Aethyr Ore and Aethyr Dust Locations
Where to Get it

If you’re working on crafting the new wands and becoming a revered crafter, you need heaps of Aethyr Ore! While 25 Aethyr Ore might not sound like a lot before you start with this quest, it is a challenge.

Aethyr Ore is a rare drop from harvesting Aethyr Dust. You can transmute Aethyr Dust into Aethyr Ore with the recipe sold by Loligo in Aeriel Shores or Verrin in Nimus Citadel. One Aethyr Ore requires 15 Aethyr Dust. That means you will need 375 Aethyr Dust to get the required 25 Aethyr Ore.


Where to collect Aethyr Dust

You can only get Aethyr Dust from Empyrea. The reagent doesn’t spawn anywhere else at the moment. What follows are the locations of the spawning points of Aethyr Dust.

Aethyr Dust Spawning Points in Aeriel Jungle

First, the best location to start would perhaps be Aeriel Jungle. It has 5 spawn points very close to one another in the area where the boss B’rel roams (see map below). These are a little bit too close to one another to do the simple run-around-change-realm-run-around routine. Unfortunately, you will have to wait another 20 seconds after you’ve checked these spawn points.

Of course, you could roam a little further and pick up other reagents as well. This area also provides you with Agave Leaves and Red Mandrake. In addition, you can also get wooden and silver chests here. The silver chests are good for collecting Shocked Keys, so you could consider collecting both of these at the same time.

Aethyr Dust Spawning Points in Aeriel Shores

Aeriel Shores also has five spawning points, which are also in close approximation to one another. Because this area is basically the “Commons” of Empyrea, I found this area often empty of reagents altogether. I think this will be a better farming spot once people are done questing through Empyrea.

In addition to Aethyr Dust, you can also find Stone Blocks, Deep Mushrooms and Comet Tails in this area.

Aethyr Dust Spawning Points in Outer Athanor

Outer Athanor would not be my favorite spot to farm for Aethyr Dust. There are quite a few spawning points, but they’re fairly far away from each other. In addition to Aethyr, you can also find Frost Flowers and Wooden and Silver Chests in this area.

Aethyr Dust Spawning Points in Inner Athanor

In Inner Athanor, there are also seven (!) spawning points for Aethyr Dust. Again, these are fairly far away from one another, so it’s more walking, but Kane FireBlade from the comments says he’s gotten three at most per run through, which is definitely not bad! This area also has Lava Lilies, Stone Blocks and Wooden and Silver Chests for you to pick up.


Since the release of Empyrea Part 2, Aethyr Dust can also spawn in Reverie, Samsara Village, Nexus, Zanadu, Nimbus Citadel, Port Aero, Southwest Aero Plains, Northeast Aero Plains, Velo City, Chaos Jungle, and Husk. Of these, the Reverie is another great location for Aethyr farming, with 3 guarenteed spawn spots and little running.

All in all, I’d recommend either the Jungle or the Shores for Aethyr Ore farming. Good luck getting all 25 of those for your crafting quest!

While misthead has written all kinds of guides, the most popular by far are her "main quest line" guides. She does have all kinds of articles under her belt, from a grandmaster Myth PvP guide to research about which wand stitches are the most popular.


  • Loligo does not sell the receipe for transmuting dust to aethyr ore. All his recepies are for wearing apparel.

  • I find that just changing realms in the Reverie will give three instances of Aehthyr and two comet tail every time.

  • Yo – if anyone is still looking i got ~250 dusts (and some ores mixed in) in abt 20 mins in Nexus. May have just been lucky that no one was there on a Monday night, but at the quest with the purple cloudy guy before Mellori wakes up, theres 4 or 5 spawn points in a tiny area, i just bounced realm to realm & got a ton, plus lotsa comet tails/some stardust

  • Could you please do another map for spawning points in Zanadu? I’ve bought only that area so it would be really useful, thanks!

    • Hmmm.. I’ll see if I can find some time to do that at some point. Pretty busy, but I’ll try! Thanks for your suggestion!

  • Looks like the Aehtyr Bursts now can give more than one Aethyr Dust at a time
