Hello Wiki Members,
I have recently discovered some exploits and special tips for crafting and gaining mana/xp. Use the obelisk to smelt vinteum dust, and it will give you mana regeneration. This also makes essence and you can link that to a crafting altar using the crystal wrench to give the altar essence. Use the self-damage to gain ars magica levels and armor xp. I hope this was helpful to you all.
