Skill Effects

Skill Effects (or effect mechanics) are a special type of mechanic specifically designed to create special effects. These are called just like any other skill mechanic in your mob's Skill List, or you can add them to your own skills and even combine them.

Most effects are able to target both Entities and Locations. You control what your effect targets using a Targeter.


A lot of effects don't have any options. To call them, you just call the skill effect:name

- effect:flames @target
- effect:lightning @self
- effect:ender @PlayersInRadius{r=20}
