    About EssentialsX
    EssentialsX is the essential plugin suite for Spigot servers, including over 130 commands and countless features for servers of any scale!

    EssentialsX is a continuation of the original Essentials 2 plugin for Bukkit servers, adding support for the latest Minecraft versions. EssentialsX also includes several performance enhancements and fixes on top of the original Essentials, as well as plenty of new useful features for servers.

    You can view major differences and learn how to set EssentialsX up over at the EssentialsX wiki.

    • EssentialsX is designed to use modern permissions plugins - we strongly recommend LuckPerms. You also need Vault for prefix/suffix support.
    • EssentialsX currently supports CraftBukkit, Spigot and Paper (recommended). Other server implementations may work, but we don't recommend them as they may cause compatibility issues.

    If you'd like to disable metrics collection via bStats, you can edit the plugins/bStats/config.yml file.

    Childish support. Would rather argue and use fake "deep voices" because they're little kids. Their bent ego's for copy-pasting a plugin is outragous.

    EssentialsX provides quite a few item-specific, mob-specific and world-specific options to control access. I love the AntiBuild features too. Thanks to the developers who continued this project.

    There are more and more updates that show that the development team (volunteer, in theory) behind the plugin wants to continue keeping it alive and in accordance with Minecraft updates, not to mention that they have not left aside previous versions such as 1.12, for example. My congratulations.

    The plugin obviusly its very good. But the support is rude and i got banned from Discord for nothing ?!
    (Server is on Offline mode because i'm still making the server and using 2+ accounts to test!)
    I dont give a f*** to what u guys think about piracy. U can't just giving ban to everyone without knows anything about the Offline mode...
    To everyone who wants this plugin, i recommend don't ask for support!
