Fiery Essence Altar is a block added by the Hardcore Ender Expansion mod.
To create a Fiery Essence Altar, a player has to use Fiery Essence on the Basic Essence Altar (right-click the altar with the Essence). After that, the Altar will request 8 random items to be fed into it. Fiery Essence Altar may request the following items: Igneous Rock, Lava Bucket, Coal Block, Blaze Rod, Blaze Powder, Magma Cream, Furnace, Flint and Steel, Fire Charge and a Brewing Stand.
Fiery Altar increases the speed of smelting process in the nearby furnaces at a cost of Fiery Essence. Since the 1.3 update the altar also increases brewing speed in a Brewing Stand and Enhanced Brewing Stand. The speed increment depends on the amount of Fiery Essence stored inside the altar. Having 512 pieces of Fiery Essence in the altar makes the furnaces smelt things ~2.5 times faster.
The radius of Fiery Altar is 6 blocks on X/Z axis and 2 blocks on Y axis. The radius can be increased using range upgrades.
An altar can be upgraded using "sockets" - white areas in the 4 corners on the top side of the altar. Right-clicking those sockets with a metal block consumes the block and fills the socket. Right-clicking again will retrieve the block.
Any upgrade requires at least one "effect" block and one "boost" block. Boost blocks increase the efficiency of effects. It is important to choose the metal blocks for upgrading wisely as only 4 blocks can be used.
