WorldGuard is a powerful plugin providing (1) area-specific protection, (2) world protection, (3) additional game rules, (4) blacklisting, and (5) various utilities.

NOTE: Bukkit may cease to exist in the future. For more information, please read this post.

  • Block creeper and wither block damage, falling damage, etc.;
  • Disable fire spread, lava fire spread, ice formation, Endermen picking up blocks, etc.;
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used;
  • Warn moderators when certain items and blocks are used;
  • Protect areas of your world so only certain people can build in them;
  • Set areas where PVP, TNT, mob damage, and other features are disabled;
  • Protect your server from various 'exploits' like magical obsidian creation machines;
  • Disable, or enable, various Minecraft features, like sponges from classic;
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default.

    Please add the ability to change the time of day in a region without altering the outside world! Thanks!

    With the latest 6.0 Beta 2 version you cannot shoot firearrows in a worldguard region. Outside worldguard regions you can! ( Firearrows become normal arrows )

    I really wish the developers would make a permission node for the slay command. :(

    I get this on build #1463 : On Spigot 1604

    It seems that WG Custom Flags aren't supported !

    Can't see the full timings/events causing it, would be helpful to see a full report to investigate. :)

    Worldguard is causing a lot of lag on my server. See these timings: Timings

    It seems to be this way since I upgraded from Spigot 1.7.5 to Spigot 1.7.10 ( with 1.8 protocol applied )
