Minegicka 3 is the successor of Minegicka 1 and 2, but is, and will always be, bigger than both, in terms of features and performance.
Minegicka is a mod that brings the core mechanic of Magicka - unlimited spell combination, into Minecraft along with a lot of other features exclusive to the mod.
With 8 elements in Minegicka to start with, you can create more than a quadrillion spells, furthermore, there are magicks that are some special element combination which have unique effects that will be useful in multiple situations throughout the game. Have enough magical knowledge and you can kill the ender dragon or the wither with a single strike of magic.
But that's not all, there are a great variety of equipment to choose from, tons of staves, stacks of hat, each has it's own effect, either defensive or offensive, some can give you resistance to lightning strikes while some can deflect arrows that shoot at you.
Still the customization does not end there. Comes with Minegicka 3 is a Staff Enchanting System (SES for short) that allows every staff to be customized the way its owner wants. Increase power, lower mana consuming rate, boost life efficiency,... honestly even the sky is not the limit.
Survival and PvP will never be the same, I guarantee that! Kill others with Arcane mines, light up portals with Fire sprays, or simply heal your wolf with Life beams from 100 blocks away while he constantly chases and rips monsters' butt off, Minegicka promises to bring a whole new way of life into Minecraft!
No videos are available yet, would you be kind and make a spotlight for the mod? I'll be very grateful

What is a(an) / are...?
-Element: Fire or Water or Arcane or whatsoever-image-in-a-circular-frame. Each of them is an element.
-Spell: A spell is a combination of elements, and then cast by using a staff.
-Magick: A Magick is a special combination of elements, and then cast by pressing the "Cast Magick" button.
-Thingy: Originally named "Magical Thing of Nothingness", is the most essential thing used to craft every other thing in Minegicka
-Ice and Steam elements: they are 2 advanced elements, queued by combining Water and Cold or Water and Fire in the queue bar, there is no need to unlock Ice and Steam, they are "unlocked" by default
What are the buttons to cast?
-Right click staff to do a directional cast
-Right click staff while sneaking to do an area cast
-Left click staff to do a self-cast
-Press R to cast magick
-Press R while sneaking to clear the queued elements
How do I get the first Thingy?
-You kill mobs (monsters and animals), the drop chance is approximately 3% chance per killed mob to drop a thingy. Or you can find mages, they usually drop 0-4 thingys,
What is the first thing I should make?
-The freaking Magical Craft Station. From then on you'll hate the vanilla crafting system.
How do I unlock elements?
-Craft the essences, and "eat" them.
How do I unlock Magicks?
-Craft a Magickpedia, it's where you will unlock magicks and understand how they work.
How do I cast a spell?
-Unlock some elements
-Queue the elements
-Make sure you have mana
-Hold a staff
-Right click (normal cast), or sneak-right click (area cast), or left click (self cast)
How do I cast an area spell?
-Sneak why you use a staff
How do I self-cast a spell?
-Left click instead of right click
How do I cast a magick?
-You must have the magick unlocked. Queue the exact element combination and press the "Cast Magick" button, defaulted to the R key.
What are the differences between a spell and a magick?
-A spell is cast by right-clicking / left-clicking a staff.
-A magick is cast by pressing the "Cast Magick" button.
-Every element combination can be cast into a spell, but only a few can be cast into magick.
-For example, Water + Shield cast as Magick will behave differently than Water + Shield cast as a spell. See for yourself.
Cast magick / Clear queue?
-Defaulted to button R. Press it to cast magick, or sneak while pressing the button to clear all the queued elements
-This was implemented as a way to reduce button count from 11 to 9, the other button was "Area cast" button
How do I get hats?
-You can craft them in the crafting station, start with getting some leathers and a thingy.
How do I enchant staves?
-Make a Staff Enchanting Table, either use vanilla crafting or use the Magical Crafting Station.
-Open it, select the staff, pick the ingredient combination, press Enchant, and voila!
You can find detailed guides for Minegicka 3 here
If you are new to the mod, here are the things you will want to do first.
-Go kill some monsters, if you are lucky they will drop a Thingy, or you can go around a find some mages, strong they are, but there's a much higher chance that you will get the item.
-Craft yourself a Magical Crafting Station, from then on you can craft any item in the mod with a single click! You'll soon hate vanilla crafting
-Craft some more thingys, craft some sticks, craft a staff, wield it, and viola, you are a wizard now!
-Now you need to unlock elements. Gather the materials and craft the essences, consume them, there you have unlocked your first element!
-You don't stop there, you craft the magickpedia, unlock the magicks, craft better staves, enchant your staff, craft a wizard hat, ready your mind and let's set out to kill Eighty-eight Eight.
Spells: here are some example of the spells available in Minegicka 3, the spells are countless, each combination of elements gives a different spell output
With a few mouse clicks, you'll be crafting stacks of items without having to remember the exact recipe
Staff enchanting is a powerful system that allows every staff to be as powerful as it can be
There's no way you will remember every magick combination
Monsters: from the inferior mage to the exquisite Eighty-eight Eight
The stupid mage, who wanders around the land without exact direction.
He who can use several sprays, lightning and beam spells.
Eighty-eight Eight, 888 health, spawns at y=188 in it's tower located anywhere with (x,z) as (?888, ?888)
Extremely powerful and dangerous, will kill every poor-prepared wizard with a single beam of arcane. Don't even dare to go up there unless you have strong teammates or are well-prepared with supreme spell-power and means of protection

Official Minegicka 3 website and server: http://minegicka.enjin.com/
Our server is website is managed by me and hemmy, hemmy has been a great help since the early development of Minegicka 3, and will continue to support the mod diligently. Any where you see hemmy's word, it's either correct or something we discussed about before actually putting into the mod.
My patreon link, I'll be glad if you can support me there: http://www.patreon.com/williamle

Honestly there's no easy way that I can do to force you guys not to use my mod in your mod pack, private or public, but you are not allowed to distribute modified version of the mod and you must distribute the download links from this site or distribute no download link at all, unless given permission by me.
Only this thread on minecraftforum.net and minegicka.enjin.com are the places that officially support the promotion of Minegicka 3. Watch out for fake links and sites.
Edit: I just noticed what your thread said about the videos xD Your mod is super freaking awesome btw! There is a ton of different spells and I love them! I already destroyed my brand new world!
I'll have a crap to of fun making a showcase!
Edit 2: Ok, here is my spotlight in English, your mod is awesome btw, I love all the different staffs and the things you can do with them
Something I've noticed is that the wizard hats appear to be dyable, but when I've tried, nothing really seems to happen. The wizard hat even has a bit of text under the name (when you hover the mouse over it) that shows what color it is. I tried using Cocoa Beans on it, so perhaps brown is just too dark, and doesn't show up? Would be really neat to be able to color the hat whatever we wanted to, if this is a bug.
here it is my mod spotlight, in Spanish though. It covers the whole features in the current release and how to install, so hope it helps with the Spanish community!
Btw, there are some issues using shaders (both SEUS, Sildur..) Not rendering at all the magical crafting station for instance!
Keep up with the great job
Because my rendering system is optimized for performance so it doesn't really work with shaders.
And thanks for the video I appreciate it but perhaps I'll just put an English spotlight on the topic so most can understand it
I see that the video is unlisted, I'll be very grateful if it's ever public
Thank you again
