    Agreed, but with how rare emeralds are compared to the other minerals, I think it would be better to place them at a higher tier. Maybe emerald equipment could have the same mining speed/protection/damage output as gold equipment, but with a durability closer to diamond?

    I think that given how rare emeralds are, they should perform on a level between iron and diamond

    Why does this have so many votes? This adds nothing of value, its just another armor no one would use.

    I think it would be way better if it had a bonus of better deals with Villagers or something.

    I think it shouldn't be that weak, but instead a rival of diamond armor. For example, diamond might provide better strength, but emerald could have better protection. So far, emeralds have no purpose but for villager trading. This would add another aspect to the game that has you decide whats important, like silk touch vs fortune 3.

    The reason the emerald equipment items are so low in stats is because you can trade with Villagers to acquire emeralds in mass amounts.

    Maybe only tools but no armor.

    Emeralds are used in this game as currency, and much like gold in real life (when it was still used as currency) it is redundant to use it as anything but currency and decorative reasons. Armour and weapons made of this material should not be undertaken for the sole reason that it is meant only to be currency and decoration

    Maybe emerald items are much easier to enchant and have stronger enchantments?

    We can still do the emerald stuff but add a new type of emerald that can only be mined with an efficiency diamond pickaxe. The emerald is Perfect Emerald, found in emerald ores (normal ones) and cannot be traded with villagers.

    This would add nothing to the game; furthermore it would be a waste of processing space! Sorry to shoot down your idea though :)

    We definitely don't need another tier of armor or weapons, especially a gem set. That's just my opinion though.

    Green being my favorite color, and given how easy the game has come to be, I would definetily wear emerald armor and tools, even if they are worse than diamond, but they should be made out of emerald blocks so you can't get mass amounts of them and or make it so you can only get them through chests, emerald could be to diamond like chainmail is to iron, but let emerald have a little advantage like have better enchantments.
    I really like the idea and you have my vote.

    I think that, because of the rarity, it should be stronger/ or more durable than diamonds

    Emeralds are only good for currency it would be nice to see some green tools and armor show up in the game.

    I think Emeralds are too easy to obtain from villagers and it wouldn't add anything to the game. 

    Perhaps if you made an emerald crown that took the helmet slot or belt that took the chest plate slot they offer no protection but could offer you bonuses for example...

    - pointing you to the nearest village (that might be better as an emerald compass)
    - increased chance of refreshing/upgrading a villager after trading
    - increase chance of iron glolem spawning
    - Iron golem follows you (like a sheep does when holding wheat)
    - automatically unlocks the second trade level of villagers without having to trade with them
    - ...

    but emerald weapons, armour and tools are a waste of resources in my opinion.

    Great idea but I feel that emeralds are rare so they should be stronger maybe between iron and diamond

    I disagree that emeralds should be so weak that they'd be in between two forms as useless as wood and gold. They're rarer even than diamonds, however if realism was to be incorporated, the toughness of diamond cannot be matched here, such that a strength between iron and diamond would indeed be reasonable.

    Of course, if we went by sheer rarity alone, emeralds should be stronger than diamonds.

    Emerald tools should get better enchantments, like gold tools, have less durability than diamonds but have the same armor points or a bit less and be able to be crafted.
    Or they could have a tiny less durability than diamonds, same protection from armor and be faster than diamond tools but only be found on treasure chests.

    Well, maybe it gave you a status effect it would be interesting. Maybe increased luck or smt useful at combat.

    I like this. However, I think emerald items would have to be made with gold, rather than sticks. I also think they should be ridiculous to enchant, having much higher levels that other things.

    This is a bad idea. First of all, they said not to put in stuff that's already in mods. Second of all, emeralds tools, weapons and armor just straight up aren't necessary or practical. The only way to get enough is too excavate entire mountain biomes and trade with villagers endlessly, and emerald just isn't something you would make a tool out of.

    I’d say maybe the tools being about as good as iron (if but a little better), and armor being just under diamond considering the rarity.
