Essence

Essences are the raw material that are used in the Trade Market to acquire rune experience in order to increase the level of your personal Runes. When traded at the Trade Market, they will upgrade your personal Runes in order to get bonuses to your stats for Guild battles and normal gameplay. They can be obtained in four ways:

  • through Monster drops (for Attack and Damage essences)
  • through Excavation Quests (for Defense and Health essences)
  • through Conquest Path Shop (for all essence types)
  • Dungeon promo quests

Monster Drops Edit

Essences will only drop from monsters that have at least 300 million health, though not all summons will drop essences.

  • Monsters summoned through the normal Summon page will drop essences.
  • Festival monsters summoned from either Tower of Transcendence will not drop essences.
  • Monsters summoned through Guild Conquest do drop essences.

Drop MechanicsEdit

Each monster that drops essence drops only a single type of essence, for a fixed amount at a time. Essence is dropped for a user after their cumulative stamina expended passes certain amounts, which are consistent across monsters (with some exceptions - monsters which have minions that spawn, such as Poseidon, will not count stamina used on the minions in their total).

When using generals which multiply stamina, such as Orc King, Barbarus or Maalvus, only a single essence drop will result even when using an amount of stamina which passes the required amount needed for 2 or more sets of drops. However, the additional essence drops are not lost but are accrued, and will drop on subsequent hits until the correct number of essences have dropped.

Excavation Quests (Defense and Health) Edit

There are 4 Excavation Quests available that will help you receive Defense and Health essences. They are located in the following quest areas:

Energy used per Quest level

  • Level 0 Excavation: 300 Energy for level, 300 Energy total
  • Level 1 Excavation: 400 Energy for level, 700 Energy total
  • Level 2 Excavation: 500 Energy for level, 1200 Energy total
  • Level 3 Excavation: 600 Energy for level, 1800 Energy total

Total needed for completion is 1800 Energy.

The following table shows for each land the amount of essence received per level. The values are not cumulative; you collect only for the highest level achieved (either when the quest time is over, or when you manually collect before that time):

In general, it is most efficient to go through as many levels as you can, since the rate of return increases with each level.

Conquest Path Shop (all essence types) Edit

All four types of essence can also be purchased in the Conquest Path Shop. They are unlocked based on your activity in the various Conquest Paths.
