If that server is full (and it usually is), feel free to check out any of the other "official" servers.

Dev build

Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk. This link has been removed because Bukkit doesn't like Github as a CI server.

Minecraft: The Last Airbender is a Minecraft plugin for a Bukkit server. It is designed for Survival Multiplayer, and allows players to choose an element to bend as the benders do in the world of Avatar (the stage of Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel The Legend of Korra).

Some quick notes: I will warn you that you will not be able to do everything they do in the show. There are limitations both in Minecraft and in Bukkit that prevent such extravagance. In the details of each discipline you can see exactly what you can do. As such, the description of the bending disciplines is a little altered to reflect their role in the world of Minecraft: The Last Airbender.


  • Play as a bender and choose which type you would like to be.
  • Battle other users and see who is the best of the best.
  • Compatible with WorldGuard, Factions, PreciousStones, GriefPrevention, and CreeperHeal. (Many more plugins will be added to this list)
  • Nothing is required client-side
  • Permissions support!


Users may bend water, earth, fire, air, or can go with being a chiblocker.. You may pick which type of bender you would like to be with the command: /bending choose [water/air/earth/fire/chi]. You may only choose one, with the exception of the Avatar, and you may never change it so be careful in your decision.


  • Specializes in maneuverability in and on the water.
  • Oceans are perfect for water benders.
  • Techniques range from shooting water that do damage, freezing lakes, or even pushing enemies back with powerful waves.
  • This bending style is a mixture of offensive and defensive.
  • Water bending opens up many options in bodies of water that are otherwise closed to the other disciplines.


  • Specializes in manipulating the earth around them.
  • Any area which contains land is perfect for earth benders.
  • They have the abilities to pull columns straight up from the earth, drill their way through any mountain and launch themselves through the air.
  • This bending style, like water bending, is a mixture of offensive and defensive.
  • Earth benders do not take fall damage as long as they land on the ground.


  • Specializes on destruction and incineration.
  • Any environment, besides on any bodies of water, is perfect for them.
  • They may create rings of fire on the ground, shoot lines of fire, and even create exploding fireballs.
  • This bending style is pure offensive, and very little mobility/defense.
  • Fireball is the only ability they may use that does not require any solid ground beneath them.


  • Specializes in mobility & defense.
  • The land is the ideal place for airbenders, although they may also bend over the water.
  • Bending air allows you to use wind to blast things away, forming a shield of air around you, or using a tornado to lift you, or your opponent, off of their feet.
  • This bending style is perfect for pacifists and explorers for they lack any raw damage output, but make up for it with their utility and speed.
  • Choosing air as your element increases your overall speed, decreases the rate of hunger and disables fall damage.

Chi Blocking

  • Specializes in bare handed combat.
  • Move faster, jump higher, take less fall damage.
  • Can block someones chi, stopping them from Bending for a short period of time.
  • Abilities range from Higher Jumps, Faster Punches, and Paralysis of enemies.

HELP! It's not working!

This is a Bukkit plugin, not a single player mod. It will never be a single player mod. Go to the Bukkit Wiki to set up your own server. You can play on it just like you would single player, and it requires nothing more than setting it up.

If anything is not working, look around for a development build of Bending.

Development progress

School has picked back up, so plugin development will be very intermittent at best. I've done away with the ordered releases, and will most likely be keeping 1.0.7 the "official" version until I release it as 1.1.0. It's a jump, I know, but if I were forced to stick to a schedule, the plugin would never get done. This is because there are things I like coding and want to code now, and I shouldn't have to wait just because I have something else planned for the version.

As such, there is no ETA on the release. The dev build will of course be updated as I add features, but 1.1.0 will only be officially released when everything is completed, and that could take a very long time.

    Ye I get that but TagAPI is working but not with your plugin anymore, only with the plugins that are updated with the new TagAPI in it.

    Has the shockwave ability been removed from the earthbenders list? As well as the chi blocker's paralyse ability

    @codiaz: Go

    TagAPI is a separate plugin, not mine.

    And in the bug post, I'd keep everything that's not an issue. But I might put the answers right under each question instead. Like:

    1. Firebending doesn't work. blah blah blah. Answer: It's worldguard's fault blah blah blah
    2. and so on

    @TroublesomeTrio: Go

    If only there were an FAQ that directly answered this.

