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 (Attack and Damage) Edit

At the moment, it appears that Essences will drop from monsters that have at least 300 million health.

  • Monsters summoned through the normal Summon page will drop essences.
  • Festival monsters from either Tower of Transcendence will not drop essences.
  • Monsters summoned in Guild Conquest do drop essences, though this functionality was not working properly at first.

For each monster that does drop essences, either Attack or Damage essences are dropped (depending on the monster) and only a fixed amount is dropped each time.  Initial essence drops require a variable investment of up to about 150 stamina.  Later essence drops settle at a minimum required investment of 120 stamina.  The breaking point appears to be at around 15 million total damage activity -- i.e. excluding healing/strengthening activity.  The stamina requirement is also very consistent, so using smaller amounts of stamina will not increase your chances of getting more drops from a smaller investment

Additionally, when using multiplier generals such as Orc King, Barbarus or Maalvus, only a single essence drop will result even when using an amount of stamina which would normally yield 2 or more sets of drops.  However, the additional essence drops are not lost but are accrued.  Following up with smaller stamina attacks will obtain the missing essence drops.

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 1 Excavation: 300 Energy for level, 300 Energy total
  • Level 2 Excavation: 400 Energy for level, 700 Energy total
  • Level 3 Excavation: 500 Energy for level, 1200 Energy total
  • Level 4 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, along with the amount of essence received per 100 energy used. 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):
