Magicum (work in progress)

Magicum Logo

Magicum is a mod about collecting elemental resources from worldly materials and turning them into magical essences, spells and magically enhanced items.


When you start playing Magicum, you will ascend from a wizard apprentice to a master of spells and magical machines.


Use the energy of Mana to direct your will and the elemental essences into powerful magic. Collect the magical resource Magicum to increase your magical power even further. Craft Mana-infused armor that grants you special effects to make you nearly invulnerable.


The magical energy awaits you. You cannot feel it yet, but it wants to work together with you to rule the world of Minecraft.

How to start with Magicum

Magicum is a very complex mod, but it has an ingame tutorial book, called the Codex Magicum. This is the first item you should craft in order to become a wizard. It is also the only crafting recipe you need to remember, everything else is explained within the Codex.

You can craft the Codex Magicum like this. If you want the Codex to be named, you can use a signed book in the center.

The Codex explains you everything you need to know about Magicum: The backgrounds of magic, the crafting recipes and magical phenomena.
