Netherite Armor/Tools should not REPLACE Diamond as the end-game material. These are the speicifications I propose for Netherite...
Damage would be Equivalent to Iron. Durability Greater than Diamond. “Overworld” blocks such as Stone, Ores, etc. will mine at the same speed as an Iron Tool of that Type. While blocks from the Nether, Netherrack, Quartz Ore, etc. would mine as fast as Gold. Items are not destroyed by lava.
Protection would be equivalent to Iron at 15. It Would have equivalent toughness to Diamond. Durability Greater than Diamond. Of course the armor is not destroyed by lava and each piece grants some knockback resistance. I would also propose making the armor grant invincibility to Fire Damage, but not lava damage. So if you accidentally walk into Fire, you are protected, but if you walk into lava, you’re not. Also, Netherite armor should offer 6 seconds of fire resistance. Similar to the Turtle Shell.
Netherite should be what most people would choose when in the Nether with benefits in the overworld as well. Diamond should still be the best option for the Overworld. Diamond Armor has been the top tier in Minecraft for 10 years. "Netherite" being the best material in MINECRAFT feels wrong.
