Break down an item to its aetherial components.

— In-game description

Aetherial Reduction is an action unlocked by questing at level 56. It's available for any class. Aetherial Reduction allows the player to break down specific Collectables Collectable icon.png into Crystals, Clusters and rare materials called aethersand. The higher the collectability, the higher chance for it to yield aethersand. As of Patch 5.4, hitting the max collectability of 1000 guarantees aethersand, with a potential bonus amount. There are special types of aethersand exclusive to Miner, Botanist, and Fisher, the first examples being Landborne, Leafborne, and Seaborne. These are almost entirely used in endgame crafts from Master Recipe Tomes.

Beginning with Stormblood items, the different kinds of aethersand can also be purchased from the Scrip Exchange with Gatherer's Scrip.

Unlock

Complete the level 56 quest Feature QuestNo Longer a Collectable by speaking to Lydirlona in Mor Dhona (x22,y6). Player must be a level 56 or higher Disciple of Land.
