Aetherium is a naturally occurring form of raw aether that can be extracted from magic-saturated stone in rare locations. The process of mining and extracting it is time-consuming.

— In-game description

Aetherium.pngAetherium is a guild currency used to purchase virtually all guild upgrades. Aetherium is generated automatically by any guild that has acquired a guild hall and completed the Mine Excavation 1 upgrade. A guild's current aetherium stock can be viewed in the bottom right corner of the guild panel.
