 ¬ Thaumcraft 2 Recipe List



!! Please keep in mind that this is NOT the most up-to-date version of the Thaumcraft mod !!

Thaumcraft 2 adds a large variety of new and very unique gameplay mechanics, machines, creatures and items to the game. The mod's theme is -as the title suggests- the subject of magic, in the form of thaumaturgy. You can extract magical energy in the form of liquid, so-called "vis" out of items, and use to create new, powerful equipment.

Not all items are instantly available, however. Leaving some crafting ingredients and basic equipment aside, most power items and tools actually have to be researched using the Quaesitum before they can be used. Thus, all items from the four knowledge trees (Lost, Forbidden, Tainted and Eldritch) have to be researched before they can be crafted or created in an infusion table.

Use the key combination "CTRL + F" (on Mac: "CMD + F") to search for specific items with your browser's text search function.

1.1. Basic Thaumic Equipment: Crafting Recipes



The items below can be created without any preliminary research.

NameRecipeDescription
Crucible
Crafting a Crucible should be your very first -and also most important- step into the wondrous world of thaumaturgy. You can use any kind of mineable crystal for the crafting recipe.

This most basic crucible has a standard vis conversion rate of 50%, which means that 50% of the item's value get converted into vis, while the remaining 50% get converted into Taint. You can research more efficient crucibles with a better Vis-Taint conversion rate using the Quaesitum. You can also attach several Arcane Bellow to the crucible in order to improve its Vis-to-Taint conversion rate. At times, you will need liquid Taint, and using the standard crucible is the fastest way of getting it.
Vis Conduit
8
Conduits allow you to transport liquid vis from a source (like a crucible or a condenser) to a thaumic device that requires that vis. It transports both liquid vis and liquid taint and it is possible that the conduits get clogged up with taint. The darker the shade of the purple liquid in the conduit the more tainted it is.

You also need it to create a variety of thaumic devices, including the Vis Condenser, the Vis Filter and the Thaumic Enchanter.
Vis Valve
This special conduit works exactly like a normal conduit, except it can be clicked to stop vis from flowing through it. It can also be opened and closed with a redstone signal.
Vis Storage Tank
This glass tank is strengthened with Enchanted Wood, allowing it to store vast amounts of vis or taint. You merely need to connect it to a conduit or vis source. Keep in mind, however, that basic vis tanks are not well suited to storing large amounts of taint for long periods. Taint tends to corrupt and degrade the structure of the tanks, causing them to eventually explode. This will immediately release all its contents directly taint into the atmosphere, and it will also taint all blocks in a 5x5x5 radius.
Arcane Bellows
The Arcane Bellows does not have a function of its own - its main use is to grant bonuses to Crucibles and Arcane Furnaces, or to increase the vis pressure within certain blocks.

When placed adjacent to a Crucible the bellows boosts the rate at which it can smelt items and also slightly improves the efficiency of the crucible, allowing it to produce more Vis and less Taint for each item smelted. When placed adjacent to an Arcane Furnace it boosts the speed at which the Furnace smelts ores and also increases its chance to produce multipe smelting results. Bellows connected to an Arcane Furnace that is currently below a Crucible will effectively boost both devices.

Bellows can be connected to Vis Tanks or Vis Pumps. Each bellows increases the suction in these blocks by 10 TCB. Bellows can be connected directly to conduits as well to increase the suction in that section, but multiple bellows will not increase the suction in a single conduit beyond 10 TCB.
Vis Pump
This device sets up a constant flow of vis or taint in a series of conduits. Suction is only applied from the front of the device (the end with the pumping animation). It has a small internal store for any vis or taint it has pumped. To extract vis from this store you need to connect conduits to its back which in turn needs to connected to some suction causing device. You can use a series of pumps to move vis over large distances.

Vis Pumps apply a suction of 20 TCB from their front, though this can be increased by connecting bellows next to them. The pumps orientation can be changed with Tinkering Tools.
Thaumic Infuser
The Thaumic Infuser is one of the most important thaumic devices you will need to build. Most of the objects and items created in Thaumcraft can only be crafted in this device. The Infuser uses pure liquid vis supplied by Vis Conduits to enchant various items and fuse them into a new object with magical properties.
Quaesitum
Not all objects are available immediately. You need to research them using the Quaesitum. Like an enchanting table, this block works better when surrounded by bookcases or Brain-in-a-Jars.
Vis Condenser
The Vis Condenser provides another way of gaining Vis. By placing any kind of vis crystal in the slot on the left the condenser uses it as a catalyst to slowly draw pure vis from the aura. This has the unfortunate side effect of corrupting the crystal however and after some time it will turn into a tainted crystal. Unlike the crucible however, the condenser produces 100% pure, untainted vis.

The speed at which the Condenser draws vis from the atmosphere is determined by the current phase of the moon. The fuller the moon is, the faster the condenser works.

It is possible to place condensers next to each other and they distribute their vis amongst each other so you don't have to connect them all to conduits.
Vis Filter
The Vis Filter is a specialized conduit that slowly draws out any tainted vis flowing through it and pumps it directly into the atmosphere.
Arcane Bore
The Arcane Bore allows one to mine vast quantities of material in a relatively short time, however, it is a bit expensive to operate. You need an Arcane Focus to determine its range and width.

It uses Arcane Singularities as fuel.
Arcane Focus
The Arcane Focus determines the range and the width of the Arcane Bore's mining area. There are several different types of Foci, but the others have to be researched with Quaesitum before they can be crafted. The magical mining rays protuding from the Arcane Bore will always take the color of the Focus the Bore is equipped with.
A regular Arcane Focus has average range (39 blocks), small spread (3 x 3 blocks) and regular mining speed (about 3 blocks per second).
Arcane Tinkering Tool
The Arcane Tinkering Tool can be used to retrieve unsmelted materials from crucibles, and to chance the orientation of certain blocks like the Arcane Bore or the Vis Pump.

