Warded Stone Blocks are a variety of highly durable block added by Thaumcraft 3, possibly with SMP in mind. Warded Stone Blocks are blocks which remember which player placed them and are indestructible, either by mining by hand or via any variety of explosion, to any player but the player who placed them.

When paired with Arcane Doors and Warded Glass, a player is able to construct a fort that is impervious to outside interference, including other players. Warded Glass has the same durability as Warded Stone Blocks, but is transparent, granting a view of the landscape.

Warded Blocks CAN be broken using Quarry or various Block Breakers.

In earlier versions of Thaumcraft 3, Warded blocks simply took a very, very long time for other players to destroy, but as of newer versions, they are completely indestructible.

Advanced Uses[edit]

Warded Blocks are indestructible to anyone but the player who placed them. Even IC2 Nukes cannot destroy these blocks - when a set of 9 nukes was detonated inside a chamber composed of one-block-thick walls of Warded Stone, no terrain was damaged at all. They will not absorb the radiation effect, so bear this in mind. To remove them, right-click them with either a Wand of the Adept, a Wand of the Apprentice or a Wand of the Thaumaturge.

Trolls have been known to use warded blocks to deny other players access to their own bases.

It is important to note that the Portable Hole is unable to tunnel through these blocks.

Ender Pearls used in the vicinity of a warded block also fail, and generate a chat message. This applies even for the player who placed the warded block.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"These stone blocks are almost unbreakable to anyone except the person who placed them. What is more, they are highly resistant to explosions.

They come in a variety of colours to please even the most fashion conscious thaumaturge."
