how do you get nether quartz? That appears to be the only way into Empowerment in AA, right? ET void miner work? the guidebook says you need to go through Evilcraft, but I can't see any way for it to help.
EDIT: Oh lordy...thank you! I'd been looking for a way to make quartz for ages...geez. Thank you, grinding nether rack and watching the dirty quartz.
