Total Damage

Aether Applied Meteor Call

  • Aether assumes 2 Meteor Fall hits and all Meteor Explosion hits.

Aether Applied Lightning Bolt

  • Does not account for splash damage.

Aether Applied Icicle Spear

  • Average assumes proper positioning with 3 Icicle Spear Fall and 3 Icicle Spear Explosion hits.

Tips and Details

  • The improved Meteor Call is highly recommended for vertical clearing in Plegas's Reflection or the like due to its big range. Lightning Bolt can also be proven especially useful thanks to its range and splash damage.
  • Both Aether applied versions of Icicle Spear debuff enemies with an elemental effect, allowing it to immediately take advantage of this passive's attack increase.
    • Interestingly enough, the debuff does not share functional effects of regular  Enemy DebuffExtreme ColdnessEnemy DebuffExtreme Coldness, simply doing nothing but providing a visual effect on an enemy afflicted with it.
  • The improved versions of Icicle Spear and Meteor Call will be forced to explode at the height of your character's feet. It's possible for them to interact with the ground in certain locations, though it is insignificant, so they are superior in comparison with i.e. normal Icicle Spear.
    • Both of these skills' [Aether] versions are best used on tall targets due to dealing multiple hits while falling down. Icicle Spear also requires a decent width of the target to hit with all icicles like the elongated Free Training dummy.
  • Lightning Bolt's [Aether] version moves slowly when it hits a target, just like Cour de Monde or [Mod] Junk Track.


  • In Elemental Master's background, the four elements are water, fire, wind, and earth. In this passive, the water element and wind element are written as ice element and lightning element respectively.
