Notes/FAQ
Why not combine this with the Essence Items datapack?"
  -I feel that this pack makes drastic changes to the base experience of Minecraft, while Essence Items does not. Therefore, I'm keeping these packs split because some likely will not enjoy having to make their game into an RPG just to cast a few spells.

"How do I fight the bosses?
  -Illus can be fought by obtaining the Unformed Essence custom item from an evoker or the ender dragon. The second boss is secret, and players must solve a puzzle given some clues in-game to reach it.

"How do I install the pack?"
  -Extract the .zip file, you should end up with two folders. Place the "Essence RPG" folder in your world save's "datapacks" folder, and the "Essences Resource Pack" folder in your game's "resourcepacks" folder and restart your world. Be sure to enable the resource pack!

"What tools did you use to create this?"
  -Huge thanks to Thedestruc7i0n's advancements generator! Also thanks to Halbzwilling's short tutorial and resource pack found here: https://youtu.be/tvL9Z0blPC8 Custom textures were created in Paint.net. Custom models were created in Blockbench. Loot tables, predicates, and technical advancements generated with Misode's generator. Tellraw commands generated with Minecraft Tools' tellraw editor. Everything else was done by directly editing files with Notepad and/or VSCode. One function file adapted from mcEXP with Hashs' permission, big thanks to her!

36 Update Logs

v1.1.5 - Rasa Fortis (Hotfix) : 02/12/2021 10:46:24 pmFeb 12th

Important Bugfix:
-Fresh character save files should now collect EP properly without needing to change difficulties.

Previous patch notes:
New Feature: Reinforcement!
-Use an anvil like you would an augmentation table (interact, exit out of the UI, then crouch with an object in your hand) to reinforce your item and make it unbreakable! Most items cost 15 XP levels, but diamond and netherite quality items are much more expensive.

Bugs SLAPPED:
-Focus attacks can now be used properly before investing any points into the imbuement.
-Players will now regenerate health very quickly on respawn to account for Resistance and augmented gear.

Balance:
-Cleave (STR capstone) base damage increased from 2 to 6, and will now work in all environments.
-Stopping Power (TRU capstone) now also provides 2 pierce to arrows, overlapping any pierce provided by enchantment.
-The Ascendance relic now consumes two focus bars instead of health.

I'm looking at doing standalone feature releases in the future, but I'm unfortunately very busy at the moment don't know when I'll have more time for development. Wisps will definitely have their own standalone pack in the future, though!

Ok!
Can I ask how the Wisps work then?
I'd like to see if I could do it for you.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't (yet) feel comfortable accepting work from other people.
The function code that handles wisps in general is also quite messy, and I'd want to clean that up first before I or anyone else begins work on porting it to a standalone release.

Again, thanks though!

Also - would you mind elaborating on how empowerments work, what enchantments does rare loot have (so far found ballista and gravedigger), and how exactly augmenting works? There is really not enough information provided here and there is no wiki or something as far as i know

Oh, and the advancements do not work

Empowerments are the active ability system. Six of them grant the player their respective abilities, are activated by sneaking, and can be toggled on or off with the empowerer book. Three of them, labeled as "expansion" empowerments, will instead sacrifice one ability slot in exchange for increasing your imbuement level cap (potential). You can only have up to four at a time.

Most of the rare loot has obvious effects and are sometimes directly listed on the item, but as for the ones that don't, try them out in combat! Ballista acts as a semi-automatic spread gun, and Graverobber acts as a strong combat shovel that also comes with the ability to mine out blocks very fast.

The advancements are also specifically for collecting the channeler items, and the advancement tree won't appear until you collect your first Unformed Essence, which you can get from either Evokers or the Ender Dragon.

By over 440 possible results, you mean like, in total for all items? Cause there seems to be like two for every kind of work station, I've tried augmenting a diamond sword like 20 times at a stonecutter and i got 19 times "shaven" and one time "sharpened".

