Advanced Aura Tapping is a research option under the Thaumaturgy tab that is always visible and available to research with no prerequisites. Before researching Advanced Aura Tapping, Wands recharge at the flat rate of approximately one Vis to each Primal per second and must be held in the player's hand to do so. However, upon researching Advanced Aura Tapping, Wands can be held in the hotbar and still recharge, along with having their recharge speed doubled, meaning they draw Vis from the Aura in larger quantities, but still draw this Vis at the same intervals. Advanced Aura Tapping is the prerequisite of both Aura Preserver and Master Aura Tapping, both important research options in their own right.
