Interested in some easy emeralds? Just go straight. It’s (just about) that easy. Go straight when you spawn and you’ll come up on a two oversized villages at water’s edge. Go to each blacksmith and take a look in their chests. One has emeralds for you (plus some bread and ink sacs). While it’s not emeralds, there’s another good chest, too.
The second chest has more bread and ink sacs, gold, and some ironworks to make you a little less vulnerable – iron leggings and an iron sword. If you’re looking for clay, there’s a swamp adjacent to the villages (which are on a flat spot of a rolling plain). At one village’s end there is a waterfront pool. Beyond it you’ll find some impressive coastal extreme hills.
