The Essence Nexus is a Nexus that converts items thrown within its boundry into Neutral Essence.

I'm also having this problem.

there needs to be an empty block below the center of the neutral nexus where you have to place liquid essence (use a bucket and collect it in the world).
as soon as this is done, the nexus starts drawning essenze from that liquid and removes it when finished.
(huge blue glow on circle)
theoretically you then only need to pull the lever on the crafting altar to let it "load" the essence from the nexus (within 10 blocks range) or a loaded battery.
-i guess one bucket = 500 essence
i dont know why, but this does not allways work as expected.
sometimes pulling the lever results in nothing.
even if there is a full nexus, a currently drawning one or a loaded battery next.
i built my first altar faceing south, made one spell that needs essence with it.
built a second altar faceing east, did not work with essence.
thought: ok, it needs to face south... rebuilt it but still does not work.
the strange thing is: suddenly my first one does not work either.
is it a bug or a feature i do not understand?

also you need to use a crystal wrench to link the crafting alter to the nexus

Hi there! I'm having the same issue. I am trying your solution. The mana cell loads up during the day, so far, so good. I also coupled it with the altar via the wrench, but the altar is still calling for neutral essence. Is there any way for me to see how much essence is already loaded into the altar so I can see some progress? And how long will I have to wait? The mana cell stays at 12.00% charge, so I am not sure whether the essence ends up at the altar or not.

Google is your friend

If you're not going to say anything useful, please don't post at all.
Inside of your Arcane Compendium (made by putting a writable book in a frame next to a pool of liquid essence), there is a Structures tab with all of the multi-block structures listed inside. For the crafting altar, make note of the book stand and the lever. The book stand goes on the left next to one open side and the lever goes on the second block up on the right of the same open side.

From what I was able to find a while back, you can only have one block/structure paired with one other at a time. So what may have happened is you paired the mana battery to the altar first (make sure you paired it with the actual altar block at the top-center of the structure) and then paired it with the nexus. Once paired with the nexus (or anything else) it would have un-paired from the first thing.

The battery needs a strong redstone signal to charge from nearby nexuses.

Well the problem I'm having is i get it paired with the nexus (just right click the nexus then the altar(block) with the crystal wrench, right?) but when I hit the lever, it just flips back up. Bug?
