Ok, here ya go: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
A few quick notes.Ok, here ya go:
Here is my circle for charging attuned stones. The center (gold) glyph needs to be within 14 blocks or so of the altar.
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.
This was in a test world, and was setup to help someone out with easy crafting of the drop of luck/redstone soup.
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.Tip: Use a Dispenser to plant vanilla crops for extra altar power.
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.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.
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?

I think I was watching Automagy tutorials from this guy so it might have been where I saw it. I might add it but I already scanned my Runic Matrix so I might have to cheat to unlock it.
Or not. That's definitely it, thanks.The item you are thinking of is the "Arcane Abacus" from Witching Gadgets.
knowned issue, just use the OP quest book to complete the questI'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?
