Equivalent Exchange 2 is a mod originally written by X3N0PH0B3 and later maintained by Pahimar. The mod adds a variety of mainly late-game alchemical items as well as transmutation to the game. Basic transmutation can be done in any crafting grid using the Philosopher's Stone, however for the transmutation of most items a Transmutation Tablet is necessay.


All methods of transmutation have in common that items can only be transmuted into other items of equal value, which is measured in EMC, short for Energy-Matter Currency. It is however possible to transmute one item into multiple ones of inferior value, or to transmute multiple items into one of higher value, as long as the sum of all original items' values matches that of all produced items.

Another limitation is the differentiation between Matter and Fuel. While most items are considered matter, certain others are usable as arcane fuel - this includes some regular combustibles such as Coal, but also a few others like Redstone, Glowstone Dust, and some new items such as Alchemical Coal or Mobius Fuel. Initially it is impossible to transmute matter into fuel or vice versa, however some higher-tier items like the Energy Condenser or the different Klein Stars allow bypassing of this limitation.

Power Items[edit]

Besides transmutation the mod also includes a number of Power Items, which have certain powerful features, like the ability to create Water or Lava, suck in dropped items from a distance, or grant the player the power of flight. These items are however highly expensive, requiring materials such as Dark Matter or Red Matter to be crafted. In addition most of them also require arcane fuel to operate.
