Freakin' finally! Finally the game said I had enough natural earth and allowed me to do the ritual. I hope the earth increases my grinding potential.
I've started on doing the quests relating to bees and trees. Currently going along well. Even better, I don't actually have to do any actual beekeeping yet.

What is the proper way to use item ducts?

I see people reporting issues with item ducts getting stuffed with excess, and the new pack has a setting to prevent excessive stuffing, but how do you detect and prevent stuffing in the first place? How do you tell what is stuffed in; how do you make a "last resort removal" to empty them; how do you prevent stuff from being pushed into an item duct if it has anything backlogged in the first place?

Nullifier is your friend.
(it also stores all your reward bags.)​

I'm about to finish the quest with the Liquid Meat... I dont know where the meat comes from since I slaughter some skeletons but thats beside the point:
The possible rewards include 3 oysters or a reward bag. I'd like to pick te oysters since apparently there is no other way of obtaining them.

Did anyone find a way to get some oysters? Even if they're not quest relevant in any way, I'd like to go for them anyway.

There are so many reward bags anyway, I'd be strongly tempted to take the oysters. I need a pearl in order to craft the sea witch book.

I'd definitely choose the oysters

You can get them in a rewards bag, but that's the only way

How I choose my rewards from the quests is:
Is it unobtainable by any other method (excepting rewards bag loot): If yes, choose this, if no, continue to next reward and repeat question

So, me and someone else were playing on a server together. I got fed up with waiting for Thaumcraft stuff, and decided to venture into the other half of "You're a Wizard, Steve".
1. I hate that you need blood for everything in it.
2. I hate that you can kill yourself with it.
3. I hate how I didn't find out about the mobs being able to be used for the alter until I lost 3 lives and a bit of valuable stuff.
4. I got annoyed by how the runes to increase alter's hold capacity needs the third tier blood orb. Only because the way I was going, I needed them.
I finally thought of what to do. I filled up the alter with my own blood, then spawned chickens with the gold block in the alter, while the other person killed the chickens to get blood in there. After that, I made the air Sigil, and almost killed myself testing how it worked.
On a side note: I caused all but one of the 16 deaths in that world. Hunger, Evil pigmen, creeps falling from the mob grinder as I was getting back down, Angry Zombies, trying to get a enderman, and blood magic was the reasons for deaths.

I've now got one quest to complete in the Wizard Quest line.

But, I'll admit, I cheated in most of the lamps. I just hate infusion crafting. I do it from time to time, but crafting 16 Lamp of Growth and 16 Lamp of Fertility was something I can't stand to do. Despite the moderate instability, I only had a single issue in the 12 that I bothered to craft. I did chuck out the extra lamps that I had, along with the shards that I would have used, I didn't bother with the gold, bonemeal etc as they are plentiful. Yeah, I know that it's cheating, but I just didn't care, I'm happy to do pretty much everything else in the entire quest line, but doing that much infusion crafting wasn't something I cared about enough to do.

My turn to have a mini rant, I damn hate that there seems to be no way to finish the quest book on servers, all to date have, reset or have had the quest book reset on way way to many occasions, admins blame jaded, personally I beleave its the mcp/bukket pluggins, but ether way is such a pain, looks like I may have to suffer the boredom of a single player map just to finish the damn thing, & its a bit heart breaking to see the stupid crap the server admins have to put up with if & when one of the above resets happen, most players think its all the server admins fault & that they can fix everything in 60 seconds. I love the pack but wish play on a server (open servers mostly) is it so much to ask.

@killrbladez google would have saved you all that trouble, I am not a fan of blood magic my self, but when new to a mod I at least view the authors MC page if not the related wikihttp://forum.feed-the-beast.com/members/killrbladez.4282/

Just realized that it's risky on playing AS on any hosted server. You don't have access to a backup when stuff goes wrong.

but backing up to something an hour older for YOU, means taking an hour away from everybody.

It's not going to happen.
Well in most cases, when something goes wrong on a server it affects everyone.

In cases where it only affects you, then if the admin is competent and nice then they will help resolve the issue in a fair manner.

Trying to get worker bees... I have like 15 queens now and im running out of drones
Are you actually keeping the queens in the apiary to allow them to complete their life cycle?
You shouldn't be running out of drones.. the worst ratio is a 1:1 drone ratio, best is 1:4

Im new to bees :p thought that it would be more like a "hive" not just a queen sitting in there by itself
