Vanilla Minecraft has always been very straightforward with its tools and armor, very rarely providing new tiers to unlock and work towards. To combat this, many mods will add new items and blocks, but they are often replaced as someone gathers new ores. Introducing Draconic Evolution, a mod that adds many tools and blocks that allow for constant improvements and upgrades. Whether you build and configure a block-based mob farm, wield massive amounts of energy, or even infuse armor with flight, this is just a taste of what is possible with the mod. With Apex Hosting, installing mods are as simple as adding a file, so we have created this tutorial to guide you through the setup steps.


Draconic Evolution is a mod created by brandon3055 on CurseForge and spans from versions starting at 1.7 up to 1.16. Focusing around the Draconium ore, you will learn to create teleporters, weather control, advanced mob farming, and fully modular tools with customizable upgrades.

Gameplay Features


Draconium Ore

Draconic Evolution Ore

With a newly generated world, you will soon be able to find draconium ore spread throughout the dimensions. Thanks to its energy animation, it is almost impossible to miss this ore while exploring. The ingots obtained through these blocks are the basis for almost every recipe and creation.

Draconium Cores

Draconic Evolution Core 1
Draconic Evolution Core 2

Some of the most vital items created with the draconium ingots are the cores. The first core that can be crafted is the draconium core, however the wyvern, draconic, and chaotic cores can eventually be created as well. These are used to create powerful upgrade modules, blocks, and tools throughout the mod.

New Tools

Draconic Evolution Tools

With new ores and items come new tools and weapons. While each of the tools and weapons require generated energy to use, they are more powerful than vanilla tools and can be further upgraded for use. Similar to the cores, there are multiple versions of each that are more powerful than the last.

Powered Chest Pieces

Draconic Evolution Chest Pieces

Why use vanilla armor when you can use upgradeable chest pieces? Much like their tool counterparts, each version of the chest pieces are more powerful and can be further upgraded to grant you tons of power. While these items constantly take power, the payoff is well worth the effort.

Upgrade Modules

Draconic Evolution Upgrades

if the base items are not powerful enough, they can be further enhanced using a variety of upgrade modules, allowing you to become even more powerful. Grant yourself permanent speed boosts, automatically feed you, and even grant yourself an unbreakable elytra.

Each module has a rarity in its name based upon which version of chest piece it can be used in. The more powerful the chest piece, the better modules that are available.


Without a doubt, Draconic Evolution is a very overpowered mod when used correctly, however the effort required to achieve this power balances it out. The constant need for power and the recipes for advanced creations is undoubtedly confusing at first, but the payoff is well worth it in the end. With a fully modular upgrade system, each tool and armor can be adjusted on the fly to suit your needs. From maximum running speed to insane arrow velocity, this mod is the definition of end-game items. With this newfound knowledge of how to install this mod, you can gear up and prepare to rule the world with Draconic Evolution!
