    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.

    Ya emeralds are one of the rarest Minecraft ores so there should be armor and tools for it

    Rather than having thier own armor; I feel that emeralds, gold, even redstone, lapis, diamonds etc should be able to be "etched" onto armor providing a unique buff.

    Armors made with more pliable materials (leather, iron, gold) should be able to accept more buffs or a higher tiered effect.  So a golden armor could be etched with all the above or have a higher effect of one.

    for example: Emeralds etched into armor could provide the "looting" effect. (maybe for farming? or possibly better trades in general?)

    This would be separate / stack with enchantments.   The trade off being lower tiered armors provide less base protection but by adding some etching it can be useful still.  IE farming,

    I also think more armour and tools would be good for minecraft. But not emerald tools and armour, emeralds are meant to be a currency and it would be totally unbalanced if you could make armour and tools with it since there are so many ways to exploit villagers.

    Emeralds act as the currency of villagers, so this would be like making clothes out of bank notes. I think emeralds are best left how they are.

    I would disagree. I think emeralds don't need armor and weapons, but perhaps other uses. Similar to how amethyst will be used in the 1.17 update. Something like some sort of redstone thing maybe.

    I agree that it shouldn't be very good because you can get infinite emeralds from villagers. That would be too good otherwise.

    Absoutletly not, the emeralds are an in game currency, thats what makes it special. it would be less uniqe, the fact that this is even on the under review page baffles me. redstone is electricity, iron is midgame matieral, nethirite dosent burn in lava, emerald is villager currency, diamond is used to upgrade to netherite, copper oxcodizes and is a decrative block with some other practical uses.

    I'd say combine gold tools and armour with emerald blocks at the tool station to produce "Gemerald" tools and armour.
    Its as fast as gold but as durable as iron.

    Piglins would also treat you as if you're wearing gold.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Players cann't to hide this easy, and emerald armor won't be use. But curious players(me) want to have this armor! It is will be cool.(sorry, if i have mistakes in this text)

    I think adding furniture would make Minecraft more cool. It should be made out of iron and some glass

    Emeralds are the rarest thing though!, better than diamond items with protection 4!

    Okay so basically you want armor made out of money? And come to think of it, Gold is pretty trash for armor protection. Why not between chainmail and iron instead?

    I honeslty think it should be nearly as strong as diamond since it’s more rare than diamonds

    Please add emerald tools to Minecraft this would be awesome and unique because there is nothing stronger then diamond and no wepons tools or armor that’s green and emeralds don’t have many uses your plan was to add ruby tools at one time but you added emeralds so why no emerald tools?

    Yea but they are harder to find so they should be better than diamond armor instead
