    I disagree. Making Netherite overall better would simply render diamond obsolete. Giving it much more durability at the cost of slightly slower speed would to me be more balanced, giving the player a dilemma and a choice.

    Extra durability isn't a big benefit to upgrading tools that are already diamond... especially for a material that's so rare and difficult to obtain.

    It does mine faster than diamond.  It's just that when you stack the other enchantments and boosts on them, the base speed really doesn't make much of a difference, so you can't tell.  But it's something like 10-20% faster than diamond when unenchanted.

    Ilmango went over some great points on how netherite acts compared to other tools in his most recent video.  Currently they only mine 1 or 0 more gameticks compared to diamond tools in optimal situations, which isn't really worth it considering it takes 4 gold to make netherite tools, while a gold pickaxe has a mining speed of 12 and netherite 9.

    Agreed, so long as netherite tools with efficiency V and haste II can mine wood, cobblestone, and concrete instantly.
