Bonfires Mod is an interesting mod that brings bonfires from the Souls games to Minecraft. For those who have not played the Souls games, bonfires act like checkpoints which can be teleported to and will heal the player.
- In Bonfires Mod, these bonfires can be created and named, and then can be used to travel to any other bonfire in any dimensions. Using a bonfire will also set your spawn location like a bed.
- It also adds the Estus Flask, which is essentially a multi use healing potion which is restored when using a bonfire.
- The Coiled Sword which is a component of bonfires can be used as a sword which will set mobs on fire.
- There are also 2 items which can be used to return to your spawn point, the Homeward Bone and the Coiled Sword Fragment.
Blocks, Items, Features and Crafting Recipes
To create a bonfire, you need 2 items: a Pile of Bone and Ash and a Coiled Sword.
The Pile of Bone and Ash can be crafted like so:
The items in the top are homeward bones. These are used to return to your spawn point but are consumed on use. Your spawn point is stored per dimension.
The items in the bottom are Piles of Ash which have a chance to drop from mobs when burnt to death.
Homeward Bones are crafted like so:
The Coiled Sword can be crafted like so:
Once you have both place the Pile of Bone and Ash on the ground and then right click it with the Coiled Sword. This will place the coiled sword on the pile creating a bonfire. Now to light the bonfire, you simply right click the bonfire which will then allow you to name the bonfire.
However, since bonfires are like teleporters, they are only really useful if you make 2 of them.
If you destroy a bonfire, it will drop a Coiled Sword Fragment which acts just like the Homeward Bone but is not consumed. It can also be used to create a Coiled Sword for less materials.
The Estus Flask crafted has 3 uses which can be increased using Estus Shards. To reinforce the Estus Flask, you simply right click while holding an Estus Shard with the Estus Flask in your inventory. Drinking the Estus Flask will heal 3 hearts.
The Estus Flask is crafted like so:
And Estus Shards are crafted like so:
Lastly Ash Blocks can be crafted which act exactly like sand
And of course a block will create 9 Piles of Ash
