"Thaumaturgy... which giveth certain order to make strange works, of the sense to be perceived and of men greatly to be wondered at." - Mathematicall Praeface to Euclid's Elements (1570), John Dee
Thaumaturgy is the capability of a magician to work miracles. A practitioner of thaumaturgy is a thaumaturge, thaumaturgist or miracle worker.
This is what this mod is all about - drawing magic from physical objects in the form of Essentia and reshaping it to perform miracles." - Official Thaumcraft Forum Page
Welcome to the Thaumcraft 4 wiki, where we explore the transmundane mysteries of your favorite Minecraft magic mod. Feel free to add any missing information to the wiki but try to make sure the information is accurate before editing. Most importantly, remember that we are a community of fellow Thaumaturges and scholars, so please be courteous to your neighbor.
To get started in Thaumcraft 4, one must first create a wand.
A wand is created like this:
It should be noted that there are multiple types of wands; however, this is the only one a new Thaumaturge has access to.
Once you've created a wand, the next order of business is creating your very own Thaumonomicon. In order to create this guide to all things Thaumcraft, you must right-click a bookshelf while holding your newly-created Iron Capped Wooden Wand (any wand will work if you need another in the future).
This Thaumonomicon will forevermore serve as your guide to Thaumcraft while in game.