In total across all items. Right now, each possible augment "path" has three possible results, one of which is common, one of which is uncommon, and the last of which is rare.
The variation comes from trying different items on different tables! You'll come to find that there are many more possible ways to approach stat-building once you begin discovering more potentially useful augmentations. Every tool and armor, except for bows, crossbows, flint+steel, and carrot on a stick can be augmented!

Edit: Also, the number of 440 is outdated - that number does not include netherite, elytra, and turtle helmet augments, so the actual number of results would be over 530.

Damn, that's a lot. Though it'd be cool if there were some guide to all of this, as in what the augments do specifically, cause the on-item stats are kinda vague and not very telling. It'd be also nice to know what buff each work station gives. Also, what kinds of buffs a certain item type (like a pickaxe for example) could get.

Are Augmentations completely random and also is there any way to remove/reset an unwanted augmentation?

MrMcAwesumz
MrMcAwesumz avatar
There is some randomization that goes into augmentations, but it only determines how strong the piece will be - for example, if you take a wooden sword and augment it through the stonecutter, it will always provide a damage buff, but how strong that extra damage is will be dependent on your random result.
While there is no way to fully revert augmented gear to its vanilla state (yet, this feature may come in a future update), you can continue re-augmenting that piece of gear for as long as you like. Augmentations do not stack, and only the most recent augment attempt will remain on the item.

I've now updated the pack to support the new mobs in 1.16. I do not yet support Netherite equipment in the crafting system, but likely will in a future update. (You can still use Netherite equipment, you just cannot run them through the augment tables).

Closer towards the end of the snapshots, yes! I do not want to update immediately because Mojang might change some things regarding datapacks and how they work, so I'm holding off for now to make it easier in case some things start breaking because of the update.

Although I haven't personally tested it yet, the current version of the pack should already be mostly compatible for the snapshots.

Edit: Just did an hour long playtesting session on snapshot 20w06a, and everything seems fully compatible! New content does not have EP drops, however.

I can't upgrade skills, it says that it upgraded but it doesn't take my points or give me any effects. I even tried downloading the pack again and it still doesn't work. I'm using OptiFine 1.14.4

0.4.2 has been released, fixing many issues with the imbuement (passive) upgrades. Although I was not able to pinpoint your issue, hopefully it was also solved!

That is odd, do you get a sound effect for when you try upgrading a skill? Even if you fail upgrading a skill, the pack will tell you how many points you have.
Also, are you trying to upgrade an imbuement (passive skill such as strength, focus, or speed) or an empowerment (level cap/active ability)?

Edit - this is the text you get for a failed upgrade:This is the text you get for a successful upgrade:

Your level cap (potential) not decreasing in this case is a bug and will be fixed soon.

Edit 2 - I have a potential fix in the works for your issue, it makes the upgrade system overall more robust. However, it may take a few days to finish because it involves partially overhauling all imbuement upgrades.

Sorry for not replying in a long time, I stopped playing Java for a while. I just tested in the newest version and it's still broken, but I got a video of it so you can see what's happening. I tried it in 1.14.4 and 1.15.1 with the same results.

So as far as I can tell right now, it seems that the first login function for some reason never triggered, which is likely the culprit. I will investigate and push out a fix as soon as I can.

For now, you can try a self-fix by enabling cheats and using the command "/function essences:firstlogin"

Update: I've found the likely cause of this bug - when using "/reload" to load the pack for the first time in a particular world save, the firstlogin function will be triggered before the "on_load" function, which causes many issues. Instead, try backing out to the main menu/file select, then dropping the pack into a world save, then starting the world again. I will keep investigating for now, but I am almost certain that this is the problem.

Update 2: I have successfully replicated this issue, and the proposed fix works. However, if you want to apply the fix to a pre-existing world, you must enable cheats and perform the command "/tag @s remove login040"

Thank you for the video! Now that I know exactly what this error is, I can let people know how to avoid it as well as try to fix it some time.
