This block is a fairly advanced crafting, used to speed the process of charging wands and their variations. Any wand can be placed in it, and will automatically draw vis from any nodes within a 9 block range. While only one node is drained at a time, the pedestal will automatically switch from node to node as needed. Nodes will not be drained to 0 unless the wand has a plain wood core or iron caps (see the wands page for details).
As usual, only primal aspects will be drained. However, an optional accessory, the Compound Recharge Focus, can be added atop the pedestal. This will allow the pedestal to drain compound aspects, receiving one point of primal vis for each point of compound vis drained.
