    Could a plugin be added for withers not to drop stone swords but instead wither swords, which have a chance to deal wither effect for 30 secs (or less).

    Also wither potions, maybe made with nether wart and glistening coal (lol glistening coal, plugin alert), I think that'd be awesome

    What do you think?

    Wither swords would be too op but maybe create a splash potion of witherness? I dunno... Its kinda like poison though. Good creativity, but I don't think we could use that :/

    Wither swords would have a very small chance to give wither effect+they'd probably be as good as iron swords

    Kinda OP. 30 seconds of wither kills everything. Also it'd be sorta weird to have only 1 custom item like that. I think if we were to add, this, we'd want to add tons of cool items instead of just 1 sword. I think this idea would go better into some kind of survival rpg server.

    Maybe have it when you right click, it sends either 2 for 5 seconds? If not then no.

    I like it, but it will absolutely dominate in pvp, which is its only use because i can't see people withering creepers or skeletons anytime soon.
    If it was as rare as a wither head then that'd seem a little more balanced as that's a lot of hours of farming for this sword. I don't like the idea of it having a durability of a stone sword however, and if it already has a wither enchantment on it, adding things like sharpness, unbreaking, fire aspect or looting is going to cost a fortune.
    Still, adding variety couldn't hurt anybody. If it doesn't end well they could always take it out.

    As for the potions, this sounds like a good way to suicide if you accidentally wither yourself, which is probably something that i'd do >.>

    I say they shouldn't be enchantable, imagine someone with wither and fire aspect.

    Lol, the madness!

    It'll probably work like protection does with armour, and let you only have one or the other.

    Maybe 5-10% probability to deal the effect, and the time is random between 5-20 seconds

    This is a nice idea and would really fit for a survival server. But I am not sure if that is necessary on Skyblock?
    For what would you use it besides kitpvp? Also, as others mentioned it seems to be pretty op to have a sword with wither effect ;)

    Well more and more people are starting to play skyblock for the pvp aspect, so it doesn't seem such a bad idea. Plus if it only lasted for up to 10 seconds or so, and couldn't be enchanted with fire aspect alongside the wither poison, it still wouldn't match weapons like power V or sharpness V bows / diamond swords.

    Wither effect is kinda like fire aspect and as superxsnap said, fire aspect shouldn't be obtainable on those swords

    Basically if you try and put for example a protection book onto a projectile protection chestplate, it'll apply the protection, but remove the projectile protection. This would work in the same way, as you're basically putting fire aspect onto your sword twice, only with wither poison the fire can't be put out with water ;)

    People would then need to bring milk to the arena (lol) which isn't easy to obtain because of cows and iron. each milk bucket would be one more inventory slot so full diamonds would bring less potions
