mcMMO Guide

What is mcMMO?

McMMO’s main function is to incorporate an RPG-like skill system that players have access to right from the beginning. Depending on how much a certain tool is used or a certain action is performed, players will gain experience that will eventually add bonuses such as double drops, rare drops, or ability enhancement.

McMMO can drastically enhance everyday activities, such as mining, farming, or digging, where the special abilities can speed up the process and in some cases, give better item drops. McMMO is also widely used by players who like to partake in PvP, whether it be in the PvP world, or a private arena, McMMO is an opponent of its own and can affect the outcome of a fight in a skilled users hands. McMMO also has a competitive side to it, players race one another to see who can achieve a higher power level or skill level first.


For more up-to-date and in-depth information feel free to check out the official mcMMO wiki or this fan-made wiki.

Power Level

A player’s power level can be determined by adding their total levels of all their skills (use /mcstats and /mcsb keep to test it out yourself). The power level itself has no true effect, aside from being a goal to strive for.


Skills are Broken into 3 Categories, Gathering, Combat, and Miscellaneous.



Excavation in McMMO provides a passive ability to dig more blocks and find treasures buried beneath the earth. What you find is based on your skill level and the type of material you are excavating. ​ The drops that are found from breaking blocks range from glow stone dust to discs and can turn a routine digging into a great profitable excavation.

XP Gain: Experience is gained by using a shovel to break dirt, grass, sand, and clay.

Active Abilities:

Giga Drill Breaker

Right-clicking with a Shovel in hand will activate Giga Drill Breaker. For a short period of time, it will allow you to instantly break any block that is most effective when broken with a shovel. The duration depends on the level.

Passive Abilities:

Treasure Hunter

Each time you dig a block, there is a chance to obtain items you would not normally get from digging. These drops can make some extra money, or be used to craft some useful items. Items/Blocks/Levels/Drop Chance: Glowstone (Grass, Mycelium, and Dirt): level 25 [5%] Slimeball (Clay): level 150 [1%] Egg (Dirt): level 250 [1%] Gold Music Disc (13) (any): level 250 [0.05%] Apple (Grass and Mycelium): level 250 [0.1%] Green Music Disc (cat) (any): level 250 [0.05%] Red/Brown Mushroom (Dirt and Mycelium): level 500 [0.5%] Cake (any): level 750 [0.05%]

Fishing is a skill that enhances fishing in Minecraft. Fishing skills are all passive. “It’s more than a challenge to make Fishing rewarding and interesting enough to spend time on, so what we’ve done is gone the traditional RPG route. When you fish you will have a chance to find treasure. Among this treasure, you can find magic items. You will find better items as your skill progresses and the chance of finding magic items will also increase.” – mcMMO Team.

At skill level 150+ you will be able to hook items off of mobs, allowing an easier way to farm certain mob items. For example, if you desperately need eggs you can simply use the fishing rod to obtain the item by casting your line into a chicken.

XP Gain: Experienced is gained by catching fish or treasures with a fishing rod, or by shaking items off of monsters and animals.

Passive Abilities:

Master Angler

Treasure Hunter

There is a 6.12% to 25% chance for the item pulled to be randomly enchanted. The strength/level of enchantment and odds of the said item being enchanted depends on the Fishing level and Treasure Hunter Tier.

Magic Hunter

Magic hunter is the probability of fishing an enchanted treasure with the probability of an enchanted item appearing, starting at 6.67% (rank ⅕) at level 1-199, and increasing by 6.67% per 200 Fishing levels. At level 800, the probability caps at a maximum of 33.3% (rank 5/5).

Sometimes the message “You feel a touch of magic in this cast.” will appear to indicate the skill activating.


From fishing level 150 onwards, the player will be able to shake items loose from mobs by hooking them with the fishing pole.

Shake can be used repeatedly for a large number of items depending on the remaining health of the mob (Fishing Rod deals 1 damage to mobs). For instance, a Skeleton at full health can drop up to 37 arrows before they die.

Alchemy is about brewing potions. It provides a speed increase in the potion brew time, as well as the addition of new (previously) unobtainable potions.

Passive Abilities:


Catalysis speeds of the brewing process, with a max speed of 4x at level 1000. This ability is unlocked at level 100 by default.


Concoctions allow the brewing of more potions with custom ingredients. Which special ingredients are unlocked is determined by your Rank. There are 8 ranks to unlock.

mcMMO Alchemy

Important things to note about these custom recipes:

  • The custom potions created only by unlockable recipes will always be colored red like an instant health potion, regardless of the effects.
  • The custom potions created only by unlockable recipes cannot be empowered using glowstone or Redstone dust.
  • Attempting to brew gunpowder or Dragon’s Breath into the custom potions created only by unlockable recipes will result in an Uncraftable Splash or Lingering potion, respectively. This potion has no effect. However, using gunpowder or Dragon’s Breath on an awkward potion and then adding the custom ingredient last will result in a Splash or Lingering potion of the proper effect, respectively.
  • Ingredients that have been named in an anvil can NOT be used in Alchemy’s custom recipes, and will not receive the Catalysis brewing speed boost. (i.e. a Slimeball named “Fred” can NOT make a dull potion, and a Fermented Spider Eye named “RIP George” will brew at regular speed regardless of the brewer’s Alchemy skill.)

Vanilla XP Boost

The Vanilla XP Boost ability is passive, like all Smelting abilities are, that grants more experience from a furnace when you smelt materials or ores such as iron ore, oak logs, and sand.
