    Villagers traded mending before 1.14, and at the time it was not overpowered. It's the new trading mechanics that made it overpowered, so I don't think removing mending from villager trading is the best solution.

    They should give you better books based on popularity instead of lowering their prices imo. Mending villagers used to be valuable before 1.14 but with the new mechanics, they're literally so common. Another way to change it would be to increase the price of rare books to be much higher.

    I don't think it should be removed but I think the enchantments they offer need to keep their rarity. High level enchantments should not have the same chance to be offered as low level ones.

    What is wrong with keeping the armor you worked so hard to obtain?  I think a better option would be to cap the XP cost increase on the anvil to double the cost of the first repair.  That way it still has a significant cost, but it is manageable.

    The whole villager trading system breaks the game entirely. It's just way too easy to get certain items now especially enchanting books. The old system was fine because villagers are randomly generated. But now if you don't like a villager trade, you can just remove the lectern and door trading station and just replace it back to you get what you want. If you find a village, it's so easy to get the enchantment book right off the base of the game. People just don't seem to get that it breaks the game. Back when Minecraft was in earlier days, you just had to get unbreaking or back in Minecraft, 1.9 when mending was added. It was harder to get the enchantment.

    Takes a lot of work to put together a trading hall, and to get the mending price lowered. I think mending should stay as is, because all of the work that is put into it should be allowed to succeed.

    I couldn’t agree more. Balance is so important for keeping effort and reward equally. Not only has it become very easy to get a mending villager. But also the trades have become more unbalanced. Why should I bother to trade fish or coal when I can get 1 emerald for 1 stone or a mending book for 3 emeralds+book?  I think a mending book should be at least 48 emeralds worth. Sometimes prices rise a little but quickly drop again. I suggest setting the value of items to a more fixed value. For example 32 Stone = 8 coal = 6 fish = 4 leather = 1 emerald. And if the same items are sold in high quantity’s raise the price for a longer period of time so players are motivated to trade a larger variety of items with different villagers.
