As soon as you arrive, you’ll notice many Large Jars you can break on the map. However, only seven Jars on the whole map that have a chance to give Ether Aqua which are pictured below:

You can hit all the Ether Aqua containing jars in about 40 seconds and you’ll, on average, get about 7 to 10 Ether Aqua every time, making it very easy to farm a large amount very quickly. The map also contains no monsters at all so you can beeline directly for each of the pots without any obstacles.

If you need more Ether Aqua, just fast travel back into the map and all the pots will respawn.

Using Travel Bottles to farm Ether Aqua

Typically, we would include a Travel Bottle section along with a list of available bottle codes you can use to access areas with Ether Aqua. However, the method described above is so much faster and effortless that there would be absolutely no benefit to using Travel Bottles to farm Ether Aqua even if you wanted to split farm two materials.

In the amount of time it would take you to input the bottle code, load into the travel bottle world, run around and harvest the roughly 10 to 16 Ether Aqua in the travel bottle world while avoiding combat with the world’s enemies then exiting the world, you could have easily done two or three Abyssal Stairway runs.

For this reason, we won’t be including a Travel Bottle section for Ether Aqua. The original method is simply the superior method regardless of your progress in the game.
