If you've come this far, you're hardcore.  There's no doubt
about it. 
Mining Aether is a chore, a labor of love.  Taking it beyond
100 is
going to test your patience all over again.  No longer do you
have the
ability to switch channels to make nodes respawn instantly. 
No longer
do you have the complete safety of the Fortress.  It's
possible for Elyos to come ruin your day when you're casually sucking
the life out of the skies.

The same basics apply here, but starting with the next segment, things
will be getting a little more threatening.  At this point you
might want to consider at least waiting until level 25 to get your
flight speed bonus.  Nodes other than these will be in some
really annoying areas, but doing nothing with full wing power is even
worse.  You could even wait until level 30 and get your new
wings, but you'd have to suffer through that level range being forced
to buy Aether Crystals if you wanted to craft solid gear for yourself.
 After all, this guide is about harvesting Aether, not buying

Welcome to 100-199 aether gathering.  Got your
lesser/normal/major wind serum stacks?  Good.  Let us

Simple spots, close to the
ground.  First is above the apothecary, the
building west of the brokers.  The next one you'll hit is
behind the brokers to the south.  You can rest on the Aether
structure right next to it for quick resting.  From there,
head due
west and you'll find a node above the banner structure with a lone
guard.  Loot it and rest next to the fortress flag. 
By now, you should
be able to restart your circuit but if you need some more time to kill
there is a level 75 node right behind you over the banner
You can still skill up on this into the 100s slightly, and you can
never have enough aether of any type.

A little bit higher. 
Start from atop the south middle gate, and look
directly up.  That will be Node #1 for you.  Head
northeast, land on the
warehouse keeper's tent, and turn towards the middle of town facing
directly up.  Node #2 is right there.  Now head to
the northwest atop
Aegir's command structure (the main campaign giver for Morheim) and
look directly up.  You'll see another 125 node, #3, and a 100
Loot the 100 if you need to kill some time, and repeat.

Now you'll start using the
Abyss Gate structure in the middle as your
resting point since these nodes are going to be awfully high. 
To the
northwest is your first point, above the stairs leading out of
Rest on the blue outcropping  and look directly south of where
first node was -- you'll see a 125 and a 150 in close proximity to each
other.  Grab both, and then way above the very same fortress
flag you
used before is the final 150 point.  You can rest atop the
gate there
for easy access.  Nothing to it, right?  Try logging
on non peak hours
if competition is getting to you.

Oddly enough, the easiest part.  Just rest atop the abyss gate
once more, and grab the pictured note while facing
northeast.   From
there, just like the picture, a quick trip northwest and that's another
easily reached point. 
Circle around to the southeast and you'll see a
node near where the blue outcropping joins up with the abyss
Easy node #3.  Damn, why can't they all be this
easy?  If you're having
trouble competing for those, you'll have to suck it up and fly to the
far south and far north regions to get Aether nodes with no
competition.  Don't settle for that unless things are really
overcrowded.  Then you can try going to the Sky Temple and
pick up the nodes barely off the ground, which are 175 skill.
 Put up a tent here if you do this, I sense you'll be here for
a while in our next segment...

With this all said and done,
you now have to pay about ten times what
you did to take Aether Extraction to the Greater level.  Suck
it up. 
You just harvested a couple hundred aether crystals and probably about
65 high grade.  I think you can handle that, right? 
With that
purchased, we'll see you in our next installment of Aether Gathering,
where we dance around a volcano and things get really unsafe! 
May not
be suitable for those under level 30!  Get to grinding those
levels out
and I'll see you there!
