If ya don't mind, I'd like to see your setup? This would be my first time with witchery, so I'd not want to get it wrong lol
Ok, here ya go:


Here is my main witchery setup. Witches Oven and fume funnels on the left, Altar on the right, items on the altar all improve it and are detailed in the quest book. (Except for the player head, for those that don't know, that is Vazkii's head, the author of Botania. FYI 16 pink petals in the apothecary and its yours. Player heads give a big altar bonus.) As you can see the area is overgrown. In Witchery, more "nature" = more altar power.



Here is my witches cauldron. For low tier stuff it doesn't need to be near your altar, but for higher it does, so plan for that. It also needs fire under it, so try to find a place for it that it won't spread fires.


Here is my circle for charging attuned stones. The center (gold) glyph needs to be within 14 blocks or so of the altar.

I've had machines disappear from my world. Hoppers, auto assemblers... I checked the FTB config settings and found that remove erroring entities and tile entities were both set to true. Is this what is causing the world deletion of the different tile entities?

A few quick notes.
- You can use chalk circles around your cauldron to reduce power costs. (they are different than the ritual circles, look in the blue witches brews book for crafting, then circles)
- The altar has a range of 16 for distribution (at the same height as the altar, Distance is spherical. Chalk runes count as the block above the one they are placed on), adding the Arthana to the altar increases it to 32. The last placed block of the altar is where the distance is measured from.
- Power gathering for the altar is in a range of 14 blocks, not boosted by the Arthana. (also spherical) If you need more power you can go into the ground and place things.
- You can have multiple ritual circles for various things. You can also have multiple cauldrons. (blue brews book, you can summon a demon using two infernal circles and certain ingredients.)
Effective power reduction with minimal side effects (short slowness, etc)

@Rokuma, could we see the rest of your setup?
This was in a test world, and was setup to help someone out with easy crafting of the drop of luck/redstone soup.
Imgur Album
FTBWiki Altar Page (useful for figuring out what to add for more power)
I don't have any images of the last setup, but it would have been somewhat difficult to show as it was on multiple floors. I'm currently starting a new world due to corruption so I can't grab any images.

My top level (actually ground level) was a small forest with tall grass and various plants for power. At the maximum 32 block distance out was my primary ritual circle.
Second level was my farm level, additionally benefiting the altar for power, down a third layer was where my cauldron/kettle/distillery/spinning wheel area. An obsidian room next to that was my cauldron based demon summoning spot. (Little tip, if you're invisible demons don't attack you making trading easy. Botania's Tainted Blood Necklace can be enchanted with "cloaking" to do so, just remove armor and make sure you have mana available.)

EDIT: Basically, power wise, anything with the same ID# count as the same ignoring meta/damage value.
Think of the altar as a generator/battery combo, with wireless transmission to any "machines" of the mod.

Tip: Use a Dispenser to plant vanilla crops for extra altar power.
Hmm, crops are not that good actually. 5 crops will get you about 20 base altar points. The best way to get massive altar power is to probably to exploit the different tree groups.

It goes something like this:

Group #1 - Rowan, Alder, Hawthorn
Group #2 - (Natura) Maple, Silverbell, Amaranth, & Tiger
Group #3 - (Natura) Redwood Bark, Wood, & Root
Group #4 - (Natura) Eucalyptus, Sakura, Ghostwood, & Hopseed
Group #5 - (Natura) Willow
Group #6 - (Vanilla) Oak, Spruce, Birch, & Jungle, Acaia
Group #7 - (Thaumcraft) Silverwood, Greatwood

Each one of those group scan give up to 100 base altar points, +100 base altar points for leaf blocks. I dunno why it's set up this way because the groups seem mostly arbitrary, but hey it works.

Not really arbitrary, it's based off item ids, so ones which share the same I'd and differ by metadata/NBT will be in the same group for determining limits. Pretty sure dark oak and jungle (or is it acacia?) are in a different group to the rest of the vanilla logs so it's actually two groups.

Also the altar should have a cube shaped area it searches for power sources, not spherical.

Another Thaumcraft question. I swear I remember seeing an item in the Thauminomicon that was described as being like a Divination Sigil for the Infusion Altar, giving you a reading of its stability. Can't find it again. Pretty sure it was an add-on item. Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

The item you are thinking of is the "Arcane Abacus" from Witching Gadgets.

As there is a discussion about circles, here is my current setup (just under 17K). I'm standing on my blood magic altar - Tier 5, self-sacrifice /w regen. I'm working on getting the T5 orb, as I've not done alchemy and summoning before. I don't have plans to go T6.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-zDeN8o6SKOVks5Q194NkVWVDQ

In the center you see the main circle, altar and basic tools. Behind the altar is a forest of various trees, grass, etc. Under this circle is where I stashed a bunch of various logs not seen here. A dragon egg is behind the tree that the oven is at. I went and made the pentacle anyway (I only wanted ingots for coven witches), but IMO was not worth it. Filling the chalice and adding my head were the best boosts.

Left (starting from the bottom), is the Cauldron /w circles, Kettle (stashed in a nook of limestone), and you can kinda see the wispy cotton of my 'dream world' launching point.

I could have cut this part off, but on the right you see my current Thermalilly config, as well as the Forestry farm and (way in the distance) part of the Thaumcraft and Mekanism areas. The farm is off as I have over 6K of most things now. Though I am considering re-working the farm to make more of what I don't have tons of - which is why it looks so small.

I'm having an issue completing the Alfhiem quest in the quest book. I made a portal, tossed my book in, and it never shows the quest completed. Manual Submit does nothing either. I've switched to cheat mode and spawned a ton of lexica books, making sure it just has the minecraftian knowledge, toss it in, and get a book back, but the quest STILL doesn't complete. Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue?

I can't use the conjuration catalyst to duplicate redstone (only shows the option to make mana powder). Bug or feature?

I don't know how to get that item, or it's disabled. I only see one kind of quest book in NEI and since I'm a solo player I don't know about any sort of OP commands or such. Is there a guide for this?
