A look into what Minecraft could become when you add a splash of magic...Ars Magica is a mod about casting powerful spells, fighting bosses, and having fun with magic! It features a unique spell creation system where you can create any spell you can imagine!

Getting Started in Ars Magica 2Edit

To get started in Ars Magicka by crafting the Compendium, you will need a Item Frame and a Book.

  1. Find a pool of liquid etherium, pictured right.
  2. Place a block next to the pool.
  3. Place an Item Frame on that block and right click with your book.
  4. From there, simply wait and enjoy the light show.

Upon reading the Arcane Compendium, you will be able to access the Oculus which is where you get the required spell components.

Continuing your JourneyEdit

From here, you can explore this mod as you please. The Compendium is a very abundant store of information. When in doubt simply refer to the Compendium.


The Compendium by default is staged to unlock as you go - this can be turned off via config. Keep in mind, the compendium doesn't limit progress, so even if something is locked, you can still craft and use it. Using and crafting items/blocks that you haven't yet unlocked will unlock them, as well as other items directly related to them.
