Draconic Evolution is a mod that adds a bunch of new items and weapons, as well as new features, to the game. These new items are very powerful, and some of the armor even allows you to fly around, jump high, run fast, all the while offering good protection. It also allows you to summon various monsters at will, as well as add proper mob spawners and grinders to the game.
Crafting these powerful items won’t be easy, and you will also need a Energy Core to energize them (and to energy other blocks and items). Energy Cores are structures that can grow to be quite massive, but the first one is simple enough. It has 7 stages, each one larger than the previous, but you won’t need that much energy at first, so start small.
To create one, you need 1 Energy Core, 4 Particle Generators and Draconium or Redstone blocks (for stages after 1, the first one doesn’t need any additional Draconium or Redstone blocks). Set it up like this:
Simply shift right-click a Particle Generator to activate the core. Then you need to add pylons and put a block of glass on top of them to deposit and draw energy from the core, like this:
To deposit energy, right click the orb above the pylons after you have activated the core, and right click again to make it withdraw. In order to deposit energy into the core, you will need to create some energy. This is done by placing a generator next to the pylon, and then adding some fuel to it. This will start burning fuel, creating energy, and depositing that energy to the core, allowing you to withdraw it when you need it, such as when you need Charged Draconium Blocks for the Ritual of Draconic Resurrection.
The Ritual of Draconic Resurrection is a ritual that allows you to summon a dragon similar to the end dragon, whenever you please. It looks like this:
The requirements for it are: 1 Resurrection Stone, 4 Glowstone Blocks, 4 Obsidian Blocks, 4 Diamond Blocks, 4 Charged Draconium Blocks, and 12 Quartz Pillars. It doesn’t have to be that exact configuration, as long as the pillars are within 5 blocks as the Resurrection Stone.
Once it is set up, simply right click the stone, and stand back. The ritual will begin, and will re-activate all Ender Crystals, and at the end, a massive explosion will occur at the center of the structure. The terrain won’t take too much damage from this, but any living thing standing near it will die. A dragon will now spawn, and it is almost identical to the Ender Dragon, except that it is harder to kill, does more damage each time it is summoned, and has a slightly different texture. It also regenerates for 25 seconds.
Draconic Evolution is a part of Tolkiencraft, but it also works as a stand alone mod, and has many interesting features, new items, weapons, and very impressive structures (who doesn’t want a cool Energy Core in their castle?). It works well, and is quite fun.
