    Emerald should be stronger than diamond, I feel like. Although you can trade for it, it’s still rare! Also, you use emeralds for trading, too, so it should be more valuable.

    I got new edit idea:

    Emerald armor and weapons should be upgraded in Smithing table from Iron armor and weapons.

    I don´t like this idea, emeralds should just be the coin of the game

    I'm not certain if it would be the best idea, but if it is added I agree that it would be interesting if it affected Villager trading. When going to a market your clothing can often affect how the venders will react to you. Wearing emerald armor could decrease or increase the price of things, although I would only do the latter if it is a higher-tier set of armor.

    I feel like emerald armor and weapons should be only a tiny bit better than nether it’s because it will be new if you actually listen to my comment.

    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.

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

    It could have some enchantment on the armor that gives you luck or better deals with villagers

    I would suggest that before there are new armours added to the game there should be a reason to use gold, leather and chain armour.

    So basically only existing for consistency sake? (Which I am almost sure is the only reason gold was craftable into armor) I'm far from agenst that idea, but the armor should have some use, maybe villagers would give you better traids if your wearing a full set?

    I feel like this could be a good idea but I have some changes. First of all, I’ve noticed some people have said that emeralds are the rarest but they are actually easy to get if you trade for them. Second of all, I don’t want another armor set that’s the same. It should have some unique trait that only goes to it. Maybe instead of there being an emerald sword there is a dagger, which would have less range but if you held the button you could charge a small dash attack that would push you forward a block or two, and damage all enemies in the way. The armor could also have a very faint glow, and the more emerald armor pieces you have on, the brighter it is. This would also make up for holdable torches that people want

    Emerald is rare so it has to sit between iron and diamond. It should perform as gold, but be twice as durable as iron. It should not be as enchantable as gold to not make gold even more useless.

    This would be interesting, but note that, despite being a 7.5-8 on the hardness scale, it isn’t very resistant to breakage because of inclusion, while no one has to worry about it in Minecraft, that is still one of many reasons Emerald armor won’t be added, sadly. That and I doubt Mojang wants to add more armor unless it will improve the game for the better, messes with progression

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This would be cool to think about, but considering how fragile they are in real life and how rare they are in the game, putting time into making the armor probably wouldn't be worth it. Like gold, which is semirare and super weak.

    We should put emerald weapons between diamond swords and tridents

    I think it should have durability of iron and protection of diamond. Nothing OP, but strong enough to be worthwhile.

    Yes!!! BUT trading with villagers should change emerald from like anything coins, maybe

    The emerald weapons and tools must have different sprites or it will look really plain

    I’ve been playing Minecraft  for a wile now and I would love to see the emeralds be more than just a trade and more of a good way to make weapons it should be  stronger than diamond and  give more protection because of how hard it is to find .     Already I’ve only found up to 2 emeralds per game in survival mode  so that’s  a reason to add it.       What would be really cool is a gun that should be put in the game

    Weapons and armor

    One thousand times yes. I'm really tired of only a few types of items. When playing terraria you find SO many options that it is underwhelming coming back to minecraft just to see a few. I enjoy the green color of the emerald and tried it once with a mod. They look great as weaps and armor.

    Also, once you get fortune, diamonds tends to be more common. So it gets boring really fast.

    Since emeralds are super rare, the should be better than diamond and villagers should charge more for them. also it would be nice for some other uses for emeralds.

    With the addition of Netherite, I think having it as a rival to Diamond is not an option. I think Emerald armor and tools should be a higher tier than Iron, but not close enough to Diamond. Currently, there is a minor gap between Iron and Diamond. Emerald armor should have more protection than Iron, more durability (between Iron and Diamond), but less enchantability. They should in no way outclass Diamond for that is Netherite's job and should instead be the upgrade after Iron armor. To make it seem unique, it should have a special property like lower trade deals or maybe let the player recieve buffs when in a raid or something similar. It's a work in progress that I'm sure someone will come up with a better idea. This is after all a suggestion so anything can change.

    I think emrald armour should be in between iron and diamond with a pattern of the emrald block with a attachable totem of undying on the chestplate.
