    Hello all,

    I've been toying around with combinations of low end hammers and different colored ingots, and have yet to find a good way to produce a decent quantity of enchanted essence.

    Anyone out there been successful if finding a way to produce this stuff in quantity?? Relics and Residue are extremely easy to make, have a hard time believing that there isn't a decent way to do essence.

    Appreciate any input you may have,

    Ax

    Gold daggers with a shadow runic should be a fairly good producer of EE.

    The luck and DI will add up to 110 or 120 intensity, even before the other property from gold and the material modifier. That should make it near-certain to get to the 200 intensity for essence.

    Thanks Basara! I stumbled upon this after posting.

    I know it's not many, but really with there was another way that didn't involve gold ingots. I've grown to where I really dislike mining nowadays, and finding colored ingots on my shard can prove to be quite challenging at times.

    Appreciate the info. :)

    Green thorns? I'm a bit confused by this one. Are you using them to pull up the ice snakes or vorpal bunnies?

    Not sure how thorns can help me with essence. Please elaborate?

    vorpal bunny loot unraveled creates a lot of essence and residue

    loot from lots of monsters can give essence. I used to worry about essence before but no longer do. I get more than I use but then I unravel almost everything I find on monsters and from fishing and from treasure chests.
    A while back I did a large number of green thorns and got an average of 5 essence and 17 residue and 1100 gold per bunny with maybe a good item out of every 5 to 10 bunnies

    Unravel everything at the Queen's Forge.

    Monster loot is very good for this.

    Well, I see you hate mining. However, DC hammers and DC ingots to make daggers works quite well too. I would suggest being a Gargoyle at the queens forge for best results.

    Ok, I was struggling with this, and did a lot of experiements....

    With a Shadow hammer (fairly easy to get if you do bods) just make Daggers. With 45 daggers, I ended up getting about 30-45 Enchanted Essence.

    Same with Copper Hammers.

    I never tried Dull Copper hammers, but I'm sure would work great.

    The stuff I got greatest success on, was making MageKiller Leafblades (require Fire Ruby's) with Val ingots with a bronze hammer.

    I was getting 100+ Enchanted Essence off 35 leafblades. This however was somewhat expensive as not only fire ruby's but Val Ingots too.

    I visit my friend Mr. Miasma - and simply loot the paragon chests. If you really need essances simply loot everything he drops and in about an hour you should be stocked up for a year or so.

    I run a second client that hauls the bags of stuff back to the house for rendering while my Sampire sontinues to kill indiscriminatly. Miasma simply can't do enough damage to kill him while he hitting and looting the last kill.
