    Why you should use it

    EssentialsX provides several performance enhancements and fixes that are currently not available in Essentials and Spigot-Essentials, most importantly fixed mob spawner support for 1.8+ servers. See the wiki for details.

    EssentialsX is almost a completely drop-in replacement for Essentials. However, it has different requirements:

    • EssentialsX requires Vault to enable chat prefix/suffixes and group support if you have a supported permissions plugin.

    • If you have an unsupported permissions plugin but still wish to use wildcards, enable use-bukkit-permissions in the configuration. Otherwise, the plugin will fall back to config-based permissions.

    • EssentialsX requires Java 8 or above.
    Metrics collection

    This plugin uses bStats - you can opt out using the global bStats config.

    People really take this plugin for granted; over 47,000 downloads in this version yet just 5 reviews. drtshock has done a great job at maintaining EssentialsX. It's still working spectacularly, so I'd like to say thank you. Please never stop upkeeping EssentialsX.
