Logo-TC 40 Symbols and Runes contains information about the ThaumCraft mod.

In ThaumCraft, combining blank Symbols with various blocks (required block or item noted in green next to Symbol name) or items in an infuser creates special magical circles/squares that can be placed on the ground or against walls. They have varying effects and their functions can be modified further by placing a Rune on the Symbol.

By default most Symbols affect an area 7 squares wide and 7 squares long depending on how there were placed. Most Symbols can be deactivated by connecting them to active Redstone current.

RunesEdit

There are 6 types of Runes (Iron, Gold, Diamond, Flint, Redstone and Lapis), each crafted by combining a blank Rune with the appropriate item in a charged Vis Infuser). They modify the functioning of the Symbol they are placed on (see the listing below).

Stone

Blank Symbol

Stone Symbol



The Iron Symbol pulls items towards it, while the Stone Symbol pushes them away. The Symbols do not consume Vis, but the item speed is quite slow. Any movement occurs on the horizontal axis only. If within range of a node, the pull/push strength is increased, but Vis is consumed.

Rune effects: Iron Rune Grid Iron Rune doubles area. The Gold Rune Grid Gold Rune causes the Symbol to push or pull on the vertical axis as well. The Diamond Rune Grid Diamond Rune causes any items that reach the Iron Symbol to be sucked up and placed in an adjacent chest.

The verdant Symbol promotes the growth of plants. Crops, reeds, cacti, melons and watermelons grow much faster along as there is a node nearby and there is Vis to consume. As a side effect moss also slowly grows on any Cobblestone in the area.

Earth(Dirt Block)Edit

Vis-Infuser-GUI-small.png

Dirt

Blank Symbol

Earth Symbol



The earth Symbol has several practical uses. By default it tills any dirt or grass blocks in its area (at no Thaum cost), and when imbued with a Diamond Rune it also harvest fully grown crops, melons, etc. Harvesting does require a nearby node and costs Vis.

Frozen (Frozen Vis Crystal)Edit

With a Gold Rune Grid Gold Rune it slowly lifts the mob into the air. With a Diamond Rune Grid Diamond Rune it can affect more than one mob at a time.

Void (Stabilized Arcane Singularity)Edit

Stabilized Arcane Singularity

Blank Symbol

Void Symbol




Void-portal

A void portal connected to the Redstone Rune network.

These Symbols acts as a means of traveling long distances in an instant. However they need to be placed on an arch of obsidian for them to function properly (as pictured above). The arch requires 7 blocks of obsidian in total (3 each side and a center keystone on which you will place the Symbol). If properly placed a gateway will soon form that will send you to other, similarly constructed gateways. Each time the gate is used it needs time (and significant Vis) to recharge - this applies to both the source and destination gate. Items and creatures can also pass through the gate, though their Vis cost and recharge time is much less than for the player. There are also talismans which allow you to teleport to any network from anywhere in your world.

NOTE: Symbols placed on a surface without an obsidian arch still counts as valid exit points for transportation, but cannot be used as entry points - one-way gates if you will.

Rune effects: Any Runes placed on this Symbol determined what 'network' it belongs to. For example, enter a gate with a Gold Symbol Grid Gold Rune and you will appear at one of the other gates marked with a Gold Symbol (randomly determined for networks with more than one valid destination). Symbols without Runes also counts as a distinct network.
