Rancher is one of the twenty jobs available to all players. Ranchers raise all sort of animals, from large livestock to house pets.
Income and Experience
Ranchers get money and experience for killing cows, chickens, pigs, and mooshrooms, crafting passive mob eggs, shearing mobs, and breeding passive mobs.
Containment Egg Crafting
(Level 5+) Ranchers get the ability to create containment eggs, which allow players to capture a variety of mobs. This makes the mob into a spawn egg, which can then be used in your own town, or sold to other players.
|5||Leather - Captures Basic Animals||egg + leather||Cows, Chickens, Pigs, Sheep|
|10||Iron - Captures Tameable Animals||egg + iron ingot||Ocelots, Wolves, Horses, Donkeys, Mules, Llamas, Parrots|
|20||Gold - Captures Golems and Passives||egg + gold ingot||Bats, Squids, Mooshrooms, Rabbits, Polar Bears, Villagers, Iron Golems, Snow Golems|
Spawn Egg Crafting
(Level 10+) Ranchers get the ability to craft Spawn Eggs by combining the corresponding items using a Crafting Bench or using the /craft command. These may then be used to directly spawn a mob by right-clicking with the Spawn Egg in hand on the spot you would like your mob to be, but they can only be spawned inside your own town. They will spawn wild, so mobs like Horses, Ocelots, and Wolves must still be tamed after they have been spawned. As the rancher levels up, they will unlock more spawn egg recipes over time.
- Note all items must be spread out in the crafting area.
