Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Combining elemetal shards with your inkwell results in some interesting effects. The Crystal Scribing tools seem to absorb knowledge as you use them to write. Once the well is empty of ink, you can absorb this knowledge for a small burst of research points by holding the tools in your hand and right clicking. Unfortunately, it burns the tool out and turns it back into a mundane Scribing Tools again."

Usage[edit]

The Crystal Scribing Tools are used in a Research Table in exactly the same manner as their mundane equivalent, and last for the same number of uses. Upon being depleted of ink (no remaining durability), the item will display a shimmering overlay similar to the one seen when an Enchantment is applied to a tool or piece of armour.

Taking the depleted Crystal Scribing Tools out of the table and "using" them (right click whilst not facing a block or entity) will turn them back into regular Scribing Tools and grant the user a small number of Research Points from each of the six Primal Aspects. The number of points gained appears to be randomised, but seems to be approximately 1-9 points of each (further testing recommended); it always grants some for all six primal aspects, not just one at a time. Once the Research Points have been harvested from the depleted Crystal Scribing Tools, the regular Scribing Tools that replace them will likewise be depleted of ink and will need to be refilled or crafted into Crystal Scribing Tools anew.


Crystal Scribing Tools can be used to create the following items:

Trivia[edit]

  • Depleted Crystal Scribing Tools can be condensed in a ProjectE condenser for infinite research points.
