I cant seem to get the hang of mystcraft. Now, I've gotten a small collection of pages in my notebook from the librarys I've managed to get to (From worlds so horrible I burnt the book the moment I got back to the overworld) but I'm not 100% sure how to use them. I'm relucant to use them in the descriptive books because that uses them up and the worlds usually give negative potion effects that make them unworthwhile for anything other than harvesting their immediate thaumcraft resources only to ditch the world after. I mean, A couple now have lit me on fire upon touching the sunlight. atleast 4 have been a small stone platform in a massive void of nothing (Thank the powers that be for jetpacks). And I can't make heads or tails of the writing desk as it doesn't look the same as several versions I've seen in playthroughs. So, To clarify, I'm playing the Direwolf20 pack build v5.1.1 which includes Mystcraft 0.10.0.00
I must be doing something wrong, As I've seen youtubers use mystcraft without these issues. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
And this is what the writing desk looks like, If that helps:
