The Arcane Compendium serves asthe guide book for Ars Magica 2 (AM2) and needs to be obtained before any process in AM2 can be achieved. It has documentation of all the features that the mod includes.Most of the documentation is hidden, requiring certain conditions (such as reaching a certain Magic Level) to be met before it is revealed.
To obtain an Arcane Compendium, an Item Frame containing a Book must be place above a pool of Liquid Essence. Spell runes will then float out of Essence and "infuse" the Book with arcane knowledge, resulting in its transformation into an Arcane Compendium.
