How to Get More Aspects Thaumcraft

Posted on

Aspects can be described as the basis for all of the resources, structures, and research of Thaumcraft. Each of them represents the flavors of magical energy (vis and essential), and the knowledge used for research. Almost every item, construct, block, and entity (including mobs) in Thaumcraft is represented by a characteristic combination of aspects.

Both mobs and objects mods might also have aspects. They can be specified by the mod, or supplied by a bridge mod connecting it to Thaumcraft. For a lot of crafted items, the mod called Thaumcraft itself is able to calculate the aspects from their recipe, even if the mod itself has not specified them.


Every aspect in Thaumcraft is identified by a Latin name, a characteristic color, and an icon. There are six Primal Aspects and 48 Compound Aspects in Thaumcraft, with few add-ons adding additional compounds. Here is the list of the Primal Aspects and Compound Aspects:

There might be a case when you run out of the aspect. What should have been done in this kind of situation? You start with knowledge and research points for each of the Primal Aspects. You are able to gain more research points and learn Compound Aspects, by scanning mobs, constructs, blocks, items, or nodes with the Thaumometer. The scan will reward you with the research points in the associated aspects. However, if the tool target has aspects you have not yet learned, additional restrictions apply. Keep in mind that items cannot be scanned unless you know both the component aspects of each unknown one.
