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.

    Could you possibly add a Fire Tornado ability? That burns or suffocates entities inside

    @T3hGhost: Go

    It works on any version above 1.4.2, at the very least.

    @sackdirt: Go

    Bloodbending works on every creature for simplistic reasons, and for functionality. That's interesting for Tremorsense, we'll see. It seems like it's potentially OP (in the vanilla-minecraft sense of the word).

  • Avatar of sackdirt sackdirt Dec 02, 2012 at 21:06 UTC - 0 likes

    Does Blood bending work on Magma cubes, blazes, Enderman, and Skeletons? they don't have water in them. and could Tremorsense detect ores?

    Thanks a bunch: codiaz, monstercat and MistPhizzle. Your help on this forum is much appreciated.

    @Toby_B: Go

    You can do that through permissions, as codiaz said.

    @SiosDashcR: Go

    Thanks for mentioning the /dynmap show thing, I'll work on that. I'll also see how I like EarthBlast if it behaved a little more like WaterManipulation in that respect, but I don't know if I'll approve.

    As for destroying the earth, that's exactly why earthbending reversion was added (a long time ago). It fixes itself. You must have either completely manually disabled that feature, or otherwise haven't noticed it fixing itself.

    Shockwave causes no more lag than other abilities. Make sure you have the latest dev build if that isn't the case.

    @Darinator101: Go

    You can negate that bending.water node to prevent people from choosing waterbending. Same with the rest of the elements. If you're talking about the general choose command, the node is bending.command.choose. Which is listed at the top of this page in a link, please read.

    @codiaz: Go

    This loading bug is indeed already fixed in the latest dev build that isn't released yet :D

    @CyanLights: Go

    Yep, I found it and fixed it.

    @monstercat101: Go

    Ultimately I'll probably just stick with the good ol' /bending permaremove function. I don't know that the idea would be something that adds enough functionality/fun to warrant implementation.

    @WaveDorvay: Go

    It's a bukkit plugin. http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/minecraft-last-airbender/pages/faqs/#w-can-you-make-this-a-singleplayer-mod

    @SherlockyHolmes: Go

    Your Factions is out of date, it seems.

    @Kenner03: Go

    @Kenner03: Go

    @monstercat101: Go

    Right now there's a typo in the code, the permission node is "bending.avatarstate". This is fixed in the next dev build.

    @Hodong: Go

    Can you maybe try that again in a comprehensible sentence?
