Aether Core Set Strengths and Weaknesses

The picture of above is a representation of the difference between Aether and Nian. Nian is the old wonder set that had only the general Health and Defense bonuses, but Aether has Wonder specific bonus. If you want Health and Defense outside of the Wonder, DO NOT use Aether. Nian is a better option.

While holding a Wonder with Aether you gain about 2,000% Health and Defense over Nian (comparing general health and defense, to wonder holding health and defense). Also, you will gain some Health Debuff with Aether but lose Defense Debuff. As an added bonus, you will enjoy a 10% increase in attack with Aether.