1.2. Basic Thaumic Equipment: Infusion Recipes



The equipment below can be created without any preliminary research.

NameRecipeDescription
Arcane Furnace
20
The Arcane Furnace is an improved alchemical furnace that has multiple input and output slots, allowing one to qeue up a lot of material to be smelted. It is also slightly faster than a regular furnace and slightly more efficient at burning fuel. Fuel is only used while the furnace is in operation. If there are no available items to be smelted the current heat level is maintained and the fuel is not consumed until new items enter the input inventory.

An Arcane Furnace can also be connected to a steady supply of vis which will (1) greatly improve fuel efficiency and duration, (2) further increase smelting speed and (3) give the furnace a small chance of doubling the smelting output each cycle.
Vis Detector
50
The Vis Detector allows you to detect the presence of pure Vis in thaumic devices. Rightclick on any type of thaumic device or conduit, and will show you how much pure vis it contains.

While the Vis Detector is in your inventory or hotbar it will also display a bar in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. This indicates how much Aura there is in your current chunk. The sphere below the bar will glow if the aura has the potential to increase due to the presence of unharvested Vis Crystals or similar things. As rule of thumb, each segment of the bar in the lower corner indicates 2000 units of vis in the current chunk.
Taint Detector
50
The Taint Detector serves a similar function to the Vis detector. When used to click on thaumic devices or conduits, it will give you an indication of how much Taint they contain.

While in your inventory, it displays a Taint bar at the lower right that works similar to the bar from the Vis Detector. Three segments of Taint and a low level of Aura can convert the chunk in a Taint-infected Zone.
Thaumometer
50
The Thaumometer combines the functionalities of the Vis Detector and the Taint Detector.

When used to click on thaumic devices or conduits it will give an indication of both their Vis and Taint content, as well as the capacity of the device.

1.3. Basic Thaumic Equipment: Power Items



The power items below can be created without any preliminary research.

NameRecipeDescription
Boots of Striding
50
The Boots of Striding is a magic footwear that has the same durability as leather boots but comes with two added bonuses: increased jump height and faster running speed. The boots also reduce falling damage by half but food will be consumed at a slightly faster rate when you run.
Portable Hole
50
The Portable Hole is a very handy magical tool that is able to temporarily displace blocks in a straight line, thus creating a small corridor which you can go through. Once the portable hole is used on a wall, it will create a shimmering corridor that is 2 blocks high and 1 block wide and that emits the same particle effects as Endermen and a Nether Portal. It has a total reach of 31 blocks.

If used on a floor or a ceiling, it will create a 1x1 hole. It has a limited number uses and will eventually wear down, but you can repair it using a Thaumic Restorer. The Portable Hole can be enchanted with either the Self Repair Enchantment or the Unbreakable Enchantment, which prolongs its durability.
Wand of Equal Trade
75
The Wand of Equal Trade can be used to turn one block into another, provided you have enough of the target block in your inventory. It gets damaged when being used, but you can repair it with a Thaumic Restorer.
Wand of Fire
75
Your very own magical flamethrower! Activating the wand of fire will unleash a steady stream of fire that damages mobs and lights them on fire. If the mobs are edible (like cows, pigs or chickens), their meat automatically gets cooked, too! Neat! The wand of fire loses durability upon usage, but you can repair it with a Thaumic Restorer.
Wand of Lightning
75
When activated, the wand of lightning shoots out a lightning bolt that will always strike where you are pointing at with your cursor. It has a very long range, and the bolt hits its target instantly, doing up to five damage points. It is especially suited for hunting down Ghasts in the Nether. The wand of lightning loses durability upon usage, but you can repair it with a Thaumic Restorer.
Wand of Water
75
The wand of water can hydrate tilled soil, turn sand into dirt, freeze water and create short-lived (non-source) water blocks. It loses durability upon usage, but you can repair it with a Thaumic Restorer.

2. Thaumic Raw Materials



The raw materials below can be created without any preliminary research.

NameRecipeDescription
Enchanted Wood
4
15
5
15
Infusing normal wood with a Vis Crystal creates Enchanted Wood, which is a component for many different Thaumic tools and devices.

Using Greatwood logs in the infusion process is slightly more efficient than using normal wood and results in 5 enchanted wood instead of 4.
Enchanted Silverwood
15
Infusing silverwood with a Vis Crystal yields Enchanted Silverwood, which is a rare component for certain Thaumic devices.
Alumentum
9
Infusing Redstone Dust with coal yields Alumentum, which functions as fuel in furnaces, where it burns ten times longer than regular coal, and it can also be used to construct Vis Filters.
Nitor
10
Fusing Redstone Dust and Glowstone Dust yields Nitor, an endless flame that can be placed as a light source. It is one of the main ingredients in the creation of Runic Essences.

In addition to the above, it seems to contain more Vis than went into its creation.
Arcane Singularity
10
Infusing Alumentum and Nitor yields an Arcane Singularity, which can be used as fuel for the Arcane Bore. If you throw it, it will create a rift in the fabric of reality that sucks in all neighboring blocks and living things. In addition to that, it will severely mess up both the atmospheric Aura and Taint ratings.

