    Beginner's Guide to Blood Magic

    Yup. Found a new potion effect: Drowning (Base Duration 22 seconds, like Regen/Poison/etc), it's made by binding a water bottle into a potion flask. I'm betting that's a negative effect meant to be thrown at others, so I'm not gonna drink it. You can try it first :D :D :D. Bet it works on other...

    Beginner's Guide to Blood Magic

    It appears you have paid my ninja back, with a ninja of your own on Blood Alchemy @Padfoote Glad it was worked out. Eventually I find that I just make a bunch of Master Orbs to put in everything to avoid that problem, because it can be difficult to remember which level of orb is where. I'm...

    [0.5.1] Technomancy Discussion-Ore processing like a boss

    No, with a fully upgraded I-Furnace, you get a chance for bonus nuggets. You also get this chance off clusters not just regular ore, so technically TC gets you up to ~2.25x Processing.

    [0.5.1] Technomancy Discussion-Ore processing like a boss

    That was more what I was thinking. Azanor recently added crucible recipes to make native clusters with Ordo in 1.6. With the automated crucible in base TC, it's now just a matter of setting up a source of Ordo essentia, and feeding the ore in to the construct to get 100% doubled ores. It's very...

    [0.5.1] Technomancy Discussion-Ore processing like a boss

    I really like this idea, because the best Tech ore multiplier systems use many steps for the really high output (even TE requires you to get TE Cinnabar for x3/4 ore production, which is not inconsequential outside of maybe AgSkies). I would note that Thaumcraft alone already has a Ore doubling...

    Beginner's Guide to Blood Magic

    You have one life essence network per player. All orbs that player owns input into that single pool. I *believe* last time I tested the Orb's tier is the limit on how high that orb will let you put in, I.e. Even if you have a Tier 5 Orb bound, you still can't fill your network past 5K using your...

    .4.2a is working in my modified DW20 pack (It needed MOAR magic) :D

    GeoStrata Pendants?

    @belgabor : Did you hand place that rainbow stone effect? Because that is way pretty. How did you get the color blending that smooth without lots of trial and error? I'm so trying out Geostrata stone on my Magic World 2 world I've just started. Man do I love the hard work of the FTB team, I'm...

    Don't forget Lava Crystals in Steam Dynamos either, for a slightly(?) earlier game source of LP->RF. It's not a bad trade by the time you have a Tier 3+ Altar, but obviously gets better the as you gain more powerful Orbs & Altars.

    *Sanquine clouds appear as the setting sun bleeds the sky ...* What Foolish mortal who dares ... Oh. Good Evening Blood Magus, you have questions? Hmmm. No, you can't stack catalysts, but adding catalysts does not risk explosions either. The catalyst mingles with the enchantment in the flask...

    missing squid

    *Edited for Derp* Sorry, didn't read as closely as I should have. Somewhere in 2k of the Overworld should have been some water at the proper Y level. Nvm.

    If you happen to get a Lengthening Catalyst (instead of a Power as madnewmy got), you can go the Regen route with just 2 ghast tears also. That's what I used to make it up to a Tier 4 Orb, combined with a full set of Self-Sacrifice runes I believe, (my early failed attempts at getting out of the...

    My first guess is you're missing another Glistening Melon. Every time you add a catalyst, you need another item of what ever potion effect you're boosting.
