    Evolutions introduces the mechanic of evolution to Minecraft! Evolving unlocks new skills and boosts for your player!

    There are 6 evolution environments by default:

    • Earth
    • Nether
    • End
    • Ocean
    • Cave
    • Sky
    Each of these environments have unique skills that you can unlock by “evolving” in those environments. You evolve by spending time in an environment. By spending time in an environment you gain energy in that environment. Each skill requires a certain amount of energy to unlock. Hover over the book icon in each of the environment menus to view all of the ways to gain energy.

    Skill List:
    Mob Assasin - Your fighting begins to improve as you battle more mobs. Damage against you is decreased by 15% while in the overworld.

    This Plugin: This one showed up suddenly in my searches and it was exactly what I was looking for with an adventure RPG feeling to the server. Everyone is really excited to grind out the evolutions and their abilities are really fun for people!

    The Author: Natecb13 is fantastic, and incredibly helpful. I had several issues, that were unique to my situation, and could not be replicated, but the author was very pleasant about it, and even offered me alternative solutions to my problems while also helping me debug the unique issues.

    Hands down 10/10 plugin and 10/10 customer service!
    Fingers crossed this stays updated for 1.18!!
