    I'm not seeing any nodes in that picture. There are a couple of 'death puffs' (the particle effect when a mob dies), but those look different from a node, both with and without the Goggles. (And like Maka, I've seen actual hungry nodes in this pack. SeaWind's description of a huge crater is spot-on for a hungry node.)

    The crater is only going to show up if it's had time to pull things in. I'm pretty certain it's still gonna be a hungry node. I can't see any reason there would be a swarm of squid above water beyond that, not to mention that neither screenshot really would show the node. First, because he's dead. Second, because he probably isn't wearing goggles. Third, because it's surrounded by squid. Makes it quite difficult to see ;)

    Don't forget Occam's Razor, now. It'd be REALLY strange/unusual for this to be a bug, and makes much more sense for it to be a known and programmed part of one of the mods in this pack.

    Squids have been spawn by me to test mobs interaction with this bug ...

    To test this "bug", could you also spawn in some goggles of revealing and show me the space they were drawn to?

    My own testing.

    These two are without goggles of revealing.

    Well considering i started early game and wasn't paying attention to my surroundings since it was like 20-40 blocks away from a the connor of my base i give the node had plenty of time to make a crater. Especially if i just like to idle and not watch my computer. I'll get a picture in creative of my hungry node its a thing of beauty i say the crater was i didn't even notice it until i was node hunting haha.

    Oh, redstone systems. I'm having a hell of a time trying to automate a Dandelifeon (without using repeater-type setups). It's such an interesting flower.

    That is a hungry node. I'd be careful around it - it'll suck in anything and it does hurt. Anything entering the hungry node will be damaged or destroyed to embiggen the node's bulk.

    EDIT: Also a hungry node on water would not leave a crater due to the water's mechanics, be careful on those oceans, as hungry nodes are much harder to spot there,

    Yup Yup. I spawned in this hungry node as a control to compare against MakakPL's "bug".

    Noticed that myself a little after I posted. It def seems like a hungry node. As mentioned in my edit, hungry nodes above water are much more dangerous as they are harder to spot (especially without goggles of revealing). They don't leave their tell-tale crater after long enough. Although if you lucky you might spot the momentirly missing water block if you see the node eating that.

    There are two surefire ways I know to tell if a node is a hungry one without needing goggles.

    Firstly if there are any mobs floating in midair being damaged, that's a near enough guarnteed sign of a hungry node.
    And second takes a bit more of a keen eye to spot. The hungry node will pull in nearby blocks, when it does so you can see particles coming fom the node to the block being eaten, akin to that of an infusion alter "eating" items.

    These hobgoblins are beginning to get on my nerves. I've been trying to save up enough koboldite to create the coven witch spawn egg and its incredibly slow going. My first attempt with a rannuncarpus placing ore ended up smothering the poor thing. Hobgoblin 2 was doing a little better until I tried to trade with him and he somehow went hostile. My wolves came storming over and killed him, RIP little guy. Does anyone have a functional koboldite dust setup that I can set and forget for a while?

    Anyone can tell me ( in a spoiler window maybe :) what do i need to do to unlock the witchery quest line? I'm pretty far into tech and magic, and genetics... not so much to do with at the moment. 2015-09-29_12.07.46.png

    Oh and @Kmad : I solve my problem with agricarnations, i restarted my client :) They do a pretty good job at speeding up crops. Uses a very low amount of mana, and they stack.

    I just saw the death count on my screenshot hahaha, what's up with that ,! :D

    Ok, I'm a bit at a loss here.

    I'm playing the newst version 0.8.2 and to make the Witchery book Observations of an Immortal I need... Nether stars...

    Since I can barely get out of my hobbit hole and I think I need Witchery to progress quite a lot in the quests, is there a quest reward that offers the book or am I looking at this wrong?

    That book is for the side quest line for vampirism, completely non-essential to progression.

    To this i'll give you 3 words Magical Crop Seeds. Getting to 4th tier gives you 3 skulls and that unlocks wither seed to make wither essence which you can use to make skulls and the nether essence to make soul sand for wither boss easy as pie.

    Umm you should have the witchery thing unlocked since you need it to progress in 3rd tier of magic drops and starting in thaumcraft for greatwood sapling. I think your just missing the quest line or have you not made any mutandis? I also think making the easy books for witchery helps unlock but not sure. But my advice go through quests and see any that will end up having to need witchery to work or have you gotten the witchery seeds done? You need those and some nice supply of witchery wood sapling of all 3, Also make sure to have a nice supply of other saplings like oak, spruce, birch and jungle since you need to smelt in the witches oven, and finally make sure to have dragonstones on demand for the attune stones which are easy to make but pain to get if you haven't gotten the elf portal open.

    Yup. I think I had a pair about 60 blocks apart in an old Magic Farm 2 world. Though I've been having trouble finding them at all in my Regrowth world. I've found more naturally spawned in eldritch obelisks than hungry nodes so far... and hungry nodes were what I was looking for! Go figure...

    Ok thanks for the suggestions i'll look into that today. I've made some mutandis already and all the witchery seeds but i'm missing some saplings. I'll let you know !

    Looking at that screenshot, your Arcanist Rep isn't high enough to unlock the Witchery quests. If you can get it up two more points it will unlock. If you don't have any quests left to give you that rep I daresay your rep happened to get reset to 0 upon updating to 0.8.2, and as such, just choose the most recent arcanist giving quest you have available and uncomplete, recomplete and claim the reward for it using the edit command.
