    Old description (open)
    If you enjoy fighting monsters for glorious prizes or just the sheer thrill of battle, you and your friends can now join forces against hordes of Minecraft evils in the exciting gladiator-style survival mini-game MobArena!

    Heavily inspired by Deminetix' Fight-plugin, MobArena is a PvE-take on arena-gameplay, with a similar class-based system. Instead of fighting other players, you team up with them to beat oncoming waves of monsters, earning rewards in the process. MobArena can be played alone, or with as many friends as you like!

    • Fight oncoming waves of monsters
    • Play alone or team up with friends
    • Earn glorious prizes
    • Customizable classes, rewards and waves
    • Easy to set up
    • Extremely easy to use
    • Very few user commands
    • Supports Permissions and all major economies
    • Supports Spout
    • Supports Heroes
    Note: When you post a bug report, please provide a stacktrace/error from the server log/console window. Post this stacktrace in either a pastebin, a pastie, or a CODE-block! The same applies for config-files, permissions-files, etc! Please don't put them directly in your posts, as they become gigantic and annoying to read. If you don't follow this guideline, I might ignore your post!

    Wiki - Instructions, commands, FAQ, etc.
    I have set up a Wiki for MobArena. It contains a bunch of information and guides on how to set up and customize arenas, an overview of all the commands, how to set up Permissions, as well as frequently asked questions.

    New: MobArena now has its own IRC channel (#mobarena @ EsperNet). Click here for a web-based IRC client. Feel free to stop by to get help setting everything up if you really don't understand the Wiki and the instructional video, or to have a chat about MobArena (or anything else, for that matter) :)

    Getting started with MobArena, by Flamers
    Flamers made this really easy-to-follow, simple video of how to get started with MobArena. It covers installing the plugin, defining an arena region and setting up basic leaderboards, as well as a few pointers for arena design.

    Note: This video was made for v0.67, but all the in-game instructions still work the same for the latest versions. The config-file has changed, so make sure to read the Wiki on how to set it up.

    To avoid wasting not only your own time, but mine as well, I expect everyone to do some extensive troubleshooting before posting bug reports. What does this mean?

    Try MobArena on a fresh server.
    MobArena works perfectly fine when I release it. Sure, there are a few bugs, but it works. If it doesn't work for you, something is most likely wrong on your end. Set up a local test-server, and verify that MobArena works before claiming that it doesn't. When you have verified that MobArena does indeed work, you can start adding other plugins and settings until something conflicts.

    Disable other plugins.
    The first thing you need to do is disable all other plugins. If you can't reproduce the bug with other plugins disabled, you know that you have a conflicting plugin. Now perform a binary search on the other plugins, or if you don't know how to do that, just add a couple of plugins back to the plugins-folder, try to reproduce the bug, and if you can't, the conflicting plugin must be in the remaining set of plugins.

    Write down reproduction steps.
    Figure out the exact steps to reproduce/trigger the bug. I need precise steps, and as much information as possible, because there are often many things that could be going on. An example of reproduction steps could be:
    1. Type /ma join
    2. Punch the Archer class sign
    3. Wait for someone else to join
    4. Punch the iron block
    5. Type /ma leave before the other player picks a class

    Check the console window/server.log
    Make sure you check the server.log file for any MobArena errors or exceptions. If you find any, copy the ENTIRE exception (including all the lines that say "at com.garbagemule.MobArena...") and paste it (with the other information) in a CODE-tag here in the thread.

    I develop MobArena for the fun of it and the positive feedback is all it takes to make me happy, but a few people have asked for a link, so if you're one of them, here's a link: Donate - You can donate as much as you want, even down to a few cents! If I get enough donations, I will spend the money on an extra Minecraft account to aid me in developing/testing/debugging MobArena :)


    • Updated for CB 1337.
    • The repair-delay node is now unused! The reason for this is that it is now possible (with the release of 1317) to cancel block damage in explosions, and still retain the animation and sound! This also means that arenas should be fully pistons-compatible (for arenas that don't use soft-restore or force-restore)! I'm hoping to see some screenshots and videos of shifting arenas! :)
    • You can now right-click signs in the lobby! I finally found a super easy solution to the improperly updating inventory issue with right-clicking class signs. The result is that players can now left- or right-click as they please. This should solve all issues related to players not being able to choose classes, due to spawn region and WorldGuard/Factions/whatever conflicts.
    • It is no longer possible to warp out of the lobby.
    • New per-arena setting: final-wave - Allows for setting a final wave, meaning on that wave, the arena will end, regardless of how many players are alive.
    Version (open)

