    The whole point of Emeralds are to be used as currency, not to be used as an independent (and redundant) resource.

    I'm not a fan of emerald armors/weapons, with netherite coming up it will be less useful and equipment wise, there will be too much options, I think we should stay in the simplicity. Plus, I think gold armors/weapons will be more used (not useful) with gold implemented in the nether.

    No support. Emeralds should stay only money equivalent. 

    Also, no need for new weapon material.  

    It is better to have more weapon types, but not weapon materials.

    I think it would be cool if it is in the middle of diamond and netherite

    If this would to be a thing, it would have to have a special value because it is so rare. Maybe it could be used to get better trades with villagers when you are wearing a full set and Illagers would do less damage to you?

    Then you could also have an amulet that has special enchants that apply potion effects permanently and same with shields as far as including emeralds in the crafting recipe in the previous comment each equipment improved a different way like speed, resistance, health boost and regeneration.

    with the new netherite armor you would be able to do the same thing with that as well. 

    I think the appearance should also include the emerald so that it looks really cool.

    Gold nuggets should be the currency for the villagers because that makes way more sense for these non mining villagers to come across, gold is something more common in the world of minecraft and the villagers would not have emeralds as plentiful as they do because of its rarity.

    Also, why have something so rare for it to be so easy to get. This makes no sense and it needs to change because it is just a missed opportunity to have something awesome in minecraft beyond what it is now. If this changes than you could have so much more in minecraft that will change survival minecraft and pvp for ever.

    You can literally find a village within 30 seconds of starting a new world, break some hay bales, trade with villagers, and have 20 emeralds in 5 minutes. If there were emerald tools/armour, there would be no point mining anymore and half the games content would be redundant. Emeralds are not rare at all, and they are meant to be a currency for trading.

    Having emerald tools/armour makes no sense. Making them as strong as iron or even diamond would completely ruin Minecraft forever.

    You can literally get an emeralds by trading 5 melons or 4 wood... Emeralds are a currency and EASY to obtain from trading.
    If emerald tools and amrour were added to the game (which they certainly won't be) they should be as weak as stone and as durable as wood because they are so easy to get. Making them more powerful than iron would ruin the game, obviously.

    Definitely a cool idea, but I'm not sure how the armour's strength would apply as it is somewhat easyish to get from villager trading, sometimes. But it's also super hard to find when mining, harder than finding diamonds.

    If ever implemented, and if ever stronger than diamond, it'd be an amazing addition to the smithing table!
    ...craftable Emerald ingots maybe?

    I definitely agree and think that it would be really cool to have emerald gear and tools. They should also be better than diamond because emerald is rarer than diamond. Also there's nothing that you can do with emeralds even though they are so rare.

    We really need this, because the windows 10 edition version doesn't have a new ore like java edition, we are not able to experience Minecraft the way they are. So we kind of want some new weapons and armor like them, it not this fair.

    I like that idea but if wood tools are better then what is the point of having emerald tools. Maybe if you have a full set of aurmer villager trades are cheaper.

    What if there was a difference in what emeralds could be mined and traded? If the emeralds that we’re mined were different from the ones that we traded with, then maybe emerald armor could be considered. I think this was the original idea with rubies

    It should be the same as iron as you can make farm's for both making them equally common

    They should be with the protection of diamond but the durability of iron

    It should have the protection, durability, and damage of diamond. But it also makes villagers do better trades and is very fast working.

    I think that emerald armor would be cool and of course I would love a green toolset, but I think just adding another mid to high-tier armor set to the game wouldn’t be a good idea. However, with the new functionality of gold armor being added to the game in 1.16 we are seeing an armor set that was mostly unused given functionality, which is something I think could totally be translated to a new emerald armor set. Here’s what I’m thinking. Maybe emerald armor could get you better trades with villagers. And maybe emerald tools would give you more experience when using them, so if you wanted experience it would be good to use the emerald tools. I feel like this would make it more interesting. I’m voting on this idea either way because I really really want it in the game but this might give some ideas to the developers :)

    This feature is in many mods and I'm pretty sure original Minecraft! I'd like it if they weren't to OP

    That would be very useless as iron is far more common than emeralds, and iron tools/weapons/armor would be stronger.

    I dont think that we need another type of armor/tool set. Also, emeralds are the minecraft currency . That would be like making a chestplate out of a dollar bill(or any paper currency). But thanks for the idea!

    No, We already have 6 tiers, no need for a 7th.

    Other types of weapons and armor would also be legal as more varieties of shield such as emerald, iron, gold and diamond shields
    It could increase the durability of the shield for each type of material used

    What if villagers gave you a discount on trades when you wear a piece of emerald armor? Would that be neat?

    Emeralds are currency. This would be like making armor out of money.
