    Long ago in 2014, pre-mm-2.0, I spent a couple hundred hours making these few dozen particle
    skills and pestering Ash to add features to the plugin to support them. I thought they were lost
    after MythicMobs stopped using the bukkit dev forums for everything as I had used the forums internal pastebin system to save and distribute everything. While digging through an old laptop recently I found the original pre-2.0 skill files I had kept on my server(I had updated them to post mm-2.0 format before I left). So, I'll be slowly converting them from pre-2.0 format and releasing them once again.

    This will likely take awhile as the files are a huge mess so check the change log every now and then to see what has been done recently. For now, I'll just be updating the skills to current format and making sure they parse correctly, so they may be a bit primitive and they could cause EXTREME fps lag.(Particles used to be a lot less laggy) :( After I've finished updating them all I'll work on optimizing them and adding new effects that have been added in recent years. Some things I've already changed though such as using armor stands instead of "stunned" invisible mobs. (Things like noAI and armor stands didn't exist)

    Please do not use these on a live server yet, they may cause severe problems.

    Skills:
    Add this configuration to your mobs folder. It contains all of the utility mobs used for targeting. Alternatively if you download the zip file instead it will contain everything.

    Version 2 skills:
    These REQUIRE MythicMobsExtension and MythicMobs premium build 2387 or later.

    These are things that I'm just toying around with on my test server. Mostly a ton of conditions being added to the skills to employ various effects and grant weaknesses/resistances to certain skills.

    Power ups and power drops all stack.
    Example: conditions for a 50% power up and a 15% power drop are met the resulting power up would be 35%

    Changes from original skill:
    Power ups: +50% damage in rain, +50% damage in thunderstorm, +100% damage if target is in water

    Power drops: -15% damage for each piece of leather armor target is wearing

    New effects: Damages players armor, stuns target

    All 3 skills: https://pastebin.com/jCJUJswD