    • v0.94.3.11 - Updated Register, built against CB 1240.
    • v0.94.3.8 - Added basic leaderboards.
    • v0.94.3.6 - Fixed MagicSpells support - MobArena no longer supports MagicSpells pre-v1.1!
    • v0.94.3.5 - Fixed a bunch of bugs introduced with CB 1185, as well as a couple of minor MobArena bugs.
    • Updated for CraftBukkit #1185
    • Updated economy support (now supports iConomy 6).
    • Added the three new mob types, Enderman/Endermen, CaveSpider/CaveSpiders, Silverfish. They can be used just like the other mob types in the waves.
    • Endermen cannot pick up arena blocks (this is why).
    • Endermen cannot place blocks in arena regions.
    • The per-class permission syntax has been fixed and changed slightly. The Wiki has been updated (clicky).
    • Fixed MagicSpells issues.
    Version 0.94.2 (open)

    • Redstone circuits now work properly in arenas.
    • Lightning now properly strikes on spawnpoints on special waves.
    • Fixed an issue where players somehow warping/cheating out of the arena world get kicked from the server when discovered.
    • Added MagicSpells support. Use the magicspells.yml file to ban certain spells from the arena either for the whole session, or only during boss waves.
    • Fixed the Heroes death conflict. MobArena and Heroes should now play nice together. Further Heroes support is planned for upcoming releases.
    • [COLOR=#1000000]MobArena will no longer support the discontinued Permissions 2.x and 3.x permission systems.[/COLOR] Recommended permissions systems include PermissionsBukkit (defacto standard) or PermissionsEX.
    Version 0.94.1 (open)

    • Added two new boss abilities: 'shuffle-positions' and 'flood'. Try them out!
    • Players disconnecting/crashing during an arena session no longer get corrupted data files due to economy rewards.
    • Weapon durability is now correctly set to "unlimited".
    • Item sub-types (cocoa beans, bonemeal, colored wool, etc.) now work again.
    • Players can no longer join the arena without first picking a class.
    • MobArena now works with spawn-monsters=false again.
    Version 0.94 (open)

    • Completely revamped the waves system! Undeniably the biggest feature in MobArena since multiple arenas in v0.92, the new customizable waves are guaranteed to bring much more awesomeness to your MobArenas. The waves system brings two new wave types, swarm waves and boss waves. The latter is a very elaborate feature, and the whole waves system has been given its own page on the Wiki. Note: MobArena will ignore all old wave settings, but use sane defaults.
    • Revamped the logging system. Instead of logging: true, you can now use logging: yml/xml. The logging system will now keep track of the last session only, but also maintain a collection of 'totals' for each arena. The idea behind these easy-to-parse files is making the stats available on server web pages.
    • Added SuperPerms/PermissionsBukkit support. Note that specifying mobarena.arenas.* and mobarena.classes.* probably won't work, but these nodes are given to everyone by default.
    • Added Spout support. Currently, the only Spouty thing MobArena does is print (some) announcements as notifications/achievements. This should limit the amount of "chat spam" that MobArena produces. Other Spout-features are planned, but don't expect something crazy. Note that MobArena does NOT require Spout!
    • Monsters will no longer target pet wolves. This is a major nerf to pet classes, but they were very overpowered as it was.
    • Fixed item amounts greater than 64 sometimes bugging out. You should now be able to put arrow:1024 for your Archer classes :)
    • Fixed players losing their stored items and/or earned rewards upon disconnecting from the arena.
    • Fixed blocks not restoring when burned by fire.
    • Fixed an issue with entry fees. They should no longer cause any problems.
    • Fixed slimes. That's right! Slimes that spawn as a result of bigger slimes splitting upon death are now considered arena monsters. This also means that Slimes no longer drop slime balls; as intended.
    • Revamped the repairing algorithm. It is now MUCH more sophisticated, and is capable of repairing not only signs and containers, but also torches, doors and beds. Redstone -should- repair properly as well, but it is still slightly buggy.
    • Added support for restorable containers. Registered chests, dispensers, and furnaces will have their contents stored upon arena start, and restored at arena end. This is useful for providing the arena players with chests with e.g. upgrades or food.
    • Added new commands (for the feature above) - /ma addcontainer <name>, /ma delcontainer <name>, /ma containers. These commands work much like the the spawnpoint commands. To add a container, simply look at the container and type /ma addcontainer <name>.

