Arcane Ensorcellator

Arcane ensorcellator

Behold, magitech!

An arcane ensorcellator, also known as an enchanter, is a machine that enchants books and other arcana. It is capable of producing specific enchanted books.


A placed arcane ensorcellator can be instantly picked up by dismantling it with a wrench. Its configuration is preserved in the item. It can also be mined using a pickaxe, though this can be much slower.



An arcane ensorcellator is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.



When placed, an arcane ensorcellator faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.


An arcane ensorcellator has two input slots and an input tank. When combinations of items and fluids are inserted in the slots and the tank, the machine will start consuming Redstone Flux to process them. Every item/fluid combination requires a certain amount of energy to process. When enough energy has been consumed for an item/fluid combination, the input is consumed and the output is placed in the output slot.

The speed at which an arcane ensorcellator processes items and fluids depends on how much energy it can use per tick. This in turn depends on how much power is being supplied, and on the machine’s maximum power usage. A basic enchanter has a maximum power usage of 20 RF/t. This can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier, and by installing certain augments.

Input and output

Items and fluids can enter and exit an arcane ensorcellator through its sides. Every side of an enchanter may correspond to one of its input slots, its input tank, its output slot, or certain slots/tanks at the same time.

An arcane ensorcellator can automatically transfer items out of any sides that directly correspond to one of its output slots. This is called auto-output. It can also transfer items from adjacent inventories into any sides that directly correspond to one of its input slots. This is called auto-input. Auto-output and auto-input occur whenever the machine finishes processing an item, or every 32 ticks (1.6 seconds) if the machine is inactive.

A basic arcane ensorcellator can automatically transfer up to 16 items at a time. This amount can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier.

Which sides correspond to which slots/tanks and whether auto-output and auto-input are enabled can be configured using the Configuration tab in the machine’s GUI.

One of an arcane ensorcellator’s input slots can be locked to only accept arcana (books). It is locked by default.

Redstone control

An arcane ensorcellator may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:

Redstone control is disabled. The enchanter works whenever possible. This is the default mode.
The enchanter works when not powered. When powered, it stops working.
The enchanter only works when powered.

The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the machine’s GUI.

When an arcane ensorcellator must stop working due to a redstone signal and is still processing an item, it will finish processing that item before stopping.


An arcane ensorcellator can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.


An arcane ensorcellator’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other arcane ensorcellators.

Light source

When an arcane ensorcellator is active, it emits a light level of 12.


Arcane ensorcellators come in five tiers.

Tier Max. power usage Augment slots Max. items per auto-transfer
Basic 20 RF/t 0 16
Hardened 30 RF/t 1 16
Reinforced 40 RF/t 2 28
Signalum 50 RF/t 3 44
Resonant 60 RF/t 4 64


An arcane ensorcellator can have augments installed to improve certain properties or to change how it works. The amount of augments that can be installed depends on the machine’s tier. A basic arcane ensorcellator cannot be augmented.

Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in an arcane ensorcellator’s GUI.

Augment Installable in Description
Auxiliary Reception Coil Auxiliary Reception Coil Any machine Increases a machine's maximum power usage (speed). However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