    Anyone know a plugin that can prevent people grieving by bending?

    @orion304: Go

    • Oke thanks and no problem I like to help as good as I can, but about part 4 on the new bugs, it happens in your official server as well, I think anyone can show you how, so what you wanna do to see this really good you take a bucket of water you place it down on the ground just make it so everything is flat around it and than you gonna move on your waterspout over the water you will see it will creates very often a new watersource so you made from 1, 2 and in many occasions after have 3 it will flood cause of the new minecraft "rules" everything.
    • Oh and about the TagAPI, will this be updated as well in the new release?
    • That were my Super important questions :3
    • Oh actually 1 more, do I need to keep telling people all the bugs in my post that I keep refreshing or shall I get rid of 1-13 of the old ones?
  • Avatar of orion304 orion304 Jul 17, 2013 at 01:22 UTC - 0 likes

    Bending works just fine on any plugin version above 1.5 (this includes up to 1.6.2). If it doesn't download the dev build which is mentioned on this page. When I get more time, I will release 1.1.0 to the "public" (as not a dev build) and work on 1.1.1, but this will mean 1.1.0 will not be the finalized version. There's still a lot of work to be done.

    This is not the place to inquire about permissions. The permissions nodes are listed plain as day, and if you don't know how to use them then as the creator of your permissions plugin - it is not my responsibility nor anyone else's here to show you how to use a different plugin.

    Please, for the love of all that is holy, read the FAQ and Known Issues page before posting. Questions about bugs, why I chose do attach Bending to the build flag, and many many more are already answered there.

    I will also see about trying to use BukkitDev's ticket system to compile a better list of known issues.

    This is also not the place to inquire about the testing server or my other plugin (unreleased) Incantatio. For that you will simply have to wait, I have too many other things on my plate to entertain questions about those.

    @scratchcrackers: Go

    A while ago someone else was inquiring a bunch about the flying support that Bending doesn't offer. While hooking into other plugins which grant flight would be easier in the short run, I definitely don't want to do this and would rather just remake how flying is handled by bending to allow for better multi-plugin support.

    As you probably have seen, the anti-flying code is actually a pretty integral part of how much of the mobility of Bending works, and reworking it isn't going to be an easy thing to do. But I plan to do it.

    @codiaz: Go

    Thank you for handling so many of the replies during my absence. While I cannot say if I'm around for a good while now, I can answer a few questions. If I've missed any super important points, let me know and I'll try to get back to those.

    Things in your bug list that AREN'T BUGS

    Skipping 1-13 since I have already replied to those. Some have been fixed in the dev build which hasn't been released yet because of new, worse bugs it has.

    New bugs: 3. This is changed in a recent (unreleased) dev build, and now you have to be in a certain range to block chi. The actual cause of this bug is very very hard to fix, since bending does damage as if you "punched" someone (this is why NoCheat hates it) 4. I don't know what you mean by this. 6. Every single ability has a 250ms cooldown, so the lag isn't from this cause. It has a cooldown, just not a large one like the other abilities.

    Thanks again!

    @scratchcrackers: Go

    Orion probably has a good reason and tried all he knows, and I am sure he already tried that, and I think it already does do that. Well you need to wait for orion304 he will tell you exactly why it is not working. Like he made fly already enabled forever for every bender that needs it but made it so they cannot go higher than a certain point or faster than a certain point, that is why /fly is not enabled since the only 2 fly "enablers" are gm 1 and fly, he had to use fly so the only one left is gm 1 so like he said it is not an easy fix, maybe not even possible.

    @codiaz: Go

    Actually what my server found out was that flying wouldn't work on any world, even if they didn't have the bending permissions for that world. However, I wonder if orion could hook into essentials, and compile a list of whoever is flying and exempt them from the fly check just like he does with creative mode. If he reads this, I think it might work. -Scratchcrackers

    @scratchcrackers: Go

    What you talking about, it is cause certain bendings need to fly: airspout, waterspout... And I think you are just talking about -bending.* to a certain world?

    • Anyways nice plugin you made and good luck on it.
