Thaumcraft is a Minecraft mod that effectively turns the player into a thaumaturge; a magician with the ability to draw magical power from physical objects and can reshape them to perform a wide variety of 'miracles.' These miracles can be anything, from powering magic symbols, enchanting items with special properties, or even reverting objects back into different forms of matter.
If you’ve ever wanted to play a mod that allows you to experience the realistic life of a wizard trying to survive, Thaumcraft delivers the ultimate fantasy.
Reshape Your World
With the ability to turn physical objects into magical energy called ‘Vis,’ this mod gives new meaning to the idea of unlimited possibilities. Conduct research to gain more insight into the nature of Vis, and perform wonders the likes of which only a wizard could do:
- Turn common metal into gold.
- Move objects through dimensions.
- Create golems to do your bidding.
- Summon magical bees.
All this and more help to enhance your Minecraft experience.
An In-Depth Crafting System
In Thaumcraft, there are 50 different types of Vis that are used to create a wide variety of spells and items. By transforming a normal cauldron into a crucible, you gain access to the basic abilities of a thaumaturge. Craft new magically enhanced weapons and armor such as, but not limited to:
- Thaumaturge’s Robes
- Sword of the Zephyr
- Axe of the Stream
- Pickaxe of the Core
- Goggles of Revealing
- Wand of Frost
- Wand of Lightning
Experiment with combining items, and you may just stumble onto a new exciting creation.
In the Thaumcraft mod for Minecraft, one of the items you can make is called an ‘Arcane Bore.’ This device fires a laser in the direction you point it at a max distance of 64 blocks. Anything it comes into contact with will automatically be collected and turned into Vis. Craft multiple bores, and create your own quarry while looking down at your land high atop your floating tower.
