Mark of the Falling Tower is a Blood Magic Ritual which summons a meteor of ore.


Building a Mark of the Falling Tower requires 108 Ritual Stones: 32 air, 16 water, 24 fire, 24 earth and 12 dusk. Activating it requires 1,000,000 LP and an Awakened Activation Crystal to activate.


Once activated the Mark of the Falling Tower requires a reagent to complete: Stone, Block of Iron, Diamond or Nether Star. Drop one of these onto the Master Ritual Stone.

The Stone reagent will give very low level ores, such as Coal Ore.

The Block of Iron reagent will give medium level ores such as Iron Ore and Tin Ore.

The Diamond reagent will give rarer ores, including Diamond Ore and Emerald Ore, and if Thaumcraft is installed, Amber Bearing Stone and Cinnabar Ore.

The Nether Star will give all but the rarest ores, such as Diamond Ore, Emerald Ore, and if other mods are installed, Certus Quartz Ore or the ores from Ars Magica, like the Moonstone Ore.

Shortly after the ritual is completed, a meteor full of ore will be generated. This meteor causes a large explosion when generated. It is wise to keep this ritual several chunks away from base infrastructure. Its center will hit the highest block directly above the Master Ritual Stone and destroy any blocks in its way, including the ritual. A one block thick platform is sufficient to position the meteor.

The size of the meteor is determined by the reagent dropped on the Master Ritual Stone. The lower the tier of ores spawned, the bigger the actual meteor.


The effect of the Ritual can be modified by feeding Reagents into the Master Ritual Stone. The following effects are available:

Reagent Effect
Terrae Slightly more ore; a lot more stone
Orbis Terrae More ore; less stone
Crystallos Ice instead of stone
Incendium Netherrack, Glowstone and Soul Sand instead of stone
Tennebrae Obsidian instead of stone

Terrae and Orbis Terrae do not stack.
