Wiki.png Spoiler warning!
This article contains detailed information of discoveries, recipes, or secrets, which are intended to be discovered through in-game mechanics.

This page spoils every bit of Thaumcraft research by showing exactly which aspects can be used for each discovery.

There are three types of discovery: Primary, Secondary, and Hidden. Primary research requires completing the research minigame in a Research Table. Secondary research is automatically learned by spending enough research points upon selecting it in the Thaumonomicon, and will have a hexagonal icon. Hidden research is like Primary research, but cannot be started unless you scan a specific item with the Thaumometer or craft a research notes out of Knowledge Fragments.

For details on the research system itself, see Research Table.
