Hi-Ethers restore 200 MP. They can be bought for 500 Rank Points.
Hi-Ethers (originally called Ether2) are obtained a variety of different ways, such as crafted with the appropriate skill in Alchemy, purchase from an NPC vendor, or as rewards for special events like Assault or Burning Circle fights. There are four different varieties of Hi-Ethers: Hi-Ether, Hi-Ether +1, Hi-Ether +2, and Hi-Ether +3.
The plus amount signifies a higher quality, with +3 being the best version, though other Ethers exist that restore more MP. There also exists a backpack called a "Hi-Ether Tank" that dispenses a Hi-Ether on demand (up to 20 times per tank), found sometimes from Assault.
The amount of MP Hi-Ethers restore depends on the accessed Ether Lores, but after all Lores have been bought a Hi-Ether heals 320 MP. In the original version, the Hi-Ether is not purchasable from shops, rather, it can only be acquired via treasure chests or synthesizing loot from the Bazaar. In the Zodiac versions, they can be purchased from the Baknamy merchant in the Necrohol of Nabudis for 1,110 gil each after the party converses near the top of the Pharos.
The ingredients of Hi-Ethers are: Foul Liquid x2, Slime Oil x1, Unpurified Ether x2. It is known as "Flask of Viscous Liquid" in the Bazaar and costs 12,000 gil. The pack can be created repeatedly, however, due to a bug in game coding, Slime Oil is actually an extremely rare item; it was intended to be dropped by the Flan genus of monsters, but because none of the regular flans actually do so, Slime Oil can only be obtained from the Orthros and the foot-racing minigame.
Hi-Ethers can be farmed at the Feddik River area of the Cerobi Steppe. All of the ten chests in the area spawn 50% of the time, with 50% chance of containing items, and, 50% to give a Hi-Ether if the treasure contains items, without equipping the Diamond Armlet.
Hi-Ether are subject to a cooldown timer shared between all items.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Diethyl ether was once used in pharmaceuticals. It was frequently used as a general anesthetic until the adoption of halothane in the early 1950s, and is still occasionally used as an anesthetic in developing countries due to its low cost. A mixture of alcohol and ether was known as "Spirit of ether" or Hoffman's Drops.
