This build only works on 1.8.3 and above!

The resource pack (or your own version of it) is now very important!

Spells, wands and brooms won't look right, and most spell sound effects will not work without the resource pack.


  • Disabled combining wands on an anvil by default (use enable_combining: true in config.yml to change back)
  • Projectile, TNT, ThrowItem, ThrowBlock and Firework all track their projectiles now.
    This means the actions won't complete until the projectile hits or expires, this may
    impact existing spells that use these actions coupled with Repeat.


  • Undo action "target_self" parameter changed to "target_caster"
  • Range parameter now defaults to zero. Target type defaults to "none" unless range is set.
  • The target_self flag has been generalized, defaults to true if target type is "self".
  • May affect Hat-based spells, add "target_self: true" if necessary.


  • The /cast command now bypasses cooldowns. If you don't want this, set "cast_console_cooldown_reduction: 0" in config.yml!


  • Changed icon for architect wand, you may need to tweak existing ones with
    /wand configure icon gold_pickaxe


  • Remove the "elder" wand from survival configs.
  • You can copy it back in if this is a problem for you
  • It conflicted with the potter elder wand in combined configurations


  • Build permissions for spells have been split into build vs break.
    This mainly affects Towny integration, but if you are using the bypass_build
    config option, or the bypass_build permission you may need to include bypass_break
    for the same effect.


  • Haste, health regen and hunger regen were removed in place of potion effects.
  • You may have (Admin, Wolf) wands that made you invulnerable but no longer do.
    You'll need to get a new one, or do "/wand configure protected true"


The worth_items list in config.yml has changed to "currency", and the format is different.
If you have a customized physical economy, please take note!


Spell shops were re-balanced. You can now tweak the "worth_base" value in config.yml to scale
spell prices up or down.

Spell shops now default to an emerald-based economy (rather than XP) if Vault is not found.
This is configurable via worth_items in config.yml.


4.6 is a major change under the hood, the biggest since 4.0. I've tried to keep everything
mostly the same, but there are some changes to be aware of.

General updates

  • MagicWorlds will need to be updated to 1.2
  • Changed configuration options related to construction interval / max blocks
  • The default restricted material list is much less restrictive. Building with TNT, emeralds, ore, etc is now allowed.
  • Updated and fixed dtlTraders integration.
  • You will need to fix your spell and wand shops- sorry
  • You may need to disable brush/spell/wand glow until an issue in dtlTraders is resolved

Custom spell configurations

If you have a custom spell configuration with "actions:" in it, you may need to update:

  • Iterate action renamed to Line
  • ReplaceMaterial action renamed to ModifyBlock
  • CoverAction split into Disc and Cover
  • To reproduce previous behavior, change "Cover" to "Disc" and add a "Cover" under it
  • Disc builds a Disc, Cover searches for the topmost block, up or down, on one block


Just in case anyone is actually using the API:

  • Changed API cast() methods to return success/failure


  • The "undo" spell changed its key to "rollback" to match the spell's name.


  • FlowerSpell flower lists moved to parameters section
  • Multi-target base spells no longer supported, must use ConeOfEffectAction (see: laser, push)
  • API Change: Spell.playEffects changed to use a CastContext


  • Many default spells migrated to the new "action" system.
  • Default configs changed drastically, all auto-undo.
  • Enchanting path options changed from max_xp_max and max_xp_regeneration to max_mana and max_mana_regeneration
  • Commands in command spell parameters have changed slightly.
    (@t -> @tn, @p -> @pn for target and player names)


  • All of the particle effect names have changed (internal EffectLib change).
    There is a PHP script available to help migrate custom configs.
  • WorldGuard 6 or higher is now required for region support!


  • The "enable_creative_mode_ejecting" in config.yml now controls the creative mode special
    behavior. If you have "enable_custom_item_hacks" set to false, you probably want to set
    enable_creative_mode_ejecting to false also.


  • Some magic items (spells, upgrades) may need to be updated. Sorry!
  • The "xp" casting cost has changed to "mana" ("xp" is still valid, but consumes player XP)
  • If you have a completely custom spells.yml, search are replace "xp:" for "mana:" to fix.


  • Drop support for Cratbukkit 1.6 - 1.7.2 is now the minimum required version
  • Update to EffectLib 2.0 - all effect class names have changed


  • The configuration option "wand_enchantable_item" is now off by default. This means
    that wands won't change to a wooden sword when enchanting. If you are using a pre-1.7.9
    version of Bukkit, you may (or may not) need to put this option back in config.yml


  • The particle effect names have changed to the EffectLib versions is all places:


  • Enchanting is now customizable via multiple enchanting paths. If you had previously modified the "random"
    template in wands.yml, you will need to transfer your work to enchanting.yml.
    There are also now multiple different enchanting paths, review wands.defaults.yml,
    you will need to override "path" for wands if you want them to continue to all use
    the same enchanting path (now called "master").

  • Crafting is now customizable, there are several new recipes apart from the old
    blaze rod + nether star default. Please review crafting.defaults.yml and adjust
    accordingly, especially if you have a customized crafting configuration.
