    Emerald Tools, Weapons, and Armor should be in the game, but if it's as weak as gold is, why would anybody want to craft them? Emeralds are already extremely rare, this would just be a waste of a rare resource. it would be more sensical to make Emerald gear have the same strength as iron or diamond.

    Emeralds are not that rare you can trade paper for emerald with villagers

    maybe if there were differences in armor from diamond compared to emerald like emerald gives you increased range damage for crossbows and bow and arrows and faster loading /pulling bowstring back meanwhile diamond armor gives more melee damage and speed

    as for weapons maybe don't make emerald weapons but an emerald bow or crossbow or sometime of new weapon maybe introducing magical weapons so we can have armor and weapons based on the class you want to play as ex: emerald for ranged class, diamond for melee, and some new ore like Saphire or ruby for mage 

     

    it would certainly open the door for adding new ores to not only have effects with stuff like tipped tools and weapons and maybe special stuff with armor ex: layering your diamond armor in tungsten ingots gives you increased attack speed while layering it in saphire gives you more damage etc. and then every new ore added open the door to a brand new calss.

    Emerald are too rare to be between wood/leather and gold strength/protection. If it was added it should be greater than or equal to iron/diamond strength/protection.

    Stronger durability then diamond but less damage and protection during use

  • Avatar

    I think it should be between iron and diamond because how rare emeralds are.

  • Avatar

    Instead of a new ore weapons, new type of weapons should be added. Weapons from different cultures will be nice eg.spear, Chinese hook sword, bo staff etc.There is only a limited amount of ores available in the game and in real life.

    Why emerald armor? They are already used as currency for villagers so that makes it rarer I guess.I do think that this is a great idea though.

  • Avatar

    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.

    I like the idea, emeralds are rarer than diamonds so, I think that it shy do half a heart more damage/a little more protection/a little more speed but have the durability of iron tools.

  • Avatar

    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!!

    If this is added it should do something very different to Diamond armour. It should not be just slightly stronger or weaker than diamond. That doesn't add anything to the game.

    Perhaps Emerald gear would grant a specific benefit that is related to trading with villagers. Maybe emerald gear is very strong against illagers, witches and vexes. Or maybe you can throw emerald armour at villagers and they can wear it like zombies can wear armour.

    I think the Armor should be a bit better than Iron but worse than Diamond, but more durability as Diamond Armor. And for the Weopons the same that they have all more durability as Diamond.

    I feel this would make them lose their uniqueness.

    Honestly I agree with this but, emeralds are actually quite easy to find within ttrading, so maybe instead Mojang could replace the villager currency with a money item, and then emerald armor will be balanced.

    Fun idea, but emeralds arent actually that rare, especially if you get raided, and I think no higher than diamond since that would just be too easy.

  • Avatar

    I think it would be better if:

     

    Its strength was higher than diamond.

    Its protection was higher than diamond.

    Its durability was higher than diamond.

     

    Only then would it be viable. Why the hell would you use rarer items for worse tools/armor?

  • Avatar

    It should be higher than diamond

  • Avatar

    Yes! I love this idea! Just one thing, because the emerald armor currently doesn’t have a super practical use. I was thinking that if you have a full emerald set, villagers would “respect” you. This would mean a few things:

    1| villagers would not get in your way (keep at least a 3 block distance from you) unless you are holding something that the villager wants to trade with. This would help if you are harvesting crops, so the villagers won’t steal them.

    2| villagers won’t get angry when you kick them out of bed.

    3| villagers will give you a slightly larger discount if you have hero of the village.

    I hope you like this suggestion!

    Given how rare emeralds are they should be at a bit better than diamond, and mining speed with that of gold

    emeralds should be a diamond I recon and also emeralds aren't that rare especially with the new raid farms and villager mechanics

    But emeralds are really rare granted that you only mine for them so I think tools it is in between iron and diamond and armour is between iron and diamond but when worn there should be a certain buff
