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.

    Sorry I was on holidays :/

    @Epic_Incarnate: Go

    Yes it does, some bugs but only small ones. Main gameplay is still the same.

    @justinwl: Go

    Lets say for torrent if they have - -bending.water.torrent , than they can never use it, EVEN if they have it bound! You probably doing it wrong.

    @Stromgrade: Go

    So you want both? If you are not using a chat plugin and disable the bending prefixes, there is no way you can do this.

    PLEASE anyone!

  • Avatar of Stromgrade Stromgrade Mar 12, 2014 at 04:53 UTC - 0 likes

    Was wondering if someone could help me? I'm kind of a complete noob when it comes to technicalities with plugins. Anyways, I just wanted to know when the [Avatar] prefix is granted to someone and how I can remove it, yet make the person still has his bending prefix if he has one. Please help me. ;

    Does this plugin still work in newer versions of minecraft? The file says 1.6.2 but does it work in 1.7?

    @goga_m: Go

    Normally it is standard for normal people but you probably set up superperms and denied them to all commands, try adding bending.command.choose to their group, if it doesn't work try reinstall the perms plugin and delete the config, you probably set up something wrong.

    @Gotsomeideas: Go

    You can configure the strength of tornado in the config this will make it a bit more realistic.

  • Avatar of Gotsomeideas Gotsomeideas Mar 07, 2014 at 23:20 UTC - 0 likes

    Is it possible for you to make the airblast and airburst cause damage if the target hits a wall or
    block at high speeds? Ps: by the way the tornado do have an issue not being able to throw players into the air, not sure if it's the server's fault though

    Wheen "New" people join my server, the need to choose, thier element, BUT, the dont hane Permissions totge /bending choose [Element] command, what's the Permissions for that command?? plz help me!

  • Avatar of codiaz codiaz Mar 06, 2014 at 05:22 UTC - 0 likes

    @justinwl: Go

    That is the only way... Permissions, if you do not know how to use them, I already said, go to their page, not this one.

    @nkomosim: Go

    Well, I hope it becomes inactive... Right now it is an active, non updating plugin. If it becomes inactive someone can take over the project.

  • Avatar of nkomosim nkomosim Mar 06, 2014 at 01:51 UTC - 0 likes

    So is this plugin inactive? It's been months since we've heard anything from the owner.
