Witchery allows players to explore the magical art of witchcraft and though it, to learn to control the natural magic present in the world (and sometimes other dimensions).
Witchery provides several branches of witchcraft for a new witch or warlock to try their hand at. Witchcraft does not really resemble the flashy spell-casting performed by wizards and their ilk. There are no lightning wands or spell books, enchanted armor or flaming swords; instead, a well tended witch's garden will provide a lot of helpful ingredients for magic that will get you out of the occasional scrape.
There are of course darker sides to magic; and although these may bring power more quickly, the cost may be too high. Making bargains with demons should never be undertaken lightly!

Important: There is always a tiny possibility that updating this, or any mod, may break your saved world. Make a backup before updating, just in case.
(if the Curse version is not yet updated, there are also direct download links in the Version History below)
Regarding Minecraft 1.6.2: Some players are running Witchery with Minecraft 1.6.2 without problems, so it seems to work just fine. I am not officially testing this version though, so please use at your own risk. Please do post bug reports if you find any though!
- Install Minecraft Forge (follow the installation guide)
- Download this mod (link above) and place the zip into your Minecraft Mods directory.
The Witchery website provides all the recipes that Witchery offers, there is also a getting started guide!
Notes for Server Admins
There are a few items in Witchery specifically for servers, namely the Void Brambles (to stop destructive magic) and the Statue of the Goddess (to allow a special location that players can use to be healed from curses). The statue can be disabled from being crafted in the config file, since it effectively makes cursing not so useful. The Rite of Prior Incarnation allows a witch to recover despawned items for a dead player. This ability requires a high level of committment to the mod to achieve and can be disabled in the config file. This rite is not compatible with death chest style mods and should be disabled if one is installed (it will try to auto disable itself too if it finds a known one).
Very Important: The Rite of Hell on Earth will set fire to things now (if cast by a witch with a cat familiar), you may want to either disable this in the config file or massively reduce fire spread. Extreme server lag can (and probably will) result!