The Arcane Singularity is the main ingredient for the Stabilized Singularity Upgrade.
Enchanted Fabric
25
Fusing together String, any kind of wool, and any type of vis crystal yields Enchanted Fabric, which is used for artifacts like the Portable Hole and the Flying Carpet.
Animated Piston
50
Fusing together a vaporous crystal, a piston and a gold ingot yields the Animated Piston, which is used as an ingredient for the creation of Thaumic machines like the Thaumic Duplicator or the Arcane Bore. It does not have any other functions.
Thaumium Ingot
5
5
5
5
Thaumium is created by infusing metals with most kinds of vis crystals (excluding Tainted and Depleted Crystals). If you have some of the Forge mods like RedPower, IndustrialCraft or Forestry installed, you can also infuse Bronze, Brass or Silver to gain Thaumium.

Thaumium can be used to create armor or tools just like with the vanilla recipes. Thaumium tools or armor lie about halfway between iron and diamond in terms of efficiency, durability and strength.

Where Thaumium really develops its full potential, however, is when tools or armor created with it are being enchanted with a Thaumic Enchanter or an Occultic Enchanter. Those items can retain both more and stronger enchantments.
Extract of Purest Magic
250
The extract of purest magic embodies the purest essence of a vis crystal. It is needed to charge an Eldritch Keystone and turn it into a Eldritch Keystone: Tlhulth, and you also need it to create a Thaumic Enchanter and an Occultic Enchanter.
Extract of Foulest Taint
250
The extract of foulest magic embodies the foul essence of a vis crystal. You need it to create the Charm of Souls.
Extract of Warmest Fire
250
The extract of warmest fire embodies the fiery essence of a fiery crystal. You need it to create the Brazier of Souls and the Elemental Crusher.
Extract of Deepest Earth
250
The extract of deepest earth embodies the pure essence of an earthen crystal. It is one of the components needed to create the the Elemental Crusher.
Extract of Lightest Air
250
The extract of lightest air embodies the airy essence of a vaporous crystal. You need it to charge an Inert Carpet in order to make it fly, and it is also necessary for the creation of the Elemental Cutter.
Extract of Coolest Water
250
The extract of coolest water embodies the very essence of an aqueous crystal. You need it to create the Elemental Cutter.
Cinderpearl Pod
The Cinderpearl is a strange flower that gives off a faint light and that only grows in desert biomes. Upon plucking, you get one cinderpearl pod, which you can use to create a Charm of Cleansing.

Alternatively, you can put it into your crafting grid and convert it into Blaze Powder, which is one of the ingredient needed for the creation of Dawnstones.
Cinnabar Ore / Quicksilver
Cinnabar Ore is a rather rare ore that does not occur in clusters and that can be found underground. You can smelt it to obtain Quicksilver, which is one of the main ingredients for the production of Quicksilver Cores and Void Ingots.

Quicksilver can duplicated in the Thaumic Duplicator, and it is also sometimes dropped from decaying Silverwood leaves.
Soul Fragment
40
20
Soul Fragments are used by many other thaumic devices that require a measure of sentience or the flickering remnants of living beings to function.

You can create them manually in a Dark Infuser with the infusion recipe to the left, but collecting them with a Charm of Souls or a weapon with the Soulstealer Enchantment is much more efficient.

3. Seals



The recipes below provide you with everything you need to create a variety of thaumic seal combinations.

NameRecipeDescription
Arcane Seal
25
Arcane Seals are magical symbols that can be placed on most surfaces. Once placed, you can attach up to three Runic Essences on it in order to have it perform certain magical effects.
Runic Essence: Magic
2
15
The Runic Essence: Magic deals with life and the manipulation of magical energy. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Runic Essence: Air
2
15
The Runic Essence: Air This essence deals with movement, lightning and the wind. If used as a secondary or tertiary essence, it usually speeds up the effect. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Runic Essence: Water
2
15
The Runic Essence: Water deals deals with improvement, water and order. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Runic Essence: Earth
2
15
The Runic Essence: Earth deals with plant growth, earth and strength. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Runic Essence: Fire
2
15
The Runic Essence: Fire deals with destruction, flames and energy. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Runic Essence: Dark
2
15
The Runic Essence: Dark is negative counterpart of the runic essence: magic. It deals with death, destruction, negativity and the perversion of magical energy. It can be combined with other runic essences to form different seal combinations, each of which has a certain magical effect. Once placed, runic essences can only be removed with a Wand of Reversal.
Crystal Ball
The The Crystal Ball allows you to see what a specific seal combination does. You can also see which seals do not have any magical effect at all.

In addition to that, it also stores a record of all the seals you have discovered so far.

4.1. Armor: Thaumium Armor



The Thaumium armor pieces below can be crafted without having to research their specific crafting recipe. All individual pieces of the armor set provide as much protection as the respective iron armor pieces, however, they are a bit more durable and much better suited for enchanting. Not only can they hold the maximum number of enchantments, but they can also get stronger and better enchantments than any other type of armor.

So if you want to take full advantage of the Thaumium Armor, you should try to get some good enchantments using a Thaumic Enchanter or an Occultic Enchanter, the last of which enables you to pick and choose the enchantments you like.

NameRecipeDescription
Thaumium Helm
Provides 1 armor point.
Thaumium Chestplate
Provides 3 armor points.
Thaumium Leggings
Provides 2.5 armor points.
Thaumium Boots
Provide 1 armor point.

4.2. Armor: Void Armor



The Void Armor set is very durable armor set that provides as much protection as diamond armor. However, it is a bit more durable, and it can also hold better enchantments, but not as much as Thaumium armor.

If you want to craft Void Armor, you either need to research the theory for the Void Ingot and the Dark Infuser in order to produce it yourself, or you have to use the void ingots you can find in the chests below an Eldritch Monolith.

NameRecipeDescription
Void Metal Helm
Provides 1.5 armor points.
Void Metal Chestplate
Provides 4 armor points.
Void Metal Leggings
Provides 3 armor points.
Void Metal Boots
Provide 1.5 armor points.

