Harry Potter Spells

  • [v1.1.5] Will only work with Java 8, please upgrade if you do not have Java 8
  • [v1.1.4] Has full 1.9 support, if any issues arrise please send in a ticket
  • [v1.1.4] Server owners are recommended to rename their current config.yml and let HPS generate a new one before migrating the contents of their current config.yml to their new one


HarryPotterSpells is the ultimate Harry Potter plugin. Whether you run a Harry Potter server, want to add magic to an RP server, or just an admin looking for a bit of fun, this plugin is for you!

Many of these options are configurable. If you don't want parts of the plugin, open the config.yml with your favorite text editor and disable anything you don't want.


  • Provides a complete Harry Potter experience
  • Can be used on a HarryPotter server, an RPG server, or just to play around
  • Has over forty spells, with more in progress
  • Cast spells quickly with your magical wand (default: stick)
  • Teach users spells with simple commands


Cast spells with your magic wand (by default, a stick). Right-click to scroll through your available spells, and left-click to cast! Server operators can "teach" and "unteach" other players (and themselves) spells.

For spell documentation, see the Spells page on our site.

Commands and Permissions

For information regarding commands and permissions, see the Commands page on the site.


If your not sure how to setup your config or if your looking for a more detailed version of your config, see the Config page on the site.

Regarding Locale

Currently there are only two language options. We are looking for more translates and looking to branch HPS into more different languages Please message jacklin213 if you are interested

Supported Languages:

  • us-english
  • nl-dutch

Locale based Errors

As of 1.1.4 HPS will attempt to do the following steps automatically, in the case that it is not able to please follow the steps bellow Important: For anybody using a linux operating system please do the following steps to install HPS if you get locale based errors:

  1. Stop your server
  2. Download hps.rar
  3. Extract the locale folder directly into your HarryPotterSpells folder
  4. Start your server

The locale based errors should go away and the plugin should function like normal. If the problem still persists please read the support section bellow

To Do

Our entire to-do list has been moved to Trello. Anyone can vote on issues/features they'd like to see implemented. If you'd like to add an item, hop on our IRC channel (see the support section) and someone will access will add it for you.

Future Plans

We plan to add an extension system to HarryPotterSpells, allowing server owners to add various HarryPotter- and magic-themed "addons" to the HarryPotterSpells core plugin. However, to prepare for this, we have removed all code not related to casting spells. This includes some of our old features: Spell signs, SortingHat, and hooking into WorldGuard, Towny, and LogBlock. These will be available as extensions in the near future.

Special Thanks and Credits

This plugin would not be what it is today without some of these people. I (NP98765) originally asked Kezz101 to help me create this, but soon it grew into a group project. Many have spent time and effort helping to develop this. Thanks to jacklin213 for taking this project on board and keeping it updated since 1.7.x

    @CaptainStarJWS: Go

    You can do /spelllist to see a list of spells. You need to teach yourself spells before you can use them.

    /teach [spell] or /teach [spell] [player]

    Thats weird, I did have that issue once. But then I wasn't able to replicate it again. Are you able to take the wand out of the crafting inventory while its still there?

  • Avatar of LordGongorg LordGongorg Apr 24, 2016 at 12:25 UTC - 0 likes

    Hi. First of all, thank you for your nice work! I'm running your plugin on Spigot 1.9.2. I don't know if this is a common issue or it happens only to me, but wands appear out of nowhere when the crafting board is empty. Every time I open the inventory, there is a new wand by default. It dissapears the moment I put anything in the crafting board. Reading through the configuration I even found that wands should be crafted, but for now I just get wands for free, which kind of takes out the challenge out of getting one. Thank you again, IGnacio.

    Hi, I love this plugin but I think it's inactive, so, for all the Harry Potter fans, I created one myself on Spigot, it's actually pretty stable and I'm currently working on it, hope to get some feedback!! https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/hpwizard.8836/

    Can I get an updated list of the spells and what they do? Thanks!

    Btw the backfiring thing, is there a way that you could make it that as you use the spell more the chance of backfiring disappears?
