Beware of the full moon!


To become a Werewolf, you have to get bitten (attacked) by a wolf or Werewolf at night and contract the Werewolf infection. This infection will turn the player into a Werewolf every night, starting the next night, if the player is under a open sky. To prevent turning, the player can stay inside during night.

  • When in wolf-form, character skin changes to a Werewolf skin (Only visible to other players)
  • When in wolf-form, players will become identifiable only as "Werewolf" in the playerlist and chat (Adding a element of mystery)
  • When in wolf-form, werewolves speak in a language which appears as growling noises to normal players.
  • A Werewolf automatically turns into his Wolf-form during a full moon, when under a open sky.
  • A Werewolf automatically turns into his Human-form at dawn.
  • A Werewolf only eats meat!
  • A Werewolf gains health from killing mobs! (Hunting)
  • A Werewolf does high unarmed damage!
  • A Werewolf moves faster!
  • A Werewolf pounces instead of merely jumping!
  • A Werewolf has night vision.
  • A Werewolf cannot wield Armor while in Wolf-form, but has a high natural defense!
  • A Werewolf can growl with /growl
  • A Werewolf can growl with /howl
  • Vampires cannot be infected with the Werewolf infection
  • When a Werewolf gets killed, the player re-spawns in human form.
  • Werewolves are very vulnerable to “Silver” (Gold) weapons.
  • Werewolves are the natural leaders of wild wolves
  • The Werewolf infection can be cured by consuming the Cure: The werewolf cure potion

The Werewolf Clans

There are 3 Werewolf clans, each with their own skin and ability.
A werewolf will spread the infection from his own clan.
Any other infection method will result in a random clan.

Clan NameAppearanceClan Skill
The SilvermanesGrey wolfSpeed 2, Damage 3
The BloodmoonsBlack wolfSpeed 2, Regeneration 3
The WitherfangsComic WolfSpeed 4, Jump 4

  • Clan members cannot damage eachother.
  • A clan member can view the ranked clan member list with the /ww list command.
  • The three werewolf clans get points for hunting other creatures while in Werewolf form.
  • Slaying werewolves from another clan, and especially the another clan's alpha, earns bonus points for the clan.

  • Periodically, the total score of each clan is calculated and the leading clan is announced.

Clan Alpha

The Clan alpha is the natural leader of the clan.
The Clan alpha is selected as the most "senior" of the werewolves in the clan, when the clan has lost its old Alpha.
Ways of losing the alpha are:

  • The alpha werewolf was slain by another clan member
  • The alpha werewolf has not transformed for some days and is therefore auto-cured (See the auto-cure setting)
  • The alpha werewolf has cured himself by drinking the cure potion

Alpha abilities are:

  • /howl ability has a stunning effect on all living creatures nearby
  • Double amount of damage
  • Half the amount of damage taken

Werewolf Maturity

As a werewolf, you gradually mature and gain more control over your condition depending on how many full moon transformations you have experienced:

Number of tranformationsMaturity
3You no longer drop clothes and items when transforming
5You can now transform at will with the /werewolf transform command
10Gold items no longer causes extra damage on you

Hunting werewolves

At any time, a bounty is being kept for the killing of a Werewolf.

Players can check the current bounty with /werewolf bounty and add to this bounty themselves by using /werewolf addbounty <amount>. A player can put himself into "werewolf hunting mode" by using /werewolf hunt. This helps him find the nearest werewolf simply using the compass. The player can disable "werewolf hunting mode" by using /werewolf hunt again.

The Werewolf bounty will be paid out to the first player to slay a Werewolf. Players can check the top 10 werewolf hunters with /werewolf top

NOTE: Werewolf hunting requires Vault to be installed.

Werewolf Potions

A player can drink the Werewolf potion to infect himself with the Werewolf infection.
Note that drinking the infection potion must be drunk during a full moon!

Admins can use the /werewolf potion command to hand out infection potions to players

Curing werewolves

A Werewolf player can drink the Werewolf cure potion to cure himself from being a Werewolf. Note that the player can only drink the cure while in HUMAN form. (Werewolves paws do not play well with bottles).

Selling potions using signs

Admins or players with the correct permission nodes can place signs for selling Werewolf infection potions and Werewolf cure potions.
Players can use these signs by simply click the sign to get a potion.

NOTE: When using Vault, the selling prices from the config.yml is used. Without vault, all these signs will give away potions for free.

To use signs, first make sure signs are enabled in the config and place signs with the following lines:

Werewolf cure potion sign

  1. Werewolf
  2. Infection

Werewolf cure potion sign

  1. Werewolf
  2. Cure

Werewolf trophies

Slaying a werewolf is quite an accomplishment.
After successfully slaying a werewolf with a any type of sword, the werewolf head is cut off and can be kept by the player as a trophy!


Werewolf currently supports:

LanguageAuthorConfig setting
ChinesePiggy Nightmarechinese

Simply set the "language" setting in the config.yml to any of these config settings (lower case) and the plugin will download the language file from my server at www.doggycraft.dk.

NOTE: Is there a language missing and are you are native speaker of it? Then please help by translating the language file and I will upload it for everyone to use!


Put the Werewolf.jar file in your /plugins folder and you are ready to go!

There is an additional way of infecting with the /werewolf infect <playername> to infect a specific player with the infection.
Using commands will place the Werewolf in a random clan.


NOTE: /ww can be used as instead of /werewolf

    Since you are obviously not planning to update it, please release the source code so we can update it instead.
