Hi guys,

So I am curing zombie villagers in hopes to make a librarian. Heres my process...

1.. I start off with a lit up room for the zombie villager with just a bed in it, with no workstation nearby.
2.. I find a zombie villager, making it follow me into that said room I built with just a bed.
3.. I throw a splash potion of weakness and give it a golden apple
4.. The zombie villager is now cured, but defaults to a tool smith - even with no workstations around or nearby his little room
5.. As there is no current workstation, I put down a lecturer next to the villager in hopes to turn him into a librarian from tool smith, but nothing happens. He remains as a tool smith.

I have tried to do the above on 3 different zombie villagers. All with separate rooms. But all of them defaults to tool smiths.

I watched tutorials and you can change the villager's profession by destroying their current workstation and putting down a new one to reflect the required profession.

So this has raised the below questions -

1: Why do all the zombie villagers I cure always default to tool smiths even if theres no workstations nearby?
2: How can I change one into a librarian if they didn't have a workstation in the first place when I cured a zombie villager?

From my understanding the cured zombie villagers will have the jobs they were previously. You can see a bit of XP as if you had traded with them even if they were random spawns and you did not trade. I learned this the hard way trying to get a farmer for over 2 hours from the 3 cured zombie villagers I had. I even tried to cure them with just the compost in the area.

1. Have you checked the nearby area for workstations? They're supposed to default to nitwits, even if they're zombie villagers I think.

2. If you try to change the villager's profession without the appropriate workstation, the villager will most likely update it back into nitwit (because it always activetly searches for workstations if the block isn't there). However, I think {NoAI:1} might be able to stop the villager changing professions, since it's not moving/thinking, which is basically a double-edged sword.
