Thaumcraft 4 Primal Aspects Issue

    Recently I've been getting into thaumcraft 4 and I've learned quite a bit so far but my only problem is i'm running out of the primal aspects. I've heard that you're supposed to have crystal clusters or something but i'm not to sure. Can anyone please tell me how to gain primal aspects quickly? Thanks for any replies!

    Scan nodes and have crystal clusters around your research table. The clusters will allow you to regenerate aspects when completely out. Bookshelves will also do this, but with more than just the primals.

    If you haven't already, make a deconstruction table or 2 or 4, and drop in crafting tables, wool, or natura berries (if you have a lot). You will get lots of primal aspects from them. You have to click the deconstruction tables to get the research point. Also, if you create items you have researched, you often get several of the aspects back.

    You can also go around and scan a bunch of nodes.

    If you set the thaumcraft difficulty to hard, you have to play the mini game every time, but you also get to choose the aspects you consume to solve the puzzle. This lets you take different paths to solve them thereby saving the primals until you need them.

    I have done almost all the research, and have not built a deconstruction table, and I have never run out of aspects. Although, I did get low enough that I had to stop researching and build some of the stuff before I could continue.

    Crafting table in deconstruction tanle is %100 chance for any primal except for ignis at the cost of four wood

    And as a reminder, Ignis isn't SUPER well used. It's common enough, sure, but really, unless you suck at research(like me) or are in easy mode(like me, occasionally), the lack of ignis likely won't hurt you in the long run.
    Much.

    USE WOOL!!!! It has a 100% rate as far as I know and i've been getting alot of air, ordo, aqua, etc. and this way works. DECONSTRUCT WOOL!!! Only side effect is that u sit there all day collecting the aspects and it can get boring. Hope I helped! :)

    I use all my wool to make covered ME cables.

    Colin must GROW!

    I should probably farm sheep or cotton or both or something, but meh.

    Have cave spider spawners in my mob farm so it's not like i'm short on string XD

    It is
    I hate easy
    It is actually more difficult than hard mode.

    how so?

    Because hardmode you can technically use any aspect and cheat sheets make it a breeze
    In easy mode you have a strict set of aspects for each research with no workarounds

    Ahh, icic. Though, in FTB there are so many uberblocks to scan... Scanning any advanced MFR/TE machine yields like 50 research points.

    The only downside is that primals are in short supply. Waiting on cluster regeneration or breaking down shit is very boring. Right now aer is a pain in the ass. I need a lot of permutio and pracantio, both requiring aer.

    Crafting tables. 100% chance to get an aspect, all aspects except ignis
