Thaumcraft Quick Tip: Using Essentia Phials for Crucible Alchemy

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 8 years ago

Some recipes for crucible alchemy are easy to match, with no Essentia leftovers, but it's not always easy or possible to do so. This method might be helpful at times - like when you need an even amount (like eight) of any kind of Essentia. I found out about this when I needed to make a lot of Balanced Shards, and it really helped!

Using Essentia Phials can be combined with throwing items into the crucible, of course. And remember that you can't fill a phial with less than 8 essentia, so make sure to match the "crafting amount" with that. The Phial will be destroyed in the process, but they are cheap to make.

I often say Essence instead of Essentia, please take no notice of that :)
