Faelings are critters which naturally spawn in the Aether. They will try to fly away if the player gets too close. Most critters that come into contact with Shimmer will transform into a Faeling.

  • The Faelings themselves, the Slime Bunny, Christmas Bunny, Party Bunny, Gold Worm, Gem Bunnies, and Gem Squirrels are the only critters that do not transform into Faelings during a Shimmer Transmutation.
    • Gold Worms transmutate into Gummy Worms instead.
    • Gem Bunnies and Gem Squirrels variants are transformed into their respective gems.
    • The walking variants of Goldfish and Gold Goldfish do not turn into Faelings when they are partially submerged in small amounts of Shimmer. However, doing so while it is not raining, or turning them back into their swimming form by any means will have the same effect as most critters.
  • Several Faelings will spawn immediately upon entering the Aether, regardless of NPC spawn rates.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Faeling: "These scintillating fairy-like creatures are born when animals wander into the glowing depths of a Shimmer pond."
