"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!

Stats collection and data gathering

  • This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system. Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true. The following information is collected and sent to
    • 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.

    I use Essentials and have never had a problem with the two not playing nicely.

    And it will be nice if there will be /bindonininventory, for chest shops and such, so when the item is in someone's inventory it will be his immidetly

    I just created a pull request on GitHub that adds MythicDrops 2.0.0 support. In the pull request, it supports both MythicDrops before and after 2.0.0.

    Does it work with Essentials?

    Is there any way for me set lore items to be BOP globally?  I have lot's of custom lore drops from mobs etc using Otherdrops,  I would really like it if they would drop from mobs as BOP or BOE, but from what I gather all I can do is let players use the bind command themselves?

    [edit] I'm going to guess by the lack of response the answer is - no.
