About EssentialsX
EssentialsX is the essential plugin suite for Spigot servers, including over 130 commands and many features for servers of all size and scale!

EssentialsX is a fork of the original Essentials 2 plugin for Bukkit servers, adding support for the latest Minecraft versions. EssentialsX also includes several performance enhancements and fixes on top of the original Essentials, as well as plenty of new useful features for servers.

You can view major differences and learn how to set EssentialsX up over at the EssentialsX wiki.

  • EssentialsX is designed to use modern permissions plugins - we strongly recommend LuckPerms. You also need Vault for prefix/suffix support.
  • EssentialsX currently supports CraftBukkit, Spigot and Paper (recommended). Other server implementations may work, but we don't recommend them as they may cause compatibility issues.
