    I don't understand this Research Point system at all.
    I've successfully researched about three things and I'm already running out of points.
    To get more points, apparently I need to either

    -travel the world, searching for nodes. That'd give me, what, four points every Minecraft day? And also be super boring?
    or
    -research the Deconstruction Table. With the research points I don't have. And I don't know which aspect to use anyway. And the recipes are seemingly random.
    or
    -put crystals by my Research Table and wait. A long, long time. I stared at those numbers and didn't see any increase at all, and my desk area is covered in crystals. Maybe they all cancel each other out??
    Bonus: the Thauminomicon actually says that crystal clusters have no use. Thanks a lot, lying book.

    So the taint is crawling around and I can't fight it without research, which I can't actually do.
    And I can't guess what the aspects I don't have are... because that consumes MORE research points.

    Have I missed something? Is some weird mod conflict wrecking everything (I'm using ATL)? Is the mod dependent upon killing mobs (as a Peaceful player that makes things a bit more difficult)? Or is the system actually this screwed up?

    I'm super bummed out. This feels like a game-breaker.


    to get research points you need to use the thaumeter on EVERYTHING.
    example is - stone, cobblestone, stone steps - pretty much anything you can make with stone you need to research it (as well as wood and so forth and so on). grass, flowers, leaves, nodes, fishing poles, fish, cooked and uncooked stuff, pretty much everything. You can't learn everything right away though so you need to actually get out there and explore while trying to research. You can also combine the primal aspects together to learn some of the other aspects on the table. (if you learn an aspect out in the 'wild' it will give you many more initial points then if you learn it by using the table)

    while the destruction table can aid in getting primals it takes (and destroys) A LOT of stuff to get much of anything though imo its faster then relying on the crystals. For air I use sugar cane (renewable resource that also gives water and terra aspect). The crystals also recharge primal points very slowly but its still good to set them up around your table.

    as far as taint...as others have said there isn't too much you can do about it other then digging a trench between it and you all the way down to the bedrock or using silverwood saplings (we just ended up moving entirely to a nice little sakura forest)

    use the thaumeter on EVERY node you come across. Most will give you points but some won't if its similar/too similar to a node you've examined before.

    so I just found this texture pack and it looks pretty sweet and as far as I can tell so far it doesn't override any of the thaum graphics

    Yes, it's great. Also, if you use obsidian shaft, it will recharge by itself.


    thanks for the reminder, I'm definitely going to do that now :D
    also, the turret idea would be so much op awesomeness lol, here, take my diamonds! :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond:

    OMFG I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE THE NEW EXCAVATION FOCUS!! It takes hardly anything to use and it plows through everything, even obsidian so fast.

    Much much better compared to the last wand of excavation that's for sure. I have yet to learn the bore but if the focus works as good in that as it does on a wand then omg am I going to be able to strip mine in no time flat :o

    Actually i think you were right the first time. The thaumanomicon says to use an arcane workbench to make the mirrored glass and then you make the mirrors with Arcane Infusion. I am having the exact same problem.


    can anyone else try to make the mirrored glass for the portal mirrors on a table and see if it works and report back. I hope this isn't some kind of bug because those mirrors are pretty awesome, especially coupled with a hungry chest at home waiting to pick up the items you send through the mirror.

    Can't find nodes, even with goggles :/ One in temple, one in thaumcraft dungeon and two probably spawned by my cauldron. None with fire aspect. Are they supposed to be so rare?


    look in a desert biome for fire aspect

    Im having an issue trying to make the magic mirror. I put the quicksilver and the glass pane on the table to make the glass for the mirror and it shows the essence that must be used but when I put my thaumium capped silverwood wand onto the table the aspect vanish and I can't craft the glass I need. I've tried all the other wands too and can't use them either, despite all the wands having more then enough essence in them.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    derpity derp i figured out my issue..stupid me...need to do it on the matrix @[email protected]

    There is a 2nd aspect, and an extremely rare one. I've only found it on a single item and I'm doubting it exists on any others.
    The aspect exists in ethereal essence. It can be obtained by killing a wisp or breaking a node. If you just want a direct answer click the next spoiler.
    The aspect is Auram. It's created by mixing Praecantatio and Aer.


    FINALLY THANK YOU!!

    I don't have Hamaichi though.

    Can't you connect via IP?


    I'm not sure. Bf might know, if not I'm sure he could look it up. It's worth a try at least. i think ill try to sleep now but I have you bookmarked so I don't forget you :)

    The Taint spreads though blocks. IF you were to make a gigantic trench that goes all the way to bedrock and is at least 5 blocks wide all around the taint, it would stop spreading. Or you could have just destroyed the ground that connects your house to the ground, and it couldn't have gotten infected.

    Keep in mind that taint is also in the caves that may go much farther than the overground taint.
    This means that it may actually spread though your trench via already-infected caves.

    You should also think about taking out your TNT and having a bit o fun with the taint :)
    Hey can i join your server?


    yeah i brought up the idea of making a chasm between us and the taint but bf didn't want to...didn't think about removing the ground from beneath the house though, I'll bring that idea up to him. about joining our server you should be able to do it through hamachi but after we tried to update something messed up somewhere and I started getting 5 min lag each time I tried to log in even after we reverted back to 4.0 version. No idea what was causing it. I had to direct connect through the router to make it stop. I can ask bf is he wants anyone other then IRL friends on but he's sleeping now. If our other friend who uses hamachi to connect ends up having the same problems I did then I just don't know what we'll have to do to fix it :(

    Man-made blocks should stop the spread unless that was changed. So use cobble or bricks, etc.


    cobble does not stop the spread of taint...it's slowly taking over our research tower so we had to up and move everything we had :(

    also...i direct connected to my server instead of using hamachi and my 5 min lag issues seemed to have stopped...at least for now anyway
