Thaumcraft Copper Wand Caps

Posted on

Wands Caps are the name of the two main components of making wands (including scepters and staves) and the other being the wand core. Each wand cap starts with 5 nuggets of some metal, crafted in the helmet arrangement. However, the advanced caps need progressively more complex magic to complete them, and the more advanced the caps, the more expensive it is to attach them to a wand.

The option of wand cap does not affect the storage capacity of a wand, but is able to provide a bonus or penalty to all vis costs when using the wand. Each bonus or penalty from caps combine with any other adjustments provided by equipment or the other factors.

A few cap kinds depend on metals from the other mods. For instance, the Copper and Silver caps will only be available or researchable if nuggets of those metals are present in the game.
