Aethertapping is the process of gathering Aether. In many cases, Aether nodes only appear in mid-air, thus players will need to be in flight to gather Aether. Aethertapping nodes first appear in Verteron for Elyos, and Altgard for Asmodians. By morphing Aether, players can create many of the items that can be gathered through Essencetapping.