5. Lost Knowledge



Before you can create the items below, you need to research their corresponding theory using the Quaesitum.

NameRecipeDescription
1. Arcane Focus: Air
10
This arcane focus has medium range (39 blocks), medium spread (5 x 5 blocks) and improved mining speed (about 9 blocks per second). Due to this improved speed, its energy consumption rate is a bit higher than the other foci.
2. Arcane Focus: Earth
10
This arcane focus has medium range (39 blocks), wide spread (9 x 9 block) and regular mining speed (about 3 blocks per second).
3. Arcane Focus: Fire
10
This arcane focus has medium range (39 blocks), medium spread (5 x5 blocks) and regular mining speed (about 3 blocks per second). As opposed to the other foci, however, it consumes low value items to increase the fuel efficiency of the bore, thus requiring much less Arcane Singularities to run.

This focus needs only one singularity to start, and once it is running, all cobblestone, sand, dirt and gravel is transformed into energy to power the bore. You can then throw cobblestone in front of it to power the bore if you are mining a zone without any of the aforementioned common blocks - for example if you are cleaning up a Taint-infected zone, or if you are lumbering a forest.
4. Arcane Focus: Water
10
This arcane focus has long range (79 blocks), medium spread (5 x5 blocks) and regular mining speed (about 3 blocks per second). When deployed at water level (block height 64), it can mine straight down to bedrock.
5. Axe of the Stream
When used on any kind of tree or structure made out of wood logs, wooden planks, wooden stairs or any other wood-related blocks, the Axe of the Stream destroys all adjacent blocks of the same type. Each block destroyed this way will be automatically teleported into your inventory, and the durability of the Axe of the Stream will be diminished accordingly. It will, however, stop mining if this would destroy the axe. You can suppress this effect by crouching while mining.

By pressing and holding rightclick while having the Axe of the Stream equipped, nearby items will be pulled towards you and emit a faint blue glow. The axe can be repaired with a Thaumic Restorer.
6. Boots of the Meteor
100
The Boots of the Meteor allow their wearer to run at an incredibly fast speed and to make very large jumps. They also reduce falling damage significantly. If you are crouching while jumping, you will only jump to regular height of one block.

If you press the crouch button while you are in the air, you will hurl yourself to the ground with thunderous force, creating a giant, fiery explosion that will push away and damage surrounding mobs, and also burn away any grass blocks in the vicinity (turning them into dirt blocks).
7. Charm of Cleansing
100
The charm of cleansing cures its wearer from harmful effects like poison and douses him if he is on fire. This uses up the durability of the charm, so it can get worn out and destroyed if you are not careful. It can be repaired in a Thaumic Restorer.

Keep in mind that the charm does not protect from direct fire damage; if you fall into lava, you will still die.
8. Charm of Life
150
The charm of life will continually regenerate its wearer's health, as long as it is kept in his inventory. This effect uses up the durability of the charm, so it can get worn out and destroyed if you are not careful. It can be repaired in a Thaumic Restorer.
9. Charm of Vigor
75
The charm of vigor will protect you from drowning and it will also continually keep you fed as long as you have it with you in your inventory. This effect uses up the durability of the charm, so it can get worn out and destroyed if you are not careful. It can be repaired in a Thaumic Restorer.
10. Collected Wisdom
100
This upgrade can be applied to the Thaumic Enchanter and the Occultic Enchanter. It allows the enchanters to impart one additional enchantment as well as higher enchantment levels. Combine with an full setup of Brain-in-a-Jars for maximum efficiency.
11. Concentrated Vis
140
Using a Thaumic Infuser and a regular vis crystal, you can bottle up concentrated vis. If you throw a bottle on the ground, its content will evaporate directly into the atmosphere.

This is very useful if you want to manually increase the Aura rating of a chunk, for example after cleaning up a Taint-infected zone, or if you want to grow Greatwood Trees (for which you need an Aura rating of at least 7000) from Greatwood Saplings.
12. Crucible of Eyes
25
The Crucible of Eyes is an improvement of the regular crucible with a slightly improved vis conversion rate of 60% Vis to 40% Taint.

In addition to that, you can attach several Arcane Bellow to the crucible in order to improve its Vis-to-Taint conversion rate.
13. Crystalline Bell
150
With the Crystalline Bell, you can take single Vis Crystal shards out of a crystal cluster one at a time. This will not harm the crystal cluster or have an effect on local the Aura/Taint rating. If you leave at least one crystal shard of the cluster intact, the other shards will grow back in time (depending on a variety of factors, which include Aura charge and atmospheric aura value).

This makes it one of the most important tools of an aspiring thaumaturge, and you should always have one with when you leave your base for mining. You can also craft your vis crystals into Vis Ore, which you can then plant on most surfaces in order to create a crystal farm. Once the crystals have grown enough shards, you can harvest them using the Crystalline Bell.
14. Dawnstone
10
The Dawnstone is a one-use artifact that can speed up the movement of the sun and the moon. When broken after noon, it speeds up the passage of time until the next dawn comes to pass (hence its name). Very useful if you are far away from home and low on health and food supplies.
15. Elemental Crusher
500
The Elemental Crusher combines the powers and abilities of the Void Crusher, the Shovel of Renewal, and the Pickaxe of the Core, making it a very fast, versatile and powerful all-round mining tool.

When mining any block for which the pickaxe would be the fastest mining tool, the Elemental Crusher will also remove all blocks of the same type surrounding it in a radius of 3 x 3 x 3 blocks. This makes it very easy to clear out large areas fast, or to create a tunnel with a width and heighth of three blocks each. You can suppress this effect by crouching while mining.

