How to cure a zombie villager?
Turning a zombie villager into a healthy villager requires the following steps:
1- The first thing you must do is to catch the zombie villager but you must make sure that it is not exposed to the sun and that the villager is protected, because when it is converted it will be attacked by the other zombie villagers. It is best to trap it in a house, in a cave or anywhere under a roof, i.e. in an enclosed structure with a roof so that it does not get sunlight, keep in mind that zombie villagers are found in dark places with little lighting.
2- The next step is to affect the zombie villager with a potion of throwing weakness. You can buy the throwing potion from villagers or find it in a chest. It is also useful any kind of element that causes weakness, even a weakness arrow.
3- After you have weakened the zombie villager, you must give him a golden apple and remember to do it within the time limit of the weakness potion. If you do so, the Zombie villager’s particles will turn red and start shaking. If you wait about five minutes he will heal and become a normal villager.
The golden apple appears generally in the altar chests in the underwater ruins, when opening normal dungeon chests, in the chests in the forest mansion, in the chests in the mine carts in the well and even in the altars in the fortresses.
TIP: If you want to speed up the healing process of the zombie villager, make sure he is near a bed, this will make the healing process much faster, as the healing effect takes time to occur.
