    Great plugin! The only problem I have with it is that I can't trade custom villagers with the %soulbind% tag -- it just keeps giving the item back to the villager.

    This plugin works wonders.
    The only issue is a comflict with other plugins that allow protected items.

    An example is zenchantments.
    If you have the keep inventory permission on, and you have both soulbound and binded items it deletes the binded items, not just drops them, but deletes all thositems entirely

    Im talking with the bind enchant guy, while also talking with you.

    I'll adjust your rating if either of you can help get around this

    Amazing plugin! Does what it should do. Reported an overlook to the developer and he added a new option within no time! It's so good for donator items etc.

    Version: 0.5.0 BETA
    Plugin does exactly what I wanted it to do, it binds it to a player and doesn't drop on death with the correct node.
    This is what I've been searching for, for weeks!

    NIceeee! This is a perfect idea! But pls!!!! Make compatible with 1.12.2!

    Version: 0.3.1 BETA
    Amazing plugin, can't wait to see some new features. One suggestion I would like to see is if there was an option to prevent adding extra enchants to soul bound items.
