler and may offer a way to earn some emeralds, gain extra ingots, or gain music disks. In some cases, a rare trade will be available to gain an upgraded enchantment.
The Nether goblin trades are much more powerful, offering the ability to purchase totems, netherite scrap, and more. They often have many trades that offer improved enchantments, such as Protection V.
Following that, you now know how to install Goblin Traders and some basic information on how to find them. While the mod itself is relatively simplistic, these small changes can completely revamp your survival experience. The ability to gain better enchantments is great as it is, but they provide an excellent way to earn important items or other tools. Each trader has a unique trade catalog, so make sure to check every one you come across. With this in mind, you are ready to hop into your Minecraft server and begin your trading journey!
