Essentia Reservoir is a block added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. It can hold total of 256 Essentia of different types, but cannot be transported when filled with Essentia. Breaking an Essentia Reservoir while there is at least 1 Essentia inside will result in an explosion which will release a lot of Flux. When filled with different types of Essentia, the color of the liquid in the reservoir will change, cycling through the colors of the Essentia contained in it. The Essentia can be inserted or extracted only from one side, which is bottom side on the picture in the infobox. However, the reservoir can be placed with different orientation, even upside-down. The Essentia in it can be taken by Infusion Altar during the Infusion process. Unlike a Jar, Essentia cannot be inserted or removed manually from a Reservoir by using Phials.
The Essentia Reservoir's ability to hold multiple different types of Essentia means that, when connected to Essentia Tubes, its suction is "untyped" and will try to pull Essentia of all kinds towards it. However, the Reservoir has a suction value of only 24, lower than a Warded Jar or Void Jar regardless of whether or not they have a Jar Label. This means that Jars will take priority over the Reservoir, and can be used to draw Essentia out of a Reservoir, 1 aspect type at a time. A Reservoir cannot accept a Jar Label, however a Filtered Essentia Tube could be used to intentionally restrict input to one kind of Essentia.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Advanced Essentia Storage
Don't bump it
Research aspects in this block
"Most types of essentia are fairly volatile and care must be taken in its storage - that is why most thaumaturges use warded jars. You, however, are not most thaumaturges.
Using the wonderful new substance called void metal, you have discovered a way to greatly improve the storage of essentia. Essentia reservoirs are capable of storing up to 256 essentia in any combination.
Potentially disastrous mixing of the different essentia types is prevented by having dynamically reshaping compartments crafted from the new metal.
Like jars, the reservoirs can only be accessed from one side, though you can choose how they are orientated. Unfortunately they cannot be emptied or filled by hand so you need to rely on tubes or golems for that.
Picking up a reservoir while filled is, um, inadvisable.
You were so pleased with this discovery that you showed it off to some of your fellow thaumaturges. Strangely, most of them dived for cover even after you assured them the constant sound of metal under incredible stress is perfectly normal."
Essentia Reservoir has no known uses in crafting.
