Important Notice

This version of MythicMobs requires the useage of Java 8 (or later) on your servers. Not using Java 8 will cause the plugin to not work at all. This will also apply to future versions of MythicMobs.

Minecraft 1.9 Support

This version of MythicMobs is mostly dedicated to be compatible with Minecraft/Spigot 1.9 servers. We've done our very best to make MythicMobs utilize the new features given by Minecraft 1.9, for instance speaking of dual wielding, adding the new potion-effects and so on. If we've overlooked some distinctive features that you'd like to see in MythicMobs, be sure to post your suggestion in the Bug Reports & Suggestions sub-forum.

Compability with Spigot 1.8.8 and 1.7.10 remains in the plugin.


NEW: JSONMessage

A new type of sending messages. Supports click- and hover-events like executing, suggesting commands and tooltips. Works just like the minecraft:tellraw-command! See JSONMessage.


You can now specify the mobs' offhand in the equip-mechanic using slot “5”. See Equip mechanic.
