When a player dies and respawns, set their heath & hunger levels, give them a set of armor and a weapon or tools, add a shield of invulnerability, prevent them from teleporting or using commands for a duration of time, apply potion effects and much more. Currently looking for more suggestions and ideas of things to do when players respawn!

Perfect plugin for servers that feature random spawn points or spawn at home settings, also great for servers that don't spawn players into pvp safe zones, helps prevent spawn camping. Use health/hunger settings to inflict a death penalty for dying for those hardcore servers. Many great uses!

Current Features

  • Respawn shield: A timed shield granted to players after they respawn in which they are invulnerable to attack by mobs and other players.
  • Respawn tp shield: A timed shield that blocks players from teleporting after they respawn.
  • Respawn command shield: A timed shield the blocks players from using commands after they respawn.
  • Length of time configurable on shields.
  • Set whether to block player from being able to attack during shield, or remove shield if player attacks.
  • Set player health on respawn.
  • Set player hunger on respawn.
  • Give player armor and item in hand when they respawn.
  • Totally configurable for item type, enchants, lore and even dye color on leather armor. Item in hand can be any bukkit item.
  • Respawn potion effects: Add potion effects to players when they respawn. Either as boosts or as penalties.

Expected Features

  • Respawn kits & inventory: Players get equipped with fresh goods when they respawn. (Armor and weapon added already added)
  • Respawn effects: Add cool respawn effects to players like lightning.

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes bStats plugin metrics system, which means that some information is collected and sent to

If you don't want that your server sends data to bStats you can disable it by setting enabled to false in the bStats config file. The config can be found in the /plugins/bStats/config.yml file. bStats has nearly no effect on your server's performance and the sent data is completely anonymous so please consider twice if you really want to disable it.