    Awesome, about the summoner though... what does it summon?

    lol you have three bowman btw, why not just change the name of bowman2 to something like... ranger?

    Actually... you know what? I think I may make a HomeStuck arena and a pony arena with HomeStuck classes for the classes on the HS one and the mane six ponies for the classes on the pony one... I once saw someone make DnD character sheets for the mane six, maybe I should base that off of that...

    I have a little problem. I set up the plugin like in the tutorial videos and it should be works.
    After we type the /ma join command, and we select the class on the sign, we do not receive items (armor,weapon etc...)
    Please help me if you can. Thanks

    Can you put your config file in here please?
    I guess you didn't make the lobbyregion or didn't have the classes spelled right?

    I was using the dev build,, and it was working with craftbukkit 1.2.5 RB3.0.
    I go to change up the config file and when i start it up it gets error like it can't find the arenas i made and it isn't up to date.
    So i took the unofficial build,, to try and fix it but I get the same results. (error above is from build when i start the server)

    stop and start your server, this is a known issue but I'm not sure why it happens. There's nothing in the code that would not allow you to get your stuff

    What's the top of the error say? Usually it says something like "Error enabling MobArena" or "Null Pointer Exception" or something, and would be 1 line above what you've posted.
    However, by the looks of it, it's trying to get some arenas to load, and it's failing to do so. Do you get any MobArena messages saying that "Arena blah's world is missing" or something like that before this error occurs?

    Lol nvm, I updated my CraftBukkit again and it works now. Thanks for the reply though :)

    hmm... what multi-world plugin do you use, if any? have you tried other variants of "worldone" in the MobArena config?

    Basically what seems to be happening, is because the world can't be found, the arena doesn't get loaded, and since those are your only 2 arenas, the "default selected arena" for some of the MobArena commands tries to get the first item of something zero items big, causing this issue.

    Did you change the world name for the default arena? and for the second arena? You shouldn't do anything on the default arena setup, it's an example soo you will never be able to join it. And for your arena did you change anything on the location or the world name in the yml file?

    Ya, "worldone" is the only world on the server...I'll try and delete the mob arena files and start from the beginning and see if I can get it to work.

    Edit-so I loaded up the unofficial fix and it worked except it didn't make the boss class files, so I copied the ones from dev build and put them in the abilities folder. so far it works

    davc Did you destroyed them when you joined? If you did just deconnect and reconnect, everyone else can still see them normally, and you can still chose and fight. But as long as you don't deconnect all signs you destroyed when you joined or if the editarena is of will just be blank.

    grab the unofficial build found here: http://goo.gl/9uoLG
    it's version and fixes that error, amongst other things

    I'm guessing you may be using v0.94.4.52, which had a bug that didn't show the class signs properly in the auto-generated arenas. So what you'll need to do is auto-degenerate that arena, upgrade to the unofficial build, and redo the auto-generate. On the other hand, you could build your own awesome arena like I did back on page 103, make your own lobby and add the signs yourself, and you don't have the issue anymore :D

    I seem to be having a problem ive made a arena and everything works. But at random places around the map there are mob Arena regions. Why?

    this means you don't have any boss class files (for the abilities). I believe it's a bug in the version your using because the same thing happened to me. I would try and find the ability files on the wiki. Or use the dev build and load it and it will make you the files. Take those files and copy them to your first mob arena folder (v0.94.4.71) in the abilities folder (plugins/mobarena/abilities). It should work, because it works for me.:)

    Please help me. I REALLY like this plugin and everyone on my server always complains that it's not working. Here is that pastebin thing.. http://pastebin.com/wH4xgm38 I don't really understand how all the plugin files work, so please don't reply in a very complicated instruction on how to fix it. If you can, please reply to [email protected] because I am not going to be on this site in a long time. Thank you SO much if you help me, later. :D

    wanna not quote the original post, you take up the entire page.

    Did you try renaming the arena in your world and the arena in the config file?
