Basic Aura Manipulation allows the creation of the Crystal Core, which in turn allows the user to move aura nodes from their original locations.
The core must be used in conjunction with obsidian totem blocks, which spawn naturally in the terrain nearby existing nodes, before it will be able to move nodes. To create the construct you must place 4 totem pillars spaced a block apart in a square formation, with each pillar two blocks high and unobstructed at the top of each. By placing the core between all 4 pillars and right clicking with a Wand of the Thaumaturge (much like the infernal furnace) the construct will activate, drawing any aura node within 24 blocks to the core's present location.
Note: this process is very slow and drains the local aura whilst also generating flux. Bear in mind this aura depletion is not permanent.
