Harry Potter Spells


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.

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.

Some developers who have helped (In order of first pull request, most recent to earliest):
jacklin213, Ampayne2, MrBluebear3, zachooo, evilmidget83, korikisulda, RingOfStorms

Thanks to drtshock for hosting the Jenkins.

    I was wondering if and how I could possibly make all regular users spawn with limited spells, so they don't need to learn them?

    HI, so i have a question. I have a server that runs this. My players really want spells but they want a challenge to get them. Please tell me how you craft spells. Or please add them (like when you right click the book you crafted you get the spell) Thanks!