If you perform a rightclick with the Elemental Crusher equipped, a small red sprite will appear right next to you. The sprite will then try to head off into the direction where the most valuable resources are located (usually a vis crystal). Once it reaches the resources, it will burst into a spark of light while making a tingling sound.

The Elemental Crusher can be enchanted and repaired like most other Thaumcraft tools. If you have access to an Occultic Enchanter, you should seriously consider imparting a Self-Repair Enchantment on it.
16. Elemental Cutter
500
The Elemental Cutter combines the powers and abilities of the Void Cutter, the Axe of the Stream and the Sword of the Zephyr, making it a powerful weapon against larger groups of foes and a versatile tool for mining all wood-related blocks.

When mining any wood-related block like wooden planks or wooden stairs, the Elemental Cutter will destroy all adjacent blocks of the same type. Each block destroyed this way will be automatically teleported into your inventory, and the durability of the Elemental Cutter will be diminished accordingly. It will, however, stop mining if this would destroy the axe. You can suppress this effect by crouching while mining.

By pressing and holding rightclick while having the Elemental Cutter equipped, nearby items and creatures will be pulled towards you and emit a faint blue glow while doing so. If you hit an enemy that is standing next to one or several other enemies, a chain lightning will jump over to the other enemies, and all will take damage simultaneously. If you use those two abilities consecutively, you can control a very large crowd of enemies and even engage in melee combat with crystal wisps!

The Elemental Cutter can be enchanted and repaired like most other Thaumcraft tools. If you have access to an Occultic Enchanter, you should seriously consider imparting a Self-Repair Enchantment on it, since the wood-cutting power can put quite a large strain on its durability.
17. Everfull Urn
25
A small fountain of pure water always flows from the top of this urn, making it a perfect water source to fill your buckets, bottles or other liquid containers. However, each time you fill from it, it releases a tiny taint charge of about 1%.
18. Goggles of Revealing
The Goggles of Revealing allow its wearer to see the Taint and Aura values in his environment. Just like the Thaumometer, they display an Aura bar and a Taint bar at the lower right. When you hover over a Thaumcraft-related item like a Vis storage Tank or a conduit, they will show the present levels of Vis and Taint as absolute values as well as the percentage of the full capacity.

They also shows the Vis/Taint pressure, which is measured in "TCB" (Thaums per cubic block). In addition that, in the lower left of the screen, the Goggles of Revealing also show the absolute values of Vis and Taint that are currently present in the atmosphere as well as the Vis and Taint charge levels of the chunk the wearer is in.

The goggles also show which kind of vis crystals you have to put into the slots of an Eldritch Monolith in order to unlock the secret chamber(s) below.
19. Hoe of the Mystic
The Hoe of the Mystic is capable of tilling a large field all at once. This works best if you have already limited the field you need tilled with a demarkation line of cobblestone or wooden planks. Hold the crouch button to suppress the mass tilling effect.
20. Inert Carpet
300
This magical carpet will enable you to fly through the heavens as if you had wings. The initial carpet will be useless and you need to infuse it with an Extract of Lightest Air before it is actually able to fly.

You can use the carpet by rightclicking on it. Once you are on the carpet, you can move it using your mouse and your regular movement keys. The jump key lets you rise up, the crouch key lets you hover down. A gauge at the top of your Minecraft window indicates the charge level of your carpet. Once the charge is depleted, you have to infuse it with yet another Extract of Lightest Air.
21. Pickaxe of the Core
The Pickaxe of the Core glows with a barely contained inner heat that instantly smelts everything it mines. You can suppress this ability by pressing the crouch key while mining.

If you perform a rightclick with the Axe of the Core equipped, a small red sprite will appear right next to you. The sprite will then try to head off into the direction where the most valuable resources are located (usually a vis crystal). Once it reaches the resources, it will burst into a spark of light while making a tingling sound.
22. Potency Enchantment Once researched, you can have your tools, weapons and power items enchanted with the Potency Enchantment using either a Thaumic Enchanter or an Occultic Enchanter.

It enhances the effect of certain magical devices like wands. If such an item is enchanted with the Potency Enchantment, it boosts things like damage, range, the area of effect or the number of blocks affected. The exact attributes it boosts vary from item to item.
23. Quicksilver Core
50
The Quicksilver Upgrade increases the speed of the thaumic devices it is attached to, including the Vis Condenser, the Thaumic Crystalizer, the Thaumic Duplicator, the Thaumic Generator and the Thaumic Restorer.

If used on a Vis Condenser in conjunction with a Concentrated Evil upgrade, it can speed up a Taint-cleaning operation significantly.
24. Relic Hunter Enchantment This is a weapon enchantment that imbues a small chance of revealing an artifact when you slay a foe with the enchanted weapon. Higher levels of the enchantment increase both the occurance and quality of the artifacts found.

It seems that you do not get any artifacts from peaceful animals, Testificates, tamed wolves or tamed ocelots/cats.
25. Self Repair Enchantment The Self Repair Enchantment is one of the most useful enchantments for your tools, weapons, armor and power items. It is also one of the few enchantments that be can imbued on almost any enchantable item. Items imbued with this enchantment will slowly repair themselves over time. The energy required for this self-repairing functionality is drawn directly out of the local aura.

Weapons, Armors and Tools imbued with this enchantment repair one durability point each 4 seconds and reduce the aura rating in the current chunk by 1 unit.

You cannot have the Self Repair Enchanment and the Unbreaking Enchanment in the same item at the same time.
26. Seven League Boots
75
The Seven League Boots provide you with even more increased jump height and faster running speed than the Boots of Striding. They also reduce falling damage by half but food will be consumed at a slightly faster rate when you run. You can suppress the higher jumping height by pressing the crouch button.
27. Shovel of Renewal
The Shovel of Renewal is capable of removing large patches (3 x 3 x 1 = nine blocks) of earth, gravel sand at once. You can suppress this ability by pressing the crouch button.

