    Eh, i prefer it to stack out diamond. Its hard to get, and its currently and UPGRADE for diamond, meaning you still need to have diamond stuff to get it.

    I say keep it equal to diamond but keep the floating in lava and knockback resist.

     

    Though it really should be a fire resist instead.

    In my opinion i like the idea of Diamond not being the "strongest" anymore. As it is now, Diamond is so easy to get, you can find enough to make at least a set of tools in the first 20 minutes. For me, Diamond is not so rare and OP anymore. And in the future may be some new bosses or mobs that represent a challenge you couldn't take with only Diamond.

    Yeah, I would miss diamond being the best. It's kind of trademark minecraft

    I disagree. I don't think netherite should be a strict upgrade to diamond, but I also see no reason to keep diamond as the one and only top tier because it's "been like that for 10 years". I also think it's kinda dumb to limit its usefulness to the nether. You're right that it shouldn't replace diamond or upgrade from it, but I see nothing wrong with it being a stronger alternative with some negative side effects (such as slowing you down veeeery slightly and/or making you heavier in water and while flying with elytra).

    I also think netherite gear should be incompatible with the "gentler" enchantments, namely silktouch, feather falling, and potentially (given an anvil rework and some more bonus durability) mending. 
    I'll make a feedback suggestion for netherite enchantments soon.

    Diamonds are easy to get. Netherite is very hard to get, so its fine. Most players will still be walking arround with diamond.

    Nah, it's good to have more progression in the game.

    I think i agree that netherite must be stronger than diamond because even if diamond and netherite ore might have the same rarity, you can use fortune pickaxe to increase amount you get, but netherite ore must be smelted and because of that, you will only get 1 scrap in a 1:1 ore to scrap ratio. And you need 4 scraps from such rare ore plus 4 gold ingots to make one single netherite ingot. It makes more sense to make netherite much better than diamond because of these.

    I definitely agree that Netherite should not replace diamond, I also don't think they should be significantly weaker or as weak (strong) as iron. They should definitely keep the lavaproofness and knockback resistance, and have more durability than diamond (maybe even more than they have now) but their strength/speed should be between diamond and iron.

    In addition, I think crafting netherite ingots should yield 4 since you use 4 gold ingots to craft, and netherite items should be crafted using the usual recipe shapes, not by combining the diamond tools with one ingot.

    I think we should make it looke better but with a red detailing so it looks better but another thing is if we could change the armor from be better then diamond to be and upgrade from iron then upgrade from diamond be upgrade from iron so it makes more sense we shouldnt just let diamond get dumped that fast especially since you usually go into the nether with full iron then diamond armor

    Thank you all for the comments. Since I am at the limit of characters on my post, I would like to point out some other things in this post. I’ll edit this comment with any extra responses...

    If this was added, I would suggest that a Netherite Ingot would be added to (an) Iron Tool/Weapon/Armor, as Netherite would be a 100% replacement for Iron. It would not be 100% better than Diamond/Gold.

    Ancient Ruins would definitely need to less rare. They should still come in small amounts (1-3), but would be found more often. The Crafting Recipe might help in this too. Perhaps if they keep Netherite relitavely rare, the crafting recipe should give you 4 Ingots. If it’s less rare, it’ll give you 2. If they make it relatively common, it’ll give you 1.

    I still can’t believe that they plan to replace Diamonds in Minecraft. It’ll be just another tier before you make your way to the top. People are saying, “Well you don’t HAVE to switch to Netherite”. How long until they make an enemy that Diamond can’t beat? They’re making mobs harder, they’re changing combat, soon not using Netherite will put you at a major disadvantage.

    Wow, Minecraft where players don’t use diamond much anymore, except as a temporary armor before they mine a few pieces of Netherite. 1 hour of mining and your Diamond is only used for forging into Netherite (which is very strangggeee). I Can’t believe mojang is actually doing this.

    Since it builds off diamond (and as another suggestion said, use an anvil to upgrade diamond items), it feels to me more like an extension of diamond. If the texture changed to include more diamond colors beneath the netherite, or naming them "Netherite Treated Diamond" (maybe?), this would be even more so the case. Diamond still being at the root of it, but improved with time and effort.

    You do realize that netherite armor and tools are modified diamond items right?

    I hate pretty much everything I've read about netherite. It's stupid.

    Why not make it slightly stronger than iron and with the addition of fire resistance or something?

    Making it stronger than diamond is really not needed.
