How are emerald ones as cheap as wooden ones?! Villager trading isn't an option if you don't have a village
villages aren't THAT hard to find, and didn't generate emeralds as common as diamonds, but only in extreme hills?
Over just making wooden pipes, that's more effort.
But emerald pipes are a lot faster and(if i recall correctly) have an extraction whitelist/an item filter
true, but not THAT much, and emerald pipes have an item filter if i am right, too. and they are just faster than wooden pipes.
