Aurelium Skills is a feature-packed skills plugin that enhances the vanilla survival experience. Players level up skills to earn stat buffs, unlock and level up abilities, and more. The plugin is very configurable and customizable, allowing you to tailor the experience to fit your server. There are many powerful and unique features that not many other plugins have, and more features and updates are being actively developed.

There are 15 skills, each of which has a unique combination of two stats that it rewards. Level up skills by gaining XP by doing certain actions depending on the skill. All skills are easily viewable in GUI inventory menus, accessible using /skills.

There are 6 stats that buff the player:
  • Strength  Increases attack damage
  • Health  Increases max health
  • Regeneration  Increases health and mana regen speed
  • Luck  Increases luck attribute and double drop chance for common blocks
  • Wisdom  Increases experience gain, max mana, and decreases anvil costs
  • Toughness ✦ Reduces incoming damage
These stats are leveled up simply by leveling up skills. You can buff/nerf stats and configure which skills level up which stats.

Stats are easily viewable through the Stats Menu by doing /stats

Abilities are perks and buffs that you unlock and level up as you level up skills. Each skill has up to 5 abilities, giving many different perks. Abilities are passive, meaning they do not require any extra player input to activate or use.

  Some Abilities and Descriptions

The chance/damage/power an ability has called the value is fully customizable. You can change the base value, the value increase per level of ability, and which skill levels an ability unlocks or levels up at. By default, individual abilities level up every 5 skill levels, but every skill level unlocks or level-ups some ability. Learn how to configure abilities here.

Mana Abilities
Mana Abilities are a special type of ability that costs mana to use and are active, meaning they require the player to activate or use. By default, mana abilities are unlocked at level 7 of that skill and increase in level every 7 levels. Level increases can change duration/power, cooldown, and mana cost, which are all configurable.
