Nitor are mystical fires fueled by magic. They need to be researched before they can be created.

They can be placed into the world to act as a light source, however this offers little practical benefit as they produce only as much light as Glowstone. The only difference is that they are not bound to a block face, meaning they can be placed in midair or on ceilings. They also have a small hitbox and can be easily walked through.

As a magical fire, nitor can be placed beneath a Crucible in order to heat it and boil water.

This flame seems to be fueled by magic itself. The number of uses for an everburning flame seems endless, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to produce much heat, though it could prove to be a steady source of light and energy.

Nitor can also be placed in the world to act as a magical light source.
