How to unlock the Zombie Doctor achievement

    Zombie villagers look like villagers but have shredded clothes and greener skin. You can find them anywhere you can find zombies, although they are much rarer. To cure one, you need two items:

    1. A splash potion of weakness
    2. A golden apple

    The items must be used in this order. The achievement will unlock as soon as you use these items on a zombie villager. You do not need to wait the 5 or so minutes for it to transform.

    A splash potion of weakness is created by brewing a fermented spider eye (spider eye, sugar, brown mushroom) in a water bottle. You do not need a nether wart for this potion. Then you need to add gunpowder for it to become throwable.

    A golden apple is crafted from an apple surrounded by 8 gold ingots.

    If you are looking for a world for this specific achievement, and since it's a bit tricky to import worlds on this version of the game, you can use the solution suggested by u/WaveSmashReddit on Reddit (all credit goes to him/her):

    I copy/paste the instructions just in case the Reddit thread happens to be removed:

    "Make a new world using the seed "SNEEZE" of course without the "". Turn right and head straight into the snow. You'll find an igloo with a hidden bunker under the carpet, coordinates 820, 71, 29. There will be a Villager and a Zombie Villager in separate cages. You can take the golden apple from the loot chest and the splash potion of weakness from the brewing stand. Just throw the potion onto the Zombie Villager and use the Golden Apple on him afterwards. (You can't throw the potion at him through the iron bars. Break one of them)."

    This is the seed I used to unlock the achievement, on the 1.11.1 version (05/22/2019). Please let me know if it no longer works with future updates.

    Start a world on easy with the seed 1410403532 with coordinates activated and go to 64 64 172 where is the location of an igloo. Inside the igloo you will have to destroy the carpet to access the underground laboratory. Inside the lab you have everything you need to do this achievement. Take the potion of weakness inside the brewing stand and the golden apple inside the chest, then break the bars that hold the zombie villager and throw the potion of weakness on the zombie and then use the golden apple on him. After a few seconds he will be healed.
    Note: this achievement took a week to pop up for me.

    Do you know how this code was found? Having all the items and the relevant enemy in one place is a blessing.