The shovel is also extremely effective at removing Taint-effected ground. It can also make plants grow faster and make grass and flower appear on green grass (just like Bone Meal).
28. Stabilized Singularity
50
The Stabilized Singularity Upgrade increases the efficiency of thaumic devices it is attached to. Vis Condensers draw more Vis or Taint per cycle, and vis-using devices like the Thaumic Restorerneed less vis to perform their work.
29. Sword of the Zephyr
When you hit an enemy with the Sword of the Zephyr, a chain lightning will jump over to all other enemies in the vicinity of one block.

When you hit rightclick, you will receive a powerfull wind boost that will propell you over twenty blocks into the direction you are looking. If you time those boosts just right, you can use them to fly over short short distances. Should you have an enemy in your crosshair, the enemy will be propelled towards you instead. Also, as long as you are holding the sword, you do not take any falling damage.
30. Thaumic Crystalizer
The Thaumic Crystalizer can re-energize Depleted crystals by imbuing them with liquid vis. The type of crystals produced is semi-random, and in part influenced by the biome the Thaumic Crystalizer is placed in. One re-infusion uses up a total of 30 liquid vis.

You can also use the Thaumic Crystalizer to transform existing crystals into crystals of other types, for example to transform a tainted crystal into a fiery crystal.

If you apply a Concentrated Evil upgrade to the crystalizer, it will also be able to produce tainted crystals with a slightly higher chance of about 30%. A Quicksilver Core will speed up the operating speed of the device, and a Stabilized Singularity upgrade will reduce its vis consumption rate.
31. Thaumic Duplicator
The Thaumic Duplicator duplicates items using liquid vis. The duplication process is rather costly, however, since the duplication of an item costs five times more than its inherent vis value. You can only copy items that are designated as "common" in Minecraft. Those items can be recognized by their white tooltip text (when you hover over them with your cursor). Most Thaumcraft items are magical by nature (which you can discern by the blue or yellow tooltip text) and cannot be copied.

The Thaumic Duplicator has exactly one upgrade slot, and since duplicating uses an awfully huge amount of liquid vis, the best choice would be a Stabilized Singularity upgrade, which reduces the vis consumption rate.
32. Thaumic Enchanter
20
The Thaumic Enchanter works like a regular enchantment table, except that it uses liquid vis instead of experience orbs. Similar to the regular enchantment table, you can get more powerful enchantments if you surround it with bookshelves or Brain-in-a-jars.

It can be upgraded with the Collected Wisdom upgrade, which will enable it to impart more enchantments.
33. Thaumic Generator
The Thaumic Generator can convert liquid vis into several different kinds of energy used by the mods Redpower, BuildCraft and Industrial Craft.

If used to provide power for Industrial Craft machines, it generates up to 15 EU per tick.

If used to power BuildCraft machines, it can generate up to 2 MJ per tickm which is the equivalent of two steam engines or one combustion engine running on oil. As opposed to the BC machines, however, the thaumic generator does not need cooling and cannot overheat.

If used to power RedPower machines it generates up to 8 amps of energy (about the same as four solar panels).
34. Thaumic Restorer
The Thaumic Restorer repairs your weapons, tools, armor and power items using liquid vis, which makes it one of the most essential pieces of thaumic machinery.

It has a total of six repair slots. Items in those repair slots will slowly have their durability restored, and will be moved into the inventory to the right once they are completely repaired. All items are being repaired, regardless whether they are enchanted or not. You can also use it to repair power items like charms or Portable Holes.

The Thaumic Restorer has one slot for upgrades. You can put a Stabilized Singularity on it if you want to minimize its vis consumption, or can put a Quicksilver Core on it in order to make it repair faster.
35. Thaumium Crucible
50
The Thaumium Crucible is an improvement of the Crucible of Eyes with an even more improved vis conversion rate of 70% Vis to 30% Taint.

You can improve its Vis-to-Taint conversion rate even further if you attach several Arcane Bellows to it.
36. Traveling Trunk
The Traveling Trunk is a magical luggage with a basic inventory of 27 inventory slots that will follow you, hold your stuff and fight your enemies. Keep in mind that it can get hurt by hostile mobs or the environment. If you keep food in its inventory, it can heal itself. You can order it to either stay in one place or follow you around. If you are too far away from the trunk, it will teleport itself to you.

The Traveling Trunk can be enhanced with up to two upgrades:
1) The Quicksilver Core upgrade makes it move a lot faster.
2) The Stabilized Singularity upgrade enables it to suck up items.
3) The Harnessed Rage upgrade makes it attack hostile NPCs.
4) The Contained Emptiness upgrade increases its inventory by a further row to a total of 36 inventory slots.

You can revert it back to its item status by rightclicking it with a Wand of Reversal.
37. Wand of Reversal
50
You can use the Wand of Reversal to retrieve upgrades from thaumic devices, runic essences from arcane Seals, and to revert traveling trunks into their original collectible item status.

6. Forbidden Knowledge



Before you can create the items below, you need to research their corresponding theory using the Quaesitum.

NameRecipeDescription
1. Bow of Bone
The Bow of Bone fires significantly faster than its regular counterpart, however, it cannot hold a charge. It you hold rightclick, it will continously fire arrows at a rate of about two arrows per second. The arrows leave a trail of black fog, but this does not have any effect whatsoever.

If you kill an enemy with arrows shot from the Bow of Bone, there is a slight chance that those enemies will rise as friendly skeleton warriors, just like the ones raised with the Wand of Bone. Those skeletons will disappear after a short while.
2. Brain-in-a-Jar
16
8
The theory for the Brain-in-a-Jar can only be researched when using Zombie Brains as the primary research item in the Quaesitum.

