Wizardly Magic

Wizardly Magic


Want to be a cool wizard with all kinds of spells? Well now you can! You can build a Spell Altar, craft over 50 unique spells, gain knowledge, and use all kinds of wizardly magic! This plugin is inspired by the Minecraft Forge mod Ars Magica.
Note: This plugin is in early alpha, so expect bugs, if you get any please create a ticket with them here.

Spell Altar:
You build a spell altar by putting redstone around an enchanting table. You don't gold blocks, but the type of blocks the altar is build on effects the altar level. Certain spells require higher level altars.

  • Anything: 0
  • Iron: 1
  • Gold: 2
  • Diamond: 3


Knowledge is needed to make spells, each spell has certain knowledge it requires to be crafted. You can learn different bits knowledge by doing normal Minecraft actions. For example, picking up a Notch apple will teach you "Divine Intervention". Sometimes you can get mana from gaining knowledge. You can see info on how to get knowledge in the "Book of Knowledge".

Spells require mana to cast, you start with 10 (Unless your server owner has changed it). When you gain knowledge you can get mana. Also there is a slight chance to gain mana each time you cast a spell.

Spell Book:
When you kill a boss (Wither, Ender Dragon, or Elder Guardian), they have a 50% chance to drop a spell book. You can store up to 9 spells in a Spell Book. Sneak right-click to open the book, then you can put spells in, or take them out. Right-click the cast the spell in slot 1. Sneak left-click to toggle the active spell to the one next to it.

To craft a spell, you must put the recipe in a spell altar, then drop a Arcane Scroll on the altar. If you don't have required knowledge, if the recipe is invalid, or if your altar level is to low, you will get a chat message prompt telling you what to do. You can see info on spells and their recipes in the "Book of Spells".

You can craft staffs for better spell manipulation. Once you get a staff your click with it to open the binding menu. You put the spells you want in the slots and close it. Now those spells have been bound to the staff, you can not change these spells ever, its a one time thing. You can right-click to cast and left-click to cycle through the spells. There are three tiers of staffs, they get harder and harder to craft. For crafting recipes see the recipe section.

Special Mob Drops:
This plugin adds special mob drops that are used in spell recipes. For example, there is a 20% chance for a creeper to drop a "creeper heart" when killed. Then you can use the "creeper heart" to craft the TNT spell. You can change, remove, and add these in the config as you wish. You can see all the special drops, how to get them, and the chance they have to drop in the "Book of Drops".

Wizard Robes:
Wizard Robes are just normal leather armour. However, all the armour pieces must be the same colour. If you are wearing full wizard robes your mana will regenerate double.

Mana Potions:
You can make mana potions by throwing a empty glass bottle into a pool of water, then drop a slime ball, magma cream, or eye of ender in with it. Lastly throw in some binding powder. It will form a mana potion. If you drop in more than one of each of these items it will keep generating at one a second till it runs out of ingredients.

This plugin is very configurable. All the spells, recipes, and knowledge are configurable in the config. It does not end there though, you can crate your own spells with all the components the default spells use. Also, for convenience there is a /setSpellRecipe command to make setting a spell's recipe easier.

Spell Recipes:
You can see spell recipes with a command. For a list of spells, info on them, and the command to get each spells recipe, you will need to craft the Book of Spells:

Other Books:
You can craft other books for more info.

To craft staffs or staff caps, you need to put the recipe into a spell altar. But instead of dropping an arcane scroll onto the altar, you have to drop binding powder (Which you can get from killing zombies).

Staff Types:

Note: The staff caps seen here are not the vanilla items, they are ether crafted, or dropped from mobs.

The ender-pearl in this recipe is just the vanilla one, but the other four items are special orbs dropped by mobs.
