    The first Minecraft Role-playing plugin created for the multiplayer server Herocraft! Heroes is a dynamic, flexible and highly configurable class, skill and experience system. Heroes itself is the hub of your players RPG experience, boasting classes, multi-tiering, and advanced skills. Along with classes, Heroes offers your players a new style of PvP & PvE through our well-developed skill system and our weapon + armor restrictions. No longer will your mages have the ability to use diamond swords, your rogues will no longer sneak around in their heavy diamond tunics and most importantly, you can now hurl fireballs and stun your targets. The best part of this? It's your choice how your Heroes is set up, don't want a certain skill, that's fine, you can just remove the skill and be done with it!

    What can I do with it?
    With Heroes, you can do almost anything you'd want to do on an RPG server. The main feature is our customizable tiered class system, which offers as much to the server owner as possible when tied with our skills and permission skills. Your Heroes could be totally unique to your server, it could be the reason players play your server over other servers. The same can be said about our skill system, it's unique to any of the other RPG plugins out there. Other plugins dub "Skills" as methods which you level up, this isn't the case with Heroes. Skills are abilities you can perform which are unique to your class. Some of our favorite skills are Fireball, Jump and Port. These are what makes Heroes unique.

    Experience is how Heroes gain levels. Currently there are eleven different sources of gaining experience:
    Skill experience is set per-skill in the skills configurations, and is usually not enabled, but can be enabled if you want specific skills to award or cost the player experience. PvP rewards are set under Killing as shown in the default configuration below.
    Enchanting is required for a player to enchant items, as it will be used to deduct the exp cost from the heroes.
    Questing & External require extra addons to be functional, they are not used internal to the Heroes plugin.

    The experiences.yml file controls which experience types award experience and how much they award. Killing goes by entity names, while the other options go by block and item names

    FAQs / Untested / May have Issues

    Does Heroes work with Citizens?
    A: Sorta.- Citizens - (NPCs loaded as playerObjects cause some conflicts - contact Citizen for possible fixes) Full support would require a major rewrite of Heroes Framework on how we load/save classes. Avoid using Citizens named as players on your server.

    Can I use /reload or reload plugins with Heroes Premium?
    A: "/reload" will cause instability with the class manager. Do not use /reload. Spigot recommends not using it ever.

    Q: What permission systems do you use or recommend?
    A: We recommend using LuckPerms or zPerms. GM & PEX permission systems are untested/unsupported, YMMV.

    Q: Can I use other RPG systems (like Mcmmo) with Heroes?
    A: Most plugins will load and not cause errors, there may be some philosophical overlap due to both being "RPG" plugins.

    Q: Does 1.7 and 1.8 versions work on Heroes Premium
    A: 1.7 and 1.8 may have some issues. The more advanced skills may not function properly unless compiled against these versions. 1.8.8 is the only supported 1.8 build.

    Q: Is Bukkit Supported?
    A: Craftbukkit is NOT supported. You should use Spigot or PaperSpigot.

    Q: Is there a language file with Heroes? Can you translate it
    A: We do NOT have a full language file, there are sections you can customize and change descriptions however. Please use MessageFilter for the time being.

    Q: Can I localize the skill descriptions?
    A: Yes. You can do this in skills.yml by editing the Description section.

    Q: Can I turn off stamina and use the food system?
    A: Yes. You can do this in config.yml by editing the appropriate section.

    The plugin is amazing, nice everything and works in 1.14
    I am very happy.

    I have a question, is it posible to move classes like this:
    Lvl 1 starter
    Lvl 10 warrior
    Lvl 30 beserker
    Lvl 70 commander.

    Not change with masteries, but able to switch at a specified level.

    Thanks already.

    "Your plugin breaks the performance of the plugin Quality Armory! There are no errors. The weapon does not shoot, but is removed to another slot or thrown out of the inventory. Is there a problem? How to solve it?

    Author's Response
    Since we didn't know that plugin existed, I would have no idea. Heroes legacy is 8 years old and has an API, if they wanted they could use it."

    Is there any way to fix this with programming skills?

    Really? Who's Going To Buy A Simple Plugin For 19.99$?! That Is By Far The Stupidest Thing I've Seen Spigot / Bukkit, I'm Just Saying That This Plugin Is STUPID Just Go Think About It. I'm Right.

      Author's Response
      This isn't a simple plugin, you arent even rating this plugin you are rating its new project "Heroes Premium". If you want to use Heroes, you can do so on anything pre1.9 for free.

    Version: 1.5.57 (Repacked)
    An Absolutely beautiful plugin. So muh complexity and work put into it with a great development team! Get this plugin for all your RPG needs!
    I am having one issue though if someone could help me. Passive skills seem to keep refreshing over and over saying "Username learned BackStab".

    Version: 1.5.57 (Repacked)

    1. Kainzo
      Author's Response
      Cannot reproduce the bug, please read and dont put bugs here. Use our bug tracker. Rating a plugin lower because its not updated to 1.9 isnt cool ;)
