Elyos Vitality and Aether Gathering 200-299

Posted Sun, Jan 24, 2010 by Savanja

Now that you've made it up to the next tier of gathering, you've probably developed a system to raise your skills but make no mistake, gathering nodes are just as elusive this tier as they were in the last two.  Chances are you are working between the levels of 25-35+ so you'll need to do some crafty mob dodging as well as keeping an eye out for those Asmodian gankers.  The safety of Theobomos was nice, but you won't find much there to help you at this point and all your gathering will be happening in Eltnen and Heiron.

If you are in for the kinah, some of the big money makers in this tier are the meon petal used for dying armor, and nepeta and amalil, which are both used for potion making.  All of these can be sold for nice prices and reasonably quickly on the broker.

You can find vitality and aether extracting for skill levels 100-199 here or check out our full list of gathering guides for both Elyos and Asmodian here!

Aether Extracting

At this level, Eracus Temple Cavern and New Heiron Gate have what you need.  The nodes are slightly less crowded at this level range, but aether gathers can be territorial about their nodes.  Gather during off-peak hours makes things a lot easier, so use that late night insomnia for something useful, like aether gathering!
