What is Roots Mod 1.12.2?
Roots Mod 1.12.2 is a magic-based mod in Minecraft. It is simpler compared to other more complicated magic mods, such as Thaumcraft 5 and Blood Magic. It is intended to provide gamers with many additional powers as they navigate the world of Minecraft.
Before getting into more details about this quick Roots tutorial, here are some basic knowledge you need to know about Minecraft.There also mods if you are a beginner.
Unlike typical video games, Minecraft allows a player to build or create his course. It is known as a “sandbox” game, which means there are no specific rules or objectives to it except one that is directed by the player himself.
Mod is a short term for “modification.” As the name implies, they are alterations made to the game’s source code to change its gameplay, appearance, and even how the game environment behaves (for example, how a river flows or a tree is blown, etc.). “Modding” has become a common trend for Minecraft enthusiasts as it adds excitement to the game.
Roots is a mod developed by elucent, Alexismachina, ShadowGamerXY, and werty1125. As aforementioned, it is considered as a “simple magic mod” because its effects are not as devastating or wide-ranging than the others. However, Roots is a highly valuable mod because of its emphasis on functionality, which is important for you to survive in the Minecraft world. It includes both spell-casting and ritual systems. If you are a player who prioritizes utility over attacking enemies, then this is a recommended mod for you.
How It Works
To utilize Roots, you need to find a bunch of tall grass and cut them. Eventually, you will find an Old Root, which can be used in a lot of ways in the Roots Mod.
The most important function of an Old Root is to make the Runic Tablet. The Runic Tablet is a guide or catalog on how to use the Roots Mod. It provides you recipes and other information on how the mod works.
The Runic Tablet has three pages. The first page offers access to advantageous rare materials that can be used in the game, such as Bark Harvesting, Old Roots, Verdant Springs, Infernal Bulbs, and Dragon’s Eyes. There is also the Growth Powder to make you grow grass on dirt, the Rooty Stew to eat and add to your health, another healing item to take care of your wounds, and others.
The second page records all the spells that are currently accessible. It also gives you a way to have a mortar and pestle, which is needed to create magical dust that contains the inherent properties of the spells you have. It also lets you craft the Imbuer, which allows you to apply the magical dusts on a stick, effectively making a magic wand. There are many more cool functions to be explored aside from the ones mentioned, like Regeneration, Electric Spark, and Time Stop, which are for you to find out.
The third page lists some of the Minecraft rituals available to use. It provides you the altar and incense needed to complete a ritual area. Roots rituals are made to create items and summon creatures to your advantage.
Indeed, Roots Mod makes playing Minecraft more exciting and enjoyable.
It is important to note, though, that the current updated Roots Mod for version 1.12.2 has a few items already removed by the developers. It is because some have deemed the mod as too powerful, which could make it less challenging, thus potentially leading to gamers losing interest.
The removal of items was seen by most Minecraft fans as a welcome development. It is said to be an indication of the creators’ zeal to keep Roots interesting and updated.
