    given how easy it is to get emeralds from villagers i think the idea of emerald equipment would be way too powerful.

    Horrible Idea! Emeralds can bei easily obtained by traiding with Villagers so IF they are going to add Emerald Gear anyway, it should be worse than Iron Tools.

    no. emeralds are a currency. if you want more armor/tool options put rubies back into the game.

    It is a bad idea.

    Emeralds are money, but not mineral in any way.

    No, because emeralds are a currency for Villagers and are really rare to find while mining. It think having emerald armor and tools would sorta be wither unused or mess up the economy.

    Guys, I think you have forgotten that emeralds would add nothing. Once you are Good enough to trade for or mine emeralds, you already have at least some iron armor, and possibly diamond tools. 

     

     

    There is no point!!

    I feel this would make them lose their uniqueness.

    If this useless idea gets added to Minecraft in the same unimaginative way that it is in the mods, I will kill people who use it and burn their armour and tools.

    Edit -- there are other minerals that have no use for armour and tools such as Redstone. Why should a trading currency become part of our armour and tools?

    emeralds are supposed to be a currency and not a useful ore. The reason emeralds are so rare is so u can mine a lot of them easily and be able to buy everything from the village.

    People are saying emeralds are rare however 6 pumpkins can get 1 emerald so they clearly not as rare as diamonds. However this could be a good idea if in instead of being used for protection it could be used to buff trading.

    Why do people always say emeralds are rare, go to a village already

    I feel that is should have the second highest natural efficiency (behind gold) and as strong as between iron and stone and armor should have less durability then iron but have more protection and have lucky enchant rate as gold.

    @Frankiethekat05  Emerald isn't the rarest since trading with villagers are so easy to find and trade with. Same with raid farms. Emeralds aren't rare and so it shouldn't be so strong.

    Here is a solution to the debate on whether emerald armor should be added, with the introduction of smithing table functionality in the betas and snapshots, we can stud iron or gold armor with emeralds, diamonds, lapis, or anything else we want with new updates. tools have a new range of upgrades in reach starting with netherite and continuing with this stuff. also emeralds are easy to get, harvest that farmer villagers crops for him and get rich.

    Emerald armor wouldn't add anything of value to the game. It would either be just a cheap version of diamond or a pointless armor set. A better idea would to be able to add gold or emeralds to any type of armor in the smithing table. Adding gold would make piglins non-hostile and emerald would give better trades for villagers.

    I think it is bad because emeralds are for trading.

    I don’t really like this idea because emeralds have a different use. They are villager currency. Personally, I like what they did with netherite, and that should stay for about a year, then another tier of armor. I don’t think this new tier should be emerald, though. It should go along with either a new dimension or a new metal/ore/block (maybe a fictional material). Minecraft needs 2 things right now: a new dimension and a new boss.

    I think that the more emerald armor you have the better discount villagers will give you. There would also be tools because it would be cool

    No. Just NO. Emeralds are special and unique, here's why:

    • trading, with which you can get both enchantments and the second-highest tier of armour. 
    • powering beacons, as it is the only block that can power beacons that are not used for armour and tools. (giving it its own special use so you don't have to use up your gold, iron, diamonds or netherite)
    • decoration, yes this does count as a use, hence the honeycomb block.
    • not everything has to be an armour/tool it would add nothing to the game if added in the ways mods do it. It would add nothing to the gameplay.
    • Emerald armours and tools are like a trademark of many mods, and degrade from creativity much like verticle slabs. If they were to add this without a unique look (NOT just green diamond armour) concept and niche and not add sharks or vertical slabs, it would simply be an abomination. 

    If it were added, it should be added that you can use the smithing table to add emeralds to iron tools to upgrade them or copper to iron tools to upgrade them. Emerald's buff could be a buff to enchantability or a buff to trading. 

    If tools were added, they would have to be niche, such as working as if they already had silk-touch, however, copper or bronze would fill this role better.

    Honestly, I can hardly see why this is even under review. If I could, I would downvote this. Twice.

    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.
