Aether Survival Guide #3 - Monsters and Animals
Today we will be learning about the Aether monsters. Here is a list of them:
Sliders - A boss mob.
This mob is a boss mob, found in bronze dungeons. This boss slides on the walls and such, trying to smash you. You can kill by hitting it multiple times, using a Zanite Pickaxe.
Flying Cow - A Passive Mob
This is a useless mob, but it does drop leather when killed. Can be saddled and flown.
Aerbunny - A Passive Mob
These mobs are friendly, and hop around peacefully. Drops string when killed. Can be placed on head to float around.
Whirlwind - A Hostile Mob
Will throw you around when you get too close.
Moa - A Passive Mob
Moas, peaceful and majestic giant birds, populate the Aether in three different colours: Blue, White and Black. Wild Moas cannot be tamed, but they do occasionally drop eggs of their respective colour. These eggs can be incubated with the Incubator block (using Ambrosium Torches). Once incubated, they can be fed with the Aechor Petals of Aechor Plants. They require 8 petals in total to grow, but are not always hungry and will occasionally refuse your offer (which can be done by right clicking them with the Aechor Petal). When grown, you have now completely tamed the Moa, and a saddle can be placed on their backs to ride. Blue Moas can perform 3 mid-air jumps, White Moas can perform 4 mid-air jumps, and Black Moas can perform 8 mid-air jumps.
After locating a Moa there are several steps to the taming process.
1. First you must wait for the Moa to lay an egg, this should take 5-7 minutes. To make the process easier, dig a 2x2 hole in the ground and push the Moa in to keep it from wandering off. You will know when an egg spawns as it makes an audible "pop" sound.
2. Construct an Incubator. Place Holystone blocks around the perimeter of the crafting table with an Ambrosium Torch in the center. Place the egg in the Incubator and use more torches as fuel.
3. After several minutes a baby Moa will emerge from the incubator. As with the original Moa you should keep it's movement restricted so it doesn't wander away.
Note: In Version 1.0 of the Aether, baby moas lay eggs at a rate of one every 7 minutes. In 1.2 However, they no longer lay eggs
4. To raise the Moa to rideable size, you must feed it Aechor Petals. These are dropped by Aechor Plants. Although these are rare, each plant drops several petals. Since Aechor Plants are mobs, you cannot find them on peaceful difficulty. It requires 4 petals to raise a Blue Moa, 6 for a White Moa, and 8 for a Black Moa (Currently 7 due to a bug). They require a certain amount of time to digest each petal before you can feed them another.
5. Once the Moa has grown to full size, place a Saddle on it and the taming process is complete.
Types Of Moa
Currently, there are 3 types of Moa.
Black- 7 Mid-air jumps
Blue- 3 Mid-air jumps
White- 4 Mid-air jumps
Flying Pig - A Passive Mob (Phyg)
Flying Pigs can also be found wandering around the Aether, and occasionally flying freely through the air. These creatures can be saddled with a Saddle, and flown around without having to deal with a taming process. This allows players to quickly hop into the action. However, Flying Pigs can only jump once, and do not have the privilege of mid-air jumps like the powerful flying Moas.
Aerwhales - A Passive Mob
The Aerwhale is a passive Aether mob. it is ulsally wondering aimlessly but if you defeat the boss in a golden dungeon they will fly toward you trying to push you off the edge of the island and explode like creepers and emitting a nova of zephers projrctiles.
Known Aerwhale Bugs:
They seem to get stuck in island edges and don't turn around.
They don't seem to take damage.
Zephyr - A Hostile Mob
Zephyr are a hostile mob in the Aether. They spawn in high altitudes in groups of 3-4. When they see you they will launch puffs of wind at the player that don't do any damage but will send the player flying backwards which can knock the player off the side of the floating island. Zephyrs will tend to keep their distance from the player. Drops about 2 Cold Aercloud.
Sheepuffs - A Passive Mob
Sheepuffs are sheep that spawn in the Aether. They have a similar texture to normal sheep though they have 3 symbols like a u, n and u on their sides. Sheepuffs cannot take fall damage as, like Moas, they "drift" slowly and safely to the ground(or the bottom of the Aether). they come in 6 colors: white, light blue, lime, purple, pink, and brown.
Blue Swet - A Hostile Mob
Blue Swets are a hostile mob that spawns in the Aether. They look like medium slimes but are blue in color. When a swet touches you, it grabs you and throws you up and down. This causes fall damage and can be very disorienting. Upon death they drop 3Blue Aerclouds. When they land after a jump, they emit the same particles as rain does when it hits the ground. The blue swet is often hated by players due to the fact that they can sneak up on you and make you fall off of a cliff.
Golden Swets are also hostile although they apear to be a little smaller, they spawn in the same areas as Blue Swets. When they touch you they throw you much higher than a Blue Swet can. Upon death they drop about 3 glowstone.
You can also ride inside the Blue Swets by right clicking. You have full control of it while riding, but it can be hard to control at first especially when in first person. You cannon take fall damage while inside it and can even ride it down to the normal world. You can take normal damage while riding inside the swet, so look out for cockatrices and creepers.
Regular movement inside a swet consists of small bounces. Despite looking like jumps, you cannot get up a 1 meter rise by "walking" inside a swet. A swet cannot easily jump while bounce walking, since they must be on the ground to start a jump. This makes running and jumping very difficult in a swet.
Golden Swet - A Hostile Mob
Golden Swets are a hostile mob of the Aether which look like a yellow, medium-sized slime. They will attack by launching the player very high in the air causing approximately 6 hearts of damage. When they die they drop about 3 Glowstone. They seem to spawn near hillsides and they are similar to regular blue swets.
Aechor Plant - A Hostile Mob
Aechor Plants are a seemingly harmless mobs that appear to be a large flower and stays in one place. However, they shoot poison darts straight up into the air which come down and hit you if you are not careful. When they are killed, they drop aechor petals. These petals are used for taming moas and are also used to make poison darts.
That's all. Put in the comments section if I should do more, and
