The core of the mod is the Essences. The Essences are really powerful stuff, and you can use that to craft some powerful tools, weapons and armors. Better than Diamond! Currently, there are 2 Essences (Electric Essence and Nether Essence), but more will come in the future. The mod is under development.
All weapons in the mod ignore damage immunity, and swords ignore attack speed. That means you can spam the swords really quickly. All armor in the mod does not use armor points; instead, they use a mechanic made by me called "armor factor". Armor factor is the original damage divided by the damage you took with the armor, for diamond that's 5, and for iron that's 2.5. Also, the armor can protect from even normally unblockable damage.
Creepers have a 10% chance to spawn charged, and charged creepers drop the required Pocket Lightning. A night of creeper hunting will usually yield you 1 pocket lightning. Use the Pocket Lightning and a bunch of redstone stuff to craft yourself the Electric Essence. And use the electric essence as the main parts and pocket lightning as the handle to craft some Electric Tools! Use JEI for all recipes in the mod, as some are quite complicated.
This sword does 8 damage, more powerful than Diamond. But the best thing about it is, you can right-click to shoot out a lightning bolt! This makes harvesting pocket lightning so much easier, as you can manually charge the creepers. And the lightning bolt blasts all nearby mobs away. There is a 4-second cooldown between lightning attacks.
This pickaxe is slightly faster than diamond, but when you mine Iron or Gold ore with it, the electricity inside this pickaxe auto-smelts the ore, and the ingot form is dropped. Very useful if you need lots of iron/gold and are too lazy to smelt them.
The rest of the Electric tools doesn't have a special ability, but they are slightly faster than Diamond. You can craft them if you have spare Electric Essence and can't think of how to use them.
This armor is pretty good. The full set gives you 5.4 armor factor, which is better than diamond, which only gives 5. And, it electricutes anything that dares to touch you! If you have the entire set, your enemy will get dealt 6 damage when hitting you! In rain and thunderstorms, this armor would give you speed and regeneration. The regeneration is not an effect, but you can still see your health going up. I made it that way so the effect stacks with regeneration potions.
Electric Bow & Arrows
These arrows are infused with electricity, causing them to shoot a lightning wherever they land. The Electric Bow is the match to the Electric Arrows, and it shoots them out. Electric Bows can shoot both Electric arrows and normal arrows, but normal bows can't shoot Electric arrows. On impact, the Electric Arrow does around 20 damage.
Nether Essence, Armor and Weapons
The Nether Essence is the next tier of the Electric Essence. This stuff is currently unobtainable, because you need Nether Gems, a ore added in the mod, to craft the Nether Essence. But I hadn't figured out how to make ores generate yet, so have fun with it in Creative mode.
This sword does 9 damage, more powerful than Electric. It also sets mobs on fire, using the nether energy infused into it. Its special ability is to shoot fireballs like a ghast! And the fireballs are more explosive than ghast fireballs, making this a good ranged weapon as well as a melee weapon. Because of this, there isn't a Nether Bow. There is a 2-3 second recharge between fireball attacks, depending on difficulty.
There is no Nether tools yet. That will be added in the next update.
This armor is better than Electric, considering it is the next tier. The full set gives you 6 armor factor, which is 0.6 better than electric. It burns anything that hits you, and also does 4 fire damage. There is no full set bonus for this armor yet.
