    This would be an awesome addition to the game!I agree with what @Cephalosquid said.  But as the new nether rite tools kind of took the better tools into the new update, I'm not sure if the hype will remain.

    It can be strong as iron because emeralds can be obtained in mass amounts via trading.

    I like the idea but it should be more durable and it should add a special effect to make it interesting like villager discounts when wearing armor or the tools give you taste and weapons give extra damage effects. it could also be an armor upgrade situation like netherite?

    No! No-no-no! Emeralds it's only a money!

    In all honesty, Emerald gear should be better in some ways than iron & diamond, but worse in others. Perhaps it's like low durability, but higher efficiency, like an upgraded sort of gold.

     

    In addition, villagers could trade emerald gear and potentially even use it if they ever were given a different variety of guard.

    This armour should be a unique trade from the wandering trader only. He needs some love

    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 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. Emerald tools should also be in between Iron and Diamond (about 700-1000 durability per tool). 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.

    Damage closer to diamond, durability a fraction higher than diamond and speed really fast

    A few years ago I would’ve said yes but emerald is in a I dense now so making armor for it wouldn’t be a smart choice

    Sorry, but for me, is a no. I mean, emerald was born from the ruby, that was changed into emerald to not be confused with redstone, and the ruby was intended to be used as a coin. At least, you should be able to use the emerald to upgrade diamond gear, like mount an emerald in the center of a sword, maybe in the smithing table, so you will have to chose from two paths: netherite (that will grant you better damage and durability) or by mount an Emerald (that will grant you… better attack speed and reach?)

    So, for me, no Emerald armor/weapon/tools. And I hate green ;)

    There was a smaller idea on the same topic,but with an idea to make 2 types of emerald.There would be regular emeralds that you could trade with villagers,but the second type would be pure emeralds,which would be the mined type.The pure emeralds could be crafted into armor and tools slightly higher than diamond,but not by much.

    The thing many people say that netherite is to be better than diamond and this is true but diamond armor is part of the crafting recipe for netherite so the netherite should be to augment all armor and emerald be better than diamonds and netherite be even better if you augment the emeralds and diamond that is augmented be equal to emerald and make it so villagers no longer trade for and with emeralds and trade with gold nuggets instead. that makes more sense anyway cause that is something that they would more likely have anyway

    Emeralda are currency, so I dont think emerald armor and tools are nessesary. But they could add a new material and make tools and armor out of that. But also... WHY DOES THE TRAVELLING MERCHANT HAVE A BIRCH SAPLING FOR 5 EMERALDS!?!?!?!

    I agree with the low stats but I feel as though emeralds are still too easily reproduced with villager trading halls and raid farms. Also by the time players have enough emeralds to make the gear they will proably already have diamonds.

    this should simpl never happen, emeralds are so rare, AND useless because they exist only to be traded with villagers

    Since emeralds are so rare they should be like netherite or have specific  uses. One such use could be that when you're wearing emerald armor you get 50% off every purchase in a village. Or another one could be that emerald weapons deal 25% more damage than other weapons when attacking illager mobs (pillagers,evokers, ect).

    I am seeing a lot of comments about how it should be closer to diamond, but you have to think about other ways that you could get emeralds, not just mining, but villagers, before I had iron tools, I was trading with villagers, and I would have had emerald armor before iron armor. I think that emeralds should be closer to iron in durability, not lower though, but tool speed as good as, or closer to, diamond.

    Agreed, but it will be cool if the durability was higher then diamond, and that all of he emerald tools and armor will be as good as iron armor.

    but still i like your idea

    My + Idea to Emerald Armors an Tools :

    When you will wear full armor or minimum chesplate and leggings :

     

    Villagers will give you between 3 and 5 more trade options and will give only one discount (discount : -25%

    seeing how that emeralds are like a currency, this is perfect, and can be used to flex how rich you are

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

    Emeralds, although rare in the environment, can be obtained quite easily in villages. Giving emerald a higher mining speed & durability slightly better than iron (drawing mainly off of what Cephalosquid said earlier) would help balance things out. However, I would also make sure that Emerald tools and armor would have higher chances to get good enchantments, similar to wooden and golden tools.
