Bring the concept of regenerating shield "health" from FPS games to Minecraft!

Have you ever dreamed of a day where the “personal shield” mechanic from games like Borderlands, Halo, Overwatch, etc. were in Minecraft? No? Well I did. Thanks to the absorption health being an actual, editable field instead of just being chained to a potion, this is possible to do somewhat rather elegantly in Minecraft.

  • Create unlimited number of shields (well, the limit being how many names you can come up with).
  • Shield size, recharge rate and delay are all configurable.
  • Shield recharges after not being hit.
  • Shield damage protects against health and armor damage when active.
  • Players who take shield damage glow instead of just turning red momentarily.
  • Integration with MLG Damage Indicators
    • Shield damage appears in orange instead of red.


  • /createshield <shield name> - Converts a helmet held in the primary hand to an AbsorptionShield. Requires absorptionshields.createshield permission, given to ops by default.


    strength: 12 # Shield's max capacity in hearts
    time: 2 # Seconds before shield starts regenerating
    rate: 3 # How fast the shield recharges in hearts per second
    strength: 24
    time: 5
    rate: 1
Sounds: # If you use a resource pack you can set custom sounds here. You could also experiment with vanilla sounds as well!
  shieldHitSelf: fortress.shieldhitself # taking damage
  lowShieldHitSelf: fortress.lowshieldhitself # taking damage when shield is at 1/3 or lower capacity
  shieldOfflineAlert: fortress.shieldoffline # Plays when shield is broken (the "beep beep beep" alert). Doesn't play if player manually unequips shield
  shieldBroken: fortress.shieldbroken #  shield shattering/breaking
  shieldBootingUp: fortress.shieldbootingup # Shield regenerating from empty.
  shieldFullyRecharged: fortress.shieldrecharged # Shield has fully regenerated.

I hope you enjoy this plugin as much as I did in creating and using it!
