Voodoo[edit | edit source]

Getting Started[edit | edit source]

Voodoo is a very standard form of witchcraft, which is performed with Poppets. These can be bound to players or creatures to cast spells on them. To begin Voodoo, you will want a large amount of Wool, Spanish Moss, String, Bone Needles, and any materials needed for the desired poppet. To begin, you will want to create the basic poppet. You can create the basic poppet with the following crafting recipe:


After you have at least one of these, decide on the poppet you would like to create. An explanation of each poppet is included in the guide, farther down this section.

Taglocks[edit | edit source]

Next, you will need to collect taglocks. Taglocks represent the creature or player which magic is to be performed. These are useful in other witchcrafts, such as rituals and rites. The most basic way to collect taglocks is using the Taglock Kit item. To collect the taglock using the kit, use it directly on the entity, or on a bed in which they have slept. You can also collect them with Blood Roses and Leech Chests. You can create Taglock Kits using the following recipe:

Binding poppets[edit | edit source]

Binding poppets is a very simple process. For all poppets, apart from Vampiric, you just combine a taglock kit with the poppet in a crafting table. This will generally be shapeless. However, Vampiric Poppets require two taglocks. The first poppet is bound to the victim, the second to the "parasite", in reference to parasitic relationships, or the beneficiary. Both taglocks should be crafted with the poppet at the same time. The tooltip of the resulting poppet should indicate what it will create.

Protection Poppets[edit | edit source]

The majority of poppets are used to protect beings. They do this by taking an effect instead of a bound creature. For the effects to occur, the poppet must be in the player's inventory, or placed in a Poppet Shelf. There are nine types of protection poppets, all serving different purposes. Poppet Shelves will be explained further in the guide.

Earth Protection[edit | edit source]

Black Magic Poppets[edit | edit source]

Like almost all magical concepts from Witchery, there is a darker side to poppet magic. This is in the form of black magic poppets. Witchery adds two black magic poppets: Voodoo and Vampiric. They can be bound as described in the above section.

Voodoo[edit | edit source]

The Voodoo Poppet is used to throw the bound being around violently. Sneak+using this weapon with Bone Needles in your inventory will stick them in the poppet, causing minor damage. Holding the poppet underwater may cause the linked player to begin taking drowning damage. The final way to damage the player using Voodoo is lava. Using the Poppet on a lava block will set the linked player on fire. It has a durability of 1000, but takes damage very quickly.

Vampiric[edit | edit source]

The Vampiric Poppet is used to redirect damage from one being to another. Both of these creatures must be bound with Taglock Kits, and the binding process is specifically described above. It has a durability of 1000, but takes damage very quickly.

Poppet Shelf[edit | edit source]

The Poppet Shelf is used in Witchery magic to simply store poppets, as well as to allow them to perform voodoo. Put the poppets into the internal inventory by opening the UI. Other items may be stored in this as well, but only poppets will be shown visually in-world. It has 9 storage slots. Any poppets that are placed in the shelf will still be allowed to perform magic, and this even works inter-dimensionally. Additionally, they count as chunk loaders; the vertical chunk that they are in will be loaded at all times. Poppet shelves can be created using the following recipe:
