      Cooldown rates are incorrect they're 60/30/10. That said Drops of Ether is frankly a real sleeper hit. At a Level 3 node you'll be producing Ether Orbs very frequently enough to keep most of the boosts up.
      As for the orb effects
      Flash orb lasts 30 seconds and gives +15% crit chance (no increase in crit damage however)
      Strength orb lasts 30 seconds and gives 10% power
      Defense orb lasts 30 seconds and gives +10% to All defenses
      Wind Orb lasts 30 seconds and gives +10% move speed
      MP orb restores MP
      Recovery orb restores HP.

        What is not explained?
        Ether is a random buff. This engraving allows you to drop an ether every 90/40/20 seconds.
        You also have an chance to drop ether normally, and you also have ether predator which drops ether on hit every 10 seconds and gets stacks from ether to increase its own buff.
