I found silver, and while it seems to be used in the Factorization mod, the Silver entry in the Factorization wiki is missing. What's it for?

    @Ender you can change the NEI options to only show recipes and not give you items. I personally find the recipe list to be effectively required in FTB. Jun 13, 2013 at 11:55

In Redpower:

  • With Nikolite in an Alloy Furnace to make Blue Alloy Ingots
  • With a stick in a crafting table to make Athame, a dagger strong against Endermen

In IndustrialCraft:

  • Used to make Glass Fibre Cables along with glass and a diamond

In Thermal Expansion:

  • Used to make a Redstone Transmission Coil used in a Steam Engine
  • Used to make a Crescent Hammer along with Iron

In Factorization:

  • Used to create Wrathlamps along with Dark Iron Ingots
  • Used to make Reflective Mirrors which are used to power Solar Turbines

And ofcourse you can pulverize it to get Pulverized Silver which you can combine with Pulverized Gold to make Electrum Blend, which is used to create Electrum Ingots which is used by Thermal Expansion and GregTech.

In Thermal Expansion it's used to make Redstone Energy Cells.

There are a few more uses, just check the wiki or use NEI for it.



Silver is used in Factorization to create reflective mirrors, which power solar turbines, and wrathlamps which are just incredibly bright lights.

It's also used in a number of other mods which the FTB wiki can clarify (I can't post more than two links, unfortunately).
