  1. How to cancel the EntityDeathEvent?
  2. Listen to it, then cancel it :)
  3. Sorry I meant EntityDeathEvent
  4. Hello,

    You can not cancel that.
    You'll have to listen to the EntityDamageEvent, check if the entity is a player (if you want that for a player) and check if the EntityDamageEvent#getFinalDamage() is >= Player#getHealth().

  5. You can use something like this:
    Code (Java):
    public void onDie(EntityDamageEvent e) {
        if(!(e.getEntity() instanceof Player)) return;
        Player p = (Player)e.getEntity();
        if(p.getHealth() - e.getFinalDamage() <= 0.0D) {
            //Do your stuff

  7. There also is a PlayerDeathEvent :p
  8. Which doesn't help, as that isn't cancellable either of course.
  9. However, be careful if using this code as if other plugins interfere into damage on your server the result may be inaccurate depending on the priority of the event.

    Code (Java):
  12. No. If you want to respawn them immediately, just use PlayerDeathEvent. The question is about cancelling the death (truly), which means the stuff is:
    Code (Java):
