There are a few key things you will need to have in place in order to get started with AE2. People do tend to rush AE2 as it provides a straightforward way to store and access items. For first time users of this mod it’s a good idea to go through everything.

Before you start it is highly advisable to have at least the following in place:

Good supply of:

  • Nether Quartz
  • Certus Quartz
  • Charged Certus Quartz
  • Diamonds
  • Gold
  • Redstone
  • Sand
  • Some sort of power system

Not having this in place or having a small supply of the above will slow down your progress.
