    Solution for the NEWEST tutorial world... (retested on 7/7/17)

    This can be done in the tutorial, albeit with some reloading of the level.

    Right when you load up the tutorial, skip it by pressing B when available. Take the first right after the stairs and look in the chest under the frames with the firework in them for 64 pages. Then, head back and to the left of the beacon. There are two frames with emeralds in them. Hit them to collect the emerald. (It may or may not count towards your total) Look into the chest and you'll find 30 more pages. Turn off autosave, then save the game. Then, trade the pages with the villager in the right pen for 3 emeralds.

    Quit to the main menu, load up your save file, and you should spawn right in front of the villager with 94 pages. Turn off autosave again and repeat the process.

    ProfessorPlutoWorked for me. Had the tracker open and it showed progress after each trade. Taking the emeralds from the frame did nothing though.

    Leo AscendentQuestion, I'm making a world to get a handful of achs, can a player just open a chest, pick them up, and put them back and still earn it? I would assume so, but am at work so I can't test it.

    MAJORPOOPYNo. That doesn't count as "mining or purchasing" If you put in 30 emerald blocks to mine or a villager to trade with and all the trading materials that would work.

    Here's what I did.

    1. Go into the tutorial level.
    2. Go to the enchantment room.
    3. Destroy all the book cases. You should end up with 2 fulls. stacks plus like 34 books.
    4. Go to the villager in the town entrance. Grab the 32 pieces of paper from the chest.
    5. Disable autosave and make sure the games saves.
    6. Approach villager and trade the paper for 1 emerald.
    7. Exit the trade window. Wait for villager to level up, he will have green diamonds and red swirling things around him.
    8. Open trade with him again, this time he will take 9 -10 books for one emerald.
    9. You should be able to get 7 more emeralds from him.
    10. Exit trade window and let him level up again.
    11. Sell more books for 7 more emeralds.
    12. Exit trade window again. Let him level up.
    13. Trade until you run out of books.

    You should be able to trade for about 18 emeralds. It literally took me about 5 minutes to get this. Once you get these 18, exit without saving and do it one more time. It's alot faster than trading one at a time and exiting.

    Hope this helps!

    This is quite simple, though it may take some time. Remember that emeralds only spawn in extreme hill biomes so don't go mining for them anywhere else. Another way is to trade with villagers. The farmers are probably the easiest ones to get emeralds from because they trade most crops (carrots, potatoes, wheat, melons, and pumpkins.)
