    Talk about a way to ensure completionists are forced to come back to your game after completing it beforehand. warning
    There is always a way.

    That's a garbage achievement. Not looking forward to this at all...
    If at first you don't succeed, lag switch.

    If this tracks, then it’s more so just booting up tutorial and then gunning for it. Though that will still be grind and luck involved depending on what the traders want for the emeralds

    I've been real tempted to buy Minecraft since it's on sale at the minute. Have already spent a very large and unfocused amount of time pottering about on the 360 version. This does seem a bit of an odd choice to add a single grindy achievement rather than the usual charming and mildly silly updates.

    The WP edition needs to die asap. Shit like this is why im glad the 360 version died

    Love the game, but the trader achievement was one of my least favourite in the original game...still, I have my time spent achievement yet to get, so I shall just potter round trading!

    It's not a bad achievement if you go for it just after starting the game. Only really sucks for the people that have finished this.

    Shouldn't be much of a problem when using an achievement world.

    Just a final statement against notch.

    Notch never wouldve added this. Now 3 days before 10 year anniversary a grindy achievement without value and no new content is added along with this update
    They might change the achievement, if enough people complain about it. On the other hand, there are enough people who completed way more grindy achievements.
    Further, if Notch wants to complain about Minecraft, he shouldn't have sold it. I'm also glad that M$/Mojang didn't invite him to celebrate 10 years of Minecraft.

    It was posted Mar 18th, 2011. He was referencing that the promise of none of this 1000+ bullshit would happen.

    I just have to go back and do the 360 version, but I’m glad I never started these. Having to repeatedly boot up multiple versions for one or two achievements at a time sounds super annoying. No thanks.

    Lovely little ratio boost, though. It'll be grindy, yes, but not too bad for those with a plethora of resources.

    The adding of this achievement has now fixed "The Haggler" achievement, which was previously glitched on all platforms.

    I just unlocked it on Nintendo Switch, and it's now been unlocked on Xbox One and Win10 by people on TA as of today.
