The Aether[]

  • Initial release: Introduced
  • 1.02: Lightning Knives no longer appear in dungeon chests in stacks higher than 16. This is so stacking is no longer screwed up (as the max stack for Lightning Knives is 16)
  • 1.04: Fixed Lightning Knives using a gold ingot sprite instead of its proper sprite
