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 article is about Thaumcraft 4 aspects. You may be looking for Thaumcraft 3 aspects.
Broom.svg This article is in need of a clean-up. You can help the wiki by cleaning up the article.

The List of Aspects shows all the aspects currently available in Thaumcraft 4 as well as items that contain them. The list will contain doubles of items since one item may have multiple aspects. There are 50 different aspects overall. (51 with Magic Bees, which adds Tempus)

Note that there is an Ethereal Essence for each aspect, which contains two of that aspect as well as two Auram. There is also a Mana Bean for each aspect, which can be eaten for a chance to gain a research point in that aspect, or distilled for one unit of that Essentia.

Items crafted using a normal vanilla recipe will contain the sum of the aspects of their ingredients. Nodes contain aspects as well.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

Every item, object or creature is bound by varying mystical elements known as aspects. Aspects describe the object's makeup and bent towards the magical elements. A simple stone may possess the aspect of Saxum while more complex items like trees or even creatures can be made up of various different aspects in varying amounts. There are close to 50 known aspects with more being discovered all the time.


There are two main types of aspects: Primal and Compound.

Primal Aspects are the most basic types of aspects and there are only 6 of them: Aer (air), Terra (earth), Ignis (fire), Aqua (Water), Ordo (order), Perditio (entropy).

These form the basic building blocks of all other aspects.

Compound Aspects are built from two other aspects. The simplest compound aspects are made from two primal aspects, but it is possible to have incredibly complex compound aspects made from successive layers of simpler aspects.

An example of the simplest kind of compound aspect is the aspect of Victus (life), which is a combination of Terra and Aqua.

To view what aspects an item possesses, simply hover your cursor over the item and press sneak (shift), and you will see what aspects that item has and what amounts of each. You will first need to study the item however; until then the aspects will remain unknown.


Aspects that have somehow been separated from their object and purified is known as Vis and is very valuable: both as a crafting ingredient and as a subject for magical research.

Vis is most often bound into wands, but it is also possible to store it as a magical liquid. Vis stored as a liquid is known as Essentia.
