Griefing Protection

ProtectionStones allows a player to place a special block, and this protects their area from griefing.

This small plugin was inspired by PreciousStones but only has the property protection blocks. This allows players to place one of three types of ore blocks to protect their property.

The player doesn't require any special permissions, they just need to get one of the three following ore blocks which you can give or sell in game using other plugins:

Coal Ore gives 11x11x11 protection area.

Lapis Ore gives 21x21x21 protection area.

Diamond Ore gives 41x41x41 protection area.

See the Configuration Page if you would like to change the block types, the dimensions or even set the Y-Axis to be from sky to bedrock, set group limiting, etc.

When the player places the block it creates a WorldGuard Region that gives the player ownership of that area and in turn grief protection. If the player breaks the ProtectionStone then they get the stone back and the region is removed from WorldGuard's Region List.

To install simply copy the ProtectionStones.jar file to your plugins folder, no configuration necessary. The following Ore Blocks are supported as the defaults: Coal Ore, Lapis Ore, Diamond Ore.

ProtectionStones Regions

ProtectionStones Creates WorldGuard Regions with the following naming convention:




The x, y, and z coordinates are the location of the placed ProtectionStone which is in the center of the WorldGuard Region it creates. If the Region.SKYBEDROCK Setting is set to "true" (see the Configuration Page) then Y-Axis of the ProtectionStone isn't necessarily the vertical center of the region.

Incompatible with PreciousStones

Both plugins act on the same kind of ore blocks and have the same command name of "/ps".

Requires WorldGuard

WorldGuard is used to create and remove regions when the blocks are placed, otherwise ProtectionStones won't do anything (set not to load if WorldGuard isn't found).

    @Sylar6281MV: Go

    Use the latest WorldGuard build from here:


    I think it's sad how there has been no word from AxelDios regarding the plugin not supporting UUIDs.

    Hello! Do you plan on upgrading your plugin for 1.8? We are currently running a 1.8.1 server and ProtectionStones works pretty well but you cannot run any of the /ps flag commands. You can pretty much only place them and add and remove people from them. Great plugin by the way, keep up the great work!

    Hi, I even installed the plugin Dynmap and GamemodeInventories on my 1.7.10 server, now when I try to place a block it says me "You cannot place any ProtectionStones"

    Help Please

    Greetings and Thanks,

    Users who changed their usernames can't access their pstones. Using worldguard 6.0 #1580 and pstones 1.9j. Also using the latest Spigot build today.
