"Soulbound items for your RPG servers!"

Latest version is: v1.1.9


Soulbound is a plugin that makes it possible to have Soulbound items. Whenever an item is soulbinded, players cannot transfer the item to other players.


  • Bind items to a certain player
  • Does not override existing lore!
  • Flag items as "Bind on Pickup".

Soulbound Item

  • Prevent Soulbound items from being dropped (Configurable)
  • Prevent Soulbound items from being dropped on death (Configurable)
  • Keep Soulbound items after a death (Configurable)
  • Prevent Soulbound items from being stored inside containers (Chests, furnaces, dispensers etc) (Configurable)
  • "Bind on Equip" (For armor) or "Bind on Use" (For tools, using a pickaxe once will bind it)
  • Is supported by Loot! Works perfectly together.
  • Added support for EpicBossRecoded! See it in action here!
  • Added support for LoreLocks! See it in action here!
  • Added support for MythicDrops!

    • A unique identifier
    • The server's version of Java
    • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
    • The plugin's version
    • The server's version
    • The OS version/name and architecture
    • The core count for the CPU
    • The number of players online
    • The Metrics version
  • This plugin also utilizes Updater to check BukkitDev if there are updates present.

    @KazukiMC: Go

    add permission - soulbound.items.keep_on_death

    Anyone can write code a computer can understand, but professional developers write code *humans* can understand.

    So... I assume an update with mythicdrops broke a feature with soulbound?

    [06:35:20] [Server thread/ERROR]: [Soulbound] Plugin Soulbound v1.1.7-b16 has failed to register events for class because com/conventnunnery/plugins/mythicdrops/events/CreatureEquippedWithItemStackEvent does not exist.
    [06:35:21] [Thread-25/WARN]: [Soulbound] Could not get information about this Soulbound version; perhaps you are running a custom one?

    Is there any way to change the command for "/bind"? I use Heroes to bind spells to items which also uses "/bind", so if a Mage tries to bind a spell, it binds the item to them.

    @TheDavroar: Go

    Just that one item.

  • Avatar of TheDavroar TheDavroar Dec 06, 2013 at 12:04 UTC - 0 likes

    So if i use /bind on let's say, a diamond sword, will only that diamond sword be bound, or all diamond swords or..? Because I want all crafted items etc 'soulbound on equip' Any explanation highly appreciated.

    Thanks a lot.
