Vampire is a plugin originally made by MassiveCraft.com, the same who made the popular Factions plugin. Currently we use a fork of the project maintained by Mowstyl on SpigotMC. It provides a fun addition allowing players to become Vampires, which have their own pros and cons. A lot of the info on this page is sourced from their plugin's page here and some things are customized for our server.
To become a vampire, you must get infected with The Dark Disease. The dark disease is not to be confused with Vampirism. It will take about 3 day cycles for it to become Vampirism.
To contract the disease, you can use an Alter of Darkness, accept a blood offer from a Vampire or engage in combat with one (which can be accidental or intentional).
To stop the disease from progressing you can use an Alter of Light or Holy Water. The disease will not reset if you logoff or die, and the disease will not progress while offline.
To use an alter, right click the alter's main block (Gold for Darkness, Lapis Lazuli for Light). Alters can be built by anyone. The plugin makes Dead Buses a drop, and Webs can be crafted from string using a Custom Recipe.
Alter of Darkness
Alter requires a Gold Block and the following materials within a 10 block radius:
- 30 Obsidian
- 5 Web
- 5 Dead Bush
- 2 Diamond Block
Additionally you will require the following items in your inventory to activate the alter to contract the Dark Disease.
