Item Lore Stats


Thanks to BrightDanny for the logo.

Add functioning stats to your items to allow players to increase their player stats. Any gear/weapons that contain the correct lore that the plugin can detect (list below) will affect the wearer/wielder. ItemLoreStats helps you create an epic RPG experience. Will add more stats/options based on requests.

This has only been tested on v1.6.4, v1.7.2, v1.7.9 and v1.8.1 (May work on other versions but those are untested).


This is the Item Lore Stats plugin you can add to your server to get players farming/trading/looting gear to get the perfect stats for their character. It is currently v5.49 and was designed for Minecraft V1.6.4, V1.7.2, V1.7.9 and V1.8.1. Item Lore Stats offers random and unique loot tables for all of the default mobs and custom mobs. WorldGuard 6+ is required for WorldGuard support.

I will continue to support this and add many more features. If you have any suggestions please let me know through a ticket.

Installation and configuration

Place the ItemLoreStats.jar into your plugins directory. Then all you need to do is run your server.


  • /ils - Will show a list of available commands.
  • /ils version - Will show the version of Item Lore Stats that's running.
  • /ils stats - Will display the total stats of of your armour and item in your hand.
  • /ils createlore - Creates a set of gear with lore to test the plugin.
  • /ils reload - Reloads the config.yml.
  • /ils repair - Repairs the item in hand (Requires op or ils.admin).
  • /ils sell - This will sell the item in your hand for the price listed in the tooltip of the item.
  • /ils name <text> - Sets the name of the item currently in your hand. Supports all text formatting.
  • /ils setMultiplier - All of the mobs health and damage will be scaled by their distance from the location that you type this command. The health is calculated using (distance(when spawned) x multiplier) + base health = new health. The damage is calculated using (distance x multiplier) = new damage.
  • /ils lore <player_name> <line#> <text> - Adds or sets the lore line to the item currently in the players hand. If you don't include a <player_name> it will apply it to your own item in your hand. <player_name> must be online.
  • /ils give <player_name> <item_name> - This will generate an item from the specified file name (plugins/ItemLoreStats/SavedItems/<item_name>) and give it to the specified player (more info on the config here). The item can be given to a player with a different name with /ils give <player_name> <item_name>, <new_item_name>.
  • /ils export <item_name> - This will export the item in hand to a file (plugins/ItemLoreStats/SavedItems/<item_name>) with the specified name so that it can be imported at a later date (more info on the config here).
  • /ils upgrade hand - This will upgrade the item you're currently holding. Item requires Level Lore to upgrade.
  • /ils upgrade armour - This will upgrade the armour you're currently wearing. Items require Level Lore to upgrade.
  • /ils upgrade all - This will upgrade the item you're holding and armour you're currently wearing. Items require Level Lore to upgrade.
  • /ils combatlog - This will enable/disable the ILS combat log that is displayed in chat (You hit a Zombie for X damage.).

Negate these to restrict ops.

  • ils.admin
    description: Required for the /ils createlore, /ils name, /ils setMultiplier and /ils lore commands.
    default: op

  • ils.use.<Class_Name>
    description: This allows gear to be restricted to specific classes or groups that have the required permission. If an item contains the lore Class: Mage then that player would need the ils.use.Mage permission.
    default: op

These are some plugins I recommend using with Item Lore Stats;

  • BarAPI
    This will allow the players health to be displayed visually as the boss bar like shown in the video here.

  • AttributeHider
    This will remove the "+X attack damage" from swords.

Have a suggestion or need to report a bug?

Please use the ticket system if you have a suggestion or need to report a bug. This helps me find the problems/suggestions much easier and will also contain the required information I would need rather than looking through the comments.

As of v1.759 this plugin sends statistics about the usage to the server You can disable it by setting "opt-out" to true in \plugins\PluginMetrics\config.yml.


Auto-checking for updates

As of v2.18 this plugin will check for updates using Curse's ServerMods API. It always checks the current version with the version on BukkitDev and will notify ops or any players/groups with the ils.admin permission that there is an update available. It will never automatically download an update without the user typing /ils update. All of the updates are downloaded from BukkitDev. These checks can be disabled in the config.yml by setting checkForUpdates to false.


As people have requested a donation button to help support the development of Item Lore Stats I've decided to add one. Thanks to the current and future donations I really appreciate it.

    I found out that it was being caused by leveling up, so no bug. Although I do want to disable leveling up. Where could I do that in the configs for I can't find it.

    @Darkmagic70: Go

    I'll look into some of it.

    @OficialSaciDePatinete: Go

    I don't use SkillAPI and I've never used it but I usually change some of the code each update and wait for any reports of bugs.

    @Varinix: Go

    Just set health to 0 under upgradeStatsOnLevelChange.

    @krapcher: Go @ThunderBolt_6: Go

    Will fix this for the next release.

    @UglyScaryBadMan: Go

    Any errors in console?

    @nsound2006: Go

    Could you explain what's happening?

    I don't know if this is a bug you're currently trying to fix, but when I use ILS and start my server, mobs only did about 1 heart of damage or none at all every time it take a hit. I've cleared my inventory and reinstalled the plugin, though nothing worked. When I took out the plugin, mobs did normal damage, so I'm leaning towards that it's probably the plugin itself.

    Supivax there is health bug at your last update that causes player to make 1 damage with any weapon to any entity if he is at gamemode 1.

    Can you add a config option to disable the extra health when you level up?

    Supavitax, I use ItemLoreStats with SkillAPI, but several errors occurs as CoulNotPass PlayerLevelUpEvent, and generate errors in the amount of life SkillAPI Classes, I need your help to fully integrate the ItemLoreStats with SkillAPI.
