Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure : Episode 21 – Researching in Thaumcraft

Today I put my wizard hat back on, and begin to dabble in the weird ways of Thaumcraft research.

Realising that magic is not the only path to success, I also show how to create a batch of Damascus Steel with Metallurgy. Damascus Steel is made by mixing bronze dust and iron dust. It is a little better than iron for most purposes, and is significantly more durable, meaning that gear will last far longer. All tools and armour made with Metallurgy metals have a unique appearance too.

Mods Encountered

Metallurgy by Rebel Keithy and Shadowclaimer : There are a great many ores and alloys in Metallurgy beyond the ones I’ve used so far. Most of them are rarer, or in the Nether or End. Damascus Steel is a good working material for me where I am, still in the very early game.

Grimoire of Gaia by Silentine just updated to 1.4. As well as taking pity on me in my Extreme Hills home (Silentine watches the series!) by pushing Griffons and Valkyrie up from sea level, the new version also adds 5 new monsters whom I’m sure shall be delighted to see me.

Thaumcraft by Azanor : At last I’m back on track to becoming a mighty Thaumaturge! I did mispeak though, as I have done a little with Thaumcraft in a previous episode. You can catch me creating my first wand, and the fabled Thaumonomicon back in episode 11.

The crucible is a tricky beast, from what my studies tell me, so is going to require a room of its own. I’m extending the ground floor of the wizard tower to accommodate it.
