About EssentialsX​

EssentialsX is the essential plugin suite for Spigot and Paper servers, including over 130 commands and countless features for servers of any scale!

EssentialsX is a modern continuation of the original Essentials suite for Bukkit, with 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 website.


  • 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.
  • EssentialsX officially supports Minecraft 1.18.1 and 1.17.1, and also runs on older versions dating back to 1.8.8.
