Basic Essence Altar is a block added by the Hardcore Ender Expansion mod. It is used to obtain all other altars available in this mod and has no purpose otherwise.

Basic Essence Altar can be bought from a Librarian Villager (a Villager wearing white robe) and has a small chance to spawn as a loot in Dungeon Towers.

To convert a Basic Essence Altar to another altar, a player has to use a respective Essence (right-click the altar with it). After that, the Altar will request 8 random items to be fed into it. The item will be shown above the altar. After providing all the necessary items, the altar will convert itself. This cannot be reverted.

Types of Altars[edit]

Altar Essence Required Items
Dragon Essence Altar Dragon Essence Obsidian, Stone Bricks, Map, Book, Bookshelf, Iron Fence, End Stone, Ender Pearl, Eye of Ender, Enderman Head

Right-clicking the altar with an item produces an item-unique sound. For example, Ghast Tear sounds like a wounded Ghast, Emerald sounds like breaking a block of Glass etc.