It serves the same function as bookcases for the regular Enchantment Table as well as for the Thaumic Enchanter and the Occultic Enchanter, but in addition that, it also improves the speed of all those devices. If used to boost a Quaesitum, it increases the research speed and slightly reduces the probability of losing an item while doing research on it.
3. Brazier of Souls
The Brazier of Souls burns with a black flame which draws atmospheric Taint and Vis from the neighboring chunks and concentrates it in the chunk it is placed in, thus raising the local vis and taint levels. It uses Soul Fragments as fuel, at a rate of one soul fragment every three or four minutes.
4. Charm of Souls
100
50
The Charm of Souls absorbs experience orbs and converts them into Soul Fragments. If you collect a soul fragment while having the Charm of Souls in your inventory, it will evaporate in a small black puff, and the charge level of the Charm of Souls will go up a bit. You need to absorb about 30 experience orbs to create one soul fragment.
5. Charm of the Dead
100
50
As long as you have the Charm of the Dead in you inventory, undead mobs like Zombies and Skeletons will not attack you and turn on other enemies instead. Take care not to overuse it though, since it will be destroyed if you use it too often.
6. Crucible of Souls
33
16
The Crucible of Souls consumes the life force of nearby creatures and converts it liquid taint and vis.

It does so by damaging all mobs in the vicinity of a cubic area of 5 x 5 x 5 blocks. Each time it deals damage to a mob in this way, it generates 0.4 vis and 0.6 tainted vis. The crucible of souls can store up to 750 units of vis and taint internally before it stops working and doesn't damage mobs anymore.

Each time the crucible does damage it raises the taint ambient one percent.
7. Dark Infuser
The Dark Infuser works similar to the regular Thaumic Infuser except that it is used to create objects of a more malevolent nature. In addition to regular pure vis, it requires some taint.

As long as the dark infuser is active, it constantly adds two points charge to the atmospheric Taint of the chunk it is in (see Aura Mechanics for a comprehensive Aura charging overview). The taint is repeatedly charged as long as the infusion process is active.
8. Harnessed Rage
33
16
The Harnessed Rage upgrade can be attached to a Traveling Trunk in order to make it aggressive and attack hostile mobs.
9. Mask of Cruelty
The Mask of Cruelty jinxes any creature you lay your eye upon.

The exact effects may vary, but the gaze of one who wears the mask can cause pain, debilitating weakness, slow the subject down, poison it, or even kill it.
10. Occultic Enchanter
200
The Occultic Enchanter is a mighty fine improvement over the Thaumic Enchanter, as it lets you choose the enchantments you can imbue on an item. Once you have made your choice, confirm with a click on the red seal. The Occultic Enchanter will then start the enchantment process - which can last quite a long time, depending on how many and how powerful enchantments you have chosen.

Some enchantments (like "Self Repair" and "Unbreaking") are mutually exclusive and cannot be imbued at the same time. Also keep in mind that the rarer the material, the more and the better enchantments you can imbue on it. Because of their magical nature, Thaumium tools and armor are the best suited material. You can also enchant magical items like the Elemental Crusher or the Portable Hole.

You can enhance the Occultic Enchanter with a Collected Wisdom upgrade, which will enable it to imbue one additional enchantment.
11. Soul Stealer Enchantment Weapons with this enchantment cause the attacked creature's spirit to be trapped in the mortal realm, which is indicated by pitch-black sparkles surrounding it. If the creature is slain while being under this effect, there is a chance that its spirit will remain behind as a Soul Fragment. The chance of this occuring depends on the level of the enchantment and the lifeforce of the creature attacked.

It seems that this chance is not the same with all creatures. Small slimes and thaumic slimes, for example, do not seem to leave a soul fragment if attacked and killed with an enchanted weapon.
12. Vampiric Enchantment Weapons imbued with this enchantment have a chance to drain some of the life energy out of struck foes to heal your wounds. The higher the level of the enchant, the higher the chance for the effect to trigger.
13. Wand of Bone
50
25
The Wand of Bone summons a friendly skeleton warrior that will assist you in fighting enemies for a total of 60 seconds. Like regular undead, it starts to burn if exposed to sunlight. There is no limit to the number of skeletons you can summon, each use does decrease the durability of the Wand of Bone, however.

7. Tainted Knowledge



Before you can create the items below, you need to research their corresponding theory using the Quaesitum.

NameRecipeDescription
1. Advanced Vis Valve
The Advanced Vis Valve is a very useful improvement over the regular Vis Valve. It has three possible settings: Closed (dark), Vis-only (light blue), and Taint-only (dark purple).

Applying a redstone signal will either close or open the valve, but it does remember the state it was in.

You can use this to prevent taint from clogging up your pipes, and to ensure that your vis supplies contain pure, untainted vis.
2. Concentrated Evil
50
25
Applying the Concentrated Evil upgrade to a thaumic device will unlock Taint-related functions.

If applied to the Vis Condenser, it enables you to put tainted crystals in it with which you can suck taint out of the atmosphere. This is important if you want to prevent an area from getting infected with surface taint or if you want to clean up an already taint-infected area.

If applied to the Thaumic Crystalizer, you will be able to generate Tainted Crystals.
3. Concentrated Taint
6
3
If you throw a bottle of Concentrated Taint to the ground, it will infect all blocks within a radius of 7 x 7 x 7 blocks with Taint.

It does not affect the atmospheric Taint ratings, however, so if you use it in an area with rather low atmospheric Taint values, the infection will not spread to neighboring blocks, and the tainted blocks will slowly disappear as well. The best use of Concentrated Taint would be to infect a large ore vein, mine it with a Shovel of Renewal for congealed taint, and use that for further research in the Tainted Knowledge research tree.
4. Potion of Purity
25
The Potion of Purity is the opposite of Concentrated Taint.

