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.

    Wow, 3 pages of comments to go through because Thanksgiving. Great.

    @Konszi: Go

    You cannot download old versions, and you don't want to. Enjoy change, don't get stuck on old abilities.

    @codiaz: Go

    NoCheatPlus is mostly compatible with my plugin (after a lot of workarounds), however anything other than Creative flight and Bending flight will be screwed up, due to these workarounds. But I use NCP on all my servers, so yes it's compatible. You will need to deactivate some of NCP's fighting checks (like range and multitarget).

    @codiaz: Go

    If when Bukkit updated your server is performing more slowly, that's probably a problem with Bukkit itself that will be fixed, not with my plugin.

    @scaler16: Go


    @AppleButter6: Go

    There are at least 3 links above you telling you how to download the development build (1.1.0) of Bending :P

    @Makemyday17: Go

    MistPhizzle is correct, Bukkit currently has no way to do blue fire, or lightning from hands instead of the sky. Period.

    @MistPhizzle: Go

    Thank you so much for trying to handle this flood of comments while I was on vacation and out of state. :D

    @jordanrracer: Go

    That feature honestly doesn't seem useful, unabusable, or intuitive at all. And Mist is correct, flagging a worldguard region for no PvP (Bending v1.0.7) or no build (v1.1.0) will block bending.

    @DCdog21: Go

    It was merged with FireBlast, is no longer buggy, and a lot more in line with firebending from the show.

    @jordanrracer: Go

    If you're worried about people griefing ice with waterbending, why are you not also worried about people breaking it with their fists? Just protect the region from griefing as you usually would (by blocking build there) and tada, protected from all bending grief too.

    @silverfrost98: Go

    Then there's an error message in the console. I'll need that. Chances are your java is outdated, which is why I fixed that in the dev build (just use that).

    @monstercat101: Go

    I still have not gotten to it.

    @orkun1675: Go

    Learn your favorite permissions plugin and disable the permission node bending.* in the world you want. Tada.

    So how can I desable bending in other worlds? Where build is allowed but PvP isn't. I only want my players to bend in the spawn world outside of WorldGuard regions and Towny regions. Is this possible?

    Thank you all for you help.

    @jordanrracer: Go

    The only thing is that if only one person per bending can make you that bending is that : if he isn't online than the people who join can't become a specific bending so that is kinda boring so I think it is only fun if you have like a quest with a npc that makes ya that bending.

    @jordanrracer: Go

    To use Lightning: Have the Ability Slot selected, then hold Shift until there's smoke coming out of your face (cause.. eh... your face burns from the lightning or something) and then just release Shift and there will be a lightning bolt cast down on your target location.

    @MistPhizzle: Go

    Ok thank you! I hope you can add these extra permissions!

    Also thank you for the tip on preventing earthbenders from griefing.

    I have another request. How about in the config, we can disable an option for waterbenders to not bend water from ice and grief the iceblock? Or at least not breaking the iceblock at all and you can still take water out of it? Because we made a cloud city made of ice and snow and it's already a shame we had to replace most of the ice with snow since waterbenders were able to grief it.

    My question: How do I use the lightning ability? That's the only one I don't know how to use! :P

    @Makemyday17: Go

    No not possible ''all these features can't because bukkit does not stimilute it'': said orion (or something like this :P) But no also someone asked if orion could use the ender beam for it but bukkit/mc doesn't give the opportuninty to do so. Also blue fire isn't possible because theres no blue fire in mc.

    @MarkusOlsen: Go

    And i can do it in dutch! :D

    @Konszi: Go

    What he wanna ask is: "My question is has anyone a link to download version"
