Released on April 16th, 2015 for Minecraft 1.7.10.

  • TWEAK: OPs in creative mode get a hint which skin changed player is sending chat messages.
  • TWEAK: Significantly optimized the client-side performance of Mirror blocks.
  • TWEAK: Optimized the reflection mob a bit to be a bit less CPU intensive.
  • TWEAK: Added a config option (ShrinkMirrorWorld) that will only use half the Y space in the mirror world for structuregen. This will need the world to be recreated to use though.
  • TWEAK: Optimised the lightmap a bit in a newly created mirror world.
  • TWEAK: Added limited support for AM2 for reflection mob equipment.
  • FIX: Breaking through mirror world walls no longer gets you stuck in the wall.

Released on April 12th, 2015 for Minecraft 1.7.10.

  • NEW: Magic Mirror, made by binding a demon to the mirror with a circle magic rite, activate it to find the fairest in the land, the fairest may not be the player but rather another NPC (leaving only one way to become the fairest).
  • NEW: Magic mirrors remember who walk past them, and will tell when asked.
  • NEW: Walk into the mirror to enter it, beware the demonic creature inside (defeat it to take control of the inners of the mirror, although the mirror will then no longer be able to talk to you, or do other reflection magic).
  • NEW: using "/chant mirror mirror send me home" may get you out of a stuck place in a mirror
  • NEW: Placing a mirror on the wall when in a mirror may need altar power to get working (until both sides of the gap have mirrors on them)
  • NEW: Using the Taglock kit of another player on a mirror containing a demon will allow the player to change their looks (skin) to that of the other player if there is altar power available. Using an empty taglock kit (or the players own taglock) can be used to turn back to normal (this does not need altar power). Brews of Revealing can also remove this effect. Use the config options: B:AllowChatMasquerading and B:AllowNameplateMasquerading to control these two aspects of this power.
  • NEW: Create a Duplication Grenade by using a Quartz Sphere on a mirror containing a demon to charge it with the players reflection (assuming enough altar power is available). Throwing this sphere will create a duplicate of the bound player and cause mobs currently targeting the player to target that instead.
  • NEW: Reflection demon, mirrors the player.
  • NEW: Use opposite facing mirrors (that have had their demon slain), to teleport between them (over a maximum of 16 blocks), or teleport up or down up to 16 blocks with mirrors above each other with the same facing.
  • NEW: Heart of Gold, dropped from the Fairest of NPCs, used to add animal attraction or animal repulsion effects to a brew in the cauldron. Drinking the Animal Attraction will instantly tame untamed creatures in a wide area, and all animals will try to approach the drinker. Animal Replusion will untame tamed creatures (not tamed by the drinker) and cause animals to run away.
  • NEW: Summon Reflection Demon, use a mirror in a circle rite to summon one of these odd creatures.
  • TWEAK: Added a config option I:RiteOfEclipseCooldownInSecs that will set the minimum number of seconds allowed in a world between activations of a Rite of Total Eclipse. By default this is zero but may be increased up to 3600 (1 hour). This cooldown will only take effect if more than one player is in the world at a time.
  • TWEAK: Lowered the priority of the hotbar drawing so other mods have a chance to draw their stuff before Witchery vampire code takes over.
  • TWEAK: Village guards and witch hunters are now immune to arrows from village guards.
  • TWEAK: Werewolf silver weapon detection should now support a few more silver types from other mods.
  • TWEAK: Added a configuration option to increase Spirit spawn rates.
  • TWEAK: There is now a config option to disable player to player werewolf infections: B:AllowPlayerToPlayerWolfInfection.
  • TWEAK: Added more bed types to taglock kit support
  • TWEAK: Added PVP mode support to some Mystic Branch effects, so no damage can occur if PVP is disabled.
  • FIX: Rite of Total Eclipse now persists the minecraft day.
  • FIX: Glyphs drawn with chalk are now immediately visible to other players on a server.
  • FIX: Sunlight grenades no longer replace non-complete solid blocks that they pass over (under some circumstances)
  • FIX: An issue with incorrectly set up potion ids lead to a NPE when the domination effect was on a villager.
  • FIX: Suppressed a (probably correct) NRE when another mod incorrectly provides a null value for the fluid to various fluid API methods.
  • FIX: Bats spawned with the vampire power no longer drop items.

  • TWEAK: Vampire knockback effect only triggers if sneaking when striking.
  • TWEAK: Hobgoblins will flee village guards if not in a pack.
  • TWEAK: Moon Charms may be repaired in an anvil with a gold ingot.
  • TWEAK: Purified Milk may also be made from a Cake (don't ask...) since some mods remove milk buckets.
  • TWEAK: Placed Garlic Garlands will now be rendered at the top of the block, and allow click-though below them, this allows players to place them before a door to prevent vampire entry, and still look good.
  • TWEAK: Dream Weavers now work for vampires sleeping though the day in a coffin.
  • TWEAK: Coffin should not now open when there is a block above it.
  • FIX: Open coffin lid was being inappropriately culled.

  • FIX: Unreproducable null reference exception occurred in cauldron handler for NEI, seems to be related to something messing with the item to block mapping or unlocalised name of wispy cotton. Apart from trapping the exception and adding logging, there is not much more I can do when a system gets into this state since the block item is being set to null (perhaps as a result of some type of item/block name tweaking).

Released on July 21, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.10 and 1.7.2.

  • NEW: Bind a Waystone to a player or creature in a Rite of Binding, creating a Blooded Waystone.
  • NEW: Transpose to the location of a player. Rite of Transposition using a waystone can now take the occupants of the circle to a player/creature bound Blooded Waystone.
  • NEW: Deliver objects with Owls. Give a tamed Owl an item and use a Bound Waystone or Blooded Waystone on the owl (the waystone does not get consumed). The owl will fly to the appropriate location, drop the item and return back to where it started from (it may take a while). If given a splash potion or brew, it will throw the potion instead of just dropping it.
  • NEW: Mob: Hobgoblin. Spawns in forest, plains and swamp biomes. Can be led with a Leash. Can form villages like normal villagers do (build huts for them). Will trade if part of a village. Hobgoblins do not like villagers, and will attack if there are enough Hobgoblins nearby (Hobgoblins are too cowardly to fight when not in hordes).
  • NEW: Worldgen: Hobgoblin Huts. Almost always contain a Hobgoblin.
  • NEW: Hobgoblin Miners. Leash a Hobgoblin to a post and give it a pickaxe and it will begin mining nearby blocks.
  • NEW: Hobgoblin Gatherers. Leash a Hobgoblin to a post near a chest and it will pick up nearby dropped objects and place them in a nearby chest.
  • NEW: Koboldite Dust. Hobgoblin miners have a small chance to find Koboldite Dust, this can be crafted by certain Hobgoblins to nuggets and finally ingots (they may require some gold or emeralds to do this however!).
  • NEW: Koboldite Pickaxe. Like a diamond pickaxe, but in the hands of a Hobgoblin Miner (and only a Hobgoblin miner) will turbo speed its mining, and cause its dropped ores to multiply.
  • NEW: Pentacle, made from Koboldite, when placed on an altar will double its recharge rate.
  • NEW: Statue of Hobgoblin Patron. A witch may create this statue and bind it to themselves. When placed, nearby hobgoblins will probably start venerating this new patron. Boosting the powers of whomever that is. The more hobgoblins the more powerful the results.
  • NEW: Passive infusion power regen in the area around hobgoblin worshipers with a small number of worshipers.
  • NEW: Boost Mystic Branch powers through hobgoblin worshipers. Drawing larger versions of a symbol will result in some effects having becoming AOE, or with even more worshipers, larger or more powerful effects. E.g. Defodio increases to a 3x3 or larger dig effect, Aguamenti spawns more water, or even a small amount in the nether.
  • NEW: Wrath of the Hobgoblin Gods. Causing Hobgoblins to worship the player can (very small chance, but it increases with more worshipers) cause two avatars: Mog and Gulg (read boss fight) to be sent to deal with the witch.
  • NEW: Mog's Quiver, epic loot sometimes dropped by Mog. Worn in the chest slot, functions as leather armor (with much higher durability and repaired with leather). Provides unlimited arrows for an equipped bow. Fired arrows travel much faster, and cause extreme damage to airborne (or jumping) creatures. Being close to another player wearing Gulg's Gurdle, grants a resistance buff.
  • NEW: Gulg's Gurdle, epic loot sometimes dropped by Gulg. Worn in the legs slot, functions as leather armor (with much highter durability and repaired with leather). Causes 4 damage (2 hearts) when striking with an empty hand, and launches the target into the air (Shoryuken!!!). Being close to another player wearing Mog's Quiver, grants a resistance buff.
  • NEW: Stockade block. Crafted from logs and Exhale of the Horned One. These spiky blocks make excellent outer walls that are rather hard to chop down. Also falling onto them causes damage, making them excellent for spike traps.
  • NEW: Add config option for non-PVP servers to prevent taglock collection for other players by clicking on the player or player's bed. In this way taglocks must be given by their owner.
  • NEW: Added a config option to prevent taglock collection from OPs.
  • TWEAK: Rite of Icy Expansion now generates ice that does not melt.
  • TWEAK: Added a new block for Torment flooring. This will only generate if the Torment dimension is newly created.

  • FIX: Issue where cooldowns on spells like Tormentum become extremely long when going to MystCraft worlds.
  • FIX: Sending a player to Torment from the nether, made them appear in the wrong location.
  • FIX: TileEntities such as the candelabra that do not require update ticks now no longer schedule themselves for requiring them. Basically means an extremely, microscopic (i.e. almost not noticeable) improvement in performance.



Released on June 17, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.2 and 1.6.4.

Released on June 16, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.2 and 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Minedrake plant. Mutated from Mandrakes and creepers. Dropping the seed of this plant will spawn an animated Minedrake (after about 3 seconds), which will head towards the target of the player who dropped the seeds. Minedrakes tend to explode when they reach their target, or are hit (the explosion is small and does not harm scenery). Minedrake seeds can also be planted to grow more.
  • NEW: Statue of Broken Curses. Creative only block that looks like a stone wolf. If turned on in the config file (off by default), it will prevent any entities being cursed by one of the directed curses (Misfortune, Sinking, etc.), if they are within a 32 block radius of the statue (radius is also configurable). Murdering players in this range, removes protection from a player.
  • NEW: Statue of Occluded Summons. Creative only block that looks like a stone mandrake. If turned on in the config file (off by default), it will prevent any entities being summoned by the Rite of Transposition, if they are within a 32 block radius of the statue (radius is also configurable). Murdering players in this range, removes protection from a player.
  • TWEAK: Using a Taglock Kit on a player to get their Taglock now is sensitive to the direction of approach and whether the player is sneaking or not. Collecting from the front, chance is 1% and 10% if sneaking, collecting from behind chance is 30% and 60% if sneaking. Invisibility adds 10% to the frontal chances.
  • TWEAK: Added Chinese, German and Russian translations for 0.19.0 features.
  • TWEAK: Added Thaumcraft 4 aspects for 0.19.0 items and entities.
  • TWEAK: Restricted recall in Torment.

  • FIX (1.7.2 only): Witchery NEI recipe handler for Witches Oven no longer causes a div by zero error when another mod causes the enumeration of burnable items to go wrong. The slot will just appear empty.
  • FIX (1.7.2 only): Titles in NEI views for witchery machines were not translated.
  • FIX (1.6.4 only): An invalid cast exception could occur if a Leech Chest is placed near a chest-like block from another mod (missed the back port, whoops).
  • FIX: A null reference exception that could occur when using the Polynesia Charm when another mod has messed with the vanilla items now no longer occurs. The offending items is now just not listed.
  • FIX: Added a bunch of extra sanity checks for issues found in OpenEye (which technically are other things breaking stuff and then passing garbage values to witchery methods, but hey it avoids a crash, at least at that point).
  • FIX: Foci items are returned if a Curse or Teleport is prevented by wearing Witch Hunter armor.
  • FIX: Unhandled exception occurred if an object with a high damage value is given to a tamed imp.
  • FIX (1.7.2 only): Removed witchery crop blocks from creative tabs (only the seeds should be there).
  • FIX (1.7.2 only): It was not possible to use a damaged Arthana in a rite.

  • FIX: Using some witchery items (such as the Mystic Branch) were not clearing cached data when the item was dropped (or changed) while being used (use button pressed).

Released on May 17, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.2 and 1.6.4.

  • TWEAK: Changed the default dimension ID for the Spirit World to a negative value (-37) to avoid conflicts with mods such as Mystcraft and GalactiCraft.

Wearer has 90% immunity to Rite of Transposition pulls. Wearer is 100% immune to Vampiric Poppets. Wearer cannot use protection poppets. Wearer has a 25% chance of avoiding general Magical Damage (including voodoo poppets).
  • NEW: Witch Hunter Pistol Crossbow. Load by shift using (change ammo by shift-using again). Fire by using, has the same strength as a charged bow. Charge use to get crit. Different ammo types are available. Hand Crossbow may be enchanted (infinity halves durability loss instead of giving infinite ammo).
  • NEW: Wooden Bolt - Default ammo for the Pistol Crossbow. Effective against bark belt wearers and baba yaga.
  • NEW: Bone Bolt - Causes 1.5x damage against undead and demons (including players under the effects of the Infused brew of the grave).
  • NEW: Splitting Bolt - Splits into 3 Wooden Bolts fanning out in front of the crossbow, each bolt does half damage.
  • NEW: Nullifying Bolt - A wooden bolt that does not take the enchantment effects of the Crossbow. If fired by a player wearing the full Witch Hunter armor set, the bolt will reduce the power of a struck magic using player by 1/3 of their max level. Poppets (Death protection, vampiric, etc.) in poppet shelves will not function for the hit. Firing a nullifying bolt will completely drain the magical power level of the shooter.
  • NEW: Universal Antidote - Potion that when drunk will nullify poison and wither effects (stacks to 4).
  • NEW: Poppet Shelf Compass - Device with gems that light up as the player nears a poppet shelf. The more gems illuminated, the closer the shelf (has a range starting at 128 blocks).
  • NEW: Mob Witch Hunter - When a player uses black magic (voodoo poppets, parasitic poppets or curses) there is a chance that the Witch Hunter guild will notice and dispatch agents to track down the witch. These agents will appear from the shadows some time after the black magic is used, and attack the witch.
  • NEW: Binky's Skull can now be dropped upon defeating Death. Using this skull on the ground will summon death's horse Binky. When Binky is killed, its skull will be dropped ready to be used again.
  • NEW: Death's Footwear, Robes and Hood. Defeating Death may result in one of these pieces being dropped. The set (there are no legs) is iron armor with the durability of diamond. The chest piece grants fire immunity, the feet allow walking on liquids. The hood allows seeing in the dark and slowing those who the wearer looks at.
  • NEW: Hand of Death. Defeating Death may result in this being dropped. Attacking with it causes a chill touch against the target (15% max health damage ignoring armor). Using (right-click) this while wearing all death's clothes will summon death's scythe (use again to dismiss). Death's scythe drains your hunger constantly. The lower your hunger the more damage the chill touch will do. Hitting with the scythe restores hunger and life depending on how low your hunger bar is. The scythe can hit multiple targets.
  • NEW: When a player summons Death, if a player is wearing all the Death Gear set and holding Death's Hand, that player will be summoned instead of the death mob.
  • NEW: As an experiment into block protection, all block altering effects on the Mystic Branch now generate the Forge BlockBreak event and will not perform their action if the event is cancelled. As long as servers are correctly using this event for block protection, this should be a good solution. Confirmed to work on Thaumcraft 4 warded blocks.
  • TWEAK: Increased the spawn rate of Wispy Cotton in the Spirit World, to be more frequent.
  • TWEAK: Changed the spawn rate of Spirits in the Spirit World, to be less frequent.
  • TWEAK: Placed Spirits will not despawn.
  • FIX: An issue with Brew of Substitution and Solidifying Brew (Erosion).
  • FIX: Using a Boline to hit a Thaumcraft 4 plant caused a null reference exception to occur. I think this is a "bug" in Thaumcraft, but this workaround stops the exception.
  • FIX: Spirits will now despawn when the player moves far enough away.
  • FIX: Brazier recipe for Drain Growth was too expensive and could cause lag.
  • FIX: Tinkers' Construct has now fixed the issue with Heart canisters and being poisoned, so the Bark Belt UI icons now have to not do the workaround they did.

  • NEW: Fetishes - Scarecrow, Trent Effigy and Witch's Ladder. These blocks can be used as decorative pieces, or used in a Rite of Binding to bind spectral creatures into them. The combination of spectral creatures causes a placed fetish to have a different effect. Taglocks may be used on a fetish to add that player or creature to the objects list of known entities.

  • NEW: Spectral Stone - Used to trap aggressive spectral creatures (spectre, banshee and poltergeist) using a Rite of Bindin, can be used to summon the creatures in an enthralled state (so controllable with the Necromantic Stone). Can hold up to three creatures.
  • NEW: Baba Yaga's Hat - Like a normal Witches Hat but has only a 25% chance (instead of 35%) for a second potion, but has also a 25% chance of a third potion. Also at the cost of 2.5% of a players infused power, the is a chance the player will be teleported a short distance instead of being hit.

  • NEW: Seeping Shoes. These shoes cause any poison in the wearers body to seep out from them (removing the effect), into the ground and causing a bone meal effect in a small area.
  • NEW: Ruby Slippers: These slippers allow a bound waystone to be used without the need for a circle. Once every 30 minutes, the slippers can be used without a waystone to teleport to the wearers bed (if they have one). The slippers have all the other properties of witch clothing.

  • TWEAK: Both enthralled zombies hit by a Brew of Love will now become zombie villagers.

  • NEW: Spirit World Dimension - Almost identical to the overworld. If any player in the dimension is experiencing a nightmare it will be night time, otherwise it will be daytime. Players experiencing a nightmare will be chased by their Nightmare. Dying in the Spirit World causes the player to wake up in the Overworld. Using an Icy Needle will also cause a player to return to the overworld. Circle Magic does not work in the Spirit World.

  • NEW: Brew of Flowing Spirit - Flowing spirit flows where the potion lands, flowing spirit can be picked up in a bucket. Flowing spirit has a mild regen effect for players standing in it.

Can be transported back to the Overworld as long as it remains in its original glass bottle.
  • NEW: Spirit Portal, created using snow blocks surrounded a 2x2 empty area. Activated using Flowing Spirit on. Can only be created in the Spirit World. Players who have used the Rite of Manifestation on themselves can pass though these Portals into the overworld at the same location and appear as ghosts. Only Icy needles can pass though with them! Use an icy needle to return to the Spirit World (or after the effect of the Rite of Manifestation expire). When a manifested players time runs out, or uses a needle anything they are holding (except icy needles) WILL BE DROPPED!
  • NEW: Rite of Manifestation. Allows players in the circle to manifest though Spirit Portals for a total of 2.5 Minutes (+25 secs per coven member). Requires Mellifluous Hunger.

  • NEW: Brew of Wasting. Instantly breaks leaves blocks in the area of effect (causing drops if they have them). Monsters hit will be withered. Players hit will experience hunger problems.
  • NEW: Dream Weaver of Intensity. Boosts the effects of nearby dream weavers, Digging and Speed increases the effect (and slightly reduces the duration). Fasting extends the duration from (4 mins to 6 mins). Also adds a very short night vision/blindness effect.
  • NEW: Biting Belt. Craft with a portion to apply that effect one time when hit (same behavior as the Parasytic Louse). Worn as leg armor, has the same protection as leather. Can be died. Can be repaired in anvil or with Impregnated Leather.
  • TWEAK: Using a taglock on a Treefyd for Villagers or vanilla farm animals (sheep, pigs, etc.) will make the Treefyd ignore all creatures of that type instead of just that one instance.

  • TWEAK: Dream Weaver of Nightmares now applies a weakness debuff instead of confusion. Two nightmare weavers still cause blindness.
  • TWEAK: New config file setting to control the number of players that must be asleep for a Dream Weaver buff to be applied (prior versions required all players to sleep which is not necessarily the case when using the Morpheus mod).
  • TWEAK: Added support for Altars to draw power from flowers and crops from other mods.
  • TWEAK: Rite of Protection circles are 1 block wider so that they enclose the ritual glyphs to prevent leaving a gap for small creatures to run under. The barriers also remove replaceable blocks like grass and snow.
  • FIX: Placing an Arthana on an Altar was not being rendered correctly in Fast Graphics mode.
  • FIX: A distillery, Rites of Protection and Rite of Recharging were not rechecking the range to the closest Altar when an Arthana was added or removed, requiring them to be replaced/restarted to apply the effect.

  • FIX: Curses and Counter-curses were not refunding foci items if the target player was not logged in.
  • FIX: Rite of Shifting Seasons was not syncing some client-side tile entities with the server-side data following the biome re-sync.

Covens members can be called on for assistance in a fight, used to enhance circle magic, or used to perform very powerful rites.
  • NEW: Seer Stone - Call a member of your coven for aid or use on a Circle glyph to call your entire coven to enhance the ritual. Coven members can die so be careful when calling for aid! Use on another player within 3 blocks to get a report of which curses are currently afflicting them.

  • TWEAK: Owls and [Toad (Witchery)|Toad]]s will no longer despawn (after some minutes) if not tamed.
  • TWEAK: Babies produced from tamed Owls and Toads will not automatically be tame. This allows untamed animals to be produced without the need for more mutation (because only untamed animals can roam).
  • TWEAK: Changed the alpha blending mechanism for screen overlays slightly.
  • FIX: Fixed a Minecraft 1.6.2 crashing issue when an Apothecary's Shop is generated (this only happens in 1.6.2).
  • FIX: Worked around an issue with Ents, where a specific combination of mods can cause a client-side crash when the Ent is spawned (not sure what the mod is that causes the problem though).

Released on December 28, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • TWEAK: The Recipe for Void Bramble has be changed to use Ender Bramble and two nether stars.

  • FIX: Using Defodio Mystic Branch effect on a Lux Capacitor block placed by the Modular Powersuits mod causes an index out of range exception (and subsequent crash).

Released on November 30, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Statue of The Goddess - Block that when activated will cure any curse on a player. This is a *very* expensive block to craft (and the recipe can be disabled in the config file). This is intended as a way for server operators to provide a way for cursed players to find a cure at a designated location in the world, if they so desire.

  • NEW: Rowan Keyring - Add Rowan Door Keys to open any doors associated with their keys (no more inventory bloat!). Crafted initially from two Rowan door keys. Craft together with yet another Rowan Door Key to add it to the keyring. There is no limit to how many keys can be added (craft one at a time though).
  • NEW: Increased movement speed (to something near normal) when using the Mystic Branch and a symbol is-being/has-been drawn.
  • NEW: Abandoned Shack chests have a chance to contain a spruce sapling. This provides an alternative path for players who are unable to locate a Spruce tree, much like a village apothecary shop contains a cactus plant.
  • NEW: Witchery world gen will occur in the Twilight Forest. This can be disabled in the config file.
  • NEW: Crafting a bone with two Wood Ash will now yield 4 bonemeal, add wood ash in multiples of two to increase bonemeal yield by one.

  • FIX: Worldgen shuffle algorithm was skipping Wicker-Men most of the time.

  • FIX: Witchery books that show potions for ingredients will now also show the potency and duration of that potion (e.g. Potion of Swiftness (8:00) or Potion of Harming II).


Released on November 25, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Mob Ent, spawns sometimes when witchery trees are felled. Drops saplings and Ent Twigs. Causes things to grow wherever it walks.
  • NEW: Kettle recipe for Mystic Unguent, ingredient for infusion.
  • NEW: Mystic Branch created with a Rite of Infusion using Mystic Unguent and an Ent Twig. A Mystic Branch allows an infused player to draw symbols in the air to produce magical effects. Effects generated by the Branch may be deflected with another branch by attacking (much like a ghast fireball). Some effects cannot be deflected and some effect require a specific infusion to be drawn.
  • NEW: Curse of Misfortune. Circle magic to inflict random ailments on the victim who's Taglock Kit was used. The maladies are random and come and go. They can get worse if a remove curse goes wrong. An Anti-Voodoo poppet is the best protection.
  • NEW: Rite of Remove Curse. Circle magic to remove a curse from a player suffering from a curse of Misfortune. There is a chance the cure will make things worse (this chance is higher if the curse is stronger).
  • NEW: Mutating Sprig. Crafted from an Ent Twig and Mutandis Extremis. Can convert grass to mycellium and back and turn wet dirt to clay. Can also be used to create plant constructions with an appropriate recipe (e.g. the Leech Chest).
  • NEW: Leech Chest. A plant mutated into a chest. Behaves like a trapped chest but cannot be doubled. The chest will take a small drop of blood from whoever opens it, and keep it in one of it's three sacs. It will only store one sample per player. Using a Taglock Kit on the chest will allow any samples to be recovered with the exception of the using player's (only when that player is logged in however). The blood sacs' contents will survive the chest being broken and replaced. This all means, if another player steals from the chest, there will be a finger print left behind. This finger print can also be used to bot identify the thief and send a nasty curse in their direction! Created by using a Mutating Sprig on a Trapped Chest that is surrounded on four sides with Vine which themselves each sit above a water source block.
  • NEW: Added a new book, Witchcraft: Herbology that describes the plants in the mod, how they grow and how to get them.
  • NEW: Rite of Broiling. Cooks any food placed into the circle when the rite is started. Some food may get overcooked and turned to charcoal.
  • TWEAK: Shift-right clicking on a bed with a Taglock Kit will now bind the kit to the clicking player (it does not matter which bed). This has been added for servers where no one ever sleeps!. Normal right-clicking will function as before to collect the bed owners taglocks.
  • TWEAK: Using a Taglock Kit on a bed will now cycle though the players who are bound to that bed (if they are logged in).
  • TWEAK: Using a Taglock Kit on another player now only has a 50/50 success chance, and the other player will notice if the attempt fails! Gaining access to their bed is now the only "risk-free" way of gaining a taglock without discovery. Using a kit on creatures still has a 100% chance of success.
  • TWEAK: Due to the conflict of interest if a Death Chest style mod is installed along with witchery, Witchery will disable the Rite of Prior Incarnation if such a mod is found. This behavior can be configured in the config file. The keep inventory rule is also checked.
  • TWEAK: A Fume Funnel can now also be placed on top of the Witches Oven to give an additional 10% speed boost.
  • TWEAK: Icy Slippers will also turn lava into obsidian when walked on. They will take damage if they do this though. And there is always a small risk of catching fire if your server is laggy!
  • TWEAK: Added icons to the Witchcraft: Circle Magic book's tabs to make identifying the sections easier.
  • TWEAK: Rite of Moving Earth once again moves tile entities within the circle. Picture frames and Item frames will get detached though (it is an earthquake after all!).
  • TWEAK: Rite of Moving Earth now respects different circle sizes (and ingredients) to determine the area of effect.
  • TWEAK: World gen distribution is configurable in the config file, and should also be significantly faster. Default 12, lower numbers for more density, higher for less.
  • TWEAK: Infernal Infusion abilities are much cheaper to use.
  • TWEAK: Added enchantment glowing effect to brews, Enchanted Broom and a few other items.
  • TWEAK: A Rite of Summoning that fails due to obstructing blocks within 4 blocks of the central glyph, now refunds foci items and sends a reason to the chat log.
  • TWEAK: Changed the Brew of Raising to summon 1-3 undead instead of 2-3.
  • TWEAK: The witchery config file now contains an entry for the Wicker-Man world gen. This entry is a list of creatures that can appear in the Wicker-Man's spawner. Add multiple in stances of the same creature to improve the chance of a specific mob appearing.
  • FIX: Added cactus as a second ingredient (plus a variable third ingredient e.g. gunpowder) for Rite of Moving Earth to avoid conflict when a medium and small circle are present.
  • FIX: Bonemeal used on Witchery trees now does not have immediate effect, and functions closer to how bonemeal on Vanilla trees works (although not as random).
  • FIX: When using bonemeal on a Witchery tree, there is no longer a chance of a client-side only phantom tree appearing.
  • FIX: NEI recipes for the Kettle now show the correct number of resulting Brews or Infusions.
  • FIX: Breaking a block on which a Chalice or Candelabra was standing, removed the chalice/candelabra block but did not drop the corresponding item.
  • FIX: Placing a Leaping Lily on a 1-deep water block, incorrectly placed it on the ground below the water.
  • FIX: Missing registration for Snowbells with Thaumcraft 4, preventing harvesting golems from doing their work!.
  • FIX: Rite of Earth's Wrath required a two deep lava pool to start, this has now been changed to allow a wider pool that is one deep.
  • FIX: Glint Weed light level was too low.
  • FIX: Placing a Treefyd Seed where it cannot grow was incorrectly consuming the seed.
  • FIX: Trying to fertilize Witchery saplings with MineFactory Reloaded machines was causing a crash (invalid cast).



Released on November 15, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Snowbell plant; grows like Belladonna, seeds found by breaking tall grass. When grown and harvested drops Snowbell seeds, Snowballs and occasionally Icy Needles.
  • NEW: Brew of Frost; Throw at a creature to encase it in ice, or throw at the ground to create a wall of ice, or throw in the water to freeze it. Some creature hit may have unexpected side effects.
  • NEW: Icy Slippers; Created from Impregnated Leather, a Frozen Heart, Diamond Vapor and String. Functions in much the same way as leather armor (they can be dyed), but will freeze any water that is nearby (essentially allowing the wearer to walk over water). The slippers can be repaired with three Impregnated Leather or by using an anvil.
  • NEW: Brew of the Depths. Breath underwater for 5 minutes, but don't expect to be able to breath on land! Milk will not clear this effect.
  • NEW: Craft a Wicker Bundle from nine saplings (of any type) (now proper wicker men can be built!)
  • NEW: Distill a Demon Heart with Diamond Vapor to get Demonic Blood
  • NEW: Craft 5 Wicker Bundles with Demonic Blood to get Bloodied Wicker Bundles (quite flammable).
  • NEW: Mob Horned Huntsman. Hard to beat.
  • NEW: Added an additional recipe for the Rite of Binding (Circle Talisman) that uses a Charged Attuned Stone and glowstone dust.
  • NEW: Changed the Rite of Broken Earth to require a Brew of Erosion instead of Soul Sand.
  • NEW: Changed the Rite of Moving Earth to require a Brew of Sprouting instead of Cactus.
  • NEW: Configuration file option in the General section to disable the Rite of Prior Incarnation.
  • NEW: Brew of Thorns thrown at a cactus will extend it vertically by 4 blocks. Thrown at a creature surrounded by cactus will extend each cactus by 1 block.
  • NEW: When a rite fails, a reason for the failure will be shown in the chat (e.g. no altar, no lava below, etc.).
  • FIX: Placing a barrier block (not possible without using pick block in creative) when having Railcraft installed caused an unhandled exception due to Railcraft empty blocks not being cleaned up and occupying the same space as the placed barrier block.
  • FIX: Disabled pick block from selecting Barrier Blocks
  • FIX: Items dropped on death when picked up still contained an empty NBTTag leading to them not being stackable with similar items (which by default has no tag).
  • FIX: Acquiring the bat creature power for the Infernal Infusion caused an exception on a server. This could have lead to a crash in some configurations (not quite sure which).
  • FIX: Using the pick tool on the following blocks did not yield the correct item: Glyphs, Chalices, Candelabra, Plant Mines, Witchery Doors.
  • FIX: Block breaking rites, brews and infusions (Erosion, Thorns, Broken Earth, Moving Earth, Earth's Wrath, Overworld infusion, etc.) will no longer break bedrock or blocks with tile entities.
  • FIX: Brew of Sprouting will stop vertical growth at y=255;
  • FIX: It was possible when decanting a brew from the kettle, that if the last decanted brew used the last glass flask and the brew could activate against the kettle that it would get used immediately.
  • FIX: Repairing witches clothing would repair the item without actually completing the craft.
  • FIX: An apparent bug caused by an interaction between Biome O' Plenty and OpenBlocks leads to a crash on start-up when the NEI integration of Witchery tries to enumerate burnable items. This exception will now just be written to the log instead of crashing the game (although the crash will probably occur elsewhere until it is fixed in OpenBlocks!).



Released on November 10, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Apothecary's Shop and villager now spawn in villages. The apothecary will sell ingredients used in the Witchery mod. Can be disabled in the config file.

  • NEW: Added the Wicker-Man to world gen. This pagan effigy has an eerie affinity with zombies. Can be disabled in the config file.
  • NEW: Added an Abandoned Shack to world gen. Respite when checking in the wilderness. Can be disabled in the config file.
  • NEW: Increased the number of redirected hits possible with the Vampiric Poppet from 10 to 15.

  • NEW: Mutandis Extremis used on an underwater dirt block may turn it, and nearby blocks into clay blocks.
  • NEW: Witches Hat can now be repaired by crafting it with three Impregnated leather (normal anvil repair still works).

  • NEW: Witches Robes can now be made using Impregnated Leather and a Creeper Heart. The robes are equivalent to a leather chest piece and can be dyed and repaired with leather in an anvil (or by crafting with four impregnated leather). Brewing while wearing the robes gives a 35% chance of gaining an additional brew in the same way as a Witches Hat does (for a combined chance of 70%). The robes will not give a bonus to necromantic brewing. While wearing the robes Creepers will not be hostile.
  • NEW: Necromancer Robes can be made by crafting impregnated leather with a necromantic stone. The robes are equivalent to a leather chest piece and can be dyed and repaired with leather in an anvil (or by crafting with four impregnated leather). Brewing necromantic brews (Brew of Raising) while wearing the robes gives a 45% chance of gaining an additional brew in the same way as a Witches Hat does (for a combined chance of 80%). While wearing the robes Undead will not be hostile.
  • NEW: Polynesia Charms can be used on Creepers or undead creatures, if used while wearing Witches Robes or Necromancer Robes respectively.
  • NEW: Glint Weed, a plant created using Mutandis on another plant. Generates light equivalent to a torch. Spreads on grass, dirt and sand. Can be broken and placed on or below most surfaces (e.g. on a ceiling).
  • NEW: Brew of Love. Splash potion that will cause all hit adult animals to begin breeding, irrespective of their current breeding cooldown. If two villagers are caught by the same potion, they too will begin courting.
  • NEW: Rite of Prior Incarnation. Perform this rite near to where a player has died. If that player is standing in the circle, any items that despawned will be recovered along with that players reanimated skeleton!
  • NEW: The book Witchcraft: Circle Magic now has tabs along the right hand side that allows quick traversal between the major magic types in the book: Binding & Charging, Transposition, Protection, Nature, Summoning, Infusion and Necromancy & Curses.

  • NEW: Clicking on the arrow in the NEI view for the Witches Oven, Distillery or Kettle now shows all recipes for that device.
  • FIX: NEI view for the distillery now mostly fits in the NEI window. The Distillery GUI is a bit too large to make this fit perfectly.
  • FIX: Rite of Nature's Power now converts gravel to grass and will check if an item can be planted on a surface before it is planted. Also added a particle effect.
  • FIX: Shrunk the funnel on the Witches Oven so that it fits in the inventory and does not have the rendering and clipping glitches because it is outside a normal block size.
  • FIX: Added a few missing mappings for block and item Thaumcraft 4 Aspects.


Released on November 3, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • FIX: Circle magic was not being nullified correctly (incorrectly deleted a return statement :()

  • NEW: Thaumcraft 4 Fire Bats and other mod bats can drop Wool of Bat.
  • NEW: Water Artichoke Seeds, Belladonna Seeds and Mandrake Seeds have been given a new item ID. The old seeds are still present (now prefixed with "stale") and all behave the same way. Only the new seeds can be replanted by Thaumcraft 4 Golems however. All plants only drop the new seed IDs.
  • NEW: If a Rite is aborted either due to no power or accidentally picking up one of the foci, all consumed foci will be returned.
  • NEW: Sided Inventory logic has been improved/added to the Witches Oven, Distillery and Kettle allow automation using Thaumcraft 4 Golems and Buildcraft Transport Pipes. The kettle must be full of glass bottles in order to automatically extract brews. Bottles can be filled either by throwing them in or by pumping/using a golem. Filling the kettle with bottles is not needed to use the kettle by hand.

  • NEW: The Witches Hat now gives a 35% chance of getting an additional brew when decanting a brew (if the brew supports the hat bonus, of course). For example, each decanting of a Brew of Webs (3 results per brew) has the 35% chance of an extra brew.
  • NEW: Rite of Nature's Power, brings nature to the area around the circle, growing trees and plants, converting sand and stone to grass.
  • NEW: Void Bramble, negate Circle Magic within 32 blocks of them. Causes a random teleport (up to 500 blocks away) if walked into. Can only be removed by the player who placed them. Very expensive to craft.
  • NEW: Added a sound effect when a player jumps on a leaping lily.
  • NEW: Chinese Translation (zh_CN) (special thanks to crafteverywhere on the Minecraft Forums for all the work on this!)
  • NEW: German Translation (de_DE) (special thanks to Galxis on the Minecraft Forums for all the work on this!)

  • NEW: Devils Tongue Charm, makes bargaining with demons a little safer (and may reduce the prices a bit, too). This is an upgrade of the Polynesia Charm.
  • NEW: Brew of the Grotesque, for 60 seconds when drunk, makes the player look so horrible that creatures fear to get too close. Does not work on witches, demons, Withers, Golems and Dragons. Remember that skeletons do not need to get close!
  • NEW: Block Fume Funnel, place up to two of these on the sides of a Witches Oven to improve cooking rate by 10% for each funnel and improve chance of a fume being produced by 25% for each funnel. A fully upgraded oven would therefore cook at 130% (compared to a furnace) and produce fumes with a 80% chance.
  • NEW: Fume Funnel can be upgraded to a Filtered Fume Funnel using a Fume Filter. The Filtered Fume Funnel has a 35% additional chance of producing a fume. A witches oven using two of these will have a 90% chance to produce a fume.
  • NEW: Witches Hat, basically the same a leather armor, but will yield one additional brew when worn while brewing (Redstone Soup will not get the bonus however). It can also become invisible if the player does. Can also be dyed.
  • NEW: The Enchanted Broom will not quickly stop and descend when the player dismounts. The broom no longer accelerates when ascending or descending, making control a little easier.
  • NEW: Distill Blaze Powder with Gunpowder to get 2x Glowstone Dust and Reek of Misfortune.
  • NEW: Changed Soft Clay Jar recipe to use 4 clay (and get four jars) to avoid a conflict with the Agriculture mod recipe for Clay Bowls.
  • FIX: Removed a case that was being written to the log file where an Ore Dictionary registered sapling was not available for use as a block.
  • FIX: Placing a Treefyd Seed on an dirt block with an open door above it would destroy the door.



Released on October 22, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • FIX: Treefyds were despawning after some time.

Released on October 20, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Added the mods trees to the Forge Ore Dictionary.
  • NEW: The Altar now uses the Forge ore dictionary to find trees and such from other mods to determine power.
  • NEW: The Wood Ash recipe now uses the Forge ore dictionary to allow saplings from other mods to be smelted to wood ash. To disable this feature, check the option in the Witchery config file in the section General.

  • NEW: A setting in the Witchery config file allows configuration if the infusion GUI is on the left or right of the screen.

Released on October 18, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Rite of Transposition for Taglocked Creatures and players now uses Ender Dew instead of an Ender Pearl; making it much cheaper.
  • NEW: Rite of Transposition for Iron Ore now requires Diamond Vapor and Blaze Powder instead of Redstone; making it much more expensive.

  • NEW: An Arthana enchanted with Looting now significantly improves the drop chance for mod ingredients and mob heads.
  • NEW: Added portable variations of the Rite of Binding of a Waystone that use a Charged Attuned Stone instead of Altar power.
  • FIX: Rite of Banishing used without an Altar was always failing.
  • FIX: In game name of Golden Chalk was still being called Heart Chalk, now it is correctly named.
  • FIX: When killed by a Demons running on a server, the killed-by text now correctly says Demon (or the demon's name if a Name Tag has been used) instead of the localization string.
  • FIX: In Fast Graphics mode the rotating poppets on the Poppet Shelf were only being rendered on one side; the poppets will now no longer rotate in Fast Graphics mode, but rather behave like all other fast graphics items (always facing the player). In Fancy Graphics mode the poppets will still rotate.
  • FIX: The bottom of a complete Altar was colored red, now it is stone.
  • FIX: Moving enthralled entities created via Brew of Raising or Infernal Infusion was not working if they were above or below the player.
  • FIX: A Taglock Kit can now be used on either of the two blocks of a player's bed, instead of only the head part. Remember, the player must be logged into the server for this to work!
  • FIX: Fixed a crash that occurred while playing on a server when diving underwater with a bound Voodoo Poppet.
  • FIX: Resolved a possible conflict with other mods with synching client and server entities (could be the cause of Luggage entity glitch from the OpenBlocks mod when NEI is also installed, although seems unrelated).
  • FIX: Workaround for a crashing bug caused by the DartCraft mod that occurs when the Altar GUI is shown and you have a Force Pack in your inventory. (DartCraft Force Pack code does not test for zero sized inventories).
  • FIX: Workaround for a crashing bug caused by the CraftBucket mod that occurs when placing any Witchery block with a TileEntity that contains a GUI. (CraftBucket reflection code does not handle client-side only nested classes).

  • FIX: Breaking a Chalice (Filled) was dropping an empty Chalice (the same issue was present with the Candelabra, though it has no state and therefore was not apparent).

  • FIX: A Demon's bounding box is now not so wide.



Released on October 11, 2013 for Minecraft 1.6.4.

  • NEW: Infusion of Otherwhere now outputs chat messages to give more feedback about usage, in addition to the audio hints.
  • NEW: Rite of Charging now only requires small and medium white circles, making it much easier to set up.

  • NEW: The recipe for the Enchanted Broom is much cheaper, requiring a diamond instead of a nether star and needing only half the previous power.
  • NEW: Trapped Plants have been added; these plants resemble normal flowers (or shrubs) but when walked over can cause the effects of a Brew of Webs, Brew of Ink, Brew of Sprouting or Brew of Thorns.
  • NEW: Leaping Lilies have been added; these plants resemble water lilies but can placed almost anywhere, when stood on they will grant a very short-duration, large jump boost (and a small speed boost too).
  • NEW: Rite of Fertility; this rite will cause all the land in a wide area to receive a dose of bonemeal, zombie villagers to be restored to normal and players with negative potion effects to be cured.
  • NEW: Curse of Blight; this rite will cause all land in a wide area to become blighted, killing plants, converting the ground to sand and killing or infecting animals and villagers. Players in the area will also become sick. Voodoo protection will stop this rite.
  • NEW: Curse of Blindness; this rite will cause all creatures and players in a wide area to become blinded. Voodoo protection will stop this rite.
  • NEW: Curse of Hell on Earth; this rite will summon a stream of hellish creatures.

  • NEW: The Spectral Familiar has a more 'spectral' color.
  • NEW: More ingredients have been added to the Demon bargaining screen.
  • NEW: Arthana is now able to silk harvest cobweb (hold shift to break web to string as normal).

  • NEW: Demon now has wings (although it does not fly).
  • FIX: Changed the Entity IDs for Demon, Mandrake and Familiar. The new IDs should not in any way conflict with other mods now. IMPORTANT: This change may cause existing instances of the mobs (and brooms!) to disappear (or worse), so please try to remove these three mobs and broom entities from your world before upgrading and, VERY IMPORTANT: ensure your broom is in your inventory not in the world (if you are riding a broom, expect a long drop!). I have tested the upgrade and it all works (the entities get removed), but the caution is there none-the-less.
  • FIX: Vampiric Poppets were not working if the player was in a different dimension to the bound creature or player.
  • FIX: Vampiric Poppets bound to a creature that died would still redirect damage to that creature.
  • FIX: The title of the Demon Bargaining screen was not being localized when using a server.
  • FIX: Changes the default item ID range to 10620-10631 (from 8860-8871) to avoid conflicts with mo' creatures. Please note, this will not change existing saves unless the witchery.cfg file is first deleted.

  • NEW: Spectral Dust is a new drop from Familiars and a very rare drop from undead killed with an Arthana.

  • NEW: Built against Minecraft Forge build 916.
  • FIX: The Rite of Summoning will now fail if there is not enough space above the heart glyph to summon the mob.
  • FIX: Using chalk will no longer damage all items in the chalk stack, rather the stack will be split and a single item damaged.
  • FIX: A Brew of Raising will only raise mobs if there is enough vertical space to summon them.
  • FIX: A Brew of Raising will only break certain natural block types (like dirt, sand, stone, etc.) when undead are raised, in other cases the undead will be summoned on the block.

  • NEW: Enchanted Broom has received a speed boost.
  • NEW: A Kettle must be filled using a water bottle (no longer a water bucket).
  • NEW: The Kettle recipe has been changed a bit, to be based on a cauldron.
  • NEW: Significantly decreased the flammability of all Hawthorn Wood blocks (logs, stairs, slabs, etc.).
  • NEW: Kettle now shows different particle effects and liquid colors depending on the recipe state:
    • No ingredients: Blue water.
    • Partial ingredients: Dark version of brew color with black swirl particles.
    • All ingredients (no power): Brew color with green splutter particles and black swirl particles.
    • All ingredients (powered): Brew color, green splutter and white swirl particles.
    • Ruined: Yukky brown with smoke particles.
  • NEW: Charged Attuned Stones used in a ritual will now be refunded as normal attuned stones when the ritual has entered its activation phase. Consuming a diamond for each non-altar ritual was too expensive.
  • NEW: Slightly increased the power consumption of the Distillery.
  • NEW: Altar max power will now recompute more regularly.
  • FIX: Current Kettle recipe will be ruined as soon as an incorrect combination of ingredients is added.
  • FIX: Breaking a Kettle containing a ruined potion will not recover ingredients.
  • FIX: Kettle now correctly generates particles when too many ingredients are added to it.
  • FIX: Replaced the water bottle result of distilling Foul Fume or Breath of the Goddess with a slimeball, because the single item per slot water bottle was preventing multiple distillations in a row.
  • FIX: Opening an Alder Wood Door by clicking on the top half was not correctly informing redstone below the door of a change in status.
  • FIX: Hawthorn and Alder Saplings were changing to Rowan Saplings if planted and removed after some time has passed (although before they grew naturally).
  • FIX: Multi-block Altars were being registered as power sources multiple times and forwarding to the core block (not the best design idea!), this was occasionally leaving zombie registrations leading to the closest power source sometimes being a phantom with no power.
  • FIX: Saving and reloading a single player game was not clearing registered power sources, leading to harmless duplicates (a leak none-the-less).
  • FIX: Placing a block on an unfinished altar (say another altar block) no longer requires shift-clicking to place it. Only a completed altar must be shift-clicked to place a block (e.g. a chalice or candelabra).
  • FIX: Altars were ignoring nature items in a positive X direction.
  • FIX: Added a few more notes to the book, Witchcraft: Circle Magic.
