    This achievement can be attained after winning a raid. Upon winning you should see the hero of the village symbol on the right (an effect emerald with a ribbon)

    You need to speak to one of the remaining villagers, and complete one of their trades that has been reduced

    Heres how I did it:
    seed: -1813740965

    I recommend using a starter chest so that you can craft a boat and make your way to the locations faster. Also, make sure you are not on peaceful, as the pillagers won't spawn

    First, go to this blacksmith's chest and if you're lucky you will find iron gear which will help a lot:

    1491, 64, -725

    Now make your way to the pillager outpost at 1530, 70, -520. Here you need to kill the raid captain, he's the guy with the banner on his back. Once he's dead, and you have the bad omen effect (Read eyes effect on the right) make your way to the village to defend:

    1500, 70, -420

    Here the raid should start and three waves of 4 lots of enemies should attack (In my experience). Once they are all dead you should receive the hero of the village symbol on the right (an effect emerald with a ribbon)

    You now need to speak to one of the remaining villagers, and complete one of their trades that has been reduced

    Thanks to Shadow Kisuragi for making the first version. I've upgraded and optimized it. Download it from here (version 1.11.0) Will add a Win10 and WP version later (.mcworld)


    I've run over once with a 2nd account, my 2nd account now always spawns nearby, not sure if it is for everyone. Upon spawning, you're at coordinates 554, 69, 381. Over here (other side of the wooden structure), feed fish to the cats in the 2 holes until you've tamed 20 of them.

    Interact with one of the 2 grindstones on top of the wooden structure. Place the enchanted sword and the regular one in and extract the regular sword that comes out. DISENCHANTED

    Now kill the creature (pillager captain) inside the wooden structure I'VE GOT A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS

    Now head over to the village at 560, 70, 466. Upon entering the village, the raid will start. During the first wave, you'll earn WE'RE BEING ATTACKED

    Survive the 3 waves of pillagers. The iron golem kills quite a lot of them as well. Also, pay attention to what direction the pillagers spawn. Sometimes you can't find the last one, he can usually be found in the direction that the pillagers spawned in that wave. In wave 3, you have a chance to pop KILL THE BEAST Otherwise, spawn one in with the eggs in your inventory.

    Everyone who killed at least 1 pillager during the raid, will get the hero of the villagers effect upon completing the raid. This is needed for the BUY LOW, SELL HIGH achievement. Find one of the two villagers to trade with. The pillagers who you killed earlier dropped emeralds, otherwise kill cows which are usually in the village or harvest carrots. Trade one of the discounted items with one of the villagers to get this achievement. You will lose the effect if you get too far away from the village!

    The last achievement can be a bit buggy. SOUND THE ALARM You need to ring a bell while an enemy is in the village, thereby forcing a villager to hide inside one of the houses. What worked best for me was to dig a 1by 1 hole at around 561, 70, 471. Spawn a stray in there with the spawn eggs. Place a bell next to the hole and ring it. The villagers should enter the 2 houses nearby. A good indication of it working is green sparks coming from the bell or the villagers. If it doesn't pop, try to push the villagers out, respawn the enemy or move locations with the enemy and bell.

    On to the next update toast
