- This page is about Node in a Jar from Thaumcraft 4. For other uses, see Node in a Jar.
The Node in a Jar is a block added by Thaumcraft 4. It is the portable form of an Aura Node. It can be broken by right-clicking on it with a wand.
An Aura Node must be encased by Glass. (26 in total). Above the top layer of glass 9 Wooden Slabs must be placed down. Finally, the player must right-click on it with a wand and expend 70 vis in all primal aspects to turn it into a Node in a Jar. During the transformation the Node has a very high chance of losing one level of brightness.
The recipe below assumes that the Attuned Node Matrix was crafted with a Phial of Essentia of each primal aspect.
This recipe has an instability of "Dangerous."
Warded jars have proven themselves capable of storing all manner of mundane and mystical things, and you believe you have discovered another use for them - trapping aura nodes.
By constructing a large version of a jar around a node and enacting the proper mystical formula with your wand, the node will become trapped inside the construct which will quickly shrink to a more manageable size. The jar can then be safely picked up and moved around, but the initial trapping spell does have a very good chance of damaging the node.
While trapped, the node is kept suspended and will not regenerate vis, nor can vis be drawn from it. It is possible to free the node from the jar by placing it in the world and clicking on it with a wand. The jar will be destroyed in the process.