When thrown to the ground, it restores all Taint-infected blocks to their former appearance within a radius of 5 x 5 x 5 blocks. In addition to that, it also provides an Aura charge of 25%, which helps to raise the atmospheric vis ratings. Keep in mind that the restored blocks can get infected again if the atmospheric Taint levels are too high.
5. Thaumium Reinforced Tank
75
The Thaumium Reinforced Tank is a significant improvement over the regular Vis Storage Tank. It can hold a total of 1000 Vis/Taint, which is twice as much the regular tank, and it is also much more resilient to the corroding abilities of liquid taint, which means: it won't blow up in your face if you pump it full of taint.
6. Totem of Dawn
50
The Totem of Dawn induces a positive Aura charge, which will raise the atmospheric vis ratings and also combat the spread of a surface taint infection. It prevents tainted blocks from forming within a radius of 5 x 5 x 5 blocks around the totem. If you place several totems of dawn in one chunk, their combined effects will prevent any taint from forming in the long term and will also slowly raise the atmospheric vis ratings. You can use this if you want to regenerate an area where you have used Vis Condensers.
7. Totem of Dusk
33
16
Being the opposite to the Totem of Dawn, the Totem of Dusk induces an atmospheric Taint charge, which will increase the atmospheric Taint ratings in the long run.

In addition to that, it also infects neighboring blocks within a radius of 3 x 3 x 3 blocks with the Totem of Dusk in the center. You can use this to build controllable taint farms for research purposes.
8. Vis Purifier
The Vis Purifier works similar to the Vis Filter, but instead of dumping the taint into the atmosphere, the purifier destroys it completely. The purifier has a suction strength of 5 Taint TCB and an internal storage of 4 units of taint. It destroys one unit of taint every five seconds.

Because of its weak suction strength, you need to use a Vis Pump if you want to place several purifiers in succession.

8. Eldritch Knowledge



Before you can create the items below, you need to research their corresponding theory using the Quaesitum.

NameRecipeDescription
1. Contained Emptiness
75
The Contained Emptiness upgrade enhances the capacity of the devices or items it is attachted to.

If applied to the Traveling Trunk, the trunk's inventory is increased by nine additional inventory slots. If applied to the Occultic Enchanter, the magic capacity of the item's material is ignored, which means that you can apply either stronger or more enchantments on weaker materials.
2. Darkness Generator
The Darkness Generator uses regular wheat seeds to create Seeds of Darkness, which you need to create other Eldritch items.

In order to be able to work, the darkness generator needs to be placed close to an Eldritch Monolith, and it also needs to be sheltered from light - any light (even moonlight) hinders its operation. The secret treasure chambers below an Eldritch Monolith which you can unlock using the Eldritch Keystone: Tlhutlh each contain one monolith and are thus ideally suited for the placement of darkness generators.
3. Eldritch Keystone: Tlhutlh
5
The Eldritch Keystone: Tlhutlh is needed to unlock the additional treasure chambers in the secret room below an Eldritch Monolith. Once you apply it to one of the four runes in this room, it will create an additional treasure with up to four treasure-filled Void Chests and one monolith in each of them.
4. Eldritch Mechanism
The Eldritch Mechanism is a key component in the creation of many Eldritch items. In addition to that, it can also be used in the Quaesitum to unlock additional secrets from the Eldritch Knowledge research tree.
5. Eldritch Stone
4
The Eldritch Stone is a hard material that lets light through and does not project a shadow. You can also obtain it by mining the structure of the Monolith chambers with an Arcane Bore.
6. Inert Eldritch Keystone
The Inert Eldritch Keystone is the first step towards unlocking the additional treasure chambers behind the runes in the secret room under an Eldritch Monolith. You need to research it further in the Quaesitum before you can actually put it to use.
7. Void Bracelet
200
The Void Bracelet allows you to travel to a random void portal linked with the bracelet. By default, it is linked to the standard Magic-Air portal network. If you want to link it to a different network, simply rightclick on a void portal seal with the Void Bracelet equipped.

You would be well advised to use the bracelet only when absolutely necessary, though. Each time the bracelet it used, it induces a taint charge of 50 % in the chunk you are teleporting to.
8. Void Chest
The Void Chest has a total capacity of 72 inventory slots and occupies one single slot. It does not need an empty space above it in order to be able to open.

If you place a Void Interface on top of it, you can also browse the inventories of other Void Chests that have a Void Interface attached.
9. Void Crusher
The Void Crusher unites in itself the functionality of the pickaxe and the shovel and can crush stones and ores as well as dirt, sand and gravel with relative ease. It is also quite a formidable weapon that will knock back any enemy you hit with it.

Like most tools and weapons, it can be enchanted using the Thaumic Enchanter or the Occultic Enchanter.
10. Void Cutter
The Void Cutter unites in itself the functionality of the axe and the swird. It can cut down any wood-related blocks with considerable speed, and it is a powerful weapon that saps the strength of any enemy you hit with it, making that enemy deal only half damage.

Like most tools and weapons, it can be enchanted using the Thaumic Enchanter or the Occultic Enchanter.
11. Void Ingot
16
8
The Void Ingot is an important component for crafting a variety of Eldritch items and equipment, including the Void Crusher, the Void Cutter and the Void Armor set.
12. Void Interface
You can place the Void Interface on top of a Void Chest by either leftclicking the chest or rightclicking on top of it.

Once the interface is placed, the chest is linked to one of six networks of shared inventories, all of which you can access by rightclicking on the interface (not the chest itself). Each network is marked by a different rune and color.
