This week MagicaCraft has implemented a classes system for Mage, Assassin, and Archer. Each of them features a unique set of powers that can be used for their class.
Mages are able to cast spells using the /cast (or /c) command. To see what spells you have type /cast list, and cast with /cast <spell name.>
Assassins are able to climb walls and other obstacles by holding shift and right-clicking a block.
Finally, Archers have a series of special arrows which can be selected using the /arrow or /arrows command. This includes:
Multi Arrow - Fires multiple arrows at once
Poison Arrow - Poisons your opponent when hit
Blinding Arrow - Blinds your opponent when hit
Life Steal Arrow - Drain HP from your target based on the damage you deal
Exploding Arrow - Explodes the arrow on impact
Blink Arrow - Teleports you to the landing location of the arrow
Wither Arrow - Fires a wither skull at your opponent
Warrior abilities and some additional abilities for the other classes will be released next

The next update of MagicaCraft will be the biggest and most in depth update we have ever had. The staff and I have been planning and preparing this update for over 6 weeks and it is almost here.
For the majority of MagicaCraft I have been limited with what I can add to the server due to available public plugins. Originally, I mixed up a bunch of plugins and made a pretty solid 1.0 classes system. This improvised setup required several unique plugins to function which meant it broke a lot and was pretty buggy. For a while this is what the server was and I managed to get to the top of server lists with over 250 players online. MagicaCraft stayed with the same classes system for over a year and eventually got changed in the 2.0 update.
After I learned a fair amount of Java I started writing plugins to add more custom features to the server. Eventually, I made the MagicaClasses plugin which was my biggest project at the time. It took 2 weeks and 2,000 lines of code to complete. There were a few minor bugs with the plugin but the main issue I noticed was the inconvenience it had. I considered some modifications to improve the Classes plugin but couldn't find a suitable solution. For the new 3.0 update I decided to completely scrap the old classes system and rewrite the current one based on the most popular class ideas.
